Guess who’s back? Back again?


(Yes, I know, now that song is resonating in your head! Bahaha!) It's me! I am back for another campaign. Are you surprised? I was! When Leah asked me if I wanted to go through bootcamp again, I think my heart skipped a beat or two. I learned a lot from my Campaign (# 7) and took it all to heart, but having that knowledge, and keeping it up on a … [Read more...]

Mamavation Final Post: @ninemoremonths

Fun with the family.

I can't believe it. I did it. I survived two Mamavation campaigns. In a row! I was nervous, and unsure of how I would handle it. I maybe thought it would have gotten a little easier, but honestly it didn't. I will probably struggle for the rest of my life with making time for myself. It won't be second nature, but it is starting to become a habit, … [Read more...]

What a Week!


Well I just cannot believe that we are entering the last week of Mamavation. The time has just flown by. I am kind of sad that it is coming to an end. I will miss the intense accountability. I will miss being held to certain standards. Sharing the tough things and the things that I am proud of every week on camera. It is energizing. And … [Read more...]

Week 5 and healthy snacks with @ninemoremonths

Sweaty and tired but oh so happy.

I can't believe it is week 5 already! It's been going by crazy fast, and I'm a little sad that there's only two more weeks left. On the bright side, in a little over 3 weeks I get to meet and hang out with some of my Mamavation friends! I am really looking forward to getting away from the house, letting loose, working out, and having fun. Other … [Read more...]

Planning is Key. Week 4 with @ninemoremonths

Ready for a home run!

I've never been a planner. In fact, I'm a very last-minute kind of person. Schedules? No thanks. Calendars? Mine are blank. Meal planning? A foreign concept to me up until a few months ago. Things that I would have never done on my own are things that I now welcome, thanks to Mamavation. Having a workout schedule is incredibly helpful for someone … [Read more...]

Week 3 with @ninemoremonths


This week has been a struggle in taking care of myself. I am so incredibly thankful to be a part of Mamavation again. Because if it wasn't for the campaign I would be right back on the back burner again. That back burner is how I got to be overweight, even obese, in the first place. As moms we instinctively put our families first. When my to-do … [Read more...]

Campaign 8 – Are We There Yet?

OR Sunshine Won't Stop Our Walks

My son is just starting to ask the worst questions... the incessant "Why?" followed by, "Now Mommy?" and "Are we there yet?" I almost feel that way about my weight loss journey. I know how far I have come, but still wonder how long it is going to take. "Am I there yet?" has been a burning question on my mind when it comes to getting the hang of … [Read more...]

Where DOES the time go?! Week 2 with @ninemoremonths

Gotta do the 5K in style...

This week I'm really dealing with the time management aspect of the campaign and of my life. I have never been a very organized. Shocking, I know. When I first became a Mamavation Mom I took a leave of absence from my job. Granted, I have a really part time job as it is, but I wanted to remove as many distractions as possible. Unfortunately, all … [Read more...]

Campaign 8 – Yeah, the Dishes Can Wait


It is week 2 and things are falling into place. Well, maybe not my housework, but the Mamavation part, well... it is going. Now that we have most of the tools to work with it is easier. I think the biggest part of the week was my meeting with Alysa. She did an amazing job tailoring the meal plan to me. I knew she said she was, but seeing it down … [Read more...]

Hello again! Campaign 8 re-introduction to Angela, @ninemoremonths.

I can never get a "normal" picture in this family.

It's me again! If you followed campaign 7 you probably remember me, and you probably also know that Leah (@bookieboo) decided to keep me on for a second campaign. If you weren't around, I'm Angela, I am a 25-year-old mom of two boys ages 5 and 2. I live in sunny Southern California now, but I was born and raised in Florida. I am halfway … [Read more...]
