Nine months ago, when i started my postpartum journey, i remember the feelings of not recognizing my body at first.
i didn’t feel good in my skin.
.
it was a weird feeling and i wasn’t expecting that after all the effort i’ve put to stay active up to the last day of the pregnancy.
the postpartum journey, for me, was so much harder than keeping an active pregnancy.
it was hard bc i struggled mentally, was exhausted physically and had a little ray of sunshine that needed my attention 24/7.
.
but here i am today. time flew by.
all those days i’ve took half an hour or an hour when baby slept to do my workout, all those days i took time to make myself something healthy to eat, all those days i’ve given myself a break. little by little they all payed off..i feel like i’ve earned my body back in a way. .
i am the most comfortable in my skin than i have ever been in my life.
and it feels like my mind and my body are in the same place.
something i never imagined 9 months ago.
.
consistency. hard work. giving yourself a break.
all of those things one day at a time.

We all try and make the best decisions as mothers, whether our minds made those decisions or our bodies decided for us. there are so many variables. so many reasons to take different directions. and so many reasons to celebrate each other no matter how different our directions may be. breastfeeding, formula feeding, exclusively pumping, supplementing, a mixture... whatever you’re doing and trying, @moderndaywonderland and i want you to know that you’re doing great, mama! - regrann from @meg.boggs -

You can do it too mumma’s.
hard work pays off if you’re willing to put in the effort. you don’t need to “eat less & do more” to achieve the results you want. you just need to eat right and be consistent with exercise 🌻 - regrann from @gabriellafitmum -

Wow what a difference 5 months can make!! aston has grown so much and it’s so lovely to see him enjoying his solids and interacting more and more each day! on the other hand, some things never change, like the bags under my eyes 🤣🙊🤣 parenting is tough! it’s tiring. and i guess that will be the same for a while yet. i always have to remind myself that my hubby and i are doing well!! we both work, run a photography business, take the kids to after school sports 5 days a week and manage our 4 kiddies pretty much on our own. bags under the eyes are a given! 😴😴🤣🤣

Ive been getting a lot of questions recently about my skin now that i’m hiit training consistently. is my skin getting looser and more wrinkly? is it tightening up as i tone up? am i doing anything to help my skin during the process? so i wanted to make a quick post for everyone who’s interested.
before i do though, i need to say that loose skin isn’t the end of the world, it doesn’t define you, it shouldn’t hinder you and you are beautiful no matter what. it may never reduce on its own, and that’s totally normal. and even if you are planning on trying to tighten or smooth out the texture of your skin, or are about to start any kind of fitness programme it is integral that you love and appreciate your body now and at every step of the way, because self love doesn’t come from anything external, it is a mind set.
so the top left photo was taken this morning, top right a few months ago, bottom left 8 months ago, and bottom right about 13 months ago.
if you swipe you’ll also see a mirror selfie from this morning and one from 6ish months ago.
my answer, my skin is absolutely getting tighter and less textured! the pouch above my scar has also reduced drastically. there are several skin care steps i’ve been taking daily to help improve the elasticity of my skin which i’ll discuss separately in another post if anyone’s interested. but another important thing to note is i’ve been working towards healing my diastasis recti everyday and i feel this has helped massively in shrinking my c-section overhang. i’ll be posting more updates on my skin/dr/ and belly pouch as my journey progresses 😊 .regrann from @mamaclog - .

Motherhood is a juggling act 😂 what areas do you struggle with in motherhood? mine is definitely the housework. i was talking with some friends the other day and we were talking about things we struggle with as moms. it got me thinking about how much dang pressure we put on ourselves to juggle everything perfectly. to have a banging postpartum body, kids well behaved, dress cute, have a clean house and always cook organic healthy food. i say s***w it all! ha but seriously i'm over it. so come on over to my dirty house, no makeup wearing face, kids half dressed and watch out for the dirty diaper on your way out. let's give ourselves some grace! - regrann from @julienfranks -

With my sweet #yemayakaryn just a year later.❤ it seems like ages ago that she was sleeping in our bed...or actually keeping us up all night.😉 as hard as those times were, i can honestly say i miss them. the cuddles, the nursing, the bonding. it all goes by so fast!🙈

I remember when my boys were all 5 and under, and what a crazy time that was for me! i also remember wondering and asking other parents with slightly older children if it got easier, because it just had to, right?!
.
this is for all of the mamas i hear from everyday wanting to know how to get through the day and how to make time for their health. you will get there. give yourself the time you need and keep pushing.
.
to the mothers who can’t find the energy to be as active as they want to be, you are not alone. to the mothers who are struggling to stay on top of the demands of parenthood, work, and life, you are not alone. to the mothers who have days they are wiping tears away because they feel like they are in the trenches, you are not alone. motherhood is hard, so hard i wonder how i had so many babies, but even on the hardest of days, every part of me knows it is worth it, and i remind myself, it’s hard because it’s important.
.
i didn’t bounce back after my pregnancies, it was probably closer to a crawl, but that was okay because i was moving forward. motherhood requires strength, energy, stamina, patience, and endurance, and small steps everyday have moved me forward for progress, not perfection, to have confidence to take on the day, and most of all be happier that i am doing something for me. we are raising the future, but we can't do it without taking care of ourselves as well.
.
✨get up each day striving to be better than yesterday—you are capable of being stronger than you ever knew was possible.
✨let go of all or nothing because every step counts.
✨encourage yourself just as you do your children with all progress.
✨believe it will get easier because it will.
✨spoil yourself with consistency.
✨embrace the chaos, and see the magic in the mess because there is beauty within it.
.
although we don't all share the exact same experience on this journey, there are many common threads, and we are in this together. parenthood is quite a journey, but if we pace ourselves, and cheer each other on, we will make the climb a great one! 💓

comment 33 star 4,476 Yesterday

I always try and choose to speak positivity over myself especially when it comes my new body. i know their truly is beauty in the wounds left behind after carrying my triplets, but if i’m being entirely honest, it has been especially hard the last couple of weeks to fully embrace my body like i normally do. i am not really sure why i have been so h*****n myself, but it has been difficult for me to see the beauty in my extra skin and saggy muffin top. 🌿

i know how important it is to be kind to myself. i know the power in self love. i talk about it all the time. yet here i am, struggling. forgive me, i’m only human, and i struggle too sometimes to fully embrace and love the extra jiggles, forever with me stretch marks, and the skin that just seems to sag. 🌿

today is just a hard day, but tomorrow is always a new day. a day in which i can choose to see the beauty in my body. self love is not easy, but it is the greatest gift we can give ourselves. it helps us to be strong and confident women. 🌿

for whatever reason it has been extra hard for me lately, but i know what the truth is. i am beautiful. my body is strong. my inner self is strong. i am sexy. i am brave and valued. i am so deeply loved. my body did a lot of work to carry my children and i will always choose to celebrate my body for what it is now even when it is hard to do. i will shake off the negative thoughts and remind myself that i longed for these wounds. i have to choose to appreciate my body. carrying and delivering a baby just changes your body. and it is okay to have hard days. 🌿

loving yourself is a one day at a time kind of journey. and some days are just more difficult than others. whatever you do and wherever you are in your journey, choose to do your best to love your beautiful and strong mom body because it did a lot to carry your children. 🌿

how is your postpartum journey going?

I have always loved my body in all the different periods 🍑 curvy and sexy body. heavy and oversized body. strong and sporty body. weak and mellow body. but i've never felt love that strong and thankful i feel now - postpartum. all the wrinkles and stretch marks constantly remind me about the pure cosmos of growing baby inside ❤
