I’m a stay at home mom. I have two boys one is 4 and the others 3. They are my life. My husband works a rotating shift away from home. My family jokes that I’m a single parent. Its really not that bad he’s gone for 4 and home for 4.
I don’t go to the gym. I like routine, so missing a day at the gym, would frustrate me. What I do is run when my Husband is home. And when he isn’t I do the NTC workouts. I love to lift weight and that would probably be the only reason I would get a gym pass. We just don’t have the room to have that many weights. When I feel like I need a change I play dance revolution when my kids go to bed. I have no rhythm and I’m sure I look like a fish out of water. I’m afraid to start yoga without some sort of person to person instruction. Thats actually my goal for winter to get instruction so i can start practicing properly.
I don’t really have a sad life history. I was overweight when I hit my teens. My grandparents had passed away and I didn’t deal with that loss well. I started to eat to make everything feel better. Then I would get depressed because I was fat. My mom scared me into going to weight watchers. I’m glad she did start taking me. I’m sad that the way she decided to do so has hurt myself image. It’s been difficult getting to the point where I can see myself in the mirror and not a teenager who’s short and almost as wide as her height. It’s kinda screwed me up. After WW I started feeling better about myself but I was still depressed. Had a few issues with depression. Then when I was 16 close to 17 I met my Husband. Thats when my life was complete. He made it so I felt whole.
We have been happily married for 8 years. I’m learning to eat clean and I’m exercising for myself. For some reason that I don’t always accept. I will always be loved.
