Mamavation Monday: Week Seven

Okay this is week five of the 'Move it and Lose it' Mamavation Challenge; I have to add new measurements today but more on that later. This week was better for me! I feel energized again and like I have my focus back! We walked 2 miles each day this week at the park and I actually worked out every night. I did not do the EA Active this week and have not for about 2 weeks.... I have to start again! I have been back to eating better and adding my water back up. I will have a great review later this week for a product that will help you get your water totals up! I hope you will come back and read it! I would also love to try the AquaHydrate, AquaHydrate, the first high-performance sports water, has a unique combination of ionic minerals and an alkaline pH in an ultra-pure water. When elite athletes drink AquaHydrate on a regular basis, they notice significant improvements in their focus, sports performance and ability to recover after intense workouts and competition. I have been falling back on soda this past week (shame on me I know). I need to add some new healthier options into my drinking.

I told you last week I was going to go back to my original inspiration. Since The 'Move It and Lose It' challenge is offering $500 and a pair of Earthwear Footwear to the one mom who loses the most body weight percentage I am going back to asking myself.... 'Is this worth $500 and awesome shoes?'. So how did I do.......

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
Here are my measurements as of 5/9:
Bust: 51.25 (-.25)
Waist: 48 (-3)
Hips: 47.75 (-1)
Thighs: R- 24.0 L- 24.5 (-0)
Arms: R- 13.5 (-.75) L- 14.5 (-0)
Can I just say last night was hilarious! I had Hubby and my Mother-In-law measuring me and I made them do it 3x because I just could not believe what I was seeing! I have last 5 inches in just under 30 days! How is that possible!!! I cried when they measured my waist. I mean my pants literally have been falling off (you should see my climb the stairs or walk through the store) yet I honestly did not think I was changing. Ken puts his arms around me and he says I am losing alot.... my husband says that alot but I have not believed him. But numbers don't lie.... do they?
