It’s Never Too Late to Start!

One of my goals for 2014 is to run 500 miles, either outdoors (when this Wisconsin weather warms up!) or on my elliptical. Yesterday, I found myself turning the calendar over to February and realized that I was still at 0/500. It was time to get on it!

Finally Using Our Jogging Stroller For Jogging

Inspired by a friend’s Facebook status, I decided to add some jogging to our traditional morning walks on the trail.  It was the first time I’ve actually used our BOB Revolution Jogging Stroller for jogging, and I must say – I absolutely LOVE it. Continue Reading…

Pushing Myself Is Worth It

Ugh, sometimes I am completely drop-dead exhausted by the time I put C to bed at 7pm.  The last thing I want to do is wash his bottles, and I certainly don’t have the energy for P90X.  Last night was one of those nights.  I melted into the couch Continue Reading…

When Did I Get So Old?!

I sprained my hip.  That’s right – my hip.  With that information, you might be led to believe that I’m sitting over here with a wrinkly body and white hair.  No, I didn’t turn 90 with Betty White this month.  I’m 24.

*sigh*

I can’t believe Continue Reading…

We’re Taking the P90X Challenge!

Hubster and I have decided to take the P90X challenge!  Okay, so the truth is that I’m excited about it and he’s begrudgingly going along with it.  I’ve been curious about this extreme 90-day fitness program for quite some time, but was always too scared Continue Reading…

#24 Complete a 5k: 25 Before 25

I’ve completed #24 on my 25 Before 25 list!  Last night I completed my first 5k!

After much convincing, Hubster decided to run it with me.  I’m so glad that he did.  He was in cross country and track in high school, so I consider him my running expert.  If it Continue Reading…

My Son Killed My Mid-Section

I was excited to notice how loose the jeans are that I’ve been wearing since having C.  So, I thought I’d test my luck and try on all of my old jeans.  Um…yeah, that was a bad idea.

My pre-C jeans fit perfectly everywhere except the waist.  C Continue Reading…

A Fabulous Sunday

I had the most fabulous Sunday.  C slept until SEVEN O’CLOCK!  This is huge – he’s been getting up between 5 and 6:30.  I had the opportunity to bask in the glow of his smiles before heading over to the gym, where I started doing the Couch to 5k! Continue Reading…

The Postpartum Clothing Void

I was really hoping that by now I’d be able to comfortably fit into my pre-pregnancy pants.  I can button them!  I just can’t breathe.

I’ve been working out once/day (sometimes twice!) for the past few weeks and have lost inches…but not enough Continue Reading…

30-Day Shred

Have you tried the 30-Day Shred workout DVD by Jillian Michaels?  I first tried it before my wedding and it definitely delivers.  I figured that since I’m in much worse shape post-baby and c-section, I might as well give it a shot.

I completed day two of Continue Reading…

First Post-Baby Workout at the Gym

If you’ve been reading my posts for a while, you’ll know how excited I was to start working out again.  It was pretty much a standard answer to the “What are you looking forward to” question in my weekly updates.  :)  Well…this week, I signed Continue Reading…

Bending Over: The New Aerobic Workout

Maybe I shouldn’t feel bad anymore that I’m too tired now to do some of the prenatal workout DVDs that I purchased a few months ago.  I discovered a new aerobic workout!

Bending over.

Laugh if you will, but every time I bend over to reach for Continue Reading…
