The little old blog has been dying a slow death, hasn't it? I can't tell you how many times in the last couple of weeks, I've brought the laptop over to the sofa after putting the littles to bed with the best of intentions...and yet nothing. I've felt the need to unplug quite a bit lately. Two littles at two schools is no joke! I'm not sure how mamas with lots of littles of all different ages at several schools do it - not a clue!
But you see, I've needed to unplug to replug, if that makes sense. This past Summer, when I hurt my back, it was an eye-opening experience for me. A defining moment. Even though I asked the docs and they denied it, I felt that my weight contributed to my back giving out. I made a decision to claim back my health. Not just my weight, but my health...mind, body and spirit.
As many of you can relate I'm sure, I found myself nowhere on my priority list. Not in the middle, not at the bottom - NOWHERE.
I knew right then, I needed to change that. To be a better wife and mother, I needed to put myself back on the list. So when Grace started school on August 12th, I embarked on a journey of my own. Today marks exactly 1 month, and I'm down 19.6 lbs and 3 dress sizes! I have more energy and I haven't had a single headache or backache since - praise the Lord for that!
So I'm back on the list. Not at the top, not at the middle, but also not at the bottom. Progress, not perfection.
Off to spend a girls weekend shopping with some my favorite girls from Sewing Club!
Have a great weekend! I'll be back soon to share more!
