Jill’s Fit Tip Tuesday ~ Who am I?

the

Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered who am I? I have!! Somewhere between getting married and having kids I lost the Jill I use to be. I was giving all of my energy to my family. I started to lose my identity. I gained weight and just kept getting by day to day.

I was happy I had my family and my beliefs but nothing past that brought me much joy. More pounds came with each pregnancy and not taking it all off after I had the baby just made things worse. I felt alone and would look around and wonder if other mom’s were ever feeling like I was. Finally after my second child was born I joined TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) and started to drop some weight. I started to feel a bit better but really had my weight go up and then down and then up again. It was a battle. I would eat when I was board, sad, happy, or just if I felt like it. During this time I just never felt like myself.

I had a few friends that opened up to me that they were going through very similar feelings about losing their Identity. I did not feel alone any longer. A few years back Before even being diagnosed with diabetes I told a friend that I was going to go through a whole transformation. A big lifestyle change I said it may take me a few years but in the end it will be worth it. Not much longer after I said those words I opened my own mobile spa teaching other mom’s how to learn to take (ME) time. It is vitally important that moms take time to relax refresh and rejuvenate.
I was now practicing what I preached and slowly began to feel more like myself.

After my 3rd child was born I could not take off any weight.
That’s when I found I had type 2 diabetes. I vowed to get the weight off. I put together a plan. Eating 6 small meals a day and the pounds started coming off. The more home spa’s I would give the more I would come to find that most mom’s from all walks of life at sometime lost their identify. I really enjoy doing home spa’s and learning all I can about how I can help these mom’s realize how important that (Me) time. is.
Take those much needed breaks. Workout, go to a movie, out to a healthy dinner with a friend, read a book, take a walk. Do anything that lets you be you and a break away from the daily routine of life.

I love helping others!! 🙂 Remember to be good to yourself.

Jill’s Fit Tip Tuesday ~ Chew Gum!

Has anyone else noticed all of the flavors of gum coming out! Wow! Talk about selection. Last March they came out with the Extra Fruit Sensations. Yummy gum! My favorite was the strawberry banana and the sweet watermelon. I love gum. I find it to be the perfect way to curb my sweet tooth. When all of the fruity gum started coming out I was in heaven.

The other day I was in check out isle when something caught my eye. I saw a new gum out from Wrigley. I could not believe it as I read the word Strawberry Shortcake. I looked over and saw Key Lime Pie, then I saw the one that I just could not believe. Yes! Mint Chocolate Chip. That’s one of my favorite ice cream flavors. How could they put it in a gum?
I bought all 3. All of them are good but my favorite is the chocolate mint chip.
Give gum a try when you are just craving something sweet. It really does work. 🙂
