I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am for the opportunity I have been given through Mamavation.
It took a solid day and a half for me to overcome the shock that I felt Monday night when I read my name on that Twitter stream.
The workouts have been great so far and some of the exercises bring back memories of Fitcation, darn tricep push-ups. The great thing so far is the awesome support I’m getting from the Mamavation Team, Mentors, Community, and my fellow Mamavation Mom, Rachel (@rachhabs).
I made a little video about it too.. Like to see it? Here is goes:
And of course, no initial Mamavation post would be complete without the dreaded before and after pics. I would only take pictures of myself half naked for Leah.
- Chest – 38.5″
- Waist – 40.5″
- Hips – 43.5″
- Left arm – 12″
- Right arm – 12″
- Left thigh – 23.5″
- Right thigh – 23″
My goal for this Mamavation Campaign is to lose 25lbs. I’d love to be down to 150lbs by then, but ultimately I will be 150lbs in 10 weeks no matter what! My big motivation for this campaign is a family trip to Hawaii in November.
As many moms, or women, can relate, when you are overweight you do not want to walk out on the beach in a swimsuit. Well, I’m basically done with that. I want to walk out on the beach behind our cottage feeling great about myself. And I know that with the help of Mamavation I will get there.
That’s why I definitely have to thank Earth Footwear (@EarthFootwear), Omron Fitness (@OmronFitness), and New Balance (@NewBalance) for sponsoring this campaign. These companies are helping bring my goals to fruition.
