Mamavation Monday

Watch Lives Change

It was a good week for me, food wise that it is. Still not in a working-out groove, can't find the umph I need to do it. So, today I am going to go to join a gym Planet Fitness. I figure I used to spend about $40 a month going to my Weight Watchers meeting ( and all you do there is sit in an uncomfortable chair in a church basement for 45mins.) I have been to enough meetings to know what I am supposed to do (and not do) with my diet. The gym membership is only $10 a month and I figure with my foot injury , if the treadmill hurts too much I at least can move to a bike or something.
I weighed myself Sunday morning and I am down 1lb. So that it a total of 5.8lbs total. I was hoping it was going to be more, but I can't complain cuz that is with no working-out at all.
If I can't come up with the money soon, then I am definitely getting the Earth Footwear sneakers for my Birthday (unless I can win some around Twitter *wink wink*) I figure if I get pair of them , even my trips to Walmart and the grocery store will count as "working-out".

I want to thank everyone for the sweet , supportive comments and tweets after my post last week. I just love all the Sistas so very much, glad I got involved with Mamavation.

Don't forget to tune into MomTv tonight for the Mamavation show , there will be more giveaways and Peter Cohen is going to be there too. YAY

Thanks
xoxo

You are where I am. I've lost 11 pounds without working out. When I only lost 1 lbs last week it was my kick in the tush to work out. You can do it!

I hope you love the gym. That has been such a help to me. I love getting out of the house and working out there. I hope that you have a great week and 1 lb is still a weight loss! Good for you!

If nothing else, the gym will give you a different place for working out. Sometimes it makes all the difference to get out--especially if it's the only time you get to yourself. enjoy it!

One pound with no workouts is a success!!!

This week will be good. I can feel it! I have an ankle injury, and I have found that the staionary bike and the elliptical machine is helpful.
Much love! Fbbmomma

I need to get serious about working out too. Let me know if you're looking for a workout partner. We can hold each other accountable. Cheers to a great week!

Jennifer said...

Girl, keep us posted on your gym. Once you start it will get a bit easier...I hope your ankle doesn't stop you from working out. Congrats on your lb. lost too! Every bit counts. I didn't move today either, DH was home from work and I just wanted to hang with him, so I will have to make it up tues 2x. Small steps, you're doing great. Hehehe, don't forget your V-8 :P

You are going to be scary once you learn to enjoy and execute the workout component of all this. Down 5 pounds total with no working out is kind of hilarious, you are amazing. Have a great week and don't let Stacy and Clinton on TLC get you down again.

Congrats on the weight loss ~ can't believe you did that without working out. I need your metabolism! Have a good week and let us know how you enjoy the gym.

Good job on the weight loss!! Especially without exercise. You're making good changes.

You're doing great - keep it up!

An injury sucks, but there is still lots you can do! $10 a month for a gym is a great price, just make sure you get your moneys worth! The more you go, the lower your price per visit - that would be the way I would think about it!!

Woot woot for weight loss! Congrats my darling...don't sell yourself short. There were many weeks where I would have DIED to lose a pound. XXOO

Down to 1 lb this week, Yay you! I know how it feels to have an injury, ugh. It really slows you down. Good thing about gyms is that you can have somebody over there supervise you to make sure you're working out right and avoid further injuries. Keep up the good work, girl! --- @Imahotmom

Kim said...

Yay for the 1 lb!!! Great job! I'm w/you though, i need to get my tushy working out! You can do it! *hugs*

Brittney said...

I wish you and I could swap motivation! I can't get my eating under control but I love the exercise right now. You're doing good though! Keep it up!
