"I'm still fat,but I'm not as fat as I used to be so I got that going for me." HAHA ,but seriously all jokes aside I still hesitate to post this because I have been having a hard time excepting my body after pregnancy. Yes it's such a wonderful experince bringing a new life into the world (especially your own child I honestly can't describe it), but it's hard to except your new post baby body with stretch marks,a baby pooch, loose skin and hormones all over the place. That make your thoughts run wild and your self esteem beyond low. Not to mention sleep deprivation for the first 2 months. Most people by now are at there pre-pregnancy weight. I have only lost 30lbs, but I'm damn proud of it! It's really hard to find time with such a busy daughter, but sometimes you have to put yourself first. I still have a LONG ways to go, but I never thought I would have the time or motivation so I'm proud of myself and if this post helps anyone else who just had a baby and feels lower than dirt just take a deep breath and realize your hormones are all over the place you just had a baby that you were carrying for 9 months in you and it will get better! Cherish the time cuddling your newborn baby because they grow fast💞Thank you for reading. #motherhood #postpartum #30lbsdown #lchf #selfesteem #21weekspostpartum
5am run with these ladies 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️
My last Crossfit session will be tomorrow. I have started Kayla Itsines application and I feel like I never went to the gym before... I am very challenged with all this body weight workouts. Sooo hard after the c-section but I can’t wait to see the results just to compare with Crossfit. My new routine starts from this week! #sweat #kaylaitsines #kaylabbg #sweatwithkayla #newmum #mummy #mumma #21weekspostpartum #5monthspostpartum #bodyweighttraining #bodyweightworkout #workoutathome #workoutathomemom #fitfam #fitfamily #healthylifestyle

When Shaun t says sweat intervals he definitely means #sweat and another perfect #maxout time this week. My last week of month 1 and #killingit ! Modifying but still rocking it! #strongmama #itdoesntgeteasieryoujustgetstronger #insanitymax30 #digdeeper #imaxedout #icandothis #cardio #21weekspostpartum
What a morning! Last cardio challenge for the month and I went from maxing out at 10:57 to going the whole workout. Yes I modify but hey it’s better than nothing! Definitely proud of myself. #insanitymax30 #imaxedout #maxout #cardio #sweat #strongmama #itdoesntgeteasieryoujustgetstronger #digdeeper #21weekspostpartum #icandothis
What a workout this morning with #lesmillspump pump and shred! Feeling super #strong this morning #strongmama #21weekspostpartum #standtall #kiakaha #bestrong
Not as good at last week only by 8 seconds though but still pushed play after a round night with the baby! #imaxedout #insanitymax30 #itdoesntgeteasieryoujustgetstronger #strongmama #icandothis #21weekspostpartum #digdeeper
Those diamond pushups get me every time! Just a little longer on my #maxout time compared to Tuesday but I’ll take it! Plus got my 40 second plank in after I crushed my shoulders #imaxedout #insanitymax30 #strongmama #itdoesntgeteasieryoujustgetstronger #21weekspostpartum #strength #digdeeper #icandothis
The moment when you get your belt back into the holes!! It’s mad how much your body can change in a year. I am currently using my belt to help me relearn how to breath correctly in the squat position and to help my posture through the movement. I would never advise my clients to use a belt on lighter lifts and I am doing back and ab exercises within in my programme. I am also following advise from a physiotherapist after my tiny human stole my back and core. #personaltrainer #strength #conditioning #energy #endurance #focus #fitness #workout #healthy #nutrition #exercise #weightlifting #powerlifting #cardio #workinprogress #health #knowledge #alwayslearning #youvegotthis #nevergiveup #motivation #workliftbalance #strongishappy #girlswholift #Wisdom4Weightlifting #postpartum #21weekspostpartum #alwaysbuilding

Squats for days! Simple move, yet many do not follow proper form and function. Remember, knees behind your toes, weight in heals, power up through you heals. And always challenge yourself with the right weight! #trainingperspective #lifeofamassagetherapist #lifeofatrainer #squatsfordays #ilovetoworkout #iworkout #mypostpartumjourney ##21weekspostpartum #fitmomma #squatprogression
#latepost #happyinternationalyogaday #internationalyogaday2018 #21weekspostpartum I would like to talk about #postpartumyoga on this day. We are usually worried about our weight and try to get back in to shape after pregnancy; trying to look the same as we were before, wanting to fit in the dress that was bought before pregnancy, yearning to look the same(mostly aiming at skinny) BUT PLEASE don’t be so hard on yourself. #postpartumyoga is about staying #healthy and #fit .It is about #rejuvenating your #bodyandmind so that you could have the time of your life with the #miracle that came out of you. Let your body take its own course, don’t rush and accept the beautiful you that you have become. #stayawesome just the way u r #mommy #yoga #yogi #yogini #asana #hathayoga #yogaasana #yogaaddict #yogacommunity #yogaeverydamnday #yogafit #tolasana #armbalance #yogagram #yogainspiration #yogajourney #yogalove #postpartumfitness
I know selfies of me and Smith are only going to keep so many of you around, but it’s just what I’ve got right now guys. its groundbreaking content if you ask me. 🤷🏼‍♀️ but seriously, it’s hard for me to get on here post and interact “positively” when really... i’m struggling. some days i’m hurting. i’m not struggling to take care of Smith. I enjoy being with him. emotionally the toll that postpartum has taken on me is really rocking my world. compound that with little sleep and yeah, it’s rough. i’m also going bald it would appear so life really knows how to keep me on my toes.😂 I know i’ll “be okay” it’s not the hardest thing anyone has ever gone through, but it’s maybe one of mine? I can say that i’ve never really felt lonely in my life...except in this season. i’m experiencing loneliness like i’ve never felt. that’s just being honest. and that’s just the honesty that’s semi-instagrammable. it’s embarrassing for me to admit all of this if i’m honest. def hurts my pride, but this is the process of trying to extinguish that pride. anyway, I don’t have much to offer or say but look how precious this Smithy boy is. he keeps me going. #loveyou #5monthspostpartum ✨✨✨important edit: kirk and I are GOOD, he loves me so well and I love him so much! some things I gotta go at alone & day to day motherhood stuff (while he works SO HARD to provide for us) is one of those things.
35weeks pregnant here and I feel like I’m squatting/dealing with life better here than I am at 21weeks postnatal!! 😭😭 Having one of THOSE weeks and it’s only Tuesday!! I have to keep reminding MYSELF never mind the rest of my clients that it takes 9-10 months to grow a little one.. so I’ve gotta be realistic that it will and should take the same amount of time to feel like yourself again in relation to exercise.. and everything else!! 😂🙈 Core/pelvicfloor/diastasis Recti/ strength/ Bodyfat.. the list goes on!! 😂 Tomorrow’s another day!! Anyone else feel like this?! 😂🤞🏻 #bodyfitmums #mumof2 #21weekspostpartum #35weekspregnant #prenatal #gettingittight #badday #squats #core #pelvicfloor #diastasisrecti #strength #mums #fitmums #babies #tomorrowsanotherday #keepingitreal #mumlife #postnatal #postnatalfitness #northernireland #portadown #lisburn
5 IN 60 EMOM // 3 moves. 5 reps (2 sides = 1 rep on 1 & 3). 10 rounds. Work through all 3 exercises as quickly as possible with good form within a 60s interval, resting any remaining time before the next minute starts. Try to beat or maintain your time each round. This real-time video shows 45s is achievable. Warm up your core, hips & shoulders first. ✨ 1. Glider side lunges 2. Glider walkout to crunch 3. Glider plank reaches * If you have Diastisis Recti, regress to no glider crunch and 1/2 plank reaches. Always prioritise deep core recruitment and prevent abdominal doming. If you’re not sure what any of that means, check in with a women’s health physio or postnatal PT first. ✨ For the first time in dayyys I’ve woken feeling healthy, focused and energetic (well, the kind of energetic you feel on 6 hours of broken sleep, but this is a new mum talking 💆🏻‍♀️). Looking forward to quality time with my babe, seeing friends and family, some strong workouts (inc week 3 of 4 #slingfit today! 🤱🏻) and making progress on an exciting project. Monday motivation at an all-time high! Wishing you a positive start to the week!
With the right filter, lighting, and if you look at this with a 45 degree angle after you cross your eyes, you might be able to see that my delts are coming out to play again. Also.

Je vous jure que c’est payant de s’entraîner avec bébé!! 👍 J’ai été raquée!!! 🔥 Pour les mamans que ça intéresse j’ai mis un montage vidéo sur mon Facebook! #21weekspostpartum #7weekspostpartum #babytraining
GOOD LIGHTING VS BAD LIGHTING These photos were all taken within the same week but the last one was taken in my kitchen and shows off my mum bod perfectly 😂 I don’t even care though. I genuinely feel the most relaxed and happy about my body than I’ve ever felt before. Maybe it’s because I now have a baby as an excuse to no longer have the ‘perfect physique’ or maybe it’s because I’ve suddenly realised there’s more to life. Yes I do want to lose the rest of my baby weight but if it never happens it won’t be the end of the world. Instagram is my favourite social platform but it’s also one of the worst for photoshopped images and unrealistic body goals because who ever takes photos in bad lighting? Certainly not me 🙋🏻‍♀️ So here’s your reminder that not everything is as it seems and in reality we’ve all got wobbly bits & cellulite. And that’s ok.
Here’s one for the mum’s with young babies! This was actually quite tough even though Dexter isn’t that heavy! I did 20 reps of each exercise except the pulsing lunges where I did 12 reps on each leg. Repeat the workout 3-5 times. Beware of the baby dribble when you’re doing the chest press though! 😂😂
You know what I love about nutrition and fitness? Your body can and will constantly evolve! Picture 1 was within the first week postpartum and picture 2 is today. #newprograms #lift #iworkout #21weekspostpartum #5monthspostpartum #mypostpartumjourney
Well. That was brutal! Still about 14 minutes off my PR from Raleigh last year. But...for not training for a half I’ll take it. Oh yeah, and I gave birth less than five months ago AND I’m full time at home so I have very VERY limited time to train...also stupid tight hip flexors from nursing babe...not making excuses just telling you how it really is to be a #motherunner BUUUUUT look at the smile my friend @hilary_runs captured!!! THIS was my goal. To finish strong. This course will destroy your knees if you’re not careful! I’m glad I chose to take the hills easy so I could at least go fastish during the middle miles. The miles by the river were flat but the rest of this course was either steep up or steep down. I chose to walk through every water station and drank 2 - 3 cups. Trying to stay hydrated for my baby and myself! Still nursing her primarily! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Baby well-being over PRs! 😍Also chose to either Powerwalk or kinda hop up the stupid steep hills. This was by far the most elevation gain I’ve had in a LONG time. My biggest goal was to finish feeling stronger than I did in Nashville. In Nashville I started struggling very early on. But this race I finished feeling very strong indeed! Mission accomplished. However, I will run Nashville any day over this course!!! 🤣 #motherrunner #ashevillenc #asheville #ashevillehalfmarathon #ouch #21weekspostpartum
So after a really tough week I have had a 1lb loss which is much better than expected. Austin isn't sleeping so I am absolutely shattered. Not having the energy to eat in the day then reaching for quick sugar fixes at night and skipping dinner. Tomorrow is a new day and a new week and after going to group tonight I am feeling a lot more positive about the week ahead. #slimmingworldfamily #slimmingworldfamilyuk #slimmingworldfriends #slimmingworldmafia #slimmingworldfollowers #slimmingworldfollowersuk #weightloss #weightlossjourney #babyweightloss #babyweightlossjourney #postpartum #postpartumweightloss #21weekspostpartum #slimmingworldmums #swmums #healthyeating #healthyeatingjourney   #slimmingworldplan #instafood #foodporn #weighday #weighin #weighinday

Longest none stop run yet! 💪🏻 (bar a few nose blow stops #sinuses ). Time on the watch is the real completion time. Also note the map stops a while before the start point as there is no way I’m running up the hill to mine...yet 😉#10ktraining #york10k #mapmyrun #postpartumfitness #postpartumexercise #21weekspostpartum

CARBS‼️🙌🏻 Why is everyone so afraid of them⁉️😆🍞We need a certain amount for energy and if you choose them wisely, they are nutritious and can be enjoyed! ☺️🙌🏻Everything in moderation and portions are indeed important (one cup of rice/pasta, 2 slices of bread per day)! 😊I enjoy wholegrains, quinoa, brown rice spelt, buckwheat noodles/crackers/pasta and sprouted grain bread! 👌🏻I find they digest easier and I have no bloating! 😁Enjoyed a nice sandwich in the local Orange Peel cafe....brie, sprouts, avocado and chicken! 😋 . . #irishgirl #irishfitfam #fuel #energy #protein #healthy #nutrition #healthyeating #irishblogger #blogger #foodie #healthychoices #irishinoz #healthylifestyle #greens #healthyeats #balanced #postpartum #wellbeing #21weekspostpartum #5monthspostpartum #lunch #sydneycafe #innerwest #sydneyeats #carbs #sandwich #nursingmom #breastfeeding

My little pineapple is 5 months! 🍍 It feels like I just made her 4 month board. 😭 She has the sweetest personality. I just love her so much. 💛 This little girl is going to really be on the move soon. Just with her rolling over and inching away, it was so much harder to take pictures. 😂😂 Here is to another fun month of adventure! 💛🍍💛🍍💛🍍💛
#transformation I’ve got one day left of phase 2 of my programme from @brickbuiltstrength i am very pleased with my results so far the programme is so fun and I’m feeling stronger in all my lifts each week, i can now deadlift more than my body weight which i couldn’t do before, my back is looking a lot stronger and i can tell when i do pull-ups.. I’m looking forward to seeing the end results after the final phase #postpartumfitness #fitmom #fitmum #fitfam #hybrid #strengthtraining #momof3 #21weekspostpartum #bodybuilding #crossfit

Another run for the books. 🏃🏼‍♀️ I was able to run solo this morning while baby daddy watched Riley. Took off waaaayyy too fast but it felt good to run faster. Even though I killed myself on some inclines 🤷🏼‍♀️ Going to attempt another 5k this Saturday. 💪🏻 Getting back into running hasn’t been the easiest thing but I am so grateful that my body is still capable of doing what I love. ♥️
21 weeks postpartum. High waisted pants all the way up vs. rolled down. ✌🏻 I don’t think I’ve appreciated high waisted pants until I reached postpartum. Not because it “hides” anything, but because they are super comfy. 😂 They also help keep the extra baby love tight when working out. Which really helps during running. My body is soooo different than when I first started my fitness journey. This is definitely a journey for sure. This isn’t an Instagram vs. reality post because both of these versions are my reality. And I am totally okay with that. This is where I’m at with my journey. Is it hard? Heck yes. Is it making me stronger? Yup!! I’m still committed to showing my body some love at least 5 days a week because my body helped bring my sweet little girl into this world. I workout to be healthy, to get energy, to feel good, and yes, to get stronger. Proud of myself for having the confidence in either of these pictures. It’s not easy. Some days are a struggle but I’m up for this challenge. Giving myself grace every single day helps tremendously. ❤️ Be confident with where you are now. Your future self will appreciate the journey far more. ♥️
REPRISEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE #running #sportmotivation #21weekspostpartum #c ’est pas si mal que ça 😉
