Mamavation Monday

Unfortunately my life has been turned upside down since coming to Texas but I'm dealing with it ok.

Well I say unfortunately but there's been a lot of positives too. I lost 1 lb this week. It was a tough week. I actually took off for West Texas last Monday and returned on Tuesday. A two day turnaround house hunt. Luckily I struck gold with house I went to check out.

I packed lite since it was a two day trip and I also packed my best friend from home and my 9 month old! Yes Ezra went along for the trip. He can be a little tricky to deal with so mommy brought him along. I have to say he did well. He slept like a champ the way back- 4 hour nap! I was so glad, I know I hate to see my babies upset. But I also packed a great bunch of healthy snacks to munch on during the drive. I did not drink any soda, I was so proud of myself! That's normally the first thing people reach for.

Anyhoo- I'm back home w/my parents and plan on doing some Nike workouts on my phone during Ezra's naptime from now on. I really want to drop 5 lbs or more by the time I see my husband again.. I've got 3 weeks to see him.. So I'm cracking down.  I have to add that I would LOVE to win an Omron Body Fat scale this week during Mamavation tv.

That's my week and I'm now returning to posting my daily journals as well. I'm so glad to be a part of the Mamavation community. They are all fantastic and are so supportive of each other.

  1. wow Candy. I can't imagine what it's like to be a military spouse. My husband used to be in the military before I knew him when he was younger. He was honorably discharged when his dad died and he could no longer focus.

    Thanks for stopping by my Special Mom Space blog. It doesn't get a lot of love.....yet :-)

  2. I love 4 hour nap. It's like so much time for me - I can't believe. I hope your life gets a bit better

  3. Good luck with the house hunt. We just went through that a few months ago. It can be very stressful. I' so proud of you for not going for the soda. I have to admit that or coffee is the FIRST thing I turn to so good for you! Keep it up. You can lose the 5 lbs in 3 weeks. Just keep on moving!

  4. Congrats on losing that pound! You are heading in the right direction!

  5. Totally understand about your life being crazy since being in Texas--mine has been the same! (we just moved here to East Texas a few weeks ago....because hubby just got out of the Coast Guard) Yey for having successful house hunting! :) And yey for the 1 lb lost!
