Mamavation Monday – New Year, New You?

Mamavation Monday

For most of us, this week marks a transition back to the regular routine.   The holiday season has come to a crashing halt like a three year old after a sugar crash. Did you make any resolutions?  How are they working out for you? Need a kick in the pants yet?  (hehehehe) In honor of the first Monday of 2013, we are kicking the year off with … [Read more...]

Mamavation Monday – Reaching your goals – but setting them first.

It's hard to believe that another year is almost at an end. We've stuck together as we've witnessed so many Mamavation Moms  transform their lives with the Mamavation Mom bootcamp. We discovered a new and better Chocolate without all the junk!     We celebrated together at Fitcation in Los Angeles and are already … [Read more...]

Mamavation Monday – Backyard Gardening

Mamavation Mondays

About 20-25 years ago, my mom got a bug in her bonnet and decided that she wanted to become like Jeramiah Johnson - a Robert Redford movie from the early 70s about a man who just wanted to live the life of a hermit - completely self sufficient and not relying on anyone else for anything.  In my family's case, that translated to turning our acre … [Read more...]

Mamavation Monday – Raising Resilient Kids

Teach Resilience front cover 256

As parents, we are faced with a million and four decisions every day when it comes to raising our kids.  We get tons of input and advice - whether we ask for it or not - from our parents, inlaws, friends, family, or even perfect strangers.  I know many of us question if we are doing what is right for our kids to mold them into strong, resilient … [Read more...]

The A Team wraps up: what we lost and what we gained.

The A-Team logo

It's been an interesting seven weeks for the both of us for sure. The goal of this campaign is to lose weight and get healthier, but we've also gained a lot too. A week or so into the campaign, Andrea and I realized that we weren't going to come up with showstopping weight losses each week. And we were okay with that. I will talk about my own … [Read more...]

All Good Things Must Come To An End

Mamavation Mom 
Before & After

This moment and post is bittersweet, this will be my last post as a Mamavation after two back to back campaigns. The past 20 or so weeks have flown by and I can't believe the person I am today, compared to who I was almost 6 months ago. I like what Shelley {@momma_oz} said about shedding these pounds rather then loosing them, because I am not … [Read more...]

Mamavation Monday: Keeping Snacks Healthy and Fun

Mamavation Mondays

It is officially December folks with only a handful of shopping days until Christmas and only a handful more until the new year. I have no clue where this year went and I'm sure many of you feel the same. Along with the holidays, many of us will have our school age kiddos home for winter break.

Embracing the name ‘Mom’

The A-Team logo

As Mamavation Moms we might all hail from different areas of the country, but we all have one big thing in common, we are all Moms. Some parts of that job description require more or less from us, but we have all been through the fatigue of pregnancy and bleary-eyed nursing stages. I hope in the past 6 weeks you have enjoyed the ride along with us … [Read more...]

No Need to Hibernate

Workouts 4 wine week 2

  It's week 6 and we can't believe it is almost the end of the Mamavation Mom Graduate campaign!  Last time Meagan and I were in a campaign together it was warm (extremely hot) outside.  This allowed for plenty of outdoor activities for us and our families.  Winter on the other hand means we are indoors more often.  Yes, even we are tempted … [Read more...]
