We’ve been here before. Selected as a Mamavation Mom… Ready to turn life upside down in an effort to find ourselves in the process… Excited to make life-long changes that help us to become better… a better mom, a better friend, a better role model, healthier, happier… and Terrified all at the same time because WE KNOW what’s coming.
It always starts easy enough… A few changes here and there that you don’t mind making because it’s all new and exciting. Hope is around every corner. The late night workouts we look forward to in anticipation instead of dreading because, again, it’s exciting.
Somewhere around week three, the “newness” wears off and what we once craved, we begin to dread. The healthy snacks and meals that have been exciting to share with our families, we now force ourselves to make… when all we really want is a big ol’ greasy cheeseburger or a plate of brownies.
We know that when it happens, we will need all of your support like never before. We will reach out through Facebook and Twitter and all of the other social media outlets for you to cheer us on. And… we know you will be there. Without fail. Without Question. We are a family – a sistahood. And that is a beautiful thing.
We also know that by identifying the “week 3 monster” and the stumbling blocks in our respective paths, it’s easier to overcome them.
We’re excited because we know what’s ahead and this time, with your help, We can do this.
We’re excited because THIS time, we have a true partner in crime. Together we make up “Team Pony Girls” (named for our mutual adoration for My Little Pony™).
Along this journey, over the next 7 weeks, we will hopefully spread the love and keep each other uplifted with rainbows and unicorns because really, life is too short for anything less.
So what’s the plan? Well, for starters, We will kick our own asses with the Billy Blanks Tae Bo Program – and hopefully by week 7 we’ll be able to keep up with Billy.
We’ll serve up our special brand of snark as we smack talk with the other teams and cheer each other on, but mostly, we’ll focus on making better choices all around. Not perfect mind you, better. Because if perfection is what you are looking for, you are in the WRONG spot.
The best part about this Graduate Campaign is that each team offers a little something different. That’s awesome because hopefully, between the five teams, you can find something relateable, interesting or inspiring.
So, where to start? The beginning is as good a place as any… you know, in case you don’t know who we are… (like THAT’S possible)
