Being a fit, happy, healthy mom really sets the whole foundation for you and your kids.
I think sometimes we get so busy making sure that everyone else is taken care of that we put ourselves last on the list. I have certain things that I do every day that to me are “non-negotiable” meaning someone can’t talk me out of doing these things because I know that if I am not full I will have nothing to give to anyone else.
It is not just about being physically fit that keeps us going but also about being emotionally fit.
Emotional fitness is a “muscle” that also needs to be developed so when you are having a tough day everything else seems effortless.
I start my day with a few “I AM” statements:
I am Loving
I am honest
I am fit
I am sexy
I am an awesome mom
I am playful
I am healthy
I am financially fit
I am creative and on and on…
Then I have my code of conduct:
I will stay true to myself
I will help those who want to be helped
I will appreciate something in nature
I finish by saying my morning prayers
I encourage you to create your own “I am” statements not just for you but to help your kids as well.
You will notice you are truly FIT for the day!
