Instead of focusing on how motherhood changed my body, I’m celebrating how it changed my soul - Having a baby does a number on your body image issue, even issues that you thought you’d worked thru. I had been much heavier in my past & worked really hard to get healthier and lose the weight before. I didnt have much support besides a few close friends. Then life happened, I got married... I moved... I got pregnant... i had an amazing pregnancy & felt the most beautiful i have ever felt bc i mean... I was building a human being inside of my body, thats pretty badass! — But after... Why did I think I would just 'snap back' ?! The postpartum phase was even harder. In my hormonal, sensitive state, the whole structure of my body feels like it had completely changed. Which it had, but why was that so bad?!- I changed my whole philosophy of who I was. I was a new person, & I had a new body. I was committed to learning to love myself so that I could teach my child the same. It didn’t happen overnight. Each new step brought me closer to body positivity:

I engaged in new activities that I was told my body could never do.
I stopped obsessing about losing the “baby weight.” & started obsessing over my HEALTH & HAPPINESS.
I wore my damn swimsuit.
I believed that my body was beach-ready as it was.
And I started talking to people about how my body is not open to their commentary.
-These are lessons I learned over time, not overnight.— I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism & sat in the Dr office & talked about my next steps for using exercise as a foundation for my physical AND mental health. This concept was something I had misconstrued my whole life. I was always so concerned about the number on the scale & the size of my jeans that I missed the importance of what FEELS good for my body & mind.--Feeling good in my body was for me to define. There is no one body type. My body is my own. My body is the only one of its kind, & I want to love and honor it. So I’ve started to do my best to do that, which includes being mindful about food & exercising regularly, for the health of my body & mind. I’m on a journey to understand, accept, & love my body & I welcome you to join me

We all need someone to lean on sometimes 😏 .

but life skill☝🏼is learning to lean & rely on YOURSELF. Everything you need is already inside, who makes the rules? Live by what feels right to you🤘🏼💕 .

p.s. I don’t get it but I was soooo frustrated with why I wasn’t seeing my friends & fam on IG but apparently it’s bc they changed the algorithm again (ironically so you can see more friends & fam?! I can’t even🙄) so make sure you are DOUBLE TAPPING💕on the pics from accts you want to see [ including my pics😘 ] I have a bad habit of being passive & not liking pics even tho I like the person I’m following so if you’re like me—we gotta change that habit or we’ll just see ads etc!!!!

Okay okay HEAR ME OUT FOR JUST A MINUTE! 🗣️👂🏻 Saying that proper Nutrtition and exercise doesn’t work is totally BS! ⚠️CAUTION ⚠️Truth bomb ahead 💥 Because honestly it’s an excuse to get you off the hook for not putting in the work! 💥 Everyone will see results at a different pace. 💥 Science is wonderful in that it’s proof of function. Nutrition and exercise are backed by SCIENCE. I mean the real stuff too! Not the pseudo mumbo-jumbo.
I have spent a large portion of my life making excuses for why I wasn’t seeing success or hitting goals && the TRUTH is they were excuses 😬😣so I could blame everything else except MYSELF! 😳 I know that there is at least one ☝️ of you out there doubting the process because others are saying it doesn’t work.
I know that PERSON I use to be is out there in at least ☝️ of you and YOU need to hear it!
In December I was losing my 💩 and my depression was at an all time low. Now it’s only February 22 and I feel like a whole new person! I am the JESSICA that my husband fell in love with, the Mom my kids deserve and the confident woman I should be.
It’s not all about weight and inches but change your mind set, believe in the process & believe in yourself! The rest will follow. ❤️ ☀️The PROCESS ONLY WORKS IF YOU DO TOO☀️ Are you ready to put in the work and change your life?! (Ps pointing to my legs because today was the BEST LEG DAY EVER!) #momlife #autismmom #depressionwarrior #myantidepressantiscardio #anxietywarrior #psoriasiswarrior #boymomlife💙 #thisis30 #targetaddicts #coffeeislife #beachhairdontcare #sunshineandtanlines #navywifelife #prenursingstudent #baristalife #pursuitofhappiness #goodvibesandtanlines #wishiwasatthebeach #momswhoswear #winelovers #tacosarelife #baseballmoms #90skidsallgrownup #fbombsandpeacesigns #margaritasarelife #iwishiwasdaydrinking #parenthood #hotmessexpress #momsincollege #studentmoms

Do you ever have one of those days where you really can’t hold it together even if your life depended on it? Uhm hiiii 👋🏻👋🏻that’s me today!
During my workout McKinley messed with our weights and I can NOT figure out how to put them back. I’ve literally cleaned my kitchen 100x since we woke up. I’m scared to go back upstairs as laundry is piling up faster than I can clean it.

Everything and anything Mckinley has eaten today is stained on her clothes, and I reallyyyyy don’t want to change her YET again. Ask me how many times she’s pooped today.
My hair? SO dirty.

Happy Thursday from the hot mess express to you!!! #hotmessexpress #hotmessmom #wifemomboss #mamapreneur #clusterf #crazyday #momlife #momlifeproblems #ihatelaundry #crazyhairday #dryshampooplease #messybaby #12monthsold #crazybaby

Oh heyyyyyyyy 👋🏻👋🏻
.
Do you think to do what we do, or to live this life you gotta be “perfect?” HA! 😂😂
.
The alarm was turned off, forgot my kids lunch at home, had a doctor appointment (why are doctors ALWAYS late for their own appointments?!), idiots can’t drive in the rain and third trimester exhaustion is taking over. 😴 #thirdtrimesterproblems .
Oh, and this hair hasn’t been washed in FIVE days. 🖐🏻 #dirtyhairdontcare .
🤷🏻‍♀️ there’s also a stain on my shirt from my lunch, that is super portable and in a sealed cup with a straw. How is that even possible?! #hotmessmama .
So no, Perfection is NOT here. Not today. Not really ever. #notperfection
It’s about being the best YOU can be. The best person possible. And sometimes you’re going to hit a funky day. And that’s okay too. Embrace the funk, and move on. .
Isn’t that what this life is all about any way? #hotmessexpress #pregnantmoms #lunchtogo #momontherun .

I may not be going to Miami for Spring Break but I sure am getting ready for bikini season!
The best part is that I’m not doing it for the bikini.
I’m doing it for my health and happiness and the bikini body is just an added bonus 😉
We are planning March Bootcamp.
Who wants to get a bikini body with me?
Message me and let’s get you started and maybe even get you a discount this month!

This morning was so hard. Fighting, crying, frustration, and 2/5 Howell girls got out of the car at school crying and angry. ➕ I wasn’t a great role model either. I yelled, frankly escalated the situation, and acted sarcastically. ➕I wasn’t proud of the way we ended the morning. ➕By the time I got home from dropping them off I had a pit in my stomach. The immature side of me just wanted to either stew all day or feign ignorance. But i honestly just felt so yuck. ➕ I went to the grocery store and grabbed a cupcake for the two that had a crummy morning and took them to them during lunchtime. ➕ I quickly handed them a cupcake, made eye contact, and told them that I was sorry our day got off to such a rough start and that they’d been in my heart all day and that i was proud of them. ➕ The hugs (however brief- their friends were watching!! 😂) made it 💯 worth it. ➕ I refuse to believe that there’s a bad day that can’t be fixed with an apology and some TLC. ➕#motherhood #grace #motherhoodishard #momoftweens #momofgirls #notfortheweak #hotmessexpress
