Sentence per picture.

This is been a very busy work week and I’m so ready for the weekend! Since I’m exhausted, here’s a lazy (but thrilling) post. 🙂

Yesterday’s yummy breakfast.

Last night (and tonight’s) dinner. I really love BBQ chicken pizza.

Last night (and tonight’s and every other night) dessert. I just can’t stop dessert…I need an intervention.

My favorite little girl. ❤

Face mask…I just realized this is still on and it’s been on for way too long.

Enjoy your Friday!

New workout schedule and fingers crossed.

I’ve been back to work for a week and a half now. All in all, it has gone pretty well but it is definitely an adjustment. I would love to go back to hanging out with these two all day.

Now that I don’t have time to workout all dayduring the day, I am lucky enough to be able to squeeze in a workout during lunch at work.

Some people would use this shelf for work related items…I use it for my workout/running accessories.

FYI – I keep the crutch handy because I usually need it every couple of months :-(. It also doubles as a great place to hang things. Thanks Marissa!

My work has a nice and affordable gym for the employees. While I prefer to be out running with my running peeps, I do often stay inside and cross train or take classes. I’m looking forward to Body Pump at noon today. If you haven’t taken body pump (ever or it’s just been a while), go do it. I’ve been back at it for two weeks now and I can definitely see more definition in my arms and legs.

Thankfully, I have also been able to keep up with yoga at least a few times a week. However, I am struggling with feeling guilty about not going straight home after work. I miss Annabelle and I can’t wait to get home to her, but I know that I need to exercise and keep my mind and body healthy in order to be a good mom. No worries, this will no longer be an issue when I win the gazillion dollar power ball :-).

So about a week and a half ago, I went for a glorious #runfree4me run and ran for about an hour. I felt pretty good but felt some tightness in my left cheek…butt cheek. A little later in the evening, it was really painful and I had to modify the way I walked. I could squat and move in other ways just fine, but the walking/running movement was so painful. I’ve been resting it ever since (no running), and it feels a lot better. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I will be all better by the Zooma Annapolis Half on June 1st.

Double fingers crossed…

What do you think?

Do you ever feel workout guilt?

Any races coming up?

Annabelle’s first day of work.

Long story short…Annabelle was a bit fussy last night and didn’t go to bed until way late.  I was super exhausted and could not pull myself out of bed to make it to yoga (it was a busy day and I had to get it in early if it was going to happen.)  I know I’m a little nuts, but I really HATE missing a workout.  My whole day is just off…you know what I mean, right?  Anyway, we had a full day of visiting scheduled today.

Breakfast on the run…lots of protein and it tastes candy bar-ish.

First, we visited my work so I could introduce AB to all of my coworkers.  They were so helpful and patient with me for those 9 months and I know that they would appreciate meeting her.  Annabelle felt very official because she had her very own badge.

We spent a few hours visiting and I was very happy to see my coworkers…it was great being at work without having to do any work :).

Our next stop was to visit my friend Nakiya who had a beautiful baby boy about a month ago.  I forgot to take a picture, but trust me when I say he is adorable and Annabelle has added him to her future boyfriend list.

Since I had only eaten breakfast, I was super hungry for dinner.  Here is an unappetizing picture of a turkey burger on an english muffin with chips and guacamole on the side…you’re welcome.

Annabelle was very tired from her day of visiting…my dad thought it would be rude to make her nap alone so he joined her.  I think my parents really enjoy that I’m showing the world how photogenic they are :).

John, Emmy, Kenzie, and Morgan will be here tomorrow night!  So excited for them to meet Annabelle.  They are driving up from the Sunshine State, so let’s hope that they bring some warm weather with them!

What do you think?

Do you feel bad when you miss a workout?

Without a doubt…

Does it feel like Spring where you live?

No way!  It is bitterly cold and windy.
