Tap…tap…tap…Is this thing on? Yes, it is me, the long Mamavation Mom that went silent for way too long. It seems that life caught up with me, grabbed me and tried pulling me down. But as many of you know I always get back up. But it seems that I haven’t been walking/jogging as much as I was there for the longest time and while I am still eating well I’m not doing it how I was. So I’m still bouncing around between 195-197. To me this is horrible, yes I began this journey at 225 and have stayed off of 200+ but this was NOT my desired goal for September. I had hoped that by the end of September I would have lost 55lbs total. Not even close. I am proud that I haven’t jumped back to the bad beverages or foods and kept losing inches though.
I wanted to stop everyone reading right now and tell you….never get discouraged. If you fall behind your desired goal remember tomorrow starts a new day. I’ve been under tremendous stress and normally will watch out for the health of others before myself. I think many of us moms tend to do that. So I’m here to tell you all to LAY OFF YOURSELF and take care of YOURSELF too. It took a very good friend to tell me today that I need to take care of myself and do some stuff for myself for a change. I think they were right. There are just too many times a mom will forget she is a person, that she is a woman and not just a wife or a mother. She can really look good and every once in a while can have fun.
I had a blast when I did the Warrior Dash, so much that I want to do more races. To me that was fun! Even if it meant taking a few risks and getting muddy. In the meantime I’m going to wade around in my life and keep my head above water. I’ll continue to watch what I eat and try thinking of ways to exercise. I can’t promise anything more right now.
