Fitness superstar Jamie Eason Middleton, founder of the popular Bodybuilding.com LiveFit 12-Week Trainer, has had a pretty amazing year. She experienced her first pregnancy, gave birth to her son August Middleton and announced the launch of her signature supplement line with Labrada Nutrition .
Pregnancy is something many women face in fear. What is going to happen to my body? How do I continue my workouts in a safe manner? Will I have to stop working out and give up all my hard work? These are a few questions many of us face.
As a Mom-to-be, Jamie is exploring health and fitness from a whole new perspective. Just a few weeks from welcoming her little one into the world, Jamie reflects on her pregnancy, shares her approach to training and nutrition and talks about how she’ll get back into shape.
What a whirlwind two weeks it’s been! Right after submitting my last blog post— and just after saying I felt like the baby wasn’t coming anytime soon, I went into labor!
As a new Fit Mom, I understand now, on a much deeper level, how precious time is! From being able to workout on a daily basis to juggling sleeping, feeding, changing diapers, laundry, and all the other demands of motherhood, I have learned how to multitask and make the most of my time. That said, having a busy schedule is no excuse for not getting in a workout.
Faster than a speeding treadmill. More powerful than an Olympic lift. Able to leap tall plyo boxes in a single bound. Look, over there with all the balls in the air! It’s a strong woman holding a babe…it’s SUPERMOM!
To honor and celebrate Mom’s impact on our health and wellness, Team FitRx compiled the best lessons from Mom. We hope this makes you smile!
I wasn’t expecting to be writing an entry this week. I thought I would have a little baby to be snuggling with, but that is not the case. I’m one day away from my estimated due date and 40 weeks pregnant— as I sit here and write you...drinking my raspberry tea!
A week has gone by since my last appointment with my midwife and I’m still here, and still pregnant! With eight days to go till my due date, I’m getting pretty anxious.
Another week has gone by and I’m still here, and yep, you guessed it, still pregnant! I’ve had a pretty good week, but the extra weight and water retention is in full swing now and really starting to make a difference in my look and feel!
