Nhershoes Holiday Shred

November 18 I began a 6 week shred through nhershoesfitness. Its clean eating coupled with tabata, HITT, weight, and running workouts. Bobbi even includes recipes. I've wanted to be better with my diet for some time but its hard to do. I've got to many distractions 
To be able to find new recipes, make a grocery list and meal plan. This includes all that and with a little prep work I've been eat the dishes all week. 
Hello pumpkin banana muffins :-) yum

This will hopefully keep me on top of things through the holidays. I really want to lose the last of these pregnancy pounds along with firming up the good ol tummy.

I'm also using her 10k training plan to train for a virtual 10k on Christmas Eve.

Week 1 is well underway and so far I'm not feeling deprived and whoa these workouts are amazing and painful. Hello 200 squats youch!
On the clothing front these athleta capris are amazing! Check them out.

Follow along on my journey! I plan on being better at this whole blogging thing!

Back at it!!

Ive actually been cleared to run for almost 2 weeks now, but everytime I get near the computer one of my kids takes my attention away. So I'm taking these 5 minutes where both my babies are asleep to tap out a post on my phone. I apologize for the phone post it is what if is right now.

Norah is almost 8 weeks old now I can't believe it! Time goes fast and slow all at the same time.  Managing two kids is a humbling experience. My oldest is 21 months and is quite jealous of N. He gets very upset when I'm nursing her. I've been trying different things but nothing has been foolproof to distract him. Its a learning experience for sure. Any suggestions??
My first run was wonderful and slow as heck, but I didn't and don't care because it finally happened. I pounded on the deadmill for 2 miles loving every minute of it.
My Halloween run :-) since they've been going pretty darn good I decided to sign up for a race. I'm doing the Stache Dash 5k in a few weeks and I'm super exited. I even got a fellow mommy friend of mine to do it with me.  
My first outside run in my new Guide 7s. Saucony makes great shoes and these updates are no exception. I love them. Flexible but still supportive. Pretty light for a stability shoe.  The colors are excellent as well.  
My life is very full. Full of chasing a toddler and keeping up with my baby's needs. Coffee is my best friend. Sleep is still a precious commodity that I'm not getting much of.  I love COFFEE!!!  I'm so happy to have my running stress reliever back again, and my ability to drink more than a cup of coffee. I love baby snuggles, but I'll be ok when the 3 am baby time comes to an end. 

Sweet baby E in his Halloween costumes.  Mr. Bones :-)
