Mama-vate Me! It's Mamavation Monday

I hate being "needy". I guess there are times in every Mama's life when she has to break down and ask for help. Right? Sometimes it is as simple as help with the housework, and other times it is bigger. Sometimes it involves the "D" word (diet)... but, it also might involve exercise or will power. I think all Mamas trying to loose weight need support and encouragement, but not everyone is willing to ask for it. I guess that is how I see the Sistahood. I am able to support other mamas working hard to live a healthy life, and quietly I am asking for their support, also. I am really excited to announce that last week I was accepted into the group. So not only do I have a great group of gals to support, but I will also have them to help motivate me. Yippee!

Last week I weighed myself at 209, and was rather bummed out. I promised after my first child was born that I wouldn't let myself get over 200 lbs again... I hadn't realized I was that big. But, tonight I was given a little surprise. Maybe it was the positive break I was looking for, but I figured out that my scale was off! I have two little ones and I guess someone must have fiddled with the calibration. So, this week I will be starting out at 190... and I have only down to go. I have been working on my jumping jacks, and now the treadmill has been unburied. So, I am slowly rolling.

This week my goal includes spending some quality time with the treadmill and also get outside with the double stroller. Good for me and the kids. I am also going to attempt to eat in all week and experiment with some new fresh recipes utilizing the local in season produce. I can do this! Little steps here. But, it all adds up for the end goal of a better me.

Okay, so that's my update for this week... thanks for joining me on this ride. I love comments, so let me know what you think.
