Mamavation Monday – Week 10

When we left for vacation, I was determined to get the best out of my time off. I started 2 week challenge wit Mr. Bookieboo and got myself moving. Being around two active kids has its perks – you gotta move around fast. Lucky me, they are good nappers and I get few hours to myself. Between hours in the waterpark and climbing structures and the actual workouts, my muscles were sore and it felt good. Well, couples days later I found out myself slacking off and (what do you know?) looking for excuses to relax. I guess, vacation is a vacation. On top of things – our internet connection vanished for couple days, so we were forced to unwind (while attempting to check my email every half hour). We came back on Friday, but I am still wearing waterpark wristband  today. I guess that mean the vacation went well.

Question of the week: 
How does your family support your weight loss efforts?

My husband is amazing – he has been very constructively  optimistic through my weight gain-loss journey, but when it comes to my parents, it is more like “You don’t eat anything – have a piece of cake, one piece will not hurt you…” Do you remember “Are you vegetarian?.. I’ll make some lamb” from My Big Fat Greek Wedding? Yeah, something like that…
