I have been absent for some time but that's going to change. In my absence, I have continued to run and did my first 10K at Thanksgiving. I finished it in just over a hour and I was so proud of myself. I was motivated to keep moving but due to the weather and time change, I don't really have any daylight hours when I don't have the kids to run. It's been frustrating. Because of it, I haven't run since the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I haven't hit the gym either :(

I am disappointed in myself so I am going to do something about it... unfortunately my schedule doesn't allow for me to get to the gym until Wednesday, I think. So that's when I am planning to go.

I think I've figured out the difference between working out after D and after M. It's the rowing machine. I hit that thing for 30 minutes 2-3 times a week after D's birth (in WI). Our gym (in CA) does not have a rowing machine so I haven't done it after M's birth like I did after D's birth. I truly think that's why I haven't slimmed down as quick... the rowing machine is more than a cardio machine, it engages the abs and back muscles and that is where I am seeing the lack of progress. I am going to request the gym add a rowing machine and will keep my eyes out for one on Craigslist. They are expensive but so worth it. In the meantime, I think I am going to hit the cardio in crazy amounts.

    Raising kids makes taking time for yourself much more difficult. Just remeber you don't have to do everything, and you also don't have to do everything right. It will get easier. Glenn
