Oh! The mom guilts. It was literally shoved into me the day I pushed Freya out. It was like here is your baby but here is all the guilt you will experience for being a woman that birth a child. Mom guilt never ends as annoying as it is. The mom guilt kicks into full gear anytime and any moment you don’t want it to. You work too much, or you don’t work enough, you spend soo much time with your baby or you don’t spend enough time with your baby. It all soo minute. You can have it all, do it all and it still wouldn’t be enough because mom guilt isn’t even about that. Its psychological and the only way out is self-love, discipline and ignoring the negative talk.

“You know someone’s special to you when… you don’t talk for a while because things get busy but when you two eventually do it’s like you didn’t miss a beat. You talk like there was no gap in between and you laugh until both your stomachs hurt. It’s a rare and special connection and personally I think it’s pure magic. If you ever find someone like this in your life, never let them go.”
thank you for being here, friend. Continue reading Friendships
if u have been following me for a while. U know I prep my meals A LOT. I love meal prepping! But ever since I’ve gotten pregnant, my meal preps have gotten boring, and truth is some weeks I don’t prep because with pregnancy and breastfeeding… some days I just don’t feel….. inspired anymore. Now that I’m back on my nutrition health kick. I’m going to try to make 1 meal with u every week. You should though pop your chicken in the air fryer for 20 mins and have eggs made or if you prefer make it along with the rice. It is all up to you. So, this week is going to be my 113 grams Protein Kimchi FriedRice. U don’t … Continue reading Over 100 grams protein meal prep!
I had to change my negative self-talk, to talk nicely to myself, to be gentle and not be soo demanding with myself. I was in the shower the other day (I know. It seems like everyone get their epiphany in the shower) and I heard myself say, I will be 6 months postpartum soon, I SHOULD be…. And then I caught myself and think, wait what. No! I shouldn’t be anything! My postpartum journey will happen for me when the time is right. I just have to put my head down and keep grinding. It isn’t easy for sure. But there is no SHOULD, there is no time frame to follow as to when I will feel 100% like myself. It all will happen for me. I need to change my self-talk to; yes maybe by 6 months postpartum I should try to be able to do 5 unassisted pull ups again. And if I don’t. maybe 3? Alright then. It is all hard, I know.

Some days I feel like a shell of a person, sometimes I feel like all I am doing is feeding, pumping, eating, and hydrating. The first 2 months of PP, my body felt strange, and it didn’t feel like mine and like it belonged to someone else aka my baby girl.
And sometimes I don’t even know what to do with it even though I have been taking care of it my whole life.

There is a lot of emphasis placed on the women’s body when discussing pregnancy fitness/nutrition. I wanted to share what I have learnt since being pregnant which I’ll carry with me forever. Pictures/Videos tell a partial story. I post my … Continue reading Your BEST is good enough.
You might not be in a place in life right now where talking about having tiny humans is a priority. Maybe it’s just taking on a new role at work and leaving your old life behind? Are you ready? Truth is we are never ready for anything for real. When I did my first bikini competition, was I truly deeply ready? No. I was not. But I did it anyway and learn with every mistake I made and fall with every step I took. Did I die? No. Was there some embarrassing moments? Sure. But I learnt, I survived and I thrived. I went on and did 5 other shows the following year! 😊
Sometimes being ready really means “being ready to take on whatever comes our way on this journey to and through parenthood with whatever life throws at you”.

Exercise is medicine. I am sure we all heard it all before, but the western medicine is not selling it because fitness has no money, that is the truth. Just look at me. Just kidding. I am doing just alright. 😉 Continue reading 5 Ways to Feel Energetic All Day Long
