March update

I feel like a March update is easier if I break this down into sections, so... Shopping/Parenting (which don't go together at all, but roll with it, ok?) Sunday felt like spring. The air was all sunshine, soft breezes and bird songs. Also, we were home, doing nothing because Sweet Pea was sick. Puking, avoiding the birthday party and the get-together with friends we were supposed to attend sick. I did sneak out to Pearl Street in the afternoon with Lady Bug to enjoy some fresh air and … [Continue reading...]

Random February Stuff

February February has historically been a good month for me. February is the month in which... -I ran my first marathon (Myrtle Beach, 2001) -I met Dan (Valentine's Day, 2008) -We closed on our house (2010) -Sweet Pea was born (2012) Birthdays, Books, and Clothes It feels like Sweet Pea was born yesterday. And suddenly I'm drowning in my baby's Hello Kitty birthday party supplies. While searching for Hello Kitty stuff on Amazon, a book called "Hello Kitty Must Die" popped up and I had … [Continue reading...]

Prairie Dog 10k Race Report

Prairie Dog 10k

When I found out I was pregnant with Sweet Pea in June 2011, my first thought was "Yay!" My second thought was, "Shit, this is not going to be the summer I break 47 minutes in the 10k." I was right. I spent that summer being bloated and nauseated as a little human began to grow inside me. I didn't know then that I would eventually break 47 minutes, five and a half years later. It turns out, that's not as long of a time as it sounds like. How is my baby starting kindergarten in the fall??? (A … [Continue reading...]

Name Your Demons

In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brene Brown suggests silencing the voices in your head—the ones trying squelch your greatness—by naming them. I went a step further.  *         *         * I'm old Aggie. You know how in a dream, someone's someone but they look just like someone else's cousin or whatever? Well, my name is old Aggie and I look just like Nancy Kleinfeld*. that horrible lady your parents left you with for a week in the fifth grade. Honestly, I don't know why they did that either. I … [Continue reading...]

Coffee Date January 2017

Can we do coffee again? (I don't know about you but I had a lot of fun last time). Are you on Instagram? I'm on Instagram. We should follow each other if we're not already following each other. Or we shouldn't... depends if you want to see all my fitness posts... My plan is for my posts to be 80-90% fitness-related and the other 10-20% for randomness. Let's face it, randomness probably means the hilarity and craziness of having kids. Also, I'm going to try really hard not to let it become an … [Continue reading...]

Workout Wednesday | Diastasis Recti: What is it? (Part 1)

*disclaimer: I’m not a physician or a medical professional with specific training in pelvic floor and women’s health. Do not begin a postpartum exercise program before consulting with a physical or occupational therapist with advanced skills in pelvic floor therapy and women’s health. “That’s not really a thing. It sounds like maybe it’s just, like, a Boulder thing.” That’s what my sister said when I told her about my diastasis recti, right after my second child was born. But it really is … [Continue reading...]

Best Books I Read in 2016

I read 49 books this year. You can see them all on my Goodreads Profile if you like. I'm pretty sure you can find me on Goodreads (which I am obsessed with) though my email address—pam.sinel(at)gmail.com. Here are my ten favorites in no particular order. Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler I loved Danler's voice. The way she describes mundane moments, including details about the quality of the light, or the smell in the air, is almost poetic, and does an incredible job of putting the reader … [Continue reading...]

There is Such Thing as a Dumb Question

They say there are no dumb questions. They are wrong. (Side note: Who are they??) There are, in fact, many dumb questions. I know because I ask them more often than Kim Kardashian posts a selfie. In the spirit of conscious parenting and minimizing the urge to stab myself with a Lego, I’ve composed a list of dumb questions to stop asking my kids. 1) Are you ready to go? Before asking this question, assess the situation. Are the child’s shoes on? Has the child gone to the bathroom? … [Continue reading...]
