College Britt! Happy and loving herself! I liked to go to the gym with friends who taught me how to lift. When Darian and I got married, we liked to workout together as a hobby!
Stayed active and ran Spartan races with friends! Again I didn't really care about what I looked like, just wanted to have fun and be strong!
This is when Darian and I went to the gym for fun! I knew how to cook because of my mom, so I'd cook sometimes but also ate out a lot, ate whatever, and didn't care! We were happy, chillin', and I felt so cool lifting with all the boys!
In 2018 I really wanted to see some results! I found Gymshark, became a certified personal trainer, and focused on nutrition! I quickly learned that NUTRITION IS THE KEY TO SEEING RESULTS!!!
I worked out 5x a week, ate nutrient dense foods, and was so freaking happy with my results! Still stayed super strong and was THRIVING!!!
Darian and I decided to start a family and I got pregnant with Vinny! I still tried to workout 3x a week (push, pull, legs), and focused on eating veggies, fruits, proteins, and fats to keep me and Vinny healthy! It was super important to me to have a healthy pregnancy!
Had our son and knew I was about to start this journey all over again! Except this time I know how and what do since I already had done a transformation before.
I gave myself a lot of grace the first 10 months post-partum. It took me that long to grow Vinny, so I gave myself that much time to feel okay without the pressure to "bounce back". I won't lie, this was a really hard time in my life with becoming a new mom, not feeling like myself, and struggling mentally really bad.
While gym's were closed, I worked out 2-3x a week and went for runs outside. Once gyms opened back up, I started going with a friend who kept me accountable - which was HUGE for me! I remember yawning through workouts, craving oatmeal, just wanting to eat and sleep. But I stuck with it!!!
Slowly, I started to feel more confident, a little bit better, but truthfully it took over 9 months for me to feel this way!
We moved to California and for the first time in a YEAR I felt like me again! I felt like I was strong enough to keep going, and these were some of the best months of our lives! Since I felt better mentally, I was able to push myself harder in the gym. My core felt stronger and I could lift more and more! I was working out closer to 4x a week.
Then we moved again and it was TOUGH getting adjusted to a new gym. I had SO MUCH gym anxiety, but still tried to remain consistent. The whole time I gave what I had, and I felt like I was in a good place almost 2 years post-partum.
After weight loss and recovery for my core and mental health, I decided to do a mini bulk and add muscle mass back to my physique. I LOVE lifting strong and heavy and finally felt capable to do so, mentally and physically!
And now we're finally an official MF muscle mommy!!! The moral of my story: keep showing up! Your hard work IS working even on the days that you don't feel like it is. Your effort and struggle is going to pay off in the long term!
