There’s a better way. ⠀
✨⠀
I’d like to see more women, more moms, more daughters and sisters jumping off the diet roller rollercoaster 🎢of quick fixes, restricting, binging and obsessing over food.⠀
✨⠀
I’ve been there. Counting every single calorie and morsel of food to make sure I don’t go over 1200 calories. Going out to eat sitting there hungry while everyone else enjoyed yummy food. Getting hunger headaches because well... I was hungry! Then binging my life away on booze and burgers.⠀
✨⠀
Most women do it thinking they are doing something good for themselves with this quick fix mentality but it’s ultimately causing hormonal imbalances, unhealthy gut/digestion which often ends up resulting in anxiety, stress and depression.⠀
✨⠀
Instead I encourage you to start focusing on adding more nutritious foods instead of taking away food. Stop letting the diet industry get the best of your health. START to move your body daily, drink water, eat clean foods 80% of the time and the right macronutrients for a healthy balanced diet.⠀
✨⠀
Start loving yourself RIGHT NOW and eliminate stress from your daily life as much as possible. Stop worrying and stressing about your body all the time. Stop stepping on the scale. Let go and focus your energies on impacting the world with your special gifts and having fun with your family!⠀
✨⠀
Drop a emoji below if you've ever been on the diet roller coaster and felt the need to jump off! 🎢⤵️ ⤵️⠀

THINGS YOU SAID BEFORE YOU HAD A BABY👇🏼

THEN 🤰⠀
"Of course I'm going to make my own baby food! What do you need, like, a blender and a bunch of vegetables? People who buy baby food are so lazy."⠀

NOW 🤱⠀
"Thank you, corporations, for mushing up peas for me so that I do not have to spend my four free minutes of time every day in the company of a blender and eighteen postage-stamp-size Tupperwares."⠀

For about a decade I trashed my body. ⠀
💫⠀
I had lost my mom in a car accident and spent the years after binging on booze, burgers & bad boyfriends. By my late 20's, I had gone through enough emotional pain, like so many other people, that I had developed a chronic level of food/exercise obsession & body shame.⠀
💫⠀
I wasn’t really aware of it at the time, but what I was aware of was a constant dissatisfaction with my body and a desire to lose weight...⠀

“I feel so fat.”⠀
“My thighs are disgusting”⠀
“I need to lose __ pounds”⠀

Ever felt this way?⠀
💫⠀
Many of us think that in order to be deserving of love, peace & happiness you need to change or be better than you are. When I was at my leanest, I was lonely and depressed. When I was at my heaviest - big and round with a pregnant belly - I was happiest.
💫
I used to think happiness was a body fat percentage or a number on the scale. But I’ve come to learn that happiness is an awareness, not something to be achieved.⠀
💫⠀
I’ve worked on self-awareness, healing and personal growth for many years now and I can tell you that happiness is a choice. The sooner you accept your current awesomeness - in your current body, wearing your current dress size - the more likely you are to build and maintain a healthy body for the rest of your life. ⠀
💫⠀
You can’t wait until you reach a certain body weight or wear a certain size to love and accept yourself. Doing so can prevent you from ever reaching your goals. And if you do reach your goals with that mindset, chances are that you’ll still be unhappy. ⠀
💫 ⠀
Self-acceptance & love isn’t something you earn with a diet or workout. It’s something you give to yourself everyday, because you are a human being with value and dignity.⠀

"You have the ability to change your life. You've always had the power, Dorothy. You just have to stop waiting for someone else to do it for you. There is no easy way out of this; there is no life hack. Just you and your God-given strength and how much you desire change."⠀

ENERGY.⠀
✨⠀
The most valuable thing I’ve gained since starting my postpartum journey. Focusing on eating what my body needs to not just survive but THRIVE.⠀
✨⠀
Just a few months ago I was completely drained. DEAD. By 4pm I wanted to just throw up my hands and give up. I didn’t have the energy to cook a healthy meal, move my body or even take a shower! ✨⠀
The funny thing is, I knew I needed to take care of myself in order to regain my energy. A catch 22. I was in a rut. A vicious cycle of NO SELF-CARE.⠀
✨⠀
Can you relate?⠀
✨⠀
Little by little I figured out a way to balance what my body needed with all the other demands of motherhood. I wanted to be my most happiest and healthiest self not just for me, but for my daughter Emma.⠀
✨⠀
Self-care is ABSOLUTELY necessary to feel good about who you are as a mom. No matter what self-care looks like to you. Find a way to squeeze some in. Save some time meal prepping or focus on streamlining your family systems so you can do the things YOU really love to do when you have a few child-free hours.⠀
✨⠀
What is your soul craving right now when it comes to self-care?⠀

11 pm, 1 am, 4 am, 7 am 🌼that's what the past two nights have looked like for me. Some nights my baby is sleeping well only waking up once throughout the night, the other half of the time she's not. But as much as I loathe getting up constantly throughout the night, I also miss her when she's asleep 🤷🏻‍♀️. Anybody else feels this way? Anyhoo, feel free to answer in the comments and share all the sleep techniques that has workout for you. Right now my answer is a big fat "D". So those of you up all hours of the night I salute you and I'm right there with ya!⠀

🌸2 WEEKS PP ➡️20 WEEKS PP🌸

I gained 50+ pounds during my pregnancy and I’m not gonna lie, I had moment of sheer panic that I’d never be able to lose the weight.⠀
✨⠀
I had hoped to only gain 25-30 pounds like my friends during their pregnancies but that just wasn’t possible for me (I’ll share why another time). At a certain point, probably around 4 months I gave up the fight and decided to trust my instincts and let my body do it’s thing.⠀
✨⠀
There are gals who ‘bounce back’ fitting into their skinny jeans just weeks after giving birth, but this wasn’t me, nor was I trying for it to be. ⠀
✨⠀
I decided from the start of my postpartum journey that I was going to rebuild my body without being restrictive or doing excessive exercise and most importantly without sacrificing my precious time with my daughter Emma.⠀
✨⠀
The years of strict dieting, over-exercising and setting unrealistic weight loss goals are OVER. None of those things ever really worked long term and they only encouraged an unhealthy, resentful relationship with my body. A mindset I definitely don’t want to pass on to my daughter. ⠀
✨⠀
My approach to weight loss is different this time around. I’m allowing my body to shed the baby weight slowly and gracefully and it has made all the difference. I’m a better, fitter, happier mom because of it.⠀
✨⠀
If you're wondering if you can lose weight without overhauling your life. I'm here to tell you that, yes, yes you can. One step at a time and a lotta love 💕⠀
✨⠀
What areas in your life need grace and rebuilding?⠀

If someone had told me a few years ago that I would be holding someone else’s vomit in my cupped hands, I might have laughed at them. If anyone had told me I would calmly hold the hand of someone who was pooping all over my legs, I would have said no, sorry, you must be thinking of someone else - That is not a thing I would ever, in a million years do. But when you become a mom you will do things you never could have believed you would do and will give up things you never imagined you could do without.

We are constantly documenting our children’s growth with labeled monthly photos, but it’s not as easy to document our own changes. And I’m not talking about the superficial changes like the under eye bags and the increased likelihood of purchasing your entire wardrobe from Target, but the huge changes we never could have predicted.

The fact that you will completely restructure your priorities and have to reimagine your sense of self. The fact that your heart will grow a thousand times until it’s the size of an overweight cat. The fact that your child will cry uncontrollably and take an enormous dump all over your legs, and your first thought will be “she’s seems so upset. I just really want her to be okay.” And it’s not until your second thought that you’ll say. “And maybe I should shower and change my pants.

Happy Mother’s Day to all my mamas, soon to be mamas, plan to be mamas and everyone else who can appreciate this post! 💩🤱🏻💕

How is it 4 months already! I remember the first time I held my girl. I did not feel ready. For some people, holding a baby is the most natural thing on earth, and for the rest of us it is only slightly less stressful than being asked to hold a grenade. For those of us regularly dropping our phones and tripping over our laptop cords, the idea of being responsible for a delicate human life can be overwhelming because we are not sure we are cut out for the job. ⠀
.⠀
But you wont have time to be overwhelmed because you'll be busy cleaning up poop and slip and sliding in breast milk. Then one day you walk into her room in the morning and she looks up at you and smiles and you are so happy your heart feels like it will explode through your rib cage 💗.⠀
.⠀
Logically, it might seem hard to explain how these bizarrely sentimental good things somehow outweigh the laundry list of bad ones. But without question, they do. And for the first time you can't remember childbirth in enough detail that you consider having a second kid. I mean, there may have been some rough parts, but look at this face! It couldn't have been THAT bad, right? 😆⠀
