I keep alluding to the fact that we’ve had a big change in our lives recently.
I’m not trying to be vague or coy. I just don’t have the words to describe the elation and the relief and the joy that we feel at the addition of this amazing, wonderful, two-month-old teddy bear to our family.
Someday (maybe?) I’ll write a blog post summarizing the events of this summer and the subsequent jubilee Tee and I have been experiencing.
But for now, I’d like to talk about how to get back into a good routine for #body nourishment now that all my workouts now include ten pounds of baby goodness.
Lucky for us, the NCR Trail is literally right outside our front door. So Teddy and I frequently take mid-day walks on the trail, which is awesome. However – I’ve been really slacking on running.
Today, I decided to go with my theme of #BabySteps and follow this beginner 5K plan I found online:
It was pretty perfect for today. It feels funny to be doing such incremental work when I used to go for a seven mile run on a regular basis, but hey – it’s all about #BabySteps.
Additionally, I am (yet again) going to try this plank challenge thing:
Today was Day 1 for me. I feel an especial urge to strengthen my core, now that I am wearing and lifting Teddy every day. I wouldn’t say I am experiencing back pain, but I’m definitely aware of my back in a way I am not usually. SIDEBAR: I LIVE IN FEAR OF DAY 30.
