In other news, you may have seen that I announced my pregnancy this past Monday on Facebook!! I decided to write down my own thoughts regarding Crossfit and pregnancy after the controversy that Lee-Ann Ellison and Heidi Powell (wife of Chris Powell from Extreme Weight Loss on ABC) stirred up. Both moms-to-be have been doing Crossfit leading up to their third trimester of pregnancy, and while both have some valid points and are trained fitness professionals, I don’t agree with everything.
For me, my pregnancy is about listening to my body, embracing the incredible changes, being healthy and active, without being extreme. In the past, I haven’t listened to my body enough, especially while I was competing in fitness competitions. We live in a society where we immediately want to erase all signs of pregnancy post-birth ASAP. Why? I don’t think it’s such a bad thing to be reminded of this little miracle that has been created. 🙂
Have a great Wednesday!
