So according to wordpress, I haven’t posted since May 2014! Yes, it has been over one whole year since I have blogged, and I have no idea where one year went! A lot has changed since then. I now have 2 little girlies and a new home. I thought one baby girl was busy, but now with two, it is at a whole other level! What hasn’t changed, is my love for healthy food and fitness. I am now coming out of the fog from a lack of sleep and running off my feet from the moment I open my eyes. Trust me, I still don’t get much sleep and am run off my feet from the moment I wake up, but it’s getting easier to function 🙂
After round two of babies, I still have a passion for all things fitness and healthy eating and want to continue to share it with others. I want everyone to know that this lifestyle is possible whether you have kids or not. Whether you work part-time or 12 hour days. Everyone has a story, an excuse or reason they cant live a healthy lifestyle, but they also have a reason they can. I can vouch that it is possible no matter how horrible your eating habits are now or how little time you have, IT IS POSSIBLE and so so worth it! There is always time for YOU. It might not be at your ideal time, but there is time if you make time.
I am only just a little over 2 months post partum and have begun exercising again. It feels amazing to pick up a barbell again. I am using less than half the weight I was prior to being pregnant but I am wanting to take it slow. I am dealing with diastasis recti again and lifting heavy and doing any sort of ab work will only make it worse, so that means taking it easy for a while (as easy as I can :). My goals have also changed slightly. When I began working out, my number one goal was to look fit, but as I get older, looking fit is a plus of working out. My goal now, is being fit and healthy. I LOVE the way it makes me feel. I stopped weighing myself, and obsessing over the number on the scale, and focused more on how I felt. Actually some of my jeans got tighter and shirts got smaller. Not because I was gaining fat, but because my fat was disappearing and muscle was taking its place! Once I started being happy and love myself, I started to become more confident in other areas of my life and love others more.
10 Week post partum – time to work on gaining muscle 🙂
I want to apologize again for taking so long to post! Thanks to all of my followers who still follow me on Facebook and patiently have stayed subscribed to my blog while I took a year off to spend with my family. I promise I wont make it another year before I blog again! See you soon!
