Mamavation Monday: OK

Yes, I have been having rough couple weeks – like I can’t think straight and can’t be productive rough.

I have been gaining or not losing weight for such a long time, I am disguised it with myself. I look in the mirror and ask myself “And you call yourself a health blogger?” The only new resolution goals I’ve reached so far are related to my blog.

I know I have to change things, but I don’t know how to combine everything I want/like to do. Yes, I know it’s impossible and I have prioritize things, but I want to accomplish everything! Maybe I just don’t know what else o write about for this Mamavation Monday post.

Exactly a year ago, my husband and I took a drive to Alabama to deliver donations and supplies to tornado victims. we had a Mother’s Day at Dennis on the middle of nowhere. This was the same time I started George Forman Challenge that took me down 2 dress sizes and made me a much happier person. I try to look at today as a day 1, as the beginning of a new challenge, but I also feel like a “I fell and I can’t get up” person in the old commercial.

Is that weird?


  1. Yay for new beginnings! You got this, girl. We are all here to support you :)

  2. Just get up and start again. It is hard. Believe it or not, I used to weigh 70lbs more than I do today. I flopped a couple of times before I finally found a way to keep it off. I have now kept it off for 10 years (except when I was pregnant!). It is a lot of work. You need to find what works for you–everyone is different. Whenever you slide, just start again!

  3. Hugs, Lena. I know you are going through alot and it is so hard sometimes to just brush yourself off and start again. Just take a deep breath and think of the few small things you could do to make a difference.
    Not a weird feeling you are talking about at all…I have that same feeling of wanting ‘everything’. At least we can admit that we need to prioritize. No use in trying to be a supermom and killing yourself doing it all.
    I hope you have a fantastic week :)

  4. I’ve been part of your trend! Let’s both kick ourselves in the butt. As the old saying goes, “Try and try again!”. And at least you know what you’re doing wrong! I’ve been having a hard time exercising, well, getting off my butt and exercising, but today I made a calendar with my workouts for the month as well as my rewards, maybe doing something like that will help you? You can get back on the wagon, lady! You CAN do it!

    Nope. Not weird at all. Losing weight is a roller coaster for most of us and it all comes down to whether or not you’re willing to get back up after you fall down. Get back up! You can do this!

  6. Not weird at all! Healthy living is not easy, especially if it’s a lifestyle change. We all struggle and go through peaks and valleys, need to regroup, refocus, reprioritize. You already know what you have to do, now is the time to go and do it! Love you girl, we got your back!

    It’s not weird at all! And sometimes it all can be a bit overwhelming (eat this, not that, but not that either because it has this and that in it; do this work out,but do this too and dont forget to do this .., yada, yada) I am a person who has a tendency to grab it all and pick up and run.., and as I’m running I see myself dropping everything and then all the sudden I’m walking then I just stop. So I have decided I’m going to eat as healthy as I can work out and pick ONE major thing to be good at until I get it down, and move on to the next on the list.
    I’m here if you want to take it slow with me! =)

    No, definitely not weird at all. I feel so overwhelmed sometimes that I just have to take a step back and say Whoa! I need to slow down. The fact of the matter is you are no lesser of a person just because you haven’t accomplished “everything”. We are all human, we fall and we get up. I know that you are on your way back up and you will continue to climb that hill. I hope you have a good rest of your week :)

  9. Its a journey. These things can lead us down so many paths. Like you said you have to prioritize. Maybe focus on one area for a week then move on to the next group of goals the next week? I’ve let my blog go because I have to focus on my weight and family first. I think as women we think we can do it all, but honestly we can’t, it just isn’t humanly possible.

    Oh hun sorry your feeling that way. It is no fun to get in the rut. Maybe you could look at smaller steps smaller success, they will grow.

    I know you can do this Lena. Put yourself first. if even just a little bit.
