Hi, I'm a stay-at-home mom of 2 small children. I eat too much and can't organise my time to live healthier. How can I be more motivated?

Find time for you: When you are caring for small children it can seem impossible to make time for yourself, but it is crucial that you have time for yourself in order to stay motivated and active for your children.
