Self Worth

Levi Running

I used to feel ashamed of my faded stretch marks and loose skin from pregnancy. For a long time I felt like it was unfair that I could get in really good shape but no matter what I did, I still had soft skin that wrinkled when I bent over and little faded stretch marks everywhere. Self-acceptance was a long journey for me. Once I learned that my self-worth was so much more than just my outer shell ...[Read More]

This is NOT ok.

Self Care

  Something happened this morning and I feel like I can no longer be quiet about this.  I have been targeted for so long by distributors and salespeople selling body wraps and creams claiming they can "fix" my "broken" body.  Every time I make a post talking about how I am okay with the stretched skin I have on my stomach from carrying two ten pound babies I get literally hundreds, if not tho ...[Read More]

My 70lb Pregnancy Weight Gain

41 Weeks Pregnants

I always gain a lot of weight when I am pregnant, even with this last pregnancy where I still worked out and watched what I ate. I was around 218lbs when I delivered my little girl (and, no, I wasn't pregnant with twins! Ha). I always get really chubby cheeks and a HUGE belly! Although at the time I was embarrassed of my round cheeks in this video, I am so glad my husband filmed this so I have the ...[Read More]

Grief is a Funny Thing

Grief Square

    I haven't blogged much the past month (actually at all) talking about the ectopic pregnancy and recovery process I have been going through since my surgery where they removed the baby and my left fallopian tube 7 weeks ago (if you are new to my blog you can read more about it in the blog archives here).  Partly just because I've been so darn busy I haven't had much time to write.  My husband h ...[Read More]

Thank You

Thank You

  I've been a little quiet with updates on my blog lately.  It's funny because three weeks ago, right after this ectopic pregnancy happened, I really wanted to talk about it.  Talking, writing, and sharing my feelings made me feel better and I think it was a good step in the healing process.  But, the past few weeks I just haven't felt like talking about things.  My husband is back to his bus ...[Read More]

Scary

Ectopic Pregnancy

Yesterday I had my one week follow up appointment with the OBGYN who did my ectopic pregnancy surgery (called a salpingectomy), Dr. Deborah Sherman.  I was looking forward to this appointment because of all the complications I had post-surgery and was really looking forward to getting some reassurance that things were going to improve from here on out.  Physically, things have been much better.  M ...[Read More]

Life Goes On…

ER2

I probably should go buy some lottery tickets. I've had enough bad luck this week that something lucky is bound to come my way, right? I haven't blogged about this yet, but two nights ago I was back in the ER. My stomach was still really protruded and I was passing between grape and kiwi-size blod clots. I was concerned about possible internal bleeding because of those large clots and the pain was ...[Read More]

Sale!

New Year

  I am not allowed to workout for 4-6 weeks because of my surgery, but I would love nothing more than being able to serve and help you guys with the start of this new year. I've found that when I am sad or discouraged, changing my focus on serving and helping others really puts me in a good place. I am going to offer 20% off both of my training programs for next three days using the code NEWY ...[Read More]

Not Fair

ectopic pregnancy2

  This post is going to have a lot of information that maybe I shouldn't be sharing (physical stuff going on with my body), so just a heads up you have fair warning that if you don't want to read about the unpleasant physical side efffects of an ectopic pregnancy you should stop reading. It's just not fair that I have to suffer through this.  I'm not even talking about the emotional side, jus ...[Read More]
