So today my baby was a sweet little fussy baby all day and it started to wear me out a little bit. My husband had to work late because he had to take my dog to the vet in the morning, since the baby needed me, and we ate dinner together, and it was already after 8pm. I took the baby and he ran on the treadmill first, while I snuggled Lillian, changed her, fed her and put her to bed Steve ran. As he was finishing I was coming out of the nursery and Lillian was sleeping like an angel. For the first time in a few nights she went to bed peacefully and it was a pleasure.
Once he was done it was my turn. I wasn't sure if I could do it since it was 10pm and I was tired but I told myself that I'm a mom now and I can't always do things when I want or how I want because mom's don't get a choice. So I sucked it up and ran late at night (it also meant I could keep my breastmilk in the fridge and not have to use it. I pump it to use but for some silly reason I hate to use it up. I think I just don't like having none in the fridge.) and I did amazing! I managed to run 8.0 miles, in 1 hour 44 minutes and burned 1124 calories and I can say that while my treadmill stops at 99 minutes the calories go to four digets. I'm excited that I got to find out our treadmill hits four digets in calories and broke the 8 miles marker.
So while my legs feel like jello and I will probably have to take a day of rest tomorrow, I feel alive and almost as if I could fly! Life couldn't be better for my little family right now and I'm loving every minute.
