Hi, again.

It is kinda hard to blog about running when I haven't been running.
I am ashamed.
And every time I see friends posting running pictures, mileage reports, and talking about cool stuff like black toenails, I feel a tinge of nostalgia and envy.

What have I been up to? 
Working and being a mom.

Health/weight wise, I did lose my pregnancy weight and got back down to size 6. And that was before the Thanksgiving and Christmas season.
However, somehow, I did a little too much hovering over cakes and pies and I am back up again. :( 

I still hurt at weird non-running places when I do my run/walk on the treadmill. I have a doctor's appointment this week and I hope she will give me some answers.
Over the past few months, I have been exercising, in spurts. I will do pretty good for a few days and then, I start hurting and so, I backed off. And then it takes me a WHOLE lot to get started all over again.  This month, my current mileage is 6.1 miles. That sucks. But it is 6 miles I wouldn't have at all, if I hadn't got up and ran/walked.  I am critical of myself, and yet, I am not critical. Oh, I am so contradicting.
This is my run/walk this morning.

I am going to take one day at a time. Seriously just focus on one day. I can always encourage myself with the good days, but when I have a bad day, it is just it. I will have my ONE bad day and move on to the next and make it a better one.
And I am going to need your help to keep me going.

In other news,

My sweet baby will be 15 months in 2 days.
He loves birds.
He has a bunch of teeth.
He loves to eat.
He gives the best hugs and kisses.
And I never knew love like this.


  1. I've been working and being a mom too! I get serious envy when I see others post about runs too! To everything there is a season. We will get our time again!

  2. At least you have made a start - welcome back

  3. great attitude! one day at a time, one step at a time. It's just those little consistent choices that add up!

  4. run/walk of any sort is momentum. i'm probably going to be doing run/walks from here on out myself. chin up!


Thanks for reading! Do leave me a comment or two. They keep me motivated.
