I am totally exhausted, I haven’t an ounce of patience left, and I am on day 2 of solo parenting. This state use to mean binge eating whatever sweet food I had in the house or making something to satisfy some hole I had inside of me. But thanks to this incredible life changing fitness program I am not eating away my emotions. Instead, I am celebrating my new view of food, with a mug of hot water and a mini happy dance that “Gossip Girl” was put back on Netflix Canada.
Today had its struggles with a rough night with Jake, emotional and tired kiddos all afternoon and evening, never a chance for me to relax, and not nearly perfect on my timed nutrition. But today also had victories that I make sure that I also acknowledge like fitting into pre pregnancy jeans, getting the opportunity to visit with my grandparents, parents and Mother in law, partaking in a team call to further my learning, grocery shopping solo and choosing to make a healthy choice this evening not eating my feelings. .
Days of motherhood have their ups and downs, it is how you choose to view them and yourself that really define your successes and failures.
