Just trying to stay healthy

Life as a working mom is full of challenges, most of which I wouldn't change for the world. But sometimes I'd like more time for myself. I exercise when I can. I've had some setbacks when it comes to running, and I fear I will never get back to where I was pre-pregnancy. But I'm definitely stronger in a lot of ways thanks to yoga, and of course to playing with my big, active toddler.

I also try to eat healthy (although I do have a sweet tooth), and have made a concerted effort ...

I also try to eat healthy (although I do have a sweet tooth), and have made a concerted effort to cook and eat more vegetables so I can set a good example for my family.

Thank you :) He was born on June 25th at 35 weeks. We are thrilled that he is here and I think sometimes I still don't believe it myself :)

Natalie is amazing. She is so much fun, has a huge personality and is super active. What did I ever do with my time before her?

Just stopping by to say hi. I haven't checked out your page in awhile and I miss hearing from you on the Getting Fit Before Baby page (I'm still there as I'm still TTC #2).
Your son is adorable!
