Out of shape as a Mother (you know the rest)

I posted the other week about my issues with weight and how Ive been struggling a lot the past few months, well, years to be honest. I shared how I was starting with a personal trainer and I did, however per my awesome luck, I got a miserable virus from my cousin, which I then passed onto my son and then of course my husband..so its been weeks since I’ve been able to properly workout or even move around for more than 10 minutes without feeling like my life was coming to an end. So I finally tried to go back to training on Tuesday and I kid you not..I was so over heated/out of it from being sick for so long that I did two dead lifts..yes you heard me TWO, and I got so lightheaded and faint that I literally had to stop the workout before it even began and my trained had to go into the office (filled with a bunch of other trainers watching) and get me a protein bar. Needless to say, it was a GREAT feeling. If this was ten years ago I would have been so mortified that I’d never go back, but since becoming a mom it takes an awful lot to embarrass me (I know you fellow toddler parents know what I mean.) Regardless, now it feels like I’m right back to where I started, which is an out-of-shape mom trying to get fit but struggles so damn hard. I know that I need to get out of my head and focus on long-term lifestyle changes that I’m making but finally getting into a groove and immediately having such a set-back has left me feeling frustrated. Over the past few months I’ve gained so much noticeable weight that I’m fairly sure close friends and family assume I have baby #2 on the way, but rest assured its just my unhealthy relationship with food and stress, per usual. I’m doing my best to put the past few weeks behind me and start new so I hope my next health journey post is much more positive and less self-loathing and I’m sorry if this post was a bummer but I appreciate all the support and messages and know I’m not alone in this. If you have any advice that worked for you at the beginning of your health journey please feel free to share below. Until next time xo Chrissy
