Don’t Try to Erase Motherhood!

I know a bold title right?! I recently watched a short video on Facebook not too long ago about a mom who had twins how she embraced her “after babies” body.

And she said the most powerful statement that really hit me to my core.

She said “I don’t want to erase motherhood”. It stopped me in my tracks and reminded me why I’m on this health and fitness journey.  It’s for health, longevity, strength, confidence and knowledge. It’s not the number on the scale, the abs (while it’s a bonus)… I’m not trying to erase motherhood.

It will never erase the stretch marks, the c-section scar, the loose skin and other permanent “stripes” I earned during pregnancy.

So as you continue or even as you start your own health and fitness journey, let this be a reminder of why you are doing it. xoxo
