With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I want to speak specifically to the other moms out there.
This is for the Moms who continually tell themselves, “One day, I am going to eat healthy, work-out and lose weight. I just don’t have the time for it right now. I have too many other responsibilities.”
I totally get it.
You work full-time, you’re a chauffeur for your kids many activities and you want to be able to make healthy meals that the whole family will like - because who wants to cook separate meals for each family member??
But, it all just seems too overwhelming and you don’t even know where to start or where to find the time to figure it all out. I get it. I used to feel the same way.
When I was a single mom and sole breadwinner, the words “One Day” commonly came out of mouth. I know all too well that it’s hard to find time to focus on you. And when you finally do take some time for yourself, you probably have what I like to call mom-guilt. That nagging feeling that there are other things more important that need to be done than to work on you.
That’s part of being a mom. You put others first. I totally get it. But consider this. What I came to learn the hard way was that putting your own needs last is not helping the people who depend on you. Your choices and your actions are all affected by the way you feel about yourself, and it will carry over to the people around you and your relationships with them.
The only way you can give your loved ones the best of you, and not what’s left of you, is to make your needs a priority, so you can feel good about yourself and like what you see in the mirror.
If you’re feeling self-conscious about how you look and you’re choosing what to wear that day based on what will cover the muffin top and a part of you cringes at the thought of the upcoming tank top and shorts season, you’re so not alone. But that’s going to carry on into your thoughts and actions and ultimately your relationships.
I’m speaking from experience here. When I suffered from IBS, anxiety, a distorted body image, and was exhausted all the time, I hated how I felt and what I looked like and felt like a part of me was missing, and that carried over into my relationships.
The hardest part - is probably starting - to make “one day” Today. Once you do that, the rest falls into place. You will have overcome the biggest hurdle.
It may be hard because you’ve ‘started’ before and failed. Millions of other women have done the same. It could just be that you didn’t have the proper tools or that you were trying another diet, and when it was finished - then what?
It may be hard because changing lifelong patterns of eating seems way to hard and you don’t want to be stuck eating rabbit food, or you just don’t know where to start. I mean, there are hundreds of diets and different ways of eating if you search on google. But which one is right for you?
Everything that I’m talking about are the reasons why I created programs like the 14-day Body Reset.
I know for a busy woman or mom to be able to make her One Day, "Today" it has to be easy, it has to be do-able and it has to be able to work for the whole family. And it has to get results.
I know that if you follow the 14-Day Body Reset, you will know what to eat, when to eat and how much to be able to lose that stubborn weight and look in the mirror with confidence again, without the confusion or overwhelm.
