Catching up: the anniversaries and baby

I’m barely keeping things together.  Having a new baby is challenging.  It’s not so much the sleep thing that is getting me, it’s the everything else.  Changing of the diapers, feeding and just making sure she’s content are the hard parts for me.  That’s the biggest adjustment in my life. Plus, I’ve been having to do work in the in-between times which is something I didn’t think I would have to do.  But I still have to pay the bills, right?

I am learning that I need to make some time for myself.  There’s a lot of learning going on right now and we’re only 3 weeks in.  Yep, my little one has hit the three-week mark today.  It’s kind of hard to believe that she’s here sometimes…and other times I’m fully aware she is alive and kicking.


I completely missed it but on January 6, 2011, we decided to embark on our weight loss journey.  I’m never really sure if I should talk about the journey on the day we decided to do it or the day I hit my weight loss goal (February 15th).  I can’t believe it’s been that long.  It’s been a crazy six years filled with lots of ups and downs, but all of those things have led me to where I am right now.  Not everything has been perfect but I am happy with where I am right now.  Every day is a challenge but I’m still here fighting the good fight.

I can’t wait to get cleared to work out.  I need my sanity and security back in my life which is something working out has provided me over these years.  It’s just my way to clear my head.  I can honestly say, I’m better off physically, MENTALLY and emotionally than I was all those years ago.  I owe it all to making the healthy choices in my life.

Also, on Monday Willie and celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary.  It was a pretty low-key day due to the newborn in the house.  It was pleasant and non-eventful.

Simply fit board

Willie got me a Simply Fit Board (link).  I watch Shark Tank a lot and I saw it.  I thought it would be something good for me to do around the house while Baby G is napping…or just when I was bored.  I’m not really sure what my workout schedule will look like yet, so anything I can do at home is a plus for me. I know I keep mentioning it, but I can’t wait until I’m able to workout again.

That’s where I am right now; trying to keep my head above water.  I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.  It’s just a learning experience.  Thank you for bearing with me during this time.
