This Monday is our last week with the Mamavation Moms: Jenny @Jennydecki and Lisa @ljenator. Time flies and this feels like the quickest campaign we’ve ever done. Because Lisa Johnson (@ljenator) came in as a pinch runner and only was able to get three weeks of the campaign in, I’m allowing her to apply again if she chooses to do so. And keeping with the spirit of Mamavation, both woman are going to be posting Mamavation Monday posts with everyone else for at least six months so we can continue to cheer them on. And they will also be required to run a 5K by or before the end of February. They will have their Smooth Fitness treadmill to help them with their training. So stay tuned…
Here are the dates for the next campaign:
Applications: September 27th to October 6th
Voting: October 11 to 18th
Mamavation Launch Party: October 18th
Campaign #6: October 18th to November 29th
If you are interested in applying to be a Mamavation Mom, you will have to create a video telling me why you want to be considered for the campaign and what you are going to do to motivate other women online to live healthy. If I were you, I’d get the video in very early just to be considerate. (I know I’m a pain, but whatev.) You will also have to join the Sistahood as a requirement and get to know the other girls, because this will be where all the magic happens.
I will also be announcing the winners of the Move It & Lose It Campaign sponsored by Earth Footwear. The person who loses the highest percentage of body weight from the time she applied and who is in good standing with the Sistahood will win $500 and a pair of Earth Footwear. And second place winner will also get a pair of Earth Footwear, but no money. The winners will be announced during Mamavation TV towards the end of the show.
So don’t miss Mamavation TV this Monday because we will also have a special guest, Liz Neporent.
