Repost from my amazing client @ashleyanahata
40 weeks preggo vs 3 days post partum. This is post partum realness, folks. Just got done having a sitz bath because my bum and my vagina are both feeling beaten up. I'm wearing an adult diaper because sometimes my pee comes out without me wanting it to, plus there is a frozen maxi pad in there to help with the swelling and the bleeding happening. I smell like the stinkiest BO ever because my hormones are raging and who wants to leave the comfort of bed and baby to take a shower, honestly? I am alternating between feeling so happy to have my baby finally and feeling so completely overwhelmed to have my baby finally. It's sometimes just too much to think about.. But... everything is healing. I'm transforming once again, this time into a mother. My family is here to help me with everything and my husband is just as obsessed with my baby as I am, even though neither of us are sleeping much and he has to wake up all throughout the night to help me with her. My belly is now empty but my heart and soul are full and overflowing. I would take 10x worse of a recovery period for these feelings, so raw and so thankful right now. #postpartum #4thtrimester #ourbodiesareamazing #lifeofamidwife #takepostpartumback

20 weeks in, 10 days out. My mind still is blown that I grew a tiny human! #ourbodiesareamazing

Since January, I've learned a lot about my body (hello bursitis). I've realized that a few days (or weeks) off can do more for you than any workout ever will. I've learned that pain means your body wants you to stop and if you keep pushing, it will eventually do the stopping for you. I've learned that recovery is long, nonlinear, and often lonely. These lessons weren't fun, but they were important. Now when I clip in to a bike, heck just when I walk around my gorgeous city, I realize how lucky I am. #YesMyShoesAreBedazzled

Marveling at the goldilocks who is teaching me how to mother. Appreciating all the mothers and the motherly. Celebrating 22 months of breastfeeding. And sharing that because breastfeeding toddlers is 'normal' and ok for those who chose and are able, but it's still sometimes not seen to be 'right'. Yes she can ask for "shi shi" now (horror, once they can ask for it it's too old, right?). Yes, she eats plenty of food and drinks water. I very much treasure our moments of intimacy, I am so greatful she gets the extra immune support and age-tailored nutritional boost from my milk. #ourbodiesareamazing #πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“ #happymothersday #normalizebreastfeeding

I'm so damn proud of this body of mine. I was only able to breastfeed Amelia for just over a month. It was one of the hardest, most frustrating months of my life. I was so afraid I wasn't going to be able to ever breastfeed future babies, but Thea has been amazing. I've officially made it 8 whole weeks πŸ™ŒπŸ»It's still hard, and most days all I do is sit on the couch and feed her. I'm a 'just enough' producer, so it makes it hard to be away and have time to myself. All the hard work is worth it, and knowing every little roll on her body is because of me. Six months is my goal, but I'm hoping to make it a year. I'm blessed every day for my girls. They may have both been fed differently, but both are happy, healthy, and beautiful. πŸ’— #normalizebreastfeeding #fedisbest #nationalbreastfeedingmonth #grlpwr #ourbodiesareamazing

When your chronic disease is complicated AF. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ’†πŸ’†πŸ’† (ps. I know this guy is *actually* the beloved microscopic tardigrade which lives in the water you drink). But none the less I found it to have relatable meme potential, as my anti-bodies are being real bitches to my doctors and fucking with everyone at the moment, this is how I imagine them. πŸ™„#microscopic #littleworldinside #ourbodiesareamazing #complexdiseases #autoimmunedisease #chronicillnessawareness #confusing #science #bloods #fibromyalgiaawareness #chronicfatigue #potsawareness

I ran my first half marathon ever seven months pregnant {seven years ago this month!}. I remember finishing and thinking, "huh. this is probably a lot easier NOT pregnant. I should probably do a marathon." so then a year after my baby was born, I ran my first marathon.
.
I've done 16 marathons since, and I've done either the st. george or big cottonwood canyon marathons {or both} every year. it feels strange not to be doing an early fall race right now, but we evolve as athletes, I guess, and I have a few other things in mind this year instead. I still love those utah canyons, though. I'm going to miss running through the cooler air and colorful foliage this time around, but I'll be back. πŸ¦‹πŸπŸ‚

I love how my muscles appear bigger as I'm getting leaner..😏..so fascinating.

I never thought there would be a day where I post myself publicly in heels and a bathing suit 😧but I'm sure this is only the beginning. β˜ΊοΈπŸ™ˆ I'm definitely "thick" right now 😳☺️(why I chose to post so that I can show the look of "hypertrophy" phase versus when I start "leaning out") but feeling a million times better than last week! πŸ˜… I've switched my nutrition back to what I normally do, added cardio back in and lost just over 5lbs. One interesting part of this journey is how my body seems to look different every day. One moment I feel and look ripped and the next I feel and look soft. πŸ€” Just another example of fluctuations when we make changes to our nutrition and exercise. No stress. I've learning to get better at accepting the different types of fluctuations that happen with change. I think what's most important is still stepping forward knowing that we are doing what gets us closer to our goals... regardless of how slow the process can feel at times. 😊

I had the most vivid dream last night that I was running barefoot across a desert landscape crawling with fire ants. I can't tell if I miss running or just need to chill out. I swear I'm not taking any more pain meds.
.
in any case, I woke up this morning definitely NOT running anywhere. instead, I did some core work and took a long, slow, unromantic, uphill walk on the treadmill. I'm feeling good two days post surgery. happily, hardware removal is a much easier recovery than the deep, throbbing pain of screwing metal into the bone. just a few more days of wearing this claustrophobic splint...I miss feeling strong. 😩

His happy place. Mine too because really is there anything sexier? 😻Also, THIS MAN FELL OFF AN 80 FOOT CLIFF NOT TOO LONG AGO. #OURBODIESAREAMAZING

One hundred and sixty-third workout of 2017. I'm actively taking steps to work on cleaning up my diet. I don't eat horribly, yet I've found that I've gotten a little TOO comfortable with snacking. My snacking is more than likely an energy suck, as well as a leading culprit in a standstill with my progress. Please believe me there is nothing wrong with indulgences...in moderation. Work on not indulging daily, "You know, cuz you workout 'n' shit..." πŸ™„ I'll be honest with you...I have craved Salsa Verde Doritos ALL day...damn you delicious Doritos! 😩😒While our bodies are maintained and enhanced by fitness...sure enough they are made in the kitchen! Winter body here come I! Who knows, I might be rocking a sexy two-piece this winter!πŸ‘™β„οΈπŸ˜
WORKOUT MOOD: Sprinkled myself with a little more of that black girl magic...there is power in a determined woman! βœ¨πŸ‘ΈπŸΎβœ¨ ❇️The Consistent Life Day 163: Cardio w/ Sporadic HIIT Sprints πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ”₯
βœ…65 total minutes on the treadmill w/ sporadic HIIT sprints @ a brisk to moderate pace @ high-max incline: 3.21 miles; burned 793 calories.
βœ…HIIT SPRINTS DURING WORKOUT:
β€’30 seconds @ 11.0 incline/5.0 speed
β€’40 seconds @ 11.0 incline/5.5 speed
β€’60 seconds @ 10.0 incline/5.0 speed
β€’35 seconds @ 7.5 incline/6.2 speed #ourbodiesareamazing #bgki #hiitworkout #bikini #healthyeating #Doritos #changes #transformation #bodypositive

First workout on my new Stepmill that ended with an intense weight lifting session! In a 45 minute stepmill cardio session I climbed over 200 floors, had over 3,000 steps and burned over 300 calories! Then another 300ish calories in weight training! 😝πŸ’ͺ🏼 All the while my little boy was fast asleep still. I'd say that's a great start to a BEAUTIFUL day!! β˜€οΈπŸ’–Oh and forgot to mention, when you do intense training sessions your body CONTINUES burning large amounts of calories as you go about your day! After training at a high intensity, your body needs to take in oxygen at a higher rate than it did pre-exercise so it can cool down, repair itself, and return to its resting state. This requires the body and metabolism to work at a higher rate, so it continues to burn calories! So your body is STILL doing work while you go about your day! #OurBodiesAreAmazing #FitTips #Fitspiration #MorningWorkout #FitnessAthlete #BikiniCompetitor #FitLife #NoExcuses #Consistency #Dedication

Feeling his kicks are so weird and wonderful. Although I can't wait to meet him, I'm savoring every movement and moment until then. πŸ“·: @shanihadjianphotography β€’
