This week I started working on a road map for my journey. I thought my journey was just about getting exercise and eating healthfully. In the research I am doing I am finding that it is about so much more. My original longterm goal was to be healthy, but I need balance too. I need to find my sense of self. That has been my biggest frustration the past 3-4 years. Aftter becoming a mother of two I lost who I was. Why should I be identified strictly as one of my daughter's mom? It is fine in daycare, ballet class or school settings. Things that are about my children.
That is where I got off my course - when I let myself go completely to the three other people in my family. I am really having a struggle reclaiming myself.
Now, I need to tackle keeping myself accountable. Friday is going to be my reporting day. Tomorrow is my first day. I am optimistic. There are things I could do better, but also I put forth more effort than I have since this summer.
Onto my goals for the week.
1. I will strength train 2x this week.
2. I will drink 64 oz of water everyday.
3. I will have fun at the ballet recital.
