Mamavation Monday - Discovering Myself Through Others




Where did the week go?

I think my days were pretty repetitive... wake up and get through all the hustle and bustle of getting two toddlers up and going. Then outside in the sunshine to pick strawberries and peas, meals, playtime and before I know it bedtime routine was upon me.

On the upside, I did get in a few bike rides, walks and yoga with my children. But, I was exhausted this week and am needing a break from this non-stop schedule. What is really missing is more time for me. While I was a Mamavation Mom I put myself, my workout and my food needs first. Okay, now I need to get back to some of that. I do not want the mountains of laundry and dishes to return, but I want my confidence to find a place in this new crazy life of mine.

So this week I am back to the basics of last campaigns first week: planning. It is such a simple concept, but it works. Plan meals, plan workouts and follow through. Yeah, the last one needs all my focus. If you see me on twitter, send me a tweet asking if I am on track. I would really appreciate it.

Tues: Chopped Salad with tuna and a strawberry yoghurt parfait

How have you recently stepped up to support someone in your life?
(online or IRL)


One of my favorite parts of Mamavation is the community. Yes, I received so much support as a Mamavation Mom and I am so happy to give it back. As the Mamavation applicants go through hazing and then voting, I am here to support them any way I can.

I try to show support through comment love... don't we all need some now and then? And also through the Mamavation hashtag. I hope all the current applicants feel supported and know they can ask for help and I will be there for them. Feel free to shoot me an email, or find me on twitter (@notimeMom)
