Where I Was 2 Years Ago

It’s Day 4 of the August Healthy Living / Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge and today’s question is:

“How have you changed in the past two years?”

Two years ago I had a very energetic and curious little toddler who I had a VERY hard time keeping up with.  I was completely out of shape and the thought of doing something to fix that never even crossed my mind.

In August of 2010 my husband and I decided to try for baby number two and on August 28th, I found out I was pregnant! That was easy!

Soon after my second son was born, I took my boys for a walk around the neighborhood in the double stroller.  I was so exhausted, I almost didn’t make it home. I was only a few blocks from my house but I just wanted to sit on a park bench and cry. Defeated.

Through the powers of twitter (lol) I found Pamela Kramer and the #100DayBurpeeChallenge! I started it at the beginning of August 2011 and I’m pretty stinkin’ proud to say that I finished all 100 days!

Pamela was part of this awesome group of women called Mamavation and sometime during those 100 days of burpees I joined up with them and officially became a Sista of the Mamavation Sistahood!

I’m so happy that I did, they are awesome, encouraging, empowering and pretty freakin’ hilarious. Since joining them I have completed five 5K’s and learned so much about exercise and healthy living.

Looking back, I can honestly say that these last 2 years have been great and I am pretty sure the years will just keep getting better!
