So I gave birth to my second biological (third child total) in January and I worked and I worked to drop the baby fat. Which…I did (yay me), but with life and..oh did I say life. My exercise regimen plummeted. Honestly, this has always been an area of struggle for me, because I have a hard time staying committed to things. But I have really been working on me. Working on being organized, being healthy and having balance.
See, I was the child who had her English work in her Math folder and her Math work with her social studies folder…I knew where everything was oddly enough,but man oh man did I struggle with keeping things together. Unfortunately, some of that carried over to adulthood. I mean I envy those people who have things labeled and have exactly what that label has in that drawer or bin. That was always hard for me. It honestly boils down to discipline.
If you want something bad enough, if you can taste it, if you dream it…if it haunts you. You will find a way to make that a reality.
You may be wondering what does this have to do with empowerment. It has everything to do with it. My husband said it best: exercise is the one thing that no one can do for you. And that’s true. Your success is built on your blood, sweat and tears- nothing else.
Being disciplined is the only way you will meet those goals. I don’t care what it is, if you can’t figure out how to make you and your dreams a priority, you will always struggle with getting to where you want to be.
Starting with renewing my exercise regimen is more about what I am saying to myself and less about what I want to physically alter. This is a commitment to myself, telling myself that I am worth it. I am worth taking 30 minutes to an hour out of each day to better myself.
So…here I am…the chick who never played sports, who runs when something is chasing me LOL taking on this project (again).
