Monday Can Be a Great Day!

My big news ... I decided to apply to be Mamavation Mom because I gained back five pounds in just a few weeks. I'm happy to report that I LOST FIVE POUNDS this past week!! YEAH! I've been following @RachelSteffen's exercise challenge, watching what I eat, and just moving more - even while volunteering for two days straight at the Women of Faith conference that came to town. YEAH!!

Well, it's Mamavation Voting Week. And while I was not selected to be a finalist (sad but true, my second time not selected), I am excited to see who wins ... my hope is that


gets one of the spots - she was my "fit friend" in the last campaign and very sweet, kind lady. The other finalists are:

@its_gail, @momma_oz, @CJinKY, @bodhi_bear, @Couponprincess

Subway is offering up a green iPod shuffle and a $10 iTunes gift card for our giveaway this week. (This giveaway will go to the blogging carnival winner only.) Leah is going to be giving away Dance with Julianne Just Dance Fitness DVD during Mamavation TV.

Special Guest: Mamavation Finalists

(If you are a Finalists, you need to be on the show ready to talk 5 minutes before we start.)

Voting: October 11 to 18th
Mamavation Launch Party: October 18th
Campaign #6: October 18th to November 29th

MAMAVATION TV: Join us Monday night at 7pm PST/10pm EST on Mingle Media TV.

SISTA OF THE WEEK: And a BIG congratulations to Amanda of @beeacutie2 for being the Sista of the Week! So excited to see someone who is pregnant working so hard on being healthy.

BLOGGING CARNIVAL: This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by SUBWAY. SUBWAY is giving away a green iPod Shuffle and a $10 iTunes gift card to one lucky winner. All you have to do is mention the Commit to Fit Campaign and Jared on their Mamavation Monday post. I really enjoyed Leah's video of their NYC trip to run with Jared - just wish the sound and picture quality was better but it was great "being" there.

PS -
Rachel’s Movement Challenge

I forgot to include that this week’s total minutes were 105 of sweat-inducing exercise. Wondering what the Movement Challenge is? Check it out here on Mamavation.

Congrats on the five pounds, that is awesome! Also have a great time with that conference. I have to agree, Rachel will make a wonderful campaign mother since she is sweet, determined, and inspiring.
