Reflecting back on the last 30 days has me a little emotional. I made a promise to myself. A promise to work on my health and fitness. I've been working hard, staying focused, forgiving of myself for past mistakes, and looking forward to how I deserve to live my life. Now, some might scoff at just a month but this is the first time in a VERY long time in which I made myself a promise and kept it. I am worth keeping that promise. That means I'm on the road to trusting myself again and knowing that I deserve better than what I've been giving myself.
Mothers are inherently selfless to some extent. That sort of comes with the territory. So when I had to turn the focus slightly away from my family and onto myself to give me the best chance of sticking to my fitness and meal plan, I allowed myself that without guilt. That has been a huge step for me. My family hasn't suffered during this time, instead my kids learned that nutrition and exercise are a priority. I think that's an amazing lesson to teach my two little girls.
. . . . . . .
I hope you chose to do something for yourself. You are worth it and you deserve it.
