Hello ladies! A lot going on this week and then nothing at all going on too!
Basically a rest week for me because my leg has a knot in it that is making my knee hurt. I got a foam roller and I’ve been using it. It seems to be helping a lot, and I’m hoping to start running again, very gently, this week!
Somehow, even without exercising or keeping track of food, I lost some weight. It’s hard to tell how much because of my wonky scale, but I’ve lost my first 5 pounds!! Remember Leah’s video saying that losing the weight she had gained would be thought of as losing 5 pounds twice? It helped a lot!! Thank you again, Leah!
I’ve lost my first 5 pounds!!
I’m taking that “I lost 5 pounds with Mamavation” badge and sticking it in the margin! You bettah believe it! See? Look at it! I’m so proud to have earned it.
So excited to hear who will be the Mamavation moms and to see how everyone does in the Move It and Lose It challenge! A lot of healthy stuff going to happen!
The Twitter party to kick off the 6th campaign of Mamavation is tomorrow (Monday, October 18) from 7-9 PM. If you haven’t already, go hit the linky so you can win prizes!! I would love to win the Tracey Mallet Fitness DVDs, the Gruve, and the Subway cards! Oh and Mama needs a new pair of EA Sports Active shoes!

Post of the Week
The post of the week is Marie’s from Mommy’s Healthy Lifestyle. It’s toward the end of the link up so some of you might not have seen it. She documents with text and photos her family’s outdoor recreation day. This is a great way to get your family out and active without “exercising.” It is the perfect illustration of how moms (and dads) can get their kids out, breathing fresh air, moving and having fun. Check it out! Some nice photos too.
Best of luck to all of the Mamavation finalists!! I will be there to support you all, whether you “win” or not, but like Shelley (@Momma-oz) said, you all won by entering and making the commitment. I am proud of you all and have a lot of respect for you!!
