Let’s face it: momming is hard.
And it’s not just hard because you’re caring for tiny humans, it’s hard because while caring for those tiny humans, we often forget or don’t have time to take care of ourselves.
Pregnancy can leave you with changes to your body that you never expected, and the postpartum period can leave you feeling out of sorts, and worried that you’ll never be the same again. And the thing is, maybe you won’t! But that’s not meant to discourage you– your body went through something incredibly difficult, and may not go back to the exact shape or size it was before pregnancy.
But, and this is a big, big but:
That is okay! We’re not meant to go back, we’re meant to move forward. And if forward means different, all you can do now is do your best to get to where you want to be for yourself.
Another truth about mommyhood though, is that it can be pretty isolating at times, am I right? So what we all need at some point is a community. A tribe, a village, whatever you want to call it, we moms need to be there for eachother. We need to lift eachother up when we’re having a rough time, and we need to provide eachother with the support needed not only to take care of our littles, but ourselves as well.
This is why I’ve started I Train Therefore I Eat:Mommy Style, a Facebook group that is meant to be a supportive community for moms and moms to be who might need a little help on their health and fitness journey. We can take care of the little ones better if we’re doing well ourselves, and this is a place to help you do just that!
Motivation, support, challenges, wins, fails– we’ll discuss it all. We’re all going through the same things, and whether your baby is 6 weeks old or 6 years old, it doesn’t get any easier to do it on your own!
So please, join us and help build a community where we can be strong together, supportive of one another, and we can all get back to feeling our best one small step at a time. Click on the link above, search the group on Facebook, or click here to join.
See you there!
