Health knowledge made personal
Iâ??m a mom of two trying to balance family, work, fitness, fun and a healthy lifestyle. Our lives (and schedules) are incredibly hectic, like many families, and every day I have to make a conscious decision to be the healthiest me I can be on that given day. Sometimes it means getting up at 4:45am to take a class at the gym, because it's the only time I can squeeze in a workout. Or it means taking the time at night to pack a healthy lunch for myself (and my kids) for the next day so none of us will be tempted to take the lazy route and grab junk food at lunchtime. But on some days, it also means going for a walk with my family instead of a solo run, or enjoying an occasional tasty treat with my kids at the carnival, because I firmly believe taking care of your soul and spirit is just as important as taking care of your body.
I've come to the realization that living a healthy lifestyle, especially when you're a mom, is all about two things: balance and commitment. And that's something I hope to share with other women in a similar position.
