Jogging strollers rock
Now that everyone is feeling better, we finally got a chance to use the jogging stroller a few days ago. It's awesome!!!
We live on a main road that sadly lacks sidewalks for about 1/2 in front of our house, which means off-roading 1/4 mil... Read more
Sidelined by a headcold. Take 2.
So right after I made my last post I got a head cold and we had a major drop in temperatures up here in New England. I've pretty much stayed in doors since the new years (I'm a stay-at-home mom with a 9 week old).
Baby and I are both fee... Read more
Back to training
I've finally started the post-baby training for the January 2013 Disney half marathon. I've done two training sessions on the road - one with baby & stroller, one without. Without is 2minutes per mile faster! And adding the ~40 pounds of push... Read more
Losing the baby weight
I'm not actively trying to lose the baby weight as I'm desperately trying to increase my milk supply (an ongoing issue). But despite not trying, and Thanksgiving + leftovers, I'm down 18 pounds in less than 4 weeks! That's half the baby weight... Read more

Back in the Garden
Between the month of rain we've had, the pulled back and the pregnancy, I haven't been int he garden at all this year, and it's been driving me nuts.
Today I spent two hours out there with my mom and dad, who were helping me weed my poor, n... Read more
Loved the wedding
As a former, albeit temporary, London, I had to watch the wedding this morning. And it was worth it!
Kate, of course, looked like a princess but what I found very touching was how happy Will and Kate looked together. The moment at the e... Read more

Good food can be "diet" food
I hear a lot of people complain about diet food and about eating like rabbits while trying to lose weight.
What are these people thinking? Here's what I'm eating this week, with calories per meal, and no salads in sight:

The Bright Side of Sleet
My plan for a couple of "miles" on the elliptical, got quashed by chores and work, but we do have to shovel the driveway before all this sleet freezes, so I'm looking on the bright side - it's cardio! And one hell of an arm workout at that!... Read more
The project from hell is nearly done
I've had this awful project for work that took over my life in December because my client wanted to launch January 3rd. I moved the earth and sky to be ready by their date... and they weren't. I FINALLY have what I need from them, or at least ... Read more
~3 hours, 19 inches, and one mangled set of Christmas lights later, our driveway is clear and we are watching a DVR'd episode of Castle with Chris nursing a bruised arm and the cat velcro-d to my lap.
Oh, and sipping on a well-earned beer!... Read more
