She is very beautiful.
Like most of us our holiday is cancelled this year. Usually I’d be gutted but given the circumstances it’s the least of our worries and way down the bottom of my ladder of priorities right now. We’re fortunate enough to have the memories of holidays past and lucky enough to look forward to the next one. Greece 2021 it is! 🏝 ☀️
This weekend I was supposed to be doing a Q & A for the @womenshealthuk live event. The events no longer going ahead however my Q & A will be! I’ll be on the Women’s Health Facebook live with the team this Sunday at 1.30pm answering all questions on my health & fitness, being a mum and starting my training again post C Section 💪🏼❤️ See you there!
Whilst being stuck at home we may as well try and win some tech prizes right?! To celebrate Vodafone they have launched the #FindUnlimited Game for you to play at home. You can register at findunlimited.co.uk to get started. Also, keep an eye on my stories this week to get your hands on some Samsung prizes including the new Samsung S20 Ultra 5G! #ad @vodafoneuk
I was really looking forward to meeting some of you at the Woman’s Health Live event in April, but in the interests of everyone’s safety and health being the main concern for us all @womenshealthuk have made the decision (Which I believe to be the right one) to cancel the event. For info on refunds head to their page. Looking forward to seeing you all there next year! 🙌🏼
My face when I’m accused of “faking pics” because you can’t see my C section scar or stretch marks. Seriously. 🤦🏼♀️ On my latest post in my shoot for WH (Which I love btw!) a lot of people have DM’d me or commented on articles and my page that my pics must be airbrushed because my scar or stretch marks aren’t visible. Now I’m no expert but I’m assuming C sections are dependant on a lot of things. The size & position of your baby & your surgeon being a few of them. Mia was under 5lb. Tiny! She was low down & engaged but couldn’t be pushed out so she was cut out instead 🤷🏼♀️ My scar is around 8cm long and low down below my knicker line. For me to show it on pictures id quite frankly be showing you the top of my vagina! 😂 Now onto stretch marks. I didn’t get any on my tummy. I got a few faint white ones on the top of my bum cheeks but I had some there before Mia. I think I actually got them in high school… Again, I’m no expert but I’m told regardless of lotions & potions they come down to the elasticity in our skin and how quickly our bumps grow. My mum didn’t get any on her tummy & neither did my sister so maybe genetics play a role too. Who knows 🤷🏼♀️ Should woman who have them be made to feel bad and apologise? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Should woman who didn’t get them be made to feel guilty & apologise? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Motherhood is physically different for every single female body and we are all in our own way just trying to deal with it. My one wish, especially now being a role model for Mia, is for us to all feel secure in our own bodies, because life’s too short and we all deserve to be happy. Unfortunately I don’t know what the answer is to making that happen. What I do know, is that looking for “flaws” or trying to bring others down won’t make you feel any better. There’s enough room for us all to shine & be our best selves! I was going to post a pic of my scar as proof it’s actually there, but then I thought, No. The negative people aren’t getting that. My scar is for me, Gorks and Mia. Our imperfect reminder of how lucky we are to have our family 👨👩👦❤️
Cannot wait to do the @womenshealthuk live again this year! I’ll be there answering all your questions on the main stage about wellness, training and motherhood and this time I’m bringing @gorka_marquez along with me to put you through your paces in the sweat studio with our workout 🏋🏼♀️ If you fancy joining us it’s at Business Design Centre, London, on 3rd-5th April. For discount on tickets use my code GEMMA10 #WHLive 💁🏼♀️💪🏼
