Deborah Acason, 2nd blog

Hi everyone, I thought I should give you a bit more information about myself so you can get to know me a little better.  I graduated with Law(Honors) and Criminology & Criminal Justice in December of  2010.

Little did I know I was pregnant, yay!  It is an exciting time and I will be training for London while pregnant. I know plenty of sportswomen who have come back at a professional level after having children and weightlifting doesn’t require as long a preparation as some of the other sports.

I had an exciting time in the lead up to the Commonwealth games. I got a sponsorship opportunity with Coles and met some really cool people including Curtis Stone and Adam and Callum from Masterchef!

I’m just going to take each day at a time and see how my body responds. I will still be training while pregnant, just lifting much lighter weights.

I love your comments and questions so please keep them coming.
