A few blogs ago, when I was making my birthday wish list, I said we will come back to relfect on my last year since my birthday.
Well last year in August, I was determined to lose all the baby weight by Dec 2011 but I haven’t. I still have 40lbs to go. So my goal is to lose it by this Dec 2012.
Last year for my birthday hubby and i went to vegas for 3 days and this year we plan on going to san diego for one night. Emma was only 3 months old when we left her with mom, so I was having panic attacks being away from her that long.
I’ve grown a lot since last year. I’ve transitioned into motherhood. It took me awhile.
It’s been almost a year since I’ve been back to work since my maternity leave.
I’ve enrolled in 2 classes for the fall.
I signed up at the gym and have being going 3 x a week.
I’ve rekindled some old friendships.
I’m in a better place, mentally, emotionally.
I’ve learned I can be tough when I need to be
I have experienced some biblical truths that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
I was having really bad self-image cuz of my weight gain, but I’ve learned to accept it at any size and work on toward my goal.
I’ve been getting a lot more sleep since Emma is older.
I’m enjoying play time with my baby more than anything.
i love family time.
We started going to church as a family once Emma turned 6 months – we enrolled her in our Church’s nursery.
My goals for my next birthday would be:
Have lost all the weight, and look/feel better than ever.
Finished/or close to finish my degree.
Go out-of-town with the entire family
