No longer pregnant: Living Well & Fit

Aug 1st

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a great day. Many things have been happening, including me having a newborn! I would be lying if I said my labor and delivery wasn’t difficult. I was in labor for 10 hours when my husband and I had to make the decision for me to ultimately have a C-section. My son was born weighing 9lbs and 1.3oz. I am so glad that he is here, and he is such a blessing to my family. Even though I had a painful and somewhat difficult labor, I would not change it for anything. I learned a lot of things about myself (how much pain I can endure in particular). My faith in God and my love for my son is what got me through (not to mention I had a great support team by my side). I’m overjoyed that it happened, but I am happy that it is over. I learned that being “Well & Fit” is not just a temporary thing for me, it is a way of life. Now that I am no longer pregnant it is something I can really put into play, but I am also guilty of not practicing it enough while I was pregnant. Granted I had a lot of aches and pains in my last trimester, but looking back, I can truly see what I could have done different.

As I continue to heal from the birth of my son, I want to look to the future the “Well & Fit” way. It’s time to become stronger, mentally, physically, and spiritually. This event has made me feel so many emotions. I have been happy, sad, angry, irritated, etc… but it is just another hurdle to overcome, and I will overcome. I will be stronger. I will be WELL & FIT.

Be blessed.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.
