Transition is learning

I'm learning so much these days and am so excited it's kept me up until now -- 1 am.  I'm  sure I'll crash at some point tomorrow but I just have so many exciting things going on. I'd really like to help as many people be the best that they can be and feel better about themselves and get into the best shape possible. I just don't know how to reach them. I've decided instead of wonder how all the other people do it, I'm just going to dive into blogging more on here and updating what I can and incorporating this blog into everything I'm about (in no order): Godly woman, wife, mommyhood, healthy food, beachbody, fitness, and a little bit of everything else that makes life go on and pops up and into my head. Mainly though I just want to focus on the positives. The media focuses on all the negativity and drama and there's so much more to life than to have a selfish view. I don't know how to make this blog better, but I don't know if I don't try. I'd love any comments from any of you reading and following me. Thanks!

Workin it out!

So I recently started working out again. 

Today was suppose to be a rest day but I didn't want to break the healthy habit I had of getting up early and starting my day by doing something good for myself, so I got up and had a good, long, extended stretch session. It was NICE!

On another note I took photos last night (my "before" photos) and I looked at the pics when I was done and ugh! I totally started getting discouraged! I starting picking out all my flaws. I just tried not to think about it and not pay it any attention and this morning too, I'm just not going there. I'm not going to get down on myself because I'm changing. We're changing. We're a work in progress. We have to start somewhere. Ya know, one of my favorite quotes by a woman I love to listen to says, “I may not be where I need to be but I thank God I am not where I used to be.” And isn't that the truth. So I don't have a six pack yet, so I have some flab in places I wouldn't like, well I need to be real and honest with myself. I've had two kids!! That takes a toll on my body. Kids or not, life happens and we fall in some unhealthy ruts, but what matters is the here and now, what we are doing today to make ourselves and each other better.
