  1. Food has been hit or miss... sigh. Lifting has been only once per week. Hiking has been most days though. And most importantly. I've started physical therapy. I'm over a year post partum and still having some pelvic pain and incontinence issues, so I got a referral approved for PT with a specialist. So far, its been interesting.... she says I am really bad at hip alignment and that my breathing patterns are lazy and causing weird pressure in my torso and pushing down towards my pelvic floor muscles. It's probably going to be several months of PT. But life it good. Spring has sprung in Alaska, yesterday was 43 degrees lol. Went for a walk in leggings and a windbreaker and was hot haha. Going to California to visit my parents next month, and I am going to melt!
  2. She is very very patient. She puts up with a lot of attention from him, which of course is watched closely by us. We're trying to teach him how to nicely pet her and not to grab her fur, but it's slow going. I have her bed in our bedroom and she can escape him when she wants to and I make sure that if she's seeming annoying we separate. But she's never growled at him so it's going well.
  3. Lifted yesterday! Deadlifted a whopping 55 lbs... but that;s still improvement so yay!

  8. I was SUPER DOMSY and then of course, I got a cold. Food has been good though, and I finally felt well enough today to get out and hike with the kid and dog. We needed it. I'm excited for another challenge to start.
  9. Kiddo woke up this morning with crusted shut nostrils, so we stayed home. However, I think I got a decent workout scrubbing my floors by hand while kiddo climbed all over me. I might try to go once hubby is awake (he's on nights right now). If not, there's tomorrow.
  10. Almost a week has passed, and haven't made it back to the gym. Kiddo is just not sleeping well, and it makes it so hard to be motivated to do anything. Planning to go in the morning, no matter how tired I am. Even if I just stretch and do a little cardio, I need to do it for me. Kiddo is taking a late nap, after that I'm heading to the store with my list and my meal plan to prep for the week.
  11. Man, time flies and flutters away from me... Once again, kinda cheating and moving this thread to the new challenge. It's been a crazy month since I last posted. Haven't been working out, thanks to a bunch of life happening. Kiddo turned 1, still waking me up constantly and now he's walking and climbing everything in sight. Brother and sister in law came for a visit. Got the stomach flu. Hubby totaled his SUV. Haven't been working out or eating well at all. Gained back the few lbs I lost early this year. I am so ready to get back to things. Went to the gym this morning, and kiddo did well at the childcare room. They didn't call me and I finished a lifting session. Still have SO FAR TO GO, but I can't make progress unless I keep with it. Here's to new resolve.
  12. Doing well this week! Meal planning is so important... I planned it all out on Sunday, shopped on Monday, and actually stuck to the plan! No need to last minute figure out food or resort to eating out. So much better for our budget too. And since I've been so good at the house routines, my sink is empty just about every night so I can easily cook meals throughout the day and immediately clean up afterwards. I did a bit of cardio and my lifting routine last night. I did deadlifts with an empty olympic bar and they felt great. I think I'm ready to add some weight next week, when the reps are going down. Overall things are going well, even despite kiddo still having really erratic sleep. I need to work on developing better habits for him with naps and sleep. We both need it.
  13. Alaska is cold... Ive been staying and home and eating because it feels right when you're freezing! I need to get back on track Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  14. Here's some fun pics of me and the kiddo and pup in the snow. It was about 3 degrees! I try to get outside every day, even in the the extreme cold. These are my new workout shoes! Bought them to motivate me to get into the gym for weights twice a week. I couldn't find anything I liked for lifting and jogging/zumba locally, so I bought two sizes of these off amazon and returned the pair that was too small. Yay for free shipping and returns. I did my two lifting workouts and they were tough. Even though NROLFW starts off with higher reps and lower weights, it was still really humbling to see how much strength I've lost. I'm excited to use these Food has been pretty good, despite realizing that I have not been Whole30 compliant... mommy brain didn't make the connection about whey protein mixed with milk being dairy haha. But the spirit of the whole 30 I think is more important for me, and aside from my (organic/grass fed/no additives) protein shake, I've kept to non processed foods and no added sugars. So I think that's good enough for now. Continuing on with better guidelines! And house stuff is going really well. The better I am about doing a little every day, the easier it's been to keep up. It's definitely snowballed and made the routines tighter and better. Meal planning especially had the great spillover into keeping our grocery shopping in check and that is helping our budget goals. Last year this time, I was SUPER pregnant, and so tired and swollen and just unable to keep up with life at all. I feel so much better and I'm seeing so much progress in all these areas that I'm feeling really encouraged
