Here's the deal- I am not perfect, but I eat pretty healthy; low carb, real foods, I even dip my toe in a ketogenic diet now and then... but the pants get tighter all the time.
The real wild card is working out... on a good weekend I squeeze in a hike. but day-to-day I really struggle to find time to work out. And yes... I could get up even earlier, or yes, I could work out after the kids are asleep. But frankly, but sleep and uninterrupted GLOW binges with my husband have value in my life too.
I see the lovely 20-something yoga mom's in their matching yoga pants, doing matching downward-facing dogs with their darling tiny toddlers. But my kids are too old for matching yoga gear, and too young to leave home alone while I go to the gym... and they have a knack for fighting like they are in the Thunder-dome as soon as I roll out my mat.
This is my question to you.... how do you do it? The mom's, who rush home from work, and try to get a healthy dinner made, and missed their kiddos desperately all day, but wish that for one hour they would Just.Shut.Up. What is the trick?
