Mamavation Monday --Try, try, again.

Well...this week, I did a much better job watching the food I was putting in my mouth. And lo-and-behold. I didn't gain weight.
A miracle if you ask me!
I'm keeping my head in the game. I've figured out that constantly reviewing my weight loss materials--i.e. reading about fitness, healthy eating, and learning new techniques keeps my head fresh and focused.
Lately my biggest challenge lately has been tracking my food. I can't make up my mind about whether I want to track on or track with Weight Watchers points plus. I suppose deciding one way of the other would be greatly beneficial at this point.

I am also getting better at making sure I work out. Even if it means that I didn't get a "regular" workout in during that day, I'm hula hooping in front of the TV at night. Tonight, I'll be hoopin in front of the Bachelorette as I watch the guys make fools of themselves for Ashley's affections. My pick to win is J.P. btw! :)

And now for the Mamavation Monday Question of the Week brought to you by Together Counts!

How often do you and your family eat meals together and get active together?

As of right now, I have to admit. The answer to this question isn't a very good one. But, I'll be honest. Sure, we eat together about 4 out of 7 days a week, but it's not always healthy. And our family's numbers on getting active together are even worse. My husband and I put the baby in the stroller and go for a walk, hum let me think, ummmmm maybe once a month. These numbers make me uneasy, and are embarrasing!

So I took the Together Counts pledge. I've pledged 3 days of healthy family eating AND excercise per week. That's pretty do-able if you ask me! Cheers to a healthier, more active, AND more family oriented lifestyle!

  1. WTG for taking the pledge! I love the idea of hula hooping in front of the TV too!

    As for tracking your food... I can't speak for weight watchers points tracking because I'm not familiar with that, but I CAN say that I love mostly because it's on my phone so I can track anywhere... but as with anything on this journey we are on, it comes down to discipline so decide which you will use and stick with it. MAybe do one for a whole week and then switch to the other for a full week and decide then which one works better for you :) Just a thought! Keep up the AWESOME work!

  2. Great job with the watching what you eat and committing to the pledge. It sounds like you are being more mindful after a few bumps lately.

  3. Way to take the pledge. I pledged this morning too. I am super excited to rock it at my pledge.
