I dropped the ball last week… #Mamavation Monday

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: March 18, 2013 | Categories: Health and Fitness, Mamavation, Weight Loss

What a week! Since starting my weight loss journey 19 weeks ago… this is the worst week I’ve had to date. I was so proud of myself for not gaining any weight. Every single week with the exception of two weeks, I lost something. Even if it was just .5 pounds. Hey, a loss is […]

I always loved dancing. I can’t remember a time I didn’t love dancing. For some time I got so busy with life and work that I didn’t dance so much. Since I’ve started my weight loss journey I’ve been more active. Mainly walking. More recently running. Have I told you I hate running? I do… […]

Image Source I was a bit bummed about the last two weigh-ins because I didn’t lose anything one week, and only .5 pounds the other. I was working out more, but just wasn’t seeing results. I also realize I have a difficult time doing a #Mamavation Monday post when I’ve had a bad or unproductive […]

Okay, I know it isn’t Monday, and I’m three days late. To be more precise I’m actually 10 days late, since I didn’t post at all last week. I’m a slacker. I know it seems that way, but I’ve been really busy. Life got in the way, and although I had an awesome week the […]

I am proud to say that I have logged in over 10,000 steps a day over the last 7 days. Included in those 10,000+ steps were 3 days of a non-stop one-mile run. Yep, I met my goal of running 1-mile non-stop by February 1st. Three cheers for me. Hip hip hooray… According to my […]

Mamavation Monday – Baby Steps are Paying Off #mamavation

Image Source I am so excited with my weight loss progress so far. I admit I’ve been taking little baby steps since October, but it’s working. And as they say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I consistently lost .5 to 2 pounds most every single week since October 15, 2012. I had one […]
