Yes, maybe I might come off as selfish. Like I said before HERE I have spaces in my home where our girls are not allowed and let’s add to that selfish list: I make MY food first. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Yup! Mommy first.
Let me explain myself, maybe then you’ll understand a bit more. I became a stay at home mom about 3 years ago, at that time it was just my eldest and I. At first, I din’t know anything about being home ALL DAY LONG, I wanted to be THE “perfect” mom and wife. One of the things that I started to notice was that, instead, I was irritated and eating a lot. I was gaining weight fast, I was not able to actually sit and enjoy my food. I would prepare my then 2 year old’s food first and before I was done preparing my food, she was done and wanted out, I would eat part of my food and then get involved in whatever she was doing, which was mainly getting into things she shouldn’t.
I found myself gaining weight and miserable. In return I had a bad temper, more so than usual, and had no patience AT ALL with anybody. Eating healthy is something I enjoy a lot. I love feeling like I am fueling my body and not just satisfying my taste buds.
So, I started making my food first. I am now able to sit down at the same time as them and ACTUALLY enjoy my food. I am not proud to report that my irritation and lack of patience is STILL there, BUT! I know for sure, that is not as bad as it was before, I have maintain my weight, and I feel SO MUCH better.
Am I being selfish? I don’t think so, I am simply making sure that I am happy and healthy so I can be the best version of me to the ones I love.
Happy Tuesday Luvs!!
