Finalists Announced..

Well Its been a week... Its a been a good week with some stressful events but hey, That's life especially when you live in one with Special Needs children.. But lets get business taken care of first...

3.8 lbs down and I lost inches in the GruntStyle Challenge

I finished the challenge and was very proud of myself. I am also very thankful for all the support and cheerleading I got especially from Mark, Shelly, Leah, Greta and Daniel. I enjoyed Mamavation TV Monday with our Guest host Shelly who did an awesome job. I have really enjoyed the last few weeks of getting to know my fellow applicants. They are all wonderful special women and I know that with or without being Mamavation Mom they will all succeed in their weight loss and fitness goals that they have made for themselves.

This week was great to get back to the norm around here. Really getting track on the eating habits for the whole family. As my middle son has told me so many times this week. I am the role model for our family, and as Mothers we really are. Its my job to teach them these tools now so that later on they won't have to struggle with being active and healthy. I was very proud of myself for not caving in this week with sweets and doughnuts. I did have 1 drink this week, Im human and I slip up. But I fessed up and did my Penance (4 60 sec Planks.. and I DESPISE planks which is why Leah made me do it, but I didn't complain I did it)

How did well did you manage to eat healthy over the holiday weekend (4th of July & Canada Day)? Any tips for the rest of the summer?

We I think have done really well this holiday weekend. We loaded up on our year supply of charcoal *home depot had a GREAT sale* So we have grilled out our main meal for the past few nights and its been so darn hot we've been eating very light foods and veggies.
