A couple of weeks ago I participated in the Mamavation #2WeekChallenge. It's a great two week workout challenge put on by Leah and her husband Mark of the Mamavation Sisterhood. You can read about it here.
I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the experience! The workouts were quick circuit workouts that were easy to complete, but yet challenging enough that you felt the burn the next day (and then some!). They were enjoyable workouts too! Being a busy mom, I appreciated that I could complete most workouts in around 15 minutes. Yes, fifteen!
The end of the two weeks was celebrated with a virtual 5k....Yes I said celebrated. I love running so for me to get to do something I love to finish the challenge, it was a celebration!
Every day when I would tweet to Mark that I had completed the workout, he was encouraging. He always had something kind to say. In fact, he wasn't the only one! Many of the other moms completing the challenge with myself would often "tweet" back a "congrats" or "way to go". That's the thing. ALL the moms taking the challenge were uplifting each other with kind words. It was kind of empowering to know that I, no WE did it and we weren't alone!
I loved the experience and can't wait for the next two week challenge....rumor has it there will be another in July. Will you join us?
