Hey everyone I know I already posted but I figured if I didn't do my post tonight I might be too nervous/excited to post tomorrow.  So this week in terms of a recap-According to my home scale I lost a bit under two pounds but having to put clothes on to weigh in at weight watchers I was down .8 which means in two weeks I have lost almost 3 pounds and you know what that is just fine for me. As a girl who only looses about .5 a week I will take it.

Mamavation Mondays For the first time in a long time I feel confident that I can do this again.  For a long time I have felt defeated and not wanting to put in the effort.  Yet for these last few weeks I have been pushing myself diet wise and fitness wise to a whole new level.  I was asked to try not eating grains after breakfast and I have pretty much stuck to that...it has sucked but it has made me really think about what I am doing in terms of eating.  I realize that I waste a lot of calories/points on carbs.  Carbs that are although whole grain might just be adding to my weight issue.

Then the fitness piece-I have done more fitness challenges this last month then I ever have.  Earlier this week I did 340 burpees, I won't lie I cried.  I mean cried when the hazing came out on twitter.  How was by big heavy ass going to get that done.  Then I got a message from Greta one of the other moms and she was crying too.  It made me realize this is hard for all of us, but we can do it if we put our minds to it.  So I did it, 20 at a time, sometimes ten...over the course or a few hours I got 340 on them done.  I was so friggin proud of myself.

That pride also carried over to starting my training for a 5k-I started that Sunday.  I won't lie I hated every damn second of it....but I did.  Even when I thought I would quit the running portion I kept going because if my ass could do 340 burpees it sure as shit could do this training for a 5k!

Needless to say I am so happy the direction I am heading.  If I am chosen as a Mom awesome lots of hard work ahead but I can do it.  If not this has been an amazing push in the correct direction.

Hope you all had as great of a week as I did!

    You are Tough!

    Way to stay positive! Sounds like you have some good people in your life to lean on when things get tough! Hubs always tells me when i dont lose, or only lose a little, that our bodies have to build muscle too... so maybe you'll have a bigger loss this week... or next!

    you'll have to let us know how the cutting carbs thing works out... I did really well on Atkins in high school but this time I am sticking to counting calories not carbs... I dont get bored or feel restricted that way... everything in moderation?

    Hope you have a great week hun!

    Just what is the Bhagavad-gita? The purpose of Bhagavad-gita is to deliver mankind from the nescience of material existence. Every man is in difficulty in so many ways, as Arjuna also was in difficulty in having to fight the Battle of Kuruksetra. Arjuna surrendered unto Sri Krsna, and consequently this Bhagavad-gita was spoken. Not only Arjuna, but every one of us is full of anxieties because of this material existence. Our very existence is in the atmosphere of nonexistence. Actually we are not meant to be threatened by nonexistence. Our existence is eternal. But somehow or other we are put into asat. Asat refers to that which does not exist.

    How to read this book?
    First read the Introduction, then start on Chapter 1, read through all the verses, then on to Chapter 2, and so on, until you finish all 18 chapters.

    If you have any questions about the Bhagavad-Gita while you are reading it, if there is some part that you don't understand, feel free to email me and I'll try my best to answer your questions.


    And in case you are not the philosophical type, a person who likes to read philosophy, then just try chanting the following mantra for just 15 minutes a day and see what the effect of it is in your personal life.

    Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
    Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

    In the end, what do you have to lose?
