Fitness Quick Catch Up:Hello Everyone, Happy Weight Loss Wednesday!! How is your week going so far? Mine has been alright - I missed a work out on Monday due to the kid room being closed, I ran yesterday, and then cleaned my house tonight for my work out - dusting, vacuuming, and folding laundry, all for 2 hours - I will totally count that as a workout :) I run again tomorrow, so Im slowly getting on track.
Moving is so Hard:Man, moving really messes with your whole routine. This move has been tough on me, not because of weight loss...that part I am maintaining, thankfully - but the whole life-turned-upside-down thing...finding a new routine, then trying to figure out how to fit in a work out...all while being lonely and having no friends yet...all while trying to make sure your daughter is adjusting well and keeping the house/husband clean and happy...oye - it's exhausting and I am so tired...it gets easier right? I am hopefully joining a tennis league where I hope to make some friends, but between working/schooling/mommying/and wifing - it's so hard to find time for Taylor Time...but I am trying to make the most of it!
Race Recap:This past weekend, the family ran it's first race!! We ran a 5.7K - roughly 3.5 miles for The Brigance Brigade, which is an organization that supports ALS. It was so much fun and for a wonderful cause.
I ran the whole thing, and was super proud and pumped afterwards. It was a really tough course - huge hills that almost squashed my motivation, but I kept going :) The husband pushed Baby Girl in a stroller and it was super brutal on him! He pushed her until we hit the 3 mile mark, and then we let her out to run - and let me tell you something, hold my daughter's hand while she is squealing with delight was the best feeling in the entire world. After we went through the finish line, she kept saying "Mama, I cant believe I won" I mean - what a sweet angel baby girl :) Melt my heart :) Fingers crossed we sparked a little running fire in her little 4 year old body :) Our time was around 39 minutes, definitely super slow for my husband and I - but with the hills and the stroller, I could really care less, it was fun and I challenged myself to run the whole thing, and I did :) Next up is a 5K on the 28th of April, bring it on baby - #operationredbikini!! In case anyone needs reminding, my #operationredbikini challenge is to run 7 5Ks this year and hit under the 30 minute mark - which I know I can do and cant wait to PR that babay!!
