Recently, my fitness business has really been taking off. I have been enjoying some nice momentum driving people to my site, and becoming more well-known in the fitness industry. However, I did not start blogging to be famous, or to be praised. My motivation for maintaining my fitness business and my site is simple — I have a passion for health and wellness, and I believe that there is a lack of “good” information on the web regarding fit pregnancy and parenting.
I believe that it is important to debunk the myths surrounding pregnancy and parenting.
- It IS possible to continue working out throughout pregnancy.
- It IS possible to eat well and prevent excess weight gain.
- It IS possible to bounce back quickly after delivery.
- It IS possible to maintain a workout schedule and eat well when you are a parent.
- It IS possible to get your pre-baby body back.
However, many women do not want me to debunk these myths. Unfortunately, many women actually want to use pregnancy as an excuse to be smug and lazy. And because of that reason, I am being criticized — some behind my back, and some to my face, and some both. I have even been “unfriended” by one or two new moms who do not want to hear that it is possible for them to workout during pregnancy or shortly afterwards.
So, what am I going to do about it? Absolutely nothing. I am going to keep moving forward and influencing women to be healthy. I refuse to be judgemental of the women criticize me for being happy and healthy. God does not give me the luxury of harboring judgemental, unforgiving thoughts toward another. For every 1 person who criticizes me, 16,232 come to my site and are influenced and encouraged to be healthy.
I firmly believe that we have a responsibility to be healthy — to put good food into our bodies, and to exercise. I have trained clients in the gym for 8 years, and I have seen women transform their physical body, and emotional and spiritual state by developing a healthy lifestyle. And I will continue to preach health until the day I die because I want to influence women to be healthy and happy!
