Yep, I actually did have that ice cream sandwich after I posted my blog. It added another 130 calories to the day, so I was at 1,407 for the day, which was still the low end of my range. And I woke up today feeling really hungry for the first ti... Read more
So, I had to laugh when everyone lauded my meals yesterday. My freezer is always full so I always have a protein handy even when I haven't been to the supermarket, but I am literally running on fumes in my fridge. I had a bunch of hummus and st... Read more
I skipped my race on Sunday morning. I wish I had a good excuse. I was sick, Keira was sick, blah blah. But the truth is, I just didn't feel like it. I wanted to sleep in and take a long bath. As someone told me on Facebook when I revealed it "N... Read more
April has been going well so far. The weather has made it so I'm running and walking almost every single day (except this week - stupid weather and stupid work!) and I'm down about 5 lbs this month (finally!). I exceeded my fitness minute goal a... Read more
I had a good month exercise-wise with 1,220 fitness minutes. I can run about 2.5 miles at a time and I'm running 2-3 times per week. I completed a 5K in 41 minutes. I'm taking Keira out for walks almost every day. I only lost three pounds and my... Read more
Well I finished Week 5 of C25K and it went well! Definitely finding it easier this go-around, so I'm glad that all of my fitness didn't disappear during my pregnancy. Immediately after the 20-minute run, I started feeling sniffly and that turned... Read more
I'm still around, and I still read blogs and friend feed though I don't always have time to comment. I'm mostly on the other website right now ( www.chunkyrunner.com ) and I am on another fitness website with a great iPhone app fo... Read more

2. Restart C25K this month

My daughter (man, feels weird to say and type that!) Keira Elizabeth was born on December 22, 2011 at 11:27pm, weighing in at 7lb 10oz and measuring 19 inches. Here's how she got here!
I was antsy during Thursday morning so I decided to hel... Read more
Less than a week til my due date! It's really hit home that she could be with us any day now, but yes, it is kind of annoying that I don't know what Christmas has in store this year: Will I be in the hospital? At home waiting it out? Or at home ... Read more
Here we go, the nursery is finally complete! All that is left is hanging her name over her crib and this will be her little space. I don't consider myself a very "decoratory" kind of person, but I saw the crib bedding set and drew inspiration fr... Read more
Lil' K is due in 2 weeks!
I got laid off from the firm last week, so I am DONE with temporary contract work. I didn't get the news until 10pm on Wednesday night, and I was so excited I couldn't sleep! Again, I'm grateful I was able to use t... Read more
Yesterday was my last day at work. Yes, I know I said I'd quit before the end of November, but I decided to be patient and wait to be laid off in order to be eligible for unemployment benefits. The last couple of weeks have been tiring and frust... Read more
