Putting Away The Figure Competition Suit and Pulling out Maternity Clothes!

Oh boy!!! If you have been following me, I started prepping for a Figure Competition about 6 weeks ago! I was pumped to get back into my suit and heels because I haven’t pushed myself and my body that way in quite a while!!

Long story short, I have been taking my weekly pictures and tracking my show prep, but each week, I was getting more and more frustrated that my body wasn’t changing! I mean, I know how my body works and after doing 2 shows, I know what my body needs! So each week, I wasn’t seeing a difference, then weight started coming on (literally I gained 8 lbs in 2 week!!!) and felt bloated!! Well, I related the bloated and gas to a lot of protein (if ya know what I mean)! HAHA.. but that definitely was not it!

So needless to say, God had other plans than me prepping for a show!!! He felt we should expand our family even more!!

So there you have it!! A new journey begins as I put the figure suit away for a little longer!! Time to prep for baby #6 for our blended family!! We are so thrilled that the Lord has put this blessing in our hands and we have the ability to create another munchkin!

I am excited to share over the next 8 months how to be fit and healthy during pregnancy! I will still be doing EVERYTHING the same as I have been! I will still be working out, drinking my Shakeology, and eating clean! Yes, the nausea is pretty intense, but nothing that I can’t get through! Time to be strong, stay accountable, and enjoy this pregnancy!

If there are any other pregnant mommas out there who want certain tips or help through pregnancy that I can help with and share here on my blog, post in the comments!

    Congrats! I’ve been following you on FB for a while – and am so excited for you and how great of a place you are in your life! I am certainly interested in learning how to have a healthy and fit pregnancy – I am almost 10 weeks with twins!!! Thus far I have been trying to make the best choices – food wise, but the constant nausea and food aversions make it difficult!!! Would love to hear any tips and/or advice you have to share!!
