To take care of her own body. Sure, cleaning, cooking, playing, and all that is a
part of the job, but your own health should be at or near the top of the list.

I don't buy ANYONE'S reasoning of "I don't have time to exercise or eat right" as an excuse, but especially SAHMs. You should be able to carve time to focus on your body throughout the day, or incorporate it into your lifestyle with ease.

*of course, barring TRUE medical conditions...many of which can be reversed or at least maintained through a raw food diet*


ETA - this obviously should apply to everyone, not just SAHMs, as the original title said... it's just that I see the "I don't have time" line most often from SAHMs. I promise if you have time to do everything else, you have time to treat and fuel your body correctly.

 I think people should stfu with what my sahm responsibilities are.

The woman in the avi pic is not me, she is my inspiration.  I am a wife, a mother, and an aspiring trainer and nutritionist. I love seeing people get fit and healthy to lead the lives they are meant to live.

Yes I agree, but I most often hear SAHMs using the "I don't have time" line.


Quoting danie24:

Why just SAHMs?

Don't you think this idea applies to EVERYBODY?  Why just the focus on SAHM folks?

I'm a SAHM and am thin. I can't have a cookie or I'll get fat, so can I at least have a gold star or something?

I don't understand why you care so much what other people are doing with their bodies.

Oh, shut up, get up off of your ass and off of the computer.  Go get yourself some exercise.  Maybe a little sunshine will stop you from being so judgemental.
