I’m So Ready for This Getting Fit Stuff!

Dear Bookieboo & my fellow Mamavation Sistas, First off, I'd like to say Happy Fourth of July to everyone! As most of you will be out and about watching what you eat at all the functions, I will be safely at home with healthy food while thinking about getting fit. :) We've decided to do our own … [Read more...]

Let Me Introduce You to My “Fit Friend”

When @bookieboo first mentioned we find a "fit friend" I was thinking, oh that's easy - I'll choose my fiancé. I mean he is right along with me for this ride (I'm just pushing myself a little more). Then Leah make "the post." This post said no spouses. Okay, that's … [Read more...]

The Changes are Making Their Rounds!

So my week was half and half. The first half was not so good. Then @bookieboo basically said not to wait and get our rear's in gear! Monday I was disappointed that I had gained three whole pounds in a week and I think I didn't eat well that day. I did move my computer from the table next to the … [Read more...]

WAT-AAH! Review

This review came at such a great time considering our new lifestyle change. Part of our change is that I want my family to only drink water (besides my one glass of orange juice in the morning). So when WAT-AAH! gave me the chance to complete a review AND host a giveaway, I didn't refuse. WAT-AAH! … [Read more...]

@lovelyritaann for the next Mamavation Mom!

I'm really excited to write this Mamavation Monday post and disappointed all at the same time. The excitement comes from today being the first day to apply to be a Mamavation Mom! The disappointment comes from my past week and my weigh-in today. My challenges this week were being active with … [Read more...]

Better Late Than Never

Yesterday was such a crazy day. I figured this post is better late than never. At first, I was just busy because we had company for a few days and they were leaving yesterday. Before they even left, I got a call from my 14 year old son asking who his dentist was. My first thought was he had a … [Read more...]

A Small, Slow Moving Start…

 This week is sponsored by EA Sports Active. They're giving away a copy of More Workouts. I don't know about you but I could use "more workouts." My emotions are slightly mixed this Mamavation Monday as I'm off to a slow moving start. I was hoping for slightly bigger results; … [Read more...]

Let the Weigh-Ins Begin!

On Friday, Big Daddy and I went shopping in Chico. I bought a new scale for my weigh-ins. Let me tell you, this scale is awesome! You can program up to four different people and it will save 12 readings for each person. It shows you your weight, body fat, body mass, water hydration and you can even … [Read more...]

My A-Ha moment led to this…

The other night, after everyone was in bed, I was sitting my overweight butt on the couch writing my "Five Fun Family Activities Your Kids Will Love" post. This posting has pictures of our family outings, etc. To post these pictures, I had to dig some up on my computer. Sorting through … [Read more...]

No More Excuses!

It wasn't too long ago that I thought women used "getting comfortable within their relationship" as an excuse for whatever was lacking in their lives. I've become one of those women. I am a statistic. Bobby and I have been together for almost three years now. Since then, I've slacked in … [Read more...]
