For some reason I have REALLY not been motivated to get out there and run.  I know myself well enough to know that as one skipped run turns into 2 which turns into 3 and so on.  But with a new baby I have these small windows of time between feedings, and other things call my name first-- sleep, email, clean, eating or fixing a meal, a shower. 

I had my 6 week appointment today and had actually gained a pound since my 2 week appointment.  I wasn't surprised by that either.  I don't do the running around like I did before a baby, on top of this exercise motivation issue.

So, there you have it.  Wanted to admit it to the blog world. 

Now that I still don't have the motivation to run today and it is a running day-- I am going for a walk in this next block of time.

Hope my dear readers are doing well and you are having more motivation than me-- especially knowing this nice weather will soon turn into cold days with more dark hours-- I better get my booty in gear!

Running Solo

I have been able to make it out a few times without the kiddo.  As much as I love the boy, its nice to get out alone and not focus on pushing a stroller, or if the sun is in his eyes, etc. 

On Sunday I had the pleasure to be back out with my running buddy (my stepdad) for a three-mile run.  It was a bit chilly (not complaining!) and a very pleasant run.  It was nice to be back out and start training again with him although he is WAY ahead in mileage and speed-- he is doing a marathon in another couple weeks.

Baby boy is doing pretty well and will be 6 weeks old tomorrow.  Time is flying by way too fast and I keep looking down at him and he is changing and growing up on me.  Sniff.

Here is picture of little man for the interested.  He is smiling more and more each day... love it!! And I do (eventually plan to put up his birth story when I get time to type it out!!)
