Whats up wreckless people?!
Summertime is winding down and my 30 day challenge is near an end! I want to thank everyone who’s reached out to me in participation! Some people admitted to either forgetting their tasks or just completely falling off the radar but hey! At least you made an attempt. I took my challenge too far one week when I decided to become vegetarian then I had to realize the whole point of the challenge was to make baby steps and not giant leaps into things. lol So of course I’m back to eating jerk chicken;) But I have lost over 30 pounds and I think my core area isn’t far separated anymore:-)
Anyway there is so much going on and happening that I couldn’t help but hear about; first of all RIP Robin Williams, then this Missouri incident, and clearly this ice bucket challenge has brought up the comment, “there are children dying of thirst in third world countries”. Then watching Beyonce perform at the VMA’s made me want to put my pole back up. But all in all I have just really been extremely consumed in my mommy bubble. I’m more relaxed than two months ago but I know it will take time to where I’m back to scrolling away on my phone caring about what else is going on. But for right now I have much to adjust to and to be honest I’m still loving it:-)
Can I just say babies changes things!! I mean everything is exciting now; from our first bus ride to the train ride and even a trip to Brooklyn is special. I mean I don’t even get down with Brooklyn like that but when I took my baby, I was literally like, “First trip to Brooklyn!!! yay!!!” eww
Then there are relationships; Some people that I have connected with and some who I’ve disconnected with. For instance, I have never heard this much from my parents in my life! I don’t even think they cared this much when they were raising me! But now that I gave birth to their grandson, I get multiple texts, calls, GIFTS and visits!!! Did I mention Babies changes things?! My relationship with God has definitely gotten stronger as well and people that there really is no need to deal with, I don’t:-) Its beautiful!
Surprisingly, one thing that hasn’t changed are my neat freak tendencies, also known as OCD! During my pregnancy I would read blogs about how mothers who were once very tidy and neat but since having a baby they are kind of just all over the place. Well I know my son is only two months but at the rate we are going the most exciting thing for playtime will be, “CLEAN UP, CLEAN UP, EVERYBODY EVERYWHERE”.
Things that I can’t do by myself and with the baby I definitely miss; Manicures/Pedicures and Waxing. Then there are things I miss doing that I have to do with the baby; using the restroom! #singleparentlife
Most of all though I’m excited and all I see are new beginnings for myself. I don’t think I realized how huge becoming a mother was until one day it just happened. I woke up like WOW, this is really only the beginning. It has been a lot! My circumstances and situations have not been the most dainty but preserving, staying motivated and being able to see the good out of everything and even laugh! is truly a blessing. Initially I came here to just blog about mommy updates but I really do want to encourage those who are stressing, worrying and dealing with trials and tribulations to stop, take a moment and appreciate what is good about something even when it may seem bad.
I guess you can say this is a toast! Here’s to new beginnings!
BTW here are some pics of me being cheesy as a new mom:-) As usual enjoy, comment and share below!
