❌ Reality ❌
In LOVE with this reality check from @sandrauhrdin 🙌
I have so many new mamas approach me post pregnancy, ready to immediately get their bodies back.
But here’s the thing, motherhood and pregnancy is a beautiful thing and YOU DO NOT NEED TO RUSH. Social media is plastered with before and after transformations of new moms but every body is different, so please stop comparing.
Slow down. Enjoy the time with your little one. Take steps to be healthy every day.
Your body will recover.
You will get back in shape.
It’s NORMAL to feel uncomfortable in your skin for a bit.
Give it time, and love, and enjoy. You don’t have to be perfect. No one is.
Keep going mamas you’re doing great. 💕
Anxiety is a b*t*h
Today was one of the bad ones and after working myself into an anxious nauseous mess, the last thing I wanted to do was workout.
But I know better.
I threw on workout clothes and got it done anyway.
Why??? Because I truly do believe fitness is one of the most underutilized mental health tools out there.
I challenge you to try it next time…
Go MOVE… you’ll be so happy that you did
You ready for the SECRET to weight loss SUCCESS?! It’s NOT a wrap, a pill, a fat burner, a skinny tea or a shake.
It can’t be BOTTLED up, marketed, or SOLD…. although everyone does try.
It’s not GLAMOUROUS, Fancy, or FAST…
It’s CONSISTENCY. Day in and day out staying consistent with healthy habits. Even when you don’t really feel like it. Even when it feels like it’s taking forever. Even when you have a bad day. And despite all of your OBSTACLES and excuses, you still stick with it.
Just stay CONSISTENT. I promise…it works. Day one was a success…onto day two
There is a story behind this very odd picture I promise… see that flub I’m holding. I noticed it in my bathing suit the other day and smiled.. odd reaction right?!
What you don’t know is one of the few college memories I have is of that flub. I remember noticing it for the first time at school. I stood in my Mitchell hall dorm room for about 20 minutes analyzing it, crying, squeezing, poking, and pinching.
I was starting to increase my calories after years of restricting and I was miserable in my skin… looking back I was still incredibly underweight at the time, but I didn’t feel it.
So why did I see it and smile?! Because I took it as a sign that ANYTHING that weighs on your mind can be OVERCOME. It just takes time, but you can do it too
