Day 8 – Ran out of time

day8

Wow! I don’t know what happened to me yesterday. I usually run 2-3km then do a workout afterwards. Yesterdays 5km race – completely wiped me out. When I got home, I made the mistake of sitting down for a bit… and then it hit me… everything hurt…. and then I proceeded to have a 2 hour nap. I was seriously spent. But when I woke up I felt a thousand times better.

I just can’t get over how much I enjoyed yesterdays race. I keep mentioning how excited I am to do it next year…and I cant wait for my next race… the next one I am signed up for is in october…. but I might look and see if I can sign up for one in september. Even with Darcy gone, I should be able to find someone to help me out with the kids one morning. ( hint hint if any family is reading this post)

My medal from yesterday. It’s definitly one of my favorites. โค

Today my daughter started her last week of summer camp. I dropped her off this morning… and the good thing about her camp is that it’s also at the YMCA – so I then proceeded to drop my son off for his playcare time with his friends ( seriously – a ymca membership is amazing…free childcare for 2 hours!) and I headed upstairs for my workout.

I rode the bike today. For an hour. I was really into my show and I couldn’t stop! It’s a read addiction!

Plus I did a whole bunch of extra stuff…

  1. leg lifts
  2. plank
  3. crunches
  4. push ups
  5. triceps
  6. biceps
  7. shoulders
  8. standing side abs ( I don’t know what it’s called)
  9. twists

hmm… I think that might be all. But it was a good workout. I felt good. Actually I wanted to keep going – and I would have if I hadn’t looked down to see what time it was and realized that I had 5 minutes to clean up, grab my things and head downstairs to pick up my son. I utilized the full 2 hours and totally ran out of time to do a few more things I had in my mind to do… but there is always tomorrow!

It’s been a while…

I was surfing around earlier and I came across my blog… this blog mainly and a few others I have on other topics ( like Prader Willi Syndrome) and I noticed that it had been 2 years since my last blog post.

2 whole years!

I could hardly believe it.

Where have I been for two years?

Actually it has been a super busy time! Two years ago I was pregnant with my second child. That was a lot of fun… yah no – I actually hate being pregnant. Pregnancy for me is 9 months of sciatic pain, feeling like garbage and wishing it was all over. Luckily – the end came and on January 31st 2016 we welcomed our son Emrys into the world.

Emrys

This is Emrys at 18 months! Can you believe how handsome he is? Seriously I just love him to bits!

My daughter Finished up preschool that year and went into kindergarten with an aide – and while the year had ups and downs, she made such amazing progress and I am super proud of her. She is about to enter into Grade one in a few weeks… I am super nervous and EXCITED for full day schooling! HAHA!.

Emelyn

This is a recent photo of my daughter Emelyn. She has her backpack and lunch kit and is heading to summer camp… preparing her for Grade 1. That lunch kit is about the same size as her…

Since January this year, I have taken up running…. and by that I mean… I have taken up paying to enter into 5km races and going out to do that about once a month. I don’t know if I like it or not…. I like when I get to the finish line… and I like that I usually sign up for a race that gives you a medal… I do it for the bling! lol.

Emelyn’s First 1KM Race! I was so proud of her!

I have also been “working out” at the YMCA for almost a year…. you would think I would be in better shape… They have free child care – so my son gets dropped off in the mornings for 2 hours and I head upstairs… sometimes I do stuff… sometimes I just plant my butt onto a bike and I watch Netflix in peace for 2 hours… I think I use it mostly for some mental health time. Which is super important! ๐Ÿ™‚

I also got married this year. Nothing has changed since being married… but I guess if you are together with your partner for 11 years, have a mortgage and two children already – we basically had life all set up before hand anyhow. Let me tell you though, planning a wedding is a lot of work. ย Worth it though – It was a super fun day… even though I had some unexpected bumps in the road that day. As fun as it was – I am glad that I am only getting married this once! You hear that Darcy?! You are stuck with me for ever and ever and ever ๐Ÿ™‚

So… Basically that’s what I have been up to for the last two years… If I have any followers that still read my blog – let me know what you’ve been up to for the last while ๐Ÿ™‚
