Musclebound Mama

Musclebound Mama Fat Loss & Wellness Coach My name is Sophie and I am the founder of Musclebound Mama. Musclebound Mama is very much a labour of love for me. Once upon a time I was an insecure, overweight mama with no self-esteem and poor self-worth who was desperate for change.

I’d tried every fad-diet in the industry and failed every time. I was defeated. It all started with a Twitter account where I called myself @muscleboundmama and immersed myself in the industry of fat loss and wellness as a consumer and learned first hand what worked and what didn’t. Over several years of trial, error, tragedy and finally, healing, and education – I succeeded. I found my inner powe

Do you ever get stuck and end up dropping your goal? Success is not an easy path.

Human brains are complex and we have this amazing capacity to over complicate things.

When we can SEE AND BELIEVE our goals they are obtainable. It allows is to be present for the discomfort and put our belief in ourselves above our doubts because we are making small conscious choices.

Are these doable for you?

Being an entrepreneur means constantly learning. Being a parent during lockdown also means doing so creatively. I'm currently locked in my bedroom participating in an online conference.

Shhhh, don't tell my kids.

If you've been a MBM client in the past 2 years you'll know that the business have changed significantly since our early years.

Many of you know that MBM was an accidental endeavour. I just wanted to help people lose weight and was really good at it so it became the side hustle that helped me gain traction as a single mama.

Over the years the business shifted. My clients taught me what they needed and showed me that sustainable success lies in our relationship with ourselves. Nothing changes without exploring WHY we make the choices we do. Changing our body composition alone changes NOTHING.

So, this new endeavour felt like a natural step for MBM.

I have so many exciting ideas for how MBM is going to evolve and this is part of the equation. I am so grateful to my clients, past, present and future - for helping me grow as a person and bringing me exactly where I was always supposed to be.

I am so excited to grow with you 💗

Before society told women they were not enough (so, the beginning of time), we loved food. We connected through food.

Like many of you, I'm celebrating With Easter with my family with delicious food. Currently cooking is a ham, scalloped potatoes, braised cabbage, French beans, and this... Love itself: bannock - or, ba'wezhiganag.

It's love because it's a staple for my people and making it reminds me of very simple times.

Today, where the world wants us to say no to foods that make us happy (chocolate, desserts) tell me what your love food is.

Take a deep breath.

Right now.

Isn't that amazing?

It sounds crazy but I had to learn to breathe again recently. As someone living with MDD and C-PTSD, my breathing took place in my chest. Breath in one's chest is shallow and prevents the ribs from expanding. This caused incredible muscle tension over the years to the point where I had debilitating migraines.

I learned diaphragmatic breathing and everything changed. One of the ways I retrained myself to breathe was setting a timer on my phone so every hour, no matter what I was doing, I would take 5 big belly breaths.

As a mama it's hard to prioritize our own self care and we are taught to believe that self care is pedicures and a weekend away. It isn't. I mean, those things are great and you should do them but breathing is a lot easier to prioritize!

Do it. Then, tell me about it. ❤️

Can we be real for a minute?

I spent the majority of my life not fitting in.

I felt constantly at odds with what the world wanted from me. What MY world wanted from me.

Women of my generation were raised to:

Be quiet and ask for nothing. Be humble and a little self deprecating to ensure others felt good about themselves.

Be good at things but if you're better than a boy, pretend you don't notice and call it luck instead of skill.

Don't need anything. Be happy with what comes your way - from recognition to or***ms: just be grateful for what you're allowed.

Try really hard to be pretty but don't be confident or self-assured. It's not for you, after all.

I was never good at any of this. I understood it but I felt gross about all of it. As a result, I felt disconnected from everyone in my world - including myself.

I was in my 30s when I finally understood what strength meant. I will remember for the rest of my life the moment I stood up and said "Actually, no. This is not enough for me. I am more than this".

Since that moment I walked through the world differently. I choose to lead rather than follow.

I recently ordered a bag full of shirts from @thesparkdotcompany that reflected exactly who I am and who I am proud to have become. This is one of them.

Being strong, being a woman, and being a leader are things my generation of women were not allowed to be. That misogynistic message is still in play in 20-f**king-21 and I'm over it.

I'm over the men who are uncomfortable with our voices and I'm over the women who placate the men who are uncomfortable with our voices.

Be YOU and don't you dare apologize. The next generation is depending on you. ❤️

Tell me about the last time you had a moment where your body was NOT on your mind. A moment where you were living and not judging or hiding.

This was my most recent. We took the kids to Perth and explored. I watched my kids play, explore, learn and BE. They moved their bodies and what those bodies looked like was NOT on their mind. Only what they could do.

Kids are our best teachers.

If it's been a while, do you think you could find a moment like this today?

Well, this is exciting! Have you noticed that it's GORGEOUS outside?!

I don't know about you but this is the time of year where I am ready to rock CHANGE. I organize, I clean, and I start planning my summer.

This is our second summer impacted by covid-19. Our lockdowns vary depending on our location but we're still in that limbo of "I want to cope with food" and "I want to regain control".

Where are you?

If you're ready to regain control of your relationship with food - we've got you, mama!
