Trying to be a boss, a good mother, and wife while somehow finding a little me time in there too became a real struggle.
Ok, it wasn’t just a struggle, to be honest it was harder than anything I’ve ever done before. It felt impossible and I was drowning.
Yes, I’d heard and even seen the stories from so many thousands of my mumma clients, but I guess I just thought it was something that would never happen to me..
Well I certainly got a crash course and motherhood was definitely a shock to my system.
WITHIN A FEW MONTHS OF HAVING TAJ, I WAS FEELING EXHAUSTED, OVERWHELMED, UNATTRACTIVE, UNPRODUCTIVE AND SOME DAYS QUITE HONESTLY LIKE A FAILURE IN MOST AREAS OF MY LIFE.
How could I possibly continue my mission to transform the diet and fitness industry and ensure every woman could look and feel their best while getting off the diet cycle for good? Would I have to give it all up?
I desperately needed to find time for everything in my busy lifestyle so I wouldn't have to choose between my career or family.
I can’t believe I used tell my mumma clients to choose their hard and just to ‘make it happen’ if they wanted it badly enough. All, without any real experience of just how exhausted and time poor motherhood can be. OMG, if I could just go back in time and show the old me how clueless she was.
As a new mum, I was feeling behind on my work, too tired to exercise and just so frustrated at being exhausted all the time.
Being time poor and tired all day was tough, but it wasn’t the only thing I was battling.
The thing is, my body was breaking down.
