BEHIND THIS SMILE
Behind this smile is someone that is struggling.
Struggling to be a good mother, wife, friend, entrepreneur
This girl is sad, she feels like she is failing, she’s exhausted, she’s grumpy, always wanting an argument (with no energy to have it), wants to be awkward not knowing why!! This girls wants stay in bed & sleep for a week, have a break, get a break & be able to really smile.
Why am I feeling like this well for a few reasons:
I have been sick the last 3 weeks
The boys aren’t sleeping through again with multiple wake ups
I am questioning my abilities so Debbie downer is strong in my thinking at the moment.
This is not me so what has changed?
The big change is I’m not exercising. I need these workouts for my mental health not just physical.
When I workout I feel:
Wanting to go out rather than hide
So I need to push myself to start again.
Here are my top 3 tips:
🏻 All or something is better than all or nothing. Start small even if that is 10 squats when you get out of bed in the morning. Or go up & down the stairs 5 times each way. Mine is 1 songs worth of burpees. Make is something you CAN’T fail on.
🏻 find a workout partner. My husband or the boys love working out with me so I just need to encourage it!
🏻 Make it fun. I will pick my 5 favourite songs & attach an exercise to each one. Or use the boys as my weights or just dance!! Talk to me do you feel like this sometimes to? What is the one thing that helps you get out of a funk? - 8 hours ago
