"You have been selected as a #MeFirst Project Finalist!"
Hooray for me! I've been selected as a #MeFirst Project Finalist!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with #MeFirst, it is a health movement created by a group of dieticians, nutritionists, moms, etc. (mainly by Rebecca Scritchfield, RD, ACSM Health Fitness Specialist) that focuses on taking time out of your day to make sure you're taking care of you.
Why is this important to me?
Because I suffer from the "mommy/wife/career" guilt as I'm sure many women do. We feel like we have to do it all! That we have to be super women! And what ends up happening is we go full-force, 100mph, worrying so much about everyone else that we forget to take care of our own basic needs. Especially as it concerns health and fitness.
The conundrum in this is that if we take the time to do the wellness portion of our lives (working out for half an hour, eating nutritious foods) we find we feel better about ourselves, have more energy, and ultimately are more productive (and happier!).
It's mainly about self-love and I'm honored I have been chosen to be a part of that.
So you will see me blogging on The #MeFirst Project as well as tweeting in regards to this project (starting next week through mid-December). In doing this I hope to bring you my wonderful experiences and learn more about creating balance in my life. "Super woman" has to first save herself before she can save everyone else.
I hope for your support in this, I know it will be a great life lesson, and look forward to filling you in on more details.
Get Mean. Make a Decision. Choose Health!
