Ok, I told y'all my goals for 2010 & I'm trying to get help with one of those goals. Yep, you guessed it! I'm trying to get help to get my fat ass in shape! I will need all of you to support me, though!

I had so hoped to join in the competition for Mamavation & procrastination, technical difficulties, & self-doubt almost won out & I almost didn't.

I can't do this by myself, but I need to do something for myself. I don't mean the laziness or playing on the computer that I do in my spare (all of the) time. I need to actually do something for my body. I need to do it for my family. I need to be around for my kid. My hubby needs me to harass him.

I actually kinda wanna stick around, myself. I do stuff that I may not be much to some, but I truly enjoy talking to everyone every day! I like watching movies & going through music & reading books. I just need to work for them. It's like doing chores...if you want your moola, then you will clean your fucking room, right? Nothing is for free.

Watch Lives Change

Remember the help I asked for? For starters, here is what I need you to do. Get on Twitter & write (or cheat & just copy) this: Hey @bookieboo! I want @mentallyinked to be the next #Mamavation Mom. She has my support!

Mamavation is set up to help women lose weight & get healthy by supporting each other. There are tips & recipes, but mainly there is a wonderful support system.

If I win & get to be included in this campaign, I will we posting weekly on my progress & be submitting a food & exercise journal. Even if I don't make it, I think I may do this.

If anyone on Twitter sees the hashtag #Mamavation, or if you see Mamavation anywhere, please show the ladies your support!

I did also join the Pound for Pound Challenge (Thank you, Maria! She doesn't read, but someone pass it on, will ya?). This not only pushes me to do well, it's for a great cause!

I had so much fun filming this video, which is weird because it was the part I dreaded, that I may post all the pieces that got snipped out.

Peace & Love


  1. just watched your video now...
    good luck, and like you said even if for some crazy reason you don't make to the final 2, you can become a "sista" and follow along anyway .

  2. Hello there, I saw you on Gena's show earlier. Even if you are not selected as one of the two mamavation moms for this campaign you can still get into the Sistahood and contribute to the community.

Anyhow ... lol .. that video is so funny and I need to learn what to use to edit a dang video (um actually I am taking a video class semester so yeah lol) and maybe a good webcam ...damn why I'm rambling in your comments is well I don't know lol.
