Around this time of the year, we all need a bit of a nudge in the right direction. With the holiday season approaching, us moms barely have time to monitor our lifestyles and what we put into our bodies. This is because we’re busy focusing on making sure the kids are healthy and getting the nutrients they need.
But what about you? We don’t have endless energy like some may think, we tire out easily and focus less on our diet and more on our families. Isn’t that motherhood in a nutshell?
This year, I want things to be different. I want to focus on my family a healthy amount and also focus on my body and its needs, because I deserve it. To help you get on track as well, here are some tips to get that healthy lifestyle you deserve before the new year creeps up on you.
Vitamins and minerals provide your body with the nutrients it craves, especially in the winter months. Your immune system is probably shaky enough with the kids coughing their way through public school that you could use a little jumpstart. But before making any decisions, be sure to always ask your doctor which vitamins you would benefit from and what doses would work for you. Everyone’s different.
Smaller turkey and more veggies? Sounds just as yummy! Try new recipes that call for more vegetables, and less sodium- and sugar-indulging foods. Or, this holiday season, try to limit your indulgence to only one meal per week. This way, you avoid falling off track and are able to jump right back into your routine the next day. Whatever works for you, at least you’re keeping yourself on track.
Even if you don’t have time to go to the gym or do a home workout in your living room without being called from the other room 15 times, there are healthy ways to get out with your kids. Try going for a morning walk – I promise, I feel 10 times better about myself when I get outside and move my body around 3-4 times a week. It doesn’t have to be a lot but every time counts.
Start with a soup or salad at a big, family dinner before moving on to your protein. By the time you get to all those pies and brownies, a few bites will be all you need!
