Did you know 1 in 2 female athletes has urinary incontinence? - There are several main things to look out 🧐for when working out during pregnancy🤰🏼 and postpartum (1. Peeing, 2. Prolapse, 3. Pain, 4. Doming/bulging): check out the following two posts! - If you pee/leak, also called urinary incontinence, that is a sign that your body cannot tolerate that movement due to the forces/load/pressures placed on it. Urinary incontinence is common, but is not normal. It is also something that you do not need to live with, there are plenty of women health therapists who can help with this symptom. - If you are working out and you notice that you leak, there are a few things you can do to reduce the load on your core as you work on healing. (Ideally, you will be doing some form of rehab if this is a symptom you experience.) - You can: 💃🏼 1. MODIFY the movement (jumping squats to air squats) 2. REDUCE the reps (50 jump ropes reps to 25 jump ropes reps) 3. SUBSITUTE for a different movement (sub jump rope for the row machine to keep the cardio component) - Another symptom that you may need to modify your movements for would be prolapse, which is when the muscles and tissues supporting the pelvic organs (the uterus, bladder, or rectum) become weak or loose. This allows one or more of the pelvic organs to drop or press into or out of the vagina. Prolapse is best diagnosed by a pelvic floor PT, but you may notice you have this by noticing heaviness or bulging feeling near your vagina. (There are other symptoms as well). - #chiropractic #prenatalchiropractic #pregnancycare #prenatalfitness #prenatalworkout #postpartumfitness #postpartumworkout #postpartumrehab #pelvichealth #takecareofyourself #newmom #momtips #fitmama #strongmama #louisvilleco #louisvillecolorado #lafayetteco #lafayettecolorado #chiropractor #postpartumbody #postpartumjourney #postpartumhealth

The completion of RITES OF PASSAGES, is essential not only for the individual, the initiate— but also for the community. . The postpartum period is meant to be the completion to the ‘rite of passage’ of the childbearing continuum. . We need to re-member how to bring our RITES into completion as humankind, so that Mothers may FEEL exalted.... and so that families and communities may thrive. . Stay tuned for an announcement on a FREE online class tending to this very subject. . #innatetraditions #innatepostpartumcare #postpartum #postpartumhealth #maternalhealth #maternalmentalhealth #familyculture #familywellness

I want to get real with y’all today! I’ve felt off with my health and the way I have felt for awhile now! I’ve suffered through out the years, especially after having babies, with stress, weight gain, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and hair growth on my face. These are just a few symptoms I’ve suffered from! I’ve been to the drs and had treatment with therapy and medication for PPD but feel like I was sort of brushed off with real concerns for other parts of my health journey at times. Not sure why we can’t feel more confident when going to the drs? Speaking up about our health is so extremely important and also really understanding what’s happening within our bodies! * * * I’m taking charge of my health with @everly_well Women’s Health Test and taking a look at my hormones from home! I’m using this as a tool to stay confident and knowledgeable about my health. I’m set up to go to my annual check up and will be talking about these concerns with my dr. but this will definitely give me the boost of confidence that I need. I’ll be writing a blog post once I have my results in about the product and my actual test results.Have you been curious about symptoms you have been having and want to test as well? I have a 15% off discount code just for you! Use the code HOMEWITHHALEY to save on your Women’s Health Kit! I wanted to share this with you to say you are not alone in this journey! Watch my IG stories I’ve posted so you can see how I take the test and follow along in mine!🙌🏻 * * * h a s h t a g s #womenshealth #kentuckyblogger #heathandwellness #louisvilleblogger #health #takecharge #hormones #womenshormones #testkit #everlywell #hormonalhealth #postpartum #motheroffive #postpartumhealth #loveyourself #mentalhealth #wellness #bodyimage #empoweringwomen #fallhealth #healthylifestyle #blogger #confidence #proactive #proactivehealth #livingyourbestlife #creatinghealth #momlife #womenlivingwell

Naptime is for coffee, quiet time, and crossing things off! Slipped going down the stairs Sunday and injured my arm, taking a few days away from working out to let it heal and see the doctor. Hopefully back to it soon!

What gets you geeked up to workout?? Even if it’s that EXTRA BOOST that you sometimes need to push yourself to a new place mentally & physically?? Coming from the girl who “doesn’t need motivated to workout”....except when I actually did after having both of my daughters, here is what I will say to THAT GIRL... . Fitness is the foundation of youth mama!!! You have to find what you love about working out and then get your butt up and do it!!! Love to dance, Lift Weights, Stretch or follow choreography?? Let your heart lead you in fitness and results will follow. . Create a NEW playlist and jam it out getting ready in the morning! Getting dressed, taking the kids to school, slamming a pre workout drink- tell yourself I’m getting pumped up and I’m working out as soon as I have 5 minutes! Don’t wait to be motivated to workout. Motivate yourself first thing. . New shoes, New leggings!!! When you look good you feel good! Period! So true!!!!! Plus if your feet hurt after a workout it’s bc you’ve worn them too long or they weren’t the best show to begin with. And leggings??? For days!!! #leggingsoftheday join me! . Surround yourself with people who love fitness and live the lifestyle you wish to! They aren’t dragging you down, they are lifting you up! They don’t need to be motivated bc they’ve already found their best self inside fitness!!! Dude that’s what it’s about ⭐️⭐️ and if you don’t have that crew supporting you or the workouts that are making your day or the results that make you want to take a selfie—-then drop it below 🙋🏼 to join my #deproveitcrew starting Monday Oct 22!!! New Workout Launching!! 3 weeks ME and YOU!!! Let me help you fall in love with fitness. ❤️❤️ . Want my workout music playlist? Drop it below. Let’s do this!!!

Baby girl made it 7.5 months without getting sick. Poor girl is being such a good sport. Still laughing and smiling through the runny eyes and nose. Life has ups and downs, it doesn’t always go as planned. I could have been in a super bad mood this morning after getting very little sleep. But I wasn’t. I was thankful that my family opened their eyes this morning and was able to tell them I love them one more time. I could have been mad that I only got a 19 minute workout in, but I wasn’t because those were 19 more minutes that I didn’t have towards my goals last night. Perspective is key in every situation. Life can be as difficult, comical, amazing, or a never ending drama fest. It all depends on you and how YOU choose to react to situations! I challenge you to look for the good in every situation every day for the remainder of the year. Watch how drastically your life changes! 😁🙌🏼❤️ • • • #fueledbyfaith #fueledbyfaithfitness

These guys are pretty yummy and give me a little veggie action. I hate eating processed food and feel guilty when I do but I honestly don’t have time or energy to make stuff on my own like this right now. But these are yummy and somewhat healthy-ish. They are 3pp each. I had 2 for breakfast. Puts me at 10pp for my breakfast today. Trying to get better and post throughout the day! #weightwatchers #wwpointsplus #pointsplus #babybelly #motivation #nursingmama #nursingmom #healthymama #wwpostpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumweightloss #postpartumhealth #weightlossjourney

I had a very hard time adjusting to the new momma life. I knew my whole life that all I wanted to be was a mom & I couldn't wait for baby to be here. But, after that new excitement wore off & the crazy hormones kicked in. I found myself scared to death of being a mother. - I had dreams and thoughts of horrible vivid images of problems that would arise in our lives and how everything was going to go wrong. Because I KNEW it was going to. Postpartum anxiety is REAL!😥 - I was scared of everything and couldnt keep going on the way I was. I knew I needed an escape from the life I was living. - So I turned to the thing that has helped get me through everything else in my life-- exercise. For 30 (or so) minutes a day I was able to take my life back 1 day at a time. It was a very slow process at the beginning. But, it was working. - My horrible thoughts and images slowly started to fade until they were basically non-existant. I was able to channel my stress and anxiety through my workouts and was finally able to take back my life! --- Our team is putting together a FREE 3-day group just in time for our new program to launch.🙌 Get a sneak peek into the workouts that truly saved me from myself. In this group you will get access to: 🍁Workouts 🍁Meal plans 🍁Prizes&giveaways 🍁Accountability ALL FOR FREE for 3 days!!! You never know when something could change your life forever. What if this is that moment?! Comment with your favorite emoji & I will get you access to that group! ⬇️⬇️

If you haven’t tried chick fil-a you are truly missing out!!!

Today Adam and I are celebrating 9 months of love, laughter, tears and joy with our baby boy Wyatt Santiago. 😭😭😭 How did that go soooo fast!? ⁣ ⁣ This also means that I should probably be posting the traditional “9 months in vs 9 months out” photo. Instead, here is a picture of me 1 week postpartum. You see, its the beginning, the starting point of a new chapter.⁣ ⁣ - It reminds me how in those first few days and weeks postpartum you really are stripped down to your most fragile and vulnerable state - so many hormones and emotions, trying to figure out how to care for this new life and everything that goes with it: sleeping(or lack of), breastfeeding, formula, etc. ⁣ - It reminds me of how much has changed in the last 9 months(physically, mentally, emotionally) and how much I’ve grown/adapted. ⁣ - It reminds me that I am unique and this is my journey. I will not compare it to someone else’s as every person and body are different and that is OKAY.⁣ ⁣ Real Talk —> I’m not going to lie to you and say that I don’t miss my pre pregnancy body sometimes(and it’s also OK to admit this!) but I’ll also say that I LOVE the body I’m in now, and the journey I am on as a mama.⁣ ⁣ There is so much pressure on mamas to “get your body back”(whatever that means) but rather than focusing on if I am at my pre pregnancy weight(I couldn’t tell you if I was as I only see my weight when I go to the dr.), I choose to focus on the self care/love I have put into this body over the last 9 months and all the ways this body has loved me in the past 2 years from pregnancy to now. ⁣ ⁣ Mamas - Our bodies love and serve us every day! Through pregnancy, labor, delivery, sleepless nights and too much coffee to non stop chasing of your little who just learned to crawl and feels the need to climb EVERYTHING. 😳⁣ ⁣ Isn’t it about time we start loving it back? ❤️ ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #selflove #selfcare #loveyourbody #wellmama #modernmom #9monthpostpartum #momlife #postpartum #pregnancy #postpartumhealth #wellness #health #fitpregnancy #motherhood #postpartumjourney #momstrong #fitmom

I started my own postpartum fitness journey with my new accountability group yesterday. It’s been a long time since I really participated as a challenger with my own weight loss goals, so I was really excited for this group! I have about 10 lbs of baby weight left to drop to be back where I was pre-pregnancy. I’m not in a rush, but I am ready to feel strong again. I’ve missed my workouts! • I never thought I would get to the point that I truly loved working out, but endorphins are pretty amazing. I haven’t struggled with postpartum depression since Evelyn’s birth, but I have had a few hard days. It’s been raining a ton here, and the mosquitos have been awful, so I’ve barely gotten out of the house in the past 4 weeks. I’m definitely ready to feel like myself, get out of the house more, and I know that exercise will energize me! Stay tuned for updates in my stories! • • • • • #transformationtuesday #transformyourlife #whynotyou #eatwellbewell #fuelyourbody #moveyourbody #accountability #makeachange #changeyourmindset #changeyourlife #nevergiveup #stayhopeful #hopefulfitness #hopeinhim #madetocrave #risingstrong #postpartumweightloss #postpartumfitness #postpartumfitnessjourney #postpartumbody #postpartumbelly #bodyafterbaby #afterbabybody #postpartumhealth #postpartumyoga #postpartumworkout

I’ve been trying out a different fitness program the last few days and have been loving it. My virtual trainer dropped some pretty powerful words this morning. “Great things happen when your mind tells you to give up but you keep going anyway.” . Have you ever gone through something that you thought “I can’t do this” but surprised yourself and made it through?? I have been there so many times and sometimes I have even given up, which never feels good. For me fitness has given me a place where I can prove to myself that I CAN DO HARD THINGS! It has become my sanity saver and a place that I can find peace and strength regardless of what’s going on in my life. Which is part of what I love about this program. . This program focuses on transforming your body from the inside out, starting at the very core: your MIND! It is based on learning to love yourself and proving what you are capable of! And If you can train your mind, then you can train your body to do anything! I’m so excited for you to build up your endurance so you can continue to transform your mind, body, spirt and feel your best all the way through this holiday season! . This is that time of year when so may people throw in the towel and decide to wait until the new year to work on their goals. We stop making time for ourselves because... we get busy with the holidays, work is stressful, there will be lots of travel and it’s HARD! Often it leads to the feeling of being stressed, overwhelmed and far from your best self. RIGHT NOW is when we need to focus on our mental and physical strength the most! . I can’t wait to start this program and come out 4 weeks later a completely transformed, stronger, more confident, REMODELED version of myself! It’s time to rise UP! NOW, not in January! Through these busy holiday months when so many women forget to fill their cups and put their health on the back burner! . So Are you ready to feel your best this year during the holidays? It’s time to prove it girl! Wanna do it with me? We start October 22nd! Drop your favorite emoji below or click the link in my bio and I’ll send you all the info!

I’ve known for a long time that postpartum depression (PPD) is all too common among new moms. But what I didn’t realize until chatting with a friend of mine is that symptoms of PPD can surface and linger well past the 4th trimester. .. .. And not all symptoms look the same. My friend, Jess, had a lot of anger and rage, not “the blues” necessarily. She didn’t experience PPD with her first child, but did with her second, and didn’t realize what was happening until almost a year later. .. .. As a society we know more about PPD and health practitioners are starting to screen for it more. But only in those early weeks. .. .. Jess let me write about her profound and heartbreaking experiences with PPD and how she initially fell through the cracks. She wants us all to talk about all the issues surrounding PPD so that there’s less stigma, better support, and more recognition of how PPD can manifest in so many ways. (Link in bio.) .. .. Thank you Jess for your bravery and sharing your truth 💕💗💞 .. .. Have you or someone you love struggled with PPD? What kind of help did you or didn’t you receive? How can we raise better awareness and conversations about this issue? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mamaonthemend #postpartum #postpartumcare #postpartumhealth #womenhealth #4thtrimester #fourthtrimester #pelvichealth #postpartumprogress #selfcare #womenshealth #reproductivehealth #postpartumhealing #pelvicphysicaltherapy #postpartumdepression #PPD #postpartumsupport #nonjudgmentalsupport #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnessawareness #NICUbabies #NICUparents

Repeat after me... Being a mom does not mean I have to put my goals and health on hold. . Being a mom gives you the opportunity to get creative. . Being a mom gives you the opportunity to teach your children how to care for their body both inside and out. . Being a mom gives you such a clear WHY. . My oldest came home from school the other day and said, we get to do burpees at school now momma and guess what?! I already knew how to do them!!!” . My oldest said to my niece who kept saying she couldn't ride the bike, ”Yes you can do it! You can do anything you set your mind too!” She listened and successfully rode the bike. . What if I put my growth on hold? . What if instead, I paused my goals? . I possibly wouldn't have these moments to cherish. . Because the those moments are a result of him watching me and listening to me. . Building myself up mentally, physically and in all other aspects of my life. . I'm teaching them lessons even I have no clue of. . So repeat after me again, being a mom does not mean I have to put my goals and health on hold. . If you're ready to stop putting your health goals on hold I have 1 spot available for 1:1 online coaching the link to apply is in my bio. ___ #postpartumjourney #noexcusemoms #onlinehealthcoach

This page was originally a place to document my journey for myself. After I had Scout though I shared this page so now it has opened up to friends. I love that, but it does make me feel more vulnerable sharing things like this. To remain true to the original purpose of this account for myself however, here is this moment for me to look back on in a couple weeks or months. As I got ready for bed last night I really loved how I felt about what looked back at me. I am loving my body, all of its new textures and added curves. Yes, even that part of my belly that hangs over and pushes buttons on my phone without my knowing. I am thankful for how it was designed and what all God has allowed me to do with it. Self love is worship of the Creator himself. Here’s to a new kind of wild 💜 (and thanks @leoburger666 for my new “real adult” creams) #fearfullyandwonderfullymade #hisworkmanship #worshippingwithfacecreams #andcontactsolution

A few weeks ago James started legit smiling and with this picture I had finally captured it on camera. But...as I started to put my post together, I looked past his sweet face to see my belly poking or. I had just finished nursing him and he was sweetly smiling at me so I hadn’t even thought to pull my shirt down. I’m posting this because this IS me...#this_is_postpartum. He lived in that belly for 9 months and is now smiling the sweetest smiles. If you’re giving yourself a hard time today, yesterday, or will tomorrow, remember that your body has done great things. Whether it’s birthed a baby, ran a marathon, worked to support your family, or any number of the amazing things you do, it deserves your love and care 💕 ⠀ . . Onesie: @cabooseebrand, check out my stories today for an awesome giveaway!

Yesterday was pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day. . . Almost 3 years ago - we said goodbye to our baby we never got to meet. My heart was broken in so many pieces and for a while really didn’t know how to feel or grieve. I lost a baby I never met and only carried for 10 weeks but the grief felt much more than the short time I carried our baby. But I was surrounded by people who loved me and reminded me that my grieving and tears were normal & showed how much I loved our little baby. There are still days now - where I get filled with tears just thinking about it but I also know and trust that God’s timing is perfect and His plan is great. . . And this photo shows just that. This was taken just weeks before we had our rainbow baby, Mason. I can’t imagine life without this little nugget and so grateful for his life. . . So sending lots of love to all my fellow mamas who have a little angel watching over you! ❤️

At-home cardio this morning while little baby sleeps 💦🙌🏼😴 As much as I’d rather be outside jogging or in the gym, sometimes it just doesn’t workout with our schedule and we have to IMPROVISE.

🤨YOU HAVE PLENTY OF EXCUSES. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You were up 4 times last night nursing and finally gave up and let the baby just stay latched while you caught one more hour of sleep. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You have been spit up on so many times today that you gave up on changing clothes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your hair has been grabbed and pulled by tiny hands who don’t know any better so you yell at your husband instead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your toddler had a 20 minute meltdown because you cut his grilled cheese in half. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You went into a meeting and your milk let down in front of everyone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You sat in the car for two hours while the baby sleeps because you knew if you tried to move her she’d wake up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is not the time in life to be listening to that fitness at all costs bullshit (really, let’s just always avoid that one mmmkay?) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the time for radical, relentless self-care. And when you’re a new mom, self-care is not always going to look like working out and perfect eating. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes it will mean sleeping instead of working out. Sometimes it will mean just getting food in your body, any food. Sometimes it will mean talking to a doctor about your overwhelming emotions. Sometimes it will mean just telling yourself you’re doing a good job and reminding yourself that this is HARD. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👇🏻👇🏻TAG a mama who needs to read this!!!👇🏻👇🏻

// Tuesday transformation // Heres my #postpartum transformation. On the left I'm 39 weeks pregnant, in the middle I'm 1 week postpartum and on the right I'm 8 months postpartum. I'm back to my prepregnancy weight, now all that's left is to get more muscle definition. What I've done: 💪 lots of walking with baby in the pram 💪 exclusively breastfeeding which burns extra calories 💪 tried to make healthy food choices without giving anything up. I stil eat cakes and takeaways. It's all about balance 💪followed a personalised exercise programme with the occasional gym class thrown in I've not pushed myself to get my prepregnancy body back. I've allowed myself plenty of time to heal and made slow but steady progress. If you need a help to love your postpartum body again, DM me. Mum-tums are amazing - it's a beautiful reminder of how you housed your baby, but they are also a choice. Despite what you may be led to believe, you dont have to have one if you don't want to. #postpartumfitness #postpartumjourney #postpartumhealth #postpartumworkout ##postpartumbody #fitmom #tuesdaytransformation #weightloss #weightlossjourney

"My body can't seem to do the things it used to" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👆I hear this all the time as a wellness coach for postpartum mamas. Heck, I have said it myself! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My goal as a coach is to take you from "I can't do what I used to" to "My body is strong and functioning well". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How does that happen? ✔️Intentional work on breath and core engagement ✔️Fueling your body with foods that support recovery and improve your quality of life ✔️Shifting your mind to trust the process and allow grace in your postpartum journey ✔️Having the guidance and support from an expert and mama who's been there to walk the path with you ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My babies have forced me to look at life differently. From parenting decisions, to what I put in and on our bodies, and even causing me to shift my idea of wellness. It's different than I imagined, but so much better. Once I released my grip on what I USED to do and focused on what I am CAPABLE of now, things began to shift mentally and the physical followed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you're ready to ditch dwelling on the past and shift your post-baby mind and body to strong and functional, my core + pelvic floor program is the foundational tool to do just that! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let's set up a time to chat and see if this is the program you need to get you out of this rut! #linkinbio . . . . . . . . . . #postpartumhealth #postpartumfitness #takingbackpostpartum #bodyafterbaby #momswholift #thatmomlife #diastasisrecti #mombod #postnatalfitness #prenatalworkout #prenataltalk #girlsgonestrong #movementislife #functionalfitness #prenatalnutrition #pelvicfloor #pelvicfloorhealth #physicaltherapy #pregnancyproblems #fitpregnancy #prenatals #prenatalvitamins #momstobe #fitpregnancyproblems #inspiredpregnancy #pregnancyjourney #healthyjourney

There’s nothing like pulling the ol’ breakfast switcharoo to add some spice to your life! . . Normally I’m a #smoothiequeen but today I’m all about this @gemarobakery GF toast topped with avocado, two fried eggs, and a few fork-fulls of @pyramidferments garlic and jalapeño sauerkraut. DAY-UM! . And speaking of spicing it up - thanks to @cocoandcowe I’m now obsessed with hot sauces. 🙏🏻😂 . If you know @cocoandcowe - you become addicted to her nicer-than-humanly-possible personality. If you watch her Insta-stories - you become addicted to hot sauce! 🔥🔥🔥 . Consider yourself warned! 🤷🏼‍♀️

#talkaboutittuesday DID YOU KNOW... that intrusive thoughts fall under the umbrella of OCD? I didn’t. - Intrusive thoughts are ones that seemingly come out of nowhere and distress and upset you. They are repetitive and unwanted and often have no basis in logic. - Postpartum OCD thoughts centre around your baby and often make you doubt your abilities as a mother. They can make you feel as if you are psychotic and out of control. - Some of the thoughts I experienced were: * If I use the kettle I may pour boiling water on my baby * If there are knives in the drawer I may wake in the night and stab my baby * I may drop my baby down the stairs if I carry her out of our apartment. - These kinds of thoughts are deeply disturbing and for me I felt as if I couldn’t trust myself. I felt that I loved my baby so intensely that I had to protect her from myself. - I’ll talk about this more in my next blog post this Friday and discuss the help I received to recover from post partum OCD. • • • #mother #motherhood #mothers #motherhoodunplugged #motherswithanxiety #motherofone #postpartumanxiety #postpartumhealth #postpartumanxiety #postpartumjourney #maternalmentalhealth #perinatalmentalhealth #perinatalanxiety #postpartumocd #postpartumocdawareness #intrusivethoughts #ocd

Throwing it back to my first ever “goodbye” picture - the start of my postpartum journey. Looking at this now, I’m in awe of the human body. I don’t judge myself for where I started. I’m not disgusted with my extra fluff or stretched skin. It’s beautiful, perfectly imperfect. What a miracle to have grown two beautiful baby girls, every scar and blemish is because they lived within me. I waited a long time to earn those imperfections. . So new Mom’s, no, I’m not going to tell you to “go get your body back.” Instead, let’s embrace the skin you’re in, let’s shoot for small healthy changes that make you feel great, and let’s learn to love the journey no matter how fast or how slow. . I will say, I’m not sure where I’d be without my accountability warriors. No matter the season of life, they propel me forward and keep me going. . This month marks 12 months since Madison’s c-section. So don’t look at my current photo and feel defeated because you’re comparing your beginning to my middle. Just making myself a priority, in the midst of raising two kids under 3, for a little bit each day - led me to where I am now. . Where are all my ladies working on loving themselves today? Celebrate yourself, no matter how big or small! And if you need accountability warriors in your corner too, put an emoji below and I’ll be in touch. . You can always email me too - gritandgrace.lauren@gmail.com 💌 #gritandgracecollective

Rushing can prevent you from emptying your bladder fully. While sitting on the toilet take 5- 10 deep breaths to help everything empty out fully. If you have trouble slowing down, try setting a timer on your phone for 1 minute to get you to sit for a little longer.

How to self care as a mom experiencing postpartum depression or anxiety? . According to postpartumdepression.org 1 in 7 women can expect to experience depression in the year following giving birth. There's a false narrative that self care is luxurious and you have to spend money to accomplish it. As a new mom self-care will seem selfish, unnecessary, and a waste of time, that it won’t provide any relief so why bother. Plus if you're experiencing PPD/PPA its easy to not think of it at all. . The thing to remember though is that self care isn't always fancy its any small intentional act towards yourself or for yourself. Things like taking a bath while the baby sleeps - we tend to jump to chores most times. Self-care means a call your doctor to report your feeling, taking your prescription meds. Booking that appointment with the counselor that you have been putting off. .

Breakfast is my favorite meal! I can’t just deprive myself of the things I love, so I improvise. These are definitely not as fluffy as normal pancakes, but they’re still delicious and they satisfy the craving! Banana blueberry protein pancakes (sorry no measurements, I just eyeball it until it’s a thick consistency): ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • banana • whole wheat flour • vanilla protein powder • baking powder • almond milk I add in the blueberries before I flip, and then top with vanilla Greek yogurt and strawberries! 😍🥞🍓

Relationships are built on trust and loyalty. How trusting and loyal have you been to your body? 🤔 When you start taking care of yourself you start feeling better, you start looking better, and you start to attract better. It all starts within you 💕

Do all these Halloween 🎃 treats and candy bowls really spook 👻 you out? It’s that time of year again when everyone starts to feel even more guilty about their food choices. Diet culture loves the holidays but it shouldn’t ruin your ability to enjoy this time of year! 🎃 To go along with yesterday’s post about stepping out of your comfort zone, I challenge you to give yourself unconditional permission to eat ALL foods including candy and treats! Restriction feeds obsession. As soon as you say to yourself that you are not allowed to take any candy from the candy bowl, all you can think about is that dang candy. Treat yourself today and everyday by listening to your body’s intuition instead of silencing it. If you want a piece of candy or two, three, go for it! 🎃 What’s your favorite Halloween candy or treat? 🎃 At Wholesome Start you receive 1:1 nutrition counseling and learn how to make food work with you to feel your best!

It has now been 44 days since giving birth. As moms know days and nights are filled with taking care of the baby. Feedings, diaper changes, laundry and rocking the baby seem never-ending while our own health isn’t looked after as well. It can be difficult to do the simple things like hygiene when the baby won’t let us put her/him down to go take a shower. We power through the day smelling like spit up. Yet our body just went through a very traumatic event (even a healthy, ‘easy’ delivery is traumatic). I beg all postpartum moms to read this book and make their health a priority as well during this fragile time. A healthy, happy mom = a healthy, happy family. There is no other equation.

Today’s Thought 💭... “Trust your journey. Trust the process. Raise your energy, and the right people will come into your life” 🙏🏼 Yesterday I had my 6 week post partum visit with my OBGYN doctor 👩🏻‍⚕️....and it made me reflect on how far I’ve come. Did you guys know I was so worried I wouldn’t be able to have children because of my age? When I was in my early 30’s - I’d have moments of panic- Like omg 😮 how am I going to have kids when I haven’t even found the right guy yet? - I kept looking at my friends around me who were getting married 👰🏼- and thought 💭 what’s the matter with me? Why isn’t it happening for me? I clearly remember one OBGYN visit with my doctor years ago- and I said to her. Am I going to be able to have kids? I’m already in my 30’s and nowhere close to being married. I still remember her looking at me across from her desk and said of course you’re going to have children!!! Natalie- I have women who have children well into their 40’s! It took some personal development, reflection, & an unexpected move back home 🏡 to Canada 🇨🇦(after being forced to leave my full time job- because of immigration issues)- that I finally began to understand that every little thing that occurs in our lives is meant to happen (whether good or bad). It’s up to us to look at these moments and learn from them. It’s also important to know that each of our journeys are OUR journeys. It’s ok 👌🏼 if you’re not living a life like everyone else. You don’t have to get married at a certain age, or have children at a certain age. Try not to let society dictate what you’re supposed to do. Learning to live in the moment, taking the time for me, doing what made me happy 😃 without paying attention to what others thought of me, and surrounding myself with people who raised my energy has been one of the best decisions I have made! It’s when I truly found my happiness. It’s when Mike came into my life... which eventually brought me our two sweet boys 💙💙- that I never thought would happen. If you can relate with my story. The way I used to feel. Don’t let it consume you. Know that it will happen for you when the time is right. Trust your

Baby carrying posture ❗️picture 1 shows what NOT to do- all weight distributed to left hip, rounded shoulders and locked knees. Picture 2 shows the CORRECT posture- slight bend in knees, neutral pelvis, weight distributed equally between both legs. Anything we can do to avoid pelvis floor dysfunction, low back pain, and hip pain💁🏻‍♀️ #postpartumtips #potpartumjourney #postpartumhealth #pelvichealth #babycarrying #posture

Never thought I had the qualifications to be a mom. I was a raging cyclone hitting every big city looking for my purpose 🌪 💔 I thank God for putting you in my life to clear the haze in my mind and opening my eyes and heart to what I’m capable of truly doing. I know your watching everything and I’m going to make you proud 💗 #purposedriven #babygirl #sofiamariehernandez #newmom #postpartumhealth #newchallenges #raisinghealthybabies #yearone #babiesofinstagram #gerberbabysearch2018 #lashesonfleek #mybabyiscuterthanme #dominicanita #puertoriquenita
