Hi everyone! I hope your holidays were happy and that you are looking forward to a wonderful 2013. I sure am.
I'm not going to lie. The last part of 2012 (going back to work full-time) was a huge adjustment for me, and I struggled to make time for myself. That needs to change. We were also really sick for most of the season. Tomorrow we take Keira to the ear nose and throat doctor to talk about getting tubes to help with her ears. I can't wait to finally have a solution.
Becoming a mom for the first time is a wonderful thing and I love my family, but for someone who has always been independent and as an only child accustomed to "alone time" it can be difficult at times. It's also hard when you don't have support of from your parents. I need to accept that and stop being resentful.
So I just wanted to say hi to everyone and make a commitment to myself again and getting back in shape and learning how to love myself more. I have been falling victim to a lot of negative self-talk lately. I'm happy that I haven't gained any weight since my whirlwind autumn, but I still need to lose 50 lbs to get back to where I was in 2010.
