My guess is you're pretty awesome.
You bend over backwards to take care of everything. Kiddos, husband, sports, appointments, birthday parties.
But let me ask you a question...how are you doing? How do you feel? How are your clothes fitting? How tired are you?
How in the heck are you supposed to get healthy when you're constantly solo parenting and in a state of survival mode?
Is it always going to be this hard?
No, no it's not.
Don't buy a new gown.
Fit into one you already have.
You meant to start a diet ages ago.
Now you're running out of time.
Don't worry, I gotcha!
But you don't have anymore time to lose.
And who is this sweary, yet awesome woman who sheds a little tear everyday
she isn't eating Korean food straight outta Korea?
Let me introduce myself.
In my 20s, while waiting tables in Chicago I met someone, fell in love and the next thing I knew I was selling every last one of my belongings to join him on an adventure around the world. No kidding. I carried everything I owned on my back through Peru, Chile, Argentina, Australia, Thailand, India, and the European Union. For a year!
I guess that makes me well suited for a life of moving every handful of years. I always look forward to discovering the new restaurants and grocery stores at our next duty station. Will we live near a Trader Joes this time? Nope, never.
As my kiddos get older it gets harder to pick up and start over all the time. Mostly because we accumulate so much shit when we have kids. Am I right?
I knew if I was going to make it in this highly demanding role as a Military Spouse I was going to have to figure out how to not completely lose myself in this lifestyle. How to not over-volunteer, over stretch or spread myself too thin. Which I see so many others doing.
I have found a way to follow my dreams, stay a healthy weight, and fight off exhaustion while having healthy boundaries. Not everyone will understand but it's not your job to make them. This is your life, your health, and you don't get any of these days back.
