Up until this point, I haven’t been inspired to continue posting on my blog. The last few years have been filled with chronic pain and fatigue, and really, other than the day to day happenings of being ‘Mama’, there wasn’t a lot new and exciting going on. It took all I had just to get through each day.
Oh yeah, the chickens have been fun for us, but really, there’s only so much you can post on that before people start thinking you’re crazy.
It’s been over 3 weeks now, and it is so much easier than I thought it would be. Really, I wasn’t sure if we would last this long. But we aren’t hungry – we eat a LOT – and our tastebuds are changing. Food that we used to love doesn’t taste the same, it tastes salty and gross, and we are finding that we don’t even want it. We both have lost more weight than what we thought possible without an extreme exercise plan – and because of our new found energy we are finding that we are becoming more active and are looking forward to family hikes and such.
Best of all, I feel inspired – to be a better wife, mom, and all that God created me to be. Kate’s giggles this morning as I ran up our hill ahead of her were priceless. She was in shock and delighted at the same time, and she couldn’t wait to share with the other people at the bus stop.
If I feel this good in just a few short weeks, what’s the rest of the year going to be like for me?? I am excited to find out!
