Baby steps to the person I want to be

Sunday, March 31, 2013

I'm in bed listening to my hubby snored. We've been through one of the worst years of our lives but it has brought us closer together as a couple. We were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and displaced for the passed 5 months living in a spare bedroom in my mom's part of the house since our lower level apartment was destroyed. All I feel for weeks was devastation. Our place had originally been my bachelorette pad and in the blink of an eye we lost everything. Everything is fixed up again and we just recently moved back in but so many things couldn't be replaced and I actually we stuffed our feelings with food. I was on ww and doing amazingly for me, I had even started a vlog on YouTube. I was all in and then that night the Sany came and torn my house apart. A piece of me broke. Thankfully I feel myself coming out of this place and embracing the new circumstances before me. I want to have that drive again and more. I want to be able to still take care of me even when the world is falling apart. I want my husband and I to live healthier lives. Now that we aren't solely focused on survival, I believe we have a fighting chance. I'm going to start one better habit a week at a time. This week I'm focused on getting my water in. I will take each day as a new one and not let the transgressions of yesterday influence the promise of today. I'm mentally ready again. That's what I needed. I hope to make friends on here and to be inspired and to inspire others. Look out world, I'm back.

    You have been through the worst and come out a better person most definitely. You have a great fighting spirit and I believe that both of you will turn this negative situation into something positive.
