Finding My Voice

FullSizeRender 15

Good morning! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I cannot believe it is already April! This year is flying by!

Yesterday marked 2 years since my son got sick (He’s perfectly healthy now!) and a series of events to follow that led us into the worst 18 months of our lives. It was horrific, and at some points I didn’t think I would be able to make it through.

But we fought through and are now in a better place than we have ever been. I am learning to enjoy life more, and not take anything for granted. This awakening is what inspired my blog, so I wanted to explain in a little ore depth where I am coming from.

I don’t know quite yet want I want to say in the long term, what exact direction this little blog is going in. I don’t have some grandiose master plan.

I’ve never been one to follow a specific path.

I just want a place to share my life, and my life is all over the place!

Yes, diet and exercise are a huge part of my life. Not because I have ANY professional training in either realm. It’s more because I am mother of 2 kids in her mid 30’s and I really want to be healthy for them, lose about 30lbs and get toned and sexier. I want that light bulb to go off, and all of a sudden I am balls to the wall with my diet and exercise. And I thought maybe if I shared my journey it would light a fire under my ass to actually do it.

But guess what?

I am a teacher, daughter, and dog mom, trying to navigate raising 2 crazy boys, while maintaining my identity as a wife and a friend. I am also a chocaholic, shopaholic, shoe obsessed, culinary school drop out.

I find writing this blog extremely fun and cathartic, and I enjoy writing very much.

So yes, one day I may be talking about my workouts and eating plans, and in the next breath showing off my mad Pinterest skills at my kid’s party.

If it’s going on in my life, or inside my head, good or bad, I will most likely put it out there.

I love to share. In fact, believe it or not, I have been known to overshare. 🙂 I am documenting with you my personal journey to find health, happiness, wellness, and balance in this crazy life. And I am having a little fun along the way. And I really hope you enjoy reading it!

Until next time.

  1. Just came across your blog. It seems we have many things in common.
    I am a boy mom and he has had a few health hiccups involving a couple of hospital stays but is now healthy and thriving (and I am eternally thankful) . It’s one of those things that while you’re going through it you can’t see the light but boy once it resolves you have a clearer more grateful perspective on life and understand what truly matters. It can be so lonely and even afterward I have a hard time listening to people’s trivial complaints.
    I also am trying to get in shape for similar reasons to you. It’s harder in my mid 30s and unlike some skinny friends I’ll never be someone who stays in shape by chasing after my toddler. I need to work at it by spending time exercising and making good food choices. After over two years I’m finally getting back on track.
    Thanks for sharing your journey. I look forward to reading more.
