Mommy of two getting fit


Recommended Posts

I'm a mom. I'm a student. I'm a server. I'm busy! I feel like I'm running around all the time, without actually breaking a sweat, or burning calories. I have a 4 year old and a 3 month old, and have very little time to take care of me. But that is all about to change.

Recently my family and I were walking around a festival when my fiance (who is far more active than I) were approached by a guy promoting the upcoming jail break run. It is a 5k in St. Augustine starting at the old jailhouse and ending at the ocean. It's on October 29th and costumes are encouraged! How could I not be interested?! So, that was it. I looked at my fiance and said, we are so doing this! His eyes lit up! He has seen me at my heaviest, and watched me carry two of his children, and has loved me at every weight. But he has never gotten to experience me, fit and truly healthy. He has never gotten to love a woman with a passion, for herself.

What running this 5k represents to me is everything. It is a symbol of me putting myself first. Of me showing my boys what perseverance is, and them learning healthy behavior. It is a goal that I will accomplish, and it has already made me feel so much stronger just knowing I CAN do this. I am so excited, and I'm so happy to have found a community of people just beginning like myself. We got this, now let's go!
