I’m Still constantly being asked about weight gain in pregnancy! 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️ At present I’m not in what Id consider “MY perfect shape” Ive gained 11 lbs. My bra size has increased 2 cup sizes (Gorks is well chuffed) My cellulite has increased (thank you Estrogen) and I’ve counted a few extra stretch marks on my ass 🙋🏼‍♀️ However, despite all of the above, I actually love my body more than ever! It’s totally normal to gain weight in pregnancy. Some gain a little, some gain a lot 🤷🏼‍♀️ Pregnancy is a privilege sadly denied to many and I know how lucky I am. Of course I’d be lying if I said the changes in my body weren’t scary, and I did have a moan to Gorks early on about gaining weight, especially coming from a place of always being in control of my body. The bigger picture though is SO much more important! I’m still training, I’m still healthy and I’m happy which is what really matters. Reading messages from other mums or mums to be has been lovely and I do feel like we’re part of a cool gang all celebrating the extra inches, bumps, lumps and new arrivals 🥳 After my baby is born and only when im ready will I focus on my training properly again using the program from my book, but I’m under no pressure to hit a certain size by a certain date. (Hats off to those that do!) But No chance for me! ESP with a new baby and new hormones in tow. Slow and steady ALWAYS wins long term. I’m all about PB’s with training, not a number on a scale, and right now I’ve hit my proudest PB in my entire life by being pregnant 🤰

Sliding into 2019 😏 FYI I look nothing like I do in this picture right now. I’m not as lean, not as strong and I ain’t got my Bahamas holiday tan either. That’s because over the last month I’ve trained only 8 times and I’ve relaxed my diet. Not to the stage of “pigging out” but if my family & friends have gone out of their way to buy me white chocolate toberlerones then the least I can do is eat them 😜 Years ago this would have got to me in the form of feeling guilty, feeling fat and feeling crap about the fact I, heaven forbid enjoyed our once a year festive period. I now have the tools, knowledge, discipline & focus and right mental attitude to be able to get back to feeling & looking my best in a matter of weeks. It’s not the end Of the world if you let yourself go a little over Christmas. Please don’t beat yourself up. Get back on track, be persistent and make small changes to getting back to feeling like YOU. I’ve stopped on the toberlerone now & im back to my usual clean eating, I also trained again today too & I felt like a beginner again! All to be expected though so all good. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas!!! Ps. I can’t wait for Easter 😜😂😂
