Unfortunately there is a lot of conflicting information about what food is best for a postpartum mom. On top of that is the pressure that we put on ourselves to “bounce back” & return to normal as quickly as possible. 🤦🏼‍♀️ In order to recover & replenish, mom must first allow herself TIME to honour her body & the miracle of creating life. During this time mom should be fed “healing soups; replenishing meals and snacks; and calming and lactation-boosting teas, all formulated to support the unique needs of the new mother” @motherbees The idea is to support & restore the body with warming foods & replenish nutrients lost through pregnancy & childbirth. On average it can take 1-2 years for a woman’s body to fully recover from pregnancy, making those first 40 days of restoration vital. I recently discovered The First Forty Days by @motherbees & I WISH I had it for my recovery. I strongly encourage you to check it out if you are expecting 💜 Photo credit 📸: @motherbees

Yesterday I had the chance to interview with @drmatttownsend about what wives need from their husbands. I put the link in my bio if you want to give a listen! (Just try to ignore my nervous “um’s”, “like’s”, and “kinda’s”😂🙈)

Day 3 of 80!! Today my sparkle-meter was low... call it a bad attitude because it was cardio day 😂😂

I’m happy in this picture because I’m done for the day 🤣

If it’s not dancing for cardio- I have to force myself through it.
*
Is there a kind of exercise that you have to make yourself #doitanyway??

Yesterday, we published a story by the amazing and brave @skyegrrl Mandy and mamas, you came running with open arms to embrace her and tell her she wasn’t alone and that she had a new mom friend in all of you. I mean, yesterday you all demonstrated the power of this community and sisterhood of @momswhometoo and the true power of empathy. Brooke and I are blown away by you all. When we first talked to Mandy and read her words, we cried, for her, with her, because we wanted to hug her and help and love on her and let her know how awesome and strong and “still cute” she really is. We are obsessed with all of you. If we rise by lifting others, you guys are on the tallest of mountains level. Let’s harness this power and keep spreading it. Thank you thank you for those words of support, understanding, empathy and empowerment you gave her and let’s give a major shout out to Mandy for having the balls to put it all out there. You all lifted her up and she lifted others up too because her story is all our stories. Ok rant over...back to getting bossed around by my 4-yr old dictation who is home with me on this unexpected snow day...😂😂😂

We can all take a note out our children's book... and also be aware of what we are projecting around them and teaching them ❤️Babies do not have to do anything to be perfect they are already perfect and they act as if they know it! They know that they are the center of the universe they're not afraid to ask for what they want and they freely Express their emotions without fear or doubt.
When they are angry they are angry, when they're happy they're happy
Once we are older we begin to live in judgment, in fear and doubt in lack of perfection and begin to learn to dislike things about ourselves, our bodies etc.

Meanwhile babies love every part of their bodies even their own poo 😂😂😂 They have incredible courage, no guilt and no shame

We were once all like that until you begin to listen to the opinions, adults around us
That are fearful and began to doubt our own magnificence #newmom #5monthsold #babygirl #babymagic #ppd #postpartumjourney #postpartumdepression

This is a great reminder from @themightysite that it’s okay to not be okay. Remember - you’re only human! #selfcompassion #mindfulness #inspirationalquotes

When you're a Type A/OCD kind of person who is also emotional by nature (and for the last 3+ years of being pregnant/breastfeeding, emotional via hormonal overload), who also struggles with anxiety, who preaches and teaches self-love and confidence, but is still working on her own -- it can be tough to live inside my own head. 😏😐 Yesterday was one of those days where I would have benefited from a pair of those post-lasik sunglasses that cover your entire face and block out everything you could ever try to see, and a pair of heavy-duty earplugs. 🙈🙉 You may think this is because my kids were cranky, or beyond a handful. Nope. (Although, I about lost it when my husband started playing Carly's Alana of Avalor guitar 🙄 while Moana was blasting in the background for the 576th time while the oven timer was going off while my Mom was telling me about her new counters - hellllooo brain explosion). 🤯🤯 But, no. It was EVERY. SINGLE. THING. ELSE.
A day filled with pressure and panic and unexpected challenges. A day where no amount of confidence or "blinders" could stop the comparison game. A day where with seemingly every turn, I was smacked with someone or something making me feel like I wasn't good enough, couldn't compare, and was doing everything wrong.
I went to bed feeling defeated, mentally exhausted, and questioning my self-worth. 👎🏼🤢 How grateful I am to have woken up with the frame of mind to know better than to let that nonsense continue. And a tribe of virtual (and real life, duh) people who lift one another up - their own leader included. 🙌🏼❤️ I don't share this to be negative. I share this because it IS normal to have those moments. It IS okay to have everything imaginable going for you in life and still have craptastic days. 🤷🏼‍♀️ It doesn't make me ungrateful, or dramatic. It makes me human. And I sprinkle these moments of honesty and vulnerability in because I don’t want MY highlight reel to ever make you feel like I did yesterday.
Empowerment comes from within, and those around you. Surround yourself with positivity, and if someone tries to dull your shine- put your blinders on, snuggle your baby, and keep doing YOU. ✌🏼😎❤️
