Mom and pro soccer star Mia Hamm said,” True champions aren’t always the ones that win, but those with the most guts.”
This Sunday is Mother’s Day, the perfect reminder to ditch trying to be perfect and focus on being you. It is a day to honour moms and reflect on champions. Like the pros, moms don’t give up when the going gets tough. That’s when they dig deep to find ways to push past fatigue, to rally their teammates and to seek out strategies to get the job done.
Our moms look after us when we’re sick. They believe in us when we don’t; they model hard work and loyalty. Unfortunately, they also tend to put everyone else’s needs ahead of their own. Being a fit mom requires real dedication. It means sweating around family obligations and sometimes saying no.
Fit moms required discipline with their diets and their shopping lists. They need to think about where they source their energy and what they use to fuel their busy lives. Their snacks need to be as powerful as they are. #championsnacks
This Mother’s Day, we salute the moms who change diapers and do burpees. Moms who work outside the home and moms who workout. Moms who preach balanced diets and balance the checkbook. (Does anyone do that anymore?) We tip our hats to moms who run their kids to practice and run while they’re waiting.
Let’s face it, moms are just down right awesome. Founded by Anna Jarvis in 1908, Mother’s Day was made a holiday in 1914. So this Sunday, celebrate everything you love about you mom. From the way she blended greens into your meals when you declared your hate for veggies; from the way she urged you outside for fresh air and of course, for how hard she works every day.
As Mia Hamm said, “True champions aren’t always the ones that win, but those with the most guts.” Here’s to moms everywhere. #truechampions #mostguts
