Mamavation Monday - Back to Basics

Happy Monday! First off, I don't know if any of you noticed, but we have our own domain here! That's right, I am officially the incredibly proud owner of! Now, don't bother to click that link because it will just bring you right back here. We are still hosting on Blogger so if you use the old address, it will bring you right here! You have no idea how excited I am about this! It's like we're official now or something. Woot!

Now, on to weight loss or in my case this week, weight gain. It wasn't a huge gain and I am totally pms'ing (sorry guys in the crowd!) so I'm not surprised. I always retain a bunch of water and who knows what else before girly grossness starts. Knock on wood (and a lot of work this week) that come next Monday, I'll be past this plateau. I'd really love to hit that 15 pounds lost mark! Plus, with any luck, I'll finally  be done coughing up the green grossness that has been in my lungs ever since I stayed at my parents' house the last time. Yes, that was over a week ago. Yes, I probably have bronchitis or something. Yes, it's really, really annoying...I wonder how much all that gunk weighs...I guess we'll see where I am in a week!

I titled this post back to basics because that's just what I need to do. With everything happening, I slipped further away from my healthy habits and slid somewhere in the middle. My goals for this week is to keep working on water. For some reason, I'm really struggling with this one. Maybe I need to re-form my water brigade and get us all back into the habit. On top of that, I don't remember the last time I actually worked out. Then, along came Gruntstyle workouts with Mamavation. The official challenge starts today and lasts for 2 weeks. I don't think there are any prizes or anything, though that would be awesome and a great motivator for a lot of us. Aren't we such materialistic things these days? It's being led by a former Army Drill Sergeant which to me is like basic training! Well, this body certainly needs it, I tell ya!

If you see me around online, encourage me and push me. Challenge me...dare like ye old drill sergeant and tell me I'm going to give up and have to report in that I did. Pride is a powerful button to push. If you need extra love, encouragement or support this week, drop me a note and I'll see what I can do. Not only is Mamavation a community, but so is Welcoming Weight Loss. In fact, we'll probably be opening slots for 1-2 more people to begin posting here so if you're interested, let me know!

Average Daily Water Intake: 28oz
Workouts: 300 bicep curls & tricep extensions (Take that, Drill Sergeant Gruntstyle!)
Weight Change:278.4 (+1.4 pounds)
Overall Weight Change: -13.2 pounds

The prize for doing the challenge will be you hitting the 15lb loss mark. :)

I am in the same boat. I gained quiet a bit back since the last campaign ended, if I continue at this rate it will not be pretty. Time to get serious.


I hope you hit the 15lb mark. What did you think of the first Grunt Style workout? Best of luck on your journey:)

I think its really hard to find the motivation to work out when going through that time of month. not sure how to get motivated when I hurt so bad that I can barley stand up. It's a struggle!!!
