Fitmom Thoughts

Today is the last day to get a $20 discount for my Fantasy Fitness Challenge group starting October 6th.  Leave your email in a comment below if you're interested in participating or hearing more about it.

It occurred to me recently that it wasn't very long ago I started to just accept the fact that what everyone had told me about having a baby and getting my body back was true.  I had so many people tell me I would never be able to get my body back or my body would never be the same. 

I remember looking in the mirror a few months ago thinking, "Okay.  I'm okay with this.  I have a beautiful baby that means the entire world to me and I don't mind that things won't be the same."

Then I started with Beachbody and drinking Shakeology every day and that plateau I had hit is now just a memory.  In fact, you can get that body back in a new and improved way - I mean, it nurtured and birthed a child - that's amazing in and of itself!

I still would be okay, but I'm really glad I don't have to be.  I'm really glad that with a little hard work and determination, I can be an example of fitness and health for my family.

Scheduling workouts is hard.  Thank goodness my son loves to run in the stroller with me.  I'm not quite sure it would be as do-able if he didn't.

As women we need to lift each other UP.  Seriously, since starting on this Beachbody journey I have really noticed the amount of women that judge, degrade, or discourage healthy lifestyles.  Aren't we all in this together?  

I have to agree with Marion and assume that some people are disguising envy or even convicted by the posts I'm sharing?



  1. I just found your blog, and wow! What a post to start off with. I felt this was super refreshing to hear both from a fitness perspective, but also from a gender equality perspective. We should be lifting each other up! I'm 6 months pregnant at the moment and already a bit anxious about the return to pre-baby body, but I felt really empowered reading this post. Thank you for that :-)


Feel free to leave me some love. It makes my heart smile.
