Mamavation Week Fourteen

Watch Lives Change

I have been busy busy busy this week! The boys and I have walked 4 out of six days. I will be posting my Mamavation posts on Sunday from now on so my progress with always be from Monday to Sunday! Yesterday the boys and I went and walked around the swap meet and then after dinner we went to the park. I was so estatic when I looked at my steps from yesterday! My total was whopping 14536!!! I also consumed more than 100 ounces of water! I am going to start posting my water consumption and my steps in a weekly update starting next week (I need a week to update) 

Sunday (today) Steps and Water (will be updated throughout the day):
  • Steps= 13838
  • Water= 100 ounces
I have ate very well this week and only failed once on my food choices. I took the boys to Hardees for breakfast yesterday because I was running late and Aaron wanted a blueberry biscuit. I ended up eating half a blueberry biscuit and one gravy biscuit. On Sunday's we always go to Cracker Barrel and I actually chose well. Instead of the butter laden pancakes or french toast I opted for a Vanilla yogurt parfait with blueberries and strawberries topped with a cranberry raisin granola and half a blueberry muffin (my boys both ate the other half happily!)

I am onto day Four of NO wine at night per Leah's butt chewing ;) It is not easy but at the same time not to hard. I only ever had one small glass and so I think it will be okay. Now I will be honest New Orleans will be a difficult task for me; Kim suggests I slip Leah a few first and so she will never know if I drink. (hahaha)
Today I also tried out a new cardio workout thanks to CJ. I will be honest it is 10 minutes and it kicked my bootie BUT I did it and did not stop. My problem is I have HUGE tattas, you know my chest, and it hurts to do any kind of jumping etc. I wear a sports bra over top of my bra and I still end up in so much pain. If any of you have any ideas to help me please let me know.

Okay so please keep tweeting for me to be the next Mamavation mom. Leah wants to hear that I have support until the 30th of this month and then on July 5th I will find out if I am one of the final five to become the next Mamavation mom.

Oh and I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for honoring me with Sista of the Week! I am completely surprised and floored to have this honor. Thank you so much! One last thing: This weeks posts are sponsored by So please do me a favor and give them a huge shout out on Twitter! There is so much I like on their site but for now I think I would love to own



  1. I support you!

    Don't you love that cracker barrel now has the healthy options? I had that for breakfast yesterday morning as well and it was awesome!

  2. Good luck in Mamavation and congrats on being sista of the week - I can't wait to see you up on camera tomorrow night! You're doing awesome!

  3. Congrats on SOTW! As far as the ta's go...I suggest investing in a REAL sports bra. Not a sports bra you find at target or wal-mart...but one actually designed for high-impact sports. Nike makes some great ones. Buy two if you have to and double-bag. They aren't the cheapest in the world, but you'll be ever so happy! Also, swimming works great for low impact cardio.

  4. Jess, Your doing so good!! Congrats again on Sister of the week!

  5. Congrats on the weight loss! I know what you mean about the chest area! I also wear a sports bra over a normal bra. There is no other way for me.

    Congrats on being Sista of the Week! Whoo Hoo! You deserve it!

    Chat soon - @lovelyritaann

  7. Good work on the water!!!! man i need some major water drinking tips for you! Your doing great and keep going!

  8. Congrats on being Sista of the week. I have enjoyed getting to know you more and more. I have to say I am so glad I am not heavy chested, just hearing what some women have to do to keep their girls from misbehaving makes me happy to be barely a C. lol HUGS I have no advice.

  9. Congrats again on sista of the week. I can totally see how you got picked, your tweets are fun and your blog breaks it down honestly and shows your healthier choices and not just what you stopped doing (like the wine). I look forward to reading more and good luck!!

  13. You go girl! You're such an inspiration! YOU ROCK!!!

    Ya know..... I tried the workout that CJ posted.. It seemed extremely awesome, except... when I had to start jumping back and forth with both feet, I realized right then and there that my new bamboo floors are WWWAAAAYYYY to slick for that!

    I'm going to have to find a place to do this! I have one carpeted room downstairs, and haha... it's the playroom! I'll try to get it figured out.

    I wish I could help on the bra homefront. I'm the same way!

    LOOOOOOOOOVE YOU GIRL! You're such an inspiration!!!!!!

  15. Wow wow WOW that's so awesome WTG! Great goals! You can do it! I know you can.

    A friend of my has enormous boomas too and she bought a fantanstic sports bra from Scheels. She says nothing moves in that puppy. I'll see if she still has it and get the brand name for you. I think she originally heard about if from Oprah.

    Have a great week!
