Well, I am now onto Day 5 of my new transformation, and yes, it has been a real eye-opener! So far I have managed to achieve bits of one aspect of my goal – eat two breakfasts that didn’t comprise of bought muesli! Although, in the past I would have looked with disgust on my results and thought of myself as an absolute failure, I now don’t. What I now see is someone who has other priorities in her life rather than being fit, toned and flat stomached. My goals were unrealistic when set up against the needs of my family – my self-improvement goals will now always take the backseat whereas in the past they would have been my driving force. I have also had to come face to face with how distracted I can be when I have had broken sleep the night before. I am NOT motivated to bounce around and exercise or plan my next fabulous breakfast dish, when I have been woken up three times in the night by a coughing toddler – for the fifth night in a row! So, my goals have now been reduced to simply eating less at night and running around with the kids when I can fit it in between the endless housework and showers of rain. My toning may now take two years rather than 12 weeks but it will happen – I will not fall off the journey of self-improvement just because the progress is so painfully slow – one cannot move as fast with two children strapped to your leg – we will all move forward together.
Hello everyone! I'm so excited to be able to share some of my experiences with you, and so look forward to hearing some of yours. My passion is to help others avoid unrequited love, and to enjoy, (rather than endure) their parenthood experience. I am no expert in these areas but want to try and fill in some of the gaps the experts don't talk about, or simply gloss over. I look forward to your thoughts.
