Frustration, Strength and Hope


My previous post: To the parents of the “normal” toddler at the pumpkin patch represented a radical departure from my typical fitness-related writing. In all honesty it was fairly difficult for me to press the "publish" button on that article. You see, I tend to keep my feelings and even my opinions close to my chest. I guess you could say I am a … [Read more...]

Where the Sidewalk Ends, and the Road begins…


 I can hardly believe it myself, but it is now week 7 of the Mamavation Boot Camp! In a few more days I will do my final weigh in, and any future weight loss will be up to me! Of course, that's not really much of a change, as it was up to me the whole time. But I didn't have the right tools before, so I struggled. I needed guidance! Being given … [Read more...]

Are You Going to Eat ALL of THAT?!?!


First things first: let's talk about the scale. I have several speculations about the number from last week, but I cannot scientifically prove them. The only thing that matters today is that the numbers on the scale moved in the desired direction! The inches are slowly, but surely falling off as well: Week 1 Week 2 Week … [Read more...]

Who is in Control of My Body?

The A-Team logo

No, really... could someone tell me? Because I feel like I completely lost control. This is Andrea and boy was it a rough week. No, not a normal rough week. This past week was full of sick kids, sniffles, stress over the coming holiday and the worst that pregnancy had to throw at me.  Add in a few sleepless nights and it was a mixture for … [Read more...]

If There’s Smoke, Is There Fire?


Sometimes, the journey you plan on taking ends up getting detoured to a new place. That's kinda what's been happening with me.  This  Mamavation mom Grad campaign has been differnt than what I thought it would be, but I'm choosing to look at it  as that I am still taking  steps forward, even if they are baby steps.  Moving forward is moving … [Read more...]

Tap, tap, tap – Is this thing on??


So I gotta tell ya. I'm feeling a bit out of the loop! It's me Tina, this week. I'm still enjoying paradise during vacation and because of this I really feel like I'm missing all of you. I've been trying to tweet various pictures and such, but seriously, keeping up with the kids and making sure we don't lose them is really taxing! As I … [Read more...]

Keep on keepin’ on!

The A-Team logo

We made it another week! Angela here. I probably should have written this post before making the video, because I talked for six straight minutes about randomness. In my defense it's been a very random week for me, and I think I needed to vent a little. Check out my ramblings and then I'll finish up with some stats. So in summation: … [Read more...]
