#Mamavation Monday


#Mamavation Monday

It's going to be tough finding the positive in this week. That scale didn't move this week. It's almost like I got a free pass or something. I'm injured, didn't work out one bit and ate out at least once a day all week long. I can't believe I didn't gain like 10 pounds or at least 5. I will say that I kept bringing half of what I ordered home. I think portion control helped a lot. My son finally got my measuring tape out that he hid some where and then all those numbers came spiraling back!!!!!!!!!

BIG congratulations to Amanda of @beeacutie2 for being the Sista of the Week! This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by SUBWAY. SUBWAY is giving away a green iPod Shuffle and a $10 iTunes gift card to one lucky winner.

Weekly Mamavation Goals - 

1.  #fruitnveggie challenge. Get 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. - I only get this each week in a smoothie. I have to incorporate the vegetables.
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. - I don't do this daily it's something I have to get back too!

My Goals - Turning out to be a lot harder than I thought.
  • 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. 191-4=187
    • February - 5 pounds lost = goal met. 187-5=182
    • March - +1 gain = goal NOT met. 182+1=183
    • April - 2 pounds lost = goal NOT met. 183-2=181
    • May - 3 pounds lost = goal NOT met. 181-3=178
    • June - 0 gain/loss = goal NOT met. 178
    • July  - +1 gain = goal NOT met. 178+1=179
    • August - 2 pounds lost = goal NOT met. 179-2=177
    • September- +1 gain = goal NOT met. 177+1=178
My Work Outs -R.I.C.E. for me all week long.

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

Scale Reading -
178 again for the 3rd week in a row. Seems impossible but I checked it with my hand weights. It makes sense though since it showed up in other places!

Stress Level -
I'm on solo kid duty again. I don't find that stressful any more by itself. The injury has really sent me on a tail spin of guilt and inconvenience paired with a lot of pain. I can't stand being injured. I miss the gym, my friends, my me time, my clothes having more room and feeling like I've accomplished something.

The UP side -
I'm healing. It's slow but I'm home for another week. I'm going to try to start the 100/200/200 back up slowly. I want to make sure I go in the gym 100%. I'm not going back until I'm completely healed.

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!

I'm always hunting workout music which you will find in my DJ Booth at You can search the #mamavation hashtag or #workouttunes to see my lists. If you have any music suggestions leave them in the comment section!
