⚠️WARNING⚠️ This post might be unpleasant so if you don’t like it, just keep scrolling 🙃. Since it is Cesarean Awareness Month....this is the REALITY of carrying your baby for some-odd months (not everyone goes full term) and having to have a cesarean delivery. Why do women that have vaginal delivery say that c-section moms have it easier? How is THIS easier? An incision from hip bone to hip bone, cutting through your muscle, safely trying to get to your baby. How are we “less of a mother” than those women? My stretch marks and scar are my way to remember what I had to go through to protect Arya. The pain, the new insecurities, you don’t feel beautiful anymore. I would close the door to take a shower (which I never do) and I would cry because of what my body looks like, and btw, that “flap” that you get is very much real too. I’m just pulling it up so you can see the scar. You just have to remember why you have that. Remember that the little bundle of joy you saved (in an emergency situation) is here because you went through with it. #cesareanmommy#battlescars#stretchmarks#reality#beingamom#workingtogetmybodyback#igdaily#momsofinstagram#itsNOTeasier#cesareanawarenessmonth
Like my new shirt?
I finally submitted my result from last years reset and got my free shirt. I'll be submitting my current results soon for another free shirt. Did you know you can earn a free shirt for every program you complete?...I just love free tshirts!
Anyway, I was excited Thursday when I was able to make it through this minute in the ab workout. I have always had to put my feet down at least once. I had to share today! When I first did this I modified the entire minute. So excited to feel the difference and see the difference in my core strength.
What might seem impossible when you first start will not seem as bad as you get stronger...and you will get stronger. Just keep the faith my friend!
In only two short weeks it will mark the first full year since my dad's death. It still stings today just as much as it did then. Not any less. I received this thoughtful gift from my aunt with an explanation of why this quote from my dad was significant to her- "I've always lived right above my feet". Although opening this package hit me like a ton of bricks, like memories of him often do, it was just what I needed in my life today. #missingyou#itsnoteasier#itstillstings#missingyoualways
A couple things I want to point out from each picture.
1) my hair!! Lol I start with a bun and it ends like that... 2) notice my red face? I used to HATE WORKING OUT because of that red face and the feeling that comes with it. I've learned to embrace it. 💜 it's my hard work.
3) the little band people put on their wrist... Shaun T has broken me into using it. Never in my life had I needed it. #day4#itsnoteasier#iamstronger#andstinky
You'll understand all my feeling when you push yourself to limits you didn't know you count be pushed. Are you ready?! PM me!
