On a journey

Hello, I'm a 36 year old mother of 3 wonderful children.

Somehow, over the years, like many of us, I let the routine, the kids, the bf, etc... get to me. No more time for me. I ended up completely losing myself and my self esteem!!!

Now, I feel like I have to get back on track, gain control of my life back, find out who I am now and even what I like. I'm on a journey to find myself and I'm starting with my outer self and it seems to do wonders on my inner self, ...
Hello, I'm a 36 year old mother of 3 wonderful children.

Somehow, over the years, like many of us, I let the routine, the kids, the bf, etc... get to me. No more time for me. I ended up completely losing myself and my self esteem!!!

Now, I feel like I have to get back on track, gain control of my life back, find out who I am now and even what I like. I'm on a journey to find myself and I'm starting with my outer self and it seems to do wonders on my inner self, especially my self esteem. Exercising has made a huge difference!!! And I've only started a couple of weeks ago. I have been on SP for years, done it once, worked well, but fell back into my old habits. I wasn't determined enough to permanently change. Now I am. And I need to change more than just my outer self. I need to change a lot of things in my life, and some things will be harder than changing my diet and exercise habits. I realized one thing :

I HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OVER WHAT I EAT AND HOW I STAY FIT!!!

They are so many things I lost control of that realizing that this is something I can easily control is amazing!!! OK, so you'll say I should've thought of that before, but somehow, I always thought that the kids or bf wouldn't want to eat more healthy, or that I don't have time to exercise. Well you know what? The kids don't have a choice about what I make, the bf can make himself something else if he's not happy ( but actually he is, and I do try to find something everybody might like, there are so many recipes on sparkrecipes!), and I MAKE time to exercise.

Today, my energy level is way up!!! My self esteem is still a work in progress (and will be for a while, I think!) but getting fit is definitely a step in the right direction!!!

Sometimes, I'm a bit scared cause I have no idea where this journey is going to take me, but I just can't stay where I'm at right now. So let's hit the road!!!
