chat chat Let’s have a chat. Buckle up because it’s going to be a rambly ride.
A few weeks back I wasn’t feeling like the best mom out der. I wallowed. You listened. And now I’m back to give you more. This one is better though, I promise?
The only reason I have for this clarity of thought is that the stomach flu from HELL must have cleansed my brain of all fog along with 10 pounds I didn’t know I had to give.
But my healthy mind decided something:
Maybe it’s not that I’m a crappy mom. Maybe it’s that I have anxiety. And instead of feeling sorry for myself, I can do something about it. So, I’m going to start right here by rambling about it to you…
This is where it gets foggy again.
Before I had kids, and before I got into an (minorrrr) accident (maybe I should write about that one day?), I didn’t have anxiety like this. I wanted to be a personal trainer and nutritionist. I worked out. I used to be a gym rat, you guys. Would you believe it? I hit the gym 7.days.a.week. I had arm and leg days. Who was I??? I trained for a marathon. I felt good. I want to go back there-ish.
And, because I am a listmaker, list-make I must. I decided on 10 things that would make me feel more of who I feel that I am: the person I was before kids, except this time, WITH kids. Do you know what I’m trying to say? Should I have scrapped this post the first time I tried? The list. Right:
- Eat Well
- Take a Probiotic
- Reduce Sugar Intake
- Use Essential Oils More
- Replace Anxious Habits
- Go to Chiro
- Take a Blood Booster
- Stop Yelling
- Daily Prayer
I have plans for these things. Big plans. Plans with all kinds of details that I will certainly follow through on. But, I don’t want to steal all of the spotlight with my grand and foolproof plans. No no.
Instead, why don’t you load me up with all of the motivation and advice and products I need. That would certainly be helpful, you know, if I didn’t already have big plans…
