I actually felt somewhat depressed and my anxiety was through the roof for a few months. I would get up, take them all to school, come home, clean, watch Heartland (I was obsessed for a while), cook supper, pick up kids, bath time, homework, then go to bed! Wake up next day and REPEAT!
During that time I gained about 15lbs too! Not good. Doesn't make you feel any better......only worse!
During this time any time I went to Kingsville, a town 20 minutes from where we live now, I would drive by a certain gym and watch them workout! It looked SO HARD! And it is! Finally after texting with the owner for a few weeks I finally got the nerve to go in!
That day, as I read someone else say about the gym I go to, was a game changer for me! It really was! I have never worked out this hard in my life. I have never been so excited about what's to come with myself, my health and my body in a really long time!
My trainer is great! He's tough but encouraging. He has faith in me when I don't and he pushes me to do my best which is always more than I think I can!
If I could bottle up and sell that feeling you get after a really good workout I would be a rich lady!
Today I had to bring my three youngest ones with me and I was watching them play and thought to myself that I hope they never struggle with their weight like I do and I am going to make sure that they don't! I want fitness, health and working out to be a part of their lives from this day forward! They will be happier and healthier for it!
During these eight weeks I have not had an anxiety attack and have felt happier than I have in a really long time! I look forward to each morning so that I am the best mom I can be to my FIVE kids that I have!!!!!
I am blessed! They are all my biggest fans!!!
