I’m Pledging the Mamavation Sistahood

To any regular readers of Resourceful Mommy, it is no surprise that I have been battling to achieve a healthy lifestyle and a slimmer body for most of my adult life.  Most of you have also become well acquainted with the Mamavation program created by Leah of @Bookieboo.  Today I am finally going to pledge to join the Sistahood. I need some accountability for the choices I’m making and the goals that I’m setting beyond just me.  Let’s face it.  I am very good at lying to myself.  So today I am setting some specific goals, and I am sharing them, not just here but on Mamavation as well.

1. No more night time snacking: When I finish hosting Twitter Parties, I often still have other work to do, emails to answer, blog posts to write.  Eating dinner at 6:00 and then working until 11:00 often leaves me hungry, but snacking isn’t the answer.

2. More movement: I bought an elliptical in January, my husband fixed what he had assembled incorrectly in April, and it is still sitting there unused.  I need to change that.

3. More accountability: I’m going to weigh myself every day and follow my ups and downs, paying attention to what I’m doing to cause them.  I’m not going to list numbers here (are you kidding me?!), but I will post results.  Nothing like a couple thousand people to help you with being honest.

Let the pledging begin!

  • Fantastic news! Go for it!

  • So glad to have you joining us! I look forward to seeing your journey and cheering you on along the way. Do be careful about weighing yourself everyday. There can be fluctuations, and it can wreak havoc on your motivation. Just keep that in mind, and I know you will do fine.

  • So excited to see you pledging Amy! YAY! Soon you will be a official sista!!

    I think weighing yourself everyday will cause upsets. Your weight will fluctuate daily, hourly infact. This will cause upset where it is not needed. Pick a day and stick to that day at weigh in. I weight in every Monday morning.

    I cant wait to follow you and support you! Let me know if you need anything!

  • Great tips. Accountability always works for me. Good luck! Mommyteaching.com

  • Good for you! I am so glad that you joined the group. It’s an awesome group of women. Weigh yourself weekly…I make my husband hide the scale from me so I can not do it more often than that 🙂

    That’s wonderful, Amy! Glad you are “going for it!” My dh and I have cut back on eating due to things being slow at his work and that, in turn, affecting the groceries we are purchasing. Non essential items have been getting crossed off the gro. list. I will have to say things have been better $$ wise for us the past couple of weeks. TTL…! Anyway, we just need to keep the right mindset about what we are eating and how much. Wishing you the best!
