Welcome to I Am Mommy

 

welcome-to-i-am-mommyFirst I just want to say hi and welcome to I Am Mommy!  My name is Angelena and I am the mommy to an amazing little girl who is 4, and I am pregnant with our son who is due 3 days after her third birthday.  Before becoming a stay at home mom, I was a personal trainer and nutrition specialist.  For a while I worked from home, training and doing some online training, but with being a full-time mommy it was hard to balance the two.  I also run a fitness & healthy living blog, but since my fitness is on hold for the time being I haven’t posted much there.  I always wanted to be one of those fit pregnant ladies who only had the bump, but working out during this pregnancy is really difficult.  When I was walking and lifting weights last month it felt like my abdominal muscles were separating…most painful thing ever!  I decided to start back up last week and my sciatica started acting up and now I am limping.  So…I have decided just to focus on staying active with my daughter and eating really healthy!  Once my little boy is here and I start working out again, I will share some of my mommy fit tips that helped me get back into shape after my daughter was born.

Lately I have started to think about who I am and what I want to do.  I have always loved writing and reading.  I loved working on my other blog and really missed it.  One morning I was relaxing while my daughter was at pre-school, trying to get in all the relaxing I can before the baby is here, and I was thinking about how much I love being a mommy.  When my daughter was born it was the happiest day of my life.  I knew that God had made me her mommy for a reason.  As the years have gone by my house has gotten increasingly messier, each room has bins of toys, and I seem to always be trying to organize and clean up at the same time!  But the messier my house got the more my love grew for my daughter.  I know that she will only be little once, so I try not to stress over the small stuff.  I figure if she goes to sleep happy at the end of each night then I have done my job.  Now, with a second baby on the way, and more things being added to my list I decided to start a mommy blog.

Thus, I Am Mommy was born.  I want to keep a journal of their childhood, and to share with other mommies stories, ups and downs, tips, and just every day mommy life.  As I grow and progress my blog I would like to work with baby, kids and mommy brands to bring you what is the latest & greatest and to do some product reviews!  We are all in this together and I think that the more of a community you have as a mommy the less you will feel alone in this journey.  I am so incredibly blessed to be a mommy and I can’t wait to dig in and share some posts about what being I Am Mommy is all about.

Here are some of my favorite things this week!

    Motherhood definitely opens new doors and redirects us in ways we never thought of. Great first post and looking forward to more! Maybe document your pregnancy journey this time around? 😉 Wish I would of documented more during my pregnancies but never started blogging until after my boys were born. =/

      Yes it does Michele! I am hoping to write about this pregnancy too. I didn’t really take pictures or journal about it when I was pregnant with my daughter. It all goes so fast! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Angelena, becoming a mom has been the most amazing thing that has happened to me. Everything in my life has been meticulously planned, but in mommy hood this is impossible. I am loving the chaos though. Definitely following for more 🙂

      I totally agree with you! There is nothing as wonderful as being a mommy! The chaos is part of the fun right? At least that is what I tell myself! Thanks for coming by! I look forward to reading more of your posts as well!
