@AlyssaBecthold Mamavation Post: We Can Do This!

As we bring week three of Mamavation to a close, I am so thankful for the new faces and changes that have entered my life. So many of you have become so important to me in such a short amount of time, that now I wonder how I ever lived without you.

Thank you to Earth Footwear for hanging out with me every waking hour of everyday. You have become a permanent fixture in my life and I count on you for constant reminders of my goal with every step I take.

Thank you to EA SPORTS Active for constantly kicking my butt into gear. I enjoy our time together, even though it is a bit of a love/hate relationship.

This week has been more of a mental challenge and that is where having a support system becomes so critical to success. You can follow the plan to the letter, do your workouts, eat right and sometimes your body goes through a stall for a few days. I am in a transition and my body is sensing it.

Some days I think I may not be eating quite enough food to keep my metabolism moving fast enough. Thankfully, I have an awesome Mamavation team that is keeping close track of my progress and helping me make adjustments along the way. I trust them completely. They are the experts.

I know what I am good at and I know where my weaknesses are. Surround yourself with strengths. That is a lesson I learned years ago as I was beginning my career. You will go further in life if you surround yourself with people you can learn from, they will move you forward.

To recap this week, it’s been a week of challenges and celebrations. The funeral of a close friend taken from us too soon. A birthday party for my little girl turning six-years-old. The circle of life.

And in the end, I realize this is our one and only chance to get this right. I am so proud to be here with each and every one of you.

As we begin our last month together in this Mamavation campaign, let’s vow to make it the best one yet!

We can do this together.
