I promised to be as open with my postpartum journey as I was with my pregnancy, so here it goes!
The photo on the left was 2 months post miscarriage (an extremely tough time for us) and a few months before finding out we were pregnant a third time with our sweet princess Brooklyn. The middle photo is a moment during a 9 month journey that had its ups and downs and a few scares along the way, but ultimately was a very healthy pregnancy. And the photo on the right is my today - postpartum with baby #2.
The journey back I know won't happen overnight, but I'm always one who's up for a challenge! Will I get back to the photo on the left - maybe, maybe not? But either way, that's not what it's all about. It's about getting healthy, staying healthy, and being at my best. I know everything else will fall into place in due time.
I don't remember much of the beginning of my first postpartum journey because I didn't start one until 3 months after I had Brylee, but what I do remember is how much better I felt and how much my life changed once I decided to make that change. That's what I'm striving for this time around, only sooner. I'm not focusing on the scale, because I'm more about the non-scale victories (like fitting into some cute bikinis in Punta Cana), which is the #1 mindset I'll be preaching in my mommy bootcamp!
It took 40 weeks to get here. It's going to take time to get back. And I'm okay with that! I'm excited for this journey 😊
