All I can hear is Alicia Keys singing right now lol!! 🎤🎶 I’ve got some serious booty goals for 2018 so I’m gonna keep making it burn!! I’m super stoked because I’ll be starting a booty and core focused program in January to seriously kick things into high gear! 👟🍑🔥🔥 #operationfitby40 isn’t going to happen by me sitting on it that’s for sure.

What are your fitness and health goals for 2018??

I heard this at a conference recently and boy did it resonate!! Procrastination is often a story we tell ourselves because we are avoiding something that makes us uncomfortable. Some sort of fear.

What if we changed that story? What if we became a “do it now” person?

What more could accomplish if we got out of our heads and just did the thing?
We’d learn, we’d grow, we’d LIVE.

Stop hiding behind fear and and just freaking do it!! Now to figure out why I have a deep seeded fear of laundry...🤣😂🤣😂😂

Incarcerated omentum in a small umbilical hernia. It is always fun to reduce these! Once the hernia is opened one can pull out a large amount of internal organs. In this case it's the omentum (the fatty apron sheet that protects the intestines. Fun, fun. #incarceratedhernia #incarceratedumbilicalhernia #hernia #umbilicalhernia #ventralhernia #herniarepair #umbilicalherniarepair #bellybuttonhernia

Real Talk time: I am 2 months pp today and I did my monthly measurements. Although I lost inches everywhere else, I GAINED 2 inches in my stomach 😢😠😳 I wasn't suprised because I've felt like my stomach was starting to bulge out and have been doing LOTS of research. Turns out that on top of my umbilial hernia that sticks out quite a bit, I also have diastisis recti 3 fingers wide. Meaning my muscles are not connected and letting everything hang out. AND even though I had stepped up my workouts this month, I was basically doing lots of things to make the problem worse (planks, burpees, etc....) So what can I do?? I looked up how to fix it and found some very easy exercises like I'm doing here. Has anyone else out there dealt with this?

Just had surgery a few hours ago to take care of an #umbilicalhernia . Thought I was gonna need the mess but turns out the hole in my abdomen was so small that they just stitched it up instead. 4 weeks of no lifting ☹️ hopefully I don't lose to many gains #surgery #recovery #goodpainmeds

#tbt to when Olivia was recovering from her hernia repairs and first round of #sclerotherapy in the #PACU
______________________
It's extremely rare for baby girls to get hernias. Only 5% of infants get hernias and out of the 5% roughly 10-20% are girls. So of course Olivia had to have not only one but two hernias. 😐😔😪 The plan since she was delivered was to wait until Olivia was older to start any sclerotherapy. We wanted to reduce her exposure to general anesthesia at such a young age. However, since she was going to be under anyway for the hernia repairs, her team of docs suggested for us to give sclerotherapy a shot

One of the first moves we work on in Mindful of Movement class- Squats. It's one of those movements that we all do numerous times a day.
But what if your glutes aren't truly activated during these movements? When I say activated I mean are your glutes just squeezing or are they truly available? I like to show M.O.M. athletes how to engage their glutes for squats and all movements by looking at what the butt is doing. Some things to look for: is her butt tucked under; Is she going into a butt wink during her squat; Knees collapsing? I see a lot of pregnant and postpartum athletes in this position. This was a good warmup to get the glutes firing. #getglutes #gluteactivation #squats

Umbilical hernias... common in newborns (as is diastasis recti) and typically resolves on its own by 1 year of age (they give it 4 years before medical intervention is recommended). You know where else umbilical hernias are common? Postpartum mommas with diastasis recti. What if I told you there were simple techniques you could use daily to reduce your likelihood of developing DR and common complications following pregnancy- including hernias, lower back pain, pelvic pain, etc.? It's true. #spoileralert #bellybreathing #umbilicalhernia

I love this soft lavender color. The lavender lattice band is a limited edition band. It will help warm your little one’s tummy and relieve gas without having to use heated up herbs or packs. The triple layer of the band and when doubled, six layers is all your baby needs to keep her tummy warm and compressed. Check out our sale on select items online and enjoy FREE shipping. .

#Repost @magnoliaptw - Ladies & Gentlemen, we have done it! We’ve reached the end of all #diastasisrectirepair aka muscle repair aka #abdominoplasty or #tummytuck 🌸🌸🌸🌸The final topic is “What happens if I get pregnant AFTER #diastasisrecti repair?” The answer is, not much. The surgery will likely have no effect on the baby, nor should it increase your risk for pregnancy complications. You could basically think of it like, “I’m getting pregnant for the first time but with extra tight abdominal muscles.” You may feel more pulling, itchiness, and stretching in the abdomen and just like during your first pregnancy you are at risk for loose skin, #stretchmarks, and #abdominalseparation. It is for this reason that general and #plasticsurgeons recommend diastasis repair only after you are done having #children. If you need a #herniarepair due to medical reasons or risks then speak with your #surgeon. 🌸 To everyone who followed this November series thus far, thank you!!!

#Repost @magnoliaptw - 🌸 #PREGNANCY - During pregnancy avoid any position that twists the uterus. During the #2ndtrimester and #3rdtrimester you want to modify as if you had #diastasisrecti (no planks, all fours, legs in the air while on back) as these positions increase risk for #abdominalseparation. In addition, avoid laying on your back as the baby can compromise blood flow. 🌸#POSTPARTUM- after 6 weeks your #obgyn or #midwife may clear you for #intercourse. You will want to modify as if you had diastasis for the first 6 months to allow the tissues to come together and heal. Laying on your back is fine. 🌸#DIASTASISRECTI- you want to modify in the bedroom just as in the gym (see pics). All fours is contraindicated so modify by leaning on furniture while standing. 🌸AFTER #DIASTASISREPAIR- your surgeon will likely clear you for intercourse at 6 weeks #postop. I recommend maintaining diastasis #modifications till around 12 weeks as the muscles are still recovering. 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸 The purpose of @magnoliaptw is for education only.  Magnolia and associated Social Media sites do not serve as medical advice for the public.  If you have a medical condition, please contact your health care provider.

Next 6 Week Mindful of Movement Program starts January 8th. Listed below are some common but NOT normal symptoms that we talk about in the class.
Urinary or fecal incontinence
Painful sex and/or vaginal dryness
Diastisis recti and/or umbilical hernia
Prolapse (pelvic organ prolapse- organs descending south sometimes outside of the body)
Hip/pelvis/low back pain My goal is that all women connect to a women's health physical therapist for at least an assessment. In conjunction with your PT's feedback, we will work together in class twice a week. We will workout in a way that brings mindfulness to any of these potential symptoms that I listed above that a woman may be experiencing or not. Perhaps you don't have any symptoms. Maybe after childbirth you leaked a little bit and were told it was normal or it subsided.
Our bodies change, our exercise demands change. As we age, hormones/menopause or go through pregnancy, or experience injury we consider more than just modification. We take that in mind and adjust for your specific needs. Many women stop their exercise program or routine out of helplessness, lack of answers & support, or they're simply misguided. The strategies that we'll implement will increase your strength and provide lifelong benefits. Runs 6 weeks Mon/Wed at 11 am

Monday motivation!! So excited to have my new group starting today! I need some serious accountability if I’m going to reach my goals in 2018. #operationfitby40
Honestly, part of me wants to take the “holiday excuse” approach, but then where would that get me? Jeans that won’t button that’s what!😂 I know myself too well and if I wait I will over indulge and regret it!!🍫🍰🥤🍪🥧 It’s not too late to join in on the fun!! Reach out if you want in and I’ll squeeze you in today!

This is not how I wanted to spend my Sunday night... #umbilicalhernia #surgeryisinthefuture

It’s crazy to think that this ALL started with me wanting to have a healthy pregnancy 3.5 years ago.🤰🏽 I stuck with it not only for the benefits I was feeling inside and out, but the incredible community I became a part of.🙌🏼 These people. They get me. They love me. They encourage and inspire me to grow and be a better human.

They lift me up when I’m down and celebrate my wins.
These are the people I get to CHOOSE to work with.
Most days, I’m home with my family, working in pockets of time.

However, a couple times a year I get to see these beautiful faces and soak in their incredible energy.✨ We have SO much in store for 2018. I’m deeply grateful for the experiences that await us. ❤️ What do you have in store for 2018?

What if you could build something, where the most important thing is taking care of yourself?

If this resonates with you at ALL, let’s talk. This could be exactly what you’ve been looking for.❤️

Here are some exercises for women with #diastasisrecti, and recently #postpartum moms wishing to prevent diastasis. They can be performed at home or in a gym. It is important to perform only “Tummy Safe” workouts with DR to prevent further widening, deepening, or lengthening of the gap through shear force. The website www.fit2b.us is an excellent resource for patients and healthcare providers alike. @fit2bstudio (#notanad). 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸 Disclaimer: exercise at your own risk.

Check yourself before you wreck yourself!
Diastasis recti is not a condition that just magically goes away on its own. Actually, the less you know about it can actually make it worse. Knowing you have DR is the first step to recovering from it. How do you know if you have it ? The majority of all post partum moms experience abdominal separation until about 3-6 months post partum. It is a good idea to get checked at around 6 months. Checking too often, or checking yourself (and not a healthcare provider) can actually make things worse. Pressing fingers into already weak and separated tissue can cause the tissue and muscles to separate even more. 🌸🌸 I suggest to all my post partum patients to act as if you have DR until you are 6 months post partum. That way, in case you do have it, you will have been preventing it from getting worse from the get go. After all, 30% of first time moms and 60% of second+ time moms will experience DR after the initial 6 months post partum. 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸 The purpose of this @magnoliaptw is for education only.  Magnolia and associated Social Media sites do not serve as medical advice for the public.  If you have a medical condition, please contact your health care provider.

What are some treatments for diastasis recti that don’t involve exercise ?
Kinisiotape is a therapeutic treatment that is applied to the skin. It facilitates healing by giving a gentle and constant somatosensory input to the nerves, helping them to fire. It can also be used to reduce pain and inflammation. 🌸🌸 In the case of DR the tape can be applied across the abdominal muscles to help facilitate closing and decrease the movement away from the midline of the body. This tape can even be applied to pregnant women as a means of preventing further DR, or to offer support/pain management.

#Repost @magnoliaptw - 🌸It’s not fat it’s an abdominal gap!🌸 This beautiful patient has #diastasisrecti from sternum to pubic bone measuring 4-6 cm wide, 2 cm deep. As you can see when she is in a standing posture the laxity of the linea alba and the separation of the abdominal muscles cause the abdominal cavity to push forward. This gives a “pregnant” look or even appears as excess fat. On the left you can see when she is lying flat the abdominal contents return to their proper location, and a very slim and toned tummy is revealed.
This photo is an excellent example of the frustration of many mothers following pregnancy. No matter their diet or exercise they are still unable to achieve their #prebabybody due to the anatomic changes to the tissue and muscle. 🌸🌸🌸🌸 Also frustrating for this woman, and many like her, is that the general population is uneducated about #abdominalseperation and make false assumptions. 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸 If you suspect #diastasisrecti after baby or extreme weight loss please consult with an MD and request a DR check! 🌸 The purpose of this @magnoliaptw is for education only.  Magnolia and associated Social Media sites do not serve as medical advice for the public.  If you have a medical condition, please contact your health care provider.🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸 - #momlife #diastasisrectirepair #abdominoplasty #physicaltherapist #womenshealth #thefutureisfemale #umbilicalhernia #ventralhernia #musclerepair #womenshealth #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #physicaltherapy #diastasis #lineaalba #gap #mummytummy #mommytummy #magnoliaptandwellness #atlantaphysicaltherapy #atlpt #atlantafitness #atlantawomenshealth #atlantamoms

This is not just a Mom problem!
Pelvic floor dysfunction can present itself with symptoms such as painful sex, trouble inserting a tampon, fecal, or urinary incontinence. These are clues that the pelvic floor is not doing its job but sometimes no symptoms are present. Although with the demands of pregnancy on the women's body some symptoms may arise.
Teenagers, women who have not had children, women in menopause, and men also experience pelvic floor dysfunction.
So what can we do?
I always recommend starting with a pelvic floor physical therapist. This is a special kind of PT who can evaluate the status of the pelvic floor and initiate a process of neuromuscular retraining.
Then from there, we need to rethink working muscles in isolation (I.e., doing kegels alone). As Julie Wiebe says, The core is a team of muscles that need to work together. This "team" consists of your diaphragm, transverse abs, and your pelvic floor.
Next we check your alignment and breathing. We need them working in a coordinated action. This is key.

#Repost @magnoliaptw - 🌸 How do people modify their work outs with DR ?🌸
.
So many mothers want to get back in shape after having a baby, but don’t know how to modify their workouts to prevent widening or deepening of their abdominal gap. Did you know that if you have DR it does not matter how much weight you loose, you will still more likely than not have that mommy tummy if your gap is not closed? Did you know traditional core exercises can make your gap worse??? That is why it is extremely important to workout SAFELY and CORRECTLY after having a baby. The first step to modify workouts is to know what exercises to avoid. There are 6 movements to avoid —basically anything that puts your back on the horizontal plane (lying down or planking) and all twists. This is because of the laws of physics and forces that pull on the core in these positions. 🌸
If you are doing workouts like #barre #yoga #Pilates #bbg, etc and have #diastasisrecti then make sure you are evaluated by a healthcare provider who can educate you on the moves to avoid before your workout! Most doctors will clear you for exercise at your 6 week #postpartum check without assessing your abs. Ask them to! Or ask for a physical therapy referral.

Did you know evaluating your diastasis recti is NOT just about the width? When most people measure their abdominal gap they speak of it if terms of width. However it’s important to take into account:
🌸 the width🌸 (measurement side to side usually referred to by finger tips wide)
🌸the length🌸 (for example sternum to belly button),
🌸 the depth🌸of the gap also reveals a lot about the severity of your gap, and also 🌸the tension🌸 of the linea alba (the line in the midline of your abdomen). When evaluating your #diastasisrecti from these four angles you can get a better picture of your condition. This information gives a better sense of what your recovery looks like and what treatments work better for you! 🌸🌸🌸🌸 Remember not to check your diastasis too often or you can weaken or damage the tissues, making your gap worse. Also, we don’t recommend testing for diastasis until about 6 months #postpartum as nearly all #postpartummoms will have some degree of #abdominalseperation after #birth. #momlife #diastasisrectirepair #abdominoplasty #physicaltherapist #womenshealth #thefutureisfemale #umbilicalhernia #ventralhernia #musclerepair #womenshealth #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #physicaltherapy #diastasis #lineaalba #gap #mummytummy #mommytummy #magnoliaptandwellness #atlantaphysicaltherapy #atlpt #atlantafitness #atlantawomenshealth #atlantamoms

#herniasurgery #umbilicalhernia

Since I stopped doing my normal workouts, I fell off of making videos.

Mostly because I was very uncomfortable to show my yoga skills....or lack there of.🤣 However, I realized I’m doing myself a disservice!! One of the things I appreciated about doing videos is being able to see my FORM so I could adjust and improve.

I definitely see room for improvement on my PiYo pike and v-sit, but I’m also happy with what I was able to do and even push myself a little!

I feel like I’m starting over in my journey and as frustrating as it has been with my health issues, I’m super stoked to get stronger again.

I LOVED how I used to feel and that’s what I want. It’s not the size of my clothes or number on a scale. Feeling my BEST is truly where it’s at.

If you want to join an amazing and supportive community to work towards the same goal, then let’s talk sister!
You will not only love how you feel, but who you get to do it with!! ❤️#operationfitby40

Surgery number 2 for my #umbilicalhernia with the best 💙 @haily_flores #nervous

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we all did?? Sometimes we can need a little help so BE the light for others today.

Spread sunshine, rainbows and love wherever you go!☀️🌈❤️

Sloane slept for 9.5 hours straight last night so this momma was able to get her workout in early! I feel like a whole new person.🙋🏼 She did wake up 12 minutes into my workout but I was able to pause, feed and change her and then she joined me for the rest!👊🏼 Such a good feeling starting the day off this way.🎉 Cheers to you, Thursday!

@Regranned from @magnoliaptw - 🌸 Let’s talk about #tummytucksurgery. 🌸 I’m going to talk about three different types. There are more than that, but this is the most basic. 🌸🌸🌸🌸 The mini vs the full. In a full tummy tuck diastasis needs to be repaired past the belly button. In a mini, the diastasis (or abdominal gap) is only gaping RIGHT at the level of the belly button and below. 🌸 The fleur de lis is performed when there is excess skin and tissue that will not be removed with a typical cut (around the c section level, see pics). 🌸 As for drain vs drainless, this is up to the surgeon. Some claim that drainless is the newest, most up to date, way to go. Other surgeons swear by the drain. The drain is to collect excess fluid accumulation. Whenever there is trauma to the body (yes Surgery is trauma) then the body’s swells up. The acute inflammatory stage is 10-14 days. These means that the most swelling will likely occur in those first 2 weeks of surgery. What is swelling ? It’s fluid. So this is the fluid being drained so that it doesn’t cause a pocket of fluid to collect, which may case the tissues not to bind. Think of your skin, connective tissue, fat, and muscle like lasagna layers. They need to all stick together!!!! 🌸🌸🌸 The purpose of @magnoliaptw is for education only.  Magnolia and associated Social Media sites do not serve as medical advice for the public.  If you have a medical condition, please contact your health care provider.

I’ll admit, my effort was not the best for my workout this morning, but I just couldn’t resist this guy!!😍 He wanted to jump in and do it with me and I can never say no to that!

He does a better three point balance and half moon pose than I do!! 😉

So proud to be his mama!!❤️

The choice is ALWAYS yours.❤️

ENDORPHINS...come to momma!👊🏼 I so needed that sweat. Not for my goals. Not for the number on the scale. Not for anything but myself and my mind.

Being a mom is the HARDEST thing I've ever done.😭 So thankful for my sister for face timing with me so we could work out together. Because if it weren't for her, I would've turned my workout off...again.👎🏼

So this morning I did something I haven't done in a LONG TIME.

I stopped my workout 9 minutes in because I had a screaming baby and a toddler hanging all over me.🙋🏼 I had good intentions, rolled out of bed and put my workout clothes on, pumped, had a snack, and even had Tenley out of the house with a friend for 20 minutes. I thought things were looking up BUT the girls had other intentions.

Stopping altogether rather than fighting through the chaos this morning was necessary.
I was able to spend the rest of my morning at a dear friends house while Tenley was able to play and Sloane calmed down...finally.

This #momma is exhausted.🙋🏼 I have high hopes of starting my workout over sometime this afternoon...fingers crossed!🙏🏻

I’m grateful for all my struggles because it’s through them I’ve found my STRENGTH.💪🏼
✨🙏🏼✨
