Fabulous Mami Friday - Tummy *Update*



Yeah! Welcome to my new weekly series! I am so excited because this is actually a "secret" resolution for the year, not just for me, but for my husband. I, myself, DO NOT feel like the most beautiful woman/wife/mother. But it's hard to believe when you don't believe it yourself.

So in this "series" each week I will focus on one part of the body/feature and share what I think about it, how I can make myself feel better about it, do something about it by posting how-to's or tutorials, my favorite fashion pin from Pinterest that week. Follow "My Style" on Pinterest if you're a big girl.

I hope ya'll enjoy it and share your insecurities or what you love about your body as well. If you're interested, check out this artile I read on Glamor.com

Week 3: Tummy
*Update* Read/watch this FIRST
Will I be wearing this?

These past few weeks have been a bit nerve wracking. Since having Annaleah my cycle has been trying to find it's way. I got my period 9 weeks after she was born. And since then my cycle was late the next month. Then in December and January it was off by just one day. But then I was spotting in the middle of the month. I thought to myself that was odd. I didn't think anything of it, but then thought.... was if it was implantation bleeding? OMG, I freaked out. Then that's when I did Mama Kat's Vlogging Prompt on the last thing I bought... it was the last thing I bought. And we had decided that I would not take the test until the 15th because that would be about 10 DPO. Anywho....

BUT! I did NOT have to take the test. I got my period a few days ago, right on schedule with the past few months. We figured that it was either stress or the exercising that I had just started in January (read about it HERE). Hubby had also just started school, it was the first time I was home and in charge of Eliada and Annaleah (3 & 6 months) and had to go pick up my oldest from school as well as have dinner ready before hubby got home and keep the house "liveable". Oh okay, looking back, I guess that might have been the main culprit. 

So, now that we got that out of the way.... NOT PREGNANT.... let's get back to the topic. Tummy time! Mommies and their tummy, it's a constant struggle if you are overweight or not, am I right?! Is there ever a time we are fully satisfied with how it looks/feels? There was a time I was. I was 19 and was going to college and met my husband. I loved to wear this jean skirt all the time, cus you could see my flat tummy. I use to love to feel my hip bones, lol. That's the one thing I feel for when I feel fatter than normal, lol. Weird, right?
But hopefully by the end of the summer I'm a bit more happy with my mid-section.

Not Happy:

I didn't take many postpartum tummy shots but, I'll spare you the horror. I'm not happy with the pooch area, like most women are. But since I was not very active before pregnancy nor after having each of my babies, the pooch has been there since 2004. I just hate thinking that it might never go away, which I am fine with. I hate "litfing" it. I think it's the grossest thing ever! And hubby always tells me, it's my body, I should be happy with it!

Inspiration:

Right now.... the drive is that hubby said he would reopen a credit card to one of my favorite stores if I am serious about losing the weight so I can start to buy a new wardrobe! Not to mention that he also insists that I am going to wear a bikini this summer! OMG! He is NOT a BEACH person, but I love the beach! He says that if I am confident enough to wear a bikini that he would have a reason to take me to the beach. 

Also, I want to babywear more in public. I have been pulling my pocket sling more than the others because she now sits and pushes down my pooch and it's clearly visible! I am so self-conscious about it.

Question of the Week:  How do you HIDE your pooch area?

Also.... which bathing suit would look best on me? I am horrible at this kind of stuff.

  1. It sounds like your Husband is really helping to give you motovation. I had a beautifully flat stomach before giving birth to my first born. I went from 120lbs to 190lbs and, needless to say, got BAD strech marks and loose skin. Nothing short of a tummy tuck will fix it. Ive lost all the weight but, the skin still hangs there and the strech marks are there. Ill never be in a bikini again :{

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
