I made a commitment to myself that 2015 was going to be my year of self-care. On this journey so far I’ve lost 30 pounds, engaged in an enlightening desire map workshop, and have rediscovered my entrepreneurial spark and have started a new business – and learnt a ton about myself along the way!
One thing I knew even before this journey is that I’ve never loved to exercise. Isn’t that horrible? But I’ve decided to change that – I’ve decided that I need to change my mindset and embrace the sweat. (Ew.) I preach to my kids about the importance of daily activity and getting outside, but I wasn’t getting it myself. I realized that I need to be more of a role model and actually DO the things I preach and get my kids involved.
How better to challenge myself than to do the Mudderella this year in Whistler, BC, with three of my most fabulous friends? How better to prove the importance of physical activity to my kids than engaging in something so off-the-wall and fun and MESSY like the Mudderella!? Being a role model is important to me – but the Mudderella itself looks INSANELY FUN. Check it out…
The Mudderella is a full-day event and an amazing experience for women, designed by women, to challenge your all-around strength, agility, and endurance in a team setting. Basically, it’s making fitness fun again! Playing in the mud, hanging out with your friends, and creating a community while overcoming obstacles like Tough Tatas, Wheels in Motion, and Dirty Downward Dog!
I’m super stoked to get stronger for the Mudderella! I’ve started training for it by mixing up walking with running, and getting on my Bowflex Max daily! The Mudderella website also has an amazing training program, complete with all the moves easily explained for you! Check out the video for Workout #1 Below!
To get myself pumped up and motivated (even on days when I just don’t wanna…!) I put on a fist-pumping music playlist, throw my sneakers on, and just head out the door. In about 5 minutes my mood changes and I’m excited to be outside and moving! What helps motivate you to train?
Right now, Mudderella has 9 US, 2 Canadian, and 1 event in Australia planned for 2015, but you never know when they’ll decide to add more along the way! Check out the official Mudderella website for all the latest info and to sign up for your own muddy experience!
