Who am I?

Who am I? I'm a wife, a lover, a mother, a best friend. Who am I? I'm a health researcher, a college graduate, a home owner, a tax payer.

Who was I? I was go getter, gonna rule the world, life changer, a party girl, the I wanna be out til the sun comes up girl. Who was I? The college athlete with out a care in the world; the self-centered image vanity seeker.

When did I stop becoming one and started becoming the other? Was it over night? Was it a gradual process? Did I just stop cold turkey? I honestly can't remember.

One day I woke up and my life changed forever. The girl who was going to rule the world became to lady who was having a baby. There was no more going out (people would think a pregnant lady on the dance floor is strange); no more drinking, no more feeling sexy in my own skin.

It's the later that still bugs me the most. I went from a confident bikini wearing short shorts, tub top to unable to look in the mirror. Geeze I used to cringe at the thought of pants! Now they are the first things I go far before going out. If the old me saw me now she would slap the Hades outta me. I promised myself after I had Ace I would go back to normal....wrongoooooooo!!!!!!

All of a sudden I have become mother hen, afraid to leave my little chick behind in fear he might need me; or that I might miss something. Scared because 5 days outta the week my son is in daycare under the eyes of another person without me.

Is it fair to my husband that during the weekend I don't wanna go out cause after all I only get 2 days with Ace to actually spend time with him? Excuse? Yes it is. Scared that I won't look the same in my old clothes or that I shouldn't dress that was as a mommy.

Jealousy? I never used to know the word til recently. Jealous of who? Everyone!!!!! Everyone who stays at home with their kids during the week. Jealous of those who go out dancing. Jealous of those who watch my son during the week. Jealous of those who still look the same as they did 2 years ago. Jealous of those who still go out with their husbands.

I know I write about exercises and ways to feel good bout yourself. But what about the inner person we all have. I tend to focus alot on the outward appearance but I think it's time to switch it up a bit and work on the inner person as well.

Time to get my rear in gear! And focus

Day 2 of flexibility

Today was rough at work! I was so sore from yesterday's stretching and core; I felt like a total wienie too. There was a time when I was beyond flexible and now I kinda feel like an old tortilla that's been left in the fridge to long and when you take it out it and fold it, it cracks a breaks :-/

Today was my second attempt. I was finally able to put my elbows on the floor while doing the floor straddle.

Today I also decided that I need to set a goal for myself...

1. By May be able to do the left/right split.
2. By June be able to do the center split
3. By August be down to 15-18% body fat (20%)

Today's stretch consisted of floor straddle stretchin, hurkey floor stretchin both sides and both front and back. And then25 pike ups for abs and then pike up twists.

Pics will come soon when I can have some when take them .

Lots of water tomorrow to help ease soreness

So there was a time back before I was pregnant that I was flexible. Today for the first time since having Ace 8 months ago I attempted a split an a backbend. Needless to say it was awful!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't do either one! I wanted to cry so bad! I couldn't even do a bridge!

You know what that means?!? It's time to strengthen my core and start stretching!!!! I stretched my lower legs and my back and did a few leg lifts to get my rear in gear!

Time to work baby!
