Mamavation Monday: And so it is..
So last night I waited up hoping to find out if I might have made it was one of the five finalists for Mamavation Mom. I was super exhausted from the day's workout, as the hazing (from Saturday evening) included 4 sets of 15 thrusters, 4 sets of 25 burpees, 3 one min planks, 2 sets of 25 v-ups and then another (for Sunday) 4 sets of 25 burpees. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday I was camping with my daughter and her girl scout camp, so when I saw the hazing posted Saturday night, darkness had already fallen and I felt it would be safer to do the workout in the morning, when I could see what I was doing! I got home nice and early and got right to it. A few hours later I saw the Sunday hazing posted and thought, dear God why didn't I just do those burpees at camp hahaha! By the time I finished them I was totally wiped out! It felt AMAZING to be so exhausted though! I took a shower and put on some fresh clothes and we headed to the park with the kids. So by the time I had fed, bathed, and tucked the kiddies into bed I was already beyond tired. I began the waiting game of checking Twitter, FB, and Google+, as well as Mamavation.com for the big announcement. But I just couldn't hang and eventually I passed out. So imagine my surprise and excitement when I awoke this morning and saw THIS!
I am so honored and thrilled to be a finalist! This means the next week will be spent busting my butt, working out, eating right, pushing myself as hard as I possibly can in my quest to be one of the chosen three. I would love if you could show me some support during this time! Also, the big announcement will be made on Monday April 15th during a live Twitter Party from 8 pm to 9:30 pm EST.
So I need to get up my before pictures, and measurements, but I do have my weight. I am starting out at 155. I had a slight weight gain, which is disappointing, I was 154.6, so 0.4 lb gain. I will take it though, as I have been noticing some more muscle definition this week in my legs for sure! My ultimate goal weight is 130lbs. That is not my pre-pregnancy weight, but a weight I am comfortable with, and given the fact that I am developing muscles, I think this is something I can work towards! MY biggest problem is my diet, and I have been working hard at trying to tweak it! Any advice is appreciated! I am so excited for this opportunity, I really hope I make it!!
