Oh boy..where do I start with this one! It has been a crazy, unexpected, life changing week for me…lets back up to last weekend…I posted about how I made baby food..and how I was looking forward to looking for ways to cut costs. This triggered something in me..all of the sudden i wanted to make my own laundry detergent, baby wipes..anything I could do to save money..so I ordered Dave Ramsey because I have heard nothing but good things about his program! (still waiting on that to come in the mail)…but anyway for some reason making Lanes baby food hit something inside of me that was just like hey…you can do this kind of thing..you enjoy it! and I did..I never expected to..but i did!. So the week went on..and I think it was Wednesday that I made a comment to my husband about how I wished I had more time with Lane..and jokingly was like if we could just budget better I could just be a stay at home mom….and to my surprise he was like..ok lets do it!…So we wrote it all out on paper to look at the figures and see if it was even possible financially..and we could..I mean I still planned on working like a shift a week just to keep my nursing skills up and have some sort of income but 1 day a week versus 5!…so even after we discussed this I still was like well.. lets just wait it out to make sure this is what we really wanna do because I had a really good job! I have only been a nurse like 3 years now and already had a management position.. i loved the people I worked with..this was like a dream job for me..and I was lucky to have it..but I was working 40 hours a week..with an hour drive both ways.. i was hardly getting to see lane..I was always stressed because I didnt have the time I needed to do everything like clean the house, workout, cook, pay bills…all that stuff..and i was just going crazy with the stress…I feel that I am very good with my time management and fitting everything possible in that I could..but it wasnt enough..so Thursday rolled around and my husband called and told me that the hospital in town could guarantee me once shift a week if I wanted to do it but I would have to commit now! AHHHH!! I wasn’t ready! I was expecting like another few months atleast! So I still wasn’t sure.. i was still thinking about it..then I was listening to a beachbody coaching call on the way home and it was basically saying you have to do what makes you happy…and to just go for what you want…i believe the direct quote that stuck out to me was “you can do anything you want to do..but you can’t do everything” and thats how i was feeling.. i felt like i couldnt do everything that i had going on..and because of that I couldnt get to my goals!…I felt like the call was aimed directly towards me..like it was a sign..and from what I have learned from my journey over the last 6 months with weightloss and beachbody coaching is that anything is possible..you just gotta go for it! SO I DID! The next day I put in my 2 weeks…I cried all day..and ate some M&M’s, a cookie, and 2 peices of pizza..haha oops!…I felt sick to my stomach…and still do sometimes..but then I look at that little precious baby of mine and know that I am doing what Is best for him and for me…and my husband for that matter! I thank God that I have this opportunity and I honestly dont believe it would even be possible without Beachbody….Being a coach for beach body has not only gave me that extra income to be able to do this..but has also given me the confidence and support to do this…There are several other coaches out there that have done exactly what I just did..and I would always think in my head..man one day I hope thats me…well i was done wishing..why can’t that be me?! Sharing my story and helping others get healthy and get happy is soooo much more rewarding than I ever though possible! and I have fallen in love..So not only am I very excited to spend more time with my baby..but also excited to have more time to commit to bettering myself and to helping others!
