Mamavation Monday

This post marks my first Mamavation post! Mamavation is both a docudrama and weight loss support group for moms in social media; it is both a campaign and a sorority.

So the reason for this post today is that I am pledging to be a part of the Mamavation Sistahood. I want to be a member of this group very badly for two important reasons; one I want to be able to support other women towards their weight loss and lifestyle change goals.

The second reason is that I have pretty much no support system in my fitness goals. I am alone in my home in this change; my husband still drinks 2-3 Dr. Pepper’s with dinner and asked me just last night if I wanted him to bring home cookies. No, I don’t want any damn cookies hubs! How am I supposed to change when he keeps tempting me with all of these horrible things??? Well, I’m hoping that is where the sisters of Mamavation will come in. I really need their support and guidance and someone to talk to when hubby practically tries to shove junk food in my face.

I have had many great successes this past week, but also some pitfalls. My goal for this upcoming week is to exercise in some form everyday and to track my calories every day. If I do these to things this week, I think I’ll be well on my way to becoming a more healthy person.

So here’s hoping that I get to become a Mamavation sista and that my change can truly become a reality!

  1. Wooooooooooooohooooooooooooo! My hubs isn’t exactly on the same workout/get healthy page I’m trying to be either. Makes it difficult, but Mamavation is AWESOME for support and hand holding when needed.
    Have you tried My Fitness Pal? You track your food and workout all in one handy phone app/website.

  2. Welcome to Mamavation! This group is great to get support. I find the more I participate and post, the more accountable I am in my own goals. The more involved I have been with mamavation, the better losses I have had. My husband doesn’t think he needs to eat any healthier either and it sucks. He does try to support me…but it is an on again off again thing. One day he asks if I worked out, then the next he buys me an ice cream cone. It is definitely harder when you are cooking for yourself pretty much. Good luck on the new journey!

    • It’s great to hear that Mamavation really helps! In just the two days that I’ve been working towards pledgling I’ve already felt more supported. I’ve also been buzzing around the mamavation blogosphere supporting other moms. It’s great! Husbands! Ah! LOL I’m off to follow you on twitter now!
