I woke up this morning with a plan. A plan to stop losing my identity and take control of what I can, and accept what I cannot. .
Bringing children into the world changes ones life dramatically. Very few are there moments for “you” time. I’m now a mother and that role doesn’t stop when the selfish side creeps in. .
I miss my workouts, the time to focus more on my nutrition, but I chose this new life. I chose motherhood and I chose to begin a new career. I love it all, but sometimes I find myself somber at what I’ve “lost,” my identity. .
I woke up and finally weighed myself and decided eating frozen crust less peanut butter and jellies, goldfish, and snacking on sugar had to stop. It seems that my body stays the same weight whether I workout and eat right, or don’t workout and eat whatever - my weight does not change. .
Which inevitably means I’m eating the same calories, whether good or bad. So, today I’m going to face the person I’ve fallen into and change that person to who I miss. I miss my workouts, my focus on health. .
Today’s a new day, a day to regain what I’m holding onto before it slips away. A day to remember I’m more than just a Mom or a School Teacher. I’m an athlete, a fitness guru, and this part of me I love and hold onto strongly. .
Today I remember my greatest passion - my love for health & fitness. .
Happy Tuesday y’all! ♥️
