Facebook reminded me that 3 years ago today I took a huge risk and decided to remove my hardware that had been inserted in my legs after my traumatic accident so many of you are aware of. While my recovery was long and extremely rough, by God's grace and strength he allowed me an incredible recovery although my body now had certain limitations and pains I'd continually have to fight through. Additional surgery was a risky move, but with my creaky, achy, painful and limiting joints, I decided it was worth the risk.

The middle picture is just 1 of 2 surgeries I underwent in order to hopefully continue my #fitnessjourney with less pain and limitations. I am happy to say, my decision has definitely paid off.

I usually try to ignore negative comments, but to those who see dedication to fitness as "selfish", when I see this it reminds me of everything I've been through over the years.
I remember everything from my accident, surgeries and multiple recoveries so vividly... I remember the feelings of helplessness and not knowing if I'd ever recover and the uncertainty of the future. Not having my physical outlet felt like I lost a part of me, so when I finally no longer had to rely on a wheelchair I never wanted to take this life and my health for granted. Hence, my dedication and countless accountability pictures I've taken for myself pre and post baby. I don't claim to be the best mom, but I love my sweet baby girl more than I can express - she's my first priority, but fitness is still important. If you call that "selfish", that's fine, but I'm going to continue doing my thing.

And a HUGE thanks once again to my sponsors @nutrition53 and @teamhmb and to my amazing fam, friends and followers for believing in me, supporting me and encouraging me... It means so much!!

38 weeks #pregnant ➡️ 14 weeks #postbaby
At #38weekspregnant, I was definitely wondering how the heck my body would ever bounce back lol. Then, after giving birth and having a 6 week recovery period I remember thinking this is going to take way longer than I expected. I lost baby weight but also lost muscle, and slowly but surely I'm starting to see #gains.

Of course all of our journeys differ significant and, and it requires a ton of patience and often a longer timeline than we'd like... but dedication to a fit lifestyle will eventually pay off. No matter where you're at in your own journey, never compare your unique journey to others and never give up. And most of all moms, enjoy your time with your amazing little one!! Fitness is important, but not as important as family 💕.
