I was reading the article above and just had to talk about it! What do we think about this photo? I am pretty sure the original intent wasn’t to fat shame but rather to try to inspire. Can I see how it could annoy people? Sure! But really what the message here should be is to continue to focus on healthy living and being a Mom is not an excuse for not taking care of yourself!
Should everyone work towards the end goal of having a rock hard body or six pack abs? Uh, no! That isn’t on my priority list, but working out and eating healthy IS. I know I am only growing my baby and don’t have my baby here with me yet, but as I get closer, I become more and more concerned with exercise and healthy eating. After all your health is not only of your concern now, it is now the concern of your child. I want to be healthy FOR him. I want to be able to have him grow up having me physically able to do fun things with him — like biking, running, hiking, skiing, raft, etc!
I may not be able to be as active as I was before having a child but getting in a half an hour a few times a week should be totally doable. And I am hoping to have continued focus on healthy eating.
What are you opinions about fitness and overall health while being a mom?
