I am a mommy to a beautiful, little girl who turned three years old in Novembe. My darling girl has been diagnosed with Rett Syndrome which is a neurological disease, known as the most severe form of autism. Lily does not walk or talk and she requires total care. We are still working thru all of this and I have been battling a bit of depression. I've plunged into my full time career because I have found that it is SOMETHING that I can control, to some degree but as a result of a crazy busy schedule which includes travel and running to various therapy appointments for my daughter, I have completely ignored myself...my health. I have stuggled with my weight my entire life but it has gotten out of control. Now that I have a little girl, I want to be more fit and to feel better about my body. I'd like to set an examble of self love and acceptance for my little girl. Even more importantly, I want to be able to be active WITH her as she grows. I am not a very athletic person but I want to be able to keep up ccwith an active toddler once she gets going. Not to mention the need for a little stress relief. I'm having a tough time finding "me" time but I need to figure out how to fit it in. I NEED to get moving...NOW! I just returned from a one month leave of abscence to take care of some of my daughter's medical issues. As I start back to my busy work/home schedule, I want to get off on a solid start.
