Monday Motivation

Today marks just 1 day shy of 3 weeks since our little man came into this world!  For this mama it is time to start on my journey back.  However, the more I think about it....the climb back to where I was...I am switching my focus.  I don't want to just get back to where I was...I want to be stronger!!!  I have done this twice before...lost the my speed back...but this time I want speed AND strength!  Third times a charm right?!  I have another 3 weeks until I can really get moving again so for that time I am going to focus on my food.  Low carb/low sugar has always worked for my body and so that is where I am going to start.  Once I get running again I am going to add back some healthy carbs, but until then low carb it is!  I am going to be kind and mindful of the healing process...of my lack of sleep...but I WILL make it back and then some!!!
How will you make this week STRONG for you?


  1. I agree that coming "back" from pregnancy is such an opportunity to rebuild your body exactly the way you want it! I was amazed at how much stronger and faster I came back after having the boys. I also love that you're self aware enough to know you need to have patience and be kind to yourself since you just created and are now nurturing a human!! Love all the pics of your sweet baby boy!!! Congratulations again :-)

  2. You're my inspiration Nancy! Four months later and I haven't started the return to fitness in the way that I had wanted to, but now's as good a time as two months ago! Thanks for the perspective on the journey, I'm glad I'll have your example for motivation �� Hope you're loving all of the little man snuggles!!
