Mamavation Monday: This and That

It's hard to believe another Mamavation campaign is coming to a close! It went by so quickly! I am so proud of the hard work the Mamavation Moms put in, both in making their lives healthier as well as their homes!  We are all so lucky to have such a fearless leader in Leah, giving us all these opportunities to learn more about fitness, GMOs, detoxing our lives, and healthy eating! Leah Rocks!

I have just started preparing myself for the half marathon I am doing in December. I am so excited! This will be my first half marathon ever! If you have trained for a half before, what plan did you follow, and how did you like it? Do you have any advice for me to make this experience better?

As people everywhere prepare to send their children off to school (or if like me you've already done this) there is no denying that summer is swiftly coming to an end. Unlike so many of you however, the end of summer does not quite usher in the ideas of crisp fall air, warm apple cider, pumpkin patches, and the crunch of dry leaves underfoot. Here in Florida one thing I do look forward to in the fall, is the end of the rainy hurricane season. The rain is wonderful for our yard, but this past year or so it has been nothing more than a headache! You see our roof began leaking a while ago, and as time has gone on, the damage it has done to our home has gotten even worse. It's gotten to the point that I actually found mushrooms growing in one of our windowsills! It was horrible! I have done my best to keep everything dry, and clean, but we really need a  professional to come out and repair our roof. My husband has been up there repeatedly patching and trying to find the source of the leak, but without much success. Recently our family was nominated by friends to take part in a contest for a new roof! A local and very generous company is giving away a new roof to a deserving family here in our county. In order to win, we just have to garner as many Facebook likes as possible on the post right here . You have to first like the page, and then like our picture. If you could do this, or share that link with friends I would be eternally grateful! Thus far the outpouring of support, and people's kind words have been very uplifting.
