Day 481: Blogging Our Way To Success

In this wonderful world of virtual socialization I have come to discover that there are many women out there who are just like me, struggling through the same feelings and experiences.  I have been fortunate enough to discover two fellow travelers who are just at the beginning of this journey and although neither of them have quite as far to go as I do its nice to see someones story from start to finish.  I have added links to both their spaces to the right of this page incase you wish to take a peek!  I know that I will read them daily and look for words of encouragement on the pages and hopefully offer the same in return.

Yesterday was another normal day for me, all the usual mundane things that are when you are a stay at home mom.  The highlight of my days as of late is my late afternoon trips to the gym.  I find myself looking forward to this time and am hoping this means I might become a gym junkie of sorts!
