Summer Family Fun Time

Well first things first. In the last month I have lost

12.5lbs and 4lbs this week

I am very excited about this weight loss. After my wake up call appointment at the DR she wanted me to lose 10 lbs so I did and more :) Its been an awesome week workout wise for me still doing the @GruntStyle 2 week challenge and its been great to have the support and accountability with Leah, Mark, Shelly, Greta and Daniel. Its almost done and will do my measurements again. Unfortunately with my parents being here my nutrition hasn't been great this week we've gone out to eat more than we normally do around here but the great thing is its a new week and I can start fresh. :)

Also its time again for the Campaign to become the next Mamavation Mom. I have applied and will find out soon if Im a finalist then be prepared because its gonna be voting time. Every vote counts and I would really appreciate your support. This would be an awesome experience for myself and my family. Can't wait to have my booty kicked into shape by the awesome Mamavation Coaches and Sistahood.

How have you recently stepped up to support someone in your life?

Well I think the mamavation community gives us all the platform and opportunity to step up and support each other. I know I have found a lot of support in there. I also have a good friend Allison who Ive been working on getting her more active and healthy for her kids. Also My LillyBear who is a young lady at my church who has severe special needs who has a special place in my heart. I have stepped up to make sure she has a great experience at church so that she can make the most out of her time there. I love her to death and happy to say she has been able to move up out of the preschool and into the k1 room next up is upstairs to the 2-5 room.

Well its about that time need to get my workout in and head to church. I will see you all at Mamavation TV I'll be the sweaty girl on camera with big boobs lol...

Grunting The Whole way...

This has been an interesting week for us and a very abnormal week. We started out by going on a quick mini~vacation to the beach with my parents. We stayed 3 days and 2 nights so eating and working out wasn't exactly up to par and trust me my energy level and stomach both knew something was up. On Tuesday night Hubs and I went on a Party Boat and had a few drinks. It was 2 hours with none of our kids which was very strange and took a few drinks to help me relax and turn the mommy brain off some, which lead me to the conclusion that I need to get away a little more often for Me time or Us time because it was a very strange to be alone just us.

I didn't gain or lose any weight this week which is good. Im sure I gained some on Vacation and lost it when I got back.

Now on to my workouts... Which is something I am bragging about. I accepted @GruntStyle the newest personal trainer for who we all have come to love having around. Has a 2 week challenge and I decided to accept it. So I'm on day 4 which is rest day and trust me you need it! All his workouts are named perfectly. But with the support of Daniel, Leah, Mark, Greta and the other Mamavation Sistas I have made it and Grunted all the way. I told Hubs when I complete the 2 week challenge he is ordering me a Grunt Style Shirt. If you are wanting a challenge and are brave enough to accept it. is this weeks sponsor..

I've also applied to be Mamavation Mom again for this next campaign and would love some support if I am chosen for a finalist I would love the help in receiving Votes so I can become the next Mamavation Mom. It would be a life changing experience for me and my family. So please stay tuned for more information on it.

Well I am going to go relax in a hot shower and then off to bed. Sweat Monster is the workout for tomorrow and I think we are going to take the dogs on a walk with my parents... Til Next Time..

Back on the Right path...

Very happy to report that I am back on the right track. I received my wake up call and decided to answer it.

5.8lbs down this week

I have been spending most of this week really focusing on nutrition which is one of the areas that really are the hardest for me. Sometimes I think that is one of the down falls to being a stay at home mom its easy to hit the kitchen and snack. But I have really focused on portion control and what I was putting in my body.

I've been using a lot of my fellow mamavation sistas this week for support which they are always so very awesome! At the end of the week all the family which I am sure attributed to my weight loss this week as well. But I am happy to report we all seem to be on the mend. We are also heading to the beach for a couple of days with my parents so there will be lots of swimming and walking I am sure.

How often do you and your family eat meals together and get active together?

We normally eat our night time meal together, and if they are home at lunch we will eat then together but we try to get at least 1 meal a day together. Even if my husband and I aren't eating at the moment we will still sit with the kids typically while they are eating. We strive to get more active together but we right now a few times a week go outside and play or we will get out the wii. We are hoping to do a lot more family outings. The boys love going to amusement parks and museums. We all also enjoy going for walks down trails.

*Ring Ring Ring*

Hello? Hello? Anyone there? This is your


Yes this week I had a MAJOR wake up call. I went to the doctor a few weeks ago because I was just feeling yuck and I wasn't losing weight and I wanted to get checked out to make sure there wasn't a medical reason for it. Well blood work came back and I am PreDiabetic and Low Iron and I am 7points from being considered Diabetic. I totally freaked out. As some of you guys know me from past campagins and from Mamavation TV my mom is Diabetic and has lost 2 of her toes from complications of her sugar levels and not being able to fight off infection. This is very much a wake up call for me to get healthy and beat this battle with my weight. I will be applying for Mamavation Mom again.

But for whoever is reading this, I need to ask a favor from you guys. Please Tweet, FB, Text, Email, Comment, Skype whatever you want to help me stay on track and keep me accountable. That is the hardest part for me is I need to make sure I keep accounted what I am doing because I have to do this for myself and my kids.

The boys are out for the summer and don't go back until late July and my parents are in for the month to visit which is nice since we only spend time with them once a year. We are hoping to spend lots of time at the pool this summer and being as active as we can.

I have made a Chart that I hung in the Kitchen to track my weightloss something that I can see everyday I hung it in the kitchen since that is the area that can really mess you up on your lifestyle change.
