“I didn’t get any stretch marks with my first two babies and I felt so lucky. But third times a charm and I got about 10-15 long and wide stretch marks, plus loose skin in my lower abdomen area. So for these last few weeks of prep I’ve gotten really diligent about using my lipoxyderm twice a day to help tighten that skin and minimize my stretch marks as much as possible!!! #postpartum#postpartumbody#3kids ”
So obviously I’m obsessed with this picture, because it’s only TWO months postpartum. I was far from skinny before I had “Pootsie”, but love that my body is 90% back to normal. I’m starting this page because I want to keep the privacy of my child. Not that I need to explain myself, but things with my ex didn’t work out, haven’t heard from or seen my ex since I was 4 weeks pregnant and I want to keep it that way! Being a 24/7, sole parent is HARD FUCKING WORK MAN! I get easily frustrated, and sometimes need my mom to just help me out for a second to gather my thoughts but this is what I was meant to do. I was meant to be this awesome Mommy and am so excited to see where this journey takes me 🖤🖤 Thanks for tagging along 😛🤙🏼😘 #Mommy#postpartumbody#singlemom#boymom#wannabeblogger#stretchmarks

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY// I'm finding that I really like strength/weights day! And as someone who doesn't like working out, that's huge! I don't like working out, but I like how I feel when I'm healthy and strong. So, I workout.
Discipline > motivation
Share a transformation with us and let us celebrate you and encourage each other.
Day 2. Round 2. Upper fix EXTREME
I typically workout when everyone is asleep or if my hubby is watching the boys ... Sometimes things don't always go AS PLANNED.
Does that mean I stop?! NO!! Don't let your kids be YOUR EXCUSE
Let them be what DRIVES YOU! 🏋
More cuteness from @target !! Ever since being pregnant/ I started nursing I've loved these soft and stretchy sports bras. And thanks to my ever/changing bra size, it's great that these don't break the bank and the v-neck makes it easy to nurse in 💗 Target has the cutest stuff right now! 😍
My favorite time of day chair pose hanging out with my little guy! He puts he biggest 😊on my face, I ❤️picking him up from school and walking home through Central Park together.
I dropped him off at school and I had been holding his hand all the way there. I had my backpack, water, all of those things that I leave the house with; after I dropped him at school I left thinking I must be missing something, and I realized it was his hand.
Starting a new program and meal plan today. 7 days, new workout each day (as my arm permits) and a 7 options for each meal! Simple and effective. Before you make it a lifestyle, make it a week! Are you willing to try a week with me?
Un avant/après, la première photo date d’avant ma grossesse (en fait non, j’étais enceinte mais je ne le savais pas encore) et la deuxième date de maintenant dans mon corps de jeune maman (12 semaines après la grossesse). Un an presque tout juste sépare ces deux photos Je ne fais pas trop dire combien de kilos de différence entre les deux, probablement entre 5 et 10 mais sur la première photo je n’étais pas au poids le plus bas de mon régime. L’idée est de pouvoir faire un avant-après inversé dans quelques semaines, mois puisque j’ai repris mon régime alimentaire depuis peu. Entre ces deux photos, j’ai porté la vie, j’ai porté mon fils, notre fils, notre plus joli cadeau. Alors même si je souhaite me sentir bien dans mon corps comme avant, j’accepte d’être comme cela aujourd’hui, je remercie même mon corps d’avoir mené à bien cette magnifique grossesse.
La suite, bientôt !
So after my down day yesterday I've pulled up my positive pants and my heads in a new space.
This body. This body grew two healthy humans. Two beautiful, funny and loving little people. So why am I being so tough on myself? Maybe because I see pictures of the 19 year old skinny me. Maybe because I see other mums who have kids and are back to a size 8 straight away or maybe just because the media and social media are the devil and they put so much damn pressure on women to look like the models. You know what middle fingers up to the medias standards of how women should look, especially after having children. My damn body carried two babies in under two years. Do my children look at me and think any less of me because my body is not perfect? Nope. They love me because I'm their mummy and that's all I ask. This body is under construction but for now I'll be happy with myself because my body created the gift of life and I don't think a couple of extra pounds of fat compares to my little humans. It took 9 months to grow my little guy so why do I expect to be a skinny Minnie within 5 weeks?. There will always be someone smaller than me and that's ok. The media will always show the perfect mum body airbrushed with no stretch marks and perfectly toned. But for the majority of us real mamas who have those stretch marks and that little baby fat. You the real MVP! #mumbody#postpartum#postpartumbody#postpartumbelly#realmum#newborn#5weeksold
As I've noted before.. i noticed that I'm starting to let down more. This is right after nursing 🤗🤗 the output is not a lot but I think achieving the letdown is what is most important for me to increase my supply!! I can even achieve a small letdown again while pumping. My baby can trigger more than 1 now. Progress 💪🏻🙌🏻 & hi stretch marks! 🙋🏻
You are loved. Massively. Ferociously. Unconditionally. The Universe is totally freaking out about how awesome you are. It’s got you wrapped in a warm gorilla hug of adoration. It wants to give you everything you desire. It wants you to be happy. It wants you to see what it sees in you - You are a Badass 📖✨
After baby number 1, I was able to drop my weight with the quickness. The second time around I had #twins and it hasn't been easy finding time or being consistent. I'm determined to be strong again. I work out whenever and wherever even on vacation. I'm so motivated by @ichoosefitness__ and @ichoosefitness__juton that I took the #legextension challenge. It was tough! Try it.
I wasn't even sure I would get this far!! This is a year and a half ago and yesterday!! It wasn't easy. I didn't love working out everyday. I didn't want to eat my healthy foods instead of stuffing my face with junk. I was scared that this was my new normal.
I STRUGGLED AND STILL STRUGGLE EVERYDAY!! I know I'm not alone. The ladies that are on this journey with me are showing me that they are right next to me. We are there for each other. We aren't all in the same spot in our journey and that's ok.
In my first journey it took a 4yrs, a break up, my heart to be crushed, and my world to be totally flipped upside down.
To be honest my first transformation was done out of anger. (I've always felt like I should hide that. Because I was ashamed) Yes I went on a journey to find out how to love myself but only because I was crushed.
I feel like this journey is harder. I love my life, my family, and have everything I could ever want. (Except for my body back) I feel selfish sometimes when I think of all I have and still want more.
But can you truly enjoy your life if your uncomfortable in your own skin?? How many of you ladies feel this way?? I'm looking to help 10 new ladies and to share my this journey with them. I want to walk with you in this. Show you what has worked for me and what hasn't. This doesn't have to be scary or super hard.
Comment below or message me for me details!!👇💌
What do you eat for lunch?? I shared this with my fit moms group yesterday. 👇
A lot of people ask me what I eat to sustain my results? I’m often not sure what to say... Food?
Do I eat tacos? 🙋 Yup
Do I eat carbs? 🙋 Yup
Do I eat dessert? 🙋 Heck yeah!
My meal plans are all about eating real food in proper portions. That’s it! I still struggle with eating too much cereal and chocolate, but that’s where my superfood shake comes in to keep me in check!
Anyone else have a cereal weakness? Mine started with pregnancy and I STILL struggle!
I haven't done a transformation pic in awhile, so here is my #transformationtuesday . There is 11 months between these two pictures and 40 pounds.
Eating clean 2 weeks after having a baby, while skipping sleep, taking care of a newborn and 3 other kids was not a piece of cake. Especially when I tend to use desserts as a stress reliever😄😭. I didn't even make it back to the gym until the baby was around four months old. My body took a lot longer to recover this time around with a hard pregnancy and this being my 4th. I had my 2 oldest daughter's in soccer and dance and I would cart all 4 kids with my tubberware dinners to all the events. It was so hard, but I was determined to get my body back. Transforming your body and your life is never easy, but you CAN do it. I did it, and it is sooo worth it!!!!
quick but delicious breakfast before heading out the door this morning
plain greek yogurt with berries & sprouted avocado toast with an egg & @traderjoes everything but the bagel seasoning (literally tastes like an everything bagel)
1 year ago today I took my very last (EVER!) pregnancy picture.
So much has changed in a year from relationships, to jobs, to friendships to body composition.
In a year I’ve been pregnancy, I’ve been fat, I’ve been lean, I’ve been SUPER lean, I’ve been photoshoot ready, I’ve been bulking and now I’m back to maintaining before I drop down again.
The point is: you are always changing. Your body is always changing. What you look like now, may not be what you look like in a year. Embrace all the changes!

It's been a little over a month since my body performed the most amazing (and painful) thing it's ever endured. Carrying and growing a tiny human inside me gave me the most body confidence I've ever experienced, even more than I felt at the peak of being physically fit pre-pregnancy. An unmedicated labor and delivery empowered me beyond belief, I've never felt stronger than the night I brought our little girl into this world. Now that the main event is over it's time to regain focus. The extent of the "damage" from birth was enough to keep me from resuming any sort of light workout routine until now, even plain old walking caused pain. I've left it up to my body to do what it needed to rest and heal. Breastfeeding alone has helped shed pounds, but I'm certain lifting weights regularly during the majority of my pregnancy benefited me in postpartum recovery. I'm finally able and EAGER AS HELL to pick up the weights again and regain control of my body. I suppose I'll have to give up the nutty bars too. #postpartumjourney#postpartumbody#pushedoutababy#mamaneedasquatrack
