Mamavation Week Thirteen

Watch Lives Change

Wow I have been involved with Mamavation for thirteen weeks! The past two weeks I have made excuses, not worked out very much, ate poorly at times, and overall let myself down. This morning was a new day and when I woke up and read over my posts since joining Mamavation I was inspired! Yes inspired by myself and I don't mean that to sound conseated.  I mean in thirteen weeks I have made some serious changes:

1~ We hardly ever eat out and if I do I choose the 'healthier' options.
2~ I have cut out ALL soda which has been my life line as long as I can remember.
3~ My 4 year old does not drink soda and he now eats what I cook not processed convenience meals.
4~ My husband has lost weight (almost 8 pounds) and I have lost an incredible 20 pounds (and that includes my little gain earlier)
5~ I now walk 10,000 at least 5 days a week and just today ran 1/4 mile (most I have ever done)
6~ I am making better choices in my food selections and have not bought cookies or candy in 13 weeks!

So now enough excuses! I am back and ready to keep building on this list of changes in my life! I did not lose anything this week (again) but I am so happy I did not gain! I vow this I WILL lose next week and you WILL see a picture of my with my toes on the scale! Oh and I have decided to keep a daily tracker on the right hand side of the homepage. I want to walk the equivalent of  walking coast to coast on America. That is 4184000 steps! I will update this daily and see how long it takes me to reach it! Here is the kickoff ticker that I sit at RIGHT now:
