“I thought about giving up, but then I noticed who was watching.”
I had a health scare a few months ago. I have inherited blood clotting disorders that make me high risk for blood clots, heart attack, and stroke. As I was laying in the ER bed, thinking I was having a heart attack, I knew I needed to change something in my life. My husband commutes and works extremely long hours, I had a 1 & 2 year old, and I was exhausted both mentally and physically. I was eating poorly and I put all my needs on the back burner. I was giving everything I possibly had to my kids, husband, dog, house, job, etc. I had nothing left. Mom guilt was running rampant through my veins. It was saying I would be selfish if I did anything for myself. It was saying I would be a bad mom if I did anything I did before I had babies. No one put this incredible weight on my shoulders except for myself. I decided I needed to to ACTION. I stopped making excuses and changed my mindset. Instead of “I can’t take care of myself because I’m a mom” it is now… “I NEED to take care of myself because of my family”. I want to live a long healthy life for my kids and husband. I want to be an example of a confident, strong, and positive woman for my kids. The only way I could do these things was to lead by example. This didn’t happen over night, it was a long process with a definite learning curve. The amount of benefits I received from taking my health into my own hands is INSANE. I have more energy and I am even happier. On top of that, the extra baby weight fell off and I healed my diastasic recti. I didn’t start this journey to change the way I look, while that is a fun bonus, I did it to change the way I FELT. Surprisingly, this health scare was the best thing for me AND my family. I feel I am able to be more present with them when I have some sort of outlet (fitness). This change of mindset has changed my life and I want everyone to feel the way I do RIGHT NOW… I WANT TO HELP YOU!
