A year later...

July 22nd was the 1 year Birthday of my blog! :)
I had just started Couch to 5K on July 14th and was going strong! 
Little did I know what lie ahead...

I went through my 2nd miscarriage, which put C25K off for almost a month. Then I got back to running! Then we moved to Fort Worth. 6 hours from our friends and family. Only to find out the next day that we were pregnant again! :) We found out October 17th, but waited to tell our families at Christmas. :) I put off my running again, after trying to run in Fort Worth.  I didn't feel running was worth losing another baby, so I just stopped. I occasionally walked, but that was the extent of my exercise. We announced we were having a girl and then I showed off her first pictures! My blog quickly turned from a running blog to a baby blog! :) I knew this was one of the best ways to keep my family and friends updated on the pregnancy. I walked a couple of times. Here and Here. Trying to walk the baby girl out! Then it was time to announce the biggest news of my year! Sophia Grace was here! :)


Now she is one month old...

I have been cleared by my doctor and ready to start exercising again! Now I just have to find some time..... I started C25K on July 20th! It was my first time to run on a treadmill. I pretty much hated it! haha By the time I got up to speed it would be time to start walking again. (The first week is 8-1 min. walks) This is the way I will have to do a lot of my training because of the area we live in. First of all it's soooo hot, 2nd I have to work around Sophia's eating schedule, and 3rd I can't run in the dark around this area. Way to scary. So....I am stuck on the treadmill. Hopefully it will get better as I get farther along in the program! I did Week 1 Day 2 on July 22. I was actually able to get outside and use my jogging stroller! I am so lucky that Sophia loves riding in the stroller! She slept the whole time! It is sooo much harder to run while pushing a stroller though! Haha I know I am burning more calories though! That's for sure! :) I was supposed to do Week 1 Day 3 yesterday. It did not happen. I am still trying to learn to prioritize, work on time management, and just trying to get a schedule with Sophia. It just didn't work yesterday. Today, I had to go grocery shopping. Which has led me to another day where I may not be able to do it. She gets cranky in the evenings and I have to feed her a lot. She absolutely refuses to take a bottle so it's all breastfeeding for me! So I am the only one that can feed her, which makes it hard to schedule anything....I am taking it one day at a time though! I'm finding it very hard to find time to blog also! Just as I wrote that sentence she woke up and has started crying. It is not very easy to blog with someone in your lap! HaHa :)

Once again...I will leave you with more adorable pictures!

Hoping I can go run tomorrow! We will see! :)

  1. What a year you've had and what a beauty Sophia is! Don't stress too much about running. Do what you can when you can and it'll all come together, I promise. You'll find what works for you and baby. ENjoy this precious and fleeting time with your little cutie!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
