My Non-Date: Scandal and Popcorn on a Friday night.

So this past week was kind of blah, I was sick and I am still sick. I decided to take it easy and do something low key instead. I can’t remember all the details right now since it is past 10 pm and my brain is on auto pilot.
I do remember coming home Friday evening and thinking that I needed to get caught up on some “Scandal”. I don’t have cable (by choice- I wasted too much time when I did have it). I am one of those people who generally tries to avoid facebook every Thursday night because most of my friends tend to do a play-by-play of the episode.
The house was quiet because my loves were spending the night at their father’s place. So I got some popcorn and changed into some comfy pajamas (head wrap included- it is a must or I will wake up with mufasa hair).
I curled up under my toasty blankets and watched episode 3 of season 3 on my computer and boy it was worth staying up late for. I love the writing, my goodness Shonda Rhimes is a talented writer. Oh, by the way I am so happy that they brought Jake back. I am a big fan of Scott Foley :-). I would work for Shonda Rhimes for free if I didn’t have all these bills to pay. Well, that was my non-date. I do hope to do something much more adventurous once I start feeling better.

P.S. I would love some great suggestions if anyone wants to share some ideas.

Thank you for stopping by 🙂

When did motherhood become a contest?

When did motherhood become a contest?

Have you noticed how there are so many “experts” on being the perfect mom these days. I understand that there are some women who actually need some guidance on how to be parents. I just don’t understand why everyone thinks that their style of being a mom is better than someone else’s. What if, we all just stop for a second and realize that we are all different. Being different does not equate to someone being inferior or superior to another. Today’s focus is on “The Super Fit Mom”, because I am sick and tired of the fat shaming that I have been seeing on the internet.

The super Fit Mom

I get it, being fit is a great thing and we should strive to be healthy and fit. It is our responsibility as parents to set a good example for our children and I applaud all those moms who are able to balance it all.

1. The Duchess of Cambridge was already a petite woman, who also appeared to be physically fit prior to her getting pregnant. With that said, please don’t try to compare yourself to her if you don’t share the body shape and frame.

2. Models who get pregnant and shed all the weight they gain “overnight” , have to do so because their jobs depend on it and the same goes for any other female in show business.

3. We normal women should not be aspiring to look like those women. Yes they look beautiful and it all looks effortless and that is exactly what they would like us to believe. The reality is not as simple as some of them would like to admit. Most of them have personal trainers, who work with them while they are pregnant, they also have personal chefs, nannies, assistants and so on and so forth.

I am a mother of three, who prior to becoming a mom was physically fit. My priorities shifted a little bit after my children were born. I work out and made sincere efforts to eat right. Do I want to slim down to pre-babies days and wear clothes I haven’t worn in years? Yes, but I also have to be realistic with myself. I have a full-time job, no nannies, no trainers, full-time student and my health is not as great as it was years ago. I do the best that I can with what I have. I don’t strive to be anyone else but me.

I will be posting some more about my views on being a mom and why we should all give each other a break. No one is perfect, in fact it would be great to see moms admitting their faults once in a while.
