Hello everyone! Hanan here, for week 2 of being a Mamavation Mom. You can check out my week 1 post here.
So much happened this past week.
After traveling, coming home, and finally getting back into the swing of things, I’m feeling much better now.
I can hardly believe it myself, but I lost even more pounds this past week. Putting me at a 11.6 lb weight loss since I applied to be a Mamavation Mom. That jump, right at the beginning was really a perfect way to start this campaign.
Over the past week, I have been working my butt off with the daily circuits. Which I’m not going to lie, is tough.
Alysa, from Inspired Results, sent me my nutrition plan which fits perfect with the foods I like, keeping my calories up for nursing, and over all just being really easy to use this week. Don’t worry, I will tell you more about those meal plans in the following weeks, as I get better with them and get my exchange book.
A few times this past week I have forgotten to eat my afternoon snack. Being a mom to three, I do often forget to stop and eat. Also, I have it embedded in my head to drink more water. I know I need extra water, with the exercising and nursing. Of course, I am struggling to remember that too.
If you haven’t joined the Mamavation Forums yet, you should. Everyone is so helpful. If you have a question, there is always someone to help or suggest. It’s been really helpful to log my food and exercise, get that support and advice from others.
A BIG HUG to my Mamavation Mentors Lolo, Andrea, and Lauren who all have been just plain awesome at helping us. They email, text, tweet me everyday and I couldn’t have asked for better mentors. Also, I would really like to thank Megan and Shannon for all our talks and your help this week. The whole sistahood is just awesome!
I have noticed that my oldest is asking questions like “Are we going to the gym today?” and the girls just love to exercise with me. It’s just a great feeling knowing I’m having an impact on them already.
Here’s a little more of what I have to say…
