I am a bad ass

I enlisted in the United States Marines when I was 17 I was always in shape and loved working out. Fast forward ALLOT of years and here I am 33 years old freshly divorced ( long story) single with 4.5y/o twin boys who are both autistic with various medical and learning disabilities and a 6 month old who was born with out a heart beat and has struggled ever since. I have very little help and the baby’s father is not physically involved in his care. I work full time as a labor and delivery nurse as well. I struggle to pay my bills on top of all the medical bills and child care cost that I have incurred due to having one child in the hospital and two at home.Between working, sleepless nights, countless doctors appointment and 12 yes I said 12 hospitalizations in my baby’s short six months my body and my self has been put on the back burner. I have found my self depressed, binge eating, out of shape and wanting a change, but needing the motivational help! My coworkers always say that I’m a bad ass and that they just are in awe on how I can come to work every day with a smile on my face even tho there are a million other things going on back home. I want to be able to do SOMETHING for Me and I have been eyeing the peloton bike for years and I just have not had the financial means available. My life goal is to be a great mother to my three boys but to be able to do that I need to be able to care for my self. I want to be able to look in the mirror and be happy with what I see! I want to be able to run around out side with my kids and not get winded because I’m so out of shape. I need the convenience of the peloton at my house since my son is medically fragile to go to child watch. And I need the amazing peloton community and motivation it encompasses to help me reach my fitness and weigh loss goals!
