Dear Summer Body,
Last month, I booked my family’s summer vacation, what will be our first getaway as a party of four since the birth of our baby girl last summer.
We’ll be returning to the same state we traveled to with my son a few years ago, and I couldn’t be more excited about seeing my kiddos play in the sand together while taking in the beauty and wonder of the water and waves. Since having children, I’ve loved nothing more than seeing Christmas and vacation through their eyes.
With tears streaming and legs flailing, I tiredly looked on as my little boy melted down in the middle of our kitchen floor, after a long day of birthday parties and playdates. Truthfully, I felt exactly like he was acting.
At the end of a long day full of tantrums, snuggles and poop on the wall (my day today), does this scene sound familiar?
In my last blog post, The Four-Letter Word that Spells Weight Gain, I covered the pitfalls of dieting and why it’s not a sustainable (or enjoyable) way of life for busy, overwhelmed moms – or anyone for that matter.
So, what’s the four-letter word you need to replace your shame-fueled diet thoughts with? What shines a light into the darkness of your negative self-talk? What helps you to live more…and as a result, weigh less?
Know what’s even harder? Being a mom…ON A DIET.
As if we don’t have enough to keep track of on our never ending to-do lists, there are people in this world who have the GALL to ask us, on top of everything else, to keep track of carbs, proteins, and fats. Wha-what!?
But it’s March, and you know what that means…
