"Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness."
– Edward Stanley
Weight loss this week: 3.2 lbs
Weight loss total - 32.2 lbs!!!
This past week i have been sick. With that being said i did manage to keep doing the 2 week challenge. Though i struggled with breathing while doing it i did manage to finish it. Yeah!! :) I've lost 3.2 lbs since being sick. Guess that 's one of the perks of being sick. I've hit my 30 lbs. weight loss goal. yah me!!! Other than that not much to report. Still getting over being sick and hoping this week is a better one. I hope everyone has a great week. 
 This week's mamavation post is:
What is one health lesson you want to teach your kids?

I want to teach my kids that exercising does not have to be a chore or a necessity in life. You do it anyone through out the day. You skip, you dance, you run around. As long as you're active that's all that matters. I want them to be able to eat what they want but with good judgement. I don't want them to be eating McDonald's everyday junk food for the matter but I want them to know it's OK to have an ice cream sundae once in a great while. Moderation and Excercising is the key.

  1. Wow!!! 32lbs is awesome! You are amazing in my eyes and I have enjoyed your journey. You are an amazing example.

  2. Good job hitting that 30 pound goal and sticking with it through sickness! I hope you're feeling better!

  3. Love your lessons. This is so true. Great job on your loss. Are you applying to be a Mamavation mom this time?

  4. Congrats on the weight loss and breaking the 30 lb. goal!! I hope you feel better soon :)

  5. I am constantly amazed and impressed by your journey :) and I love that you are teaching your kids that exercise is NOT a chore - we get the best workouts when we play :) Keep up the great work!

  6. Great job even pushing through illness! Rock on.

    Very beautiful goal for your kids... I agree that I make exercise harder for myself because I just forget to move, play and have fun. Funny how we develop those kind of hang-ups as we grow up. Right now my kiddos don't have to be told to play. They do it naturally.

    Keep up your healthy living. You had a great week. Just think what you will be up to when you are 100% better?

  7. Congratulations on hitting the 30 lb mark!!! You need to update your button on the right! :) Have a great week!

  8. OMG congrats on reaching your goal!!! That is fantastic...and I do hope you get better dear. XXOO

  9. Congrats on your loss! I definitely agree with the moderation. If you dont enjoy what you eat why would you keep doing it. You can definitely make healthy taste good, but sometimes treating yourself is good too. Hope you feel better this week. Great job sticking with the challenge and not giving up while being sick, that is awesome!

  10. lbs is amazing. Seriously!!! You are quite the inspiration to all of us on determination. I am so glad that you are part of the Sistahood!!
