The changes that happen in your body after pregnancy and childbirth are no joke. Most of you are moms and totally get what I’m talking about. Having 3 boys, big ones at that, has changed my body for sure. It also changed my mindset for a long time. But I’m beginning (finally after 9 years of motherhood) to be in a place that I’m really comfortable in my skin again. Maybe getting older has something to do with it, or just finally coming to grips that there is no going back? Haha. But I want to share some tips with you that have really helped me.
I want my kids to want to be strong like mom! I workout at home with DVDs, apps I’ve downloaded or running on the treadmill. I’m in the middle of a 12 week, at home program that I’m loving and I’ll share all the details with you soon. My goal is M-W-F, plus 1 weekend day. My kids hate going to a nursery so gyms just don’t work for me right now. I love group classes, so in a couple years, I’ll get back into those. But for now, I’m doing what works with my family and schedule. Working out not only helps me be fit enough to keep up with my kids, but it also makes me feel more confident and helps keep my diet more on point.
I started a new skincare routine about 2 months ago that has made a big difference in my stomach. I had seen some fantastic before and after pictures, as well as my neighbors results from using Nerium Age Defying Night Cream and Firming Body Contour Cream and figured it was worth a try. Well, I’ve been pleasantly surprised with my results! I’ve been alternating the creams morning and night to help with the loose skin and stretch marks that I have. Honestly, this has been one of the hardest body changes for me to come to grips with. It’s frustrating to feel like you can lose the weight and get more fit, but still have the loose skin over it all. Thankfully now, this skin care routine has helped me!
I’m admittedly super uncomfortable to post an up close and personal pic of my stomach. I’ve had 3 big babies and a short torso, which caused more skin stretching than I would have ever wanted. But. I can tell a pretty good difference in using the combo of the creams. My 2 biggest problem areas are the loose skin right above my belly button, which has improved a lot! But even more than that, is the pooch of skin right above my c-section incision. I think it’s a pretty normal issue for c-section mamas, but I don’t dig it! It’s not the easiest to tell in these pictures, but on the bottom left, you can see a bump out right underneath the waistband of the shorts. But as you can see on the right, it’s nearly completely flat right now, which makes me REALLY happy!
We’re both really happy with our Nerium results and I love that they offer a money back guarantee if you aren’t for any reason. They also offer a business opportunity that might interest any of you looking to make money on the side and you can see more about that here!
