Highlights From Our Week:
Sisters having a chat.
The rain didn’t stop Madison.
We squeeze in some outside play time in between all the rain storms.
Lyla starting to grab at her toys.
Flourless chocolate plantain cake. A perfect way to end a higher carb day.
Getting back in shape, especially after baby #2, and being a mom can look easy on social media. But reality it’s hard work. I’m trying my best and figuring out life with 2 kids and being a mompreneur.
I am a little over 4 months postpartum and staying active the best I can. I’ve been continuing to do my Retrain Your Core core safe exercises along with my postpartum safe workouts to regain my whole body strength one workout at a time.
The strength of my abs aren’t coming back as quickly as I would like, but I know healing the body after having a baby, let alone a second baby, takes time. I haven’t been sitting in proper alignment so I know this is making my healing journey take longer, and as a trainer, I know better. But it’s reality and I am okay with it. I am human. I am not perfect.
This belly carried 2 babies and I have not had surgery, extreme dieting or restrictions, or used any quick fixes to get where I am today. I am so proud of where I am today with my body!
I share my postpartum journey to be an inspiration. Not to be like, “oh look at me” or all the focus be on “abs” or showing off my body. I share my journey to be real, honest about my progress and to inspire other women to enjoy the journey, learn to love their bodies and to embrace a mindful active healthy lifestyle.
Also, my deep love of the core has grown so much since becoming a mom and dealing with diastasis. I know what it is like to have a weak core and have this scary bulge come out of your belly! That’s also why I share my abs here to promote what a strong core is, as it’s so much more than 6 pack abs.
There are deeper muscles that need more focus and attention and I hope to inspire girls to start taking care of their core now even before getting pregnant. And to be an inspiration to moms that it’s never too late to start training your core better.
She cannot wait to “move” and to keep up with her sister.
I treasure the times Madison wants to snuggle.
We discussed snacks inside #theFIITparty
One snack we love is our chocolate tahini chia protein balls
What is a favorite snack of yours?
Towards the end of the week, the sun started to come out!
Madison can’t go through a day without painting 😉
