C A R L Y R O W E N A  ⋗ Happiest when Sweating or Eating! ✮ Giving you the free tools rock your body! ▸ Take on my #getgorgeous Transformation Guide! ⩝ LATEST VIDEO ↡

H A N G E R 🍔 I’m going to admit it, i didn’t realise how restrictive I was until i fell #pregnant and no longer fancied the foods i’d always eaten.

When i say restrictive, i mean that my meals were always planned around a protein source and a whole lot of veggies. The #firsttrimester was hardest, all my bump craved was marmite sandwiches, chocolate wheetabix minis, salt on EVERYTHING, meat and ZERO veggies.
I’ve been pescatarian for 3 years and im nervous of the online hate im going to get but this #baby wanted meat & the smell of fish was enough to make me vomit. I took the supplements, i went to the drs and over and over i was told to listen to my body, so yes, i had a chicken dish once a week during the first trimester. I hated the taste & would often shut my eyes but i can’t even tell you how much better i felt afterwards.

Im now in my #secondtrimester and the craving has almost gone, im less into veggies and more into salads & fruit at the moment but the salt, meat & marmite has gone.

Luckily for me i have a man who supports my current confusion with #food and we half almost every meal as i never know what i’m going to want. My answer: do what you have to do to provide a safe home, then go back to your restrictions & rules once you feel like yourself again. (If you want to).

R E A L I T Y 🤳🏻 These photos are 3 seconds apart! It’s amazing how different you can look in just a split second! Sure, im sticking my #bump out a little in the second but im sure as hell sucking it in in the first!

Always remember, no-one wants to post a bad photo, we all want to look our best and WHY shouldn’t we, i mean the #cellulite on my left cheek is really trying to steal the limelight but ive grown fond of it over the last 10 years so thought i’d give it it’s moment to shine.
Post what you want to post but try not to judge yourself based on others, they might have a seriously epic photographer, know there angles or simply know how to photoshop!
Ps: this @asos swimsuit & everything else I packed PLUS my favourite bits from my POBox is going up on #YouTube tonight, 6pm, see you there! .

S I Z E 🤷🏻‍♀️ #transformation let’s make them less about appearance & more about emotions. Forget strong, skinny or curvy, let’s make happy a size!
Say hello to my first ever #transformation picture - you see i’ve been lots of different weights but more importantly lots of different emotions.

I’ve been too ‘skinny,’
Too ‘muscly’
My husband must be gay, because i look like a man.
Too athletic,
Too Boney,
Overweight for my BMI
But the most important factor is that regardless of what anyone had to say about my body, was I happy or not?
At my lowest i was heartbroken and travelling with girlfriends, too much vodka and too little nutrition.
At my happiest emotionally I was just over 11 stone, feeling badass at #crossfit and loving food yet EVERYONE told me i look like a dude.
Right now i have no idea what weight I am, i’ll admit I don’t feel my most confident as most of the time I just look bloated but i so excited to rock my ever changing shape.
