2 years ago, I was exactly where I am today…well sort of. My boys are 2 years apart, almost to the day. The Little Man was born February 21 and Baby O made his appearance February 19. If you want to get technical, they were actually born on the exact same Sunday, 2 years apart. I’d say we couldn’t have planned it better but it was much more of a fluke than anything.
The big difference is that 2 years ago, I was just beginning to come out of my postpartum depression fog. I’d been lost in it for nearly 6 months, not taking care of myself, and just doing the bare minimum to survive each and every day.
It was around this time that I was rediscovering my love of running and along with it, the positive therapeutic mindset it provided me. It ultimately helped me overcome PPD and along with that, get my health in check. I’ve talked a lot about this over on my other blog.
I worked out regularly, ate properly and not only got through my second pregnancy 20 pounds lighter than the first but to this day, I have not had a recurrence of PPD, have remained active and have plans to run a half marathon in 2.5 months (eeeeekkkkkkk!!). I’ve made so many positive changes in my life and I have to say that I’ve never felt better.
What about you? Where were you at 2 years ago?
