Update: 6 months postpartum

Hi everyone, this coming Friday, I will be 6 months postpartum. I feel I am looking “better” than I did when I had my first son about this time. But I may be delusional. I think I weigh (150lbs) about the same when I was PP in 2017. I can’t complain about where I am…

Self Sabotage – Recognize it!

We are now 15 days into the new year.  About this time is when people begin to lose momentum towards their goals. I, for one, have not been very active.  Mostly because I never set a real goal.  For myself a weekly goal for work outs rarely keeps me motivated.  I usually need an external…

RNRSA – 2 Days to go

Ahhhh, two days until my 7th half marathon. I shouldn’t be “scared” since this is my 7th one but in reality I am scared. My mind tells me “be afraid” my heart and gut tell me “we got this!” When our mind and heart are not aligned it is a terrible struggle. One where we…

Holidays, Breastfeeding, & Running – Oh my!

This week has been ultra-busy and I had the luxury of not cooking for Thanksgiving. We went over to my husband’s family’s house. With a full time job, breastfeeding and other obligations sticking to a running schedule is not the easiest but completely possible. With the help of my family, it is easy. Here’s how…
