Being a mom will always be the most demanding job you’ll ever have, and you love it. Motherhood is all about love, care and giving of yourself. Being a mom, you tend to give without limits that sometimes you forget about yourself.
Since you are constantly on the go, it may be hard to find the time to sit and eat a meal, let alone a healthy one. Just be aware that your health and body are important to take care of, as taking care of yourself will reflect even more positively on your family’s life.
Nisreen, 29, mom to Yara 5, Yasmine 2:
I am really upset with the way I look! Even though I don’t work, I don’t have time for myself. My day starts at 6:00 AM and before I know it it’s 7:00PM: I’m occupied with feeding the kids and preparing them for school then taking them out; the day goes by; and I haven’t practically eaten anything. After the birth of my second child, I was determined to go on a weight loss diet and get back in shape. I gained 20 kg during my pregnancy and now I still have 6 extra kg that I can’t seem to lose. And with all the joy of running around, I can’t seem to sit for a meal, and I definitely don’t have time to exercise! Advice from experts:
Hiba 35, working mom to Jad 10, Amine 7:
I’m always on the go. I wake up early to prepare food for my husband and my sons. Then I run off to work on just my morning coffee. Glued at my desk I hardly move and I am always binging on empty calories… chocolate, biscuits,… in the afternoon it’s helping kids with homework, then cooking a super fast cooked dinner. The amount of food I eat is little but because of the non-nutritious choices I’m gaining weight!
Advice from experts:
Finally, exercise will always help you get in shape faster and feel good, so try to fit it into your schedule. You can walk faster while doing your grocery shopping, you can go biking with the kids, play with them or you can enjoy a ½ hour exercise while the kids are sleeping. Whatever you do, try to make a habit of ½ an hour at least 3 times a week.
You can also try to treat yourself to something you enjoy like reading a book, going to the spa or even having a small piece of your favourite dessert.
