Okay…So I am going to be honest with you all. I have completely let myself go.
I know that as mom’s, especially stay at home mom’s, we tend to put ourselves and our needs on the back burner. We are so worried about the kids, our home, all the chores, our relationships, etc. Taking care of ourselves tend to be at the bottom of the to do list.
I think it’s a bit more than that for me though.
It stole all my motivation. All. Of. It.
Not just my motivation to get up off of the couch. But my motivation for everything.
Well, it’s time to take the bull by the horns. It’s time to start taking care of me.
It’s time to start taking care of my body. Eating better. Taking better care of my skin. Exercising.
And drinking MORE water!!
I mean I drink water throughout the day, but not enough. Some days I wont even have a sip of water until dinner time. (Yikes! Seeing that typed out…)
This week that is going to be my focus. Before I have my
first only cup of coffee in the morning I am going to fill up my cute (and pink) tumbler with ice and water. I have to drink at least half of it before I can make my coffee.
I have a lot of hard work ahead of me if I want to be in a much better place mentally and physically. But, I know that if I put to much on my plate all at once, I wont succeed.
It really is all about baby steps.
So for now, I am starting my focus on drinking more water. And a few other things, but I will talk about them next week. As I am going to do this every week!
If you are trying to focus more on yourself or have any tips leave a comment! I’d love to connect with other mommy’s that are going through something similar.
Don’t forget to stop and enjoy the little things.
I have linked this post up with these awesome party’s!
