I know I left you hanging 2 weeks ago after telling you I had heard that Week 4 was a doozy. The truth of the matter is…
IT IS A DOOZY!
You add in headlifts and another splint during the exercises and more repetitions and if you’re stamina was failing at all before, you will need a pep talk to push through.
But, here I am at Week 5…alive and well!
I have no new pictures to share with you because frankly, the size of my tummy has not changed dramatically enough to add another picture.
However, something HAS changed that is dramatic in its own right…
My diastasis, which was a 10+ finger-width gap at the beginning of all of this, is now an
8 finger width gap!
And my connective tissue is so much stronger that I can no longer sink my fingers into my belly!
Despite all of this, I am feeling worn down. I know it seems silly that I am seeing such great success and still feeling discouraged and tired, but I told you I would be honest here. And the honest truth is I have to tell myself every single day WHY I am doing this.
That is why I am starting a Diastasis Recti Support Forum in my Blog Frog community. If you are taking this journey with me or if you are thinking about it and want to see and hear from others who are in the trenches, this is a great place to come and give and receive encouragement. So, I hope you’ll join me there!
