Self Love Saturday – Pre Natal Massage

Today I treated myself to a prenatal massage and ohhhhhh my goodness, was that so necessary and felt so amazing!

When you have a baby coming, instinct probably tells you to save all the coin you can, but honestly, pregnancy is HARD on a body and a little TLC/pampering is absolutely worth it (and you deserve it!)

Did you get a prenatal massage when you were pregnant?

Feel Good Friday – Shine Your Brightest!

Do you… see yourself as a constant self-improvement project?

Do you… approach self-love with an all-or-nothing attitude?

Are you… hard on yourself — especially your body?

Is there something you are attempting to get rid of by sweeping it under the rug?

It’s important to be mindful of coming from a place of wanting to LEARN and GROW and shine BRIGHTER, not from a place of ‘there is something wrong with me and I need to fix it.’

There is nothing wrong with you – you are beautiful and perfect. And there is nothing wrong with improving upon that. We are here to be our best selves; nothing less!

And if you need help with that, I’m here, always. I’m always working on being my best self too, so we can do it all together 💕

Tuesday Oops – Forgot My Insulin at Home!

When you get all the way to work and realize you forgot your insulin and glucose tester at home, 35 minutes away… 🙄

And no, skipping a day of insulin and testing is not a viable option, as my levels would be high for a sustained amount of time and that puts both baby and I at risk.

So back home we came for them… and I was doing SO WELL not forgetting that crucial little component of my wellness!

Ohh, Tuesday…

 

 

Saturday Sweat – It’s OKAY to PAUSE!

It doesn’t matter how many times you hit PAUSE and catch your BREATH. What matters is you don’t STOP and catch your EXCUSES.

My capabilities are certainly more limited during pregnancy due to the nature of, you know, how hard a body works to grow a healthy human… but I’m still capable, and so I still show up.

I break more, I do fewer reps, my weights are lighter, I take two rest days instead of 1 now and I go at my own pace, but all of that is STILL better than using any excuse in the book to skip.

My baby/body/pregnancy are WHY I’m moving, not a free pass to skip every day. I’m no better than anyone, I just KNOW I’m worth the effort, limited or otherwise.

And pssst… you are too.

Foodie Friday – Prep Once, Eat All Week!

When a super sweet challenger sends you an amazing gift that would come in handy at any given time, but will especially handy once we have a baby and have considerably less flexible time! 💕

She had gotten this book herself and shared some posts with us, and I had mentioned how a concept like that would come in super handy once the baby is born and time is at more of a premium (but we will need to eat, and nourish ourselves!) and she very sweetly insisted that she let her gift this to me, from one mom to another.

I have the sweetest people in my life!

Thank you so much Kate, I just glanced through and I’m so excited to dig into this baby!
