As one of the applicants that applied to Mamavation campaign #5, I was eligible to compete to be the mom who loses the highest percentage of body weight during the 7 week campaign and win $500 and a pair of Earth Footwear, or second place of a pair of Earth Footwear. While I'm not going to come in first or second, I'm very proud that I stuck with it, and have had some success. One major success is that I no longer drink soda pop!
Earth Footwear is the official sponsor of the Mamavation campaign. Earth Footwear is perfect for moms who want to save time. According to a study, people that wear Earth Footwear burn 4x more fat than those who don't wear Earth Footwear. The secret is in the technology. Earth Footwear uses Kalso ® Negative Heel Technology®, a unique inclined sole that positions the toes 3.7º higher than the heels. The slight angle shifts weight subtly back over the heels, and can help strengthen and tone the body while also burning calories. So if you can't get to the gym, put on a pair of Earth Footwear and go about your normal routine. The shoes will do the work for you. OR if you want better results with your workout, put on a pair of Earth Footwear to really kick the fat burning into high gear! I REALLY WANT TO WIN A PAIR OF THESE SHOES!!!! MAYBE I'LL BE LUCKY AND WIN ON THIS WEEK'S SHOW, SINCE THEY'RE OUR SPONSOR THIS WEEK!!

I've been playing with my diet this week, adding psyllium husk powder and lots of fiber, etc., and so I'm actually nice and bloated, and don't feel on top of my game at all. Note to self - time this stuff better next time! BUT 2.5 pounds is nothing to sneeze at!!!
