The 2 Week Challenge is officially over. Although I didn't lose any inches, I did gain 2 lbs… I know it could be water weight, but it still doesn't feel good to see that number on the scale. I guess my problem is, I've already been in a funk. With our new crazy life schedule, I feel like I'm drowning in my day to day. So, needless to say, this hasn't helped my mood. A good thing is I'm not eating like crazy, I'm just not feeling motivated to work out. Which is another new problem created by this life change, my gym time is nonexistent. I will have to force myself to use my Wii more to make up for it.
I did have a proud mommy moment, which ties into the theme of teaching healthy habits to kids. We were at a birthday party, and I made my daughter a plate. I put veggies with dip, a few tortilla chips, and a half of a cookie on it. I didn't say anything, just here you go baby. I walked off to talk to my friend and looked back. My amazing girl was eating her veggies FIRST. Later on, I told her I loved how she ate her veggies first. She told me, “well the others looked like dessert and I don't eat those first.” So proud of my girl!
This weeks blogging carnival question: What is one health lesson you want to teach your kids?
The best lessons for children are caught not taught. You can say all you want to them about healthy choices, eating veggies and fruits over candy, etc. But if you aren't living the life yourself, you are just wasting your breath. I walk the walk and talk the talk. And that's why moments above really make me happy, it shows I'm doing something right!!
