Mamavation Monday

Watch Lives Change
Today's weigh in was much better than last weeks! I lost 3 1/2 pounds but that's the extra weight that I gained the past few weeks/months. But, I guess it's a good start. I would still like to lose around 5 to 10 pounds but these pounds have been really hard for me to lose.
My main goal is to be healthy and not so much the weight loss as it is toning my body. I was a gymnast for many years and have that muscular build. I just need all my muscle to be "muscle" and toned (not flab underneath or in between). I just started doing a Zumba workout at home and although I haven't mastered it completely, I like it and can feel it working my body. They say you can lose 1000 calories an hour. That would be Great- because then I could eat even more. (LOL) I need to continue to eat healthy. I love to eat fresh fruits and veggies and I can add in a few ice cream or other treats as long as I exercise and keep it in moderation.
Another big concern, it to not east fast food as my summer schedule gets busier. I like to eat at Subway or bring fruit or other healthy snacks as to stopping and getting junk food along the way.
Until next week's weigh in ... I will be eating healthy and exercising!!

Great job on the weight loss! Make sure you keep fruit and veggies on hand and it will make it easier to choose those foods!

Amazing job Shawn! Glad you are happy with your progress this week. You are so close to your goal weight that I was wondering if it was more of a toning/body fat percentage goal. I can't wait to get to that point... you work your stuff!

Great job on the 3.5 lbs!!! That is wonderful! It's nothing to sniff at! Keep up the great work & I'm sure you'll hit the 5-10 lbs you're aiming to lose. & you're right, it's not about the #, so just remember that & keep doing what you're doing! I keep hearing a lot about zumba & I'm curious....

Your goals sound a lot like mine. I am mostly aiming for muscle tone and no flab.

Have a great week

I'm giggling at your "flab underneath or in between!" Gives me a funny mental picture and I love it! That flab is trying to hide!

Good job getting back on track. You're doing great!

I'm like you Shawn - short and muscular, but with a small layer of fat overtop making me look larger than I am. Keep up the good work Shawn! You and I will both get there!
