A few months ago, I lost my dog and it made me start re-thinking a lot of things. He meant a lot to me and I just realized how much time I didn't spend with him before he was gone because I was too busy during nap time trying to film a makeup video, or photograph an outfit.Read More
You never realize how much being close to the ocean can make you feel relaxed regardless of if you never actually get in the water.
I normally take day trips to Galveston to meet a couple of girlfriends up for business talks and food. It is nice to be close to the water, enjoy some alone time and get a bit inspired at times.Read More
I am 6 months post partum and I am finally starting to feel good in my clothing, isn't that crazy?
We need to stop allowing the world to tell us when we should be back to "normal".
I don't have money to pay someone to consistently train me and tell me what to eat. I'm doing the things my gym offers and my life allows. Doing your best is better then doing nothing at all.
I have loose skin because I rapidly grew the first few months I was pregnant and put on 30lbs pretty quickly. Everyone at 6 months would ask if I was due any day now, my answer was always nope 3 more months.
C-sections are no fucking joke, you are sliced open in an area you use to do a lot of things, sitting up being one of them. And honestly you don't realize how much of those muscles you use until you can't use them or it hurts to do so.
Before I got my membership I felt like I was never going to look good again, my ass was flat [still kind of is 🤦🏽♀️], my love handles were huge and I just felt like shit in general. Going to the gym has helped me so much feel better, and eat better because let's be real who wants to eat the little calories they burn during a workout. You eat better, you drink more water, and you exercise you look and feel better.
Now I'm starting to feel better in my clothing and old stuff is getting a little less snug but it took me 6 months and it will take even longer for me to get where I want to be.
I don't feel pressured I just know I can do better and look better.
But I just wanted to put this out there for anyone who felt like they aren't living up to societies standards, because honestly society isn't living up to my standards now a days so fuck society.
What do/did you do to make yourself feel better after baby?
