This “Mom Bod”

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

I’ve worked HARD for this mom bod. Two pregnancies. 50 pounds gained and lost the first time around, and 40ish pound gained and lost the second time. Breastfeeding sucked the life out of my boobs the frist time around, and we’re currently breastfeeding again so we’ll see whats left once shes done.

None of this bothers me though. I’m so proud of this body. I used to be so scared what pregnancy would do to my body, and sure enough every single thing I “worried” about happened. I have stretch marks on my stomach, my hups are wider, my boobs sag a little, my eyes have circles that don’t seem to go away, and somehow I love my body more now than I ever did before. It’s like motherhood taught me how to love myself.

I still workout and strive to reach fitness goals, but man does it feel good to just love myself along the way.

I have stretch marks on my stomach, my hips are wider, my boobs sag a little, my eyes have circles that don’t seem to go away, and somehow I love my body more now than I ever did before. Motherhood really taught me about the things that matter in life.

I still workout and strive to reach fitness goals though, and man does it feel good to just love myself along the way. At this point you’re probably like, “cool good for you, but how did you get to this place?” and I can tell you it definitely did not happen overnight, but here are some of my tips on how I’ve gotten here:

1. Workout Daily. I know this seems obvious, but truly working out helps me feel so good and gives me the confidence that I am moving toward my goals. And scientifically speaking endorphins, endorphins make you happy, so the more regularly you’re releasing them the more happy you’ll be.

2. Eat healthy nutrient dense foods. I don’t follow any crazy diet thats restrictive nor do I obsess over how many calories I’m eating. I simply focus on eating the best food that I can and in doing so I feel really freaking good about myself for my decisions. I do make sure I’m getting proper serving sizes and amounts, but really the less I stress about my food the easier it is to actually eat healthy.

3. I read personal development books. You know the books from the self help section of the book store. I used to think that those books were for anyone but me, and it turns out reading books that help you feel good about yourself are for ANYONE and EVERYONE. This whole self love thing is a mindset, and truly finding books where you connect with the author and have a breakthrough mentally are amazing. My first personal development book I ever read was You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero. LIFE. CHANGING. Seriously, reading that book helped me dive into my online coaching career and never look back.

4. Unfollow any accounts that make you feel bad, and follow accounts that bring positivity and inspiration to your IG feed. The things we feed ourselves daily can either lift us up or bring us down. So fill your feed with things that inpsire you and make you feel like the absolute goddess that you are. It truly makes a difference.

5. Be aware of the things you tell yourself. This goes hand in hand with the previous tip. Not only is it important to be aware of outer influences, but we have to be super aware of the things we tell ourselves. If you tell yourself you can or can’t do something, you’re right.
