Mamavation Monday: Week Four

So this is week two of the 'Move it and Lose it' Mamavation Challenge. This week was challengeing because we are working on helping my Mother in Law and Father in Law move and because well it was just an off week for me. Most of you know my Husband works and lives two hours away from me and I only get to see him if he has two consecutive days off. Well I went almost three weeks without seeing him. Anyways I have made myself work out on the Wii Fit for at least 30 min a day, I am doing the EA Active workout each day (thank goodness tonight is a rest night but I have actually followed through and not missed one day), and the kids and I go to the park and walk the 2 mile walking trail each day. I will admit I am so proud of myself! Normally by now I have come up with enough excuses to give up. Especially as the work outs get harder or when I am just having a rough day.

Another neat thing is I am doing so much better about adding in healthier foods. I love All White Eggs and am finding little things like this to help me eat better and to be honest I don't notice all the bad things are gone. Oh before I forget here is a picture from our latest walk. This is a perfect example of why I want to be a kid again!

Here are my measurements as of 4/12:
Bust: 51.5
Waist: 51.0
Hips: 48.75
Thighs: R- 24.0 L- 24.5
Arms: R- 14.25 L- 14.5
Current Stats: 


  • Weight: 214 (-8 total -1 this week)
  • Height:  5'8
  • BMI:    32.6 (- 1.2)

Current Goals:

  • Drink 80 ounces of water a day
  • Work out on the Wii Fit for 60 minutes daily
  • Don't eat after 7 pm
  • No soda drinking
  • Weigh 150 pounds
  • No soda drinking
  • Work out 90 min daily 
  • BMI 22.8
Okay so how did I do this week on my goals? I have had no soda for two weeks and am averaging 80 ounces of water a day! I still have a little work to do on the no eating after 7pm but I am managing that about 5 of the 7 days. I have lost another pound... yeah me! I will also be measuring myself next week, I am interested to see if there is any difference there!

I am so happy with my progress and I know I could not have done this without the support of the Mamavation sistas. Want to know more about being apart of Mamavation? Head over here and read all about it. Just us tonight and you could win some great prizes!


  1. GREAT JOB!!! You ARE sticking to it. I love having you as an inspiration partner. Thank you for all of your support. You're doing great. I empathize with the husband being away. Mine travels a lot and it is very stressful being a single mommy on top of everything else. But you are doing great. Esp proud of the elimination of soda. That is HUGE for your health. xoxox

  5. Great job this week. I love all you ladies banding together for the Move It or Lose It. Show that silly soda who is boss, you don't need it.

  6. So great to see some one else my height and weight doing this!! I started in Febuary at 5 foot 8 and 227 lbs. I go to the gym 4 days a week and try to walk with the kids or go to the park for another 2 days. I now weight 216 and have a long way to go. Hang in there for sure!! I do not miss the junk food at all (kids do though) I feel better. I also quit the soda, My head hurt bad for 3 days but now I feel so much better. I have gone from 4 min on that elliptical machine to 45 min. that thing was terrible in the beginning. I will watch your blog and see how you are doing!! good luck and stick with it!!
