Marissa's Original Feature
Marissa from Let's Move It Mommas is still going strong all these years later. After losing over 90 pounds, she even kicked it up a notch by running several half marathon's and starting her own group fitness class for local Texas women. Yep, Monday through Thursday's you can be a part of Move It Mommas for only $10 a week. She is SO inspiring I can hardly take it. Reading her blog always reminds me of how helpful blogging and Instagram is for keeping me accountable. I just love how passionate she is about helping others discover a healthy lifestyle, including her own husband.
Erin's Original Feature
Here's one of my personal faves...a total hero. Erin Henderson who not only lost over 75 pounds since 2009 and kept it off, but also runs 80-100 miles per week, is sponsored by Oiselle and Generation UCAN, has become an RRCA certified running coach, and has 12 children 9 of which are adopted and the youngest being sever special needs. I can't even wrap my brain around her. Go to her blog and check it out for yourself. She's a little muscle who never stops running (most of her runs being at four or five a.m.), no excuses! Oh, and she continues to strive to qualify for the Olympic Marathon Trials. I have no doubt she'll get there. You can find Erin over at See Mom Run Far.
I hope you'll check out their blogs and get your fill of inspiration and motivation....I know I did. Click here to view the entire Motivate Me Monday series.
