Mamavation Monday 11/8

I lost 2.0 lbs this week! w00t!

The funk I was in last week seems to have dissipated this week. I'm adjusting to the winter weather and I've (mostly) gotten over my illness.

I'm still struggling with my schedule issue. Since I'm currently not working outside the home, I tend to slip into a feeling of laziness that is detrimental to my whole day. Lame!

My focus this week will be eating as clean as I can for as cheap as I can. It's a fine balance between saving money and eating a diet full of whole, clean foods. On one end, you don't want to drop a ridiculous amount of money on fresh produce (in November) and high quality meat, but on the other you don't want to reduce yourself to eating everything out of a can. I'll let you know how this goes!

Lastly, and completely unrelated to anything that has to do with Mamavation, I got a hair cut yesterday! Before, my hair stopped right at my elbows and now it's just above my shoulders. I donated what was cut off to Locks of Love, thus the haircut was free! w00t! Frugality at it's best!

Here's a before and after for your viewing pleasure (you're welcome)

PS - I just noticed the difference in weight in my face! Am I just seeing things?

Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. The cut is gorgeous and you are not seeing things. Congrats on the loss! November is a great time to eat more squashes and ground vegetables. Apples are still in season too.

  2. Love the new look! So sweet of you to donate. I need to eat better, but right now we are eating our food storage items before they expire, lol. Makes it a bit more difficult to eat clean, but I will see if I can join you in Dec.
    PS...Bummed no Swamp shows were on this weekend.
