Your Average Minivan Mom


I am your average minivan Mom with full time job outside of home and full time job inside of home. I am always running late taking kids to babysitter or classes. I am in grocery stores, doctor offices, and playgrounds. I am like so many and I want to be Your next Mamavation Mom.

I have two kids, two very active monkeys – 3 year old girl and 18 months old boy. They are the best when they first wake up in the morning (don’t they all). They are so adorable – I would film their every move and would watch it after they go to sleep

My husband and I met at the dealership and didn’t like each other. It’s been 11 years and I can’t imagine my life without him. Hmm, I guess I don’t believe in a love from the first sight, ah?


Life is crazy and things get on the way and at the end of the day I forget about taking care of myself. I really want to change that! Please cast your vote http://www.mamavation.com/2011/03/vote-for-mamavation-mom-3.html for @elenka29

Thank You for being here for me and for support I get every day. I will continue doing what I can to give you back the same.


XOXO,

Lena

Mamavation Monday – Week 10

Time is flying when you have fun. Right? I’d have to agree – the days are crazy and I am just trying to hang on. 
Thank you all of you for the amazing support – I feel so blessed! In the whole honesty I cannot believe how many friends I gained here. I love you all!!! 
Working my best on workouts, but I know I can do better. And I will do better!
I took a day off on Friday and went out with my girlfriend and we relaxed – we had a breakfast and lunch and some shopping and got our vans detailed. It was quite nice. Some people prefer a spa – we decided to spa our mini-buses. 
Plan for the week is to step it up with my workouts and finally to get myself back into the routine. 

Please enter one or two or all three of my giveaways

To push ourselves further and harder than we ever thought possible. Her determination, motivation and support is overwhelming.While it might seem that she is being hard on us she is doing it out of love girl. Unconditional love and support.

Mamavation Monday – Week 10

Thank You for stopping by – you have no idea how much I appreciate every single comment.
I hoped to bounce back into my normal lifestyle by now, but it has been taking longer than expected. I am still stressed and it shows in dark chocolate consumption. Yes, I know.  Thank You for the #mamavation applicants daily  hazing – by the time I get home from the office I have my workout to do list.

I should be getting my cool custom Trek bicycle within a day or two. I am very excited and I hope to have a picture of the beauty (that’s me) and the bike posted next Monday. I also used my CSN Gift Card I won recently toward a new backpack from Luggage.com. It’s Mountainsmith All Terain Approach 35 Travel Pack and it’s 100% Recycled and designed for women.  Wooooot!!!

My plan for this week is to get back on the horse with scheduled workouts and outdoor sports.

Mamavation Monday

How are you all doing?

I am not proud of my week. All the stress of last weeks (work related stress) finally got to me. I am exhausted, have no energy. No surprise on the scale – gained few pounds. 

Main task for the week is to get my butt back on track and that includes drinking water.

This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by Fit Studio 

Come and join us at Mamavation TV on Monday 9 CST


Question: What time of day works best for you to be active?  How do you make sure you stick to those planned workouts?
My usual time for workout is evening after kids go to sleep, but lately I figured multiple times. It is all about the options, right? Morning- get up 40 min early and workout – usually workout DVD, lunch – 1 mile run, evening – 30-60 min WII workout. How do I stick to the schedule is by following the daily routine (and that includes going to sleep on time). Having options helps to. If I oversleep in the morning – I can run at noon and double up on evening workout.

This post is sponsored by SEARS FitStudio and I’m writing this to be entered into a giveaway hosted by Mamavation and sponsored by Sears.

I want to be the next Mamavation Mom (Campaign 8)

And I am so back applying for the next Mamavation Mom Campaign #8. What does it mean? If selected I would go through a online boot camp (the camp that kick some major butt). If not selected I would still go through a big challenge with other losers (from weight stand point)  :)

 I am a mom of two toddlers and I have a crazy life.
