First 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.
