Last week, I received a life-changing email. It was from Blissfully Domestic and it announced a weight loss competition and support group called Mamavation. Applications are being accepted through Wednesday the 30th, and two ladies will be chosen to be the next Mamas ... to motivate others while on their own weight loss journey/family fitness boot camp.
That started a spark in me, and I have spent this last week back on the road to good health. Last year, I found success with a different challenge and found SparkPeople to log calories, track exercise, and for accountability and motivation. This year, I'm back on SparkPeople and I've also found the Sistahood, a team of wonderfully supportive ladies and friends on both Bookieboo and Twitter.
I've exercised five out of the six days, made consistently healthier food choices, and even though it's that TOM, I'm down THREE pounds as of this morning. YES!
And, now, I'm off to post a video on YouTube. I cannot believe that I'm writing that. But, applications are via video and I'm gonna do it. I'll post the link
as soon as I can get the computer to quit fighting me HERE IT IS.
I NEED YOUR HELP! Please, log into twitter (start a new account if you must - it's fun!), and type this in for me:
Hey @bookieboo! I want @ShawneeH to be the next #Mamavation Mom. She has my support! http://bit.ly/zqUxa Pls RT
If you would tweet that out several times of the next couple of days, I'd appreciate it! THANK YOU! If I make it to a Finalist, I'll need some help/votes the week of July 7 to July 12. Then, plan on tuning in, watching my journey, cheer me on, and JOIN IN THE FUN! Even if I'm not chosen as a Mamavation Mama, I say let's get healthy this summer! Don't ya think it's time?!?
Monday night is a Mamavation TV and this week's sponsor is Lingerie.com -- check out all their delicious lingerie and follow them @LingerieDOTcom
If you want to join me in Mamavation, leave me a comment! If you tweet for me, I'd love to know that, too!
