They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. This will make about a million times that I’ve tried hopping back on the fitness wagon, it always seems like something is waiting to throw me off.
I was so determined to be successful after my last son was born, nearly 5 months ago now. What I wasn’t counting on is that my pre-eclampsia symptoms would stay/return, and I would have to have another surgical procedure in July in order to correct the situation. Now, here I am again.
Technically, I could have returned to my attempt at fitness last month in August, but with everything that’s been going on in my life, it just didn’t happen. A toddler starting a new pre-school, a new baby at home, my husband out of work and unable to do anything due to having surgery on his knee, a new pile of medical bills from my unexpected surgery and the list goes on. Additionally, my husband and I had been having relationship problems and he was having a lot of issues at work – so yet again, my fitness journey got put on a back burner.
So here we are again, it’s early September and it’s time to put a little bit of focus on me. I do feel a little insane, because I’ve been here so many times before, but I’m going to err on the side of faith, and give this another shot. Wish me luck!
