Self care

As part of my resolution to do more for myself to help me be happier and not feel so bogged down with being a full time stay at home mom, I decided to start doing a strength and conditioning class at my sister’s gym that she owns. I have always enjoyed working out. I Rand long distance in high school for the track team and ran cross country in college. I enjoy being healthy and it’s wonderful to have the ability to workout and put that kind of healthy stress on my body.

Having 3 kids has made it hard for me to workout since my youngest is 9 months old so she still depends greatly on me. I love being a mother, but I have been told multiple times that I should also make time for myself. If I feel good then I can be a better mom.

Today was day 2 of working out and my body is very sore. It’s the good kind of sore that makes you happy to know you did more than sit on your butt all day cleaning up spit up, poop, pee, and toys. I’ve definitely noticed that since I started my blog and started following my resolutions I have felt more relaxed, less stressed, and overall happier. I still have bad days where I don’t want to get out of bed, but my good days are so good.

On top of working out, I started writing again which is something I have not done in 5 and a half years since I gave birth to my oldest son. I hope to find the confidence to share some of my writing with you all to get feedback good and bad. I hope everyone is having a splendid time with their resolutions and have a wonderful weekend!
