Fast forward a few years. Baby #1 arrived in 2012 – cue post-partum depression but, I did the hard work and managed to get back in shape about 13 months later. Then Baby #2 arrives in 2014, cue baby blues. I managed to get back into shape in about 16 months. Cue baby #3 in 2017 and post-partum anxiety. I am currently juggling life with three small children and I’m having a very challenging time getting back in shape. It’s 19 months since he was born as I write this and I’m just now able to start focusing on getting back to exercise. But I’m doing it now. Results are very slow coming, but I’m just going to have to keep on plugging until I get where I want to be.
So, I’ve been on a massive roller coaster with my health, fitness and relationship with my body. I’ve been many shapes and sizes. I’ve tried too many unhealthy ideas, fads and products trying to find the secret to results. I’ve allowed my insecurities to seriously affect my life in an unhealthy way. But, you know what? I have never given up on working toward something better. I’ve worked so hard you guys. I’ve taken the classes, read the books, listened to the podcasts. I’ve seen the therapists and cried with friends. I’ve journaled and I’ve prayed, I’ve failed many times but I’ve come back and triumphed. I’ve done it and so can you. Just don’t give up! Keep searching, growing, evolving and transforming. If you need a hand to hold and someone to guide you I’m here for you lady. That’s why I do this for a living. YOU are the whole reason for this website.
