There’s nothing more humbling than coming back to fitness after you’ve had a baby.
Having heard the fantastic news over the weekend that one of my clients is pregnant, inspired me to create this post.
After seeing the sheer shock, fear and excitement in my clients eyes, came doubt about what her body would look/be like afterwards. Having made a comeback from pregnancy twice myself (the top row of pictures was taken 6 months after my second child in 2016 and the bottom row October of 2019), as cliché as this is going to sound, I can honestly say as I am today, I am more stronger than I was before i was pregnant the first time.
I’ll be honest of course there were times, especially in the beginning of slowly getting my flow back where I thought,
“Where the fuck has my strength gone?”
“I used to be able to do this!”
And the all time classic, “My body is destroyed”. My advice to my client and any other female is not to let the negative thoughts about your body consume you. Yes your body is in a weaker state because pregnancy and giving birth, no matter how well it all went and how fantastic your birth plan was.
This doesn’t mean that everything can’t be turned around. Your body is amazing and is capable of doing amazing things, with a good plan tailored personally for you and advice from your healthcare professional you’re set.
Just remember on the days where you feel nothing is working and you want to give up. Great things take time. You’ve got this.
