My name is Laura Sanhueza-Miller and I am so honored to be a part of the “For Two Fitness” family of ambassadors.

After 15 years of being just my husband and I, we are growing our family to three with the addition of our first child, due December 2, 2015.

As an athlete, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with pregnancy.  I have been active since the age of 9, having competed internationally in my 20’s for Canada in both rowing and triathlon, so I was hoping to have no issues.  However, reality was (and still is) that hormones and bodily changes are inevitable, so the same fun can still be had but goals just have to be adjusted.

These days my goals are simple: listen to the body and stay active within my new limits.  As a triathlete, my activities of choice are swimming, biking and running, with some bigger goals of completing some running road races along the way during pregnancy!

I am hopeful that maintaining an active lifestyle during this time will help contribute to an overall healthy pregnancy and also a faster recovery postnatal.  It’s amazing, each day of pregnancy teaches me about what the female body can do and also what I can do.

My current “pregnancy training log” comes in the form of a blog, www.ironmom.ca.  Here I share my daily workout pics, weekly blogs, and eventually, my journey postnatal to complete an Ironman in the Summer of 2016 (8 months after Baby Miller comes into this world, yay!).  I am definitely prepared for the various potential outcomes, but know that no matter what, as long as I keep my body, mind and heart healthy, then I will give this little baby a great start to life.
