Welcome to week 2 of campaign 9!
I am honored to be one of two mentors for the current 3 Mamavation Moms. Please show Megan, Shannon and Kimberly some comment love or catch them on twitter (@NcCarterfamily, @Aries_Mommy & @ChristlikeMommy) to show your support. They are working hard to make positive, life-altering changes for both themselves and their families.
How often do you try new veggies?
This week I want to challenge everyone to try one new vegetable. Google it, ask around and learn to love a new thing.
This week I grabbed a kohlrabi to introduce my children to. It is firm, peppery and a perfect addition to any vegetable platter. This is just a little appreciation also for the farmer who grew our kohlrabi... (my DH)
I have been busy in the kitchen this past week, and though I have a few more projects up my sleeve ... bread & butter pickles, watermelon decorated cookies and homemade gyoza... I am planning on spending more time working out. I haven't seen the results I want for a few weeks now, but I know my activity level is to blame. Luckily I know what I need to do!
Yes, I will be sweating right alongside you in the Grunstyle Challenge. I have loved this past week, and I have the sore muscles to prove it. Puke Me Please is the toughest one for me, but I love feeling my arms becoming stronger.

BLOGGING CARNIVAL: This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by Grunt Style. Two blogging carnival participants will receive a shirt from Grunt Style. Answer the following question in your blog post and link back to the Grunt Style website. Link up your post here.
Question: What has been your favorite Grunt Style workout? If you aren’t doing his workouts what has been your strength training routine?
I am loving the Grunt Style workouts. They are simple, but already showing me results. His ab crusher workout is my absolute favorite because even though I am sore, it is the area I most desperately want to transform. I still have a lot of "Mommy pouch" and this is helping. As for the challenge, I look forward to "Puke Me Please" because of all the squats and push-ups.
