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...]

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...]

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...]

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...]

Mamavation Week 7: It’s not over.

It's the final week of Mamavation. Where has the time gone? It's been quite the roller-coaster ride up to this point, but I wouldn't want to have it any other way. After this week the Mamavation Moms will be left to their own devices to continue on their journey to healthier living. But it's not over! Sure, there won't be any required weekly … [Read more...]

Mamavation Week 6: Pushing Harder

Sweaty post work out picture!

This week I was originally planning to vlog from my awesome treadmill. Then I changed around my rest day and realized I shouldn't get on there when I'm supposed to be resting. So this week I wanted to talk about something different. If you were at Mamavation TV this past Monday you heard me talking about pushing harder. I've been talking about … [Read more...]

Week 5, I’m ready for you!

I can't believe we're already on week 5! It's flying by! A couple of weeks ago I would be excited that it was almost over, but right now I kind of don't want it to end yet. I'm still not at the point where I love exercising, but that's okay. I am pushing myself when I need to. I'm making time to exercise, I'm putting a lot of effort into it and I'm … [Read more...]

Over It: Weekly Check-in with @ninemoremonths

Look at this beauty! The Sole F63.

No, the title of this post is not meant to imply that I am over Mamavation. I am over being sick. Most of me is feeling much better, but this pesky cough is holding me back a little. Anytime I get a little too intense with my workout, I start a coughing fit. Sometimes it's so bad I almost throw up from it! This is more annoying than anything. I … [Read more...]
