Fit Moms for Life Pledge


As a mom, I’m not used to putting myself first
There are so many people to take care of
But from now on, I pledge to put myself somewhere in the equation

To nourish my body with healthy food as I would feed my family
To strengthen my body with fun activities that get my pulse racing
To work out so that I have more energy to play
To get fitter in order to gain vitality
To rest when I’m weary
And to love my body for the strength it gives me to care for others
And the joy it gives me in living my life
The way it lets me run, jump, soar

I pledge to nourish my mind with healthy attitudes
Useful information,
Positive thoughts,
And the affirmation and support of others who have my best interests at heart
I know I will always have a million ideas, tasks, and responsibilities swirling in my mind
But I pledge to strive for moments of clarity
I will banish those moments of self-doubt
I will love myself as I love my children
I will tell myself, I can do it
I will visualize myself living the life I deserve

I pledge to nourish my soul
To surround myself with people who share my values
Who support my quest for physical, mental, and spiritual health
Who celebrate my victories
Who cheer me on when I stumble
Who know me as a mom, but also as a person

I know there will be times when I falter
I know it won’t be easy
But I know that I deserve this
I am a mother, a caretaker, but I am also a person
I pledge to care for myself, too
To increase the love I lavish on others so that it’s large enough to include me
I pledge to never stop striving toward living my best life
For my family, for my children, but also for me

I owe it to myself to live in the moment
To play so hard and so long that I collapse into laughter
To laugh like a child

I will never forget that tomorrow starts today
I am ready to be my best
And to love who I am at every step along the way

I can do it
I’m worth the effort
