Being a Mother is the best feeling in the world. My kids are my absolute world. Having little ones, keeps us on our toes like never before, and these two little munchkins keep me on the go “from son up to son down” (excuse the pun) but it’s so true.
And although I wouldn’t have it any other way, my general well being has taken a back seat since having my boys. You know the situation, the night time feeds see you picking at things in the fridge, midnight munchies etc. The daytime is a whirlwind of work, cleaning, washing, just the general daily to do lists. Again seeing you grab something quick on the go in between. Don’t get me wrong we’ve always eaten nice hearty healthy meals, but one thing I have always lacked is fruit.
I haven’t eaten half as much of my 5-a-day as I should do. The only time I ate bucket loads of melons was when I was expecting! I do eat these as a snack now but I should be eating a lot more fruit than I have been.
So in a bid to get fit again and make me feel more happy with myself, I am concentrating on the weight loss and being more healthy. I don’t starve myself to drop a few pounds, just simply watching what I eat. I tend to plan out each week using different SW recipes to keep it interesting. This prevents myself from getting bored with the same old dinners, of which I’m sure you can relate.
I have also been using my fitbit and going on a lot more walks. This is great because I can download and track all of my progress on my mac or iPhone and even log my daily food plan and water intake too. So it just gives me that little extra motivation.
And something that I have never really even considered before, is taking vitamins. I think multi vitamins are just what I need to give my system a boost. At least it gives me piece of mind that I am getting all of the essential vitamins and minerals. I’m currently trying the Multivitality Gold from Healthspan and so far so good. They have a huge range of supplements to suit individual needs. They have professional, friendly staff to ensure you get exactly what you require. So hopefully I will feel the benefits soon, after all, I need all the energy I can get with my pair!
Are you trying to be more healthy? Do you take vitamins? Or maybe considering them?
