Movement Challenge

As  busy mom’s we always have something on our never ending to do list!  We tend to put ourselves and our needs on the back burner.

Finding time to get a good cardio workout can be tough!!  We have housework, children, and countless other responsibilities to attend to each day.  I get it!! I am a busy mom to three little boys (ages 4, 2, and 10 months)!!  Trust me, finding time to get my fitness in each day is a challenge.

It takes alot of hard work and planning!

The past 4 weeks we have been working on our #mamaguns.  You have been doing a fabulous job doing your strength training each week!  We are so proud of you and your accomplishments!!

To keep things interesting and moving right along with our fitness goals, we are going to challenge you to MOVE!

Welcome to the Movement Challenge!

The movement challenge is simply this:

  • We want you to do some form of cardio SWEAT INDUCING exercise for atleast 100 minutes each week!
  • Each Monday, when you link up your Mamavation Monday posts, you will log your minutes of cardio from the previous week.
  • A winner will be chosen (via who was active atleast100 minutes the previous week ~ will be announced on MamavationTV

Studies recommend that you have a good sweat inducing workout atleast 3 times a week for 30 minutes.  If you do the minimum cardio requirements you are already at 90 minutes… add a 10 minute power walk and you are at 100!

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. -Mark Twain

Let’s get this movement challenge started!!

You can use any program (or technique) to log your daily fitness.  I personally love and use and .

We begin week 1 of the challenge TODAY and Week 1 ends 10/11!

You can do this!  I know you can!!  Get your sweat on this week girls!  I look forward to seeing how many minutes you were active this week!!

    Adding comments that improve the conversation and that really do not repeat what was already said is very crucial. At the same effort, having a newer blog by using a smaller community, I still always appreciate even just about the most simple comments much like “I really enjoyed the following post”, “thanks for covering this topic” etc…it is always nice to be reassured persons appreciate what you’re creating. This may be less acceptable a factor for bigger, more popular blog.
