I’ve mentioned several times that this is the summer of me. I’m sure in a lot of ways that sounds selfish.
My intentions are anything but.
Me in my husbands t-shirts, yoga pants and a top-knot, overweight, out of shape and feeling overwhelmed isn’t making anyone’s day better. You can trust me on that one.
Sometimes I feel like I pulled off the biggest sham of all time. I wore outfits, straightened my hair, went out, exercised and was full of confidence. A far cry from the woman I have become. Somewhere along the way I lost a part of me. I became a mom– and that is amazing and wonderful and fills my heart–but I am a great many things. I feel that it is really important for my children to see me as mom, but also as a strong, confident person.
It turns out what is good for me, is good for them and vice-versa. I’m more invested in preparing healthy meals. We sit down more as a family. They are developing healthy habits and I’m dropping weight and gaining my confidence back.
With that confidence, I have added outfits and a trip to the salon for a hair cut. I started reading again, taking time to exercise, date my husband, meet up with my girlfriend.
One thing I rarely remember is to take my vitamin. My kids are so obsessed with these NatureSmart Gummy Vitamins, Gummy Vitamins in Disney Shapes for Eleanor and Gummy Vitamins in Marvel Shapes for Quinn, that they beg every morning for theirs. Their obsession is helping me make sure I’m taking my daily vitamin as well.
Yesterday Quinn said, “I want to do T25 so I can be strong like mom!” and I couldn’t be more proud of the example I am setting for them. I am modeling healthy habits and that is nothing to feel guilty about.
