Pushing Forward

Posted on

Hey y'all!

So, I'm going to update everyone on my last two weeks. First, let me say this, depression and anxiety are no joke. They can affect more than just our mental health. They also affect our bodies, and I've been under a lot of stress and that has triggered my depression/anxiety.

Now with that being said, let me tell you how my last weigh-in went. I've gained a few pounds back and a few inches. I was so disappointed in myself. I was determined to do things double time at home.

After visiting my dad at the hospital I got really sick. I was running a fever up to 102.8 degrees. I did that for a week solid. Then, once I started getting over that I ended up with a bad virus that took almost a week to get over. That meant two weeks I wasn't able to make it to BodyTrac! And let me tell you between the weight gain, the sicknesses, worrying about my daddy and getting my son ready to go back to school, I slipped into a bad depression. But I've decided I'm not going to let all of that hold me back. I'm going to push forward and make up for the time lost along with the weight gain.

I will get my health in order. I will push forward no matter what, and I will get to where I need to be! I have an AMAZING support team with my friends at the gym, and my awesome coach Kolbey. The people from Archbold Marketing are sweet and supporting, as well. They knew I had been having a rough week a few weeks ago, so they got me a beautiful card and fruit basket. I will be honest with you, I teared up a little. It’s nice to know that people care so much about us. All I can say now is I'm beyond blessed.
