A Journey to Fit

Welcome Back! If you’ve come back to check for another post, thank you. If this is your first time, I highly recommend reading my first post, I may make a little more sense.

Before I begin, I love that WordPress has a delay option. I can write a post and set it to be released at a later date. This is great for me as I’m often inspired in spurts and not continuously. I also seem to have time to write in spurts, not continuously…surprise surprise.

Anyway…A Journey to Fit

This is going to be a hard post for me. I’m putting out there how unfit I currently am. My hope is that by posting where I’m starting and where I’m going I will feel bound to the goal by you all. Being bound to myself hasn’t been enough in the past so hopefully you all can help me. I will also promise you all that this will not turn into a health and fitness blog, I’ll just keep you up to date with how I’m doing.

April 1st, the start of my journey. About 8yrs ago I was weighing in just under 130lbs and was wearing a size 4. Since then, I’ve had 3 kids and that hasn’t been too nice to me and I haven’t been too nice to myself. When I weighed in I was 173.6lbs. Yes…I have gained 43.6lbs and it doesn’t look good on me. I wear a size 10/12 depending on the fit. I have learned that it is not the number on the scale I should be chasing, but the inches, and more importantly how comfortable I am in my skin. It’s also important that the numbers don’t consume me. For that reason I will only step on a scale and measure myself on the first day of every month, that is also when I will catch you all up on my progress.

So April 1st: 173.6lbs, 38in waist, 43in booty, 14in arm, 26in thigh.

Goal: To feel healthy

Any tips or tricks or words of encouragement you all may have I welcome them.

Until the next spurt of time and inspiration…

-S

  1. A letter to my daughter, by the numbers…..

    My beautiful daughter… you are such an amazing woman…. I thought I would run some amazing numbers by you which highlight for me, your mom, all that you are….
    You worked for 3 years in high school, nearly 320 days, waiting on tables, making people happy, serving them and learning how the value of hard work
    You went to a military academy, worked hard, struggled to make good grades, learned leadership, mentoring, and how to be an officer so that you could support others, for 1438 days…..

    You have now given birth to 3 beautiful children, growing within you for 27 months, managing morning sickness, fatigue, sleepless nights, all the while surrounding them with love, safety and amazing support…..

    I am certain that you are on the path to now care for Sam, the beautiful mom and wife that you are, by eating well, sleeping when you can, enjoying being outside and feeling the sun on your face while enjoying the energy exercise such as walking and moving gives you.

    You are amazing and such a powerful woman…. seize you incredibleness…. Make yourself the mom, wife and woman YOU want to be.

    I love you…. you inspire me every day;)

  2. One thing that has helped me is the app streaks. I have things I want to accomplish each day, up to 6, and it reminds me to accomplish those goals everyday. I don’t know why but seeing it on the app and having the notification really helps!
