Day 20: 21-Day-Detox

Saturday, July 15, 2017

There are times when I give my all to something and yet, I still fail. It hurts to fail. Missed a workout again due to having no childcare and my mom was busy. I could have done a workout at home but I was not in the best head-space.

Learning to be a new single mom, has been a difficult adjustment. I am maintaining in some areas, but I am neglecting myself. I didn’t get 1 detox bath in this week and I had a glass of red wine or two. It was so absolutely delicious. I know it was against #ftdi but I needed a glass.

Although I worked out 4 times this week, I still feel like I am lettting my stress and emotions over-power my 21-day-detox. I know I am. I have always struggled with the way I handle stress, but it is my journey and I am no longer afraid to share it.

I spent the day playing and laughing with my daughter because she deserves that, but when I was alone, many tears were shed. Feeling lonely……..
