new way at looking at life...

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

So i have to say, as much as things have changed in my life so many things have stayed the same! My weight is back up to what it was before i had luke since i no longer have tons of morring sickness to keep it off! Every day my wellness is on my mind but i push it aside and of course use my son needing my attention too put off working out or even cooking healthy meal and sitting on my butt looking at facebook and eating a box of swiss cakes as a meal when i get a few mins! I have no idea how to keep myself motivated anymore. The time is going to pass anyways so why can i just try and be a little better everyday? My son has so much energy and is soooo healthy! i just want him too be that way forever and i cant keep my self motivated too do anything about it. Its a sad state to be in!

    Sounds like you have a really good reason to be healthy with trying to keep up with your little one. Just take it a day at a time and make small changes. When you are a mommy of a little one you can't have an all or nothing attitude. Celebrate small victories. Find a way to exercise with him. Find healthy easy snacks that you like - it's much better to eat cheese and nuts than Swiss Cakes. Salads are easy now with the prepackaged lettuces mixes and deli meat. Rotisserie chickens are cheap in my area. Fruit is easy to grab and eat as are fresh veggies. Have them with some commercial salsa or hummus. Sugar Free jello and sugar free pudding are great snacks. Low fat, low carb yogurt. You can do this!! I believe in you!

    It sounds like your overwhelmed? Pick something you'd enjoy that is also healthy and make a plan to do it. It could be getting out of the house and strolling with your baby. If the weather is bad then maybe an indoor mall. Take small steps and build from there. Buy a favorite food that you like to eat and is healthy. Fresh strawberries? Crisp apples? Each thing you do will get you back on track. You can do it! emoticon

    You want to be strong for Luke and eating Swiss Cakes isn't going to help you get there! My daughter is almost 11 years old, and if I could go back in time, the one thing I'd do differently is realize that my kid's health is going to depend less on what I do for her than on what I do for myself. Your child learns by watching you. If your kid sees you eating a box of Swiss cakes as a meal, he will think that's an acceptable thing to do. If you want him to grow up healthy and strong, YOU have to model those behaviors for him. As far as exercise goes. You can use him as a weight! Practice lifting him up over your head and down again. Do that 20 times a day, and you'll build some fabulous muscles while giving your son a great time. Then don't put him in a stroller, but WEAR him (there are tons of methods for this--Google to find the best one for you), and take him for a walk every day. If it's too cold outside, walk him around the house, up and down stairs if you have them. Anyway, this is just stuff that I really, really wish someone had told me when my baby was still a baby!
