Mamavation Monday: My Own 7-Week Challenge?

June 3 will mark 13 years since the day we found out we would be parents for the first time. It’s also 7 weeks from now. Since it was at that point I gained my first few pounds from being a mommy, how awesome would it be now — 5 kids and 13 years later — to reach the same weight I was that day when we sat down in the clinic and found out I was in my 6th week of pregnancy with our daughter — our first born baby? I began my personal challenge last night at 11pm when I hit the treadmill before bed with one goal in mind: size 8 jeans on an approximately 147 pound frame by June 3, 2012. That’s 3 pounds to lose per week.

My motivation? Showing off my new body (or my old body, however you want to look at it lol) in a bikini to my husband when he gets home in July ;) Now, sorry this is so short, but … I’m late for an appointment with a treadmill and an ab machine!

    That is a great challenge for yourself. It will be a wonderful reward for yourself and your husband when he gets home. :)
