Real Talk: Imperfect Beauty

August 23, 2014 2 min read

We see transformations everyday. Great ones, in fact! Huge weight loss successes. But, what about the mommies who are left feeling blue or bummed about their postpartum bodies? There are so many ladies out there who are ashamed of their postpartum bodies-whether it be their stretch marks or their cellulite (I've got both) or something completely different. Give yourself a break-your body just built and created the most precious thing on the face of the Earth!   2011_nissan_gt_r_instrumentcluster     During my pregnancy, I hit the gym 5 days a week for an hour. It did help greatly, though I'm still not perfect nor do I strive to be. My postpartum body isn't perfect either. It's a constant work in progress. My body has done it's job and now I'm doing my job to treat it with the gratitude it deserves after it carried my beautiful son for 40 weeks and 1 day. Yup, I've got stretch marks, though they may not be on my tummy or "out there." Yup, I've got cellulite on my thighs that comes and goes depending on my hormones (Breastfeeding) and how I eat. But, it's okay.  2011_nissan_gt_r_instrumentcluster To be honest, even I sometimes get insecure out in public wearing a bikini. But, I try not to fret about it. Cause, at the end of the day, my body created the tiniest and coolest little human being ever. And I can't wait to do it all over again in a heartbeat.  Don't get caught up in how other women may look. Because even some of the fittest women out there have their flaws, too-they just don't show them. And you know that a magazine will not go one photo shoot without the handy dandy use of Photoshop! At 6 months postpartum, I am slowly getting back to where I was. It is seriously a long journey and keeping fit during my entire pregnancy truly helped afterwards!   2013-nissan-gt-r-premium_100383855_l     People like to say that I'm one of the "lucky ones" that were "blessed with good genetics." Perhaps so. But I can tell you one thing-luck and good genetics won't get you very far if you are constantly eating crap and drinking crap and sitting on the couch 24/7 watching Netflix. Been there, done that. It doesn't work. You have got to work your ass off. No excuses. Since becoming a mommy, I have honestly only been able to work out maybe 2-3 times per week-if I am lucky. I have  learned, though, that the secret is to improvise. My favorite thing to do when my son is awake is to do a mommy & baby workout.     17154 Most of all, strive to be healthy-inside & out. Have a positive relationship with your body. Remember that not every woman looks the same. I challenge you all to go put your bikini or swimsuit on right now. Look at yourself. Learn to love yourself, right here and right now. You are not your body. I repeat, YOU ARE NOT YOUR BODY.  There's nothing wrong with wanting improvement. But make sure that you are okay with your flaws. Because when you are, what people make think or say no longer matters.   2011_nissan_gt_r_instrumentcluster
