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.
I felt like I had no control over my schedule, since my baby's mood dictated everything we did. Each day by 6 pm, both kids were miserable. And I was miserable. I, just like many other moms with a new baby, felt helpless and needed something to break me out of the new-mom-funk!
