Mamavation Monday! Goal #2 MET!!!!

Yes! I have hit my second milestone/goal!

I'm down 10.5lbs since applying to be a Mamavation Mom! I feel SO INCREDIBLY blessed to be a part of an AWESOME support group of women who work towards disease prevention...including obesity. I feel like some days I am fighting an uphill battle with my thyroid issues and stress...but I am just thrilled to see the scale slowly creeping downward. Determination, coupled with an awesome support team, has helped me through some seriously difficult days lately.

We learned a ton about indoor air quality this week, and I'd encourage you to read my Mamavation blog post, then check out this week's Mamavation TV show. AWESOME info on how to rid your home of toxic air!

Thank you for following me, I am honored to be a part of this adventure!

Mamavation Mom Week 4. BLAH.

I'm gonna whine for a second then move on. So just be warned.

I thought I was doing so well this week. Then I shot a wedding Saturday. I was up at 6:30am and didn't go to bed until 2:30am. And I didn't drink enough water. Sunday AM I woke up so bloated, it was like I was 9 months pregnant again. Lesson learned. Being dehydrated makes you take on water like the Titanic.

Yep. I was up four pounds. I was ticked. Discouraged. Could have gone into a downward spiral. But I didn't.

Thankfully, I talked to Leah, with Mamavation and she encouraged me to drink a ton of water and keep moving. And I have...and I'm back down 3 lbs. since I weighed yesterday morning. So I am back on track headed in the right direction.

I've also learned a TON about detoxing my (and my family's) personal care. Read about what I learned this week in this post.

I am so blessed to be on this journey. I realize it's not just about weight loss, but about total health in every area of our lives.

Blessings to you and yours!
