Mamavation Monday: Baby Steps

Most of you know that I've been a bit out of the look for the past..well year or so. Life handed me some rougher times and my focus was on surviving those. If you've been reading here, you might have seen or maybe sensed that I'm coming out of the darker times and back into the light. I'm not rushing in but taking baby steps to get back to where I left off.

One of those baby steps is my home. I learned a long time ago that when my home is in chaos, more often than not so is my brain and my life. If you asked me right now about working out, I would probably snort, look around and ask where? That's right. There isn't a single spot in my home right now where I could work out. It's messy. It's overflowing and it's chaotic...and that's ok.

Yep, I said that's ok. Now, before you shake your head and think that I've finally gone off the deep end, let me explain. Just like the extra weight that I carry, my house didn't get like this overnight. So, just like I'm babystepping my way back into healthier habits, I'm babystepping my way around the house. Right now, I'm taking this :

and working on turning it into something more like this:

My thanks to for this picture!
Clearly this is a project that has a whole lot of babysteps! It's ok because I can do it. I'll start by making sure that I have a full bottle of water to go outside with me because that's the healthy babystep that I'm working on! 

~When life seems like everything is piling on, just remember that all of those things can also be removed again. Don't give up, just take it one piece at a time. ~



Having a plan is the best first step. I'm glad you're back and I know, I just know you'll be able to get it looking just as good as you want it to. I look forward to following your journey :)


Baby steps is a very good way to start. It's especially hard when it's coming "back into the light" but you will get there, a step at a time! hugs!


Baby steps is the best way to get things accomplished. I am so proud of you!!
