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.

This weeks Sista of the Week is………..

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!

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!
