Hi my name is Deanna and I can be a royal B when I don’t get my way 💁🏼♀️. Yesterday — plans made — a full agenda of to do’s to take care of me from 5-6am, going to bed excited, workout clothes laid out, ahh, the feeling of a fresh start.
Then 11, 1, and 5am wakeups for babe, where 5 was the start to the day.
I feel terrible to admit the way I felt — annoyed, frustrated, resentful.
Before Brennan left for work, he asked if I was going to be ok. My reply, I’ll be fine tonight when I can go to bed.
See, there’s that list of priorities we all have, daily tasks, and plans.
And all of that quickly, without question, HAS to get shoved aside when you have someone depending on you.
Why I press play?
Why I sweat?
Because I love myself.
Because right now, after just 30 minutes of moving my body, I could literally break into tears for how much freaking better I feel.
I feel grateful. I feel excited. I feel happy.
It’s ok to do it for an outfit, a bathing suit, or for whatever reasons may appear surface level.
But once you decide to do it for YOU, just you — that’s when it becomes a need, a ‘get to’ vs ‘have to’. Girl if you can, and your Monday started like mine (I hope it didn’t) just move today. I swear to you, and you can come at me if I’m wrong, but everything will change when you do it just because you can.
And just because you’re choosing to love yourself.
Because that should be enough.
And good lord, those endorphins! Bring on a day of Mommin’, working, meal prepping, and OWNING this day!
