Mamavation Monday – On a Tuesday

Just another Manic Monday…oh and Mamavation Monday.  Looks like I missed last week since I’ve been crazy busy at work.  Except that it’s ya know…Tuesday night.  Sigh. See? This is how life gets away from me. And I’ll admit to my share of getting buried in funneh pictures and Facebook updates.  Anyhow…it’s been two weeks since my last update. WOW. Sorry about that!  I had my last weigh-in of our local Biggest Loser challenge and am proud to say that I ended it with a loss!  Woo!  Thank you to everyone who has supported me through the past ten weeks and will continue to support me beyond. I love you guys.

In the last two weeks the Mamavation group has ended and started a new #2weekchallenge with Jon and I plugging right along.  I am thrilled to say that I and another awesome woman won the last #2weekchallenge!  I will say that I don’t feel pushed as hard with this challenge and have been giving myself time to slack off in the last two weeks.  I have a feeling that coincides with the not staying responsible to the group or being adult enough to even post here despite my schedule.

Healthy Living Breakdown

Exercise: We started a new GruntStyle/Mamavation #2weekchallenge last week and am now a full 8 days into it.  I’m getting more winded at the end, but am not nearly as sore.  I don’t feel like I’m getting as good a workout as I should be. So obviously I can’t be doing this all right.  I desperately want to see some waist shrinkage…and some bottom perkage too. What is your favorite exercise?

Water: Still? Still. I am a slacker. HOW are you getting all your water?

Eating Habits: Yeah. This is not so good. I have totally stopped being diligent in the last two weeks since finishing the Biggest Loser contest and the #2weekchallenge.  NOT GOOD. I have got to get myself back under control, eat some of this produce I am letting go bad in the fridge and stay away FAR AWAY from the snacks. What are you snacking on this week?

Alright. Here’s my weigh-in picture for the week to keep me motivated and keep me strong!
