#mamavation Monday – George Foreman Knock out the fat weight loss challenge – Week 8

This whole holiday weekend has me WAY off… I mean I know it’s Monday, but I forgot it was Monday… know what I mean?

This is a busy time for me – my boys are up in Colorado spending quality time with the grandparents and I’m super busy myself!  17 – the number of times I’ve talked to my mother in the last 3 days. ’nuff said

As a busy mom, we need quick, fast meals that leave all my boys satisfied.  That used to mean “fast food” but, with the George Foreman Grill, that now means REAL food – fast.  Check out the video below to see what I mean!

Delish! Fast! HEALTHY! a perfect solution on a busy night 🙂


I opted to serve them on the Ozery One Bun and my kiddos gobbled them UP!  As you can see here, also included a serving of Sweet potato fries – sprinkled with cumin… I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!


Seriously, cooking with the George Foreman grill means faster, healthier cooking that doesn’t heat up my kitchen .  When it’s 100 degrees outside, that is a serious win in my book.


As of this week, I’m down another lb!  HEY LORI – I LOST A LB!

In other news – the finalists have been selected for Mamavation Mom Boot Camp – Campaign 9!  Good luck ladies and don’t forget – everyone who has applied is a winner in my book because you’ve made the decision to change your life!  Lean on your resources and don’t feel like you have to go at it alone! We are ALL here for you!

And, as if perfect timing, this week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by Eco Foil Pans... which we actually bought this weekend at the store!  We are doing a lot of grilling this weekend – and keeping things light with fresh fruit instead of heavier potato salads.

Don’t get me wrong – there’s lots of heavier fare around – hot dogs, hamburgers, brisket – my mother-in-law is having 70 people over!!!  BUT! just because it is around, doesn’t mean I have to eat it.  And when she asked me to bring a desert, I knew EXACTLY what I was going to make! the perfect summer “cake” – Angel food cake with fresh blueberries and strawberries!  Patriotic and healthy. 🙂


I guess my point is that with every action, ask yourself – am I walking towards my goals or away from them?  Am I leading by example for my family?  That helps me to stay healthy.

I hope you all have a VERY happy and healthy 4th of July!

This post is sponsored by Eco Foil Pans and I’m writing this to be entered into a EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale giveaway hosted byMamavation.  Additionally, I am one of 10 bloggers selected to take part in theGeorge Foreman Knockout The Fat Weight Loss Challenge.  As a participant, I received a George Foreman grill and will be compensated at the end of this challenge.  Even still, the opinions here are 100% my own and are not modified or influenced by anyone else.



  1. Congrats on the loss!! I didn’t even think of the GFG keeping the kitchen from turning into a people-oven. I’m def going to pull mine out more!

  2. Love your vlog. I am hooked ozery bakery buns, but cannot find them around me
    And Eco-Foil picture is awesome. Do me a favor (when you can). Post it on FB and tag the band – I’d love that!!!
    Thank You for being so awesome

  3. Still so envious of your grill! I want one so bad. Those burgers looked realllly tasty. I’m so glad to see you rocking it! Yay for your weight loss! I’ve missed you!

  4. Happy 4th. Sounds like a busy time and I bet you are keeping busy with your “littles” up near me. Congrats on the weight loss.

    • I swear every summer is busier than the last… but it’s all fun and at least Ihave the energy now to keep up with it all 🙂

  5. Love your video, Shelley! I totally agree and also love that use the George Foreman grill doesn’t heat up my kitchen during this HOT weather. Love that!!

    You’re doing awesome, girl! Keep it up!

    • I never realized how much the oven heats up the kitchen until I stopped using it. Even used the toaster over for the sweet potato fries!

  6. Yummy! That burger looks delicious! Way to go on the continued success with your weight loss journey! Keep it up! 🙂 Proud of you.

    • I would have never thought I’d like turkey burgers, but they were so juicy and delish! ALL my boys asked for more – even the hubs!

  7. Thanks for the cooking demo. I bet I could stick one next to the bed and eat better than I have been lately. Way to go on dropping another pound. Your doing awesome!

    • that’s what we need to do – stick a George Foreman Grill and mini fridge next to your bed – get some high school student to do you grocery shopping for you and Wa-Lah! Sending you tons of hugs darlin 🙁
