Ever since I have had kids I have struggled with losing weight. I found myself in the slump of not knowing how to take time for me and still feel like a good mom. I felt that if my kids were happy, healthy and well taken care of I would be proud of what I have accomplished. Now don't get me wrong I do feel accomplished that I am 27 years old with 3 happy, healthy children and a stable 8 years relationship with the love of my life. But....I found myself seeing my flaws in all of our pictures we would take and would feel embarrassed for my kids. My struggle is like other Moms. Laundry, dinner, sports, snuggles, family time, date nights. Always came before me. About 2 years ago I decided to join Fit4MOM Spokane and much to my surprise I learned how to balance my life. I feel happy, healthy and well on my way to reaching my fitness goal. I take it day by day and know that I will have hours, weeks, days that I feel like I have failed. But, I try to remember why I started and where I want to go. A huge thank you to my support system at Fit4Mom Spokane Body Back, my friends and family who constantly have to hear about my food, posts about my runs/workouts and most of all the biggest supporter and my rock on days I forget why I started, Thomas. I am proud to say I'm not quite where I want to be but I'm not looking back. Here is a photo from my latest 8 Week Challenge."
