Good Day :)

I had a pretty good day today. This was one of my hubby's days off, and he watched our lil S, while I went grocery shopping! It was nice to be able to look around the store without having a baby strapped to me! :) When I go shopping I usually wear her in a Baby Bjorn, because she is so much happier next to me instead of being in a carseat in a buggy. Now don't get me wrong, I love being a stay at home mom, especially to my lil princess (she SERIOUSLY is the best baby ever), but every once in a while you need to get out by yourself! :) Then I got home and I decided I wanted to go for a run...without the stroller...So my hubby stayed with her again and I went on an hour run/walk! It was fantabulous!  It was a beautiful day, and I went farther on my trail than I had gone before and ended up at a park!  Well, they call it a "park", but really it's a bike trail through a bunch of tree's...which is perfect by the way! The tree's gave me some shade and there was actually a little bit of green! (Most everything here is dead...We have been in a drought FOR...E...VER!!!) I even got a Sunburn...after just an hour! Craziness! I decided to snap this lil pic of me enjoying myself :)

Later, I realized that these sunglasses are ginormous and I probably shouldn't wear them in public. :)

I FINALLY started Week 3 of C25K! Then, after I walked a bit more, I ran for 6 min. and 40 sec straight! I probably would have tried to make an even 7, but that last minute I was running up a hill and I wimped out. :) Nevertheless, I am pretty proud of myself! I think I could complete a 5K right now. It may not be with a good time, and I might have to walk some, but I could complete it! :) It has now been 3 months since I had my baby girl, (YES 3 months ALREADY!) and I have no more exscuses. It is finally getting cooler outside (Yes 93 is cooler!) and I need to just get out there!

So I am writing this hoping I will receive some encouraging words, and some JUST DO IT attitude from people! I need a good push and people to hold me accountable! I need to lose this baby fat! I may have lost the "pounds", but everything else "adjusted" itself! Can we say Junk in the trunk? :) I will hopefully be running again on Wednesday, especially since I know I won't be able to move after today! :) 

Hope everyone has a good night! (Or Morning now)

I leave you with a couple of pics of pure 3 month old adorableness!


  1. She is adorable! And good for you for getting out there and running just 3 months after having a baby!!! That is awesome. I'm pretty sure I was still sitting on the couch crying about how fat I and lazy I was after mine were still 6months old. haha That's why I am now busting rear and always running running running! haha
    You totally CAN run a 5k!!!

  2. I've missed your awesome blog for a while, and I am SO SO proud of you for getting out there again! Good on your hubby for taking care of your princess while you had some serious "me" time. You did amazing today, and I bet you feel great about it. Keep it up!

  3. That's awesome girl!! I am so proud of you :) I'm on week 4 right now... basically because I slacked for 2 weeks and had to redo both week 3 and week 4 lol. I keep getting a side stitch in my last 5 minute interval of running. I know it's because I'm not breathing very controlled. But it HURTS. How fast do you run your running intervals? I was kind of curious to know this because I can't seem to find a pace that I stick with the whole time? Any help is appreciated!! Again, I think it's awesome that you're back out there running after 3 months... big inspiration for those people both with and in my case, without, kids!

  4. Thank you ladies! Jesica...I don't try to stick to a certain pace right now...I'm still just trying to keep running and not stop breathing! lol So I can't really tell you! Sorry! I will work on that later! lol My short term goal would be to run a 12 min. mile and try to stick to that....but right now, I'm pretty sure someone walking could pass me up! Haha! :)

  5. all that matter is that you're out there running!! Keep up the good work girlie :) I'm not very fast either and at the end of each 5 minute run interval I feel like I'm ready to pass out lol

  6. First - I love love love the pics of your little precious angel... she is so cute. :)

    Also, the fact that you are out and starting is an acomplishment! Keep that mindset and you WILL do it. I am already thinking about what I will need to do after my little one is here and I am ready to start now. I know once I get there I won't want to though.... but think about how active you will be able to be once Sophie gets to crawling and running around! I know that is something I think about. I want to have more energy and feel better about myself when my little girl is wanting to run around. Hang in there and I look forward to your post about how well you are doing. :)

    I need to update mine.... I am slacking. LOL but I will.

Park Problem Solved! :)

Looks like I have found my park! It's about 10 min. away driving, but it is totally worth it! My run wasn't all that exciting, but the Park was! :) Here are my new running buddies! :) They are fun to watch while running by! :)  Yes that's my finger...The sun was very bright and I didn't see it! lol :) I just love it all!  Stopping to take pictures! :) I have to Thank my mom who actually Google Maped this Park for me! :) So glad she found it! :)  As for the run, I really don't know how long the trail is, so I don't even know how far I went! I made it all the way around, walking, in less than 15 min. so I am thinking that it is at least a mile. If it is, then I did 3 miles today! If not, then...I don't know! It's times like these that I wish I had my Garmin ! :) For the first 2 laps, I decided to just Run/Walk. I would run 5 min. walk for 1 or 2 min. Then the last lap I just walked the whole time. Just to enjoy it! I just have to say...the hills are

Cowtown Half Recap!

On Sunday, February 24, 2013 I ran my first official Half Marathon!  Before the race started, I met up with these fellow MRTT ladies!  Pic from How My World Runs It was freezing cold (yes 33 degrees is freezing to this Texan! haha) and I was hoping it wouldn't warm up too much because I run so much better in the cold. I ended up wearing my jacket the whole time and was completely comfortable! We had a wind advisory in affect and I think the wind made it even cooler. This was also my first time to run with my new haircut and with my hair down! Didn't bother me at all! Short hair for the win! :) I was in the very last Corral to start. Yes, I know I'm slow. Get Over it!<---Saw that saying on several shirts throughout the race!  Looks like I need one! haha :) I had to post this pic, because I have no idea what I was doing, nor remember even taking it! Haha! About 20 min before the race, I headed to the porta potty's. Yeah, I should have
