Hey to all my mamas out there trying to cover up all their wobbly bits....two things:
πŸ’•Your family, especially your kiddos, love you unconditionally and actually quite enjoy your softness πŸ’• You are perfect just the way you are and deserve to enjoy life without worrying about your body.
Just do you babes!

Back for another edition of "Front Facing Camera Friday" because I literally do this at least 10x a day.
And every time I do it always takes me by surprise 🀣🀣
I don't always feel like a glitter goddess, but the goal is to feel like one more often than not.
Drop me a 🌈 in the comments if you're working on loving yourself a little more...even when you don't love what you see πŸ’― yet.

You had my curiosity but now you have my attention.

People ask me all the time: I get it you're happy now but don't you ever miss being skinny?
No, I don't miss it. My body is still here. She's got a bit more wear on her. A few more scars, a lot more lines that tell my story better than I ever could, some more bumps and bulges. And over the next 10 years she'll change again and again and tell more stories about this life I lead. She'll be smaller and larger and a little bit in between. But she'll always be mine.

Constantly struggling to stay in a thin body consumed me. I had little room for being myself because I was obsessed with what to eat, when to eat, afraid to experience things because of all the effort I would have to put in to work it all off. That is no way to live. And I've been on the opposite end of the spectrum, such a sense of rebellion from not controlling my food that I ate anything and everything just because I could not because I wanted to.
Here's what I've learned, we have two choices:
Embrace who we are in the moment and choose joy and surrender
Or
Find discomfort in who we are in the moment and choose to DO SOMETHING to get to a place of joy and surrender

Unfortunately most of us live somewhere in the middle of those where we aren't happy, nor are we willing to do anything about it, or the things we think we want don't actually fulfill us once we have them.

Choosing joy and surrender has changed my life completely. My happiness is connected to my ability to let go and trust: myself, my circumstances, my faith.

My body may be a few sizes larger right now, but my soul has expanded to a place that has allowed me to embrace her in any form and appreciate all she has done for me and enjoy what she'll allow me to bring to life in the future.

I encourage you to stop living in the middle. Make a choice. And if you decide it's time to make a change, be certain that you evaluate the reasons behind WHY you are making that change and determine what outcome will truly help you achieve the feeling you want to accomplish.
Just do you babes!

Everyone feels empowered by something different.
I LOVE inspiring women to wear bikinis, BUT it is not the only way to feel liberated. And it's certainly not the only way to be body positive.
Embracing your body and finding self love is an inside job, and you are in charge of deciding what FEELS BEST for you. What lights you up. What pushes you out of your shell just a little bit more each time you do it.
And most importantly, be mindful of comparing your journey to anyone else's. We are all individual: as completely unique as our bodies are; our experiences are just as unique.
If you need some help finding your self love and body confidence, check out my "Show Your Glitter Stripes" workbook full of magical, glittery goodiesπŸ¦„ link is in my bio!
Just do you babes!

Bikini: @cocoreefswim

🌟#rg @alexandrabrea_🌟"I went to the pool in my bikini for the first time over the weekend πŸ‘™ and as most of my fellow mamas could guess, I felt utterly ashamed of this mummy tummy of mine. But then I got to thinking, why feel so ashamed? I nourished two babies with this body, I still do.. I am not the same women as I once was in any way possible. I am different and I can love this version of me more than I have ever loved any other version of myself. On my journey to self-love, it's a tough one but I'll get there one day. Cheers to my fellow mamas with stretch marks still rocking your favorite bikinis! I admire you." πŸ’ͺπŸ™

|| Mom tummy || I guess this is me saying I'm accepting my tummy. I used to try to suck it in, stand so my bumps and lines and scars from mommydom and life don't show. I used to hide my tummy. Hide my body. Hide everything. But why? This body has done so many bad ass things. I have grown two HUMANS IN ME. I have Gaines and lost weight. I have worked this body to the bone. I have fought it every minute of every day for years, and all it did Was try to keep me alive and sustain. It's remarkable. And what it looks like in a bathing suit doesn't half equate to all the amazing remarkable journeys it's been through. Like the scar on my side from when I laughed so hard playing in the yard I fell off the tree and cut it or the crazy birthmark on me that looks like a kiss mark or the legs that have run miles in joy or walked away from something so traumatic I still rarely talk about it. This body is fucking strong. It's worthy. It's perfect- not because of what it looks like- but what it's battled and weathered and sustained and lived through. So fuck ya I'm wearing a two piece to swim class this afternoon- mommy tummy and all. πŸ’•β€

Would you ever say those hateful thoughts that run through your mind every day about yourself and your body to your sweet, innocent child? Or your 5 year old self?
I'm certain I know the answer.
So ask yourself - why is it okay to talk to myself this way now?
Kids learn their behavior from you. And even if you don't have children, people will treat you the way you allow them to based on your self worth.
You deserve more than this. You are worthy of love, and it begins within you.
Just do you babes

On Tuesday, at TIME's 100 gala, @theashleygraham was asked to name an inspirational moment in her career. Her response? When she posted a photo of her cellulite on Instagram. "I love the skin I'm in," she said at the time. "And I'm not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite. And you shouldn't be either." πŸ‘ŠβœŠπŸ‘πŸ™πŸ’ͺ

One more from today 🌸

Trained legs today πŸ’ƒπŸ» Ended my workout with HIIT cardioπŸ’ͺ🏼 Went pretty light on legs with a higher rep range ; either 15 or 20.
Trying to bring my legs down a little in preparation for my show, even though it's ways away.

PokΓ© night! πŸ™ŒπŸ½ while it's not TRUE pokΓ©, it's good enough for me. We've got a half cup of white rice, 1 oz. of tuna, half an avocado, 45g seaweed salad, some ginger, a jalapeΓ±o, and 50g of kimchi. Macros for this are 55C/16F/15P, which I know isn't the most ideal macro distribution, but I was craving this really hard today and made it work. When you crave something, don't deprive yourself of it. If I would have came home from work and had some chicken and broccoli like a good girl, there is a MUCH greater chance I would end up binging on sushi at a restaurant sometime this week. By doing this, I can fulfill my craving while still knowing exactly what I'm putting in my body. It's all about balance, friends β€οΈπŸ˜‡

@gabby3shabby always knows how to shut body shamers and outdated beauty standards down πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ Here are 5 times that she has clapped back at the notion that she has to defend her confidence, stood up to hateful trolls, and reminded us how important it is to see yourself represented in the media. πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ (She also has a memoir coming out out Monday!!)
