It is New Years Eve and I'm sitting on the couch while Big T plays on the floor with his trucks and The Hubs is in his chair messing with his new phone.
MJ is already asleep.
We are staying in this year, have no plans and no one coming over.
I am sick. Like deathly. Or maybe I'm exaggerating. WHO ME???
But seriously, I hurt all over.
My face has so much pressure it's ridic.
But as I sit here, at 9:30pm on New Years Eve, wondering if I will even make it to midnight, I can't help but reflect on my year.
I have had to lose baby weight, for the second time, in 2012.
I've maintained around 140-145 lbs. for the better part of 6 months.
I ran my first ever half marathon. At 5 months postpartum. And 155 lbs.
Then I ran (and walked) my second half marathon and learned more than I ever thought possible in a race.
I learned what my body is capable of. That pain is temporary, but pride is forever.
That YOU ALL motivate me just as much OR MORE than I motivate YOU.
That because of this blog and my amazing readers I've been able to do some amazing things.
I've shared my story with strangers, and I've met some wonderful people.
I don't really do New Years Resolutions, but I do have goals for 2013.
I want to run a full marathon.
I want to lose these last 10-15 lbs.
I want to get into my coveted size 4 jeans.
I want to tone up and feel AMAZING in a bikini.
I want to write a book.
I want to continue to help other women and moms know that you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to. That you don't have to settle for mom jeans, or just feeling "okay" about yourself.
You CAN feel amazing. That is just takes some hard work and dedication. That I know it's not fun or fair. But that it's WORTH IT.
I hope you all have had a great 2012. I hope that this blog has helped bring some inspiration your way. That you've taken my story and used it to fuel your fire.
That you're able to see that anything is possible.
I hope to continue to inspire and motivate all of your asses in 2013!
HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!
HERE'S TO AN EVEN BETTER NEXT YEAR!
