I'm Back!

Friday, November 02, 2012

So, it has been a while, but I am back. For the last 3 weeks, I have slowly been getting back to making exercise a priority in my life. I started out this year strong, but then allowed work and life to get in the way, and just accepted it.

My oldest twin asked me if I was having a baby the other night (yikes!). I said no, and she asked why is my belly fat. I just told her it was because I grew two babies in my belly, and that is why Mommy is now exercising. I do feel embarrassed/ashamed that my 5 year old baby is asking valid questions. I also try to be very aware of not calling myself fat. When I exercise, I tell the girls it's because Mommy wants to be healthy. I also have started to take one at a time out when I run. They can walk/run with me, but prefer to ride their bikes. Talk about motivation, trying to keep running to keep up with them! Especially my youngest twin, she is still a little shaky since we took off her training wheels, so just seeing her veer toward a parked car is enough to make me kick it into overdrive to avoid a crash.

So I need to focus on doing this not only for me, but for my daughters. For them to strive to be healthy in their lives, and to embrace being active. I am blessed that all 3 are extremely active, not only with extra curricular activities, but they love being outside and playing. I love that we live in a neighborhood where they have friends close by, wonderful parents that watch everyone's kids, and a not too busy street.

Here's to me hanging in there!

    Sounds like you are on the right track and great that you include your family and don't say "FAT". You are a great mom it sounds like. Keep it going and I have started and restarted for many years and I know I have learned so much along the way and I feel like you I am doing it to be healthy this time! emoticon
