Taking one step to take care of myself always seems to lead to another. If I am making the investment in myself to eat healthy and to loose this stubborn baby weight, then why not brush my teeth for that extra 30 seconds, why not put some moisturizing sunblock on in the morning, why not brush my hair properly instead of just sticking it in a pony tail without bothering? And the more I take care of myself the more I feel I am worthy of being taken care of.
It's odd, I spend almost all my time making sure that my children and husband are taken care of. I make them eat veggies and I make sure they have clean clothes and all their check ups and teeth cleanings and that my husband has clean ironed shirts, but I never take the same care when it comes to me. Heck, I have a habit of letting my boys use the jeans I am wearing to wipe their hands or faces clean of food and dirt if there is no cloth or tissue handy. Do other mothers do this? I suppose I should treat myself better than a dish rag.
Anyway, just finished my strength training even though I am absolutely exhausted from no sleep last night on top of one hell of hike. And now to finish watching Dr. Strangelove with my lovely husband and then to bed and hopefully some proper sleep!
