JAMIE +JAMIE ⚜️Louisiana  FRIENDS making fitness a priority Moms Full Time Nurse Anesthetists 😷 Sweat💦 📱#100strong 12 week challenge #PWR

Happy hump day ladies! Been a crazy few weeks with pregnancy & the realization that Macy is going to have her 3rd birthday party this weekend😭. There have definitely been times this week where pregnancy hasn’t been that glamorous and on one hand I want to speed it up and have this baby...but then on the other hand I would be speeding up time with Macy and if I think about it like that it makes me sad! They really grow so fast💨! .
Okay so actually here to share a few of my favs for our #100strongchallenge with our girl Katie @to_fitspo 😝. I’ll try to keep this brief but for beauty buys (hi #sephoraaddict 🙆🏻‍♀️) my go-to products are @crest whitestrips, @makeupforeverus pro-finish powder, @smashboxcosmetics primer, @fresh sugar face polish & sugar lip treatment , @narscosmetics_ blush (orgasm- I didn’t name it 🙈)... and lipsense (Praline rose/ Goddess / Bombshell...thank you @hiit.whit for the introduction 🤣) Love to hear if you’ve tried anything better than these! Always love new beauty products 😜. .
Athletic wear pants LuLu. Current favs being #preggo are the Align. These have a wide waist band and feel like butter! Super comfy! Will say that there are mixed reviews (complaints of pilling, I have not had this problem and they do take them back I believe if this happens!) Also loving @senita nursing bras...Top & hat in this pic is from @tolittlearrows ❤️
I usually post food preps in stories so if you are interested in that let me know!
#favoritethings #babybump

Want to know about some of my favorite things?!?! Sports bras: This sports bra -@alala crossbody bra! I have it in black and white and it’s definitely one of my favorites! High neck for good coverage, but the mesh makes it still cool to sweat in. It’s supportive but not restricting and cute❤️❤️❤️. Leggings: I have to say that my favorite all around pants are @lululemon. These are the run on pants. Great pockets, very comfortable, holds shape well and squat proof 🙌🙌. I also love @outdoorvoices pants and high neck bras. If they put side pockets in the pants they would be 👌. Shoes: Hands down the best shoes for me are @brooksrunning I currently love both the pureflow 7 and the Launch 5.
As far as beauty secrets go... I’ve never been one to specialize in the area and now that I’m almost 40 I certainly wished I had! I started using senegence skin care about a year ago and it has done wonders for my skin. Skin seems much brighter with less breakouts, and their makeup is amazing. However, having fat loss from your face along with aging in general can certainly highlight your age and not in a good way. I recently tried Botox for forehead and crows feet and had fillers in my cheeks and lips to help combat volume loss and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I highly suggest you do lots of research before doing anything drastic. I found a provider I trust who has excellent reviews and stressed my desire to look as natural as possible. Goal: No one to even notice I had anything done....accomplished. #100strong #100strongchallenge

This week’s challenge was inspired by Doretta @pushups.and.pizza Don’t forget to tag us and Katie @to_fitspo so we don’t miss it!!! #100strong #weeklychallenge #beaqueen

I have loved seeing all of these #facetoface transformations, so I decided to do one myself. It’s amazing to look back at pictures from years ago but remember exactly what I thought when I first saw it. That was a Mother’s Day luncheon I attended with my daughter, mother and grandmother over 10 years ago. I cringed when I saw that pic immediately judging myself. Now when I catch myself start picking myself apart in a pic, I will make a conscious effort to think about how much more confident I feel every day! I love the fact that I love myself enough to make the effort to make healthy decisions and stay active. Aging is going to happen, but I am going to try to do it as gracefully as I can. Strangely enough for me these days graceful means...sweating, lifting, squatting, curling and feeling better than ever💪 #pwr #workoutmotivation #lifestyle

#Bumpupdate 22 weeks and 5 days but who’s counting 🤣. Had an OB appointment this week and my doctor was pretty surprised that I had a kind of significant jump in weight, it seems baby boy had a growth spurt🤷🏻‍♀️. Officially in all maternity clothes or anything that stretches- grateful I get wear scrubs & athletic wear everyday.
Overall been feeling great despite a few long days at work that had me pretty exhausted by the evening time but that’s to be expected (and maybe a few mood swings 😬...) Workouts are going well (@kelseywells PWR 🏋🏻‍♀️+ @onepeloton 🚲)just trying to stay as active as possible. Of course no ab exercises for me. Highlight of my week was when Macy put her ear up to my belly to see if she could hear her little brother 😜. She loves feeling him move but I still don’t think she fully understands how her world is about to change, hi 👋 #centerofattention 🙈. Getting so excited to meet him💙🖤...
How are all you #preggos doing?! Any tips for preparing your toddler for a new sibling ?! #Pregnacybelly #22weeks

Who else has these feels??🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️
No matter how long we have had this account, we still freak out when someone we know finds our account 🤦‍♀️. This week has been so crazy, that I can’t believe it’s only #humpday 🐪
We work on a number system with our schedules at work and occasionally we end up on a rotation that is completely opposite which has made it a little more challenging to get our workouts done together. JB knocked out an early @onepeloton ride, and I did week 9 #pwr abs at home this afternoon. Let me just say if you haven’t tried pikes on a fitball try it and let me exactly what you think😝🔥. Hope you all are having a great week! We love seeing all the responses to the #100strongchallenge and this quote describes one of our biggest insecurities for sure! #humpdayhumor #100strong

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” - Winston Churchill.
Step out of your comfort zone.. that’s the #100strongchallenge this week. That’s what we did 9 weeks ago when we changed workout programs after 2 years! That’s what JB did when she decided to have baby #2, and when we decided to start posting half dressed (or less👙) pictures of ourselves on the internet in hopes of motivating others through our fitness journey. And when we decided to go back for masters degrees after working comfortably as nurses. Truth is we have been stepping out of our comfort zones for years and although We can’t think of anything specific right now trust us when we say... When we do, we will take that step. Don’t be held back by fears of failing. #nurselife #motivateothers #challenge

Slide 1: 2013 minimal activity / 2018 over 2 years of @sweat app💧

Slide 2 : Nov 2017 (pre PWR) to March 2018 (8 Weeks PWR🏋️‍♂️) If you could spend a few days with us you would likely hear us
1. Complaining about ourselves while: 👇
2. Complimenting each other

Why do we do this?? Because we feel great! It’s so easy to see progress on your friends and miss it on yourself, but it is happening.🙌 It may not show as fast as you wish it would, but if you are doing the work (and only you really know that🤔) then it will happen! And if you are just really unhappy with certain progress then IMPLEMENT A PLAN to address it! When I’ve been really down on myself in the past JB will tell me “well what do you want to do about it??” So incase you need that friend to give you a push...here it is. I’m pushing you out of your comfort zone! Are you giving it you all?? If that’s a Hell Yeah 🙋‍♀️ then give it time!! If that’s a maybe not 🤷‍♀️..What’s your plan?? Slide for my #PWR progress. This is 8 weeks of @kelseywells weight lifting program. It was strange for me at first to completely change the way I have trained for the last several years but I seriously LOVE the program and I am already grabbing heavier weights🙌🙌For all you #pwrbabes are you as excited as I am about the changes coming in week 9?!?!

Who agrees🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️. We woke up to heavy rain and winds today, along with time change (where did that extra hour go😫) ....as if Sunday’s weren’t lazy enough for us already! I guess there will be plenty of time to make our plans for the week! Thank you to everyone who for participated in the #selflove challenge last week. We can’t wait to see what challenge @to_fitspo had planned for the week ahead! #100strong #100strongchallenge

Happy Saturday ladies☀️! Hope everyone had a good week! JC & I just knocked out our last #PWR resistance workout of week 8 & my shoulders are still burning 🔥. On the agenda today is meal prep (See IG stories) and taking Macy to a birthday party🎉! What are you ladies up too? .
Update on #pottytraining : THANK YOU for all of your tips 🙏... loving the book “Oh Crap! Potty Training” by @jamieglowacki 🙌. Finally seeing some consistent progress 😝. Another random thought for the day is how did I not know about #maternity overalls with my last pregnancy 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣?! #fitpreggo #22weekspregnant

Happy #internationalwomensday We are all about seeing other women thrive, and as important as it is to have a support system, ultimately you have to be prepared to work hard and make sacrifices. But education is an incredible investment and nursing is great field where you can almost find
A job anywhere, make a decent income and ROOM FOR ADVANCEMENT . .
Most of you know a little about what we do but we often get questions about being Nurse Anesthetists. .
➕We both worked several years as nurses before going to school to become CRNAs. The field enticed us because we both love working in critical settings and the autonomy that comes with being A CRNA. .
➕CRNAs must complete more than 2,000 clinical hours and administer more than 600 anesthetics before graduation. (Long intense training program!!) .
➕Nurse anesthetists must possess advanced assessment skills and be able to work directly with other members of the patient care team to provide the best possible outcomes.
. ➕We work some long tough days but we also have some short days too! We work with an incredible group of people who mostly love what they do and it make for a great work environment!!
#aana #nursing #nursingstudent

We love that we are making this week all about ourselves, because after all we have to take care of ourselves to be able to take care of all those depending on us!! JB did a short cardio day this am and I took a rest day, because that’s exactly what this body was calling for! The #100strongchallenge for this week is all about #selflove but also was to include one thing we need to work on. For me it’s better rehabilitation. I have gotten much better at stretching post workout but I would like to start including just one day per week that I devote to stretching, foam rolling., etc.... Since starting #PWR about 2 months ago I find that some part of my body is sore almost every day.. And I’m not complaining about that, because I know that this program is challenging me and hopefully sculpting this body 💪. So I need to make sure I’m taking the best care of it🙌. Does your schedule include this regularly?? If so are you mixing it in with another workout day or giving it its own day?!?👇👇 Let me know! #100strong #struggles
