Becoming the best me I can be

Much needed update

This is a quick update. Sorry I’ve been MIA for the last week and a half. Life has been crazy. Full of ups and downs. I’ve had a lot of good news as well as some pretty bad news. I got hired for a second job. I’m pretty excited. The job offers flexible hours and I can choose how much I want to work each week. Plus I’ll be making $1.50-$3.50 more than I do at the job I’m working now. Woohoo! It pretty exciting stuff in my opinion. 😀

I started doing the last 30 days of BeFit in 90. I tried Day 61, got through the warm-up and first plyo video and spent the next 10 minutes gasping for air on the floor. I can’t believe how drastically the change in intensity was. I felt like I hadn’t worked out at all in the past two months. It was pretty embarrassing. I felt so depressed by not being able to complete it, I moped around for a few days. Not working out. Not doing anything other than spending time with my daughter and playing video games with my husband. After that, I decided to stop moping and get my butt back into gear. I am still unable to finish the workouts but I am trying my best and I am super sore afterwards. I’m trying to get my motivation back to where is was.

Last week, my husband’s aunt was taken to the hospital. We found out the following day she had a tumor in her brain causing brain swelling. They had emergency surgery to remove some of it. She’s been doing good. Yesterday, they had another surgery to remove the rest of it. I also found out this morning from my mother-in-law that she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. She has been amazing this past week, talking, joking around with family, and overall doing much better than the doctors could have hoped. Our family is just praying for her to have a quick recovery and we are supporting one another.

I’ll try to start posting more often. Sorry for being absent lately but I have a lot going on right now.
