Time to get back on track!


No one is perfect... that's why pencils have erasers.  ~Author Unknown

This week was a little tough for me.. I got off track... though not by choice. I've been sick for the past week with a chest congestion and totally felt like crap. Kids were also sick so between getting better and wiping off buggers and taking care of them didn't feel like myself. Hence.. no working out. I gained 2 lbs.. oh no.. i know not the end of the world but i feel defeated. I was doing so good.. then this my first road block. It's ok though because I know i'm not perfect and i'm going to hit lots of road blocks ahead. I just need to over come them and move foward.  So today is the start of another Mamavation 2 week challenge and I am super stoked about it. I am putting my best foot foward and it going full steam ahead. I need to get back on track and this 2 week challenge is my ticket to it.

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 Wheat Toast no butter, and A glass of Water
I've started the day off with a good start today. Egg's and Toast and my water. Love water. So that is my goal this week is to get back on track. I can do this and will!

Weightloss this week - 0
Weight gained this week - +2
Total weightloss - 18 pounds.

 When it comes to holiday shopping, how do you make sure you stick to your budget ?

Holiday Shopping is a nightmare! But to stick to my budget I do check ad's for sales and make sure i have my coupon in handy. Though my BFF is better at is. Shannon is the coupon queen. I do use it more now than before.  Just remember to have your coupons in handy and ready when you check out. Make sure you have flyers handy incase you find something and you know it's cheaper at another store. Most places do price match as long as you have proof. Oh and don't forget to write a list out. Keeps you from spending too much.

  1. I hope you start feeling better and getting back to your workouts this week! Being sick with sick kids too is even worse. Good luck this week, we will rock it!!@luckystars54

  2. For some reason I always gain weight when I have a cold. Is it feed a cold or starve a cold? Whatever it is...I sit on my butt and eat.

    Good luck with the 2 week challenge!

  3. Ugh, it is totally that season for colds. I hope you are feeling better and the bug stays gone. Congratulations on your overall loss! Remember the big picture is what counts. Sounds like you are off to an awesome start - I hope your week stays awesome!

  4. focus on what you have lost and don't let one sidetrack get to you
