The Road to a Lighter, Leaner Me

Fitness. The mere thought of the word makes me tired. Unless you are a fitness buff, odds are you don't enjoy working out. Remember that thing I said I didn't want to do but desperately needed? Yeah, it's called working out. I'm not big on New Year Resolutions, but I was determined this year to begin an exercise program. I'm tired of being over weight and feeling uncomfortable in everything I wear. With that being said, I was headed towards the end of January without an ounce of motavation to exercise. It's so easy to find an excuse to not start, but this week my 5 year old son told me we had to exercise. He thinks exercising is fun, well only because he jumps around, takes a water break, comes back, then takes a bathroom break, and then comes back again. On Tuesday, I began Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. It is tough, let me tell you, it's a 20 minute routine that has you working every muscle in your body. It's hard to get an out of shap

Let the project begin

What does being a mom mean to you? For me, being a mom means the world, but sometimes I feel like I lose myself in it. I decided to begin a mommy project as a journey of self discovery. It's about discovering talents that I did not know I had. It's about trying new things. About doing things I never had that chance to do. Things that I love and even those that I don't care for, but know that I desperately need. After becoming a mom, I felt that I had giving up so much to stay home with my children, even though it was a decision I felt strongly about. It's been five years and I've realized that instead of dwelling on the negatives or the what ifs, I need to accept my life just as it is. This is another chapter of my life and it's up to me to discover what's in store. This is a project of becoming a new and better me.
