Yeah, I’ve been there! You see, I’ve suffered from depression myself; it was a very dark time. It all started about 10 years ago after the birth of my second child; 2006 was a rough year, let me tell you! And it affected my ENTIRE family life.
Maybe you know what I’m talking about here…My marriage was on the rocks, I had a 12 month old baby and a newborn to care for, and I was overweight, miserable AND to top it all off, I was on anti-depressants. The one thing I knew in the midst of the fog was that I had to take matters into my own hands. I took the FIRST big step and started seeing a therapist…regularly. Back then I was embarrassed as heck, but now, I encourage everyone to go ASAP. I remember in the first few sessions the Doc turns to me and says “you need to start working out”. I remember thinking to myself, is she for real …this is seriously what I am paying for lol? Darn dang it, she was absolutely right and that single comment totally changed my life!
In those days, yes, back when little 9” screens existed; I was watching TV in my kitchen while making dinner and this exercise infomercial came on. Holy sh** I was mesmerized! Kicking and punching to cool funky music … what could be better than that?? Talk about anger management tools. I remember calling my husband telling him about this kick ass workout called Turbo Jam [link to this] and telling him I just had to buy it. He was totally on-board with it and plus, it was Doctors’ orders anyhow right?
This program literally CHANGED my life and led me to the current wellness path that I am on. It took a few months of exercising, changing my eating habits and most off all working on myself, but eventually I was able to stop taking my anti-depressants and … 10 years later, here we are! I’ve never looked back!
So, you see; you are not alone in this. Having children, gaining weight, feeling lost, having no confidence and being depressed is something many moms go thru, but it’s 1 what we do about it that matters the most. You deserve to make time for yourself and fit in your workout no matter what. You have to make it NON-NEGOTIABLE like I did and still do.
At any rate, I want you know that my life’s passion is to helping others with the same struggle turn things around and begin to love life and yourself ( inside and out) through healthy eating and exercise. Getting healthy, strong and confident can be yours!
