Liam turned nine months old. NINE MONTHS! How did this happen? How is he almost a year old? Time seems to have gone by faster in this past nine months than it ever has for me. Jon and I have been married for two years and our little guy will be a year old in July. Jon is turning 25 this year and I will be 23! A couple goals that I have this year is to get in shape, I have NEVER been particularly fit, but I've never really had that big of a problem because I was always active and doing things, now that I'm a mom being active is kind of difficult. To top it off I haven't even lost the weight I gained from my pregnancy, and because of the Mirena IUD that I had for about six months I gained even more weight! I have actually been pretty self conscious of this since giving birth, I feel like I am huge! It's really bearing down on me and that is my number one goal! To lose weight! So I'll be writing about that soon on here too!
The next goal is to become a better housewife/mom. My mom makes it look so effortless, keeping the house clean, keeping my dad fed and happy, and always being the perfect mom. I want so badly to be able to do that. This week has been my spring cleaning week and I've been working hard. It made me realize that little things that are so easy to do every week turn into big things that you don't even want to do. Laundry being the top of that list! If I were to just do our laundry every week then I wouldn't have spent all day Monday and Tuesday working on it, keeping Jon's and my room clean is another thing. Once a week make sure everything is off the floor and vacuum. SO EASY! Yet, I seem to fight doing it!
When I was going through my postpartum depression I didn't want to do anything because I was depressed. Then I got on my anti-depressants and got more apathetic towards my daily routines, apathy was definitely better than depression so I worked with it. February 18 I got my Mirena taken out and within the week I felt much better. I stopped taking my antidepressants and suddenly apathy wasn't something I had to deal with because I suddenly cared about everything! I wanted to do, be, and act better!
I will keep updating on my progress on the weight loss and the cleaning!
