Still feeling it.

My monkey working on this walking thing.
Okay so it's been a week since I did my half-marathon and honestly I'm still feeling it. I have done two small hill training runs this week (meaning I did my hill run that is 4.6km twice) and I can feel it in my legs when I'm running. Overall I'm feeling great, my legs work when I run, my lungs have no problems (even in today's cold weather) and I still have the half-marathon high. My husband can't believe it that my race was only last weekend. I enjoyed my four day rest period and now this week I'm going to kick things up a notch and then take my first day back at work off. I can't believe that I am going to be back at work on Friday. I am looking forward to going back to the office so I can show off the skinny new me and wear all my pretty new clothes but I'm going to miss my cuddle time with my baby. So now I'm trying to teach my hubby to do all the things that I do with her. And honestly he is doing a great job so that makes going back a lot easier, but she is so close to walking and I'm sad that she will likely walk while I'm at work and I'll miss it.

On a funny side my baby made me laugh so hard yesterday. Her little face was covered in chocolate and she managed to smear it all over her pants and shirt and then she crawled into the tipped over laundry basket and sat there looking at me, almost as if to say "I'm dirty and need to be washed." It was hilarious. It's moments like these that I am going to miss when I'm back at work!

Stay tuned for later this week when I publish a recipe for Mushroom, Bean and Barley soup we created this weekend and it is AMAZING!!

  1. Thank you for your encouraging words!!!

    It is hars to believe that you are going back to work already...what a quick year but if your husband gets to stay home for a while that is great for you all. How long is home with Lily for?

    You will have post some pics of you in the new skinny clothes.

    Those last few pounds you want to lose may drop off after you are done nursing the least that is what I have heard before...never really researched the facts around it though.

    Blessings to you!
