#Mamavation Monday


#Mamavation Monday


Bringing on #crossfit #mamaguns #spartanrace - So many challenges and nothing but training over here. BIG congratulations to Joanna of @way2gomom for being the Sista of the Week! This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by Pete Cohen and his new nutritional program.

Weekly Mamavation Goals - 

1.  #fruitnveggie challenge. Get 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. 
2. Water challenge. Strive to drink more water. Some moms are striving to drink half their body weight in water. For instance if you weigh 180, strive to drink 90 ounces of water per day.

My Goals -
  • The long term goal 50lbs. by the end of the year.
  • The short term goal 4 lbs. per month. 
    • January - 4 pounds lost = goal met.
    • February - 5 pounds lost = goal met.
    • March - +1 gain = goal NOT met.
    • April - 2 pounds lost = goal NOT met.
    • May - 3 pounds lost = goal NOT met.
    • June - 0 gain/loss = goal NOT met.
    • July  - +1 gain = goal NOT met.

Scale Reading -
0 lb. loss. I'm amazed. I was doing nothing but kicking abs and taking names this week. I didn't meet my goal again this month but...on Friday of last week I sent this message to my crossfit trainer on Facebook.

"I'm thinking that I must have been at a plateau or something because today I feel different. I can tell that 2 classes of crossfit did something different to my body. You know I've done boot camp, yoga, running, tae bo, spin, swimming and circuit training. None of that has made this BIG of a difference, I'm shocked actually. My clothes fit different today. It's the first time I can tell there is weight loss. I didn't jump on the scale because I do my weigh ins on Monday but I think I'm going to be very pleased with the results this week. Nicely done Shaun!"

You can imagine my surprise when the numbers on the scale didn't move!!!!!! - So I broke out my measuring and tape and this is what I found.

Measurements -
Chest = +1
Waist  = -.5
Hips = -1.5
Legs = same
Arms = -.5

Whoot! See ya hips....

Stress Level -
It doesn't seem to let up each week. The only way I handle stress is by working out. My house has become the most stressful place to be. There is no peace here. I have to leave to get my head together. It's overwhelming.

The UP side -
I'm starting week 3 of the 8 week MamaGuns challenge! The How to Train a Spartan series is going well with only (BIG, BIG, BIG GULP!) 5 days left to train. The race is on Sunday! I feel good. I feel strong. I'm finally seeing results with my own eyes.

I'm looking forward to reading how the rest of my "sistas" did this week.
And this is a little inspiration for all of us this week!
Would you do this 7 months pregnant?
