IT CHANGES LIVES. 💕
This week @usweekly highlighted @dudewithsign negative message... and while some may not understand the magnitude of it... for this momma... it can’t even be put into words.
Almost four years ago, I sat with my little three month old baby girl starting at me as I nursed her to sleep... and while it was supposed to be the most magical time as a new momma... I felt empty, terrified, and completely lost in who I was.
A lot of life had changed, in a matter of seconds is what it felt like, and I just remembered feeling like such a failure because THIS part of life wasn’t supposed to feel like this... I was trying to take care of everyone and everything and what I wasn’t doing... was taking care of ME.
The habit of putting myself last and not taking care of myself eventually adds up... and it takes its toll on you in so many more ways than you could think... and in turn effects the people around you.
I remember praying so hard for an answer, a solution, an outlet, to find the light in a chapter that was filled with such darkened... And it was then I came across another momma... sharing a selfie of her home workout with her baby boy just a few years older than my babe... she had such LIGHT, so much SPARKLE, and I knew whatever she had... is what my heart needed.
It all changed from there. EVERY part of my life.
Not only did I find physical results I craved from professional workouts at home, but I found mental strength, confidence, a COMMUNITY filled with women I’ve become so close with and just get to do life with, both the good and the bad.
My love for it turned into a passion filled business that allowed me to financially contribute along side my hubby. It allowed be to help so many other women to find their sparkle like I continue to do, no matter what the season.
It’s flowed into my marriage, allowed me to give my best self to my littles, and it’s been the constant and accountability during some of the hardest and challenging chapters.
Through deployment, pregnancies, postpartum, and life, I’ll continue to share my home workouts... Because that one sweaty selfie, CHANGED MY LIFE... and in turn changed these little girls lives.💕 - 8 minutes ago
