Thanks to my preggo cravings (SUGAR!!!!) our Monday consists of cozy Jammie’s, candy canes, mini marshmallows by the fistful & one too many cups of hot chocolate...There’s really no one else in the world I’d rather laze around in a sugar coma with all day, so thx for being my bestie baby❤️ .

Two weeks postpartum! These boys are running me rampant!! . . . Total weight gained during my pregnancy: 35.6 pounds. . . Weight lost since giving birth: 38 pounds!! . . The swelling is still there and will continue to stay for the next 2-4 weeks. It kind of reminds me of the early weeks in my pregnancy! Lol. . . #thisispostpartum #twinmom #postpartumbody #postpartum #postpartumweightloss #postpartumbelly #postpartumjourney

So many new faces here after finishing up the giveaway with @deckandoar, Im so sad its over! I wanted to take the time to do a reintroduction of sorts. Im Kelly, the owner of Together We Mother and creator of the Postpartum Journal. I launched the journal about a month ago and have been fortunate to connect with so many amazing women in that short time. I created the journal from a really personal place, so its something that is extra special to me. I struggled with postpartum depression after the birth of my son, and through that, I developed such an intense passion for mothers. I have met so many women in my own life that have shared with me how hard it can be after having a baby and how alone it can feel at times. I wanted to create something that would encourage women to take more time to think and reflect on how they were doing through an incredibly special and challenging time. So much of the postpartum time is about the baby but YOU are just as important, and I want you to know and believe it. I dream of this journal being a tool to help with that. If you want to read more about the journal, I linked directly to the about page in my profile! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, the @_stillwerise auction started today, please go check it out! 100% of every dollar raised will go to @circleofhealth and @fams2gether, you wont want to miss it.

Yesterday I experienced a type of liberation I didnt understand until becoming a mom. Pax has had a rough few days, hes been cluster feeding in the evenings and VERY clingy. But last night I had to run an errand down in Shakopee, and @savagesarge got home in time for me to leave the baby with him. I was able to be alone. Like actually, truly, 100% alone. Dont get me wrong - I love our boy more than words can describe, but I have not had a single moment where I was really by myself, no other people with me, and not on call for a feed or a diaper change or a cuddle since before I had Paxton. This was my first true solo outing in 5+ weeks, and if Im being perfectly honest: IT. WAS. AMAZING. 🙌 So I drove down the 169 blasting my music with the windows rolled down (even though it was 24 degrees), and I relished every minute of it. I danced in my front seat and sang at the top of my lungs. I sang to strangers at stoplights. I absorbed my hour of glorious, loud, fun, chaotic peace. I refused to feel ashamed for enjoying my freedom. It recharged me. And I came back home feeling less stressed, happier, and ready to be a kickass mom and wife again. That was my self care. Im grateful to have a husband who was willing and able to give me that moment. Im grateful to have a baby whos willing to take a bottle so this mama can leave her baby with his daddy for a while. Im grateful for the reminder that its okay to want my body back, to want my personal space back, and to want a break. And for the reminder that I am able to be a better mom and wife and human being when I ask for the help I need 💙 . . . . #momtruth #authenticmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #boymom #selfcare #giveyourselfabreak #takecareofyourself #loveyourself #selfacceptance #musicup #windowsdown #noshame #momgame #survivingmotherhood #postpartumjourney

This run ALMOST didnt happen. I was feeling worn out and unmotivated today, and was coming up with every excuse to not go. Am I tired because Im a stay at home mom with 3 side hustles? Yes, for sure. But when I finally got my butt outside on this gorgeous Colorado day, I was so happy to be out there. Running is such a happy place for me, even when life is crazy. ☀️

- we had our two week check-up yesterday and someone was up 10oz from last week! I think its safe to say he loves to eat 🤣🐄 Im looking forward to getting cleared in a few weeks to begin some light pelvic floor exercises. With how pushing went for me, this is something Im really going to focus on healing to prevent long term issues. Ill be on the lookout for any suggestions on beginning exercises!

I was physically cleared to workout again 6 weeks postpartum, but it took a hell of a lot longer to be mentally ready! That was totally fine. Everyone has a different journey!! I eventually found my new groove with this pretty neat routine that fits perfectly into my busy days of momming and working full time and running a side biz coaching and vacuuming up cat and dog hair and being the worlds sweetest girlfriend (sorry I cut you out of these pics, babe!) Since I think its so perfect and it has worked so well for me for 4 years, I love to share about it and help new friends find their groove 👯‍♀️ Theres a link in my bio you can fill out if you want me to send you info on my sweet plan for health and fitness from home - or you can DM me. I do still have a VIP Launch Party on FB going on which is a great place to get to know me better and check out whats coming in 2019!! Let me know if youre down to (virtually) party with me! ☃️💞 · #introvertsunite #virtually #planningtime #santapics #meetsanta #newmomlife #newgroove #busybee #fulltimejob #momminainteasy #postpartumbelly #postpartumjourney #readyforwork #newgoals #sleighallday #slaygirlslay #sheworkshard #santaiknowhim #newbaby #oneyearlater #transformationtuesday #girlyoubekillinem #workbitch

2 weeks post partum today 🌟 I can’t believe 14 days ago I had a baby bump. My son is 2 weeks old today and I don’t know where that time went 🤷🏼‍♀️ I swear time passes faster the second time around. . . The last 2 weeks have been all about feeding Makaio, nappy changes, burping, poo explosions, breast pads, night sweats, dozens of showers, lack of sleep and lots of newborn cuddles. I honestly haven’t minded any of it and feel a lot more relaxed this time around, not as overwhelmed as I was with Jonah. I feel like I’m handling it and have more patience. I’m focusing on being grateful that I’ve had a very smooth and positive breastfeeding experience so far, the transition for Jonah has been gentle and successful, and that I have 2 beautiful healthy sons who are both thriving. . . Aside from the above I’ve been focusing on nourishing my body with the right foods to help with milk supply, my own energy levels and health. My body is responding very positively both inside and out, and is healing so well because of the nutrients it’s getting. Now that my body has healed a lot more in the last few days I feel a bit like my old self again. My sore muscles from my labour have recovered, my breasts are not longer engorged and overly sensitive and I’m getting a little more sleep each night. Things are improving each day and I’m getting things done around the house! I’m focusing on counting each positive and appreciating my body for all that it’s been through and all it continues to do daily. . . I’ve lost another 500g which leaves me with 4.5kgs to go until I’m back down to my pre baby weight. I gained 13kg total this pregnancy. I’m a lot softer all over and my butt is starting to get a little jiggly and lumpy but training will fix that when I decide to start again. There’s no rush though, all that will happen in due course and to be honest I like the way I’m looking and feeling at this moment. This newborn stage will pass all too quickly and my priority is savouring that before I do anything else 💙 . . #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #2weekspostpartum #postbaby #selflove #mothershape

I cut my anti-depressants in HALF in the past two months. I’ve been on meds for the past 16 years. And God Bless them. But I had to significantly increase my dose after having Parker as I had postpartum anxiety. Something I didn’t know much about as I was only familiar with PPD. Anyhoo - cut to a few months ago when we knew we wanted to plan baby 2, so I wanted to lower my meds .  I knew it would be a process and I had no clue how it would go but I was determined to try. In June, I started my first ever home workout program and I was hooked. I started my second in July and when that ended early September, I was going ALL IN. I had cut my dose by 25mg during that time and I had another 50mg to go. Enter my 80 Day Program. 6 days a week, 45-60 min a day. This was mental and physical training. And I was obsessed (no pun intended as the program is called 80 Day Obsession). Yes, its trying at time but in 11 weeks, I have only ever taken ONE additional rest day when my body was really sore and needed it.  And Im down to 50mg.  And I feel AMAZING.  I have even more energy and my happiness levels are the same as when I was on a higher dose -- actually, theyre probably even higher because I am taking such epic care of myself each and every single day. Now Im not saying that you need to work out for an hour 6 days a week to see results, but I am saying that you need to move.  Movement is key.  Consistent movement is imperative. It can take a village for sure - and thats why Im here.  I want you to feel as amazing as I do.  I have a brand new program that I launched VIP access only -- workouts are TWENTY MINUTES.  Thats right, 20 minutes a day.  6 days a week for 6 weeks.  36 different workouts with a stepper. You CAN do this.  You CAN feel amazing.  You CAN feel happy and wonderful and energized.  I promise. So lets throw in the towel on our excuses.  You have the time.  You have the money.  You just need the desire and the willingness.  Im here to support you every single step of the way.  I PROMISE you - at the end of the 6 weeks, you wont even recognize yourself. comment below if you want more info or message me.  you got this + I got you <3

And this is where I spend 80% of my day. Feeding. Rocking to sleep. Cuddling. Trying to eat my lunch without her trying to eat it too. Being a mom isn’t the most glamorous job in the entire world - but it sure is the best ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #bossmom #workingfromhome #buildingmyempire #fitmomma #postpartumbody #healthywife #postpartumjourney #strongmom #mommyhood #mombod #bestversionofme #mombod #postbabybody #postpartumlife #momsofig #mommabear #momswithmuscles #momswithtattoos #momswithcameras #motherhoodthroughinstagram #firsttimemom #firstbaby #mondaysbelike #sweatymess #michigangirl #coffeemom #luluaddict #makeupmom #mybabygirl💕 #motherhoodmoments

A little different kind of #transformationtuesday and it’s actually REALLY hard for me to be this RAW but I’ve got you mamas. The picture on the left was about 15 months post Harper and the one on the right is current—just 2.5 months post Bodie. Things seem a little slower this time around, but I’m embracing the journey. Why? Because I love this bod, I love everything it’s allowed me to do from running a half marathon (or two) to birthing two humans. And body positivity doesn’t always mean you’re not frustrated—I was frustrated with how WEAK I felt post baby number two. Just getting up from laying in bed was hard. Talk about no core strength AT ALL. ••• So I’m PROUD. I’m proud that getting up from bed isn’t hard anymore, both mentally and physically. I’m proud that I’ve upped my weights since 4 weeks ago. And I’m dang proud that I’m taking the time (like 30ish minutes because that’s all I have some days) to take a mental break. ••• So I don’t really give a crap how LONG my postpartum journey is this time. My intention is on filling my cup, helping other women feel good about themselves, and on being the best for my family. I’m so stoked to be on this journey with other ladies like me, who feel too busy to get to the gym consistently BUT need something that they can do more than once or twice per week. Trust me, I tried everything under the sun and then I found this 5 years ago and I was and still am HOOKED. We have a new year accountability group kicking off January 1st, so if you’re looking to start something that you can look forward to and actually do 💪🏼 we got you babe! . . . . . #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #healthyhabits #letsdothis #postpartumtransformation #toddlermom #10weekspostpartum #10weeksold #momoftwo #mumoftwo #mombod

Consistency is the key 🗝 You don’t need to rush your body, it can be discouraging putting in so much work and not seeing anything straight away but you need to push through! Hard work will always pay off and the natural way of doing things is the best way. Take it easy, give yourself all the support you need to enjoy being a healthier you 💕 #4monthdifference #transfromationtuesday #5monthspostpartum #postpartumfitness #bodytransformation

Probably one of my most favorite newborn expressions ever. Every single one of my babies has made this face when just waking up! #swoon

This photo was taken 13 hours after giving birth and honestly, I love it. I remember hating on myself and the way I looked so much after I had Queen O which makes me sad when I think about it. I wish I had been more appreciative of what my body had done at the time. Thankfully this time around I feel completely different. I nourished my body well this pregnancy, kept active until the end and was grateful every day for the baby I was growing. I managed to deliver her using gas and air only, which was the most painful and exhausting experience I’ve ever had but also the most empowering and exhilarating! It’s impossible to feel anything but love and gratitude for this body that carried and grew my little babe and then laboured and delivered her to me safely ❤️

Today was HARD! I’m not just talking about the workout (because that was pretty tough too) but I’m talking about toddler drama 😒 . . One thing I can always count on is my me time where I can get my blood pumping, release some energy, and take care of me. It’s not selfish, it’s part of not just physical health but mental health as well. Are you finding time to take care of YOURself today? . . #takingcareofme #prioritizeyou #stayathomemomlife #boymom #fitnessjourney #postpartumjourney #findthetime #momswhosweat #lifeofaboymom #selflove

We moved into a fixer upper home which is something we wanted. To us, we felt it was important to know how to fix up a house and make it a home. Slowly but surely we are updating everything but it’s taking quite some time! It’s been insanely fun to start fixing our house up annnnnd stressful 🤣 When the twins were about 8 months old we ripped a wall out in our kitchen to open it up. It was totally worth it but I lost some counter space (in a already small kitchen) so I had to get more creative. To get some of the congestion out of the kitchen I decided to make a space specifically for coffee OUT of the kitchen. No joke, that is the main thing people want when they are over and I’m cool with admitting I live off coffee 😂 I’m so glad we did. I call it my personal mommy bar ☕️. I started keeping my collagen right next to the coffee bar as well since I have a scoop a day in my daily brew! I always encourage my mom or whoever is over to try some too. I get my collagen from @ancientnutrition and have been since college. I use to think my sister was so weird for putting collagen in her coffee... I get it now @jennahlahood ! My main reason for having collagen daily is for skin health (helps reduce wrinkles and dryness - hayyyy!) but also because it helps increase muscle mass, prevent bone loss and relieve joint pain!

🎄Day 11 of transformations!🎄 Meet Lori!!! This is what she says about her own transformation and the nutrition program! “I am Lori and I am one of the coaches with autoimmune issues, I have RA and Fibromyalgia and I am proof that 2B Mindset does work, without additional exercise! The first pic is from February 2016 prior to starting any Beachbody program, the second photo is from today. I have lost 27 lbs so far and I feel amazing!”

Transformation Tuesday 💥 Last year’s Christmas party and this year’s. . I never thought it would be possible to love my body more after having a c-section. I DID NOT want a c-section 🙅🏼‍♀️. I did everything from laying upside down on an ironing board to having a Dr. attempt to physically move Silas inside my belly (ouch!) In the end he was perfectly happy being stuck and I went under the knife. 🤷🏼‍♀️ . I was lucky that a lot of my baby weight came off quite easily after having Silas. However, my body was not what it was. I lost definition and strength, the area above my scar was loose and puffed out, and I had a flat butt. These things are all perfectly fine, but for me I felt self conscious about them. I decided to do something about it. . In just a few months, I am now stronger, leaner, & more defined than I ever was pre-baby. 💪🏼 Thank you to my new fitness programs for both kicking my ass and showing me just what my body is capable of. I am so proud of everything it’s done in the last 1.5 years. 🤰🏼💙. . Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your body or your confidence. If you’re willing to put in the work your body will respond. Don’t have the time? ⏱ The newest program released is only 20 minutes/ day. Guaranteed you have 20 min because you’re scrolling social media right now. Work for it mama, get your groove back! Send me a DM for details. 🍑💪🏼🍑💪🏼🍑💪🏼🍑💪🏼🍑

Day 16/80 - 3lbs down in 16 days & officially at pre-pregnancy weight which brings me to a Transformation Tuesday Post - From almost 4 months post partum 5 years ago with my 2nd, to almost 4 months post partum with my twins. I’m always working at being better than I was. #fitness #postpartumbody #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #80dayobsession #beachbodyondemand #fitnessmotivation #transformationtuesday #twinmom #twinmomlife #twinmom #healthylifestyle #healthyandhappy #mombodytransformation

Such an amazing visual! So much to look at here... // // 1~Low back on the ❌ - Maybe the most obvious, but look at how the natural curve is gone. This is a recipe for low back pain and disc issues = abs turned off. Low back on the ✔️ - Nice natural curve, happy back, happy discs, abs turned on. // // 2~Neck/Cervical on the ❌ - Look at how the neck is jutting forward. Not a happy neck, spine = painful posture. On the ✔️ you can see how the spine in nice and tall, you literally just have to pull yourself tall and have a slight chin tuck, this will help to get you in the ✔️. // // 3~Pelvis position on the ❌ couldnt be more tucked. This will cause low back pain, pelvic floor pain/issues, even neck and shoulder issues since its all connected! Not to mention how this can contribute to prolapse. On the ✔️ the pelvis is in a nice neutral position, causing the correct muscles to fire, as needed, and helping the whole system to work together! // // This is a great habit to focus on 👍 when sitting at work, traffic lights in the car, eating - try to FEEL what muscles are working to get the nice, neutral ✔️ position! Thanks for sharing this pic @kwsofttissuetherapy ❤️

Exhausted? Have you had your iron and thyroid levels checked? It’s normal to feel tired but a health check is worth doing just in case your tiredness is not just due to lack of sleep. . . . #BoobieBikkies #quoteoftheday #parentingquotes #kidsquotes #motherquotes #instaquote #lovethelittlethings #livethelittlethings #firsttimemum #instamum #motheranddaughter #motherandson #motherhood #motherhoodrising #motherslove #mumfashion #mumlife #mummyblogger #mummylife #mummytime #mumsofinstagram #mumswithcameras #newmum #postnatal #postpartum #postpartumjourney #sahm #wahm #mum

This is really hard for me to post, but if you know me Im all about keeping it real... This is my 3 month postpartum body in all its flabby, stretch marked glory. I know were supposed to love our bodies, but honestly, right now I dont. Im tired of feeling bad about myself and its high time I started doing something about it! My first and most important goal is to heal my diastasis recti, which you can see in the first picture. The one on the left is relaxed, right is flexed. I have about a two finger gap right now. Next is get my booty back! And all-around strength because Ive lost most of my muscle mass. Im ready to get SWOLE! I know its going to be hard, but I am determined and hard-headed (just ask my husband!) I could sit around and feel sorry for myself or I can get up and start working towards what I want. The only way anything is going to change is if I make it happen! So heres to the beginning of my postpartum fitness journey! . . . . #3monthspostpartum #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumfitness #diastasisrecti #diastasisrectirecovery #takingbackpostpartum #selfmotivation

Can you believe it’s about to be 2019 😳 So many things to reflect on.. such an epic.. powerful.. stressful.. incredible.. beautifully chaotic year! I really have been doing so much reflecting lately and it’s incredible how much has changed.. mentally and physically in my life. . . When I stand and look at myself I see such a different woman than I did a year ago and I look forward to so much new and exciting and unknown changes that are going to come next year. I’m so proud of where I am and so proud of the ability to continue to reflect and grow. . . As a physical therapist one of my main job duties is to constantly be re evaluating and re assessing my patients levels, what are their strengths, what are their weakness and where have they progressed and then it’s my job to set goals and a plan of care and follow through to help them achieve maximum quality of life! . . This is honestly how we should be approaching life.. we should never be too complacent or stationary.. slow progress is better than no progress as I tell my patients, but the key to progress is self awareness and understanding where you are and what you need to improve on. Being our own “life clinicians”, being able to “self diagnose” what areas we need to work on and setting realistic and appropriate goals and then setting in place a plan of action and being CONSISTENT in working toward those goals also being aware that set backs and deviations will occurs and never giving up! . . Just some beautiful thoughts for your Tuesday afternoon! Xo

One year ago! I was teaching a message today about #goalsetting ..it’s okay to reevaluate your goals as you change and grow. Your mindset can change, circumstances change.. goals with #fitness can be tricky if your mindset isn’t in check. What’s driving you? Throughout my pregnancy and early in my #postpartumjourney I felt like I had something to prove. Like I had to prove that it was possible to be fit throughout an uncomplicated pregnancy and that it was possible to recover well in postpartum if everything went smoothly..not all women are given that chance. Not all pregnancies are easy. Some births can be traumatic. #postpartumdepression hits more mamas than you could imagine. As my work with moms has progressed, changed and morphed-I’ve also progressed, changed and morphed- in fitness, in self, my own journey. My heart hurts when I hear women’s stories- not only in postpartum but young successful women- struggling with their body image, their relationship with food, expectations and unrealistic goal setting for themselves. I work with so many people that are in a constant state of stress around their goals.. which is why I ask this question. If you reach your goal- would all of those feelings go away? If you reach your weight, your pant size, your 10km goal, whatever it may be, are you going to feel good with YOU. Because YOU are going with you, and when you reach the end, it’ll still be you. I hope that you can wake up and give yourself a high five and some positive affirmations, allow yourself to push but also allow yourself to slow down. Allow yourself to continue to set goals but also allow yourself to check in and ask yourself WHY. Is it #acceptance from others or is it #selfacceptance.. is it insecurity or confidence? I look back at myself from a year ago and I don’t know that girl- and that’s okay. My life has changed, my body, my mind.. #personaltrainer #postpartumfitness #orilliaontario #goals

Warning ⚠️ graphic photo alert. #csectionrecovery . So i am 2 weeks post partum and I want to share my post partum journey with my followers and this is a mega one. Two weeks ago I was sat on the toilet for 3 hours high on pain relief and exhausted, I was trying to pee so I could go home it was something I had to do the nurse had given me a JUG to fill 😩😂 it took me 3 hours, in those 3 hours I fell asleep about 6 times, drank about 15 cups of water listened to the tap running for 2 and a half hours, ate 3 bites of toast and cried, Cried because I wanted to sit and cuddle my new born. Not because I was in excruciating agony. And my muscles were fucked 😒😂 . . Two weeks on I have been on a journey to not necessarily loose weight but with a seven year old, and ergun ( my husband) working away all week I need to ensure my energy levels are up and want to keep as healthy as possible for Mavi and Arli. . . Two weeks post partum, I can run up stairs, I’ve been walking to school for a week now twice a day pushing arli in his pram, I’ve been bathing my seven year old putting his socks on for him and in general back to normal with my life (just with slight pain) ... my energy levels are high I feel great and here we have my results of weight loss not that I’m stressing I’m just tracking them and totally blown away by the results to say this is baby number two. From the bottom left We have 9 months pregnant- two days post partum (serious kangaroo pouch) one week post partum and then now two weeks post partum. . . And now my secret.... ‘The tea green capsules’ I’ve been taking one capsule a day every morning and they are fantastic!!! if you need a little extra energy or maybe would like to start the new year a better version of you then get in touch so I can give you all the info 🙏🏼❤️ . . #postpartumbody #postpartum #csectionrecovery #csectionscar #mummydiaries #motherhood #afterbirth #csectionto6pack #postpartumjourney #thenandnow #newborn #babynumbertwo #healthandwellbeing #healthyliving

Je me suis poussé. Même quand ça brûlait. Même quand javais pu de souffle pis que je me disais que jétais pu capable. Je me suis donné à un autre niveau. Je me suis défoulé en crime, après un matin mouvementé. Cétait une nouvelle expérience, pis imagine, javais même pas le step ! 😬 Jai trippé parce quil te ramène à vraiment te concentrer sur toi. Pas comment ton amie sest donné comparé toi. Pas combien de répétitions que la personne dans la télé a faite. Mais vraiment toi. De te comparer avec ta performance seulement. 👌 . Cest vraiment venu me chercher. Étant donné que je suis satisfaite avec ce donc mon physique à laire, on dirait que cétait rendu difficile de me fixer des objectifs. Fak là, ça va être une toute autre game. Jai tellement hâte au 14 janvier, tas même pas idée. . Conquer your mins, transform your life. . P.S.

No filter. No lighting adjustments. No before and after. Just me as I currently am. #16weekspostpartum I am still beautiful and worthy of loving my body. My body has not decreased in value just because my stomach isnt flat or because I have stretch marks or love handles. This body has created and grown 5 babies! There is my sweet 2yr old, pushing and playing with my tummy while yelling squishy! And my job is to teach her and show her that my ability to love my body is not based on numbers. Its not based on how quickly I can bounce back from having a baby or how many muscles or abs it might have one day. The ability to love my body, the shell of my spirit, comes because I have intrinsic value and recognize that. That doesnt mean I dont hard days or times I wish I could drop the weight faster or compare myself to others- BUT I dont stay there. I pick myself up and move forward. I remind myself Im the one that has to live with me so I better love myself and my body. So mommas, ladies, teens and yes men too, love that body. Say thank you to it and appreciate it! #takebackpostpartum #selflove #momof5 #myjourney #imstillbeautiful #twinmom #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #bodyafterbaby #bodyafterbabies #tummy #postpartumtummy #mommytummy #intrinsicvalue #fitfam #fitmom #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged

I. JUST. CANT.❤ Kids watch everything you do! Ashton was an amazing workout partner today!!🙌👌 @shaunt like my workout buddy today for some T25?!😊😍 #beachbody #fitmom #postpartumjourney #postpartumfitness #T25 #workingoutathome

3 weeks is all it takes 👌🏻 i can post all the motivational quotes, show you all the crazy transformations, invite you to my accountability groups BUT you’re the one that has to step up and accept the challenge 🙏🏻 i can give you a meal plan, recipes, a workout program to do at home, a shake that will change your life, and a badass group of ladies that will become like family - you just have to want to change more than you want to sit on the couch and binge Netflix 🔥 and luckily you still have time to commit to the new you before 2019 comes 💃🏼 let’s do this!!

We enjoyed some Christmas fun Saturday night and miss Annabelle had a blast minus the Santa encounter 😂 Santa is still a hard no for her this year (even the blow up type Santa’s are not okay 🎅🏻) But all in all it was a good night. Trying to get a family picture on the other hand is proven to be very difficult 🤦‍♀️

7 week old Jeanne! || Now that I’m 7 weeks into this two kid thing, I’m starting to realize that I’m going to have to get creative when it comes to finding time to workout and just have a few minutes kid-free each day. There’s a lot of crying in my house and TBH it really gets to me if I haven’t been able to work out or have any quiet time that day. I get so busy taking care of my kids I totally forget about myself. . Still trying to figure out how I’m going to squeeze this in but I’m sure I’ll think of something. Joey has always been a great napper so I used to be able to get in at least 90 min everyday to workout, do house things, and chill out for a few minutes - I never appreciated it as much as I should have. Things have definitely changed! . How do you ensure time for a workout or find a few kid-free minutes everyday? I’d love some ideas.

Once upon a time i set a goal to be able to do a strong hand stand and hold it for 1 minute. It may seem easy/small to most- i had so many tips come into my DMs with people who can do it flawlessly but to me, it was big. A big goal, something different, and a challenge. It had been a while since i set a goal for myself. I was pretty relentless (ask ethan who i fell on a lot lol) but i can do it and i’m proud of myself ❤️ Now swipe to see the chaos that takes place when i spend 5 minutes for myself 😂😂😂 #smallvictory

😰😰😰. She was so small. I can’t believe I am old enough to now be the mom that looks back at their kids and thinks they were so young! Please stop growing Luna Rae!

Every cell in your body is listening... When you feel like giving up thats the point where real change happens. This is is true accutely in a workout when your lungs are screaming for air but you push through it, you change physically (and mentally). Its true when youre habits have been slipping and you are loosing motivation to stick to the path but you choose to continue, you change internally (and physically). Your inner dialouge is paramount to the success or failure of what you you set out to acheive. Its always an inner battle as often as a physical one. You are a warrior. 1 week postpartum vs 10 months postpartum . . . . . . . . . . . #growth #selflove #fitmum #fitness #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumfitness #fitness #warrior #positivevibes #journey #outdoorfitness #romaniangirl #woman #winning #student #sportpsychology #whatyouthinkyoubecome #gymmotivation #motherhood #health #soul #bathroomselfie

Celebrating his 8 month old birthday with a new Christmas outfit that will go right back under the tree since he won’t remember, a trip to hobby lobby and a third day of no school tomorrow for his parents! I don’t know who’s more excited 😜 What a month with this little babe. He’s high on watching cars go by, big on pulling Charley’s tail and hasn’t found one food he doesn’t like yet. He wants nothing to do with crawling but will race around in his truck and crash into just about anything. Christmas with this little man is going to be something magical! ♥️

I love how she stares at me like I’m the most amazing thing in the world. The feeling is mutual my girl 💕

Just a typical Tuesday working on my laundry mountain but decided I’d take pause and share my best kept secret this holiday season! These holi-ball ornaments are on SALE now for only $30.

Dont make any rash decisions. * * * Heres the low down on how to deal with the bumpy scaly itchy redness down low. Link in bio. ☝️

“hey Griswold, where do you think you’re gonna put a tree that big.” ⠀ ⠀ “she’s a beaut, Clark.”⠀ ⠀ “looks great! Little full, lotta sap.”⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Our plan was to get the babe a #cozycoupe for Christmas. But Mick had the bright idea to ask on Facebook if anyone had one they wanted to get rid of before we bought one. AND A FRIEND DID! So we saved ourselves $50 and saved our friends from having to move it.⠀ ⠀ My parents get a small tree every year. Once I knew we were getting the coupe, I asked when and if they could hold off on putting it up because I wanted to recreate this picture. ⠀ ⠀ They held off. ⠀ ⠀ Dad was 100% committed to this picture.⠀ ⠀ It turned out better than I could have imagined. 🙌🏼⠀ ⠀ #pinterestwin #littletikes

Consistency is the key 🗝 You don’t need to rush your body, it can be discouraging putting in so much work and not seeing anything straight away but you need to push through! Hard work will always pay off and the natural way of doing things is the best way. Take it easy, give yourself all the support you need to enjoy being a healthier you 💕 #4monthdifference #transfromationtuesday #5monthspostpartum #postpartumfitness

A babe free afternoon, two hours as a passenger while hubby drives, heck yes I bring my computer along with me! I wish I could share even a little of the feedback I’m getting on today’s freebie workout, but there is too much to share! Keywords in my inbox: SWEAT. LOVE. SO GOOD. THE BURN. MY LEGS. And my favourite— I’M IN!! Sometimes you need to try before you buy, I totally get that. And right now, you have that opportunity 🤗. Back to my inbox before it‘s back to babe! Work now, play later — aka finally get our Christmas tree in the house (maybe decorated, baby steps 😉🙊). You got your link to try it out right?!

Check out this delicious healthy snack, a simple recipe from the holistic health and nutrition program Ive recently joined called The Healthstyle Emporium. I love that theyre all easy and free of nasty ingredients. Here is the recipe: Ingredients: Cooking Spray or coconut oil for greasing 1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained 1/2 cup natural peanut butter or nut/seed butter of your choice 1/3 cup pure maple syrup 2 teaspoons vanilla 1/2 tsp pink himalayn salt 1/4 teaspoon baking powder (GF) 1/4 teaspoon baking soda (GF) 1/3 cup combination vegan dark chocolate chips and chocolate chunks Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and line a square 8×8 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray or grease with coconut oil and set aside, 2. In a food processor, mix together beans, nut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, baking powder, baking soda. Process until smooth and beans are combined well. 3. With a spatula, fold in chocolate chips, reserving a couple of tablespoons for sprinkling. Spread batter evenly in pan and finish by sprinkling leftover chocolate chips on top. 4. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Batter will look done on the edges and perhaps under-cooked in the middle, but do not over-bake! 5. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before slicing into squares. you’re welcome. 🧚🏼‍♀️🌿

That 30 second transformation is really something, isn’t it!? 😅🤪😱🤯 ▪️ THIS is why I love our high waists though! Because they make me so feel SO GOOD! Don’t get me wrong, I love my body, that belly roll and all, but it can be discouraging to feel that roll pouring over your leggings. Insert Zyia leggings and 🙌🏼🥳🎉 I feel so confident!!! Not to mention the actual support I feel and how it reminds me to engage my core! ▪️ I know this is a hard time of the year to buy things for yourself... but get yourself one pair and let’s get ready to crush those New Years goals together!!!!!
