#Mamavation Monday: 2-Week Challenge Update and Lunch With @rachhabs!

This week started off great, was not so fun in the middle, and ended on a high note.

I started this week participating in the Mamavation Two Week Challenge with Bob Harper Live.  It. Was. Awesome.  Mark (@MrBookieboo) was helping me modify things as needed to accomodate Baby Deuce, and I was feeling fantastic after my workouts.

#Mamavation Monday: I Finished the #2WeekChallenge

Is it seriously Monday again?  Wow, this week flew by.  This past weekend kicked off a fall filled with out-of-town weddings and weekends away with family and friends.  It’s going to be pretty crazy, but I’m really excited.

I finished the 2 Week Challenge this weekend, and it kicked my bootie!  I lost 1.5 inches total off of my waist and thighs.  Those are some results I can get on board with! ;)

Mamavation Monday: Halfway Through the #2WeekChallenge!

I got involved in Mamavation through their first Two Week Challenge.  I was frustrated with my stalled postpartum weight loss and it sounded like an awesome way to kick my body into gear.  Needless to say, I was hooked.

We’re now halfway through the Two Week Challenge Campaign #10!  As always, I’m getting my butt kicked and I’m loving it.  Okay, maybe I’m not loving those burpees.  Hubster regularly hears me saying, “Burpees are the devil!” as I’m in the middle of a workout.  ;)

We’re Taking the P90X Challenge!

Hubster and I have decided to take the P90X challenge!  Okay, so the truth is that I’m excited about it and he’s begrudgingly going along with it.  I’ve been curious about this extreme 90-day fitness program for quite some time, but was always too scared to try.  One 5k and three Mamavation Two-Week Challenges later, I feel more confident in my abilities.

I Did It! My Pre-Pregnancy Jeans Fit!

When I look at this, I'm happy it *only* took me 6 months! ;)

Yes, I realize it has been six months since my son was delivered via c-section.  I never thought it would take this long or be this much work to get back into my pre-pregnancy jeans.  It’s been a bit disheartening seeing other moms get back to their pre-pregnancy size, or even smaller, months before I have.  But, it’s time to put all that behind me because it’s my time now – I DID IT!  Today I was able to button my pre-pregnancy jeans!!!
