I am doing something I never, ever thought I would do on this little ol’ blog of mine, I am stepping out of my comfort zone and sharing details of my journey to better health and weight loss. Now, I have no intentions of making this a blog all about products nor am I going to be trying to sell anything to you. I am simply going to share my journey with you. All its ups and downs, all the good and bad, and how I am trying to do it while balancing working mom life.
I have struggled over the last several years to find a place where I am truly happy with the way I look. Since having children I have lost confidence in my own body.
I wasn’t exactly the most body-confident person pre-kids, but it has been harder than anticipated. For some women, they find labor and delivery as a source of strength and through those times they find self-love.
I have always been envious of those women. They are so strong, so beautiful, so ‘put-together’. Even after persevering through two tough births, I struggle to see myself, my body, in a positive light. But it is time that all changes. I need to change.
Now, I would be lying if I said this journey wasn’t about weight, because well, it is. But this isn’t ONLY about weight. It is also about finding self-love.
It is about treating my body with kindness. It is about making my own, personal mental health a priority and not feeling guilty when I need a break or time to myself.
It is about moving and fueling my body in a loving, kind way. I want my 30s to be the healthiest, more holistic decade of my life thus far. Sharing this journey with you will hopefully help me to stay accountable. And perhaps I will find other moms of the tribe out there trying to balance it all.
So here I am. In all my busy, messy bun, mom-of-two-amazing-kids glory. My goals include losing 20-25 pounds and finding a happy, healthy place with food. I plan to share with you my food plans, my workouts, my feelings, my hard days, my good days…the whole, unedited journey. Here’s to making changes and finding healthy.
