Featured Fit Yummy Mummy: Maria!

So I was signed up for a 5k race this morning and haven't really done any 'training' for it.

By training I mean the traditional, running long boring miles and miles everyday.

I have run 3 times since January and the farthest I went one day was 4 miles. The other 2 times I only went 2 but incorporated some sprint intervals in. BUT, I have been working out the Fit Yummy Mummy way of course. It's the only way I workout.

3 intervals sessions and 3 strength training sessions a week and being pretty good about what I put into my body.

So we (my sister and I) get to the start of the race and she says, let's do the 10k instead! I was like, 'what the blazes'? But since I am an easygoing person I said sure ok. So we switched and ran the 10k!!

I quickly set a goal to run the whole race without having to walk at all. No matter my pace I did not want to have to walk any of it. So the starting gun went off and we were off as well. The first mile was horrible. I got an awful side ache and couldn't seem to shake it until mile 2 but we still kept running!

It went away and I was able to start enjoying the run and we talked and ran the whole blasted thing!!


It was a beautiful course, mostly along the river. When we got to where we could see the finish line we both gave everything we had left and sprinted to the end (I just told myself I was doing an inervalRazz)!

We did it! We both finished a 10k race and we did it together!!!!

I have no idea what my time was yet - there were some issues with the timing chips - but I know we did it in under an hour and that is what I was hoping for!

So today I ran 6 miles for the first time in my life and the only way I was able to is because of my intense Fit Yummy Mummy workouts.

So not only do they help you to lose fat, they helped me "train" for a 10k race!

Thanks Holly!!"

Maria's Fit Yummy Mummy Story

"I am a busy mom to 5 wonderful children. The oldest is 11 and my baby just turned 2. So needless to say I am very short on time and only have a short window to get in exercise.

Maria Mom of Five

I am so thankful I found Holly and Fit Yummy Mummy. I was at a point where I was feeling so fat and down on myself. I was faithfully working out 5 days a week running and doing exercise videos but nothing was changing. I was so frustrated. Then I found Fit Yummy Mummy! I knew it was the answer I was searching for.

I started right away. It was hard for me, but I quit running and focused on following the Fit Yummy Mummy plan to the letter. Almost instantly I started noticing results. I had energy through the roof and my clothes were getting looser.

I still found that runner's high during intervals. I had great success!! I was even chosen as a finalist in the first transformation challenge held at ClubFYM!"
