On this my 33rd year… #Mamavation

One of the benefits of having a birthday so close to the end of the year is that I can really look at my life and set goals for the upcoming year.

I’ve decided to try out to become one of the next crop of #Mamavation Mom’s for 2011. What this means is that if I’m selected, I will be put through a 7 week boot camp experience in which I will receive not only fitness equipment, but also a firm support group and professional resources to help me reach my goal.

Below is my video application to become one of the 5, yes that’s right, FIVE, ladies who will be chosen for this. I will need to not only prove that I am serious about this challenge but also that I have the support and encouragement of many behind me.
Check out the ways you can show your support after the video..

It’s only with your help that I will have the chance to become a Mamavation Mom. Please show your support of me by either tweeting the following:

Hey @bookieboo! I want @MadHatterMom to be the next #Mamavation Mom. She has my support! http://bit.ly/aorv3Y

Or visit the Mamavation Facebook Fan Page and leave a post on the wall telling her that I have your support.

Thank you all so much in advance. Living a healthier and more active life is a goal of mine for 2011. With your support and encouragement I know it will happen!
