Ever found yourself in a place or a certain time of the day feeling total overwhelmed? Depleted and frustrated, trying not to lash out? Maybe you just feel lonely or over-wanted. Or maybe you just need help managing it all! What is this all about anyway?
At My Pregnancy Fitness, we provide practical solutions preparing for what is happening and what is about to happen, from conception to parenting.
Many women and men are depleted of their reserves building another person, maintaining a family, careers, and still finding time to care and nurture themselves. This is why our mission is finding ways to be fit, mentally and physcially. We understand even if you can’t do it all the world still expect you to (and so do your children). What our readers love most is that there is no pressure to get it all perfect because no one can. I think you are going to enjoy it, and I’d love for you to take a look!
My name is Julie Clancy and I am a mother of four beautiful, demanding, high energy children.
How did this become my thing?
Those said children were not interested in how tired I felt from juggling all my hats. They just wanted me wearing the mom hat 100% of the time with no excuses. I started posting pregnancy related topics on Facebook, which became a place for mommies to gather and experience a sense of community. I realized most women were just as overwhelmed as I was. Finding a solution to these everyday frustrations quickly became the thing I wanted to do when I could be doing anything else. Time on Pinterest looking for ways to organize my kid’s stuff, time management, and so on. It only seemed logically I could not be the only one doing this.
Where was my tribe?
I did not know where they were; reaching out to other busy moms helped close that gap. After passing 9,000 followers on Facebook I decided to start My Pregnancy Fitness. I soon realized most moms (and dads) feel overwhelmed! One child is as hard as four. My first child felt like walking through quicksand trying to learn everything there was to know. Finding time to pee alone is what two kids introduced. Soon, I found myself hiding from the very creation I was supposed to nurture when baby number three arrived. Four children, well, you find out just how liked you are when you start stacking up children. Someone once said fail is an acronym for: First Attempt, I’m Learning. So, in theory, you can never fail as a parent. Above all, it is about learning and growing together. You are in it, you are living it, you ARE doing it.
So what about my tribe: go big or go home!
I find most busy moms struggle with their identity when faced with all the responsibilities of having a family. Here, I help women combine family obligations as a parent with their personal goals (and needs) as person to eliminate mom/dad-guilt and build lasting relationships. As I said before, My Pregnancy Fitness is not just about physical fitness, it’s about mental fitness. You will probably always find yourself wanting to hide once and a while, raising children is hard work! Once you start talking to other moms you will realize most people are going through the same thing. That is where you find solutions to help with all the mind and body taxing experiences you are embarking upon. Remember your start can be someone else’s finish and vice versa! We’ll explore solutions for first-time mommies and veterans. Let us hear from you if you don’t see what you’re looking for. Consider us your little information army, here to serve you as a parent and a person, not just a care giver.
I’m glad you found us!
I look forward to sharing all the things that spark a smile. That seed of acceptance that tells the world you feel loved and understood! That unmistakable space you want to be in, so the world feels safe. I want to be a part of those smiles, those lives, those solutions…THAT tribe, my tribe. Join the tribe! Find your solutions! Be your solution! Be part of our tribe… Read more on My Pregnancy Fitness
