I've said some of this before, but when you're a new mom on a #postpartumjourney, you want to share with other moms what is possible... And what happens emotionally when you're trying to "get your body back." To be honest there are days I don't like that phrase. Like get it BACK? Why can't we celebrate every form our bodies take? Why can't our goals be to be healthy for our healths sake? For our families sake? For our children... So they have a strong example of how to take care of and honor their bodies... I wasn't ashamed of my body on the left picture. That girl there, she carried a baby for 40+ weeks & delivered via "last-minute-decision-c-section", dude I'm proud of that girl! But there were still some facts, I knew that the excess weight for ME was not healthy.. I knew how weak & tired my body was after that surgery & not being able to work out for 6 weeks, and I knew where my mindset was at. Of course I was over the moon in love w my baby- but I needed the work out ME time. I needed to sweat and feel strong again... So I began, and I didn't stop. BUT- there are days that are FAR from perfect. Since delivering Cora 7 months ago... My eating has not been 100% clean, sometimes I JUST want pizza, I enjoy a glass of wine or a beer a couple of times a week, sometimes my work out is not fantastic, but you know what- in some respect (for myself) I show up every day... Small, consistent steps will ALWAYS get you to where you want to be... Am I the 120 lb., pre-baby, body I once was- NOPE!! I am a healthy, strong mama who is hopefully setting an example for her daughter that STRONG is more important than SKINNY & when you set out for a goal, you don't quit.
Mamas- I FEEL you. FEELING the way I felt on the left vs how I NOW FEEL on the right, is worth every minute I spend working out, meal prepping, making a daily shake, or reading personal development.
I am looking for 5 mamas who are looking for the "slow & steady" route to a happy, healthy lifestyle. I want to mentor you & guide you to not only look great- but FEEL great and better your overall health. Message me or comment below if you want in! We are going to kick things off Monday, August 1st.
