This post is going to sound a little like a sales pitch, but I promise I’m not selling anything. It’s just the story of how I got my life back.
This is me (and my beautiful friend Allie) one year ago.
I was tired. Seven kids, homeschooling, working part-time, and traveling was beginning to take its toll on my life. Almost every Sunday at church someone would ask me if I was “okay” or feeling under the weather.
I was totally exhausted, suffering from weekly migraines, back pain (from a previous surgery) taking ibuprofen like it was candy, and consuming caffeine like it was going out of style.
In April of 2012 I returned from a trip to California completely worn out. I felt like I could sleep for a year! I knew something in my life needed to change immediately because I could not go on living in a constant state of exhaustion and pain.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing how I gave up soda, stopped taking ibuprofen, got rid of my back pain, cured my migraines, lost twenty pounds, and feel better than I have in twenty years. The awesome thing about it is, that if you are suffering from “mom exhaustion” you can do it too! It’s really very simple.
