Baby rucking is great, if you can make it more than once a week you will thank yourself.

I agree.

Kettlebells and baby rucking, how can I resist? 

 

You cannot resist. It is, in fact futile. Your Biological and Technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. You will lower your shields and escort us to Sector 001.

I'm sure there's a bathroom joke in that somewhere.

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.

Cook a bunch and continue with intuitive eating. I haven't lost weight yet with IE, but that's not the point. The point is to heal one's relationship with food and begin to listen to body signals of hunger and fullness. I'm in that stage right now, and have noticed I no longer eat boredom, and am beginning to tell the difference between hunger and thirst. Eventually I will focus on nutrition again. This isn't a SMART goal, but IE is, by it's very name, intuitive, so I'm okay with that.

 

Nice job on not eating the boredom. That is something I struggle with. I went from all restriction to all permission and haven't really found any islands or floating debris in between that I could clamber on to.

Baby rucking... yep, used to do that a lot. Loved that time together, walking outside.

May this challenge be a great one, including all the Little Bit pics we hope for.

I'll have to keep posting Little Bit pics.

FWIW I am at my heaviest I have ever been. I feel like I'm finally ready to start focusing on the movement and gentle nutrition aspects of IE. As for your second point, he is here for amusement, but I don't think I intended him to be for amusement.

No worries, you are here now and that's all that matters. It is not important how many times you take a break, as long as you always come back :)

I hope you three are all doing super awesome with your new addition. I'm going to have to stalk your old challenges to see how things went :D 

 

We are doing awesome. Please note all my previous challenges are conveniently linked in order in my signature.

 

Today is a good day. We got up and I picked up groceries (we did curbside instead of delivery because the fee is cheaper). We then took Little Bit to her Grandmothers and had our first baby free afternoon since she was born. 

 

First we went out to lunch at a steak house. Then...

Spoiler

we went home. Then...

Spoiler

We cleaned the kitchen. Then...

Spoiler

We cleaned up more. Then...

Spoiler

We took a nap.

 

 

The order of events may have been altered for comedic purposes.

 

 

 

 

I made dinner at home. It was Chicken and WAFFLES! Incidentally waffles>pancakes. We used pre-made chicken fingers that I reheated in the oven, then I made waffles from a mix with our waffle iron.

There was no euphemism, it was really cleaning.

 

Today is a good day. I got a haircut, and rucked the baby for a mile. She slept soundly through it all. I made lunch, with some cornbread muffins from a mix, and homemade soup. I browned 1 lb of ground beef and drained it, returning it to the pot and seasoning with salt and pepper multiple times. I then added some red wine vinegar, canned tomatoes, and beef broth. I brought it to a boil and added some dried basil, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, and more salt and pepper and let it simmer. It was very good.
