I started and stopped various exercise programs but it didn't stick and I often used the excuse "I'm too busy" for not taking care of me. This past November my mindset changed completely and I decided that if momma isn't happy, no one will be happy. Being overweight affected my moods, my ability to parent and it was time for a change. I am still busy but in the midst of it all I have lost 45 pounds and changed my way of life.
My son is home with me full time and if I can't exercise during his naptime, I will take him out with me while I run with my jogging stroller. When I exercise at home, he is right by my side getting some moves in too. Being a busy mom doesn't mean neglecting myself and in this third year of parenting I am learning that I can be busy and balance my life too. I may not always complete my "to-do" list but dropping eating healthy and exercise off of the list is not an option! I am not only a busy mom but I am a fit mom too!
