Let's celebrate Mothers! I want to share what's in the heart of my middle-aged body... the one that gave birth to three 8 pound babies.
There’s always an “underneath”. Sometimes it’s a mere layer behind clothing. Sometimes it’s a whole lot deeper. You don’t necessarily have to put your loose skin and stretch marks on display, but more power to you if that’s your choice. There is no such thing as perfection, so be careful when you romanticize someone else’s life; their circumstances; their bodies.
I believe in being the best I can be in every way so I care for my body, my mind, and my soul every day. I cheer myself on, I forgive myself, and I remain humble and grateful. Unlike my sagging boobs, my wider hips, my wrinkles and my spider veins, I can control all that – with exercise, eating nourishing food, learning, and lots of self-care.
Try really hard to abandon the disgust and swap it for a feeling of kinship with the moms in these photos and the moms in your life. We belong to an exceptional, admirable club.

- I’m 38 weeks out of the total 40 weeks today 🤰🏻
This pregnancy has flown by!! I know the final few days are going to feel long, but this has been such a better pregnancy than any of my others, and I’m sure working out regularly has played a big part in that. .
During my shoulder + HIIT workout today, I had an interval of twisted mountain climbers for 30 seconds. .
I obviously modified because (1) stepping makes way more sense than “running” at this point and (2) I literally can’t twist with this belly anymore 😂 But I surprised myself and was able to stay up on my toes for the entire 30 seconds!! .
At least the first time through 😉
Here’s the thing. I don’t care how modified I am right now. I’m making my health a priority so that I can hopefully have a great labor & delivery, stay healthy for this baby, and recover quickly for all five of my kids. .
I have been taking it one day at a time. I figured I would stop working out when I just couldn’t take it any more. I never thought I’d still be working out at 38 weeks!!
But staying consistent, even with light weights and modified moves, has kept me strong. And getting an endorphin rush helps me with whatever stress or fatigue I might feel from day to day. .
I don’t share this to build myself up or make you think I’m some kind of superwoman. I want to show you what’s possible when you show up for yourself every single day. It doesn’t have to be perfect (mine RARELY is) just the best you can do that day. .
I know you’ve got it in you! ✨ And I’m here to be your biggest cheerleader 🙌🏼😘

Und schwups ist schon wieder eine Woche rum. ☺️ Ich war heute so sehr mit den Urlaubsvorbereitungen beschäftigt, dass ich fast das Foto zum Wochenwechsel vergessen hätte. 😅
Mein Bauch wächst irgendwie so wahnsinnig schnell, er kommt mir von Tag zu Tag größer vor🤰🏼ansonsten gehts uns bestens und wir sind bereit für eine Woche Italien 🇮🇹 und 32 Grad☀️🏝
Guys! Reasons already why today is a GOOD day:
1. I actually woke up feeling rested and ENERGIZED! For someone who struggles with chronic fatigue, that is HUGE!
2. When I went to make my bed, I had enough energy to think, "No, I'm going to WASH this bedding instead!" (I won't even tell you how long it's been). 3. Add on to that energy a little #gomama
juice and my workouts was stellar! I bumped up to 20s on both my upright row and shoulder press! #bam
4. It's PAYDAY! Love my WEEKLY paychecks. That makes every Thursday a good day.
5. I have a handful of AMAZING women ready to sign up for my bootcamp that starts next week. If you want in, there's room, but hurry and take advantage of our awesome sale while you're at it!
6. We are one day away from the WEEKEND!! 7. School starts in 5 days! My kids are excited too so I don't have to feel bad about it.
How's that for a Thursday morning? Do you have good news to share?!
So many of you saw our preview yesterday and I truly couldn't believe how many of you came over! In Sally Fields words "You like me, you really, REALLY like me!" 😂 Did I just show my age? 👵 So I'm curious where are you all from! I saw a handful from the East coast! Drop your state below! 👇 I'm from California 🌴☉
Fall collection available TODAY! 5pm PST.🌿
Dear New Mom,
Congratulations! Your new baby is beautiful and perfect, and well, ever so small and totally intimidating, right? The idea of motherhood was awesome: but even more than awesome, it was scary. You’ll find yourself facing all sorts of completely rational new mom fears, and when you do, just know: You’re so not alone..... You’re afraid you might actually break your baby, like for reals. So your baby is small. He’s even smaller than your favorite handbag, and it’s freaking you out..... You don’t know why baby is crying. Help! The sound of your crying infant is enough to send you into instant panic mode. You frantically run through your mommy mental checklist: Fed, check. Changed, check. Cuddled, check … yet the crying continues. The longer and louder your baby cries, the more frantic you become. ...... bit don’t worry lady this happen with every new mom ... just enjoy every moment with your little munchkin and for more visit our website www.daiimaa.com ....... you can also mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org #newmom #momtobeagain #momtobesoon #preggy #preggydiaries #newmom #newmomlife #newmomdiaries #pregnancy #pregnancydiary #postnatal #prenatalyoga #newborn #newbornbaby #newmommylife #parentinggoals #parentingtips #babies #babies_with_swag #babylove #cutestbabyoninstagram #cutestbaby #cuteness

På denna bild tycker jag magen ser enorm ut och på andra tycker jag att den knappt synas. Oavsett vad så är det en liten krabat där inne som mest rör på sig under eftermiddagen när jag är hemma i soffan eller på kvällen i sängen ❤️
Känslan av att vara gravid omgång nummer 2 är lika häftigt som första gången. Jag ser fram emot det som komma och hur vår lilla familj kommer att växa ☺️❤️ Samtidigt vet jag mer vad som kommer, syftar då mest på själva förlossningen. Lite blandade känslor kring den om jag ska vara ärlig. .
Hur mår ni andra gravida? Vilken vecka? Första barnet eller fler sedan innan? Tankar? 💕
Nu peppar vi varandra! .

I had an amazing burst of energy today that I was sure would last forever. Fast forward a few hours & I hit the wall of exhaustion. Sometimes I feel like my productive days are far behind me & never to be found again... 🤦🏼♀️ #needmoresleep
Amor mío, ángel 👼 que amo yo... bendigo tu vida porque vives desde el momento de tu concepción, papá, hermano y yo te esperamos con ansias mientras estas listo para llegar a nuestros brazos.
Es impresionante la alegría que mi corazón sintió al ver tu carita, tus movimientos, tus manitos tapando tu rostro y tus piecitos hermosos, sentimiento que renace 15 años después.
TE AMAMOS Maximiliano. 🤰👼 #BabyMaximiliano

You know, just a baby in her bassinet drinking a Venti drink. In her gingham bloomers. No biggie. 🙂 #winning
