Ask me anything!
I have a 9 month old. 

In other news, I’m at less than my pre-baby weight, but I’ve got flab in places I didn’t have flab before.

So this week starts my new plan. I’m telling tumblr so I might actually stick to it…

The Plan

Mondays and Thursdays - get home at 4:30, nurse, then head out with the baby jogger and run 3 miles minimum down at the beach. Breathe the salty air and let the stress melt away. 

Sundays - squats in the pool during Adelaide’s swim lesson, then long run ALONE when she takes a nap after swim.

Start here, then add in a yoga DVD session on Wednesday nights after bedtime. 

Goals: tone up, shape up, and lessen stress. Also gear up for a stroller 5K in the near future.

Lunches prepped for the next two days. So far, so good on Paleo! These bento boxes actually make easier and more fun!

Happy New Year to You, and Happy Anniversary to Me! →

Happy New Year, Paleo Minions. I hope 2014 turns out to be great for all of you. Yesterday also marks the 4th anniversary of me becoming a caveman! Healthiest 4 years of my life!

To mark the new year, I’d like to reprint one of my more popular articles. One from last new years. I hope it helps…

Good stuff!

Just finished watching Tangled for the 1432875th time.

Hope one day I have a little girl so I can watch it 1432875 more times. <3

I just found this post from 2011…

So excited I can watch Tangled with her 3948584992 times!!

I had a lot of success with Paleo before I got pregnant. I definitely felt like the hardest part was making the time to cook everything and visiting the store for fresh fruits and veggies constantly! But with the right planning, my freezer, and my crock pot, I&#8217;m hoping I can aim for at least an 80/20 split. Because there&#8217;s no way I&#8217;m giving up bagels on the weekend! I felt like it really made me conscious of what was going in my body, and eventually I only craved paleo stuff anyway. I&#8217;ve never felt so good in my life, and I need that back! :)

Paleo Day One

Fail.

I should have known better than to start on New Year’s Day!

Also there’s this.

It’s Official

This will be the return of a fitness blog. Yes there will be a sprinkle of baby here and there, but it’s time get back on the wagon.

Nursing has really helped me drop the pounds, but I want to tone up and get my diet on track. I’m one of those lucky ones who can eat whatever and lose weight with nursing. It’s been great, but she’s eating more and more solids, which means less milk.

So, for 2014 my goal is to eat mostly paleo, mostly clean, with room for some splurges. My goal is to run a 5K and a 10K with the stroller, and to walk/jog after work and on weekends at least 3 times per week. I’d love to throw in one or two Pilates or weights sessions too, but we will see!

Before pics to come Jan 1!

This is what brand new motherhood actually looks like. See the description and source here. 
Cognitive dissonance is the frustration, guilt, and embarrassment of holding two conflicting opinions at once.
Or in other words, that feeling of being a new mother, overwhelmed by the enormous physical, emotional and spiritual change that’s just occurred, engulfed in exhaustion, hunger, pain, and annoyance, scarfing down French fries beside a pile of laundry in the 20 minutes you have before the baby wakes up again, and meanwhile you feel like the house should be perfectly clean, and that you should prepare some organic healthy feast for your husband, and that you should fit into your jeans by now, and that you are a failure because none of this is what you planned. 
This is normal, and it sucks, and it’s a mess. But it gets easier. And then it gets wonderful.


Yes to all of this.
