First, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all of your comments yesterday. You helped me out a ton and I feel a lot better after hearing everyone’s different experiences. l love that we can talk so openly about things because now I know it is pretty normal to not feel great (luckily, my doctor gave me anti-nausea medicine to use for the next 15 days and I’ll see where I’m at after that and let you know) for awhile and that things should improve (and if they don’t—> to get that IUD ((PS I have the Mirena)) out right away. THANK YOU! Also, I have a list of about 6 different methods that I want to try if what I’m currently doing doesn’t work in the future. It has been over 4 years since I had any hormones in me and I think my body is just going nuts trying to figure it all out for a month or two (I hope;).
Babysitting plans fell through yesterday morning so I had another treadmill run and Josse will be joining me on my long run this morning instead. She is recovering from her 1/2 Ironman and marathon recently so a nice and slow pace is perfect for her too. You just gotta fit the long run in when you can sometimes.
Brooke’s sandals. They just make me extremely happy. I get her shoes from Old Navy and these are my new favorites.
We had some celebrating to get done yesterday with the girls so first we had 180 Tacos.
Did I ever tell you about the time Megan and I got sick at this restaurant and then we didn’t eat here for approximately 8 months afterwards. Luckily, somebody convinced us to go back a little while ago and we are addicted again. Salad and soup for the win.
And then we had our nails done next door. Running has forced two of my toenails to disappear but the nail place always makes it look like I have them again. (PS I like to get gel nails when I get them done because they last for weeks and weeks that way)
Brooke found a new hiding spot at my parents’ house which she was pretty excited about.
Jeans in the summer… yeah, I have no idea what in the world I was thinking yesterday. I was sweating 98% of the day but too lazy to change.
Once Andrew was off work we all went out together. Brooke made sure to bring her dog on the leash and she wouldn’t let it off the leash while we were outside.
While Knox was on Andrew’s shoulders he reached down to give me a head scratch. Made my day.
Blending a family sure has a lot of different factors going into it but I’m really excited about what we have going on so far and how well everyone involved is doing. Let’s just cross every finger and toe possible that things stay like this;)
Brooke sampled my horchata yesterday and she loved it and finished off the rest of mine.
We then ran a ton of errands and ended up on the grass while the kids ran a few miles.
I’m really hoping that this morning I have the same physical ‘arms up in the air because I feel so good running’ experience that Brooke did yesterday.
We also got to hang out with a border collie lab mix and
and a labradoodle while we were outside before going back to Andrew’s chocolate lab. Remember how I went on and on for months about how bad I wanted a dog… she will be my new running/everything/life buddy soon.
I showed you Brooke’s outfit for the wedding and we received Knox’s outfit yesterday! He will be the ring bearer and best man and Brooke has her flower girl basket (which she has been practicing with) all ready too.
It’s going to be an early morning today so I can finish up my long run before Brooke wakes up. I’m glad that I have all of Josse’s amazing stories to look forward to and some sunshine… remember how waking up early to run during the winter is a million times harder because of how dark it is outside? Getting up early to run is also a lot easier during the summer because the sooner you get out there, the cooler it is and the less time you are running and sweating to death. Procrastinating a run during the summer does not help matters… Although, Josse and I are planning to run twice a week when pre-school starts next month during the hot hours so we can be prepared for a warm day at the St. George Marathon… and if it isn’t a warm day at the marathon, at least we will be prepared and used to conquering the miles with heat. Win-win right?
I’m going to most definitely remember this article—> Use Your Mind to Restore Your Body After a Run after the run + some chocolate milk + an ice bath.
What month(s) is it easiest for you to get up and out the door for a run? How do you balance your running in with life most effectively?
Last restaurant you got sick?! Will you ever go back?
Lost a toenail from running ever?
What are the temps and humidity levels like right now where you are at?
