One Year Ago

Today is May 17th.
Do you know what that means?
Well, today might just be a-regular-ol'-Thursday for you, but for me it's much more than that.

Today marks one year since I hit the pavement for the first time after having my sweet baby girl, and the day I became a mom on a mission: mission-get-my-body-back.

This morning, I laced up my shoes, put little-miss-Alivia in her jogging stroller and off we went on a celebratory run. Just the two of us. Just like we did 1-year-ago-today.

Only a few things had changed.

Alivia is now a big 20-plus pound "toddler" and pushing her was much-much harder than day 1.
This morning when I stepped on the scale I didn't see 169lbs like I did a year ago, no, I saw my goal weight: 135lbs exactly.

What a blessing the past year has been.

1 year, 1 marathon, 1 round of Insanity later and this mission-is-complete...

for now.
