My Journey To A Healthy Pregnancy

My Journey To A Healthy Pregnancy

Last November, I was surprised by the gift of discovering I was pregnant with my first child. My husband was thrilled, but my first reaction was surprisingly confusing. I always looked forward to having children one day, but for the past eight years, I've been very work-oriented and independent. Finding out about this huge and unplanned change proved to be a challenge for me. Ultimately, I knew that I was happy and blessed. My wonderful and supportive partner helped me work through my initial fears. I've been determined to have the healthiest possible pregnancy for my baby's sake, as I knew that stress would not at all be helpful.  More than anything, my mind played a huge part in helping me to have a healthy pregnancy.

Krystal's incredible postpartum fitness journey

Stop saying "I can't". It's more destructive to your well-being than you may realize. "I'd say that my biggest setback has been the belief that I can't," confessed Krystal, a young mother who has been on PumpUp for a little over one year. "It was the idea that I can't lose weight, be a runner, get stronger, or change my life." For this reason, Krystal experienced several ups and downs related to her physical and mental health. With the help of PumpUp, she was able to embark on her postpartum fitness journey in the most incredible way possible.
