37 1/2 wks #pregnant➡️ 3 wks #postpartum ➡️ 11 wks post partum

I was told so many things when I was pregnant... Some applicable, some completely didn't apply to me. I was told it would take me a good amount of time to get "back into shape" . I'm not sure what timeline that looks like for most, but for me... I just never stopped doing my thing (well I guess other than resting and recovering from a grade 2 tear). Some people think I look terrible, and have openly said so lol... But honestly I don't care, fit is my thing and I'm just so blessed to have my health and have the opportunity to workout. And as important as fitness is to me, my hubby and baby girl are even more important to me. I've learned to re-prioritize. I credit my baby girl and hubby for helping me get back into shape. For me, breast feeding has worked wonders! Bonding with baby most importantly, and burning those calories lol.

Everyone's journey is different and unique. Just never let anyone else's expectations or doubts get in your way.
Be you, don't give up on YOUR goals.

"Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional." — Roger Crawford

When I started my #fitnessjourney I could have never foreseen the challenges in life and fitness, both bad and extremely good, along the way. From feeling on top of the world after earning my Pro card 4/16/11... to not only nearly losing my legs, but also my life exactly one month after turning Pro as a victim in a terrible auto vs ped accident (in which I was hit and pinned against a steel rail fence, sustaining bilateral compound tib/ fib fractures and compound left ankle fracture).

I saw my world crash around me. I was literally saved by the gracious hand of God, and was completely helpless and out of control. I learned to take it literally one baby step at a time. I managed to fight my way back on to the pro stage just 1 yr later, in spite of Doctors being skeptical that I could ever do what I did before.

I learned never to take my life, my health and any given day for granted. Marrying the love of my life and having our little miracle was something that seemed impossible only 5 years ago. I can't thank God enough for his countless blessings, and it is only by his strength that I was able to overcome my accident.

With pregnancy I had no idea how my fitness journey would go, but I took it day by day and worked out with caution, as my body allowed. I was looking forward to the post partum challenge and will continue to strive to get in the best shape of my life...

Sorry for the ramble lol, but you just never know what you are capable of... so don't let the doubters, haters and skeptics get in your way. God's got your future in His hands, trust Him.
