Mama's Blessed : Mamas Tell All // Healthy Family

Mamas Tell All // Healthy Family

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Hey Mama Hey! Today is one of my favorite days, though I am pretty bummed. Today is the last of the Mamas Tell All link up! I know, it is depressing. Let us know if you would like to make this a once a month thing or have any ideas. I am definitely on board for continuing this in some way, even if it is just occasionally. Be sure to show some of the other mamas some love today!

This week the topic is: Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle when you have children.


Eating healthy & being healthy is a goal for this mama & her family. Though we do not always achieve that on a daily basis, it is what we try for. Having an upset toddler in the back seat yelling for chicken & fries and a pregnant hungry mama is the passenger seat is not always a good thing. I want to get out more. The play ground, the park, even just walking to get some fresh air. Once I have Mina within the next 4 WEEKS [!!!!] I plan on doing just that. I want not only me & my husband to be active & health but our children too. When it comes to food at home, I do strive to put good things on the table. For the most part I am able to do so. BUT being a tired pregnant mama running after a very active toddler sometimes means fast easy junk meals. & back to the running after my toddler. I am pretty sure she is the only reason I am not 500 pounds. I stay active daily just keeping up with her! Oh how I love that little thang! So, are you & your family eating healthy & staying active on the daily? Or is life getting in the way?

  1. I have noticed the more junk food Jayden eats the more he turns down the good stuff. With moving, vacations and parties I have gotten slack in the cooking department. I need to buckle down and only give Jayden healthy options to choose from. Then the not so good as a treat every once in a while.

  3. I'll be here to cheer you on once Mina arrives. You've got this, mama! I'm sure you'll be just fine. The fries are SO hard to turn down though. No lie, we got milkshakes yesterday. hahaha.

  4. That is what I am trying to do with Kenz. But I do have to bribe her with snacks in the stores. But that is usually gummies or goldfish so that is not to bad. lol

  5. Thanks, I am going to try my hardest this time around! Thank you, it is Mina Grace. [Mina means love in german] & Kenzie's middle name is Love so we thought it was perfect. Plus Kenzie would only say Mina when we would name off name options to her! :P So she technically had a part in picking it.

  9. eating healthy is so hard, but we've committed to spending a little more $$ and only doing healthy foods, especially during the week (weekends are a little more relaxed!). It's been hard and it definitely was a battle at first, but the results have been good. Now I just need this baby out of me so I can get back to exercising!
