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.

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

I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

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…
