Super Hero Strength that reveals my secret identity....

For the 7th week of the BLC challenge I am supposed to blog about a time when I showed super hero strength (mental or physical). I will say that my super hero strength was about 5 years ago.

My husband had decided that he didn't want to stay with me and our children. So he moved out. It was hard at first because my daughter was graduating from high school. My son was going through a rough time and felt that he was at fault. I will be honest that I did cry a lot.

What really helped me were all my family and friends. I started to look at what had happened to me as a chance to change. I didn't turn to food. I decided to go back to things that I enjoyed such as exercsing, singing, dancing and much more. I joined a gym and exercised every day at lunch. I started to lose the weight and felt good about myself again. I made healthy food choices and realized that I was wearing a body of fat as a 'mask'.

I love to be active. I love to exercise whether is it strength training, cardio or doing a dance routine. I also enjoy the quiet time and relaxation of yoga. Being active helps me life a healthy lifestyle.

So as I slowly remove this mask I realize that I love being with people that shre the same interests and just love to be themselves and not judge everyone. I am who I am and I LOVE who I am!!

So find your Super Hero Strength and see if you find your secret identity.

Have a great day!!

    Great blog! I'm glad that something positive came out of your husband leaving you. I'm sure that even though you weren't very happy when it happened that you're definitely happier now because you became the real you.

    And, way to go for getting a headstart on the WC duties! emoticon
