A new look at time...

 Isn't she the cutest? :)

I absolutely am loving being a mommy! :) It really is the best! I am starting to get the hang of things a little bit more. She is almost 8 weeks old now and growing so fast! I am slowly coming to the realization that I don't have to do "everything" in one day. I live day by day and literally hour by hour. I try to do laundry when I can and keep the kitchen clean when I can. Nothing has to be perfect. I would rather be spending time with my baby girl when she's awake rather then sitting her in a bouncer and cleaning. I am finally getting enough rest at night so when she wakes me up at 6-7 I can wake up also and start my day...while she still sleeps. :) She likes to go back to sleep until about 8:30 or 9. Sometimes I go back to sleep with her, and other times I will just hold her and watch her sleep. :) That's my favorite! :) I breastfed in public for the first time this past weekend. Sophia and I went and met my parents for the weekend and I fed her at a restaurant. I used a cover, of course, but it was kinda cool! It made me a little more confident that I can do it at other places and not worry to much. I have a new cover coming in the mail this week and can't wait to get it! 

Isn't it cute?! Go it from Ruby Dean Designs on Facebook! She has the cutest stuff! :)

As for my workouts, I missed all the aerobics classes last week. Every time I would get ready to go, she would spit up all over both of us or have a leaky diaper or something would happen and I would just give up.  I'm still trying to get the hang of getting out of the house on time with breastfeeding her and not having to change clothes several times haha. I did make it out of the house today, however! I actually like the class! I am constantly moving and I know most of the songs so I can sing along! The instructor asked me today if I like to dance or have done that in the past. Apparently after only the second time going, I'm doing really well with the steps. It's basic aerobics I have done before in aerobics videos and steps from twirling and flag corp. Apparently it just works for me! So i am enjoying myself! I am hoping to go again Thursday morning and maybe Saturday. Saturdays are an hour earlier and it might not work with Sophie's eating schedule...We will have to see! :)

I am on Week 2 Day 3 of Couch to 5K. I still have not become as strict about that as I would like. I would like to run on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, but since I can only run in the evenings around 7 (because it's been between 105-109 degrees everyday) it has hindered me. I'm still trying to work around her eating schedule. That has been the most difficult thing for me to get used to. I did run last Wednesday with some friend though! My friend Jackie walked with lil S in her stroller, while I ran and did W2D2 of C25K with her hubby, Brad! It was after dark so it was only 99 degrees! That's almost chilly in these parts! haha :) It was a good run! I really want to keep going, I hate that I'm struggling with finding time...I'm hoping Fall weather will make it a bit easier for me! I CAN NOT WAIT FOR FALL! This summer heat is for the birds! Plus I'm hoping to run my first 5K in the fall! If I can just get through C25K! :)

I just got a new Bondi Band in hopes it will make me want to get out more! haha I always love new stuff! Also got me 2 new workout shirts! Hopnig they will keep the sweaty smells at bay! My usual tanks smell AWFUL! Any ideas on how to help this? Just laundry detegent has not helped. I also tried washing them with vinegar...Yeah that didn't help either...Any ideas are welcome! :) I will post pictures of the new stuff later! :)

Once again, I leave you with a picture of my cutie pie! :)

  3. I swear Sophia is so cute! As far as the Aerobics classes go... you go girl!! I suck at them. I am so uncoordinated lol. Keep your chin up... things will get easier and you will get back into running and exercise! I don't blame you for making Sophia priority #1...you need to enjoy the time while she's little :)

  4. She is so adorable! And I think between 8-12 weeks things get even easier because things naturally fall into even more of a routine. You are doing GREAT with it all. :)

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

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 BOB Revolution 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 . Th
