Fighting the creep

I have three children and would like to model healthy eating and exercise habits for them.

I have three children and would like to model healthy eating and exercise habits for them. I also would like to model 'healthy selfishness' -- or rather, I would like to show my children that we all need to ensure that we not only 'do for others' but 'do for ourselves.' In the past, when I had an hour or two without kids I would do family errands like groceries and cleaning up around the house. The result was not only that my emotional battery had lost a lot of charge, but I had totally stopped exercising! With the sedentary lifestyle came neck and back problems. After the birth of my last child, they became so severe that I learned to change a diaper while lying on my back on the floor. Maybe the best thing to happen to me was when the constant pain from my neck forced me to start doing PT and exercising. After 3 months, I feel MUCH better. Now if I skip a day, I feel my neck start to tighten up. It's my lesson in put yourself first so that you are able to take care of others as for a while there, I really wasn't able to take care of anyone else or even myself!!
