Amy is a healthy mom because she realizes the importance of her own health and how it effects her family. If she is not taking care of herself, then she will not be able to work to her full potential. Not living a healthy lifestyle could lead to laziness and depression. “When you are exercising and taking care of yourself, you will take better care of your family. Your cooking will improve and you will have more energy when it comes to taking care of the house and your kids.”
Being a healthy mom is important because just being a mother is a high calling. Being entrusted to raise children is not something that should be taken lightly.
Amy’s advice on being a healthy mom is:
I once heard someone say, “You can be pitiful or powerful, but you can’t be both,” and this has stuck with me ever since. I heard this quote from Joyce Meyer. The struggle of maintaining a healthy lifestyle takes place after I leave the gym. I was powerful in the gym but pitiful at home. My advice is to tell yourself one healthy decision you can do every day for one week. On the next week add another thing and then do two things that week. For example don’t tell yourself “I can’t have diet cokes anymore.” Tell yourself “I will drink eight glasses of water every day for one week.” The next week, keep doing the first thing and add on your second healthy choice. Write it down and stick it on your frig. Then week two, right down something like “I will eat a serving of vegetables every evening for dinner.” Then concentrate on those two new habits. You will be amazed how quickly your new habits will develop!
