Once I became a Mom taking care of myself definitely took a back seat to my new responsibilities. It just didn’t seem as important as taking care of tiny humans. What I didn’t realize was failing to take care of my health would catch up to me and . Or the amount of work it would take to get myself back on track.
In February 2017 I decided enough was enough and I couldn’t possibly continue to take care of everyone else while ignoring myself. I rejoined Weight Watchers started walking/running, practicing yoga, and eliminated Diet Coke.
As a WAHM of 2 littles it’s a daily struggle to balance my time and find the desire to exercise and eat right. Not every day is successful and for every 10 steps forward there are usually a few steps back. I’ve had to learn better multitasking skills, how to say no more, and what things can actually wait. This space is a place to reflect on my journey for myself and others struggling with the same challenges.
