I did nothing when I got home. I don't mean I sat on my butt and watched the evening go by, but I didn't do any workouts yesterday... and I'm okay with that.
I think I got the mental health break I've been needing. I got home late because I had stopped at a friend's house. My husband had dinner on the table, baby was fed and asleep. We ate dinner in silence.
The baby was still asleep after dinner, so my husband and I got in bed and watched TV and chatted. We have been watching the original Mission Impossible episodes and the original Hawaii 5-0 episodes. We talked, we laughed, he tickled me, I scratched his back. It was so nice to have adult interaction that didn't consist of "where are you going to be today? did you have any flights? how many poopy diapers did the baby have? blah blah blah blah blah"
I woke the baby up to feed her around 10PM and she sat with us on the bed and cooed and giggled until she fell asleep around 11. I really enjoy her new found awake and not fussy time. Just a pleasant evening.
Stormy here today. I have a workout date planned with my workout buddy, Jamie. She found out she's 11 weeks pregnant and everything is looking good so far. I'm praying for her. I'm worried if the storm keeps up, the base will close the pool and she and I won't be able to swim. Lots of lightning on my commute this morning.
Anyway, have a wonderful day friends!
Love and hugs to all of you,

I was good on my nutrition. I ran a shorter distance than I wanted to. I underestimated the distance from the heritage center to the house. I will know for next time. Did the SP mat workout.
So far, so good today. Of course, I am at the office, so there is no temptation to eat bad (its out in the middle of nowhere). However, being motivated to workout when I get home is the tough part after not seeing the baby all day. I have to remember I'm doing this for her too. Even if its just the bike trainer for 20 minutes, I will do something!

Wish I could say I'm happy about this, but I GAINED 10 pounds... it can't be all muscle mass.
I'm using this setback as a way to regain focus (although I don't feel like I lost it... I'm a little confused how this happened). I'm following my meal plan to the letter for the next two weeks. Period, end of story. Ideally, I do 12 workouts per week... my goal this week is to complete 10 of them.
I'm trying to not let this get me down. I just can't believe I weigh 190 pounds. :/
45 pounds to go...

I'm not sure what to do with myself today. I have no plans. I'm thinking about seeing if there are any appointments at the spa I go to. I have a 50 dollar gift card and would love a... well... anything... manicure, pedicure, hair cut, whatever.
I've been so disciplined with my workouts... not so much with my eating even though I'm staying within my calorie ranges.
Maybe I can use these next two "no plans" days to regain my focus on nutrition and still have a little fun.
Have a great weekend folks,

My best friend hooked me up with a friend of hers that just moved to Morgantown and we have since become workout buddies. She doesn't run, but is super fit. She's a cyclist, swimmer, etc. Also, she's a mom to a 14 month old and is expecting her second. She gives me a lot of advice, both parenting and fitness.
We were on our way back from the pool last night and had a very interesting conversation. We have similar eating habits, to which I was very surprised considering she's stick thin (even while she's pregnant!) and I'm well, not. I never have been and probably never will be. We talked about trigger foods, junk food, etc. Here were some of the things that we both "suffer" from:
- we both love junk food (the types of junk food vary between she and I, but we both love our junk!)
-we both know that there are certain things we just shouldn't eat because we will go overboard. Better to not start at all then to start and not be able to stop.
-our families both have a history of addiction (interesting)
It was nice to relate to someone on this level.
We are trying to plan a walk with strollers for this afternoon, but the weather may not cooperate. keep your fingers crossed!!
