Finding begins

Saturday, June 03, 2017

There have been so many things going on in my life. My baby is graduating in just a couple weeks and it has really put me in a tail spin. I am excited and happy for her, but until this week I didn't understand the depression it has put me in. Due to this I have been eating has been insane and workouts to an almost zero level.

Talking with my BFF I realized what I was doing, and while I'm still sad...I have put my foot down. I cannot continue to let myself keep living this seesaw lifestyle. I have to make the commitment and prove to myself that I CAN do it! So here I am, back on the ride and taking it day by day.

Thursday marked 6 months to the day until my Birthday. I will be 40 this year, and while I know that I am just a baby in many eyes, it was also my starting goal to hit that age and be in great shape. With that being said, today marks day 3 of getting workouts in and my second day of getting in 10,000 steps or more! I started T25 yesterday and even though I'm only on day 2, I can really see how great and easy this program will be to fit into my day. Especially at the middle of this month when I have two weeks off!

I feel like I am at a turning point in my life, like I get to discover who I am. I married so young and had my girl so young that I almost feel like I lost a bit of myself in the last few years. Now that my girl is graduating, it is like I get to discover me again. I want to take the next 6 months until my birthday and fall back in love with every bit of ME. From the inside out! I know that along with my workouts I also need to focus on personal development. Hence the importance of me coming here and getting out some thoughts and feelings...I can get my SPARK back!

So here I am, back at the start of my journey, back at the start of it all. But as my BFF keeps telling me this is OUR year and even if we are half way through....we WILL finish strong!

    It is scary. If we don't need to be our kids' moms anymore, then who are we? LOL You really put it into perspective when you talk about finding us again.

    We will do this. And, I'm so glad we get to do this TOGETHER.

    p.s. I love that on your T25 it says "nailed it" or "barely made it" hahahahahahahaha
