An exciting time in my life…

Just a few days ago, I shared on social media that…I’m going to be a mommy at the end of the year! The outpouring of love and well-wishes has been incredible. 6 months is going to go by super fast! My due date is December 27th, so it could very well be a Christmas bebe that we get.

Over the next few months I’ll be sharing how I modify my workouts. The first trimester was definitely rough- I was tired a lotttt, so I didn’t work out as much.  Now at 14 weeks, I have a little more energy, so I’m really trying to workout about 4 times a week. Unfortunately I haven’t been running as much, and I’m starting to really miss it! It’s just been tough because I get really thirsty and then I have to pee; it’s a vicious cycle. I’m sure other mama-to-bes can relate!

As of now, I’ve just reduced my intensity in all my WODs, making sure I’m getting sufficient rest and drinking water throughout the workouts. I’ve also stopped doing sit-ups and handstand push-ups and keep my weights lighter. I’m starting to wonder if I should stop doing kipping pull-ups- would it pull on my belly too much? The main point of exercising right now is to stay healthy and strong to be ready for the most important event in my life, which is to bring a little human into the world 🙂

Hi! My name is Julia and I'm a 30-something year-old Paraguayan-born, New Jersey toddler mom. My passion for fitness started when I was 15 years old and joined my local YMCA to learn how to properly strength train. Although I briefly joined my high school track team my junior year in high school, I consider myself a late-bloomer as an athlete. I'm a CrossFit Level 1 coach who first discovered CrossFit with a personal trainer 3 years ago and have been loving it ever since. My other passion is running! To date, I've completed 10 half-marathons and 2 marathons, including Philadelphia and New York. Combining endurance running and CrossFit WODs has helped me obtain PRs as well as age group awards over the past 2 years. I hope to inspire and motivate other mere mortals like myself in leading active, healthy lifestyles!
