I am sure you have noticed the blog has been pretty dead. Life got in my way big time. I am not going to lie. In the winter, Tobei and I were on our way to a divorce. Things got very bad for awhile to the point that I left and went to stay with my dad for a few days and collect my thoughts.
Thankfully we are not scared to ask for help and we sought out couple counselling. We are now in a new year, a new season and doing fantastic. Now that I have saved my marriage it is time to turn all that energy to myself.
When I first met Tobei I weighed 96 pounds. No, I was not unhealthy. I am short and was still the bracket of healthy weight for my height. Then along came kids, depression and life being nasty and throwing everything at us. I now sit here at (hold on going to weight myself for the first time in over a year)….. 165 pounds. HOLY CRAP! I almost fell off the scale. Now I know why I have been avoiding it.
Ya, so long story short I am not happy with myself. I have taken care of the mental part and finally admitted my depression and anxiety to my doctor and I have now been on medication for over a year. Now to tackle the physical part.
I just bought a fit bit through a group buy and should have it by the end of the month. I have downloaded the couch to 5k app on my phone and I am on the hunt for healthy meal plans that are budget and kid friendly. I am hoping it is not too hard of a task.
So there you have it. Nolie is coming back and is on the road to a better self. I hope you will tune in to follow my journey and help hold me accountable. Oh and if you have any recipes that are healthy and budget and kid friendly PLEASE leave me a link or two in the comment section.
