Goal Update

Well, here's how things have been going.

I'VE LOST 8 LBS SINCE JANUARY 1ST!!

Yep, so exciting. I've done HORRIBLY with changing my diet but I've done very good with uping my exercise. Whenever baby is playing on the floor, I'm there with him but keeping moving by doing mountain climbers, push-ups, and crunches. Have you ever tried doing crunches for 10 straight minutes? Tough! But I've done that numerous times while watching TV in the evening. I've checked a few exercise DVD's out from the library (and now that I know they have them, I will continue doing this!). I've continued cross country skiing 3 to 4 times a week. I've gone to power yoga with the track team a few times.

The snow is melting (boooo) but that means warmer temps so I can get baby out more and get the stroller out of my basement! Time for him to remember how to sit in that thing (and hopefully it goes better than it went last fall when normally he just cried in it). I'm going to train for a half marathon with a friend but not actually run the race with her (it was $90 and I'm not going to have $90 of fun). Blaine realllly needs to like the running stroller because her 9 month old daughter has no problem with it.

Way to go! That is awesome!

I find that time of day is critical for a good stroller run. I try to pick a post nap, post pooping time and that's the best! :)

Come run the half marathon in Gambier! It's cheap and flat and beautiful, and since you'll be finishing waaay before us marathoners, you'll definitely get to enjoy all the delicious food while it's still warm. :)

Congratulations! It definitely takes more planning to get in exercise with a baby around! I can't wait for spring to try out Noah in the BOB!
