Day 30: Another pumping win and a quick run

Today got off to an early start, again, not my idea, but I’m not the boss anymore, I suppose. Dan and I decided to switch things up so instead of having a spirited conversation at 3am about what to do about Sweet Pea, which is oh so much fun and does great things for our […]

Mission Accountable Day 23: An Underthing You Won’t Find at Victoria’s Secret

I went to work with a cabbage leaf in my bra. Not just any cabbage leaf; one that I stuffed in hastily in the grocery store parking lot. Let me back up. On Wednesday I made a mental note to confirm with the babysitter for Friday. Wednesday came and went and I was still trying […]

Mission Accountable Day 9: A Day Off

Today I didn’t work out. I generally take one planned rest day per week and this was it. I woke up at 6am anyway, totally disoriented. You know when you stay in a hotel with room darkening shades in a new city and you wake up, and for a minute you’re like “Where am I? […]

Mission Accountable Day 8: A tempo run and finding places to pump

Today I had a tempo run on the schedule. At 6am I hit snooze, but at 6:09 I was out of bed. The only thing that kept me from hitting it a second time was the fact that I have a long run this weekend that I have to do on the treadmill and as […]

Mission Accountable Day 6: A track workout and play group

Today I planned a track workout with a friend. We met at my house at 6:45am and headed over to the high school track by my house. Before having a baby, I would have rolled out of bed around 6:25. With Sweet Pea in the mix, I promptly got up with my alarm at 6:00. […]

Mission Accountable: Day 3

Even God took a day of rest on the seventh day, so I certainly had no qualms about taking a day off today. Yeah, I know today was Saturday, but I’m Jewish, which means we do Sabbath on Saturday, not Sunday. If you see God, please don’t tell Him I worked at the hospital all […]

Day 14 (seriously)

Today is definitely Day 14 of the fitness experiment. I don’t know what happened with the miscounting.  I had some time in the car today. There was no traffic on 36 so I counted out the days in my head (ok, on my fingers) and I am now certain today is the 14th day. Today […]

Day 13

Today is Day 13 of the post-partum fitness experiment. I pushed snooze a mere two times before getting up. While I was drowsing, I heard Robbyn Hart of KBCO talking about some fancy alarm that doesn’t let you press snooze. As in the the snooze button doesn’t exist. She said that in order to turn […]
