Mamavation Monday


Thank God for the 2 week challenge.  These past two weeks have been a little rough.  Nothing too crazy, but enough to knock me off track.  If I hadn’t been motivated by the 2 week challenge and @MrBookieboo reminding me to work out, I probably would have lazed around and had a tough time getting back on track.

During the first week of the challenge my youngest son had a double ear infection. I got close to zero sleep for the first half of the week.  The second week my older son started preschool which sort of threw off our schedules and then TOM came. I kept forgetting to make myself breakfast on the mornings my son had school.  I would feed the boys and get them dressed and about 10 minutes before we had to go I would realize I was feeling light-headed and I would scarf down a bowl of cereal.

Despite all this, I still managed to lose 1 lb. Woohoo, I’ll take it! Plus, since I kept working out, the pendulum is still swinging. I want to keep working out! Yesterday I went for two walks and I took my younger son for a test ride in the bike trailer. My older son has about 20 lbs. on him so I figured I would test it out with my little peanut!

  1. Awesome job on the weight loss, the motivation and trying out the bike trailer! I felt the same way - totally would've slacked off if it hadn't been for @MrBookieboo's motivating reminders. :) Way to go!

  2. Great job on the loss :) Love the picture of the little guy in the bike trailer. Too cute!

  3. Mark is amazing for support and motivation! Great job on the loss!
