Seeking to be a Healthy Mom

I am a stay at home mom to a wonderful little boy, who's about to be a year old. I need to get healthy so that I can be around for him. So that I can teach him a healthy and active life style. So that we can have another little one in the family some day.

I struggle with what does a healthy stay at home life style looks like.

I'm going to start small and see how far I can go.

I saw your message on the 30-Somethings with 100+ Pounds to Lose Team page and wanted to let you know that you are not alone. Even with older kids, I tend to be scatterbrained and disorganized, I forgot what it's like with a baby. Probably because I was suffering with severe untreated postpartum depression and to be honest, I don't really remember the first few years with my kids. Remember that you HAVE to take time for YOU in order to recharge, don't beat yourself up and lists are your friend! When I start to think I haven't done anything for the day, I write down every single little thing I've done and realize that I've done a lot more than I thought. For example..."did the laundry" turns into "picked up clothes, sorted clothes, put clothes in washer, put clothes in dryer, put 2nd load of clothes in washer, emptied dryer, folded clothes, put clothes away, put 2nd load of clothes in dryer....". When you think about it in detail, you do A LOT every day and that's not including keeping another human being alive! A book that helped me in keeping my sanity about the housework was Sink Reflections by Marla Cilley (see my first blog)...you should visit her website .... when you have a moment ...after all, you are a really busy woman!
