It's time...
Stroller Strides and founder Lisa Druxman are hosting this month's Giveaway!  I have been blogging about Stroller Strides and my progress, challenges, and all that goes along with this sweaty, amazing, empowering, journey. If you are visiting A Mother's Musings, Mishaps and Milestones for the first time you can see all of my Stroller Strides posts here.

If you are one of my faithful readers then you know I started Project Stroller Strides back in March. Since then I have dropped 16 pounds and am on my way to becoming "The Wanna-be Athleta" again!  I currently weigh less than I did when I got pregnant! I am even happier to announce... I currently weigh less than I did when I got married!!

I am not eligible to participate in this amazing Giveaway... {I must admit however, that being a Stroller Strides Mom and starting Stroller Strides September  means I have already won! I have regained my self-worth, I feel comfortable in my body again and I am setting the most amazing example for my daughters - If that is not a win, I don't know what is!} But.... since I am not eligible for the Giveaway you will not see my testimonial among the entries...So, here is is my testimonial... from an email exhange with my Franchise Owner/ Instructor this week.

...I can see the return of "The Wannabe Athleta" on the horizon. I have been so embarassingly out of shape for so long that I'd given up hope. You and Katie {and Jill} have given me back 'me'. The girl who is more athletic in her head than in reality but doesn't stop her from giving it her all... I had completely stopped trying. Now I plan to begin running the "couch to 5k" program once the temps drop a bit. If you asked me 6 months ago if I would run a 5k I would have said "Not on your life!!" now... it's a goal of mine!

From the bottom of my heart and with tears in my eyes... Thank you. You have changed my life. I owe you more than I can ever express!

Hey, I want to do the couch to 5k with you! Even if we do it at different times, we can still support one another and run a 5k together... or even farther since 5k is only a little over 3 miles.

Shelbi said...

3.2 miles - But since I still cannot run 1 mile 3.2 is a good jumping off place! So I think I can deal with the heat if we wait until October 1st... What do you say?
