Mamavation Monday


It feels great to be getting back in the swing of things!! Well... Not really feels great as I am Sore! Boy am I out of shape and that's a shame.

But, I finished Week #1 of the #2WeekChallenge. I did really good too. I have Lost 3 pounds! The Work outs were challenging and made my body is SORE!! I have been eating better and I cut out the Soda. Cutting out the Soda was really hard for me because I lived on Diet Pepsi/Coke. I probably drank at least a 6 pack per day and sometimes I didn't eat or I ate whatever and whenever I wanted. ( Well, I noticed that it caught up to me and I gained back some weight- that's why I'm here.)

My Goal is for a Healthy Me!!! I want to eat healthy, lose weight and Tone up. I am on a good path. My husband started this with me and he should have lost weight but he didn't exercise much and cheated on his food. He cut back and started eating healthy but then he had a few blueberry turnovers, cheeseburger and fries, and whatever eles he didn't tell me he had. I on the otherhand, ate pretty healthy. I will tell you that I know if I give up certain foods that I will not make it and crave it. So, I have to tell you that the Weight Watchers Ice Cream Bars are really good!! They help me get my chocolate fix without alot of calories.

So... This week I'm off to a good start!!! I did my Monday Workout but those planks are a killer. ( My abs will be rewarded in the end though) But I am going to see that my effort pays off!

This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by The Chia CO.

The Chia Co produces Chia in harmony with nature, with environmental guidelines followed rigorously and farming practices applied with long-term sustainability in mind. The Chia Co products are all made from 100% natural Australian Grown Chia seed. Chia products are mild tasting and easy to include in the every day diet as they can be added to any meal. Chia is the richest plant based source of Omega 3, dietary fiber, protein and antioxidants. We refer to Chia as Nature’s Complete Superfood because it is very high in nutrition that is essential for a healthy diet including Omega 3, dietary fiber and protein as well as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It contains: 37% Dietary Fiber, 20% Omega 3 ALA, 20% Protein.

The Question is: What are your latest healthy food discoveries?

My Answer is: That I am trying to make healthy meals for my family. I am trying to eat more fruits and veggies and smaller portions. Also, I am not eating at 9:00 pm when I come home from work. I am making a better meal (Dinner) and eating before I leave for work at 3:00. I bring a piece of fruit or a healthy snack to eat around 7 pm to fill me up so I'm not hungry when I get home. ( I'm trying to train my body )

This post is sponsored by The Chia Co and I’m writing this to be entered into a giveaway hosted by Mamavation – a community dedicated to obesity prevention & weight loss for women.

Sounds like you know what works for you and are rocking it! We will get through week 2 and be stronger for it, even if our abs are crying. :)
