There is so much to be said about the strength of a woman: How she can be a multitasker and think and plan so many things all at the same time, where she finds strength to labor and bring a child into this world, or how she can be the glue that holds her family together even when she's broken inside.
Truly, there is nothing that a woman can't do, not even when people say she can't. Being physically fit and active while carrying a child in her womb is one of them.
In a story published by Smartparenting.com.ph earlier this month, Rachelle Que-Love talked about discovering CrossFit, and how it has helped her overcome some pregnancy issues like mood swings, zapped energy, and lack of self-confidence. It's why she still keeps to her exercise regimen even now that she's five months pregnant with twins.
"A lot of people think that crossfit is super intense, barbells and all, but that’s the competitive side of crossfit. There’s another side where we train for health and for longevity, which is more what we do here," she clarifies.
"I weighed 128 pounds before I got pregnant. If I told you that, you probably wouldn’t have believed me because it didn’t really show. For me the numbers on the scale is just a number, and it really shouldn’t be an indication that you're overweight. If you’re healthy, you feel good and you look good. It’s really more about how you feel."
