The Year of ME

Today is my birthday... 32 years old. It has been a hard 5 years- having children, returning to work, helping DH open our business. Somewhere in the busy of things I have felt like I have totally let myself go. I used to be happy, positive, gave a s@#t about what I look like. Now, I run all day... to private clients, work, back home, with the kids for their activities. I leave no time for me and it is really showing. I have also gained 40 pounds since I have been married. But its not only about the weight gain- its just everything. I feel very overwhelmed at times. There is so much to do and not enough time.

So- I have decided with this birthday- I am going to work on me this year. The better I feel, the better mom and wife I will be. I know it won't be easy, that's why I will be blogging about it... for accountability.

The first thing I am working on is losing some weight. I will start tomorrow by weighing in (and yes I will post the horrid number). I am really ready to start going forward and getting my groove back (hence the blog name)
Stay tuned....

Hey there! I ran across your blog on babycenter and when I read your post, I thought I was reading about myself! I turn 32 in March and have totally lost myself these past few years. I have about 40 lbs to lose and finding time to exercise is the hardest thing to do. Even when I stayed at home with my son for 3 years, I STILL had a hard time exercising. Your post has motivated me to get myself in gear! :) Best of luck!
