This past week, we celebrated Baby O’s 5 month birthday. Every month is a milestone in our house and we still wish Fit Boy a happy month birthday even though he’s nearly 2 and a half now. For some reason, monthly celebrations are how we roll (or example, we just celebrated 63 months of marriage…yep…we geek out like that!).
Last week, I talked about my journey and my body and how empowered I feel because I’m loving myself from the inside out and not based on the outside in. Thank you to everyone who tweeted, commented, emailed about how that post touched them. I’m glad it resonated with you and I hope that it’s a feeling that is contagious because I hope that everyone out there feels that way about themselves regardless of where they are in life.
Normally, you’d be seeing some updated progress pics this week but I’ve decided to take a bit of a break from the picture posing. I’m doing this for a few reasons: Not much has changed as far as what I look like. I’m still running and swimming as often as I’m able to get away but I haven’t gotten to a point where I’m incorporating much strength training. I’ve actually been a bit lazy about doing my core work and as a result, my diastisis recti is starting to increase again. I will be focusing on that a lot in the coming weeks because I need my strong core and not just because I want a flat tummy but because it’s important in my overall health.
I will still post pictures but I’ve decided to only post at 6, 9 and 12 months postpartum now. I’ll still post about my progress and how things are going but there will probably be less visuals of me in a bikini top and yoga pants. I’m sure you’ll survive
