Happy Saturday to y'all!
My boy and I are rocking and rolling away this week. Now that we've put that nasty sinus infection behind us (cause NOBODY got time for that), we got back in the swing of things, especially in the gym. No more jogging, no heavy lifting, but we both are better off getting a little exercise daily.
And you know what? You are, too! Whether you get in a two-mile walk or a yoga class or a 20 minute sweat in the gym, our sleep, digestion, stress management, hormone regulation, and, of course, waistlines are better off with a little physical activity.
As motherhood approaches, I know this is an area of my life I will NOT sacrifice. In order to be my best self and best mother to my boy, I will make time for my health and physical activity. With that said, baby daddy needs to get that stroller together today...one of many tasks of the honey-do list this weekend.
Whatever you are up to this weekend, remember that I'm here supporting YOU in your journey to a healthier, happier you. If my 35-week pregnant self can keep and stay moving every week, I'm quite sure you can, too. We can all make the excuses- I have no time, I don't have a gym membership, I'm too tired, I have too much work to do around the house- but this is an area of your life that should be a priority. Show yourself some love. Your family, coworkers, spouse, and all those around you will benefit from a healthier, happier you!
