Well this week has been interesting. It has been somewhat stressful like last week BUT unlike last week I've managed to eat less and keep up with my water drinking. I was visiting family some this week and I ended up playing their Wii quite a bit. What a workout some of those games will give you! My cousin and I did Just Dance and it sure got me sweating. I also tried out Wii Fit and really enjoyed the runs and different exercises it had on it. On an somewhat unrelated note, my four year old son's favorite was bowling and he totally rocked at it. Anyway, last week I weighed 229.8 and this week my weight is 228.0, which is a loss of 1.8 pounds. Woooo! I'm always excited to see a loss, no matter how big or small.
Awhile back, Leah did a post about setting a goal day of December 5. She said, and I quote: "No matter where you are in your fitness life, there is always something you can work to reach." I am making my goal for December to lose 20 pounds. It's not a huge goal but I think it's something attainable and that I can definitely manage.
I forgot to mention last week that I'm now an official part of the Mamavation Sistahood! You can see the badge in my sidebar. I'm very thankful to have met so many wonderful and encouraging "sistas" through this! They've really helped me be accountable. If you're interested in pledging to the Mamavation Sistahood, check out this page. You can also watch and join in on Mamavation TV tonight at 7pm PST/10pm EST on Mingle Media TV. I'll be there, assuming my kids don't have a crazy night! :)
I also wanted to give a shout-out to Lori (@gutimom) for being the Sista of the Week this week and to Shannon (@Trulove821) for being last week's Sista! Congrats gals!
Lastly, I wanted to mention that this week's Mamavation blogging carnival is sponsored by Chiquita Banana. My household is definitely a big fan - bananas are one thing I know that I can probably get the kids to eat without any fuss!
