One Step at a Time…

fitness by faith

I feel so blessed to be able to get back into blogging:)  I took a little bit of a break when my first little one arrived since it was quite an adjustment!

For all of you moms out there… I didn’t realize how emotionally difficult this journey would be.  I was excited to become a mom and knew that it would be hard, but it is unlike anything I could have imagined!  It is a different type of love than I ever thought it would be.  It’s amazing to me how God has created this amazing adventure called parenthood!

Since I have been so wrapped up in my son the last 2 months and recovering from birth, I haven’t been working out as much as I used to!  I thought for sure I would be one of those moms who starts back the week after birth, but that wasn’t me.

One reason is my birth didn’t go the way I planned so it was a difficult recovery.  Another reason is he takes up so much time during the day that it is difficult to fit working out into the schedule!  I used to love working out in the morning, but now it is spent taking care of the little one:)

I just have to keep reminding myself (and I wanted to remind you guys as well) that life is always going to make working out and eating healthy difficult.  It doesn’t mean we just give up though.  We need to make the time for the important things in life and being healthy for our loved ones is extremely important.  We just need to take one step at a time to get us back towards our wellness goals:)

We don’t need to be a size 2 pant size or have the perfect hair, but we need to make sure we are using and challenging our bodies the way it was designed to be.

I have committed to at least 30 minutes of working out 4 times a week to start back into it.  For my life that is a very doable goal if I just schedule the time and make it happen!  To start back into a workout routine try a schedule that will be achievable for you so that you can remember the amazing “workout high” you get after it:)  It will make it easier on you!

What is your goal going to be?  Even if it is just getting out for a walk once a day please make sure to schedule it in!  It isn’t as likely to get done if we don’t take the time and actually schedule it into our planners:)

If your goal has been to get into a healthy lifestyle, but you keep getting sidetracked I can help!  Contact me!  I would love to help you with your health goals and be your accountability partner:)
