As a human being, I know the importance of exercise. As a full time working mum, I know it is nearly impossible. I said ‘nearly’ cos if I was to be really disciplined, I would have no problem contributing 1 hour of my 24 hours to an exercise session, even a short walk.
But in reality, I work 8 hours a day. I then get home and start dinner, then laundry and then help the boys with their homework. By the time I finish all that, I would just want to sit in front of a tv and just chill. If I am lucky, with a glass of red wine. Or two. Even right now, I am writing this in the parking lot outside my kids’school. Just dropped them off.
Anyway, I have always had issues with my weight. I mean I am not overweight but I feel like I am on the heavy side. As I grow wiser (ehem!), I am more concerned with my health rather than my weight. .. I have high BP and exercising can help. But then again….It seems that exercising is overrated. I mean, you do what you can to keep healthy, right? Not that it is mandatory!
Nowadays, I do whatever I can. I have learnt to accept my body. For a mom of three boys, I think I look fabulous. Yup, I have some spare fat around my waist but what’s important is I can run with my boys and have fun with them without being out of breath! And I want to be like that until I am like 70 or 80, if I live up to that age.
So basically what I am saying is, though it may not be easy, accept yourself, with or without fats. What’s important is you are healthy enough to enjoy life with your loved ones. So until next time, accept and respect yourself and live life to the fullest.
