This is it - Mamavation week 12

I figured I need to stop at some point and look back. I had my 2nd child in July of 09 and made my first afford to get my body back just about a year ago (December 09) when I bought WII.

My husband works long hours and I have no options of getting to the health club with two kids, I can only rely on what my home workouts. What are the ways you can work out without having to leave the house? DVDs and games mostly. My Netflix lets me rent and instant play so many workout DVDs (and all for flat fee). When it comes to the WII games, I take it very seriously with plenty of research and Gamestop gives me that with reviews and detailed information. By the way, check this deals out - Buy Two Get One Free. It is ON right now and can save you some serious money!!!

Well, back to the goals tracking -
I lost 12 lbs since last January.
I lost 2 inches in hips
I lost 1 inch in breast and waste

It looks like I did loose one dress size

Yes, I could of done better. Well, I will do this year. WITH YOU!!!
I am a very outgoing person, but since English is not my native language, I've been very shy about speaking up. Any kind of popularity contest? Let me cross my name out. Here at Mamavation, I had to speak, because I wanted to be heard. And I Thank You for making go out of my comfort zone

I need to loose around 70 pounds to get to my ideal weight. I know the pounds are not as important as inches are, but I haven't been less than size 10 for so long, I don't know what is the good size to have. Anybody?

And I have to tell you about the 30 day shred! It really got me serious. I only have few times left, but I have been workinf it 6-7 days a week. I didn't loose too many pounds, but these jeans were just right on me in November.

I know we are getting very close to make a decision who is the best suited to become the next Mamavation Mom and I would like to say few words about that. You can look at my application here and read more about me here. However, whoever does make it into the boot camp is in for a hard work and great payoff. All of the applicants are so deserving to make it and that is why there is "Move It and Loose It" Challenge. At the end of the day, girls, we made a commitment to ourselves, our families, and our friends to get fit and nothing should stop us.

Keep track of goals
1. want to shed 10 lbs by the end of January start 200 lb (11/8).
-2.6 lb I am 197.4 (initial start 04/01/10 - 209 lb). Have 7.6 lb to go

2. 2-3 gallons of water a day. I did relatively good. My biggest achievement is drinking my super-size bottle (2.2 L) on New Year eve between two New Eve dinners

3. Stop night snacking.
I had few down days

For this week
I am planning to start my 7 days detox on 01/05. More about it here. Let me know if you'd like to join me or just have questions.
