Today marked my 1 year MOPS anniversary. I was 12 weeks pregnant when I first walked in to a MOPS meeting. I knew no one and no one knew me but 1 year later I walked into a room full of friends. The kids really enjoy going to MOPS and I thank God for this amazing community of mothers. I pray that I will be a blessing in this group for as long as God allows me to be part of it.
I found this photo when I was looking for an illustration for this post. This is me around 2 years ago:
I am purposely positive about living a healthy life. If it takes writing down reminders, I will not let myself give up on making good choices. I learned not to expect perfection out of my fitness. This week for example I find myself trying to get back to our normal routine and exercise wasn't as intense as I'd like. There's always next week. I will continue to live a healthy life and being forgiving to myself is a great part of it. So I didn't reach my goal. There's always next week. I can always make good choices and staying positive is the greatest choice of all.
I pray that you are having an amazing beginning of the year. If you're curious about fasting, check out Jentzen Franklin's resources.
