Yesterday we climbed both Vicuna and Guanaco Peaks. Super fun scramble up Vicuna - we used the fixed rope on the class 4 section - thanks to whoever installed it. Easy ascent up Guanaco. I veto’ed our original plans to do a more exposed traverse elsewhere.. to be honest, I didn’t feel like having another climb consumed by fear and anxiety. @jfred211 and @benibutca supported my decision and we got up these two peaks instead 🙌🏻Смотреть полностью
This took me a serious hot minute to figure out when babe first arrived. I've mentioned before that our culture is quick to tell new Mama's they will never have time for themselves. Well! I beg to differ 🙌
My self-care game as a Mom has come a long way but I can tell you one thing - start small. When my baby was just 2 weeks old I started doing small things for myself - having a bath, giving myself a facial in the morning & playing a lot of music. By starting small I didn't overwhelm myself which was great.
As I grew more confident in my Mom role I started heading to yoga more often BY MYSELF! This was a huge deal for me. Giving myself 75 mins of undivided attention changed my game.
I really owe my self-care game to locally owned businesses & locally produced products!
@kpurenaturals has been a huge part of my journey. This organic body & skincare line has products for both Mom & babes. I love that my Washed Up Unscented Foaming Wash doubles as face wash for me & body wash for babe. Other products from @kpurenaturals I recommend are - Clean Up Dead Sea Mud Masque, Drenched Whipped Face & Body Butter, Good Morning Spray, Lighten Up Skin Brightening Serum & Recover Bath Soak. 😻
@modoyogananaimo is my go to place for my new Mama yoga journey 🙏 I love the friendly atmosphere but also the heat!! Ugh I missed the heat while I was pregnant. As a nursing mama, I also let the teachers know I don't prefer to do any poses on my stomach. They are great for helping me find other poses during the stomach portion of the class. 🧘♀️
Yesterday’s hike was the most challenging one I’ve done yet, but totally worth it! we may not have made it to the actual Pup Creek Falls, but we found a pretty little waterfall all on our own!Смотреть полностью
One of these years, I’ll have a Hot Girl Summer, but in the meantime it’s more like a Cold Girl Wrapped In A Sweater, Shivering In An Overly Air Conditioned Office kind of season 🥶 PC: @sendybrendy_Смотреть полностью
