Well, this is not exactly about my kids or necessarily being a mommy… BUT it is important to me! I am starting a new chapter in my life and I want every reader to hold me accountable!! I am starting, yet again, to take care of myself!! After my oldest was born, and a few years old.. I got a job in the fitness industry and it became my #1 obsession.. to take care of myself! I would eat better, and exercise, and overall I was so much happier!
After Baby R… I attempted, but I never committed… and I lucked out in the short time span that I did dedicate myself to at least eating a bit better.. but I was never where I wanted to be. I was ten months post partum when we found out we were expecting Baby M…
She turned three months yesterday!! And we know that we are all finished with having children. So you know what – it is time for me again!!! I have committed to a 30-day challenge in order to help me prioritize myself and my life. And I have promised myself that I am going to exercise NO MATTER WHAT at least 5 days a week. And I do it all from home so there’s no fees :).
How does this help me with my life? Well – I have been running out of patience with my ten year old. I am always tired from the babies keeping me from my loving naps, and my full nights of sleep. Baby R has some amazing sleep issues ( we will touch base on that maybe this week!), and in order to be a fully-functioning mommy, I need to do this for myself. I have already discovered so much on only day 5 of my challenge… and I know that I need some balance. Right now it is always about my two little kiddos, and everyone and everything else seems to just fall into place. I need to make some changes!!
I want everyone to really look and understand how important balance is. Better yet, we all know this… but who is actually going to take the initiative and do something to balance it all out! Join me!!! I could use the accountability partners.
My challenge is also going to help me set a schedule to post consistently here on my Blog and do what I have been wanting to do for quite some time now. Just because my blog had a post or two, doesn’t mean it is where it should be. It’s time to make some changes!!
Stay tuned and enjoy the ride!
