Couldn't feel better, my body, energy & mobility is allowing me to continue to stay active. Yes I understand that this may shock others... And it's because my lifestyle and bodies condition coming into my pregnancy was not like theirs and that is the honest truth. I would train 8+ @hiit_australia sessions per week, work 80+ hours per week, my alarm is 4am Mon-Sat & every 2nd Sun, I clock off around 8:30pm Mon-Fri, I sleep on average 4-5hrs a night, I eat 80/20, 80% really wholesome & healthy & 20% is usually little tasty treats but it's also not always the case as i don't always feel like rubbish. My body isn't a pussy (excuse my language) I have never treated it soft, I've never not worked my ass off or never NOT worked since I was 13yrs (2-3 jobs at one time). My body is sooooo use to my constant hard work that it can handle high stress environments like what brushing your teeth may be for someone else. I know this sounds harsh but it's so bloody annoying how the uneducated can't just move on, you have no idea about me, haven't pre-screened me, haven't been to any of my appts, you also aren't even qualified in the field, yes you've had a baby or a number of babies but that's not making you a doctor... Sorry! I'm 100% doing what is 100% safe for my baby & my body, what works for me may not work for the next pregnant lady... that is obvious. If there was any message my message would be that I would love anyone considering to conceive to get themselves in a healthy routine beforehand, to help give them the opportunity to be allowed to continue being physically strong and active throughout their journey. In saying that, you won't know what is thrown at you until it happens as every pregnancy is different an comes with its own set of challenges.

Ci z nich, którzy martwili się o dziecko Chontel, gdy ta wymachiwała hantlami, mogą odetchnąć z ulgą.
25 marca na świat przyszedł synek fitnesski pochodzącej z Australii. Jeszcze na kilka dni przed porodem modelka publikowała filmy, na których widać, jak w zaawansowanej ciąży intensywnie trenuje boks. Pierwszym zdjęciem małego Jeremiaha Thomasa świeżo upieczona mama pochwaliła się na Facebooku i Instagramie. W dniu narodzin chłopiec ważył 3,5 kg i mierzył 53 cm.
Introducing Little D Jeremiah Thomas Duncan Born: "good Friday" 8:24pm 25th March 2016 Weighing: 7'13 pounds (3.5kg) 53cm long 39weeks /2days Healthy happy baby boy, absolutely nothing medically wrong with bubba, he is extremely alert and very strong shocking the staff here with his arms and neck strength. Absolute champion on the boob & feeding very regularly no problem. My recovery is smooth also with no complications. Miah has the most incredible dad who has been my rock throughout this entire experience, without Sam I don't know if the experience would had been that successful. Sam has done basically everything and picked up the tricks, tools & just the challenging 'new born' tasks like a bloody natural. Love at first sight I have now experienced & that new found attraction to your husbands "babies daddy" I know does exists & I can't picture anything more attractive then seeing your husband nurture their new born. Thank you to my incredible team who helped us finish off what has been such an amazing experience. Also I BIG thanks for everyone for all of their supportive comments, I do read every single comment & it honestly makes me so happy and smile all day from your kind words. I love Jeremiah T Duncan so much it's crazy ? Thank you Mel @captured_dreams_by_melanie
Jak zapewnia jego mama, jest cały i zdrowy: „Wszystko jest z nim w porządku, jest bardzo ruchliwy i wyjątkowo silny – personel jest zaskoczony siłą jego ramion i szyi!”. Być może to zasługa intensywnych treningów siłowych Chontel? Zobaczcie, jak wyglądały jej ćwiczenia do ostatniego dnia ciąży i poznajcie jej nowo narodzonego synka!
Hitting the 39 week mark & feeling incredible. Muay Thai feels great, almost like a full body stretch an massage. Even though I may not do all drills, I am still moving my body, helping with circulation & feeling fantastic. Yes this video is sped up, the full video is on my Facebook Page (link in bio) and of course all raw videos are on my Snap Chat (chontelduncan) @hiit_australia
Tonight's workout was on point, even though sooooo much is now modified for me, I am SUPER grateful for my pre pregnancy health condition that has allowed my body to absolutely smash this pregnancy & provided me with the ability to keep moving now almost at 37 weeks. Not long now until I'll be completely out of action. For how long... Who knows, it all depends on how the delivery goes, how my body handles birth, how settled and well Little D feeds, how I handle being a mummy for the first time & all those 'many' factors to consider. But for now I am just taking each day as it comes & appreciating my health for what it is. I see my OB tomorrow so looking forward to seeing the update on instructions. Stay tuned on my snap to hear what he has to say. Tonight may or may not be my last @hiit_australia workout... You never know!
BUMP UPDATE ? 37 weeks.... Only 21 days to go ? Well well Little D you have caused quiet a commotion, you are most certainly making your entrance into this world noticeable. But seriously "what a week" ? did not expect that, can not believe how many people are apparently doctors, how easily people can slam a pregnant women, but more importantly how INCREDIBLE absolute strangers are. I don't think there are any words that could describe just how humbled I am to see absolute strangers support my lifestyle, pregnancy, my unborn child & give me the respect I think I deserve for putting in the effort to maintain my habits whilst pregnant. For a women to consider falling pregnant is a HUGE decision it's a permanent decision, not just the physical demands, the risk, but you're preparing to sacrifice your very being to be this little persons everything for as long as you live. Then there's conceiving, you couldn't feel more pressure if you tried, it's extremely difficult for so many women, I am extremely grateful I fell first go, but I am close to so many whom have struggled greatly. Now you're pregnant the physical changes, the tests & the realisation that it's happening is prominent. What if you're told at 12 weeks your child is at great risk or what if you miscarry ? it's emotionally hectic!!!! You get through all that & you know that from here on out what you feel emotionally the baby will feel, you know what you eat the baby will eat & you know that your physical health will impact the babies as he/she develops within. You make everyday the best so at the end of the journey you can hold your head high I know that you brought this little person up the best possible way you could... You realise that school did NOT set you up to understand child birth or how to prepare for a child, so you walk into this overwhelming world of preparing for parenthood. So much to learn... ? BUT wait then there's critics, well in my case a lot of them. They pick and pull you apart, I had ppl at the beginning excited to see me blow out, see me quit at my career because apparently it's not possible to do both... TO CONTINUE READING HIT THE LINK ?

BUMP UPDATE ? 38 weeks.... Only 14 days to go ? An I am still baking ? this little coconut of mine, he is rock bottom, very active & giving me constant pressure "down there" as if to tease me like he's ready but not giving up easily. Maybe my active lifestyle, long work days & events have him super comfy as we all know babies love movement & attention. This journey is almost over & I have to say it's been the most AMAZING journey imaginable. I've learnt so much about the human body, about creating life, how to bring up a little human & I've learnt that I was capable of a lot more then I ever thought. I remember opening up my business @hiit_australia & people had whispered that I was over doing it, that I would burn out, get chronic fatigue, I wasn't living blah blah blah well the lifestyle they judged only intensified & now I'm doing it whilst 9months pregnant. I honestly believe if you respect your body & I mean properly respect it and most importantly if you have a healthy mindset (no self hate, no bad relationships with who you are or with food etc) the body will work the way it was designed to. I was blessed to have found my love for this lifestyle at a young age (I believe) & with that, made it my career. I get to meet incredible people everyday, I get to see people smile from within because they successfully changed their lives & I get to go to bed each night proud of the person I am. I wouldn't say I've never made a mistake...I've made plenty, I wouldn't say I just straight up succeeded...I fell many times. I would say, I never gave up on wanting to be the best version of ME! My baby will be given two of the best examples of what love, happiness, kindness & life is all about. He will be given two people who will demonstrate how important it is to help others & most importantly he will be given a home of wealth. Wealth to me is a busy house of many children, passionate parents & a lot of noise. Everything I have done up until this point was to be in the position I am in today. Labour is around the corner & I am so... TO CONTINUE READING CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO (Facebook page) ?
BUMP UPDATE ? 39 weeks.... Only 7 days to go ? I have hung up the gloves & sneakers ????? Had my last session Monday night, absolutely LOVED it, had great energy, flexibility & recovery... but my instincts told me that this should be my last @hiit_australia class. It's hard to explain but you just know your body & it's almost like you have this bizarre connection with it where it tells you... Anyways I am proud of my journey, SO proud of Little D & couldn't have wished for a better experience. Now for the waiting game till our D Day! My husband has been incredible, foot rubs, sneaking off to work so I get a sleep in, making sure everything is ready, always turning up to our OB appts with a bucket full of Q's, going over everything we need to do when the day finally arrives & always asking me how I an his son are. Seriously couldn't have done it without him ? My final challenge is accepting that I have to take time off from work, I can't run the classes, can't train in them, can't control the office & oversee that everything is running smoothly... I have other priorities now & until Little D arrives I cannot structure or plan out a new routine until then. I have no idea how I will make it work, but I just know it will. I love my job, I love the atmosphere, I love the people, I love being productive, busy & achieving. So now it's time to step out for a second & challenge myself to master running a business whilst being the best mum a possibly can for my little man. Is crazy to think that soon I won't have my bump...? Little D I cannot wait to meet you ? "First glimpse of him will be on my snap chat chontelduncan"
