Embracing a Healthy Family: Mamavation Monday

Mamavation Monday

It's been awhile since I posted and I know I shouldn't go that long because I really enjoy the encouragement from all the wonderful women of Mamavation.  I've had my oldest daughter visiting and she's been my strength and sometimes my pitfall on continuing to get healthy.  Sometimes I forget it's about getting healthier versus being deprived of those processed filled foods even though they sure do taste great.  I'm still down my 32 pounds I lost since last June and still have plenty of toning to do.  I was running three miles a day but after I had a terrible cold that lasted three weeks, I find it's hard to get back there.  I'm trying to run two and walk one along with biking and counting calories.


I'm also trying to get more active by taking the girls out.  We are venturing out on vacation trips to utilize the time we have together.  This picture was taken among the most beautiful white sand dunes I have ever seen.  I think the girls had more exercising than I but I did try to run around a bit to use up some calories.


All in all, I'm still continuing my journey and although I've had some hiccups, I jump back up and try, try again!

It seems you and I are in the same boat!

I am struggling to make working out a priority right now even though for a year I was working out religiously 4 times a week.

I have big plans for the summer to stay active with the kids, like parking the car and riding our bikes to get around town.

Every little bit helps right??

Agree! It all helps and can't hurt. I'm even parking further out to walk more and when they ask to take out my groceries, I always say no. I want to maximize all I can!

Welcome back to the Sistahood!!

Isn't it funny how when we're around our family eating right is so much harder? I hope you're feeling better soon!

Thanks Mamavation Moms! I think for me, it's a comfort to eat around family. They all do it so I have to too!
