It is still weird to say that I’m a mom. I have moments where I just look at Papa and I’m like …. you came from me little man. I immediately smile and my heart warms up. Life as mom is crazy. Once I think I have it all together then BAM … toddler hood comes at me full force lol.
I wouldn’t trade it for anything though.
Blessed. I am incredibly blessed and thankful for a healthy, thriving, ball of fire 18 month old! You are literally my sunshine, I don’t know how I would get through life without you. I wish time would slow down, because unlike last time … I feel as though time is rushing past me. It’s like I have plans on what I’m going to do, but the day just passes on like nobody’s business. My Papa’s personality is out of this world and I am so excited to share his development with you guys thus far.
These past two and half weeks have been an absolute roller coaster! I have had many ups and downs, mainly downs. If you follow me on Instagram then you know I made it public that I was just not in a good space whatsoever. And that exact date was February 8, 2020 and today is February 24, 2020 … I AM JUST NOW GETTING IT TOGETHER. Why in the heck did it take me 17 days to feel some type of good again?
January literally was amazing to me, so I don’t get how February comes and ruins it all. Maybe, I lost focus? I have just been exhausted to be 100% transparent with you guys. I mean, there are just so many roles that I am trying to excel in. Especially being a woman, I feel like we wear so many hats — wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, coworker, etc. — I’m telling you this list can go on, which is bonkers!!!!
Am I the only one who this happens to?
Well I refuse to end the month off like this, so I took the time during the beginning of last week to find the things that are limiting me, and trust me I’m still finding those things out. I’m in a much better head space and have done a couple of things to start my day off on a positive note. And I’m going to share those with you.
Fourth time successfully completing the Whole30 and this time around it wasn’t bad whatsoever. I am so sorry that I did not do weekly updates, but life got hectic, and honestly, there was no time for me to sit down and write everything out for you guys weekly.
If you haven’t read my latest blog post on why life has been super hectic, you’ll definitely want to take a peep … Stuck in a hard space.
Where do I even start!?
These past few weeks have been kind of a roller coaster for me and things are finally starting to slow down. Let me give you quick insight on the past month. In addition to working full time, I was also working part time at Class Studios. Why pick up a part time? It was my way of getting my foot in the door into the fitness industry, because at the end of the day … it is my passion and what I want to build my career in.
Ladies and gentlemen, week 1 has already been completed. I work full time and I’m a mom, so week 1 break down was a no go. Just know that I did gain some weight back and as of January 11, 2020 I weighed in at 198 lbs. I will also make sure to post weekly updates on how everything went for week 2. Take a look at my measurements.
First things first, if you have no idea what the Whole30 is, no worries! I got you covered! Check out Hello WHOLE30, where I give you a quick break down of what you need to know.
Remember two months ago when I said Goodbye Whole30, Well I’m back at it again. I decided to do it again because quite honestly, since the beginning of December, I would work out like four to five times a week, but I was eating horribly. I mean like really bad, and my body just felt off in general.
I needed a restart, so why not dial in on my nutrition? I am also partaking in the gymshark66 challenge and one of my goals was to eat clean.
Happy 2020 my loves!
Feels a little weird saying/writing 2020, doesn’t it?
A couple of weeks ago I reflected on my 2019 goals (Ciao 2019|A YEAR IN REVIEW) and also set goals for 2020 (2019|It’s been real, bring on 2020). 2019 was definitely a year where I kind of got to find myself all over again, especially with being a new mom and trying to adjust to my new normal.
I will admit that I had more bad times than good and that’s totally okay, because the things that I went through taught me to hold my head high and go after what the f*** I want … screw what everyone else thinks. I won’t go into details, but just know I’ve had enough and am making some decisions to just make sure things go my way this year.
I definitely reach some goals last year and made some head way, but I want 2020 to really be my year. I don’t want to just say it, but I actually want to take action. So here I am, picking 5 goals out of my list of what 14 that I had to make sure I really hone in on them. Here we go, again ...
