Mamavation Monday

As I explained in my previous post, I'm going to "try" to get fit and in order to do that, there some things that are going to change.

I'm going to pledge to the Mamavation Sistahood, so every Monday I will make a post about health/weight/struggle updates.

The Cupcake Monday Find posts will still be active, bu will be taken place on my Artfire blog.

So I went to pick up the scale and weight myself.....haven't done in years and was a bit scared, but.....voila'!

Yup, it does read 140 lb and I'm only 5 feet tall. eeeek

I used to be 125 lb before kids. I've never been skinny, always a curvy girl and I guess it's ok. But now I'm starting to feel slightly unhealthy.

I sit around a lot and I want to change that. I want to be able to keep up with my children when we play at the playgrounds. So, as I said, one on my new year resolution is to walk at least 30 min per day EVERY day.

I used to drink 2 or more liters of water per day. My skin, my hair were gorgeous. Now I barely finish 1 glass, all the rest is coffee. That's gonna change too. Less coffee and more water. I will need to start tracking down how much water I drink, seriously.

Would be nice if I could kick off 1 lb/month and end up with 130 lb at the end of the year, but I did diet before and I know it can be hard.

But I thought better starting now, at least will avoid gaining more and end up with serious problems, right?

Talk you next Monday :)

Welcome to Mamavation! I just love your crochet items, especially the crocheted pin cushions. I think my daughter would love to play with it.

Great goals! I bet we could all benefit from more water, and I am a big fan of daily walking. Good luck with your progress and I look forward to seeing more of your posts. Cheers!

Welcome to the Sistahood! It's a great group of women. A lot of support. (And I love your cupcakes!)
I'm with you on the coffee/water issue. I love to drink coffee. But it makes a big difference to make that change to more water.
Looking forward to your Monday posts!

Aw Lu, I think that is SO fantastic! Seriously, I've followed a few Momvation Moms on their journeys last year and it's a very humbling experience xD

I'm in agreement with you though-I want to be more active! Although that does depend on the fact of if I'm HEALTHY enough, but still, I want to make an effort as well :)

Good luck to you over this next year! I know you'll do great.
