Starting the #iHeartOmron Fitness Challenge with #Mamavation

Week 1 Weight Loss: I’m just beginning. Tune in next week for that!

Today's my first day with the workouts I've been given for the Omron Fitness Challenge with Mamavation. I've received the following message:

On Friday I received a package on my doorstep. It was my pedometer and scale (I’ll get my strapless heart rate monitor later). I was able to set up both products for use very easily and I even synced my pedometer to (and linked my twitter and runkeeper accounts). Having the dashboard online will help me with goal-setting as well as show me the progress I’ve made in reaching short and long-term successes.

Last week I took a last-minute cross-country road trip, but twice during that trip I was able to go running (in Augusta, Georgia, and in Lincoln, Nebraska). I also went running on Saturday here in the frigid cold mountain air. So while I’ve been diligent, even on the road, with my cardio (half-marathon training, you know), I know I’ll feel the effects from kicking things into high gear with resistance training this week. If you see me walking funny, or involuntarily groaning, or falling out of the car when I open the door, or falling anywhere for that matter, please – be gentle. Also, I’ll be living in my workout clothes, I’m pretty sure.

I know that one area where I’ll really need to be diligent is that of rest and recovery. I’ve decided that my rest days will be Thursdays and Sundays, but every other day I’ll be sweating like the Noonan I am.*

Wish me luck! And follow my updates on facebook, twitter, instagram and pinterest!
