Well my little chocolate muffins, the 14 Day Yummy Mummy Challenge has come to an end and I would love to know if you followed along, what changes you made to better yourself and how they made you feel. Sometimes I do wonder if there is anyone out there reading. If you did follow along and have a go at a few things I really hope you got something out of it.
It has just become too accepted that we Mums will put everyone else first and we don’t deserve anything until everyone else is content. Not true, this kind of attitude just breeds resentment, isolation, tired and unhealthy Mum’s. It’s just too easy to lose yourself once you become a Mum, I understand we do grow and become someone’s Mum but we should never lose who we were and who we really are deep down under all the nappies and fairy bread. You are still in there and you still deserve to be treated well and looked after by yourself. I really wanted you to find your inner goddess and to get your awesome back because it is a great state of mind to live in, but it really does take some effort to get back there. The most important thing to take from this is you are beautiful and you need to remind yourself often. You deserve new things, time on your own, you are entitled to make time to exercise and eat healthy, you are worthy of little treats like getting your hair done and just remembering to look after yourself as well as everyone else.
This was just a collection of my ideas to motivate you, take what you can from it and make it your own mantra. Often the focus of feeling good is on weight loss but there is so much more to it than that, there are so many other fast and easy ways you can feel good about yourself! The truth is, if you don’t truly look after yourself no one else will and you will eventually wake up one day unhappy, or worse unhealthy. Take charge of your life and live your beautiful life to the fullest. Oprah was really on to something when she preached ‘live your best life’. Here is my 14 things I wanted you to try so you can re-cap and maybe catch up on any you never got around to doing, if you did all 14 then the last fortnight should have been quite empowering and you should have uncovered your inner goddess, I know I have!
