Juliana wrote that the video was taken three days before her September birthday. “I was concerned for posting bikini pictures because of all the horrible comments I get, since I was on the show and what made me sad 80% of the comments are from women,” she revealed. “I always had low self esteem, Having a baby now is making me realize how amazing women are, and that we should love ourselves no matter what.”
In a 2021 Instagram Story, Juliana revealed that she does cryotherapy. “It works by reducing blood flow to a particular area, which can significantly reduce inflammation and swelling that causes pain, especially around a joint or tendon. It can temporarily reduce nerve activity, which can also relieve pain.”
Juliana regularly shares videos of her workouts on her Instagram Stories. Some of her go-to workouts include weight and strength training, hiking, running on the treadmill and boxing. Currently pregnant with her first child with new beau Ben Obscura, she is still sharing her workouts with fans. All this movement is great for your body. Get up at least once an hour. A study in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology found that taking a two minute walk every hour can offset the effects of too much sitting.

Anyone who follows Juliana knows that she likes to take a cool dip in the pool post workout. “Exercise in an aquatic environment offers numerous options and techniques for almost all levels of physical ability. Exercise can be as basic as walking in the water to more high-level aerobic activities, such as deep-water running or swimming. Standing exercises often are performed in water that is waist to chest deep. These exercises can focus on improving range of motion/flexibility, balance and strength. Resistance training can be amped up by simply increasing the speed of movement or adding equipment, such as mitts, paddles, noodles or bands, to increase drag,” says the Mayo Clinic.
