This is the first time in a long time that I’ve shared a pic with any belly showing. Actually the last time was winter 2014 during our honeymoon 😊 Before the pregnancies and abdominal surgery and diastasis recti. Since then I’ve never been comfortable sharing pics of myself in general. I wasn’t looking for the snapback to a “good body.” I just wanted to feel like myself.
Over the last 6 months I’ve worked really hard to get into better physical shape, but even harder to get my mental strength to a level that I could be proud of and my girls could look up to. While I was cutting back on the carbs I was also cutting back on negative self talk. I’ve tried to find ways to quantify my progress just like lifting more weight in the gym makes me feel stronger. So far, so good!
I guess what I’m saying is that I feel pretty positive and wanna let y’all know. It’s not just the strength I’m getting in the gym, but the routine, consistency and results have had a ton to do with it. But even more than that, it’s realizing that I’m strong. Periodt.
I recently went against everything I previously thought about being a brand ambassador and joined the Just Strong team. It’s a great fitness wear brand but an even better support system of strong women from all over the world.
