My 12 week journey post baby has been overall a great reflection, a few bumps, lots of happy moments, frustrations, and more.
In 12 weeks I’ve used my journal, my supplements, my goals I want to achieve, my husband(trainer 🤪) all as motivation to keep me on track.
I’ve realized no journey is perfect, I am very far from perfect but I’m doing my best to be what I want to be! I bought myself a coffee cup as soon as I saw it because it hits a lot of feels in my life. “Don’t let anyone ever dull your sparkle!” And I’ve lived by that quote after making changes in life for the better!
Body and mind go hand in hand. I don’t deprive myself, trust me. Do I choose not to eat after 6, 7 or 8pm daily? Yes. Do I choose to wake up early three days a week to get in a workout before my kids wake up. Yes. Does it make me a better mom? Yes. So, I’m winning. Do I take 2-3 rest days a week either doing no workout or 20 minutes of yoga? Yes. That in itself has made me so much more appreciative of what your body is capable of doing! I have been told I’m crazy for running a marathon 5 months post baby, but I’m training for it, I will be ready and I listen to my body. I ran 10 miles last week very effortlessly and woke up with no soreness!
Another reflection, at the end of the day, it’s our choice, whether we want to lose weight, gain muscle, fit in those favorite pants, sleep better. You can get guidance from people, but at the end of the day, you are in control of your success. No one makes you eat the extra food, or miss your workout, or stay on your phone or watch tv too late in the evening. Make the right choices to ensure you have success!
Two days away from my 30th birthday and I’m feeling fabulous! I’m at pre baby weight, but besides that, I feel absolutely amazing in my skin! Confidence doesn’t always come from the number on the scale, it takes work and time to get to where you want and the way I look at it, is I still have a long journey left and I’m excited to see what else my body is capable of! I’m just happy with my 12 week post partum results!
