Struggling with the mum bod

I’m going to get so raw and so deep with you all and if that’s not your thing I’m sorry but I need to get it off my chest.

Before I had Lorenzo I was at a weight I was happy with, wasn’t too skinny and definitely not to big I was at a happy size 14. And that had been after so much hard work at gym, boot camps and waking at 5am every morning to go for a walk. Even when I lived out of home my roommate and I definitely motivated each other and we ate healthy and would workout after work most nights.

Then I fell pregnant… and although I loved being pregnant I regret so much! And now I’m a year after giving birth and I can’t seem to lose any weight and instead I’m putting weight on. A lot of it has to do with unhealthy habits when it comes to my food. And I just don’t know how to shake it off!

I’ve joined gym but again the motivation is very much non existent! And the healthy eating happens every so often but at least twice a week you will find me eating unhealthy.

I guess you could say pregnancy has effected my body and for the first year I wasn’t so hard on myself about this due to the fact I had a baby at home and was trying to adjust to the new lifestyle of lack of sleep and just getting dressed everyday. But now my son is 15 months old and I do have time to workout and yet my motivation is lacking!?

Again I’m sorry for such a personal blog but I guess this is the dark side of child birth no women tells you, also when society has this picture out there that you just bounce back after childbirth is very much false and annoying as a real women who already had curves before pregnancy to magically get her ass into gear and workout and be skinny again!?

My goal for the month of May is to be consistent with working out and putting my health first.

If any other mothers can relate i would love to here your stories

Mummy shark 😘
