My First Official Workout & Tanner is 2 months old!

Although I’ve been running for about 3 weeks now, today marks the official beginning of my Half Marathon Training in my journey towards a Happier, Healthier, More Fit Me!

My training schedule called for a 4 mile run to be done at race pace.  Despite being awake for a few hours in the middle of the night (after feeding my son), being sore and tired from Sundays Body Attack, and feeling like I’m coming down with a cold, I started my day at the gym and jumped on the treadmill. This workout required some serious internal motivation – I did not feel like running today, and definitely did not feel like doing a fast-for-me 4 miles! I’m not going to lie, I wanted to quit the whole time!!!

But, I did it! Just over 41 minutes later I was done my run! And, honestly, I felt pretty good afterwards. Partially because I’d just run 4 miles, but more because I pushed through the pain and lack of motivation, and in the end, ran a 10:20 mile, not a bad pace for me!

Today also marked my son Tanner’s 2 month birthday! He seriously has to be the cutest and sweetest little boy around! See for yourself! Here are a few of my favorite pics to date.

Oh, and the highlight of my day….my 2 year old pooped in the tub! Awesome!

Such a cutie!

  1. Congrats on the run! Tanner is adorable. Poop in the tub is why I like being a grandma now. I can just have the mom clean that up!

  2. oh crap! Literally. Carter hasn’t done that yet, thank God! Good luck on your goals. I’m sure you’ll be back to your old self in no time. As for reading more, I am with you there, although I am trying to read 40 books this year. I am on book 6, so far so good (although, I am a bit behind meeting my goal at this point, I hope to catch up).

  3. It was the first time Ryan has ever pooped in the tub. I was like…what are you doing…are you pooping? She said no mommy, just tooting! Ya right! At least Tanner wasn’t still in there!
