A scary hospital stint :/

I haven’t been able to write these past few days as I’m still recuperating, most emotionally, from a big scare. I spent 5 days in the hospital, 3 of them in ICU, getting treated for a kidney infection (pyelonephritis). Things got very complicated, I got to get a stent procedure, and many blood tests and X-rays later we discovered that it had not spread anywhere. Our baby boy is healthy and safe, thank God, and I just pray that there are no more bad surprises. 

My workout routine will be on hold for a bit. I may workout occasionally until I feel a bit more confident and less uncomfortable. 

I hope all mamas are doing well and staying healthy. I’m now learning how sensitive  pregnant women are to UTIs, which sound like not such a big deal, but like in my case can get so complicated. After what I went through, I will need some time to get “emotionally fit” again- but I’ll get there, because thinking of this little guy makes me want to keep being strong in every way!

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!
