So, this week has been a little bananas. I've been busy with getting things straightened out for school, tests, and TRYING not to stress over this Mamavation campaign on top of the usual stuff.
I took a little time to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend and it was FABULOUS!
Here's this week's scale pic:
I've lost 2 lbs since last week! w00t!
This is also my official starting weight for the Move It & Lose It Challenge (if I'm not selected as a Mamavation Mom)
I also must take the time out to apologize to my mother since she was mortified that her daughter posted pictures last week without taking that toe nail polish off. Sorry again, Mom.
Here are my before pics:
Any my measurements:
Rt Arm: 19.5"
Lt Arm: 19.25"
Rt Thigh: 30"
Lt Thigh: 31"
Honestly, seeing the rather horrifying pictures of me (and posting them for the world to see) reminds me of WHY I started Mamavation in the first place. I saw pictures of me at my sister's wedding and was so upset not only out how BIG I was, but by the fact that these are my sister's wedding pictures that will be around forever.
I felt like a giant sore thumb that just stuck out and ruined all of her wedding pictures. It might seem trivial to some, but it was devastating to me.
I'm going to try to not let this get me down, and just use it as a motivating factor for what I'm here to do: GET HEALTHY!
I did my EA Sports Active workout on Saturday and it was a LOT harder than I was anticipating. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it kicked my butt! I also did 150 jumping jacks every day which definitely got my heart racing and did 150 mountain climbers 3 days this week. On top of that, I bit the bullet and started Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred again. That woman is going to kill me!
Good luck to all the other finalists! Can't wait to see who's chosen to be the next Mamavation Mom! Don't forget to join us at the Twitter party Monday night from 8pm-10pm EST. You can RSVP here
