Sista of the Week ~10

Can you believe we have been honoring supportive sista’s for 10 weeks now?! Its amazing that we have a great group of women apart of the Mamavation Sistahood. You guys are the reason this is possible! You make the Mamavation Sistahood what it is, supportive and loving.

This weeks Sista of the Week is a super hard worker! She has a super intense and busy schedule but she still tweets out to us and comments on post every Monday. She has challenges of her own but sets out to help others in their own journey. She keeps it real and honest. She can always be counted on to shout out to someone who needs a boost.

3.Mamavation Goals:

GET HEALTHY! I’m in what’s considered a “healthy weight range,” but you know what? I am NOT healthy in my habits, therefore, I am facing a life that could be not so great in my older years – ie diabetes from my insane 4+ cans of coke per day addiction (which I have recently started getting in check thanks to my AWESOME sistas!!) Plus I have horrible family genetics, food quality and nutrition are my only prayer against these yucky things!

As many of you have seen I have recently quit smoking. I have tried and tried so many times in the past – I feel like a crack addict sometimes! This time it’s different. I am still using my gum, yes. But this time, I have two AWESOME quit buddies that have been so incredibly supportive that words could never express my gratitude! @mentallyinked and @CjinKY you two have been awesome!!!!!! (As has the rest of the sistahood, but I harass these two the most!)

My other goals for Mamavation are fitness related. I want to be that crazy 70 year old granny going on nature hikes, rock climbing, running a marathon every year. I want to feel GOOD in my old age. I do not want to have to have help walking everywhere. I don’t want to walk around with an oxygen tank and sound like one of those popcorn vacuum cleaners kids play with when I breathe. I want to be HEALTHY! Also, I have a page on my blog that has ALL of my ultimate fitness goals. They are kind of strange, because I have a crazy dream of working in law enforcement on Environmental Justice Issues! http://maniacalmatron.blogspot.com/p/overall-health-goals.html

My next “big” project I’m planning to tackle in a few weeks, is back to Couch 2 5K. My knee has been holding up when I’ve been doing lunges with no pain, so running shoes, here I come! (Keep me accountable – please!)

4. What do you love most about being a Sista in Mamavation ?

The Support. We are all there for one thing: to get healthy! To make the best of our lives. No matter the fitness level, weight, nothing. The only prequesite: Willingness to change our habits, willingness to be supportive, and no “perfect” people either. We’re not perfect! That’s the best part!


5. Why do you think support in the Sistahood is so important?

Support is the lifeline of the sistahood. How motivated would we be if we only focused on ourselves and didn’t see what others were doing? We all have been there and go through the same struggles daily. We have someone around just a tweet away who WILL listen and understand. We have to keep reminding our selves and sistas that what we are doing is not only for ourselves, but our children. We’re all moms, and we understand the importance of setting an example for our children. Sometimes we need each other to remind us of this, but someone always will. We are changing habits – not “dieting.” I was once told “Change is hard and change takes time!” We are all making big, lasting changes. I know I couldn’t do it alone. That’s just it – I KNOW I’m not doing it alone. It brings me to tears to think of the awesome support I have gotten in my recent quit (and the past quits – thanks for not judging). Quitting has been a difficult journey, but I’ve made it this far because of the sistahood!

Thank you so much for all the love and support you give to the sistahood!

This post is sponsored my EA Sports. Sista of the Week will be recieving a MORE Workouts for the Wii. Thank you EA Sports Active!

  9. This is a different sort of opinion that many people don’t usually talk about. Usually when I find stuff like this I stumble it. Although this time I’m not sure if this would be best for the users. I will be sure to submit something else though.

  10. Wow, an awesome information man. Great Share. Unfortunately I am experiencing trouble with ur RSS . Don’t know why Unable to subscribe to it. Does anybody facing similar RSS feed problem? Anyone who can help kindly reply. Thankx

  11. Your RSS feed doesn’t work in my browser (google chrome) how can I fix it?

  12. I guess what I’m trying to say is, I don’t think you can measure life in terms of years. I think longevity doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with happiness. I mean happiness comes from facing challenges and going out on a limb and taking risks. If you’re not willing to take a risk for something you really care about, you might as well be dead.

  13. When you are doing a clothes and accessory shop, how do you choose your handbags? If you are anything like me, you have a certain range of styles and preference you like to look for.

  22. email me where you found the template for this site please. Or is this custom?

  23. A great blog post, I just passed this onto a workfellow who was doing a little research on this. And he in fact purchased me lunch because I found it for him. smile.

  24. You’re not the common blog writer, man. You definitely have something important to contribute to the web. Such a good blog. I’ll be back for more.

  25. My husband just told me about your site. He saved it on the computer so I could look at it and I must say you’ve got some awesome stuff here. Sorry I don’t have much more to contribute, but I just wanted to offer up some encouragement.

  26. It follows this provides several ties of friendship.

  27. Just now you can branch out from your daily understanding. Don’t give up your morals for anything. Generally this will lead to a mistaken and unproductive life.

  28. Good thorough ideas here.I’d like to suggest taking a look at a lot around the idea of french fries. What exactly are you looking for though?

  29. If SE was smart (and had a heart) they’d make this thing for every carrier. Take over Android, get buzz in the handheld arena again and take on Apple in a big way – don’t give this to AT&T and call it a day. I know SE hates CDMA but make it for Verizon and AT&T at the least, and Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile if you’re serious about this thing making an impact. It’s gorgeous and this is very exciting. The choice of touchpads instead of analog sticks is interesting. It could work, but odd since we know they are capable of thin nubs for sliders (Go).

  30. Interesting point of view. What are your thoughts on expansion on a global scale? There are times when things like this begin to have global expansion and frustration. I’ll check back to see what you have to say.

  31. good quality post thanks

  32. Have you considered adding some videos to the article? I think it might enhance everyone’s understanding.
