Beach body….

Beach body….

On the beach with my boys and we see some gorgeous, thin, tanned, thong wearing beauties! I looked at them well aware that my body was no longer a pre-pregnancy size 10! Instead I was a bit thicker, a wobbly tummy and had big veiny boobs.

Then I looked at my boys playing in the sun and thought, what the hell am I doing! I have the most amazing life. Yes my body isn’t what it was and it may never be again. But who gives a f#*k. This wobbly tummy housed my amazing son and my boobs are still providing him milk. So sod it, I’m going to ditch my skin covering tankinis and get myself a pretty bikini!

My body may not be perfect compared to the beauties on the beach, but right now it is perfect for the three most important people…my husband, my son and me.

I just need to keep reminding myself of this!!! Then when I get home and back to reality in a few months I can think again about losing it! Now is for enjoying family time and maybe a cocktail or two!

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

    So very true! Perfect is very difficult to define but I think how you feel and the love your husband and baby have for you says it all. Xx

    I’ve never worn a bikini in my life so I don’t think now is the time to start but I completely agree. My body might be a bit flabby and covered in lines (of the stretchmark and wrinkle variety) but it made two awesome kids and for that I’m grateful! #KCACOLS

    Good for you! You look amazing for the record, but I agree to feeling the same when we are away. I was very lucky to keep my figure before, during and after each of my pregnancies (weirdo that I am didn’t even get a bump!), but it just feels different to me, and my boobs will never be the same again! #KCACOLS

      Haha, boobs have definitely taken on a new life of their own since getting pregnant! Thank you very much though, I will get my figure back one day….maybe!! Xx

    I get myself trapped in this cycle too – I look at others and think ahhh imagine if I had a toned beach body. Then I remember that I’m happy, healthy and I gave birth not long ago! Love this post! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday xx

      It’s a cycle I’m fighting hard to break. But it’s not easy, think as mothers we are far too hard on ourselves. And I’ve enjoyed a cocktail today which is never going to help the beach body!! Xx

    Down with tankini’s! We worked flipping hard growing our babies so if we want to wear a bikini I think we deserve to 🙂 as long as your happy in it who cares what anyone else thinks and or looks like in theirs, we’re all different!
    Now all I need to do is take my own advice…:)

      I was out in my bikini today! Felt a little self conscious to start with, but soon loved it! Thanks xx

        *High five* they’re so much comfort than swimsuits or tankini’s….all that wet clingy fabric…not a fan! xx

          And what was amazing that I really didn’t care what anyne else thought! Strange for me, maybe I’m getting there with body confidence!! Xx

    I love this so much, and I love your self confidence! I saw a quote the other day that said “How can you ever say anything negative about your body after you have felt the dancing of life from inside your womb?”
    Like, how wonderful is that? We GREW humans. That’s amazing. Rock on <3 #KCACOLS

      That’s so true isn’t it! It is amazing what our bodies have gone through so I am trying to give mine a break!!! X
