Emily Skye is working hard at getting back to her pre-pregnancy fitness level — but if it doesn’t happen, she’s not going to “beat myself up about it,” the influencer said.

Skye, 35, welcomed her second child, son Izaac, in a very unexpected home birth on June 18. Once she recovered enough to start exercising again, the trainer has been working on rebuilding her fitness, but noticed that it’s been slow going this time around compared to her pregnancy with daughter Mia, 2½.

“My journey to getting my fitness back seems to be a lot slower than it was after having Mia. I am a lot busier now though with my businesses and kids and fitting in my training is more challenging,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a video of herself in a bikini.

“I’m not gonna let it get me down though — we all know comparison can be the thief of joy and it can even be detrimental to compare to your previous self! We’re always changing and our bodies go through SO much during pregnancy and after!”

Skye instead focuses on how she feels mentally and physically, and “what my body DOES rather than how it ‘looks.’ ”

“That’s not to say I don’t have fitness goals though and that I’m not doing everything in my power to reach those goals, but it’s about controlling what you have the ability to control,” she explained. “If I can’t then I don’t beat myself up about it. There’s just no point! 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m doing the best I can and that’s good enough.”

Skye, who lives in Queensland, Australia with Izaac, Mia and her partner, Declan, said that while she isn’t losing weight and building muscle at the same speed as her last pregnancy, she’s doing far better mentally. After Mia was born, Skye dealt with postpartum depression, but hasn’t experienced it so far.

“I’m in a far better headspace this time. It’s flat out and stressful and Izaac is a much more difficult baby than Mia was but I’m grateful I haven’t (yet) experienced postnatal depression like I did after having Mia. 🙏🏼 ”

Skye also urged her followers to “please never be ashamed of suffering from mental health issues” like postpartum depression, and to reach out if they need help.

“It’s more common than we think and you are not alone,” she said.

Skye previously told PEOPLE that her more-positive mindset is something she developed from getting older.

“I feel like I’m just getting better and better with self-love and acceptance,” she said. “It

Dmitriy “Dima” Stuzhuk, who had more than 1.1 million followers on Instagram, began feeling sick during a recent trip to Turkey and was immediately hospitalized after returning to Ukraine, he said in a post Wednesday.

The 33-year-old social media star returned home after several days, but he had to be rushed back to the hospital last week after his condition quickly deteriorated. The virus apparently caused irreversible heart complications and Stuzhuk did not resist.

“Dima is no longer with us. His heart could not stand,” his ex-wife, Sofia Stuzhuk, wrote Friday on Instagram.

Her former partner’s last social media post was a pair of selfies he took before leaving the hospital last week. He acknowledged at the time that COVID-19 is not a hoax, as he had incorrectly told his followers.

“I want to share how I got sick and strongly warn everyone: I also thought that there was no covid… Until I got sick,” he wrote in Russian.

Sofia Stuzhuk later shared a touching tribute to her ex-husband, describing him as a a loving and supportive partner.

“We were no longer together, but it hurts me no less. I’m so sorry I’m very sorry. Thank you for everything,” she wrote. “You are our guardian angel and your love will always protect our angels.”

Dmitriy Stuzhuk is one of more than 5,800 Ukrainians who have died from COVID-19 since the virus began spreading across the world less than a year ago. The pneumonia-like illness has also sickened over 300,000 people in the country so far.

Coronavirus-denying fitness influencer dies from COVID-19

A Ukrainian fitness influencer with 1.1 million followers on Instagram has died of the coronavirus – after previously doubting the existence of the deadly bug, according to reports.

Dmitriy Stuzhuk, a buff 33-year-old who promoted healthy living, notified his fans of his diagnosis from his hospital bed, saying he woke up with breathing difficulties during a trip to Turkey and developed a cough the following day, the Sun reported.

He was tested after returning to Ukraine and was diagnosed with the illness.

“I was one who thought that COVID does not exist… until I got sick,” Stuzhuk wrote on Instagram. “COVID-19 IS NOT A SHORT-LIVED DISEASE! And it is heavy.”

He added that his condition was “stable.”

“The hospital is completely filled with people, some of them being treated in corridors,” wrote Stuzhuk, who was allowed to leave the hospital after eight days but was rushed back soon after.

His ex-wife Sofia Stuzhuk, 25, the mother of his three kids, later announced that he was in “grave condition” and unconscious, according to the news outlet.

“Dima (Dmitriy) had problems with his cardiovascular system… His heart is not coping,” she wrote on Instagram, where she has 5 million followers.

“His state is extremely grave. No one can do anything with this. I did everything I could so the father of my three children lives. But nothing depends on me now,” she added before announcing his death.

The couple — whose youngest child is just 9 months old — broke up six months ago amid “constant betrayal, cursing, showdown and stress” but recently said they were back on good terms.

“Only warm memories remain, three beautiful kids and valuable experience,” Sofia wrote. “God, it is so terrible to realize that he is not with us anymore…”

Но эти отношения дали так много нам Мы столько всего с тобой прожили и пережили. Ты был рядом и в горе и в радости. Ты научил меня столькому многому. Я на всю жизнь останусь тебе благодарна за наших троих прекрасных детей За весь бесценный опыт И за то, кем я с тобой стала Ты встретил меня совсем юной. Обычной 19летней девчонкой, студенткой 2го курса. Полюбил меня, как умел. Забрал к себе и заботился так, как умел. Ты дал так много мне уроков. Я с тобой выросла. Я с тобой стала мамой троих прекрасных деток и даже одного небесного. Я с тобой научилась принимать важные решения. Я с тобой научилась быть взрослой и независимой. Я с тобой стала самодостаточной. Я с тобой нашла свои травмы и боли. Я нашла над чем работать. Я нашла точки роста. Я трансформировалась сумасшедше. Я стала Софией Стужук.

Мы с тобой прожили самый прекрасный опыт на свете рождения наших детей. И твоя поддержка была бесценна. Да, ты никогда не дружил с камерой и сам мне об этом говорил. Но в жизни ты всегда направлял меня и часто давал мне нужные и мудрые советы За нашими плечами остались 6 лет полных событий. Десятки путешествий, куча эмоций. Господи, как же мне горько, что ты не прислушивался ко мне по поводу здоровья Но мы всегда уважали выборы друг друга❤️ Мы уже больше не были вместе, но от этого мне больно не меньше. Мне так жаль Мне очень жаль Благодарю тебе за всё, важный мой человек, мой главный учитель, мой проводник, отец моих деток❤️ Ты наш ангел-хранитель и твоя любовь всегда будет оберегать наших ангелочков❤️ Как же больно осознавать Светлая тебе память, Дима Стужук
