I have officially turned into my mother. We all swear we won’t..but one day you say a little something or do something in just that way that makes you think “oh my gosh..I’m my mother!”
I always used to give my mom a hard time about being a health nut. It was so annoying when I was young..”Miranda..that has loads of sugar in it..don’t eat that” “Miranda, what are you eating..? Are those potato chips?” <look of disappointment>..only having whole grain, low fat, sugar-free everything in the house at all times. Plus side..I’m probably a healthier adult for it..and I love all fruits and vegetables..So thanks for that Mom! 🙂
Come to think of it..in retrospect..it was all only a good thing..but as a kid I hated it. Other kids got Ho-Ho’s, Star Crunches, and Fruit Roll Ups in their lunches..Why didn’t I?
Anyway..enough on the food front..I’m quite glad for it now..but in more ways than one I’ve become my mother. I’m now a workout-aholic. Like any other “work” I take up..as with my wonderful giver of life.
If I stop working out for a few days I get in a rut. I feel crappy, I act crappy,and I even start to look crappy (to myself!). Again, a lot worse things could have been passed on from mother to daughter, so I’ll count my blessings.
Thanks for the healthy habits Mom..they’ve went from annoying to an absolute “must” in my life! =)
