38 this year, Mom of 3, undergoing treatment for early menopause, battled post-partum depression, had to cancel her gym membership and stop seeing her personal trainer. .
You’d think to see someone different but I didn’t, haven’t, and will not give up on myself. .
From progressing to regressing to working from scratch all over again, I’m staying patient, trusting the process and not giving up on my goals. .
I’ve never been a quitter so I’m not quitting now.
Dude, it’s so much harder now with age, being married, chasing after a one year old demanding ALL my attention, and battling health issues but I can choose to make them excuses or I can make them just an extra challenge and I love a challenge! .
So here I am, working out from home, making better food choices, drinking my water in between laundry, scrubbing mustard off the couch that my baby decided to finger paint with, meal prepping, trying to sleep when I can, playing the mom and dad role when my hubs job keeps him away for days, cleaning, getting Miya to and from school etc etc etc! .
I do me. Point blank. Because if I don’t take care of myself, no one else will. I make myself a priority. I will not quit on myself. I will not make excuses. I will make shit happen because as long as I am breathing, I matter. .
It’s been quite the journey and there is still so much ahead to overcome but I’m grabbing the bull by the horns and braving the unknown- facing tomorrow with a smile and a “bring it!” mindset! - 3 hours ago
