Here I am. Real life. No filter. Adult diaper. 2 days post C-section. Swollen. Hurting. Sleep deprived.โฃ
โฃ
Look, we all go through stages of life that call for different and more important things than how our bodies look.โฃ

My life right now isnโ€™t all in nutrition and exercise like it once was.โฃ
โฃ
Will I get back to killing it in the gym and nailing my macros?โฃ
โฃ
Absolutely.โฃ
โฃ
Is that my focus right now? โฃ
โฃ
No.โฃ
โฃ
Fitness and nutrition is a PART of my life. Itโ€™s not my entire life. โฃ
โฃ
When taking care of your body, you donโ€™t have to love what you see. This version of my body is brand new to me.โฃ
โฃ
Iโ€™ve never carried a child before. This is my first postpartum journey. โฃ
โฃ
Itโ€™s okay that I am not in love with the way I look.โฃ
โฃ
I am NOT defined by how I look.โฃ
โฃ
Itโ€™s okay that I gained weight. More weight than I wanted.โฃ
โฃ
I used to fail to realize that Iโ€™m not going to be my leanest 365 days a year.โฃ
โฃ
We go through events and seasons in life that require different versions of ourselves.โฃ
โฃ
This version of me is exactly where I need to be right now.โฃ
โฃ
No guilt, no beating myself up, no tearing myself down with negative self talk.โฃ
โฃ
My body created a life.โฃ
โฃ
How could we ever tear ourselves down when our bodies do so much for us?โฃ
โฃ
Itโ€™s okay to not love your body for how it looks. Thatโ€™s not the goal.โฃ
โฃ
But I will always love my body for what it does for me daily.โฃ
โฃ
And I canโ€™t wait for this new journey and new experience.โฃ
โฃ
The time will come soon when I am back at it, but for now, I love where I am โ™ฅ๏ธโฃ

Whatever journey you are on right now, you are not alone. ๐˜ž๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜จ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ. ๐Ÿ’•
