I have been thinking of writing this for a while. Went back and forth. First of all I am not sure who reads what I write, second I don’t want anyone to think I am speaking just to moms. But thats what I am and this works for me. I truly believe everyone should workout. I think it is important for your health and really goes hand in hand with proper nutrition. But as a Mom. Why I work out are these key reasons.
(I have taken the last week off due to pulling something in my neck. I was told by my PT to do cardio that does not jar the upper body. Well… I took a break I want to heal, hoping to be back this coming Monday! Want to know something cool… I always come back now.)
You want to stick around for a LONG TIME
My dad passed at 51. Missed seeing weddings and 3 grand babies born. I refuse to do that. I will be here my kids are gonna be so sick of me
You do all day for everyone. Being a mom is hard and it never stops EVER! The stress is constant. But for 30 min when I am in my own world. Blasting whatever music I am in the mood for and letting it all out. It makes me a better mom, a better wife, a better person.
This is something I never really had. I never thought I was pretty or thin enough. I had a baby at 17 and gained a ton. I was always comparing myself to someone else. Now I do not give a shit. This may be getting older. But a big part is the body I have now, stretch marks and all I worked my ass off to get. That boosts you.
Showing my kids to care for themselves
My kids see every single day, what I do. They make good choices, sometimes they join me in my workouts.
Oh how I love sleep and now I am out like a light. Do I still get tired? Yep I have a ton on my plate. But when I sleep its good.
Taking care of Me
We do for everyone. Why aren’t we taking care of ourselves? Don’t you want to really be able to enjoy what you have?
Learning your body
Exercise is a great way to be in tune for your body. Knowing aches and pains, and what is working and what is not.
hahahaha what? I am 30. Not old, not young either. But I still get carded. BOOM! Taking care of yourself shows!!
It is just better. How often do you and your significant other do the deed? You should be active with them. its a big part of marriage that connection. My sex life got better when I started to take care of myself. Do it for that. Worth it…
DO IT FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THAT YOU ARE WORTH IT!
