MUMBOD – Vietnamese Edition

This is for all the new mama’s who are adjusting to their new bodies and learning to accept and love themselves whole heartedly. Mother’s can put huge expectations on themselves to bounce back after having a baby and be accepted into the “milfy mum club”.  Why do we expect to be perfect and until we are, we pick ourselves apart? It’s god damn exhausting!  I’m guilty of this myself but i’m here to say F IT! EMBRACE the new body because #curvesarecool and if you don’t own it, by the time you are 90 years old  you will regret not wearing that bikini before your butt sagged and your boobs fell below your waistline. 

We are off on our first family vacation to Vietnam and this means i will be living in my bikini. YES you heard correct – my bikini. This mama is going to embrace my curves, cellulite, leaking milk jugs, flab and all. I have a big bum, i have crazy cellulite, i have a mum-tum and i’m not at my end goal. I’m a work in progress and i’m proud of that.  My imperfections aren’t going anywhere and when you try to hide them it is very obvious and in my opinion it looks far worse! I would rather embrace my body and it’s flaws than hide it and come out looking like a 90 year old nana with a square arse. Can I get an amen?!????

My weight has not changed and i am still exercising as often as i can at least x3 a week. This varies from circuits, cardio and weights. I have a lot i would like to improve and weight to lose but while doing this mumbod journey iv’e realised more than anything my mental health is the most important tool there is. My nutrition has taken a turn and for multiple reasons (that i will discuss at a later date) we have made the change to a plant based diet. It will be interesting to see how this effects my overall health and weight-loss.

Everyday I am learning to care less about what others may think of me and know my own worth! Hence the photos baring cellulite, flab and all. It is hard work every single day but it’s a lot less draining than constantly being concerned about how others may feel about my choices or my body. If you don’t like it then look away, i truly don’t have time for anyone who isn’t going to bring positivity into my life.

So take a look at this mumbod and the imperfections and know that this is the body of a mother and an independent woman who is confident enough in her own body, cellulite and all to rock this bikini.

    I love your attitude Whitney! Wise beyond your young years. I shared this piece with my daughter (17yrs). It is so relevant for young women today, with such an obsessive perfectionist culture. Who you are & what you do are far more important than thigh gap & the perfectly shaped eye brow! Thank you for sharing your gorgeousness! Safe travels 👍👙🌼
