This morning I was feeling sad and sorry for myself. Yesterday I decided it would totally be a FABULOUS idea to jump on the scales whilst in the midst of a ‘body blues’ crisis. Evidentially this wasn’t a good idea and it subsequently exasperated my feelings 10 fold. So today, I woke up and squeezed into some ‘active wear’ ; the old faithful LJ tights and a singlet. Not because I was feeling particular keen on the idea of partaking in any sort of ‘active-ness’ but more so just in case I happened to go for a walk (with Chai in hand, I think more akin to a ‘stroll’) post kindy drop off. At Least if I was wearing active wear it would be counted as legit exercise right? Anywho. Mid funk, I sat down with my babies in my lap while they had their brekkie yogurts (yup I can hear the older generations scoffing – oh the laziness of squeeze packet yogurt – yup that’s me this week, and more than likely for the next cause doing the home made yogurt route ain’t high on priority right now. And all it took was for Nylah to give me that super cheesy grin she does and it hit me that they don’t care what size I am. They really only want a mum that’s happy and loving life.
- Health – your body is just the vessel. Your health and wellness within are priority.
- Time – the time spent with my family & friends is far too valuable to be feeling self conscious.
- Food – eat good food, enjoy it and do not feel guilty. What is the point in travelling through life torturing ourselves on a diet even rabbits would get sick of ?
- Nature – get amongst it. There’s nothing more satisfying to the soul than emersing yourself in nature. Breathe fresh air, sit and listen to the creeks flowing, the birds chirping and the trees rustling. You may even feel inspired to go for a hike (purely to enjoy the journey nothing more!).
