The MyPostBabyBody.Org Manifesto in the Key of E-40’s “Choices”

As women we are complex. The way we feel about our bodies is complex. For that reason I try to organize this blog in a way that brings those complexities to the surface. It is simply about loving one’s amazing child producing body in all of it’s glory. With that comes a lot of contradictions because life isn’t this or that but is dynamically shifting here and there. So is this blog all about fitness? Nope! Might talk about fitness sometimes? Yup! Is it simple? Nope! You know what, instead of writing all these questions out, enjoy this musical rendition of what MyPostBabyBody.Org is all about (and know that we are also sometimes the opposite of everything stated as well 😉 )!
