There is a constant battle to between being fit, looking good and having fun. Being fit makes you look good and sometimes having fun is not the most ideal way to look good.
They say you are supposed to drink half your body weight in water. This is already a lot for someone who likes her water in ice cubes only. Working out is cool, but then my hair is another battle. What about the days when I am too tired? Between working and being a mother who has time for themselves? Other than super woman of course.
After a million excuses and a little whining I walked into the gym and the trainer told me a quote. “If it is important you will make time, if it is not you will make excuses.” I decided that it is time out for excuses. After that day at the gym, I made a note with that faithful quote and stuck it to my bathroom mirror. Now every other evening as the sun is going down I run the 3 flights of stairs that are in my building. Up and down 20 times. Typically I am drenched in sweat and barely able to walk. I drink my water in an oversized water bottle and I let my daughter take her chalk and draw pictures while she waits on me.
My summertime swag is fully activated and I realized that I am in fact super woman. Cheers to a little Mommy Motivation!
