Running is my number one, but over the past year I’ve realized that I’ve been fairly one-dimensional in terms of fitness. After my knee injury, exploring other ways to work out has been a fun/grueling adventure, and that’s what this part of the blog is about.

Fitness Friday: Working Out with a Baby

This morning before checking into work, I did something a little different. Instead of trying to go for a run or do a workout, I decided to go get a coffee (because it’s National Coffee Day!!). A pumpkin spice latte

Fitness Friday: The Journey Back into Running

Happy Friday! A couple weeks after giving birth, I started going for walks and doing an easy Pilates workout. The walks were solo at first- usually just a “clearing my head” after sitting on the couch with an insatiable baby

Fitness Friday: It’s All Connected

Nothing exciting to report on the baby front…she’s still hanging in there at 38 weeks. Last night/this morning I started getting shooting pain down my hip/inner thigh while walking, so I think she’s finally found a nerve to nestle on!

Fitness Friday: When You’re In a Rush After Working Out

Another week! Hit 37 weeks yesterday, which means we are officially out of “preterm” land and into “early term” (which apparently translates into “she’s pretty much cooked but it’d be better if she waited another 2 weeks). Of course, I’m

The Obsession with Post-Partum

Happy Friday! We just hit 36 weeks, or the 9th month! This means that most of Baby Z’s more important systems are just about finished up, and she’s pretty much just going to chill/grow until she’s ready to head out

Fitness Friday: My Experience with PRP

35 weeks! The panic/excitement is still growing quite a bit. I finally finished using all of my Honest Co. Belly Balm (I’m surprised it’s lasted so long- 5 months- considering the surface area it’s been covering), and decided to go

Staying Entertained During a Workout & YOUR Feedback!

Happy Hump Day! Pretty exciting week so far- on Monday night I got to bake (not something I do typically just because it’s been so hot lately and I’m milking the whole but guys I’m super pregnant thing). The MDI YWCA hosts

Fitness Friday: Taking It Easy

Happy Friday! As local readers are aware, this week was pretty hot and a little muggy (you know, summer…). While my skin LOVES this weather, the rest of me (especially the super pregnant parts) are not digging it. The result-

Fitness Friday: Things I’ve Learned from an Iffy Year of Running

Before getting into today’s topic, a few housekeeping things. I just made a new Affiliate page, where you can check out all the cool businesses I’m working with (there’s two right now). As I mention on that page, I love

Thoughts on Running a Challenge Group

Happy late Father’s Day! I spent most of the weekend with both of my parents, and did some baby organizing (more on that later this week). Saturday was spent in Milbridge doing the usual work stuff. For a workout I
