I have for some reason been dreading this post. I am not sure why. Well actually I know why; I haven’t been feeling that great about where I am in my fitness journey since have McKenzie and McKayla. I think one of the hardest things for me is that I was the healthiest and most fit I had ever been right before becoming pregnant. Anyway, I am determined to get back to where I was; actually I am determined to go beyond where I was. This is my year for becoming the best I can be. I want to push myself to the fullest. I am excited to be on this new journey.
Mind: To be honest I am not sure where my mind is at these days. These past six months have been a blur. I am an emotional rollercoaster for the most part; I am sure it has to do with lack of sleep and being a mom to four daughters under 5. All-in-all being a mom to twins is something I can’t even begin to explain. It is exhausting and exhilarating. It is wonderful and maddening. It is frustrating and amazing. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Body: This is where I am not so sure what to say. I would love to be able to honestly say I am totally okay with my body and where it is at because I know I gave birth to four beautiful daughters, but I can’t that would be a lie. I am not feeling good about myself these days, I am not okay with where I am at physically. I am starting to doubt myself, I am starting to wonder can I really come back after being pregnant with twins. I mean I knew how to get my body back my two single births, but twins this is a new adventure. But after I get done having my pity party I tell myself I can do it. I just need to get back into my fitness routine. I have to stop feeling sorry for myself and go for it. Which is exactly what I have started to do. I am back at it and I have been for about a week now. Tomorrow I am going to fill you in on my workouts for the week. I am loving them.
