Hello World.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

That is usually the title of the first blog post you get when you start a new WordPress blog. I feel like it is  appropriate for this post because I feel like this is [going to be] a whole new blog. While I'm still the same person with the same history, I'm completely different. Having a child has flipped my life on its head and I'm better for it, but different none the less.

My motivation for being healthy has changed.

My goals are different.

My free time is VERY limited.

Deep down, I'm a blogger. Writing has always helped me to see things a bit more clearly. Instead of looking at my time on this site as something I *have* to do, I plan to use it as something to help me turn into the person I want to. I saw a tweet the other day that said "Think of the person you want your children to become, now be that person." I wish I could remember who said it so I could give them credit. If it was you, let me know. 

I've started eating healthier, tiny bites at a time. I'm sure this time my journey to a lower weight won't be such a whirlwind. I have other things on my plate. (Pun intended.) I also plan to use this blog to write down the other things I'm doing to lead a healthy life. It will probably include details about my family and my hobbies. 

If this isn't something you're interested in reading, go ahead and click the "unfollow" button. I realize that I'm changing the rules of this blog and I promise I won't hold any grudges. 

I'm nearly back to my before weight. I'm planning on having more children in the near future so a pregnancy wouldn't be completely unexpected and I'm completely enamored with a tiny human I let live in my house and my heart free of rent.
