Why do so many people put themselves last? I know as a wife and mother, I tend to put my families needs first. Then I am so exhausted by the end of the day I realize its been all day of barely any food, running around with no fuel going in. And water… oh this is so important for our bodies, yet so often I run on maybe a bottle or 2 and realize I have not had any water in hours. This leaves me with a headache, short temper, and exhausted as well. Oh.. and those caffeinated soda pop we run to for energy… those will make you even more dehydrated.
I am going to give a little more focus to me!! Every morning I am going to wake up when my alarm goes off instead of hitting the snooze. During what normally would snooze time I am going to start my day with a personal development quote and prayer. I will make sure I get lunch every day and not just grab something quick. I will make an effort to eat a healthy, balanced meal. Dinner will be made every night as well. I will be creative and make a healthy balanced meal for my kiddos and adults in one meal. I tend to feed the kids, get them ready for bed. Then hubby and I eat which ends up being like 9 or 10 at night. Every night I am going to drink a nice cold water while I relax and set my calendar for the next day. Tip: I get pretty colored markers to play with makes it more fun! I am going to read from my scriptures every night before bed and say my nightly prayers with my hubby and personal ones. I will also get my 64-100 ounces of water in every day. *I will blog my creative meals* Please share your favorite recipes as well! I can use all the help I can get.
Looking forward to this fun adventure called Life!!
