I'm in the process of revamping my website and I am SOOOOO excited about giving the world a fresh view of BuffMother.com!!! Back when I first launched my site in 2004, I wrote the FIRST STEP a woman must take to become a member of Team BuffMother.
The attitude of the site, the article and a few photos stood alone on my site for a few months....the response from women all over the world was EPIC and Team BuffMother was BORN!! The simple beginning for an amazing journey for many women including myself. I am updating my site, but STEP ONE remains the same. "JUST BELIEVE!!"
Here's that original article:
WHY WON’T YOU BELIEVE????
First off, society has told you over and over and over again that you can’t. I’m sure you’ve heard it, “I wore a size 5 when I got married and then after having my baby, I’ve never been smaller than a size 10.” Or, “I workout a lot but my body will never be the same now that I’ve had a baby”. On the other side of the story we hear husbands saying, “My wife looked great, before she had kids” and mothers saying to other mothers “Getting fat and staying fat afterwards, that’s just part of having a baby”
NO! NO! NO! Don’t’ believe it. Instead believe in yourself and that your body is an awesome machine. Your body is capable of almost anything your mind tells it to do. So don’t let society tell you, that you can’t have your pre-pregnancy body back (or better). Instead you need to tell your body that it will be buff and beautiful and it will believe it!!!!
Secondly, you feel that there are just too many obstacles or excuses. There are obstacles (excuses) for everyone. As mothers, we have even more to overcome. Often times we aren’t selfish enough to take time out for ourselves in order to workout. It is important to learn that the right 30-60 min workout is priceless. There is so much gained in this time that carries over to the other 23 hours a day that you must be determined to get your workout in regardless of the obstacles.
The excuses are endless: I have no time, I have too much weight to loose, My kids don’t like going to the gym, I’ve never been “buff”, I don’t have the discipline, I have a bad back, I have no money to go to a gym…. The list goes on forever. Don’t listen to your excuses. None of them are true!
- There is time, you just have to be determined to make it.
- You can be ‘buff’ all it takes is time, knowledge and effort.
- Your kids will be fine. They don’t like a lot of things. That’s how kids are.
- You have enough discipline to do anything otherwise you wouldn’t be a mother.
- Working out will help your bad back turn good again.
- You don’t have to join a gym
You need to believe that you will be buff and beautiful as a mother. Believing it is the only way you will achieve what you desire!
How to Believe:
The possibilities are endless. It is all about believing that it is possible and that will lead to consistent action toward your goals.
