What do you want?

We make choices every day whether we're aware of it or not.

We choose to get out of bed.

We choose to wash our face.

We choose to get dressed.

We choose what to eat.

"But those aren't choices, we HAVE to do them to function!"


They ARE choices.

No one is forcing you to get out of bed, wash your face, get dressed, or eat.

You do them because you have chosen to be part of a civilized society that expects us to behave a certain way.

When I first began experiencing peri-menopause symptoms in my 40s, there were mornings where I didn't want to get out of bed, I didn't want to wash my face, get dressed, or eat.

But I did.


Well, for one, I chose to have kids and those kids needed to be washed and fed and taken care of. So I would get up and do the things I needed to do to take care of them, then I would go right back to bed.

As my girls got older, one of them didn't need me to do all these things for her anymore, but my special needs daughter did. This caused me to wallow in self pity some days as I dreaded having to continue doing the same things for her as a teenager, that I did when she was a toddler.

But as moms, we do whatever it takes to care for our kids, but why does that care not extend to US?

Self care is such a necessary part of our lives as women because we spend the majority of our lives taking care of others.

Self care isn't just the "now" thing to do, nor should we feel guilty for taking care of ourselves..

Self care is NECESSARY.

Self care goes beyond washing our face and brushing our hair.

It extends to nutrition, our home, and what's going on inside our bodies.

I've noticed that I enjoy life to the fullest when I've taken care of myself by choosing healthy foods, supplementing my body to alleviate aches and pains, and creating a home that makes me smile when I wake up each day.

What is it that YOU want most?

For me, at the beginning of 2022, I wanted to stop the menopause weight gain. I felt like I was losing control of myself, my identity, my desires, my dreams.

I made a choice to focus on what I wanted most at that moment: lose weight.

I made a choice to discipline myself: consume less calories than I was expending.

Once I was clear on what I wanted, the daily choices became easier and easier.

As I began to lose the weight, I noticed other changes taking place.

I was sleeping better.

I had more energy throughout the day.

I was no longer wallowing in self pity.

I looked forward to shopping for clothes.

I felt desirable and feminine.

I actually wanted to get out and do fun things.

I enjoyed caring for my daughter.

My husband began liking me again as he commented "the old Gabi is back"

That put a smile on my face.

I felt empowered.

I discovered a new purpose for my life.

I realized it began by taking care of ME first.

I wanted to lose weight, but I gained a whole new lifestyle I didn't think was possible.

So what is it that you want most?
