Mamavation Monday: The Big Move


So yesterday we officially moved into our new home. How awesome is that?! I’m stoked! WE OWN A HOME. That’s pretty exciting to say. We still have a ton of unpacking to do and rearranging. Plus we need to make a big grocery trip on top of buying some new items we need for the house and Christmas. This will end up being a very expensive month.

I’ve been continuing my workout classes that I really enjoy but I’m running into a problem. I’ll be babysitting weekdays and that time runs into the time of the classes, so I’ll need to find a way around that. I’m a little bummed because I really enjoyed doing this with my mom. She has been recruiting my aunt and trying with my sister so if they both join I’ll be even more bummed. I might have to start taking the morning classes alone.

Weight Watchers has been great for me! Whatever weight I lost before I had gained back and now I’m down to a total loss of 3 pounds so far. Only after 3 weeks of doing this. I enjoy WW a lot. I feel great, I have more energy and I really feel like I’m learning portions way better. My only problem is getting myself to eat multiple meals. So many times I find myself not eating until noon, or in yesterday’s case, 3 pm. Oh and WATER. I really need to get better about water.

Please continue to keep all of the victims of the recent shooting in your prayers/thoughts/good vibes. My heart is with all of them. I’ve never really thought this hard about how blessed I truly am, and I wish these parents and families didn’t have to go through such a terrible terrible situation.

I’m pretty excited about tonight’s Mamavation TV. We are learning about backyard gardening which is something I will definitely be getting into now that I’m in my own house!

Mamavation Monday: I’m Baaaack!


So, I had a wee bit of a leave. It wasn’t long, but I had a crazy busy past few weeks. Everything is starting to calm down. Thank the stars. Now all that is left is a final exam on the 11th, closing on our house sometime this week (hopefully), Christmas shopping and crafting, and then once I’m in the house its decorating time. It it a great feeling settling down after a busy time and enjoying relaxing again. I’ve started Weight Watchers and I’ve been going to workout classes with my mom that are kicking my soon-to-be-hot booty. So far in my first week with WW I’ve lost 1.2 pounds. Its a start! My official weekly weigh-in is tomorrow.


I want to thank all my Mamavation sisters who stood by my side while I was away for a little while. Thanks, ladies! You are all so amazing!
