I think back to when I was trying to go it alone.
When I spent and hour (plus?) on my treadmill and hope the baby wouldn’t wake up!
When I thought SHAPE magazine was bible, but was so overwhelmed from all the articles and I had ripped out and collected for YEARS.
When I had an entire Pinterest board FULL of #abchallenges, #squatchallenges, or “stop drinking Diet Coke challenges.” And then on 5/1/16, I shook things up! I leaped out of my comfort zone and trusted someone else to show me what brought her INCREDIBLE success to clean up her nutrition and streamline her fitness into efficient, effective workouts.
No more binders.
No more Pinterest boards….(except for cute outfits and décor ideas…DUH.) No more wondering what to do TODAY. It’s SPELLED out for me!!! Sometimes, I just wanna be told EXACTLY what to do!!!!! No guess work. No wasting time. NO bullshit!!!! Let’s take the guess work OUT of nutrition & fitness. Link in bio or send me a DM to get this no-nonsense party started! . . .
Left: 39 weeks with baby number 1
Right: 39 weeks with baby number 2
Two totally different pregnancy experiences, two different genders, two(ish) years apart.
Interesting to see the differences, or lack thereof.
Everyone told me i was having a boy the first time around (lol), and before anyone knew it was a boy this time around they told me I was having a girl, because of the way I was carrying.
Pregnancy myths are hilarious. 'Dont reach up high for anything because you'll wrap the cord around the baby's neck', 'if you're carrying low that means it's a boy', 'you're always bigger with your second one'. I'm not going to waste any more time on them.
Rock your pregnancy, trust yourself, and don't listen to other peoples opinions, cos that's all they are, opinions - not facts.
Women are bombarded with opinions when they're pregnant and they're rarely helpful. They seep in and create beliefs that aren't always positive.
People have been telling me I'll have this baby early (which a week ago would have been scary due to moving house and not being prepared). How could they know? What satisfaction do they get from telling me what they couldn't possibly know? All it did was create nervousness - the last thing any pregnant woman needs. We've got enough on our minds already 🤗
So I wanted to put something out there today. The first picture is from 3 years ago, almost to the day. The second picture is two days ago. In the first picture I was a mess. Drinking and drugs were my life. I had just went through some really traumatic things and I didn’t care. But I thought I felt good, so why did it matter? I was dying; mentally, physically. But it didn’t matter.. up until a couple of months ago, it still didn’t. But now? I’m learning to love myself. To put myself first. To do things the right way. I do personal development, I put GOOD things into my body, and I have an AMAZING support team. Herbalife has been more than just good nutrition for me. It has given me a family full of people who always have open arms and are there to guide me and support me and who genuinely care about me. I thought losing all of my party friends would suck, but I’ve come into even better people who understand me. Some of them who’ve even been there. I’m blessed to have this chance to turn things around, and to in turn, help others do the same. My main point is that, when you feel alone, or like you can’t do it, or like you’ll be judged, come to me. Come talk to me. Let me guide you. I promise, there is so much more out there than what we think. I’ve been to what I thought was rock bottom. But guess what? The only way from rock bottom is to the top of the world. #thenandnow#healthy#happy#blessed#newopportunities#grateful#vision#thereishope#loseweightnow#askmehow#youarebeautiful#youarenotalone
