Mamavation Monday!

This last week was full of calorie counting, portion policing, and a six year old coach who likes to crack the whip. My son even tried to sneak in an extra set of lunges! He's hard on me but it's really good for me and for my kids to see me doing this and to get them involved. My four year old even got down and did some of the exercises with me. They both showed me how to do burpees since they do them in their martial arts class. They laughed when I did my first one and kept on showing me how. When the were finally pleased with my form they let me start counting!

I am a bit discouraged this week because I haven't lost any weight but my husband says he thinks I look thinner. I certainly hope so!!

It is hard for me to remember to drink since I cannot drink water but I have bought some liquid mix ins that add flavor and something unknown that helps me curb the allergic reaction. I have added more fruit and veggies to my diet and my oldest is really picking up on eating healthy. Today he asked for more veggies in his sandwich. I love that they are interested in my success and in their own healthy habits!!

  1. thats awesome that you got your kids involved good for you. have a great week and keep up the good work

  2. It will all come together. Be patient. Dude you should totally do a vlog on burpees! :) Starring your boys!

  3. Hi Darlin, I know it is hard to not be discouraged when your working hard and don't scale move. Please trust me when I say good things are happening. My scale can be stubborn as well, but I see results in looser clothes or just plain feeling good.

    Good Luck hun...and Welcome back :)

  4. Oh my goodness! I no clue you had such an allergy, that's terrible. My husband is allergic to corn and pollen of fruits and veggies so the food he eats makes him miserable. My heart good out to you!

    I might cry if my kids got all drill Sargent on my about burpees, lol. Way to go! I think as long as your hubby is noticing you're doing it right. I have to measure because often times my scale doesn't budge. Hang in there :)
