Sometimes life can get away from you. That is what I am discovering and am trying to change. Being away from my life with my four kids for a few days while attending Mom 2.0 Summit is helping me stop, reflect and gain perspective. I am realizing that I am too busy and too disorganized. Whatever routine may have worked a few months ago with myself, Mike, my older kids and our twins is just not fitting us these days. It’s time for a change.
After an exciting and exhausting day yesterday of travel, meeting tons of incredible, strong women and already being inspired about what the future of Nesting Story is going to look like, I am remembering to find that love for my body after babies again.
I woke up this morning very early, (can’t seem to adjust to the time change), and went and worked out as I watched the sunrise. I focused on stretching and some light free-weights as I realized after pulling my back about five times the last fews days, that my goal of being stronger needs more focus.
Another area of life that I am feeling is missing is simple joy. Taking my kids out for a walk. Baking and not being afraid of the calories (just keeping portions in check). Cooking delicious but simple and manageable meals.
I am so excited to be in this new stage in my life. To be in charge of my own body, (something I sometimes forget), and start sculpting my post baby body, not only to fit into the clothes I want it to fit into, but to be able to do the things I used to do. I want to participate in life again, but this time it will be with a new found appreciation.
