Do you think about your kid(s) future often? Motherhood can be overwhelming and for me being a working at home mom I don’t ever get a minute to myself. I go to every appointment and run all errands with my Izzy. One day as I stood in front of the mirror feeling stressed, smothered by motherhoods 24-7 duties and feeling unattractive from my slow and steady weight gain, I asked myself a question. I somehow found a moment for self reflection.
Do I want Isabella to look at herself and think like this or do I want her to have a healthy and stress free life?
The answer is simple, I want her to be healthy and stress free.
Of course I want my child to feel comfortable in her skin & lead a healthy lifestyle mentally and physically. So if I wanted this for her, why wasn’t I modeling it? Right then I decided I would own my tomorrow. I get up every morning at 5:30 am and have gotten my butt back into the gym. I deserve that alone time. My body needs my heart rate to increase during a workout and not just the million times a day I swear my kid accidentally almost sends herself to the ER. Do you feel like you save your kids life on a daily basis? Please tell me I’m not alone on this one.
Guys I’m shocked, but I LOVE going to the gym at 5:30 in the morning. I had gone in the past, also early in the morning, but I wasn’t enjoying it like I am now. I love it because I’m showing my child healthy living. I enjoy the endorphins and energy boost that keeps me going throughout the day. Most of all I’m loving my alone time. Mentally it gives me a time during the day that I don’t have to worry about anyone but me and that is something that I really want to teach Isabella one day. She needs to take care of her whole self.
That single question changed how I’m living my life! It’s going to change how my child grows up and how she thinks about me.
So I’m asking you, what question have you asked yourself that changed your life in a positive way?
Is it time for you to make a big change?
How are you going to own your tomorrow?
I’m encouraging you to join in on the conversation. Tell me how you will own your tomorrow. #ownyourtomorrow
