I can’t believe that we are nearly halfway done with Campaign 12! I’m learning so much and really noticing differences in my life… and my body! In fact, I have lost 13.2 pounds, and 8 inches since I applied to be a Mamavation Mom!
Not every steps as a Mamavation Mom is small, in fact, it’s pretty intense, but they are changes that everyone can make: east healthy, exercise more, lean on friends for support, and find the tools that help you succeed: and that I’ve done!
One of the things I’m LOVING my new Omron Fitness Pedometer and Scale! First of all my pedometer is my new best friend (or worst enemy if my steps are not high enough at night!) . I check it around 7 and end up hoofing it around the block to get it all in.! They also sent us this awesome scale- the Full Body Sensor that not only measures your weight, but it also measures your body fat percent, your visceral fat level, skeletal muscle percent, body weight, and BMI. Visceral fat is the hidden fat that hides in your abdomen and surrounds your vital organs- and this type of fat often goes undetected. The more skeletal muscle you have the more calories you will burn, as muscle burns 22% of calories. I love having this tool at my toes to help me lose weight!
Next week Ally and I are participating in Color Me Rad, a fun 5K that incorporated running and fun! We’ll be in Hartford for our first race together, and we are both super excited! i can’t wait to show those photos!
None of these changes that I’ve been making would have been possible without help- and I’d love to say a great big THANK YOU to our sponsors,: New Balance, Omron Fitness, InsiredRD, Weight Loss Guru, Earth Shoes and of course, my Mamavation community Plus my awesome Mentors Lolo, Laura, and Andrea, not to mention my partner in crime,and Mamavation Mom cohort, Hanan who puts up with my panicked tweets.
