On Monday I posted my first ever bikini shot on this blog…! Even though I’ve been working hard on my diet and exercise, it took quite a bit to work up to it. Body confidence is a funny thing, even before having a kid mine wasn’t great, and I think it hit rock bottom after.
This evening is the Mums’ Days Fit Club Pre-Holiday Party on the Mums’ Days Facebook Wall and I want the focus to be on body confidence! While we’ve been working hard to improve our health and fitness habits in the #MDFitClub, whether we’ve reached our goals or not, we need to cut ourselves some slack and have a great summer with our families! Our bodies are amazing. Like totally awesome!! We’ve given birth and that’s something to really celebrate, which is why I really wanted to share this amazing post with you today.
My good friend and all round wonderful, supportive woman, Kate from Pouting in Heels, is brilliant at boosting your confidence and getting some perspective. I have friends who have told me that Katie basically got them back in the gym or a bikini because before reading her stuff their self-confidence was on the floor.
I am thrilled that I can bring you this absolutely amazing post today, enjoy it and then go and celebrate you body!
