It Felt so Good to be Back

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

I finally went to the gym after 6 weeks on Monday, and it felt so good! I got up early so that Chanse could watch Rosalie before he had to go to school. I knew that it was going to be hard, but I tried to keep a positive attitude and just do the best that I could :) I did some strength training, and then I went for a 2.5 mile treadmill run. Running always has been and always will be my favorite type of cardio and exercise overall, but I know that it is so important to incorporate strength training of some sort, so I try my best. Even if I have to force myself at times haha.
 It was so good to come home to Rose :)

As you can see I ran my 2.5 miles pretty slow, but I was just happy to have run them at all ha!

Her little outfit doesn't match because she had a little accident on her original onesie, but isn't her double chin so cute?!

Chanse and Rose touching their "twin" noses haha. Rosalie has the EXACT same nose as Chanse and I love it!

It was so good to have Chanse come home after a long day at school.  Rose and I sure missed him!

I got up this morning early again to go to the gym, and boy was I tired haha. Rosalie didn't want to sleep last night, so my body just wanted to stay in bed. But, I am so so so glad that I went, and I felt great when I was done. 

My gym has a Cardio Cinema that plays movies and I love to run in there. I will normally just crank my music up and watch the movie while I read the subtitles. I also love that it is dark in the cardio cinema because I can zone out and just focus on my run. I did 4 miles, and once again ran them at a pretty slow piace. I'm not going to lie, they were super hard for me! I know that it is going to take me a while to pick up my pace and get back into shape, but I am totally okay with this. I just remind myself that it took me a while to build up the level of fitness that I was at before I had Rose, and I know I can do it again if I put in the time and effort. 

 I love my Brooks Pure Flow running shoes because they give my high arches a lot of support.

I just had to post a pic of this little cutie. She is so wide eyed and awake today.

She also loves to be held ha, so this is how I eat my lunch most days. She definitely keeps me on my toes ;)

I hope you all are having a great day!
What is your favorite type of cardio?
