Sometimes I just need a reminder!
I’m going to talk about a subject that many won’t even bring up for fear of being called insensitive or ungrateful. Believe me, I’m neither of those.
Growing a baby is a miraculous thing and I would do it 10 more times in a heart beat! There’s no doubt about it but it’s also pretty darn hard on the body and when you’ve spent several years working on staying healthy and remaining in the best shape of your life, it’s hard to swallow the changes you see so quickly in such a short period of time.
I’m not any less healthy nor am I any less fit than I was 16 weeks ago but my body is changing and mentally it’s hard for me. When I got pregnant with the girls, I wasn’t even working out. Heck, I wasn’t even a runner back then so seeing the changes didn’t even phase me.
Now is a different story. I’ve spent the last 4 years redefining, shaping, molding my body over and over again to help inspire others to take their fitness and health into their own hands and to DO SOMETHING about it. What has been so hard now is that I feel like I’ve lost that part of me during this transition. I’m learning to work through it and it may take the next 5 months to figure it all out but I’m learning that it’s just part of the process. I’m embracing each day as it comes.
My hope is that my WORDS and my ACTIONS speak louder than any transformation picture can show you because the only transformation you’ll be seeing from me over the next 5 months is one of acceptance, love and growth. I will learn from this experience and I will share it openly and honestly with all of you… always.
