Nathaniel is waking up from his nap ever slowly, so I'll quickly take the opportunity to update you on my post-baby progress.
First order of business, I have lost 7 pounds since I was at the doctor's office. Sure some of that is that I don't wear clothes and shoes when I weigh myself at home, but I am confident my weight is trending downward and that's all I really want. Plus, this is corroborated by the one pair of non-maternity jeans I own that fit me now--they are getting looser every day. Still can't even fit into my prepregnancy fat clothes, but soon! So, I have 17 pounds to pre-pregnancy weight and 22 lbs to race weight. Sounds a lot better than 24 and 29!
Last week was as follows:
M: 4 miles outside with no watch while my mom watched N.
T: off--had an appt in the evening and it was too much to try to squeeze a run in too.
W: 4 miles on the treadmill. I didn't log the pace--probably around 9:40
Th: 4.25 on the mill (9:36 pace)
F: 3.6 miles crammed in while N napped. I wanted to do 4 but he woke up a little early. I forgot to log the pace of this run too!
Sa: 4 miles on the treadmill while my mom watched N. She had to go at 3 miles but N hung out and watched me from his blanket on the floor while I got in one more! (9:35 pace)
Su: 6 miles outside with GP! Felt great and we even conquered some megahills. No watch. I actually have lost both of my watches :(
Total: a hair shy of 26 miles for the week.
In other news, mrp and I arew contemplated a big change. I think I am going to start looking for alternatives to my current job. I am really struggling with the idea of going back to a full time inflexible job. I love being at home with Nathaniel, more and more so every day. I can't imagine both mrp and I only getting to see him for a couple of hours a day. I definitely want to pursue my career in the future, but for now I am really thinking about quitting and finding something part time. I just need to make enough to cover my student loan payments and groceries pretty much. If anyone has any advice in this area, please share! We are in full-on brainstorming mode and could use all the help we can get!!!
