By the end of MOLO, I was 24 weeks pregnant and felt better than I had in a long time. For the first time in my life, I actually enjoy working out and am physically stronger than I have ever been. It is important to me to keep up with my progress and to teach my family the importance of not just physical health, but mental health as well.
I pushed myself harder than I ever have before and realized how strong I am. My attitude changed and my body started to change as well. I made my wellness a priority. I learned to fuel my body AND my spirit. Slowly, I became the person who could encourage others...THAT has been a powerful aha moment for me.
This wasn’t just a fitness challenge for me, it was a lifestyle challenge. I needed the motivation to find my routine and figure out how to survive what felt impossible some days. I needed to be reminded of how to meal plan and food prep. But I also needed to remember what it felt like to feel good from a healthy home cooked meal and a great workout! I’ve known for years how much I love this amazing tribe of women, but this is the first year I have realized how much I really needed them.
As I focus on the year ahead and how I can do the best by my babies, I want to accomplish so many things with them. But at the end of the day, listening to their stories & showing them how to be a good person is what really counts.
