Well this is one way to go through pregnancy…
And Sarah Stage can move it on over, because there’s a new “Fit Mom” in town!
Stacie Venagro, a 31-year-old bodybuilder, is now 30 weeks pregnant with her first child, and she won’t quit that super-healthy lifestyle, even if it becomes controversial!
The fitness pro, who has been crowned World Miss Fitness America Pro three times and Miss Fitness Universe once more, is keeping very close to her nutrition and fitness regimen even while pregnant.
Thankfully so far it hasn’t led to judgment from the Internet, she revealed:
“My friend and people in the fitness world have ben extremely supportive. They know that I’m embracing this pregnancy, I’m embracing my body’s changes. [The concerns] have mostly been from family. My husband thinks I need to eat more. And I can, and I do, but I do it in moderation.”
Venagro reveals that she’s keeping close track with her doctors about what’s healthy — despite putting up pics (above) of ripped abs in the middle of her pregnancy:
“Listening to the doctors and making sure you are on track is all you need. Don’t let someone else’s negativity ruin your day or even stress you out during your own pregnancy. One person may gain 15 pounds and the next may gain 100 pounds; everyone is different. You can only compare yourself to who you were yesterday.”
What do U think about this new fit mom’s take on a healthy pregnancy?!
