I couldn’t feel more proud to not only be apart of this campaign...but this MOVEMENT with @summersalt and all these beautiful women. This was the first time ever in my life I didn’t “prep” for a swimsuit shoot. When I was working as a full time model, I wouldn’t dare show up to a bikini shoot without at least a week of cutting back calories, depriving myself and working out for hours on end to trim down my thighs. It makes me so sad to even share those words because that was truly my norm for years. This was the first time I showed up as me. Exactly as I am without judging myself at all and feeling quite comfortable in my own damn skin. It feels so good to say that because it’s taken so much work to get to this point. Brands like Summersalt are paving the way for women to Love and Accept themselves exactly the way they are. That is something I want to be apart of. Because...Every Body, is a beach body. 🙌🏼 @reshmachamberlin You must feel so freaking proud. ❤️ #bikini#body#women#womenempowerment#womensupportingwomen
Flow interrupted (the true definition of motherhood)...seconds before he shoved his tongue down my throat. 😳🤣 Little boys and their mamas tho! I’m headed to film a new workout this am. What do you guys want to see more of? I’m thinking a 30min yoga flow with a side of pilates (using your own body weight), but I’ll decide with what’s most requested in comments below. 🙌🏼 #motherhood#momlife#athomeworkouts#fitmom#longleanlines#mwhmethod melissawoodhealth.com
You all know how much I love me some greens. On days I’m not home to make my own green juice and running around all day I throw @evolutionfresh organic green devotion (no fruit for mid-day for me) blend in my bag. These juices are all cold-pressed with no added colors or flavors and you can get them at most local grocery stores (and Starbucks). Does getting your daily dose of greens make anyone else this happy? 😁💁🏻♀️💚 #ad#evolvetheday#greenjuice#plantbased
These were my last sweet moments breastfeeding my Elanor. It’s taken me a few weeks to fully accept the fact that I’m no longer nursing my baby (and to honestly be ok sharing this). I had this idea that lived in my mind of what “I thought” was the perfect plan around how long I would breastfeed. Well...things didn’t go as “planned”. Every ounce of my body was depleted. Taking care of my family, running after my toddler, waking up all hours of the night with my baby and running my business started to wear on me. I got insanely sick and I knew it was my body telling me to surrender. The second I fully let go, I swear I could breathe again. In all honesty, I feel happier and more present in everything I’m doing since letting go of the perfect picture I painted. This experience brought me back to my birth with Benjamin and all the “shoulds” I had to release to embrace the lesson in having a caesarean and all it taught me. I was so in fear of losing the connection I felt with her when she was attached to my breast, but I truthfully feel even more connected to her now that I honored what was best for me, my body and my family. It goes without saying that I will miss this chapter, my heart will forever hold on so tight to these precious memories I cherished so much. But...I’m in such a better place and I feel like ME again. And I truly believe there is no better Mom than a happy Mom. 🙌🏼 Has anyone else has the hardest time letting go of this because in the back of your mind you question if it’s your last time? 😢 #breastfeeding#nursing#momlife#motherhood#normalizebreastfeeding
New planking sock series with a side of yoga now live. I love the blend of powerful planks with a mix of yoga, it’s a perfect yin and yang flow. Don’t let the “low impact” part of my workouts fool you. Low impact but still intense and crazy effective. Link in bio to sign up for my 5 day free trial. 💪🏼 #longleanlines#mwhmethod#athomeworkouts melissawoodhealth.com wearing @varley and @boodywear socks (the fluffiest sock FYI).
There is nothing in this world that has brought more fulfillment into my life than being the mother of these two beautiful babies. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas who love with their whole hearts. - Keep scrolling... the last video is an honest reaction to my husbands gift of Mother’s Day mugs. Thank you? @noahtepperberg 🤣😭 jkjjjk it was too good and real not to share. #mothersday#momlife#motherhood

Took a break from the day to enjoy a pilates reformer class @aveapilates (fave new spot) and a non toxic mani at my go-to sundays_studio with my team @dylrudolph@katelyn_hissong. It’s so easy to get caught up in all “work”, but what I find equally as important as a boss is taking time to enjoy the little things along the way.
