First off can you all do me a solid and comment on the feature done on me at Run Like A Mother? I will be forever appreciative 🙂
Next up, this was a challenging VLOG for me to do. However I am in a healthy space to challenge myself so I did.
Yes I am loving the Move It or Lose It Challenge because it is forcing me to live with the scale. The challenge is not getting too competitive with the numbers at the detriment to my health. When I mentioned my anxiety over weigh-ins and calipers with the scale in college it was STUPID, my body fat was under 13%. I could not even get my belly button pierced because I had so little fat, yet I had anxiety that I apparently still have.
This challenge is perfect for me because I am in a great head space right now. In the four years I have had this weight on me I have not dieted because I know I can be too extreme when aiming for weight. This is the perfect time to do this because I am in love with myself and in love with my baby so will not jeopardize anything with my body that can affect his food supply.
Eating disorders are a bitch and amaze me how their aftermath can still pop up decades later even if you are in a healthy space. With that said here is my Move It or Lose It picture for the week.
Goals for this week:
- Eat breakfast every day. I have been a proponent of this for years but in the last number of days have been slacking off. WTH? I can’t afford to skip breakfast.
- Pay dues for my local running club. They have been more supportive than inconsistent workout partners and they are a great running club.
- Limit myself to only ONE Greyhound at the Gagaween party on Saturday night. Even if this means going dry at a girls night on Tuesday that may involve a mechanical bull.
In Mamavation bizness congrats to @GAflygirl on SOTW and ME for commenter of the week 😉 Also gotta give love to Subway (@subwayfreshbuzz) for their continued support for Mamavation. Lastly I want to give super big puffy heart love to @Momma_oz and @RachelSteffen who are the new Mamavation moms as well as @CJinKy, @its_gail, @couponprincess for being so gracious after not being selected.
