That’s me, my two little boys and our new commute to school in the morning. Today will make 5 days in a row!
I have always wanted exercise to just be part of my life. I have never done well exercising just for the sake of exercising. I was always fortunate enough not to have to worry about my weight until after I had kids. I LOVED eating ice cream straight from the carton that rested on my pregnant belly.
After my first son, I started a more rigorous yoga practice that I enjoyed and helped me lose the baby weight. After my second son, I have stuck to a much more gentle practice that has benefitted me on a lot of levels.
I am very good at paying attention to what my body is capable of and not focusing on how it looks. But I have not lost any baby weight. In fact, I weigh more now than I did when I came home from the hospital with him.
As you can tell from the photo, I do not have much to lose but the extra weight has definitely affected my energy levels – meaning I have a lot less of it (not that having two little boys doesn’t affect that!). I don’t necessarily seek weight loss as much as I seek better health.
So here’s to embarking on a new adventure that brings me and my sons out into the sunshine and saying hello to ducks every morning which will benefit all of us physically, mentally and spiritually!
