Reflections on Being a Mommy

I was one of the many who became a mom for the first time at a later age.  There was really no rhyme or reason for waiting.  It just sort of happened that way.  Getting married and having a family was never one of my "must have" goals.  It if happened, I was ok with it.  And if it never happened, I was ok with that too.  I didn't meet Freddy until I was almost 30 and was 35 when I had Marshall.  So I had a lot of living completed during the time period that we'll call "Before Marshall".

May Goals

As I'm working to get my life organized this year, I've decided to make some monthly goals for myself.  Some of these goals will be goals every month, and others will be just for that month.  For 2016 I really want to focus on my health and fitness by taking some baby steps and finish out the year strong.  I have not been treating myself very well the past 4 months and I'm starting to feel it.  I know I've gained 10 - 15 lbs since January and I find myself winded just walking up the stairs to the 2nd floor of our house.  With Freddy scheduled to deploy later this year and a very active 5 year old, I need to be mentally and physically ready to take on this challenge.
