All 3 pics are roughly a year apart & I’ve gotten STRONGER each year! 😃🙌🏼
A year before Mia, 9 months pregnant & 11 months postpartum.
Isn’t the woman’s body incredible! It literally morphs itself into a home for little humans! 🙌🏼 Before I was pregnant, while and after
I’ve received comment such as: “you’re too skinny, too lean, too muscly, too manly, not enough shape, not feminine etc. While I was pregnant they said: “You’ll be like other fitness models & personal trainers and you will barely show, won’t gain any weight & will snap back easily”.
I also was told my body would be “ruined” and I’ll never get it “back”. While pregnant I gained roughly 24kg, I didn’t have a small belly🤰🙊 and I didn’t snap back at all. It took a LOT of hard work and consistency and definitely wasn’t easy and it TOOK TIME - It took almost a year to get back to the fitness level I had prior to being pregnant! I did it healthily, without overdoing it and of course while Mia was my absolute priority. I worked on my business and traveled overseas numerous times for work. Also contrary to what people assume I don’t have a nanny, cleaner, or family nearby to help... of course there’s nothing wrong with having help, in fact I think it’s important to but I personally haven’t had it. I’ve made sure I shared the whole process of my postpartum journey and shared my most vulnerable times when I had tough days, baby blues, self doubts as a mother. I showed myself when I was far from my best in the hope it helps some of you to know that nobody is perfect & to believe in yourselves, go for the things you want in life and never give up. Life is tough, you have bad days and sometimes you feel like throwing in the towel (I did many times) but you CAN do it.
Don’t ever listen to negative people who doubt you and put you down. Don’t let them bring you down to their level - they want you to feel as unhappy as they do unfortunately.
You are AMAZING & worthy - you can do anything you set your mind to just don’t let negative Nancy’s distract you - there’s a lot of them out there but there are far more kind, supportive people out there so make sure you surround yourself with them!☺️
X Love Em.
