I can’t believe it, but it’s been officially 1 month since I left my job to become a SAHM. In some ways it feels like I only left yesterday- in others it feels like I left years ago.
Since making this change there have been ups and downs, good days and bad days, many memories made, and lots of laughter. On the hard days- I remind myself of how hectic our lives were before I made this change and how hard it was for me to find a work/life balance that worked for me. I’m definitely happy with my decision, but I’ve realized that whether you work outside the home or stay at home- being a parent is hard, period.
In other news- my no cheese challenge is OVER. I wasn’t perfect, but cutting out cheese for a few weeks certainly made me aware of how much I had been eating. Unfortunately, my no cheese challenge didn’t really change the numbers on the scale so tomorrow Mike and I are going to start the 21 day fix. I’m part excited and part dreading it.
I hope everyone else is doing well. More posts to come from me soon– including my real feelings about our dog after having a baby, the 21 day fix, and more entries in the SAHM diaries.
