Yesterday I was so beyond blessed to finally meet my sweet neice Camdyn. While at my sister's house I came across a picture of myself that I barely recognized. I was curious to look at more pictures of around that same time and was shocked. I thought this might be a good time to share a little bit about my #yogajourney
. At 25 I had my son Rowan and was ecstatic to be a #stayathomemom
but the cabin fever began to set in when he was 1 year old. I was lucky my friend Stephanie invited me to a class at our #ymca
. I was excited to get out and see people and set small goals of going to 2 classes a week for 2 weeks. Once I achieved that I stepped it up to 3 times a week for 3 weeks and then 4 times a week for 4 weeks😉After that going to the gym became routine and I tried a yoga class. I fell in love. After about six months and losing the extra 12 lbs of baby weight I had left over I got pregnant with my daughter and the morning sickness began right away. If I did find motivation to go to the Y class I would have to leave early so I stopped going. My husband and I decided to sell our house and buy a fixer upper. As most renovations do it took longer than expected and we were staying in one bedroom in my parents basement with a toddler and a new born. I didn't mind the extra hands the first few weeks but after time everyone needs their space😝Once we moved in I thought we would figure out this family of 4 thing no problem. NOPE! I was overwhelmed with nursing a new born playing with a toddler and unpacking a new house. I made cookies. I cried EVERYDAY. It was obvious I was struggling with #postpartumdepression
. I'm so blessed to have a #supportivehubby
and family who noticed and helped me get help. Finally I was able to claw my way out of bed and make it back to the Y. The first day back I took my first class with my now boss @go_aerial_fitness.
She reminded me why I loved yoga. To better see my #30lbsweightloss
