💭Why did I think it was a good idea to increase my weight on the wall sit the same day I want to increase my weight for Diane? Why did I think this was a good idea? Oh well. I’ve got this. Just need to pace myself appropriately💭
Pacing appropriately in a workout is important. You don’t always have to be the strongest if you’re smart and aware of your body.
Progress on my back piece. Big shout out to @mochelife. Thank you for being so creative and rad; also not laughing at the weird noises I make when getting tattooed 😂🤦🏼♀️

“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.” Mary Oliver
Learning to love the soft animal that is my body has been a lifelong pursuit, as it has changed, grown life, gotten bigger/smaller/stronger/more flexible. I always wished I were taller, that my breasts were bigger, and I’ve never been completely comfortable with my thighs. But lately I’m learning to embrace them, seeing their strength instead of their size, and loving them for what they help me do. That was one reason I wanted to get my most recent tattoo on my thigh... embrace, decorate, and show them off with pride. And that’s one reason i take pictures like this, because the human body is beautiful in all its many shapes and sizes! What part of your body could you show a little more love and grace to?
What I’m most proud of when it comes to my tattoo is not my ability to endure pain, or save money, or sit as still as possible for 8 hours at a time...but my ability to wholly commit to something that honestly scares me sometimes. I’m most proud of that.
Please pardon the dog butt🐾
The picture to the left is me 3 years ago. I drank a LOT of alcohol (daily), ate sweets and fastfood almost everyday, did not TAKE care of my body at all, not with training and not with food. I was not a big girl back then either, but I have never weighed that much (around 58kg). To the right is me just a week ago. I have stopped drinking, started to work out, started to eat healthy, not just eating healthy to look good but to treat my stomach-problems that I’ve ignored for almost 4 years. My current weight is 47kg, and I know that it’s not much at all. I’m fighting brain-ghosts daily to not be afraid of gaining weight in muscles. That I’ve started this journey is something I Will never regret. I feel happier, look more awake and my sleep is better. And to be honest, sometimes I feel like giving up but I never do. I will never go back to what I’ve once been. 2019, let me stay focused, humble and blessed. 🙏🏼

Anyone think this will be the last #bumpdate for little Takoda? 🤰🏻👶🏻
After our hospital trip on Monday night, I thought he was coming for sure! 🏥
Now this little man has me feeling like a first time mom all over again. 😂
I was only 2cm dilated at the hospital that night and the contractions were 6 minutes apart. 😩
I’ve continued to have contractions at home everyday, but nothing super crazy. 🤷🏻♀️
So who knows! I’ve been napping and trying to get as much rest lately as possible so I can try to feel my best for whenever he does decide to come. 😴
Can’t believe we’re officially at the end of this pregnancy and I’m going to be pushing this baby out so soon! 😬👶🏻
