Hey, girl. Happy Tuesday! What are you going to do to take care of yourself today? What one thing? To feed your body, your strength, your stamina. Because your body is more than just a transportation system for your brain. And your physical health affects everything, really, everything. Your mood, your focus, your energy … all hugely impacted by your physical health. And role model too, right? Remember those small humans who are watching you to see how they should live.
Cardio? Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Every time. Or walk around outside the building for a fresh-air break.
Nutrition? Have tea instead of soda. Have salad instead of a burger and fries. Have an apple instead of a whatever from the vending machine.
Strength? Do eight squats by your desk when you start to feel sleepy. (cubicle squats, youtube) Or do milk-jug exercises when you get home tonight. Google it up, sister. So easy. Your kids will laugh and they will respect you for it.
It doesn’t have to be complicated. It does have to be intentional.
You deserve this. You deserve to be healthy.
I hate when I am the Queen of Excuses. (No time! I’ll just check email first. Just this ONE little sweet. And my favorite: I’ll start tomorrow.) Blech. Saps my energy AND my self-confidence. I am better than that. I will be better than that, starting now.
One thing. What one thing will you do to be healthier today? And how will that affect your family? Because your health affects them too.
I’m going to get 10,000 steps in today. I’ll take the stairs, park far away and probably have to go for a walk around the neighborhood tonight to make it happen, but it will happen. And I’ll feel better because of it.
How about you, Mamma? Your one thing?
Go, Mamma, go!!!
