Tough Mudder

Carman’s First 90 Day Challenge Story :)

I LOVE that the Body by Vi 90 day Challenge now has added a Fitness and an Active category along with Weight Loss!

Carman – 34 (at the time of event) :) 

Which challenge kit did you use? 
Fit Kit

What is your favorite recipe? 
Shrek Shake

What was your Challenge Goal? 
This was my 1st 90 day challenge and it was to train and complete my 1st Tough Mudder in Austin, TX with my FireLitesFire gals/sisters-in-law; Lexy & Cyndi and my brothers-in-law; Torry & Keller and some amazing church friends. :)

Did you exercise? If so, what type of exercise did you enjoy? 
We did circuit training, weight training, workouts at the track with sprints, monkey bars, low crawling, etc and Saturday long runs.

Which of your personal goals have you achieved?
Having previously done half marathons and a marathon, the Tough Mudder was one of the most challenging events I’ve done! It was a CRAZY AMAZING experience and getting to do this 12 mile 22 obstacle event as a team with my family members was what I loved most!! I loved training with some amazing athletes who inspired me daily and weekly. My biggest achievement was that I was able to complete every obstacle with my team/family, except those dang greased monkey bars – which I attempted TWICE!!, and I felt amazing when I was done!! :)

Is there anything else you want to tell us?
I could tell a HUGE difference in my endurance and athletic ability in my training for this Tough Mudder from getting in two Vi-shakes a day as part of my 5-6 small meals despite my diet not being perfect. The nutrition in these shakes is by far the best I have ever put into my body and trained with. I also LOVE that I can focus on a a new goal every 90 days! It is life changing!! :)

What is your next 90 Day Challenge Goal?
My next 90 day Challenge is to focus on dropping 5-10% bodyfat so that I can become leaner and stronger than I’ve ever been. It’s also a goal of mine to see some hawt mama abs for the first time ever!! I will also be running the Houston Rodeo 10K run in February and plan to beat my previous 2 years run times. :)

Check out my blog post on lessons learned from doing the TM. :)

Worlds Largest Giving Day

Here’s a little video from our Visalus Giving Day and to show that Vi Cares on how we did our part to help create the Worlds Largest Giving Day and a million moments of kindness. My kids went through their clothes, jackets, hats and gloves they are no longer using and we donated them along with helping out in a parking lot. :) I love how serving others can change our attitudes and put a smile on our face and those we serve! :)

It was a great reminder to look for ways to serve others DAILY not just on special occasions or holidays. I will be helping my kids remember and create a better habit of doing this daily.
