Welcome to Almost Supermom Fit! I’m a wife, a mother, a foodie, a horse lover, and a coffee connoisseur. My family life keeps me busy. I am constantly chasing my two beautiful children, they are the reason I wake up every morning.
My day is filled with carpools, cooking, kissing boo boos, packing lunches, and running errands. (Did you see how I left out housework? I hate house work.) From the time my feet hit the floor I am on the go. It’s easy to put yourself last, in fact I used to everyday.
Then one day…
Late in the afternoon I stood in my living room holding a crying baby, wearing 3 day old yoga pants and thinking I had to find a way to get my house in order. Then I sat on the floor cradling that crying baby and I thought to myself… I have to get my LIFE in order. I had lost the one person I was closest to, myself. She was stuck trying to be Supermom and she was failing miserably.
I picked my self up, baby puke stained yoga pants and all and I knew I had to find a way to get her back. I started small. I woke up early, got my workout in and enjoyed my coffee before the kids were awake. I asked my husband for help (reluctantly, because it made me shamed I couldn’t handle it) and he picked up the slack. I started letting go of the “mom guilt” that was weighing me down.
I am still a work in progress. My journey has helped my to realize that I am not alone, other women are a slave to the “mom guilt” as well. I want to help other woman plan their path to a happier, healthier life.
