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……..

Day 17: 21-Day-Detox 

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 

I am so thankful for my mother. Without her, I would not be able to go to these workouts.

Being a single mom is rough. It is still very new to me and not easy deal with at times. I am deep breathing instead of yelling more often, focusing on self-love, and going through the stages of grief at my own pace.

Day 13: 21-Day-Detox 

Saturday, July 8, 2017

I missed another workout. I feel like a failure but I decided to go out with friends and missed my alarm. But, a kid free night was just what mama needed. I wish I would have went a worked out this morning, but sometimes you just need to spend time with your girls and dance.

Day 12: 21-Day-Detox 

Friday, July 7, 2017

I missed my workout.

I got up, put on my leggings and sneakers, woke up my daughter, got her dressed, dropped her off at childcare, went to work and planned to go to The Camp at 11. I forgot that there are many times you can go and workout, but there is a block of time where they are closed.
