- “You’ll bounce back so fast.” 🤰🏽
Although this is meant to be comforting and said with good intentions, it’s been something that I dislike hearing. After I give birth to our baby boy, I hope our moments together are filled with love, laughing, crying, and joy. .
I hope my mind is focused on soaking in all of the sweet moments of our new, growing family instead of trying to get my body to not look like I ever created my son in it. My body will never be the same and I’m completely okay with that. My body a year ago wasn’t creating life and I hope I’m able to focus on the changes my body has gone through with love, patience, and happiness at what it has been able to do. .
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. I’m so happy I’ll be able to be perfectly mom-sized, whatever that may mean for me. 💙
- I’m in awe of how incredible Dinosaur National Monument has been and I’ve only seen a small fraction of it. These buttes, the rivers, the snow covered mountain, everything has been painfully inspiring. I feel that this adventure has only just begun and I am so excited, I could dance the days away. The curves on my body lovingly embrace and mimic the bends of the river and twists of the canyons. Two forces of nature imitating one another and I couldn’t be radiant.

- Body positivity. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
This is an everyday lesson we MUST teach ourselves to practice & NOT to allow others to take it from us. YOU ARE FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY YOU ARE.
Just yesterday I was told that someone made a comment that was meant negatively about my body “shape”. That the current shape, “width”, of my lower body is the reason girls shouldn’t powerlift. 🤦🏻♀️🤣 I definitely got a chuckle considering I’ve never powerlifted unless you consider doing the common compound movements as such lol. Regardless, this could have easily offended me as I am sure it would have some people. However, I am proud of my thickness! Powerlifting, yoga, dance, you name it...there is not just ONE certain body type for any of it. We were not created to fit in anyone’s category or label. I have friends that powerlift & I can say they are some of the strongest & most encouraging women I know. Different body types but wonderful examples of STRONG women! (Shout out @lindsayloves2lift @yamalo17) So if anything I’m FLATTERED to be compared to such. Whether you are 100lbs or 300lbs, LOVE yourself & your journey. It’s for you not for anyone else.
My body is a reflection of ✖️9 months of pregnancy ✖️12 hours of labor
✖️13 years of being a momma to an amazing boy
✖️ YEARS of dance & gymnastics ✖️ YEARS of celebrating & creating memories with family & friends
✖️ YEARS of continuing to find balance in training
✖️ Teaching myself how to do yoga when I was unable to workout in the gym ✖️Indulging in delicious foods & drinks without punishing myself for doing so
I have stretch marks, cellulite & plenty of perfect imperfections.
God created my body the way he wanted it to be not based off of someone else’s approval or opinion.
My weight has yo-yo’d from my smallest at 123 to my heaviest at 183. The number on the scale does not determine my worth & I will continue to choose not to allow it. Sitting at 171.8 to be exact, as of this morning, I decided today would be the perfect day to push body positivity...I am beautiful the way I am. I can wear whatever I want to wear as long as I do it with confidence with my head held high. (Cont in comments)
