Each Day... Being a Better Mom... Feeling Confident...

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Each Day I see more positivity coming into me and feeling more confident in my health. The only set back I had this weekend was going to a pool party not being able to go in the pool cause no swimwear that fit and having only one outfit to wear that I felt ok . But instead of "emotionally eat" I over came it. I instead sucked it up and went and even thou I kept to myself it felt good to just be around people again.
I feel my sprit my body I don't know I guess I just am feeling better about making an improvement about me. And Making some time for me when I can. To get physically activity when I am about to just in my everyday life.
I truly am hoping this week I'll be able to find a few days I am able to workout and fit that in to my lifestyle. I want to show my little girl that it's not all about eating right but also adding in extra physical activity makes for a healthy lifestyle.
I don't want her to just see HUGE mommy but rather healthy happy mommy. Like someone somewhere said "I don't want my kids to see this unhealthy mommy but rather just old photos of her so they can ask "who is that" That's what I want.

I CAN DO THIS! Just each day I need to make that effort. TO MAKE that TIME for ME! Now that I'm a mom I know it's going to be that much more difficult. Because let's face it as a mom we don't make time for ourselves and there seems not to be enough time in the day for us. As Mom's we need to make time. Cause If we are not healthy how can we care for our children?

I just am going to work on one thing each day to improve myself. And I will get there :)

    So proud that you didn't emotionally eat! Also awesome attitude about wanting to make time for yourself. When I started to work out I felt super guilty for leaving at night even if it was after she went to bed because as a mom you feel like you need to be there 24/7 but I soon realized that I had to get healthy for myself and her and she would benefit from me going. There are days where it is hard because I have a baby (well she is 1 now so not a baby quite anymore) but I can't let it hold me back from making progress. Just keep it up and you will feel even better and better every day! Hugs!
