Since my last mumbod update i have come to realise that it is going to be a long process getting to the end goal that i want to be at.
A couple of week’s into my mum bod mission we went to Christchurch for longer than expected due to family circumstances and then came home for a fleeting visit and flew there and back again. This meant i was out of routine and although there shouldn’t be any excuses life really did get in the way.
This i realise is the reality of life. Although i know i will not be at the stage/body i had planned for i am still working towards the overall goal (self love) every single day and working out and eating well definitely helps with that!
My main goal is not to reach a certain number on the scales or to look like a bond girl in a bikini (although i’m sure that wouldn’t be bad ha) but to FEEL 100% confident in my own body, stretch marks, joey pouch, leaking boobs and all! I’m really focusing on my confidence in myself, my body and owning that every single day!
There truly is nothing sexier in my opinion than a kick arse woman owning her curves, her imperfections because she knows she is a Queen! THAT is my goal, that is what i am striving for. This will be something i need to work on every single day but every day it get’s easier. I truly look up to the women who don’t compare themselves to anyone else but themselves and truly know in their own core how f***ing fabulous they are. When you meet someone like this they ooze appeal it’s like an aura.
I’ve been skinny, i’ve been muscular, i’ve been pregnant. My body has been through a rollercoaster over the past few years and it deserves a whole lot of self love! I can look back on old photos and think about how great i looked then, when in reality at that time i still wasn’t totally happy with the way i looked. Self love and acceptance is so important. Especially as a new Mum i want my children to see how confident i am in myself. I want Mason to love every cell of his body and mama is going to need to lead by example.
In order to get to this goal i still need to work on my health, fitness and body because mentally this truly helps with my anxiety and confidence. I may not look any different but if i have done squats the day before, the next day i swear i feel like i’m rocking a kick arse Kardashian bootay.
My current weekly routine is:
x1 or 2 boxing/circuit workout at Industrial Fitness Fight Club in Queenstown
x2 local gym sessions consisting of 30 min cardio and weights or a group class like Body Pump or Spin
Dairy is something that hasn’t agreed with me for a very long time but cheese is my second love (after wine ha) just recently i made the move and cut dairy out of my diet due to the effects it has on my eczema. I will let you know how this goes and how/if it effects the weight loss. Other than that no significant food changes i’m still breastfeeding so EATING is key to maintaining my milk supply and not feeling faint if i worked out hard.
Conclusion. If you need to find me in three week’s time i will be laying poolside cocktail in hand, in my high thigh, one-piece swimsuit and owning my mumbod, joey pouch and juganoughts!
