I am a very weird person I love having weeks where there are tons of ups and downs. Now this may seem really weird, but there is a good reason why. Sundays starts off good was a great day at church, then we noticed Logan was acting sick but did;t think to much of it. When we get a phone call from my sister tell me my niece has strep throat! We watched Logan and on Monday he was getting very sick the doctors was closed till Tuesday so we had to suffer. Monday night was pure hell! Logan was so sick he slept in our bed and was up almost ever hour. This was not fun at all. Tuesday comes we go to the doctor and sure enough he has strep throat. Now this was a major down. Logan hates median unless you can chew it up, so getting him to take anything was hard. But heres the things on Tuesday we my doctor gave me great news he said I am all clear to apply to be the next mamavation mom. There is the up! I was online Tuesday night thinking about should I apply or not, seeing as I am a very late bird and Leah likes early birds. I was talking myself out of it when Rachel and Stephine talked to me and told me I could do it. It was the little push I needed so I made a video and got it all uploaded. It honestly took me a while to push the submit button cause I was scared. But after I got done I let my friends all of you online know about it and was so amazed at the support I got right away! Things where looking up, when I started to feel sick. Not knowing what it was I went to the doctor on Thursday for some blood work to be done and found out I had strep throat now! I tweeted out to everyone and was floored with get well soon. That was a down that turned into an up! Mamavation was been that up in my life. I have never once thought bad about this sisterhood. Now when you think of Sisterhood what do you think about? I think about so many things but one that sticks out to me is support. So I am going to ask you all for your support. If I have inspired you in any way please tweet out Hey @bookieboo! I want @beeacutie2 to be the next #Mamavation Mom. She has my support! http://bit.ly/aorv3Y
I know without a shadow of doubt in my mind that if I would of never saw mamavation on twitter I would still be a person who was ok with being overweight. I am not that person anymore. I will lose the weight and I will support others in their goals to lose weight.
This week blogging carnival is sponsored by Gamestop, and they asked a very good question.
What are ways you can work out without having to leave the house?
One of my fav. ways to work out is running and playing outside in the backyard with Logan! I also love playing on my moms wii Just dance 2 with my niece and nephews. They honestly keep me fit. My last way is to do ballroom dancing with my hubby in the kitchen!
I am so excited to start this new chapter in my life! I am so grateful for you all! XOXO Amanda
p.s. opps forgot to let you all know I am down 5lbs but really i think its because I have been sick so I would say for real only 3lbs!
