Mamavation Monday ~ Change it Up

November 14, 2010



First, I want to say Thank You to my Mamavation Sistas… you are all so encouraging to me on my journey to healthy living.  Last week many of you left comments encouraging me to incorporate more strength training and weights with my cardio.  I took your advice and the scale moved another pound this week! 

I clocked 370 minutes of cardio AND 95 minutes of weights and strength training.  The cardio:  elliptical, bike, stairs, rowing.  The strength training and weights:  Kettle bell and free weights at home and the gym plus, I’ve been looking for a few good work out dvds.  After watching Suzanne Bowen last week on mamavation TV – I ordered her new dvd ‘Gorgeous Core’.  I had a chance to try a couple of the work outs… Wow!  She is a great teacher, she explains every part of the exercises to make sure we get the most out of it.  I am looking forward to using her workouts regularly.  An added bonus – I got $7.00 off the dvd with the mamavation code!  Also, at the suggestion of some of my mamavation sistas, I got the 30 day shred and Shred it with Weights ( kettle bell work out) dvds.  They are both fantastic!  I was needing some new ideas for my kettle bell.  I am excited to have some options to change it up a little.

Last week at Mamavation TV I won a pair of Earth Footwear!  I can’t wait to try them out and tell you all about them! 

Looking to the coming weeks… I am trying to mentally prepare myself to make it through the holiday season committed to healthy living.  I want to keep up the work outs, the water, the fiber and continue to lose weight even during the holidays. 

Congrats to our mamavation sista of the week:  Scarlett of @MMScarlett
