You weren’t fibbing about becoming a parent

After a long old night…and day in hospital


My beautiful daughter, Ottilie, was born (a few weeks ago, now)


and WOW. What about that first day and night at home, ay?


I can’t say I wasn’t warned though


A screaming, crying baby


^^^ “we didn’t order this, did we?” 


Hilarious poo faces (which even after 2 days of no sleep made me laugh out loud…and still does now)


I went from changing her like she was as fragile as a butterfly…


To realising – after a watching the midwives – that you can be a little more rough and ready with them (‘she won’t break’)


I even Googled best positions to hold a baby to stop them crying

^^^ And found a great position by the way (cross their arms over the body, support the head, lift forward, support bum…worked a treat…for 3 minutes 😉


I had basically become the Dr. Googler 


And as much I felt this indescribable, unconditional love for her…


I couldn’t help but think how hard this is going to be


BUT…


Things improved. Every, single day


We’re learning her cues


Getting into more feeding routines


Bedtime routines (she loves a bath)


And now?


Packing nappies and wipes in my bag…(as well as my food ;-))


Having cuddles


Bathing


Is my new normal (and I love it)


And it’s no different in this weight loss game


When making changes


Or rather…


IMPROVEMENTS to your life


It’s hard


Scary


Different


It’s actually PAIN


To do what you’ve been putting off


Be it planning your meals ahead (something I get you doing straight away in my Female Fat Loss Mastery Programme) so you save time and money grocery shopping and know exactly what to eat and when to ditch the love handles


Or fitting in some exercise (even rounds of 5 minutes) into your already busy day to help you tone up


BUT here’s the thing:


Avoiding pain is also PAIN

^^^ Read that again


Avoiding the things you have to do to get what you want is pain


And once you get going


Start to see improvements 


Build momentum (as the clay gets a little warmer)


You might – dare I say it – start to enjoy it


^^^ As Female Fat Loss Mastery member, Julie, mentioned last week


And just like – all of a sudden-  being responsible for another human providing you with endless dirty nappies​, hilarious poo faces and lots of washing… is life changing


So is losing weight, having the knowledge to keep it off (without giving up your favourite foods), and feeling more confident about yourself when you’re wearing the clothes you want to wear.
