I was doing so well....even got down to my goal weight!  Where have I gone?  Where the heck did all my motivation go?  Why do I just want to hide under the covers?!  In July/August of last year I had come out of my last cycle of depression and regression into someone who I knew I wasn't destined to be and I just recently decided I wasn't going to allow myself to fall into the same trap.  I was doing so good with my daily exercise which felt amazing, nutrition was on point with clean eating and portion control and I even incorporated 2 cheat meals a week.  So what gives you ask?  Well, I am not really sure but I have an idea that it is a combination of many things.  With having my son recently being diagnosed with Autism and navigating that system, trying to be a good mom, wife and coach, I quickly felt like I was drowning and needing to climb my way out.    This is why I literally woke up last week and it dawned on me.  I need to get it together!  Yea, life certainly happens....we all have set backs, lets downs, and stressors.  It is all in how we deal with it that matters.  So, I have decided to fight back! I am blessed to get to do what I do on a daily basis (being a mom, wife, and health & fitness coach).  I GET to do this!  So I am picking myself up by the boot straps and not letting my excuses or past struggle with depression become a reason AGAIN for me to lose myself.  

This past Tuesday, my sister (who is my coach) and I started a 21 day fix challenge group with 10 other ladies who want to make positive lasting changes to their health.  I am not only coaching them, but I am using this as an opportunity to keep myself on track and accountable.  Another way to keep myself accountable is share my journey.  So daily I will be blogging my way thru my comeback!   Hopefully I can not only continue to crush my goals but maybe in the process help inspire someone else to start crushing some health and fitness goals themselves! 

I am well into day 2 of the 21 days and I have to report that I am doing really well!  Not only have I managed to get up early and do my workouts but I am on point with my nutrition and feeling really good!  I think I am well on my way to a full-blown "Comeback" status!  My lower fix workout today nearly killed me and made my legs feel like jello, but darnit, I feel great! So watch out world things are about to get crazy!

Signing off until tomorrow and remember you are all WONDERFULLY MADE!
