Mamavation Monday. Week 4. Hanging in there.

Since Monday is my very first wedding anniversary, I'm getting my Mamavation Monday post up on, well technically Sunday.

Those of you following my Mamavation posts know that I'd been changing one small habit each week. Well, on last week's post Leah, the inspiring woman behind all this Mamavation stuff, said she usually suggested changing two small things every two weeks, but liked the small steps approach. I so see what she means.

I didn't do so well at least week's goal, getting active every day.  A few days, the day got away from my and then I didn't feel comfortable walking after dark.

I'm also so insanely busy next week. Monday is my very first wedding anniversary like I mentioned. Then, late that evening we're heading north for a doctor's appointment for Ben's ankle. For those new to my blogs, this spring he shattered his ankle very badly. We moved away from where his doctor was. We're hanging out in our old town to visit family for a day or two and then we head to New York.

Just not the week to add anything new. Keeping up with previous changes is going to be a struggle. So, I'm using this as a "break" week, just working on the past changes.

Week 1- Drink more water
Week 2- Take a prenatal
Week 3- Getting moving everyday
Week 4- Maintain!

P.S. I think I forgot to return some comments last week, it was another busy one preparing for Wear Pink for Cora. I do appreciate all the support and try my best to show support. So, forgive my scatter brained self if I skipped over anyone! I also can't wait until I have more time to hang out in the Mamavation community. I see so much helpful stuff on there. But, I was just over there and noticed Leah is giving away two tickets to BlogHer '11! Neat!

  2. Happy Anniversary!

    Taking this journey in babysteps is the only way to keep ourselves some what sane and make this doable. If we tried to do it all in one week, we would burn out and stop doing it altogether.

    Have a great week!!!

  3. Scarlett is right - slow & steady wins the race. Habits are hard to break & take 4-6 wks to break. I'd make one big change & then add to it once you've mastered it.
    Have a Happy Anniversary!!

  6. happy anniversary!! Good luck with your goals. It is hard to make them stick but by doing the baby steps you are more likely to keep at them. I hope this week you can schedule your workout so time doesn't get by on you. Have a great week!

  9. Happy Anniversary darling! XXOO

    I think when we get overwhelmed, we don't follow through with our changes. Think about what you are challenging yourself to do. Don't do anything overwhelming, cause the point is you have to maintain it like forever. So you may need to dumb it down a bit. And there is NOTHING wrong with that. My changes were minuscule.

  14. Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby! I like the small manageable goals idea. Make it a long term habit instead of a quick fix. :)

  21. I know what its like with an ankle injury you have to relearn to walk and climb stairs etc its no fun, in 08 i fractured my ankle and it took me 5 months to recover. I hope your son has a good recovery

    good luck with your goals for the week

  22. Happy Anniversary! I hope to hear all about your BlogHer trip! Did you get to meet up with Leah?!

  23. OUch shattering an ankle sounds painful!!

    You know what I find? Having a goal to do something every day is hard to do. I usually try to say 3-4 days I'll do something and then I have the mental room if I decide my planned day is needed for a rest. No way I can do 7 days, mostly mentally.

    Glad you took the week off! Happy anniversary!
