My Life Has Been a Rollercoaster During the Pandemic #covid19 #newlove #bloggingmom

It's been quite a long time since I've written anything, as it's been a crazy six months. I can say that it's been one of the most challenging times of my life... with the pandemic and working from home along with homeschooling my daughter. I don't think I've ever been so stressed, sad, angry, confused, and exhausted before. The whole situation was so overwhelming, and I'm sure plenty of other moms feel the same. I also recently came out of a 7 month relationship... it probably wasn't smart living together during a pandemic, and it seemed to have fallen apart. I somehow went into a new relationship that happened when I wasn't even looking for it. Anyways, it's time to focus on myself and my family and start a new chapter.

Since the pandemic with me working from home and being slightly depressed, I had put on 20 lbs. I'm not proud of myself for it, and I want my healthy lifestyle back. I was feeling fairly uncomfortable in my clothes, and hated when I look at myself in the mirror. Two months ago without me looking, I met my soulmate who loves me for who I am. Regardless, I want to drop weight for my health and sanity. 

He says I'm beautiful, well I want to feel it. Yes, I am pretty... nice smile and gorgeous eyes, but I'm self conscious when it comes to my mid section. Even though I've put on 20 lbs, I still have the hanging skin in the middle area. A spanx hides it most of the time, but living my life wearing that daily isn't realistic. 

My goal weight for the new year just after the holidays is 175 lbs. It's doable, and I want it. Since I met that special someone (I don't want to identify him quite yet), I've been eating more Mediterranean and healthy. My final goal is 150 lbs... and I'd be happier and healthier. 2020 has been a bit of a shitshow due to the pandemic, but I'm looking forward to 2021 being an amazing year with results.
