Mamavation Monday post on Tuesday


Yes, yes. It is Tuesday and I am stuck on Monday. But let’s get down to business. I am feeling stronger this week and noticed a difference when doing push-ups. Yeah! Hubby says he is noticing a difference and that I am gaining more muscle tone. P90X is helping me once again!

I am still struggling with nutrition. This is nothing new for me, but I am going to try some new tactics. First, I am going to alter my eating habits. I have been reading some samples on my Kindle for two cookbooks. The first one is called Cinch! Conquer Cravings, Drop Pounds, and Lose Inches, by Cynthia Sass. This name and book may sound familiar to many of you, @bookieboo from Mamavation.com is hosting a twitter party this Thursday January 20th from 8-10pm EST with Cynthia Sass, M.P.H., R.D. What has intrigued me about her book is that it starts like a cleanse, or detox,  with a 5 day jump-start then you follow a menu of meal plans for another 25 days that help maximize fat-burning and improving one’s ,metabolism. It teaches you to eat cleaner and healthier. The other cookbook I was reading as a sample on my Kindle was Now Eat This!:150 of America’s Favorite Comfort Foods, All Under 350 Calories by Rocco DiSpirito. Rocco’s Cookbook focuses on Healthy versions of the foods we crave and often have to give up when eating healthy. Rocco is focusing on teaching us how to replace fats, sugar, and cutting back on calories without sacrificing taste. I want to learn how to cook with Greek yogurt, I want to learn how to cook the foods my family loves and knows but make them healthier and guilt-free. So by using Cynthia’s Book first to “detox” my system I can start a new with Rocco’s book and make my family, or my picky boys, think that I haven’t changed their beloved favorites. It’s worth a try and I am in need of a good nutritional over-haul. Now, to pitch the idea to Hubby!

So my goals for the week:

Continue with P90X, Drink more water, talk hubby into my nutrition plan.

I would like congratulate our Mamavation Campaign 7 Moms @christlikemommy, @beeacutie2, and our L.A. Mamavation moms @KateColman77, and @ninemoremonths! You ladies are going to ROCK THIS!

    Love Love LOVE Roccos cookbook! I just had the opportunity to do a giveaway on my blog with that book – I might not have looked through it otherwise. But I am really glad to have it now. Just my 2 cents on the cookbooks.
    Great work with P90x!
