Mamavation Monday

Can you believe that Christmas is already over? I am really enjoying my time at home with the kids. I guess that is why, once again my Mamavation Monday post is being done on Tuesday.

We have a very active week planned for this week. I'm not focusing on the P90X this week - it's supposed to be a recovery week, but I figure I will more than make up for it with our fun days.

We went roller skating yesterday. We were there for two hours - of course, with two inexperienced kids, I certainly didn't get a full two hours of active skating - so, I decided to count 60 minutes of activity. It was worth 12 PointsPlus value! Wow - that is some good exercise and a lot of fun. My daughter can't wait to go again. We are thinking of trying to go to some open skates on the weekend.

Later this week we are planning some sledding (walking up and down the hill is a good workout, especially in the snow!), some bouncing, and some bowling. All of which are worth Activity Points.

From an eating perspective, perhaps it hasn't been the best food I have been eating, but by watching portions, I actually managed to lose weight the week of Christmas. Granted, it was only 0.2#, but a loss is a loss and over Christmas makes it feel that much better.

I plan to stay active this week with the kids, monitor my portions and gear up for return to routine next week. I'm joining in on the P90X Challenge on Mamavation. I am going to start in Phase 3 and will just cycle through that over the next 90 days.

I took a peek at the Weight Watchers Kitchen Companion App for the IPad yesterday (it's a free app). It looks really neat. I hope to find time to play with it and share my experience with you.

I love roller skating! It's so fun and such a great workout. :) Congrats on losing even over Christmas! I've read a few things about the new WW points, and I'll be interested to see how they work once people really get into them.

I love skating!! I wish there was a skating rink here.

You rock for not gaining! Every bit lost is a bit closer to your goal. So, YOU ROCK! bask in your greatness.
