I’m finally crawling out of the deep abyss of sleep deprivation and showering once every few days. I wish that showering part was a joke, but it’s not.
I’ve been consistently training at least four days per week and am going to add a fifth day soon. Things are a little tricky right now because Emma’s limit is about an hour in the BOB, which means I can just about get in 8 miles on weekdays. I’d like to be able to do at least one longer run during the week, and I’m hoping once we switch to having her sit upright (facing out) versus in the infant carseat adapter she’ll be able to see more and want to stay in the stroller longer. We’re going to try an easy run on Saturday and see how she likes it.
Here’s a short list of new and exciting things happening in our world:
First solid foods: rice cereal, oatmeal, fruits, and veggies!
Making baby food (way easier than I thought it would be)
Finally starting Emmaline on cloth diapers (New Years resolution!)
Reading about baby development (the concept of object permanence blows my mind)
Emmaline squealing and rolling over (hilarious, at least to me)
Sleep… She’s been sleeping until 8 instead of 5:30 which feels fantastic.
Finding creative ways to save money while I’m not working… It’s incredible how much money we were wasting on things we totally don’t need (cable, Whole Foods, Starbucks, etc.)
Trying to stay off social media and live in the moment… most of the time.
What are you training for this spring? Any thoughts on social media overload?
