It's been a really long time since I've been here. It's been a rough year.
Hendrix is now almost 5 months old and I swear, I don't remember any of my other babies being as needy as she is. But, somehow, she's learned to roll both ways and is so close to sitting on her own. Though she doesn't like to sleep on her own or really be left alone too long. She's been a bit spoiled by all of us.
I've struggled in an out of the gym since starting back in October.
I dealt with some incision issues and low milk supply, so I was forced to slow down again just as I was getting started. And it's been rough figuring everything out with the new baby and the older kids needing their school time.
It's tough to find the right time to leave the house, and it's equally as difficult to find the time to workout at home.
But, again, I'm working on it.
I've reset my goals here on Spark, again. I'm going at it slow to begin, because I hope to continue breastfeeding until H is at least a year, but two would be ideal. So, major calorie restriction and too much working out isn't a good idea. Not that it's a good idea anyway... I've giving myself until my 35th birthday (January 2022) to reach my goals and will update and reevaluate often.
I started yoga again this week, following the December calendar from Yoga with Adriene, and it feels amazing. I'm going to see how it works out to hit the gym this month on the husband's days off, but I think I may let my membership go for a little while.
After the first of the year, when we get the back room all cleaned up from Christmas, I'm going to finally set up my pole and order a subscription to online lessons. I'm incredibly excited about that. I've been following some pole fitness ladies and companies on IG for awhile now and it looks so pretty and like so much fun.
I've been struggling, mentally and with some members of my family, but 'tis the season, right!?
So, yes. For now, I am back. I'm not sure how active I'll be here in the coming weeks and months. Like I said, I'm being pulled in a few directions and things often get forgotten, or pushed aside.
