Movement Challenge –
Lots of movement this week – especially Saturday! Total for the week was 203 Minutes! (Not counting the walks I took on breaks at work )

    You go girl!

    First of all.. CONGRATULATIONS! 🙂 I’m super proud of and excited for you! you’ve done great, and I know you’ll rock this!

    Secondly.. what were you holding in the video? I don’t know if you said it in the last few seconds.. my phone rang, and I can’t get it to load again for me 🙂


  4. Good luck with the campaign! Can’t wait to see what happens next.

  5. I am so happy for you Shelly. Congrats, congrats, congrats. I know you will do great as a campaign mom.

  6. Wow. That is A LOT of jumping jacks!! Good for you!! I absolutely love your attitude too, Shelley. I wish everyone could win the #Mamavation Mom title and I hate seeing Sistas drop out because they didn’t win the position. You are SO right in saying that everyone is a winner just for sticking their necks out!

    Good luck tonight!

  7. Time to recommit to mamaguns girl! I’m sensing that most of the challengers are finding it hard to fit in the strength on top of everything else. I believe in you though. I know you’ll get back on the wagon! I hope the rest of today (Monday) goes by quickly. I can only imagine how anxious you are for the Twitter party! Good luck, you’re amazing!

  8. I thought it was a toga! Kinda disappointed that it’s not. 😉

    You had a great week! And I’m on pins and needles for you tonight, I can’t wait!

  9. I heart you lady. I wish you could all win. I really do, and I hope you do!! I love your vlogs, but what is that white thing in front of you? It looks like you’re covered in vanilla frosting! Ha ha, Maybe that’s my love of cupcakes coming in.

    So happy that you lost again this week. You are SOOOO in the zone, girl, and for that reason, I know you will kick ass on whichever challenge you do. I love your graphics!! So cute.

  10. So your pre-baby weight is pretty much my number, too! I need to do a meatless week — it’d drive my son — Mr. Pork Products — crazy.

    Good luck tonight — it’s kinda like Oscar night, huh?

  11. WOW! Look at you losing weight and working your tail off. And great work on your mile times! (A little envious I say that because I am SLOWWWWWW). All your work is paying off, sistah.

  12. You GO girl! You’re going to rock it out!

  13. Glad your meatless week was a success! You should definitely share some of the recipes!

    Congrats on your loss! You’re rockin’!

    BIG HUGS! Try not to let the nerves kill you before tomorrow night 😉

  14. Big squishy hugs!! Rooting for YOU!!
