Fit Mommy Friday - Challenge Week 8

Can you believe there are only 2 weeks left in our fitness challenge?! I seriously did a double-take when I glanced at the calendar just now. It's amazing how fast 10 short weeks can fly by!

I want to just take a moment right now and thank you all for your willing participation in my and Mrs. White's little scheme. ;-)  I am grateful, humbled and honored that you decided to join us, and I'm truly inspired and amazed at how hard you've all worked so far. Even the little accomplishments that you may not think are so awesome or inspirational, are just that. You guys rock!!!!! {Woohoo!!!}

Okay, so onto this week's check in. I'm happy to report that I am feeling a bit better than I have been. {Thank you all for your prayers. They've been felt!} Now that I've started a new job, I'm getting an extra 30 minute walk in {and soon, a 15 minute bike ride} on my work days. Not too shabby. Aaaand {this is truly the best part} I now have free access to the employee gym that I can use every day of the week if I want! Isn't that neat?

I haven't used it yet, but I plan to introduce myself to its fine selection of ellipticals, treadmills and free weights very soon. :-) I'll keep you posted.

Since I wasn't able to shake my funky virus/bug/whatever it was until yesterday, I haven't worked out at all aside from walking. My food intake's been less than savory. Not because I've had junk food or anything, but because I really haven't been eating much. In fact, my stomach wasn't feeling very cooperative at all. Of course now, it seems to be making up for lost time so I'm curious to see what the scale has to say about it. {Ahem}

Well, that's it for me this week. I hope you've all had a wonderful, healthy week filled with lots of healthy food, satisfying workouts, increased energy and an overall "Am I fabulous or what?" attitude. :o)

Remember, we're down to our final two weeks and the winner receives one fantastically amazing prize package!

Oh yes, one last thing. I realize this is being posted on Thursday night instead of Friday morning. This isn't to freak you out and force you to post your check-ins at this very moment. I'm only doing this because I have to work tomorrow and won't have time to post my check in before I head out the door. :o) Okee dokee?

The floor is officially open for comments and link-ups! Have a glorious weekend! :)

I'm so glad you are feeling better!

Isn't it wonderful how your life will soon have exercise built in!

I'm glad you're almost over your bug. It's a nasty one, and I can't quite shake it myself either. I just downed 4 raw garlics to kill whatever it is, and I hope I won't alienate my family with garlic breath!

I had a LOUSY fitness week, so my post is about my fit hubby instead; if anyone deserves your prizes, it's him, except for the fact that he's a fit daddy, not a fit mommy. LOL

I am so glad to hear you are feeling better! The exercise area is going to be such a perk. Have a wonderful week.

IM BACK BABY! I have not really been gone, just been sick. Glad to be back can't believe it is almost over!

I checked in!! I did it!!

I'm so pathetic... I can't manage the simplest of tasks, I swear.

And I blew the Mountain Dew thing. Sort of. Gotta read my post to know more...

Proud of the rest of you for posting, for the steps you are making... Way. To. Go.
