Getting back into pre-pregnancy shape!

May 2011:
So, I had a beautiful baby boy on April 9,2011. He is the best thing that ever happened to me, along with meeting my husband. I have struggled with the first 6 weeks of being a mommy, at first with a lot of anxiety and depression paired with sleeplessness and sporadic eating. The past few days I have felt more balanced and Dominic is sleeping more regularly. However, I do have about 25 pounds to lose, and I am ready to get on it!

So, I had a beautiful baby boy on April 9,2011. He is the best thing that ever happened to me, along with meeting my husband. I have struggled with the first 6 weeks of being a mommy, at first with a lot of anxiety and depression paired with sleeplessness and sporadic eating. The past few days I have felt more balanced and Dominic is sleeping more regularly. However, I do have about 25 pounds to lose, and I am ready to get on it! He deserves to have a beautiful and healthy mommy who has tons of energy to keep up with him as he grows and changes.


Nov 2010:
I am pregnant with my first child and due in April 2011. So for now, the focus is on keeping up with yoga, hiking and walking daily while still functioning well at all four of my jobs! I have had to up my calories significantly to support the growth if my lil' angel, and my exercise has been reduced from the crazy amount I was doing previously. All worth it! I do look forward to getting back to running and my size 8 really cute clothes, though! All good things in all good time......


Spring 2010:
I have recently come into a peaceful acceptance of myself as a woman, wife, teacher, daughter, friend, and a proud, committed human being. I have worked very hard to learn how to take care of myself physically, mentally, and spiritually, and it is a constant journey. I appreciate all of the support and inspiration that is shared on Sparkpeople, and hope that I can continue to pay it forward in my own every day life. Thanks for stopping by my page, and I wish you all health, hope, and happiness!

Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second-William James

"May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

My Goals:
To run a 10K this summer after not running since before pregnancy!

I met my goal of running 1,100 miles in 2009!

I was hoping to run a half- marathon in 2010, but after a car accident set me back in February, I am simply shooting for 700 miles run and a half in the summer of 2011!




My Program:


Walk every day

Yoga as much as possible

Work back up to running

Personal Information:
I live in the mountains of Colorado, I'm very happily married to the kindest and hottest man on earth, and we have a beautiful baby boy, Dominic, as of 4/9/11.


Other Information:
I love drinking wine, music, healthy cooking, reading great books, hiking, sparking(of course), and reading fitness magazines. I would love to one day write for one.
