A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey… but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong. So every day I get STRONGER!

Randoms from my fitness journal

Thought about starting a new journal over the past few months and with so many things that are trying to steal my joy I felt now was the time and this will give me a way to stay focused on my journey.

The past few years I’ve regained 15-20lbs over the winter months pushing my weight into the 150’s every time. Well this year I stayed consistent with everything and I am happy to say that I have actually lost this time around!

My current story goes like this:

36yr old mother of two in the final stages of divorce from a marriage of 11yrs. Had planned a move to Dallas after my divorce was final but that plan fell apart so here I sit about to make a brave attempt at starting over.

Working out has always been “my time” my stress reliever, my solace, and so I plan to use this journal to keep me grounded. I’m ready and poised for the great new things that will come into my life as I enter this new chapter.

My goals:
1)Get a job(been a stay at home mom for 8yrs)
2)Go back to school(studying Deaf Education)
3)Get my own place(that I control)
4)Have my best year ever
5)Get my best body ever
6) Never lose myself in a relationship again, NEVER!
 The longer I put off things the more anxiety about what could happen builds up and it makes me not want to follow through. But when I go ahead and take the plunge, I realize that it was not as bad as I thought it would be.
I felt like I’ve been on the cusp many times before, but instead of going for it, I shrink back afraid of my greatness. Never again, there’s no time like the present to give life my all.
I do Kundalini yoga which I love! Lots of movement and mantras. I always feel transformed after doing it even when I don’t get a meditation in.
Been kicking butt on some killer hills and I can tell the difference in my glute/leg strength.
