13 Oct Ep. 63- How I Tamed the Beast of Postpartum Anxiety- with Kimberley Roberson
http://preferredmode.com/2013/03/28/brittney/ Postpartum anxiety- and the cycle of destructive thoughts cripples a new mom. This episode is a look into my personal struggle with anxiety. I give a brief overview of how exercise helped me fight intrusive thoughts, dark days and loneliness. I share how exercise saved me from the dark-depressive/oppressiveness of postpartum depression and anxiety. And How weight-loss became a matter of less importance and more about creating some breathing room.
I am not a doctor and have no claim on the right answers, but this is what works for me. I share my weight loss journey and certain exercises I found to be helpful – especially during my darkest days and weeks. I find this topic to be so individualistic, but there may be something here you resonate with, and this is my hope. That you will find encouragement in camaraderie, and know no matter what season of motherhood you are in….. a good pair of walking shoes is always a good investment.
On Sunday Confession- I will share my favorite athletic attire, some embarrassing pregnancy moments and other tips and tricks regarding weight loss and wellness. Check Back on Sunday!
