Having a child changes you, in more ways than one.⁣

Before Lemmie, I had all the time I wanted to workout, track macros, go for walks, do whatever I needed to do to work towards my goals.⁣

I’m currently doing body weight squats next to her as she swings in her baby swing.⁣

And I thought to myself, is this my life now? 😂⁣

I used to go to the gym any time of the day I wanted.⁣

I could workout when I wanted. ⁣

I could eat without interruption. ⁣

I had less brain fog to remember to do the simple things I need to do like take pictures to track my progress.⁣

But I will tell you why this doesn’t worry me!⁣

For one, this is temporary.⁣

The newborn stage can be hard. It requires a lot of attention. (And I know that doesn’t stop, but it’s all new for me as a first time mom)⁣

Second, those who get results and keep them, focus on SOMETHING over nothing.⁣

Sometimes that means a 15 minute workout while your kid takes a nap.⁣

Sometimes that means your biggest win was only hitting your water goal for the day.⁣

And sometimes that even means reminding yourself that tomorrow is always a new day.⁣

This is my new normal and I have to learn how to navigate reaching my goals while being a mom. ⁣

Just because something is hard, doesn’t mean it’s impossible. ⁣

I just have to re-learn what will work for me in this phase of my life.⁣

This is my new normal.⁣

And instead of thinking that this is too hard, that I can’t reach my goals because it’s more difficult now…⁣

I am going to embrace the challenge.⁣

It’s going to take trial and error, but the reason it’s going to work is because I won’t give up.⁣

And above anything, I will be consistent.⁣

Perfection is not required! 👏🏼
