There’s a Movement A’coming. Won’t you Join Us?

If you’ve followed my blog for awhile now you’ll know that I’ve recently jumped on the healthy/fitness train. I talked a little bit about why here.
 I have been intentionally trying to incorporate the girl’s into my workouts, because I want to show them how working at being healthy can be fun,
and how important it is to take care of our bodies.
Last week I found our Magpie doing sit ups after putting Mia in her bed for a nap.
I asked what she was doing.
“Trying to get skinny mama.”
Insert mama fail right on in here.
My eyes filled with tears as I gave her a huge hug.
How do I explain to a two year old that her worth isn’t based on her appearance at all, when she sees her mama killing herself to work off the extra fluff. Not necessarily for the wrong reasons, but I saw that I was putting an impression on her little mind and heart. The wrong impression.
I have always known I need to lead by example, now I just need to be intentional about it.

How I talk about myself, how I carry myself.
Their little eyes and ears catch everything!!
I want our girls to grow up to be kind, strong, confidant woman.
I am constantly offering tangible definitions of beauty so the girl’s understand what “beauty” really is.
Man, raising two little girl’s is tough sh*t.
I’m up for the challenge.

I am so honored to be a part of Speak Now.
Tomorrow is the day!
I would love if you would share a post and link up tomorrow!

What does “beauty” mean to you?
How are YOU beautiful?
Write a post about the beautiful people in your life.

Or better yet if you’re raising daughters, how are you going to make sure they feel beautiful inside and out?
Whatever you choose to share, please do so!
The link up is all about raising awareness.
Every woman no matter what shape, size, color is full of {true beauty} and we each have the power to shine and spread that beauty so others feel beautiful as well.
