Hello Spark World! I'm happy to be blogging once again. I had a page under the name OnMyWay135 for a few years, but decided to start over because the fact that I had lost weight under that name, then gained a ton back (due to pregnancy and stress issues), then couldn't get my butt into gear to lose was weighing me down. That account became a weight on my mind, so here I am now, as my new self, no longer dragging my past accomplishments around in the mud behind me.
In the past week I have really found the groove I lost after becoming a mother. Don't get me wrong, I love my daughter and I am sooooo happy to have her in my life, but the balance of work, motherhood, marriage and family/friend commitments was not falling in to place for me. Now that my daughter is almost 2 I finally feel I have more time and energy to take care of myself, as well as my child.
My husband is majorly supportive and only wants the best for me. I guess that old adage "a happy wife means a happy life" is one he lives by.
At this point I am losing pretty quickly, and I hope to keep that on track. We have a lot of commitments this year (weddings, mostly) and they do eat up some of our time, but not enough to keep me from accomplishing my goals.
I am working hard to get to the point where I feel comfortable with pregnancy again (physically - mentally I love being pregnant). We are ready for baby number 2!!
Anyway, I am glad to be where I am today. I love myself and will work hard to get my body in better shape.
