Mamavation Bootcamp Vlog

In only about 18months I’ve put on over 100lbs.  I tip the scales at 249lbs and I’m 5’1″.  I’m obese because I parked my butt in front of the computer and haven’t been working much on our farm, gardening or playing with the kids.     In November, I joined Mamavation’s #2WeekChallenge where I lost almost 3lbs.  I’m continuing that connection with others too and I’m hoping to be chosen as a member of the Detox and Weightloss Bootcamp and I could use your help.  

I need you to hop over to my video on facebook, like it and comment on my video.  Be sure to tag Mamavation in the comment and say something like…”Honey’s totes McGoats amazeballs Mamavation!  She’d rock this bootcamp!”  or something especially awesome and inspiring. 😉

I’m making time for my family by making time for me

I know there are tons of other women out there like me.  We ignore ourselves because who has the time?  Well..who has the time for physical therapy because you’ve had a stroke or a heart attack?  I don’t.  So this year I’m making time for my family by making time for me and I hope you’ll join too.  Please, take a moment and comment on Facebook or Twitter and let Mamavation know I’ve support.  

I could use your best tips and advice too.  I’ve over 100lbs to loose and I know it’d be easier with your support.  Wanna come join me?  The next #2weekChallenge with Mamavation starts January 13th.


About Honey Rowland

Organic since it was a dirty hippie word is an easy way to understand me. With 3 kiddos (7, 14, and 16) and one bearded hubby I raise chickens, ducks, turkeys, goats, rabbits and Great Pyrenees livestock guardians on our organically ran mini farm in Ohio. A bull calf and heritage breed pigs have recently been added, along with an impending move into our less than 600 sq ft tiny home that's more and more off grid with each solar panel we buy.

Homeschooling, green living, self-sufficiency and natural parenting (but with yelling) is the norm here. Any skipping through the tulips tends to end with a face plant in chicken or duck poo but being a "glass half full" kind of gal I can smile 'cause the poo is organic and non-gmo!

  1. I totally understand how easy it is to put on weight. I am a crocheter and spend most of my day sitting on my butt. Definitely need to get moving too. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Have you seen the little peddlers that look like a bike was cut off? I started out with it but it was so hard to type at the desk as it didn’t really fit beneath it and my knees were constantly being hit. But, if you’re sitting on the couch…fine! You could use that while crocheting and voila! you can have your cake and eat it too! 😉


  2. I’m cheerin’ you on girl! Hey! How about a challenge?!?!? Lets lose 21 lbs by the time we go to the 2:1 conference!! Yes??? Oh, I knew you would love that idea! Are you on the MyFitnessPal app?? Surely your social media loving self is tapped into that resource!! Follow me so I can find you and we can be partying a bit skinnier 🙂 BTW this is the easiest and most fun #100bb comment I have made. {{hugs}}

    • Oh…YOU’RE ON!! How ’bout we up the anty?…Whoever looses the most has first dibs on snacks on the drive up and back! 😉 As to skinnier…shoot…I just want to get my butt off my shins. Apparently at 36 your butt just melts down your legs. So not a pretty site. 😉 I firmly believe it’s due to sitting on it for work so much! 😉

      And…you KNOW I’m on Fitness Pal. I’ll admit to being lazy about adding meals as something’s up and it keeps making me relog everytime I add something. 😉 I’ve added breakfast today and I’m looking for you!

      If anyone else is on I’m HoneyRowland on FitnessPal so say hi!!


  3. Definitely guilty of not giving myself any “me time” around here! I think my workouts this winter have mostly included pulling kids around in sleds; I haven’t even made it to yoga at the library like I had hoped.
    As a mom it is so easy to be involved in everyone else’s needs. Wishing you the best on your goal!

    • Thanks Christina! I really appreciate the encouragement! I saw we plan a local gal get together and head to Mexico for warm sandy beaches. Ahhhh…and without kids of course! 😉 ~Honey

  4. Found you via BYB! I so know what it’s like to always come last…I need to get motivated to take care of me!

    Good luck on your journey!

    • Thanks Imp for the well wishes! 🙂 I wish you luck as you’re working on the care of you too!! 🙂


  5. Hey Honey,

    What a great post. I will gladly hop on over to facebook and give you a hashtag!

    I have a similar post today (somewhat similar anyway). I haven’t parked my butt in front of a computer, and I have been working out – but I have still gained weight. For me, it’s the stress and disappointments of life, you know? I’m totally an emotional eater. If you feel like it, I have started on a journey – a bit different than yours – but it’s still a journey.

    Thank you so much for being such a fantastic co-hostess. I think it’s hard for us moms, you know. To be doing so much – there is no time for ourselves. Well, it’s time to make the time!

    Good for you!

  6. It’s great that you are trying to get fit! I really agree with what you say about needing to make time for yourself because the consequence of not doing so could be much worse! I’m starting to get back into working out myself and it’s been quite a challenge to work it into my schedule, but it’s definitely worth it.

    Good luck on your journey!

    • Thanks Yuliya! I’m working hard on it and I think of how the airlines say in case of an emergency put your own mask on first so you can then help those you love. I’m putting my own mask on first so I can help the one’s I love. 🙂
