Part of my family and I are currently on vacation in Punta Cana, DR. We’re here celebrating my uncle’s 60th birthday and had a really nice, surprise dinner- including a mariachi band- for him last night. It also worked out perfectly as a babymoon for Frank and I! I’m 17 weeks and feeling the belly although I may not be showing that much still.

On Wednesday, I did the following workout with Frank and my cousin Patricia:

5 minute warmup run on the treadmill.

Then 3 rounds of:

10 thrusters

15 push-ups

10 pullups

On Thursday, I counted all the walking around we did- to breakfast, to the pool, etc as part of our workout. Any little bit counts! I also got Patricia, her boyfriend and Frank to do the water aerobics class they offer on a daily basis. I’m telling you, I was feeling it in my arms! And it was super fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Today, we didn’t have much time in the morning so we just did a quick 3 rounds of:

20 sit-ups (v-ups on a bench), 20 push-ups and 20 air squats. I had to drop down to my knees for the push-ups as I’m starting to feel a little awkward tightness in my abdomen.

It’s beautiful here at the Hard Rock resort so I’m welcoming any opportunity to walk around. I’ll post again soon with more photos!

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!
