Pushing All my Buttons (mamavation Monday)

Hula hoop

I’m a procrastinator.

There, I said it out loud.

I won’t try and fix a problem (with myself…my kids get IMMEDIATE attention) until it’s a pretty big deal.

And my weight has been a pretty big deal for long enough. I went through the Mamavation campaign, and then my life kinda fell apart at the seams (and everywhere in between) so it was easy to let the exercise routine and everything else fall by the wayside.

(I wish my Gruve still worked….that was a handy tool 😦 If BodyBugg wants to give me a bugg, I wouldn’t say no….and would probably wear it EVERYWHERE.)

So now is the time.

Procrastination is over and done with and I’m sick of being this size.

I’m also harder on myself than I am on anyone else. If I fail, I’m super disappointed. If I succeed, I wonder if I could have succeeded even MORE if I tried harder.

So I need to try. More. Right now.

Week 2 of roller derby boot camp was yesterday too. And I was hell-bent and determined not to make a total ass of myself out there on the rink.

So I worked this week. I went hiking and I ran around with the kids and I bartered someone for a weighted hula hoop that’s supposed to help with strengthening my core.

And I did it. I made it through another booty camp without stopping. I didn’t sit down (well, I did twice, to have some water) and I fell a half dozen times, but I know how to fall. So I didn’t hurt myself.

And the only thing that was sore this morning was my lower back, which just means I need to work my core more this week.

GUESS WHAT? I lost 1.6 pounds this week! I can’t wait to see what happens when I adjust my diet too 🙂

Hope you all have a GREAT week, and work just a little bit harder for yourself this week 🙂

Stay tuned for a fun giveaway and a review or two, and maybe a post 😀
