Postpartum Update- 6 Weeks: Ready, Set, Run!

Well, I officially hit the 6 weeks postpartum mark! It seems like such a blur. On the one hand, I can’t believe my baby girl is six weeks old already. On the other, I can’t believe I’ve survived six weeks of being a mom!

One thing I want to do now that I’m a mom and my body seems to know it is start running again! I ran a half marathon 10 years ago and loved the experience of training and the race itself was so much fun!

That was a decade and a baby ago, though. So, chances are it isn’t going to be anything like it was before. But, I’m still going to try.

My goal: There’s a ½ marathon at Disney that I want to participate in! There are a couple, actually. My first choice was the Wine and Dine, but that one is already full, so I’m thinking about trying the Princess one. It’s not until February 2020, so I should have more than enough time… Hopefully…

WISH ME LUCK!

The Best Thing I Did for My Body and Mind During My Pregnancy

Being pregnant can take its toll on you mentally as much as it can physically. There’s a lot going on! Hormones are flying everywhere; your body is changing completely. During my pregnancy, I wanted to make sure that I was keeping myself “in shape” both mentally and physically. Here’s how I did it.

Being pregnant can take its toll on you mentally as much as it can physically. There’s a lot going on! Hormones are flying everywhere; your body is changing completely. You’re crying one minute, laughing the next (one time, I even cried and laughed at the same time).

While I wasn’t the best at eating healthy all the time and I think I only went to the gym once (and I was only there for 15 minutes), I did still want to make sure that I was keeping myself “in shape” both mentally and physically during my pregnancy.
