Make some choices

Happy Monday, all!  It’s a rainy day.  The baby is napping and I’m working from home today.  These are the moments that I love.  It’s supposed to rain all day so I decided the right choice was to hit the treadmill this morning to run.  I’m over making excuses why I can’t run so today is the day I decided to make the choice to run.  Running on the treadmill isn’t my favorite thing but the most important thing is to get those feet moving. The thing we have to remember is our life is made up of our choices.… View Post

Motivation Monday: Know your worth

I know it’s been awhile since I last blogged.  I know it’s been a minute since I sent some motivation your way.  It’s been rough.  I haven’t felt very motivational lately.  I’ve felt like I’ve been the one who needed to be motivated.  I didn’t really know if I should be the one providing you with motivation when I was looking for it myself.  My My postpartum journey has been a process.  There are days I think I have it completely together and then other days when I feel like it’s like poop on the floor.

When they say you can’t

When they say you can’t, I think you can. Please fight back and do what you want to do! I’ve been a little stressed and it’s been reflected on the blog because I’ve been a little busy.  I’ve been busy because they said I couldn’t.  When I got pregnant people told me I wouldn’t work out.  People told me I wouldn’t run.  People told me I couldn’t travel. People told me I wouldn’t do a lot of things. When they said I couldn’t, that lit a fire under my butt. My baby is almost 4 months old and things have… View Post

Progress will come

Progress is moving forward, moving toward achieving a goal.  Progress is always welcome but doesn’t always come easy. There are a few things I am currently working on: Trying to lose my pregnancy weight. Find the balance and time to get my workouts in on a consistent basis. Getting back into running…at the pace I’m more familiar running. There have been times when I’ve felt completely helpless during this time and there have been the moments when I thought I was taking steps backward.  When progress doesn’t show its face, its hard to find the motivation to keep moving forward.… View Post

Do what you can

Happy Monday! Now is the time to do what you can no matter the level or the time behind it. I’m going through a humbling experience right now because my fitness level obviously isn’t the same as what it was 10 months ago. It’s not like I’m starting all over, but I have taken a few steps backward. Before y’all start hitting the comments about how I just had a baby or I should be blessed, I want to shut it down. I know I just had a baby and I am beyond blessed for my baby. That is not… View Post
