Something has been drawing me back to this blog. It’s been a year since I’ve posted, and my life has changed so much since then. For some reason, there is a lot of fear in starting to write again. Am I relevant anymore? I mean, I’m a stay at home mom, not a full time fitness professional like I once was. I’m not anywhere near my goal weight or fitness level. Am I a fraud? Does anyone want to read anything that I have to say? Do I even have time to write? Well, fuck it. Here goes nothing. I’m gonna write as long as I have something to say, even if it’s scary to put myself back out there. I know that there are a lot of mamas out there going through what I’m going through, right? So maybe I’m relevant in a different way. I’m not even sure what the direction of this blog will be, it needs a new name, updates about my new life, new pictures in the header (I haven’t looked like that for a long time), etc. That all seems very overwhelming, so I’m just going to write and let it evolve on its own…I hope you’ll bare with me.
Here are some updates on my life. Riley and Quinn are 2.5 years old, and I just had ANOTHER sweet baby girl 7 weeks ago. Meet Tess Elizabeth Hopkins. She was born on September 29th at 9lb 4oz.
She is the sweetest, squishiest little baby, and I’m obsessed with her. I’m obsessed with all three of these girls, and some days I have to pinch myself because I just can’t believe that I get to be their mama.
Now, let’s be real, I have 2.5 year old twins and a 7 week old, shit is crazy at my house, things are hard and pretty overwhelming right now, but also really fun and full of cuteness and more love than I could ever have imagined.
After another c-section, I just got cleared for exercise last week, and now I’m working on my transformation back to feeling and looking like myself again. Here we go again…time to get serious and put the work in. I’m super motivated and excited about this journey, and I know that getting back to writing will hold me accountable for making this shit happen!!!
