I want to be a healthy mom, a fit mom, a strong mom…I want to treat my body the way God intended and I want to teach my children how to be healthy and take care of what God has given to them. Its a commitment worth making!
I didn’t always have this mentality, I was content where I was…I was happy being over weight and eating what I wanted and if we are going to get real for a few minutes; I loved chocolate and french fries more than I loved myself. That is deep stuff. Once baby number three arrived something changed, maybe I wised up…maybe I finally realized just what my choices were doing, not just to myself but to my family. As a stay at home mom I cook the majority of the meals in the house, I control what is bought at the grocery store and what items find there way into the pantry. I control what goes into my husbands lunch box and on the lunch and dinner plates. It was like a choir of angels sang and I realized that being healthy and having a healthy family starts with me.
Healthy means being able to walk away from the chocolate and french fries, exercising more and cutting out things that are not doing my body any good, and certainly are not doing my family any good. Being healthy means creating new habits and a new way of life. NO DIETS here, we are changing our lives not just starting something we can quit later. My goal is to make us healthy for life!
