Őszinte fotókon mutatta meg a fitneszedző édesanya, hogy még a szülés után 9 hónappal sem a régi az alakja, pedig sokkal többet sportolt munkájából adódóan, mint az átlag emberek. Elege lett abból, hogy a média azt sugallja: azonnal lefogyhat az, aki gyermeket hozott a világra.
A 39 éves Neema Sempebwa 10 hónnapal ezelőtt hozta világra első gyermekét, Lanát. A londoni fitneszedző szerette volna megmutatni követőinek, hogy bizony neki sem tökéletes az alakja szülés után. Bár sokkal többet sportolt, mint egy átlagos ember, még a szülés után 9 hónnapal sem volt a régi formában.
9 MONTHS POST PARTUM (Swipe ➡️ for the video) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wow- today I feel overly emotional... I carried Lana for 9 months.. and now she has blessed this world for 9 months. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pic on the left was taken a few hours before Lana arrived. I was actually in the early stages of labour but thought I just had a tummy ache . It also happened to be my birthday that day too ☺️. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This journey is far from complete...it takes time and to be honest - I feel not much has changed in the body in the last couple of months - but I’m continuing with my weekly workouts and eating as healthy as possible too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I still carry my souvenir stretch marks and loose skin which I’m now at peace with. It took a while to get there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To any new mammas or mammas to be - listen to your body. The post partum body is just as delicate and precious as the pregnant body. Please don’t expect to just be able to do all that you did beforehand immediately after giving birth. Each woman is different - so ensure you work to the capabilities of YOUR body and not an Instagram body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The female body is simply magical ☺️ . . . #postpartum #fitmom #postpartumbody #love #baby #momlife #pregnancy #motherhood #motivation #weightloss #postpartumfitness #mom #workout #mumlife #fitfam #pregnant #fitmum #postpartumjourney #healthy #newmom #transformation #fitnessmotivation #healthylifestyle #fitnessjourney #postnatal #health #babygirl #fitmomsofig ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A The Sun cikke szerint Neema szeretné felhívni a figyelmet arra, hogy egy édesanyánál megváltozik a fontossági sorrend, és egyáltalán nem elvárható, hogy néhány héttel gyermekük világrahozatala után a régi fényükben pompázzanak. Éppen ezért fotókon dokumentálta saját testének változását.
When will I get back to my pre pregnancy body? ♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Probably never... but that’s not a bad or negative thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Does it mean I won’t be stronger? No Does it mean I won’t be fitter? No Does it mean I won’t ever feel good about myself? No ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It may seem from the above photos that I’m pretty much back to pre pregnancy body- well I’m not. I’m way softer and squidgy now- I’ve got a nice collection of stretchmarks and loose skin. Yes of course I have days when I yearn for stretch mark free skin and a wrinkle free tummy - I would be lying if I said otherwise. However- it’s not the most important thing to me. I just want to be strong and fit. I want to be able to run around after my munchkin in years to come and and lift her in my arms when she needs me to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Will a super flat tummy and visible abs make me a better person- a better mum? NO! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m grateful for this body every single day for the beautiful fact that it allowed me to carry and deliver the munchkin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m still going to exercise and get my strength back - I still want to be able to do the things in the gym that I used to love doing- but it’s not all about just how it makes me look. Exercise for me is as much for my mental wellbeing as it is for my physical wellbeing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had no idea how my body would change and respond to pregnancy and birth. But it has changed. I have changed too. It’s a natural progression. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m no longer chasing the person I was or the body I had. I want to strive to be a better version - mentally, emotional and physically. ☺️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In other news- I really need to do something different with my hair! ♀️ ♀️ . . . #postpartum #fitmom #postpartumbody #love #baby #momlife #pregnancy #motherhood #motivation #weightloss #postpartumfitness #mom #workout #mumlife #fitfam #pregnant #fitmum #postpartumjourney #healthy #newmom #transformation #fitnessmotivation #healthylifestyle #fitnessjourney #postnatal #health #babygirl #fitmomsofig
Let’s talk about post pregnancy ‘snap back’ shall we? I’m always hearing this term when it comes to the post pregnancy body ♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It doesn’t exist in my opinion. Your body will not snap back immediately, your core will not and your pelvic floor definitely won’t! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There is nothing wrong with that. It’s normal- it’s natural. How can a body that carried a human for up to 42 weeks, just ‘snap back?’ I feel there are too many unrealistic expectations on mums these days that are highly focused on how they look after having a baby. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Give yourself time... not a hard time. Being a new mum blew me away (and still does). I used to feel guilty for working out when Lana was awake as I felt I should be focused on her- and then I was too tired when she went to sleep. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had to listen to my body and allow it time and trust the process. I needed to constantly remind myself that the goal was not just to lose the weight I gained through the pregnancy- but also to look after my body now as much as I did when I was pregnant. Working on core and pelvic floor exercises was more of a priority. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reducing calories while breastfeeding was not the goal either- although I focused on trying to eat wholesome nutritious foods - but sometimes when my energy was zapped in those early days, I admittedly reached for high sugar foods too ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even at 8 months PP, my body has not snapped back - and that’s ok. My core is strong- my pelvic floor is strengthening day by day too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t worry about the ‘snap backs’ you may see out there - work on yourself- for yourself. Your pp body deserves TLC. Take inspiration from others - but don’t imitate them - as you are UNIQUE, as is your body. . . . #postpartum #postnatal #mum #motherhood #momlife #instamama #mama #body #lifestyle #health #baby #postpartumjourney #breastfeeding #postpartumbody #pregnancy #snapback #pelvicfloor #core #postnatalfitness #fitmom #fitmama #progress #transformation
That post partum tummy skin ☺️ . . It’s taken me to now really to accept and learn to love the fact that I may potentially always have loose skin around the tummy. . . When I stand straight- you can’t really tell..but it’s there ☺️ . . Knowing the reason for it (little munchkin) and knowing that I’m doing my best to exercise and maintain a healthy diet is all that matters to me. . . Do I still look at other PP mums and wonder if they too have the same tummy?? Ofcourse! But then I shift the focus back to me. . . Who knows if it will ever fully be how it was before Lana... but my goal now is just to get back to be fit and healthy. . . I turn the big 4-0 this year . Same day as Lana will turn 1 . I’m pretty damn proud of the way this body has handled the past 39 years. . . So big shout goes out to all mummy Tummy’s- whatever they look like or feel like. They are AMAZING!!. . . . #mummytummy #postpartum #stretchmarks #momlife #mom #postpartumbody #selflove #bodypostive #looseskin #fitness #fitmom #core #womensbody #fitmomsofig #babygirl
