In Need of Mamavation!

I took a leap of faith today and sent my application in to the Mamavation contest. What is Mamavation? I'm so glad you asked! :)

Mamavation™ is a social experiment and weight loss campaign in social media with the goals of teaching moms healthy living lifestyle choices so they can share with their family. Mamavation™ is a two part campaign: (1) a virtual healthy living boot camp for two moms and (2) the home of the first virtual healthy living sorority in social media, the Sistahood™.

As a healthy living bootcamp, Mamavation™ is an opportunity for two moms (Mamavation™ Moms) to change their lives together by entering into a 7 week healthy living boot camp created to give them the tools they need to succeed. The will receive a professional nutritional plan created by a physician that specializes in nutrition, Dr. Renna, and a fitness program created by Tracey Mallett. They will also receive a treadmill from Smooth Fitness, Earth Footwear, an EA SPORTS Active, Tracey Mallett and Tae Bo DVDs. The program was created and is managed by @bookieboo, with the goal of teaching moms how to live life better. The Mamavation™ campaign plans to give them the tools they need to succeed, in hopes that they will create a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families.

As the Mamavation™ Moms complete their 7 week crash course in healthy living, they will be supported by an army of moms. The Mamavation™ Cheerleader squad and Mamavation™ Sistahood™ will be behind them every step of the way. They will receive a Mamavation™ Mentor, which is a mom that completed the program and has stuck around to mentor another. And they will also be required to have a "fit friend," or someone who they know that already lives a healthy lifestyle.

The campaign will unfold on Bookieboo where the Mamavation™ moms will keep a daily food/exercise journal. They will appear on Mingle Media TV Network every Monday at 7pm PST/10pm EST as well. The Mamavation™ Moms will also be expected to post about their Mamavation experience and be available on twitter to talk about their experiences and inspire everyone. In addition, they will do a vlog every week chronicling their journey losing weight. The purpose behind all this "work" is to INSPIRE others. The Mamavation™ Moms are challenged with losing weight and learning healthy living and inspiring other moms to do the same--a hefty challenge but admirable one.

It sounds like a great opportunity, right? I'm really excited to be involved! You can read more about the contest OR apply yourself by clicking the button below!
