#Mamavation Monday - Being Thankful

Happy Monday!

This week brings on one of the most stressful times of the year for some. Yes, I am in that boat. This year instead of worrying about those last minute gifts, the food or how my outfit fits I am just going to be thankful.

I know, it's not Thanksgiving. It's Christmas and this year I am going to give myself a gift. The gift is called contentment, with a little thankfulness on the side.

I am thankful I am strong. I have become much stronger over this past year and plan on working harder on strength training and becoming the powerful woman I am on the inside. I am healthy and happy. My Mom beat cancer this year and watching her work to be stronger and healthier is inspiring. I have a wonderful family ...husband & children to enjoy and share this holiday with.

This past week I am excited to share that I lost 1.3 lbs.!

That brings me to the question of the week from

What is your biggest achievement of the year?

My biggest achievement was focusing on myself. It was the first time since my children were born that I took time for me and completed the challenge of being a Mamavation Mom. It was more than just eating, moving and vlogging... it was rediscovering the importance of "me".
