It’s been over a month….

….since I last posted. It’s so weird but obviously you all understand. One can’t write a running blog without running ;)

I can't run

I can’t run

I’ve been busy walking with Rex and hanging with the family. I rarely update the fb page (but at least you’ll know if I post) but I do post on instagram :)

I was looking back at some of my old posts and noticed that I never could successfully start running in the cold winter months. I had to start in the spring and continue on till winter. Because by then you’re addicted and you’ll be crazy and run outside and not care that all your eyelashes are freezing off ;)

Yes, I am balding….I hate postpartum life.

I’ve just become obsessed with being a mom and truth be told I haven’t really figured out how to include my own time in that equation. However for those interested this is what I’ve been doing most days…..

I’m super into babywearing b/c it makes life with two children much easier and keeps Hudson close while allowing me both hands!

Yay! I'm a kangaroo

I bought a soft-structure carrier, a beco soleil, which I adore however I think their companies customer service sucks and I wouldn’t recommend them at all! I am seriously so disappointed in them. Thankfully the retailer I bought it from is AMAZING – feel free to check them out if you’re local

we can even pee together

The beco has been great for Logan’s swimming, the doctors, groceries or whatever else we do that is quick and easier than luging an infant seat around :) ….it also works great for vacuuming ;)

he passed right out on my back. It was amazing

I also purchased a beautiful girasol woven wrap and there is NO other carrier that is as versitile or as comfortable. I love it. Learning all the carry’s keeps me busy and I love it and so does Hudson.

Even Logan loves it….

Logan got jealous and wanted to try it. Held his weight no problem!

So I’ve using the Kong and hope to get him more food puzzles, he’s back on the tready again and we’ve been walking every other day. (Colin is SUPPOSED to do it the other days)….cough* COLIN* cough

ice walking is a workout

I opted not to run b/c my pelvic joints hurt even after a long walk so for now I’m taking things slow and I’m ok with that. I’ll just wear babies instead ;)

I’ve really fallen off the clean eating train and have even resorted to eating ice cream out of the container. This is what my life has become. lol

mmmmmmm nothing makes life better like Neapolitan

Logan doesn’t help…..he’s such an enabler…

he even enables my cloth diaper addiction by saying that we NEED all the colours

I have been meeting a lot of cool moms who also cloth diaper and such and it really makes me wish I was more social when Logan was born. I bet I’d have a lot more mom friends now if I had tried more ;) …and cloth diapered bc here’s a bunch of us at a release party. (Yes, we are that nerdy that we celebrate new diaper patterns)

Mom, get your hair and face outta here

I haven’t been keeping up with your blogs on purpose because I find anyone talking about running to depress me. So for that I apologize but it just hurts me too much to see everyone loving their running lives, hopefully I’ll be there soon :) I still love you though :)

Logan and I are just into video games and playing with Rex. I think we’re both over winter though at least we got to do some awesome winter type activities this year like building a snowman, sledding and ice skating

I’ll just be happy when spring is here and I can resume hiking, jogging and outdoor cycling. I plan to start adding in workouts on my stationary bike this week. I really need to make time for myself to workout again!!

and just because….I love that Logan loves to wear ponytails :)

Does anyone have any strength workout plans?? I really need a calendar, a program, some motivation. PLEASE HELP! 

Is being a mom enough? sometimes I don’t know how I’ll ever fit in more! 

does anyone else have a winter sweet tooth??? I feel like I always crave sweets and cold treats in winter….so odd!
