For My Future Children

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

A commercial came on today for a new diet scheme and I started wondering why it is so hard for me and many others to eat healthy. There are two families that I work for where the kids love fruit and veggies and usually prefer it rather than junk food. Why is it so hard for me to choose fruits and veggies than carbs? I snacked on carbs all my life and that is te snack of choice for my family. I have to take respinsibility for the way I eat and live my life now. More than that, in a few years I will have kids of my own and they will learn there eating habits from me.
It is a huge responsibilty raising a child. Besides wanting them to grow up to be happy and in God's will I want my babies to know how beautiful and amazing they are. I want them to enjoy fruits and veggies and also gelato on occasion without any guilt. I want my children to enjoy being outdoors, like being active in whatever activity they enjoy and also be thankful for the days where they can just sit on the couch without feeling lazy.
This is what is motivating me to eat better and be active today. What is motivating you?

    I think it's the same way for a lot of us. Today my motivation is realizing how many years I let pass while eating unhealthy and being overweight.
