From a baby to a bikinibody … Can i?

So where to start..

In all honesty, I have never read a blog in my whole life.

Well that’s not entirely true, I twice started to follow someone because they asked me to so I just did and well I did log in once, scanned their page and thought they were awesome in shaping their page, I saw the most beautiful pictures and was truly impressed and thought wow, well done you! But I was just not interested.

I never thought in a million years I would ever write my own. So what changed?

How to deal with my post partum body?!

Well, I am on a mission. Yes me, I.. just simple plain old me.

I want to be able to put on my bikini, in the summer of 2018 and walk tall, not like, O look at me I am a top model/ rockstar / hottie I want to be her.. no, just to put on my bikini and not focus on all of my 1000 insecurities and cover myself up.

Just by writing this I get more insecure every word I put down but then I think, there must be a trillion of other mums just like you out there coping with this issue and feeling insecure.

Because that is what I am now, a mum…

Mumlife 2.0

A proud mum I might add, a proud mum of two beautiful girls.

But being pregnant twice did not help me to feel more confident in my swimwear… at all.

So.. pretty scary shit, to write this down for everyone to read.. and o before you think well lets go to her Instagram account @frombabytobikinibody and find a pic of her in her bikini.. this might never happen, ever.

It is like I said. I, would like to do this for me. For nobody else, just for me.

And whoever I can motivate, help, stimulate to achieve the same goal.. please join me in this journey and bare with me.

I started an Instagram account posting pictures of healthy recipes and me trying to do sports because it really did great things for me. It motivated me to post another great healthy recipe and hit the gym an second or even a third time that week and it worked! I slimmed down.. I noticed I was able to wear some of my old clothes again and they even did fit me better then before.

Weightloss after pregnancy ..

The day before I gave birth to my second babygirl I weight just over 88.3 kg ( 194.66 lbs) and today I am proud to say I almost reached my goals of 62 kg ( 136.6 lbs ).

My current status is 63.0 kg ( 138.8 lbs).

But I believe the scale does not represent a healthy or unhealthy body.. it is how you feel in your body.

That being said, I would like a butt, you know a round one. One of those perkier ones.

And I would like to show just a little bit of muscle.. and that goal.. well I have a long journey ahead.

But that’s ok. I’m working on it.

So what is this Blog about, what can you expect?

  • I would like to share my healthy recipes.
  • I would like to share pictures of those recipes.
  • I would like to share my journey, my ups and my down and write about it.
  • I love to review new products and tell you all about it.
  • I will try to manage my grammar ( beacause I kinda suck at this part )
  • I would like to share workout tips.
  • I would like to share people / tips / things that influence me
  • And last but not least .. I would like to inspire, help and motivate others who can relate.

O and remember I am NOT a nutritionist nor am I a sport instructor.

Love,

Margriet 😉
