#Mamavation Monday - Regaining health

Hi ladies! I was totally MIA this week, and for good reason! (Don't worry, I am not leaving ya! I will hold up my end of the deal!)

My house was taken over by yet another sickness. The stomach flu invaded! My oldest son and I were sick Wednesday/Thursday and my youngest son was sick Thursday night. My oldest is still having bouts of diarrhea and vomiting and it starting to show signs of dehydration. I took him to Urgent Care on Sunday, but of course, with this being a virus, there was not much they could do. I am pumping him full of fluids to avoid another trip to the doc. I keep forgetting that my immune system isn't quite what it used to be. My doctor advised me that having an autoimmune diseases coupled with the med I take to maintain digestive health can have an effect on my immune system. I am taking steps to include more vitamin C rich foods, and am currently experimenting with new multivitamin regimine.

The first week after the campaign has been wild. Not only has the sickness thrown me for a loop, but I am working a new schedule at work, and am busy-busy preparing for my sister's wedding which is less that 2 weeks away! Speaking of... I picked up my bridesmaids dress today, and it is SO big! I am going to have to have some major alterations done! Yipee!!! 

So on to my scale pic! This is a new scale, I am reviewing the EatSmart Precision Premium Digital Bathroom Scale. Watch for my official review to come soon! 

I tried taking the picture a few times and this is the best I got because of the backlit display, I will say though, it was very accurate each time I had to step back on! 

My old scale has me at 261.8 so I would say they are pretty close! That does however put me at a gain of 2lbs, but that's okay! Considering the situation this past week, I think I did pretty good! I didn't drink as much water as I should've, especially while being sick, and I definitely wasn't as active. But watch out, I have my eye on the 230's that is my goal for Fitcation!!

I am training for a 5K in May. The proceeds go to the Justin Foundation which focuses on de-bullying our local schools. Stay tuned for more information about this. The website has not been updated recently, but I definitely know it is taking place on May 7 which also happens to be mine and my husband's 6th wedding anniversary!

Mamavation Mom Applicants! I haven't gotten to touch base with as many of you as I would like! Some of you have DM'd me and I have your info! PLEASE email me at kjrobinette at if you want to chat!

What time of day works best for you to be active?  How do you make sure you stick to those planned workouts?

I don't have a particular time of day that works best for me. My work schedule fluctuates, so some days I work out in the morning before I go to work, and some days I workout when I get home from work. If I don't write it on my calendar(s) (yes, even the ones at work) I forget! I even set up reminders on my phone. I have been known to get home from work, crash in the recliner, or get caught up in other mommy duties and totally forget to workout!

It's never fun or easy when you are sick and the family is too. You did a great job being mom this week. Way to go on taking the time you needed to mend. That gain is so small for the situation at hand so don't sweat it.
Good luck with the wedding plans, work, and everything else.
I can't wait to see you in June!
