Some days you just gotta take a little break, throw on a too-small bikini, say big belly and side boob be damned, and soak in some Vitamin D.
Nope, it’s not a flattering angle, or picture, at all. but it’s #reallife right now. I skipped my workout, took some work poolside but didn’t do it, and dropped Rowan off at daycare for an hour JUST SO I COULD HAVE A MOMENT OF ME TIME. I started to feel guilty - for not working out, for not doing anything business-related, and for taking my kid to daycare when I’m home chilling by the pool...but ya know what? I’ve taken ONE NAP during pregnancy. Other than that it has been straight up running, hustle, toddler stuff, family stuff. I was feeling that ugly feeling in my stomach this morning of just being so overwhelmed and stressed. Both my coffee date and lunch date canceled, and God whispered..’rest my child.’ Seriously, I swear. Ok maybe not in so many words, but I’m really pretty sure He was cool with it.
I only lasted 20 minutes because it’s 1000 degrees outside, but I feel so much calmer! I needed a little reset!
Listen to your body, to your mind, and love them! Mamas, give yourself the gift of self care every once in a while. The world and all the fires you have to put out aren’t going anywhere..they’ll be there when you come back! And you’ll be all the stronger and more capable for taking a little time out!
