Season 2 Episode 20: Motherhood: Putting Yourself First

Have you ever reached a point, through your motherhood journey, where you felt like something needed to change in order for you to be happy?

Perhaps you felt as though your needs were somehow lost in the mix while you were putting everyone else’s needs ahead of your own. Who looks out for mom when she’s taking care of everyone else?

But what if I told you the change you need in order to reach happiness comes from within?

This episode’s guest is on a mission to encourage women, especially mothers, to prioritize themselves and choose to set time aside to do what makes them happy, outside of motherhood.

In this episode I sit down with Katie to discuss her journey through motherhood including learning to love her body and putting herself first.

Katie is a working Mom of three, a self-love advocate, a true believer in the mental and physical benefits of exercise, and she’s on a personal mission to encourage women (especially Moms!) to put themselves on the top of their priority lists.

During her second postpartum season, Katie – craving connection, and determined to develop self love and confidence – began sharing her life publicly on Instagram. What began as an accountability page for her postpartum fitness journey, grew into an authentic, vulnerable, and relatable journal of self acceptance, body respect, and the highs and lows of motherhood.

In this episode, we discuss the following:

  • Learning to care for ourselves as mothers
  • Katie’s a-ha moment of realizing she had to prioritize herself, as no one else could do this for her
  • Shifting out of goal focused body confidence to body positivity
  • Waiting for motivation or time to show up (when it never really does)
  • Showing up authentically with others
