  1. Oh sweetie pie! I'm here every night for you. Call me when you feel that urge. I'm a bad Easter candy addict, but that holiday is over and we can move on together.It is tough to go from in your face to everyday. I know you can do this. Go have fun, try to remember your portions, take a pedometer, set that alarm to go to the gym. Have fun but don't go over board.Most of us do gain a tiny bit back as we transition from everyday all day to reasonable live life and workout. It was bootcamp now its life. We are all still here for you. Big hugs!

  2. Aw, Andrea— I'm sorry that you've been struggling. I think that it's all one day at a time– and little steps are doing it. I totally get those feelings you're having. Know that we're here for you, and text me ANYTIME.<3 and hugs! (Wish I was going to Vegas!!!)Wendy

  3. Andrea I love you! First and most importantly remember you are an amazing person, who is also human. It happens. You are in no way a sham! The fact that you posted this vlog with true honesty shows you are not a sham 🙂 I am right there with you. I am trying to get back on track and feeling like I am constantly making the wrong choices. You are not alone, we are all here supporting you & cheering you on! Bootcamp or not we are all still here for you! I can't come live with you BUT I am only a text or phone call away if you need anything! Big hugs!!

  4. OK girl we ALL have our bad days, but PLEASE PLEASE know that it doesn't matter what you did yesterday or this weekend, it matters what you DO TODAY! I've had a hard time coming off my 'cheat' weekend, but I know with each step or each meal I am making a decision. I am here for you and I would love to help keep each other accountable. I am going to DM you my # and you can text or call WHENEVER. This is not a short journey but a LIFETIME and we need to LEARN the healthier habits to make the break from our old way of living.You are such a sweetheart, and I appreciate your support to ME throughout the past few months, and I want to do the same for you. WE GOT THIS GIRL!

  5. Girl you can totally do this!! I am here for you just as you are for me!! Your words have helped me so entirely much that I am forever grateful!! Hope up and lets get our haze and water drinking on!! I'm always just an email/message/phone call away!! Smile! You have made so much progress and a few slip up days do not take the place of your 7 fantastic weeks!! Pitch the candy or have hubs hide it from you do it's not an option!! Your mind is trying to tell you that you can't succeed when you already have!! Follow your heart and push your mind outta the way! Tell yourself you WILL use the gym at the hotel, even if only for 30 minutes!! Small goals will help the morale and give you a great boost!! Do the hazing for today as well ;)) I'm sore as can be,,, feel the lively burn with me lol gp

  6. So, I took care of the workout while you're in Vegas, but my comment didn't go through about the Easter binge. Reese's, Mars, and Cadbury spend millions of dollars on research to ENSURE that people binge on their candy. That is a studied, proven fact. You can never be strong enough to resist forever, NO ONE CAN. Memories of Spring, Easter Egg hunts, and warm fuzzy feelings of being a kid and getting candy flood in as fast as the baskets of Cadbury eggs in March. Don't beat yourself up about it, but don't keep the damned stuff either! Throw it in the outside trash, underneath a bag of dog poop, and then move on with your life. Don't mourn it's loss, starving children don't need it, your children don't need it, and you certainly don't need it. It is trash. Slice up some apples, dip in Sunbutter or peanut butter, and then go for a walk. Write your blogs, go on your trips, hug your kids. Make new Easter memories that don't revolve around that infernal egg made of pure poison. Have a GREAT time on your trip! ❤

  7. Great job on throwing out & giving away some of the candy! Every day is a new day, every hour is a new hour. I totally understand where you're coming from – I feel that way in the month after a race that I train for. I find the best way to get back going to find a new goal, and to create a new plan to reach it. Anyways – have a fantastic trip to Vegas! (I love Vegas – I got married there).

  8. Vegas sounds like fun! I hope it totally does revitalize you! It sounds like you really need a hug, so BIG HUGS to you! I've been doing the overeating the last week or two also, we really are twins LOL. Just remember – when you fall down, you just get right back up! Going through these struggles will help you to be an even better mentor. No one wants to hear from someone whose never had struggles keeping up with it. You're totally not a sham!

  9. "Measure what matters" is my new mantra – remember how you were discouraged that you hadn't lost a lot of pounds, but you totally rocked on inches? That is exactly "measure what matters." So remember that you are beautiful, strong and powerful. Don't focus on where you made poor choices (we all do it), but focus on the strong, beautiful powerful you. And move FORWARD. Always look forward, not back. I think you're awesome. Keep on keepin' on, Mama. Cuz you rock. Vegas is awesome, btw. I recommend sitting by the Trevi fountain at Caesar's and having a Caesar salad & a glass of wine. Have a blast!

  10. I agree with Lindsay! It is totally okay to feel that way sometimes, but then you pick your self up and feel better the next day! YOU CAN DO IT, and you will rock as a mentor!! It's ladies like you that help new momma's like myself succeed, just believing in us!

Tell me what you think!
