Last week I posted a photo with Adriana at the beach & got lots of compliments on how I look postpartum. As much as I appreciate all the kind words from you guys, I definitely don't want to put out a false image of myself out there. So, I debated a bit whether or not I should post this photo of myself, raw and unedited, but ultimately, it's important for me to remain real with you guys. Here is what I look like, #1monthpostpartum with no fancy filters.
Personally, I never cared about the number on a scale, I don't know how much I weigh now & it really doesn't make a difference to me. What I care about is how I feel in my body. Right now, having carried two beautiful babies, my belly is like a giant, squishy marshmallow, my legs are flabby and full of cellulite, because I haven't had a proper workout in a long time. But you know what? In the past, I spent so many years being so self-conscious and beating myself up over looking a certain way. Now, I just accept my body for what it is, and plan on starting to consistently workout soon. It's very tough with #2under2 as I literally don't have 5 minutes to myself, but I know that when there is a will, there is a way. Even if it's just 5-10 minutes a day, I will have to figure out how to fit that into my days, again, not because I care about my weight, but because I want to feel strong, healthy & want to be toned & sculpted again. 💪🏻 Ultimately, my message to you is don't judge yourself by what you see on social media. It's very easy to put out "perfect" images out there. But that isn't what life is all about. Love the body you're in & definitely make time to create healthy habits & just do your best everyday. Especially for all my mommies out there. Our bodies are incredible. They grow & give birth to human beings. That is a miracle & we should be proud of all the changes our bodies go through because of that experience! #foodforthought #momlife
