"Two similar pictures on the same day, just slightly different angles on my tummy (or as I like to call it my leftovers😝- as in from my babies, not food..... or mabie both)
Everything isn’t always what it seems on instagram. Photoshop is everywhere, skin smoothing, butt lifting, people editing themselves in every dam photo, I even saw a sponsored add the other day for an app where you can add a six pack to your abs.... nothing is truely what is seems anymore, and it’s making for a very scary future of body conscious women and teenage girls.
I get body conscious all the time, I’m not going to lie about it, as do most of us. But part of my journey is accepting myself for who I am and being a role model for not only my daughter but for other women out there who may be struggling with body image no matter how big or small it may seem. I want everyone to join the club of girls and women rocking what they have, loving their bodies, and being confident in the skin your in. This doesn’t mean I’m going to throw in the towel with exercise and my healthy food and start saying “fuck it” and indulge on burgers, pizza and chocolate everyday. I’m still going to maintain eating healthy and exercise because it makes me feel good on the inside, it gives me the energy I need to live a forfilling life, it releases endorphins the”feel good” hormone into our body, and hey if a few extra kgs come off then I’ll welcome it of course but don’t let your body stop you from doing the things you love, like hitting up the beach, or wearing a pretty dress. Life is too short to be unhappy with yourself, so turn that mindset around 🙌🏼⭐️ #womensupportingwomen#positivemindset#positivebodyimage"

We all need some good news right now. This may seem minor to some but it's actually kind of a big deal. Just @gap ads normalizing the beauty of an African American mama breastfeeding her babe. 😍 thanks @whynothome for posting it! ♥️ Have a beautiful, love filled weekend.
Sometimes all you need is reassurance that everything is going to be OK. Being a Mumma is difficult, even on the good days. And on the bad, it really can be hard to hold your shit together.
Mumma - You've got this!
Let the tears run down your face. Jump in the shower if Bub will let you. Get yourself a cold drink. Put your feet up. Do whatever you need to do to centre yourself.
Now take a deep breath.
Whether Bub is 1 day, 1 month or 1 year old ~ despite all that you think you've done wrong ~ they've survived. And so have you!
Be proud Mumma. You're doing a great job.

These baked donut holes were amazing! 🍩🍩 Made them the other day for my refeed day when I was able to eat some fun sugary carbs 😁
The kiddos chowed down and asked for more! And if you’re on a gluten free diet, you can eat these! 🙌🏻 Let me know if you’d like the recipe!
Ok not just tutu but now officially in love with lace and florals. Love this La Sienna lace dress 😍 #newmum day65 @lasiennacouture
Leg day moves may be simple, but they’re so HARD! That post-workout accomplished feeling though is so worth it! Scroll through the photos and give some of these moves a try!
1) Standard Squat (15)
2) Curtsy Lunge (15 per side)
3) Outer Forward Lunge (15 per side) *keep your back leg straight and don’t step too far forward
4) Single Leg Balance (15) *hinge forward then return to standing
5) Deadlift (15) *last 2 photos. Hinge at the hips with hands no lower than your shins. Pull back up and squeeze that booty!

Early morning chats on our first weekend away as a fam of four, before Daddy gets wild for the #pantzwood wedding! 🥂
One of the things that allow people to be successful in no matter what they pursue, is self discipline ❤️ .
TBH, I didn’t want to workout today. I’ve become a “before noon” workout person and so when it gets out on hold until evening I lose my mo-jo. But there’s a little fit-angel on my shoulder saying you COMMITTED to 80 days of fitness with this program and so, by my own standards, I’m going to get it done even when the mood isn’t in its favor. 🤗 .
But, when you’re DISCIPLINED in one area of life, it will spill over into other areas. Your work, your marriage, motherhood, friendships, nutrition. Doing the things that are EASY doesn’t take discipline. It’s doing he things that CHALLENGE you (or that just suck) that requires discipline and generates CHANGE 💛 When you start to see the change, the disciplines become more natural 😘
Some tips for self-care include: Live Healthy, eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, exercise regularly, and avoid drugs and alcohol. Manage stress and practice good hygiene. Look after yourself xx #healthylifestyle
Waking up with the goats this morning. 🐐
Decided to take a run to Eau Claire and do a little shopping. So fun to hang out with these ladies today 😍 #lovemyfridays#familytime
Sometimes I feel like I’m actively shoplifting a Medicine Ball... oh wait... that’s everyday moving forward now 🙈
Those weekend feels! We're both a little addicted to ice cream at the moment 🤔 A moment on the lips 🍦🍧🍨
When you have a baby there is usually a beautiful and very generous outpouring of love and celebration (and gifts for the baby!) Sometimes there’s flowers and chocolates too. ⠀
When I had my second baby, the beautiful Mums from my Mothers Group organised a little gift, and included was a Massage Voucher for me! I think I actually cried. I just never expected something just for me and I was so happy and thankful. I felt acknowledged and appreciated for all I had just been through. ⠀
So, if you know a Mum who has recently had a baby, send her a little something JUST FOR HER! ⠀
Our New Mum Bundle includes;⠀
1 x ‘You’re Amazeballs’ Nail polish from @sayitwithpolish ⠀
1 x Bath teabag from @maelainebathteabags⠀ ⠀
1 x Candle from @woolamaiwicks ⠀⠀
1 x Bottle of Moët (200ml) ⠀
The perfect way to celebrate the arrival of a beautiful new baby, all in the comfort of your own home by having a soak in the bath with a candle and a glass of Champagne!
Available for purchase from the 28th February! ⠀
