It was a long weekend, filled with fun. Yesterday I decided I just needed to stop and take care of myself.
We went to the beach yesterday and I got sunburned, badly, which is unheard of on the Oregon Coast. Today I’m in pain every time I move. I decided I just needed to make the choice and have a down day. Just a me day. I spent the day relaxing, drowsing, playing android games, and watching shows. My boys didn’t mind after the busy day yesterday they enjoyed cartoons and playing on their own in the playroom.
I can’t express how important it is for you to take a day to yourself sometimes. It is better to stop and relax than burn yourself out, be cranky for days, and run yourself ragged. You will be a better mom and feel better faster than if you keep pushing yourself.
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
