Welcome to my crazy journey. I am a christian, a wife, a mother, an employee, and so many other things and I happen to be on mission to be the best possible version of myself. My goal started out purely physical, but after a major life change I decided that my mental health and happiness are just as important, so here we are. I intended to start this blog right after I was released to exercise again (I guess I forgot how C-section recovery works). If I am being completely honest, I actually intended to start this blog years ago…like 10. Don’t get me wrong, I have written SEVERAL blog posts, they have just never seen the light of your iphone screen. This is mostly because I am a big chicken who deep down cares what everyone thinks. This time will be different though..right?
To catch you up on my last unpublished blog I will give you a quick summary. I was concerned that I never do anything for myself besides shower and maybe sneak in a workout a couple of times a week. This prompted me to challenge myself to keep all of the promises that I make to me for 21 days. Easy, right? Wrong. I did great for about 3 days and honestly, I felt like a new woman. One healthy decision lead to several others and it just clicked. This is how Pinterest Mom’s do it! I have cracked the code. They just do the things, and do more of the things, and more and more and more. Well I got really sleepy on about day 3 and that was that. You see, one of the “things” that I promised myself that I would do was to publish that blog and we all know how that turned out. This really got me thinking, is this how I want my children to be? If this is the example that I am setting they will surely follow, I have to do better. So, here we are, back at day 1 with a fresh start and a good idea of what is realistically possible to fit into a single day. Balance seems to be key here.
I would like to say that I am going to take this blog and make it all about fitness and weight loss, however that is such a small portion of my life.I decided that, for me, to keep my own attention, I need to write about whatever is going on that week. What is worrying me, exciting me, happening to me…I just realized how self centered that sounds. While this does sound selfish, and it is, we all go through very similar situations and sometimes it’s nice to know that you are not alone. If the craziness in my life can help someone else stay a little more sane it is all worth putting myself out there. Plus I went vegan and you all know how much vegans love to talk about being vegan. Am I right or am I right?
