Healthy Mommy Pledge

  I got this from my friend, Mrs. Muffins over at her blog. I love the idea, and wanted to re-post it here! Goodness knows I have enough working against my health, I don't need to be working against it myself! So, I signed the pledge, and hope you will too!

By signing this pledge, I promise to abide by the Healthy Mommy guidelines as listed below:

* If I wouldn't let my children eat it, I won't eat it myself.
   This includes cigarettes! Alcohol, in moderation for special occasions is okay.

I will exercise at least 30 minutes each day. 
   Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. :)
 (Exercise = Anything that gets your heart pumping!)

* I will not talk bad about my body, especially in front of my children.
    Not only does talking bad about your body hurt yourself, it can teach your children to do the same thing to themselves!

* I will encourage and support other Healthy Mommies
    Comment on each others' blogs, post tips, share information, etc!

Oh those are all such great guidelines. I try to use the word "beautiful" as much as possible around my kids. We decided that the word "fat" was a bad word, and banned it as soon as my little girl (she was two at the time) said outloud "I'm so FAT TODAY". It broke my heart, and I knew things needed to change. We always try to make every day the very best it can be, trying to get a daily dose of sunshine, making sure to move our bodies and get our blood flowing. I can't imagine living life any other way :)
