Getting stronger and healthier has been harder this time around than ever before. There’s more distractions, more excuses, more aches and pains, and more exhaustion.

In a house full of chaos 90% of the time, I SO yearn for that quiet time I get to be alone (when everyone cooperates) and do something that’s only for ME, even if it means I have to get up early in order to get it. It’s probably the only thing during the day that truly gets done for ME and only me. Even when it was hard, that feeling I’d get after I was done would be worth it 10x over.

I didn’t know if I could do it. I kept telling myself it was probably too soon to see any kind of results, especially since I’m breastfeeding, had a VBAC, was in labor for 13.5 hours, pushed for 2.5 hours, and had a few postpartum hiccups along the way. It wasn’t at all what I expected it to be. I could’ve let myself fall back into old ways of thinking and self-doubt, but I chose not to. I chose to show up everyday to show my body gratitude for all it has done this year. ⠀
It was exciting to start from scratch and feel my body get stronger day by day. Exercises I couldn’t do in the first week I was crushing in the third week. And at the same time, a lot of exercises that I’m still currently modifying. And that’s okay. Because it’s all part of the process, one that I’m learning to love.

Commitment.
3 weeks.
Simple meal plan (while breastfeeding).
Daily superfood smoothie.
30 minute workouts (while modifying).
Some fun ladies to do it with. 👭👭👭

That’s all it takes.
Literally anyone could do this.

Interested in having me as your mentor??
We start in January. Spots are open now.
I’d love to have you in there.
You know how to find me.
Always here to help. ❤️

Celebrating 1 month (!) of snuggles with this kiddo.

This is what postpartum can look like: fresh flowers and room service. When you’re recovering from childbirth, room service is part of what we do! Snacks full of protein and fiber, lots of water and teas, and fresh, hot and hearty beef and barley soup for lunch (in between lactation support, discussion about physical recovery from childbirth and sibling and family adjustment and wellbeing, laundry, and unpacking new items for life with baby)... After all, doula means “woman’s servant.” 💞 #takebackpostpartum #postpartumdoulasdothat #atyourservice #roomservice #freshflowers #specialdelivery #nurture #nourish #postpartumwellness #postpartumnutrition #postpartumjourney #postpartumdoula #doula #selfcare #ittakesavillage #motheringthemother #womensupportingwomen #momssupportingmoms #bestjobever #weloveourclients #minneapolis #hopkinsmn #twincities #twincitiesmom #twincitiesmoms #cesarean #childbirthrecovery

MAMA TRUTH MONDAY
*
Last week was about changing the amount of 'stressors' that we have; seeing how we may be able to decrease what we have in our 'bowl'. This week is about looking at the size of that bowl and seeing if we can enlarge it.
*
This diagram from the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine, shows how trauma can affect our Window of Tolerance (WOT), or our capacity to cope with situations that arise in our lives.
*
When we are within our window, anything that comes our way is manageable. Based on our life experiences, some of us have larger windows than others; which is why some people are more capable of juggling multiple stressors seemingly with ease. However, there comes a time when things around us become too much are bodies become dysregulated; where we can be up-regulated/hyperaroused to agitated, angry or anxious, etc or down-regulated/hypoaroused where we shut down, feel sluggish, and/or become spacey, etc.
*
As we move out of our WOT, our emotion can drive our physical. So in the case of being hyperaroused or up-regulated that agitated angry anxiety can be experienced physical with muscle tension, increase heart rate, increased breathing, etc; physical changes that would be conducive to fight or flight.
*
So if our emotions can drive our physical then we can also use movement/exercise and breathing to influence our emotion.
*
Have you ever noticed an emotional shift from a physical activity? This week we're going to focus on awareness and how it can shift this relationship.

"The first forty days (postpartum) is a period of time unlike any other. It is a short season of life that follows the delivery of your child -- an almost six-week-long period that arrives after many weeks of pregnancy and who knows how many hours of labor -- in which you recover from birth, your baby unfurls slowly into the world of bright lights and sounds, and together you devote yourselves to forging your relationship outside the womb.
.
Though brief, it is a time of amazing intensity and massive adjustment. Your body transforms--again--and your heart throbs with more feelings than you ever knew possible. Your internal rhythms ping-pong as days and nights merge. Your stamina and serenity get tested like never before. Your connections to the world you knew before losses, or even come undone, and your sense of who you are begins to change and morph." ~ Heng Ou

Amen! I've been on the verge of burn out lately- holiday sales, studying, everything else everyone needed me to be. Not enough time in the day for what was demanded of me! I hit a low point. Grayson was in a bad mood- probably feeding off of my stress. I felt fried by the time I could drop Grayson off at my mom's! In order to maximize what we can accomplish, we HAVE to rest. When you let yourself recharge, your energy can double! Your body rests and heals. Only then can we accomplish our goals!
Happy Sunday everyone!

This is my favorite chia recipe! It's in @newbornmothers cookbook Nourishing Newborn Mothers: Ayurvedic recipes to heal your mind, body, and soul after childbirth by Julia Jones. You can get her cookbook for FREE when you make a pledge towards her newest book through her pozible campaign / see the link in her insta profile @newbornmothers . •

I highly recommend this book for postpartum mamas. It's best to grab this while you're still pregnant and have your family/friends/support people read trough it to familiarize themselves. •

After all, she explicitly explains these recipes are to be prepared and cooked FOR new mamas not by them. 👏🏻. • . . .

Maternal mental health disorders are the NUMBER #1 complication in pregnancy. But, my guess is you heard more about gestational diabetes than mental health. Unfortunately, many care providers don't know what to do with you or where to send you if they do ask about your mental health in pregnancy or postpartum season.
Let's change this!!!! If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please reach out for help:
*Sadness or depression
*Anxiety or panic
*Irritability or anger
*Problems eating or sleeping
*Upsetting thoughts you can't get out of your mind
*Feeling you are out of control
*Feeling you should have never become a mother
*Worry you might hurt your baby or yourself

Does that make you second best?
Or did he save the best for last?

I’ll let you in on a little secret, being healthy doesn’t come easy to me 🧐🤨 ——
It’s not easy to workout

It’s also not easy to not be able to pick up your kids ——
It’s not easy to plan out meals and choose healthy foods

But it’s also not easy to feel like 💩 and be constipated, bloated and 5lbs heavier
Which is your hard?!? Sometimes you just gotta pick!

I've been drinking green smoothies since Monday and I lost 2.8lbs since then! While I am now at my prepregnancy weight, I'm not at my prepregnancy size. The weightloss obviously came from the gut, not fat. I know that's probably disgusting, but I feel really good despite my horrible pelvic pain!
The smoothie is a piña colada smoothie:

1 cup coconut milk
1 cup fresh cut pineapple
1 banana
1/2 cup fresh spinach
.

My afternoon. Chocolate mousse cakes (made using roasted sweet potato!), turmeric lattes and baby feet 💕

Healthy chocolate chip cookies!!!! Say what?!? These are grain free, dairy free and gluten free!

Seriously, i was very skeptical but they turned out to be so good and the boys loved them! It was a good treat for this pmsing mamma and was a healthy “cheat” —
Here is the recipe👇🏻 Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yield: about 20 cookies

2 large eggs
1/4 cup melted butter (or melted coconut oil)
1/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
1/2 cup coconut milk (or almond milk, soy milk, etc.)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
2-3 tablespoons shredded coconut, if desired
———
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with baking spray. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, melted butter, sugar, milk, vanilla, and salt until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, stir in the coconut flour, chocolate chips, and coconut until combined. The dough will be quite runny.
Let the dough sit for 10 minutes or until it has thickened to the consistency of more traditional cookie dough (it may still be soft). Scoop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls and drop onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set and just turning golden-brown.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve.

Mama-Baby adjustments with @dr.leelee 🙌🏼
My body was feeling all sorts of wonky as my hormone levels drop and things shift now that I’m no longer pregnant.
And Baby C had been in such a funky spot in my belly, he needed some more realignment too.
Now we’re driving home and he’s fast asleep and I feel worlds better.
Healthy nervous system and spine for the win.
I just got my birth photos back so I’m going to work on having my birth story up soon!

I find it fitting that when I first smelt this oil i thought wow I'm going to smell like a Christmas tree farm... it didn't take me long to realize i actually want to smell like a tree farm every day 😂 and it makes me wonder if more people had real Christmas trees again if the holidays might be a bit more calm and merry 🎄#whyismominsidethetree 😂

Oh Hi Bumpy Swag 😍😍 @nikkiandtees

I have had a lot of people reach out to me over the past few weeks to check in. The truth is, I'm not okay all of the time. Being a mom of two can be incredibly challenging for me. I recognize and own that. While I try to treat myself naturally, this is something I am taking to the doctor. One of the things I need in my life to get through the day is taking care of myself. I can't eat like crap and I can't not workout. I've done that, and it doesn't work for me. This phase of my life solidifies the importance of whole foods and movement every day. If you are on the "struggle bus" please don't hesitate to talk to me. I may not relate to the specific situation, but I can relate to your feelings. .

It's #tiptuesday!
Let's talk about meal prepping before baby. Has anyone done this?
🍽
Stocking your freezer and pantry with meals and snacks in the weeks before birth is a great idea. It sets you up for a smooth postpartum recovery and transition into the #fourthtrimester. 🥘🍝🌯🍲
Some ideas to get you started:
💡Cook and freeze lasagnas, casseroles, breakfast burritos, and slow cooker meals. Pinterest is chock full of recipes just for this purpose. I might have a blog post in the works too 😉
💡Gather and freeze single serving smoothie packs so you can just dump in the blender later with your liquid of choice
💡If you use a lot of dried beans or legumes, batch soak/cook in advance and then store in single servings
💡Stock up on non-perishables and other ingredients that you typically shop for often. It's worth the temporary space they'll take up in your house based on how much effort this will save you when you're too busy and tired to shop later (the same goes for toiletries like shampoo and toothpaste! Get a year's worth, you won't regret it)
😋😋😋😋😋😋
Do YOU have any tips to share? What are your fave meals to stock up on before baby?

ONE WEEK POSTPARTUM
One week post c-section.
Postpartum belly has shrunk a lot.
See the post of me in the Little Black Dress a few posts back to see my belly the night before I had my baby at 38.5 weeks!
Because I had surgery, I am wearing an abdominal binder (big stretchy band that fastens with Velcro) and that helps support my belly as it heals and reduces swelling. It also helps aid in closing any separation I may have although it can’t heal that for me.
I am starting to activate my core and pelvic floor more with my breath because it doesn’t hurt to do that now - early on it did!
The more I heal, the more I can focus on actually core breathing reps and focused engagement.
Core rehab Qs?
Comment or DM me!
Make sure you watch my IG LIVE REPLAY today before it disappears, or head over to Facebook to watch it there! I talk about my C-Section experience and why it happened.

This little guy motivates me to get my booty movin. My William will watch me and the choices I make. I have to lead by example. Our health should always be a priority. (But it’s all about balance so have a cookie.. and chipotle 🤤) Even when we don’t think we can get ourselves up off of the couch, you’d be surprised what 30 minutes of sweating will do for your energy.

Ever have those days where ya just feels little crazy?!?
And maybe crabby too

Don’t want to wear the clothes you put on because you don’t like it or they feel too tight —
Your jeans feel like jeans and not leggings

Every. Little. Thing. Bothers you —
I’m not controlled by my emotions BUt they are often an indicator of some other stuff going on - Aunt Flo
- need sleep
- haven’t had good communication with spouse - need me time
Or all the above 😂

Right now, laying in bed and relaxing is the time where i can pray, nap, whatever I’m feeling but to figure it out and get back on track!

Today I met both of my goals I mentioned in my last post. I had an amazing nap thanks to my beautiful mom and sister for watching my William while I slept. And after debating with myself I finally set down the little guy and he fell asleep. I took advantage of my freedom from snuggles and busted out my workout. It hurt like shit. I’m still sore from Monday’s leg day, I’m exhausted, and ended up modifying a lot of the moves just to get through it but it’s done and I’m enjoying a wonderful post workout stretch and #NewGirl while little man finishes his nap! Totally looking forward to our next feed. He only nursed one side before my workout and I feel like my boob may explode 😅 Plus I already miss his cuddles. You know you’re a mom when the perfect end to your night is nursing and snuggles in bed! Goodnight, IG family! 😌😴👶🏻🤱🏻 #postpartumbody #postpartumwellness #breastfeedingjourney #reachingmygoals #babysnuggles #fitfam #fitness

Went for a walk at the lake today!
Took Jax and the baby which was a handful, but worth the fresh air, sunshine, and exercise.
Finally stopped bleeding again, hopefully for good this time!
Goal for the next 2 weeks: daily walks, daily fresh air, daily stretching. .

Well, this is happening!! 🙈❤️👶🏻 I am currently 11 weeks pregnant with our first little baby. To say that the last few weeks have been a complete whirlwind would be an understatement! Nothing has changed our lives more than the realization that we are about to become parents. 🤯🙉 What!! Perry’s been talking to the baby inside my belly ever since we saw that positive pregnancy test and his love for it is already making my heart melt on the daily. He’s also been driving around late at night to pick up any dinner that actually sounds good to me. Spaghetti, five guys french fries or chocolate cub foods donuts. #health #preganantlife #besthusbandever 🍝🍟🍩 Morning sickness is for real... but it’s literally morning, noon and night (WHY) and the fatigue is starting to get reallyyyy old. But every time we go to the doctors office & hear that little heartbeat I’m reminded that this is one of the greatest privileges we will carry in our lifetime. To raise little humans who will learn to laugh, lead & love on their own. We truly feel like God brought this baby into our life at the perfect time & wow I am beginning to sound more cheesy than ever before. #hormones

Anyways, we are so flipping excited to let the news out. I swear, EVERYONE has been asking us about babies lately. 😅🙈 So... here goes nothing. Cheers to next adventure. ❤️✨

I just LOVE my big long comfy Target sweaters. I buy larges because I want them extra big. They even double as a blanket for my son while he nurses. I rarely take them off. And after rewatching this video I found myself wishing I had left it on. I am thankful and grateful for my body and its ability to grow tiny humans but I’m going to be honest, the hunt for my old abs is ON! I miss them so much. I have sacrificed a lot to become a mommy. Some parts of my body may never be the same again but I am making a vow to myself that my abs won’t be lost forever! During my son’s only nap yesterday before our 2 month check up I jumped on my mat and free flowed some @ab_asanas. It was technically a break day from #BBG but what I wanted more than anything was some time on my mat so I listened to my body and gave it what it craved, movement. 💪🏼
Wishing I had some of my motivation from yesterday. It was a long all nighter on the couch with my poor boy running a fever and I’m running on about 2-3 hours of sleep 🙏🏻 My goals for today are taking a nap and getting my BBG done. Oh and making my husband figure out how to get the critter out of our chimney 😯🤭🙈

But seriously, what a powerful quote to reflect on. A lot of this starts with good physical and mental health.
I’m turning 30 next year (aka in a few months 🙀) so I’ve decided to start a new facial skin regime! Will share once I finalize what all I’m using. I want a healthy glow as I ring in the new decade. ✔️
So that’s mine... what’s one aspect of health that you can commit to paying more attention to? Think of it as investing in yourself as well as the next generation.

Well done @bbc5live let’s keep the conversations going.

Oh im sorry, were you using this mat? Sometimes fitting in my workout means working around this little one. But treating my workout like an appointment I cant miss means I get it in no matter what. Its not hard to finish but it can be hard to start. Find what works best for you. Set a goal then set a path that pushes you towards that goal.

I started my fitness journey with a workout buddy. She held me accountable, every day we had a workout date. She helped me without even knowing it. If you need accountability then send me a message and we can talk about ways to help you reach your goals!

The journey isnt meant to be easy but you dont have to do it alone.

Knowledge is power! I was prepared for my ideal birth with my first baby but didn’t have a backup plan if things didn’t go as per my expectations. I really struggled to accept our son’s birth story for YEARS and I know many other women do as well!
My online Body & Birth Preparation course will go over this and much much more! Launching early 2018.
