Project Stroller Strides:
Mama On A Mission



Okay, Yesterday I posted about my first 12 months of Stroller Strides, my accomplishments and my new plan. Today I am here to start blogging officially about Body Back.

I debated starting a separate blog dedicated to my Body Back Journey but honestly..... We have all discovered I have commitment issues. My ADD gets me all ramped up to start these great projects and in the end all I am left with is a mountain of half finished failures.  I am tired of abandoning things and tired of having to face my nearest and dearest when my interest or energy in yet another project fizzles out.  The safest way to do this is to keep Body Back as part of my Project Stroller Strides series and keep it right here.  SO for those of you who come here to laugh at my Mishaps and shake your heads at my Musings and cheer on my Milestones.... feel free to tune out when I go on about Body Back or..... Instead join me.  Find a Body Back Class, or a Stroller Strides or make a commitment to get your sweat on along with me!  For some of you this might be your chance to take some great advice from my new favorite company Lululemon and "Do one thing each day that scares you" Trust me, I know that exercise can be scary!!

Today is my last day to splurge but honestly.... Except for the half a bottle of wine that will be calling my name to finish tonight.... I don't much feel like Death By Chocolate Cake or Ice Cream or even a Cheeseburger.... So I am not going to force myself to indulge in something I am not in dire need of just because it's my last chance!  I may have to give myself a day or a night where I can indulge my need for a bit of liquid courage. Hubby is on the road all the time and bath/bed-time is about the end of my rope most days so.... For the children's sake {haha} I may have to allow myself a glass of wine once a week. We shall see...

The very best part of joining the Stroller Strides family has been Sisterhood in Motherhood. The unconditional support. The loud and resounding cheers of encouragement. The understanding and empathetic hand on a shoulder when needed....I know that tin order to get to the other side of this Body Back Journey I am going to have to rely on my Sister Mamas to push me, support me and encourage me. I also know that I am not the only Mama who feels this way about her Stroller Strides family; and those of us who blog, tweet or otherwise share our Stroller Strides and Body Back experiences, are so touched and motivated by strangers words of encouragement. So..... I will be adding a link to each Body Back post for the next 8 weeks. I encourage you to take this journey with me and share your ups, downs, challenges and triumphs with us. Link your blogs to A Mothers Musings and I promise to support your journey with all of my heart!

Ready?? Here We Go.....
