This is post partum! I feel on social media we see so many moms with the tiniest bellies just days after giving birth. I’ve heard plenty of you’ll “bounce back quick” the reality is I don’t care! I just carried my baby in this tummy for 10 months. I just went through 20+ hours of labor. Whether you bounce back quick or not it’s all normal. I’ve talked about this a lot and your mental state and being comfortable in your own skin is so much more important. (Something I struggled with during pregnancy) This journey has taught me so much and what’s really important to me. Caring for Knoxy and being the happiest mom is what I care about. Your looks will come and go but who you are as a person, mother, care giver or wife are so much more fulfilling. When the time is right I will get to where I want. There is nothing you or I can’t achieve and put your mind to 🥰
Little different #transformationtuesday this week! I’m swing into week 15 (in Friday!) so I figured I’d share my week 14 bumpdate!! .
Things I’ve noticed: everything is getting.... wider 😂 my torso is wider, my hips are wider, my chest is “wider”, if you will 😂 and I’m noticing foods have a MUCH bigger impact on my water retention than they normally do, so I’m going to start being more mindful of that because I work up feeling like an actual balloon from the weekend and it was not a fun feeling 😂 but overall, things are awesome! Been keeping up with my daily workouts in my virtual gym group, getting my superfoods in for the babe and I, and happy to be into the second trimester!! Baby doubling in size every week now and I’m definitely starting to feel it in my lower abs, so working on some core stability to help that! ❤️ .
I definitely feel like I’m “filling out” but wouldn’t say have a “bump” yet, per say. my whole abdomen feels like a bump cause it’s so much wider, maybe it’s cause I’m so tall it just spreads it out? 😂 when did you get a real “bump”?! 👇👇
Did you know that in Canada, 1 child in 5 is at risk of starting the school day on an empty stomach? and did you know this is due to a lack of access to nutritious food? We can both do something about it and in partnership with Mott's Fruitsations and celebrity author Alexandra Diaz we want to help the Breakfast Club of Canada 💕 For every cup of Mott's Fruitsations purchased, one will be donated to them. Let's spread the joy, let's help more this year, and let's be merry together!
Mama kept saying she looked like a pigeon, but it's okay. At least she's a cute pigeon & was warm ofc..... ||| p.s by the time we got to big bear, she didn't want to stay for long even with thicker layers .. Her first words while in -2.2 degrees celsius were "We'll stay for a short time. If we stay too long, we'll die". haha 🥶🥶

Things that truly make me happy
Dancing in the kitchen. Hearing a small voice say mom, ma or mommy. Being told there is one chicken capresse left just for me in the Starbucks line. Eating a black olive pizza from Casey’s. Doing everything in ranch. Drinking my favorite cup of hot green tea or coffee. Inappropriate texts from my bestie. Nature.mountains. Long showers. Fuzzy socks. Music. People who love me unconditionally and finding my new favorite pair of leggings that coincidentally look like the other 12 pair I have. Turns out I am one lucky gal and I am so blessed. Xo

Self care. What are you doing for yourself in 2019? Are you setting yourself up for success. Are you putting yourself first? Are you ready to take back your life. 2018 taught me a lot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was going down a very dark path. Suffering from FLC syndrome. You’ll know what that is right? “Feel Like Crap” Syndrome. My symptoms were a mile long. Digestion issues, fatigue, not being able to sleep at night, brain fog, memory issues, aches + pains, migraines, anxiety, depression and really not wanting to get out of bed in the morning. And you better believe it scared the crap out of me. There were moments when I thought Alzheimer’s was settling in. Im thirty I thought how can this be happening!? So in the middle of 2018 I decided to put me first and get my health in check. I started with Nutrition Response Testing, which then led me to see a Functional Medicine MD, which then led me to the @medicalmedium. Within months I’ve found myself back to optimal health. Feeling better than I have in years. Shedding happy tears as I type! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s taken me so time to realize that my mother’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s has been bittersweet. The pain of losing her has been brutal but it’s also been a gift. Sounds strange right? She’s given me many gifts in my life but what she’s given me now is health. She’s empowered me to take my life back! Health for me, health for my husband, health for my kids and the close ones around me. This journey started almost three years go when I joined the mission with @beautycounter advocating for safer beauty and realizing what we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in our bodies. Which then lead me down the path of stress management, self care + self love. It’s all connected and we all deserve to live our best life! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I ask, what are you doing for yourself in 2019? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s Talk Extended Breastfeeding…. Now when I first had my baby I never thought I would still be nursing at 18 months and you might be thinking are you one of those hippies that are going to nurse their kid until they go to kindergarten?…. First let me just say I’m not a hippie. Ha.
Most people automatically assume I’m no longer nursing and when they find out there is a bit of shock on there face. I don’t nurse her as often as I did for that first year, but I have always feed her on demand.
Now let me explain the reasons why I’m still currently nursing:
1. When my daughter turned 1, we tried to give her milk. Literally every milk you could think of she refused every nut milk coconut milk or cows milk. So, I just kept nursing.
2. Its Stinking Convenient!
3. The health benefits of babe receiving antibodies. And the chance of prevention of other illnesses including allergies.
4. It literally solves every problem. Boo boos, tears, teething, sickness, the ultimate sleep aid, and when all else fails a great bargaining tool.
5. I no longer must pump at night or at work. Let’s face it pumping sucks! And waking up at night to do so sucks even more!! But I don’t have to do either anymore.
6. I’m not doing it for me. There are some days when I wanted to quite but I’m so blessed that I’ve been able to do this for her.
As a mom we are always going to be needed for something and it’s not always going to be easy. We make sacrifices for our kids on the daily and for me I know that I’m doing it for her and no one else. I know there’s lots of studies out there, some are for it and some are against. But as parents we are the ones that must decide what is best for our children. Just like there are some that must give formula instead of nursing. No matter the reason the important thing is that our babies are fed, and you know best because you’re their mother!
