How This Mom Managed to Get a Fit Body After Having 3 Kids in 4 Years
Over the last year or so, Kayla Itsines's Bikini Body Guide fitness program has been taking the internet by storm. Her own Instagram account features hundreds of before-and-after photos of her over 5 million followers, one of whom is Marissa Fearon, a 27-year-old mom who is using the program to find a balance between motherhood and fitness.
"I am a different person now than I was eight months ago. I am comfortable in my own skin, I am stronger, I am healthier, I am happier for my kids, I am embracing my imperfections and I had the courage to make some tough life changes," Fearon wrote in a post to Instagram accompanying a before-and-after photo of her body transformation. The mother of three frequently shares photos of her journey with her followers to prove that "it is more than possible to be fit after kids" and to feel ownership over the body that carried and nourished those children for so long.
"We can be so hard on ourselves sometimes. About our bodies. About our mothering. About all the different things that we are our own worst critics about. But knowing that we aren't alone in feeling that way is so encouraging!"
Look through for some of Fearon's most inspiring photos of her journey.
