Wow, I want to start this entry off by thanking the folks who stopped by yesterday to give me some encouragement. That's just the kind of motivation I need to go from no way to yes, I can do this. I hope that everyone will keep coming back and maybe even a few more of the Mamavation Sistas will stop by. I feel so gangster when I say Sistas..I think it must be my small midwest town gal thing going on. I like it though...*grins*

So, I'm going to do it. Ok, I'm going to babystep my way up to pledging to the Mamavation Sisterhood. I'm going to start by using their Twitter hashtag and getting to know some of the women better. I'm also going to start checking out the Monday Mamavation posts. That's something I'll be posting here and well, since I'm already posting, that shouldn't be too much of a stretch, right? I think I'm also going to check out the Monday night TV thing that they have online. I'm taking this time to babystep into the "full program" and to learn more about what it is that they do as I go. I do have to say I'm envious of the Sears Fitness equipment that the lovely ladies who are the Mamavation Mamas right now got today! It looks so nice!

That's one of my problems. I know that I need to add exercise into my life at some point  but I'm not sure how I'm going to accomplish that. Financially, I just cannot afford anything, not even a workout video. What I would really love is a fitness program for our Wii. We bought a used system at Gamestop so it didn't come with the balance board or anything like that. This would, at least, allow me to do something indoors until the weather warms up enough that I can get outside and walk. The money just isn't there though, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I live in the middle of nowhere, Michigan (I can't say Podunk because it turns out there really is a Podunk, Michigan) and so we don't have a community pool or fitness center. I need to come up with something, though. I know that exercise is going to be key in losing weight and improving my health.


PS Still looking for healthy snack ideas and recipes. If you have one, please don't hesitate to comment! My body and my boys will thank you!
