Today’s post is sponsored by Beach House Swim but all opinions are my own.
Learning to love your mom bod after kids can be difficult. For me, it’s been a rollercoaster. I hated my body right after they were born but a few months into it, I was dropping weight like crazy. I breastfed both of my kids and the weight just seemed to melt right off. Some people may argue I was actually too skinny at one point but for me, there wasn’t a too skinny. I felt the best I had ever felt in my life and I loved it.
Fast forward to the end of breastfeeding and I was terrified of gaining the weight back. However I was also on medication that seemed to keep me fairly this too. I also got really into working out and eating healthy by counting my macros so life was good. I felt amazing and loved (for the most part) how I looked.
But over the past few weeks I’ve been super busy with the move, visitors, my intern, trips and well, life, that I haven’t been able to workout. And forget eating healthy too. It just hasn’t been in the cards for me. So I was really nervous about getting into my bathing suit even though I know that playing with my kids at the pool and beach is more important. Enter Beach House Swim with a solution!
This swimsuit is modest, comfortable, sporty, functional, and can even be a bit sexy 😉 But it makes me feel good about my body right now and lets me enjoy the special time at the pool with my kids. I love that the brand focuses on comfort and support and have a ton of different styles for active and busy moms.
Our bodies are going to change with seasons. Our metabolism is going to change with age. The best thing we can do is try and make the best decisions we can and give ourselves a break when times get rough. The kids and I have already made some amazing memories this summer and I don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.
