    If you don't take any "me" time, then you don't have the energy you need to take care of your family, so I say "go for it!" and take the time you need. I subscribe to the notion of a bubble bath, no knocking on the door allowed, and just relax.

    Salaam Sis,

I was reading about Birdie and her weight loss success and she says something like: "If you take time away from everyone now, you will pay it back later (because you'll live longer)". Profound statement, isn't it? Besides, you can't take care of anyone else if you can't take care of yourself.

    DITTO! I need some too. If we don't get "me time" then you can't relax your brain a bit and "re-group".....that just leads to a lot of stress....and overeating or other bad habits that we're trying to overcome.

Good for you for taking the time this week. Maybe it WILL become a habit - one week at a time!

    That's right Karen...I completely understand. I think from our point of view (mom's of 3 sons) we need that. It seems that estrogen gets sucked right out of our bodies, and is replaced with testosterone. It's not only us that needs time, but our children need us to have time for ourselves. (make sense). The "me" time gives our bodies a chance to 're-estrogenize'. We need it....You go girl!!! kudos my sweet Karen! emoticon

    You go for it, girl! We ALL need "ME" time! No matter your age, status, or whatever!

Hugs! Beverly

    selfish is buying bags of oranges only for yourself because you just like citrus and not your children. they get canned ravioli or mac&cheese (know someone who does this)...

it is downright necessary to care for yourself. if some metime helps you to focus and stay calm, refresh & restore you, then you'll be better able to do all those other things :)

    Very true. It is always a struggle, but, a happier, more balanced, more healthy mom definitely makes up for it. Keep working for "ME" time, it is worth it!!
