Well, besides being extremely sore, I am feeling motivated and more confident by the minute. It's amazing how good we feel when we are taking care of ourselves. Even though I teach not to neglect yourself during time of crisis or stress, that's exactly what I did for the past year. It seemed like bad news about Isabella's health was always lurking. Instead of fighting the fear with FITNESS, I gave into emotional eating and occasionally inactivity. I guess I did what I needed to do to cope? Yes, I wish I had chosen the healthier way to deal, but now I have the opportunity to create another amazing transformation and hopefully encourage a lot of you to do the same. Each time I feel vulnerable or weak, I remind myself how good it's going to feel to be lean again. Being able to wear all my "fit self" clothes is going to be amazing! Being able to order new vacation clothes or clothes in general is going to be GREAT! Besides that, I want to be fit for my Bug! A fit mom is a happy mom, a happy mom is a SUPER MOM! It's so on!!
