I love being a mom

I love love love being a mom. It is hard to juggle my old life and my new one. One thing is for sure when I have time to run I give it my all because its the only shot I have. Even when I rarely have slept longer then 2-3 hours at a time. Baby eats like clockwork every 3 hours even through the night. Occasionally I will get a 4 hour stretch maybe 2 times a week. I think I am doing pretty good considering my situation. I just use that time to really give thanks for all the blessings we have experienced. Up to 5 and 1 and next week go to 7 and 1 and up to 4km.

Slow but steady

This week is 5 minutes of running and 1 of walking. Its getting easier and easier one run at a time. Patience...This week baby is 11 weeks old. He's not sleeping any longer at a time so 12, 3, 6, 9 through the night is wearing on me but I continue to focus on eating right, napping and exercise. I walk every day its nice out. Sometimes twice. Sadly its been raining a lot :( baby loves walks.

This week

This week I am running 4 minutes and walking 1 minute. So far so good. Taking it easy after a small sxcare with my knees. Some massage therapy seemed to do the trick. Having a 14lb child that loves eating all the time was wearing on me too. He loves to eat every 3 hours or less 24/7 :). It's been crazy weather here from snow to hail and tropically warm. So strange! Can't wait for my 5km race at the end of May. I see the goal ahead. Only 20 more pounds to lose.

Stay at Home Mommy

In my dreams....I have less then 10 months to figure out how I can stay at home with baby or family plan to only have to go back for a year to work then be off with another baby. Therefore extending my time to figure out how to stay off a little longer. Now that he's here, I don't want to go back to work EVER. Running has been postponed this week due to a very bad pain in both knees. Took it easy, went for a massage and walked a lot. Hoping to get out Wednesday night with the group for a session of 3 minutes walking and 1 minute walking. I think that the nice weather will help my knee feel better. Baby is still up 1-2 times in the night and I have yet to get more then 3 hours of sleep at a time. No complaints - I thank God every single day for making us parents to this amazing boy :)

I got a much needed massage. Most days I feel like I still got hit by a bus :) Baby is doing so well and growing so fast. It's kinda sad. I visited my work today with him and left depressed I have to go back in 10 short months from now. I thought running changed my life but he changed it some much more.

Knee pain

So after a 4km today I can't walk. The pain inside my knees is unreal. I can't go up and down stairs, can barely lift anything or get out of bed. I have no clue what the problem is. I can only think its my shoes at this point and need to warm up better. I have super intense stability shoes for the distances I was runnng before. Maybe I just don't need them right now?

Running is the easy part

My husband watches baby the three times a week I run. Running has become the easy part. Currently we walk/run 3-4 kms a time. So far so good. Loving it and really enjoying the slow start. Weather is great. Having a baby to take care of is hard. No sleep is hard. No freedom is hard. He is only 7 weeks so we are still sorting ourselves out I think. He also has trush in his mouth poor guy :(
