Let’s shift the narrative of motherhood. Find the wins everyday, everyway.
Today, I was able to invest 30-minutes into my fitness and wellbeing. I took my mom’s bike out for a spin. Wow! Do you know how many years it took to get here??? Many! ?
I remember one year – the year I moved to the Bronx – I could only dream of going to my weekly yoga class. I still had all of baby #2 weight on my body and wasn’t feeling great about it. Literally, I would just dream about working out.
As a person who used to workout all the time, having less time to do so, was a bit sad for me. Plus, working out was good for my body AND mind! But my life was R E A L: If I wasn’t working, I was watching the kids. I didn’t have relief. Thus, I didn’t have my normal healthy outlet for day-to-day stress. And that was no bueno!
If you are in a season where things aren’t how you want them, just hang in there. The season will pass. I promise! And just remember, you are here because you can get through it. It’s molding you into a better person and mom.
If I had a clue that life would shift so much (for the good) after my hardest 7 years, I wouldn’t have stressed so much. But when you’re in it, it feels like forever, right? Just breathe, meditate and remember now, is just now, not forever. Affirm to yourself: I GOT THIS!
Thank you for seasons! Now, I can fit in a walk during the workday and today I biked over 7 miles in 30 minutes. Sure, I would love to workout for an hour a day still…but I’m working with what I have to get what I want. Right? You can too!
Oh!!! And I just weighed in and I’m 2.5 pounds from my goal weight!!! Not that I’m obsessed with the pounds, but as a former athlete, I need data. So, I am using pounds so I can monitor my progress.
What we focus on influences how we feel and our lives. ❤️ Sending you love and light!
