I just love the beginning of a new month! Don’t you? Especially when it has to do with the beginning of a HOLIDAY season! I so love Fall!
I put the fall decorations out. We have pumpkin candles burning daily. I even made some pumpkin-blueberry muffins from Trader Joe’s (I added in the blueberries to the mix and used apple sauce instead of oil).
I have set some October goals because this is going to be a very busy month. I have two races, two weddings, our baby shower, several birthdays and I HAVE TWO BIG DREAMS LAUNCHING this month!!! Although I have enjoyed all the wonderful meals that have been prepared for us, and of course all the yummy desserts, my tummy hasn’t. So I am getting back to CLEAN EATS and eating what my body thrives off of. Happy to get back at it!
We have now had RJ for 20 days and they have been the best 20 days of our lives!
She really is a HAPPY baby and we are counting our blessings for it We haven’t really tried to put Rylee on a ‘real’ schedule. Instead, we let her tell us when she is hungry or needs to be changed. She has stuck to eating every 2-3 hours and goes potty regularly. She has her gassy days, but never so much that she screams about it for hours.
Rylee started with Enfamil Formula before we got her so we continued using it so that we wouldn’t mess anything up. She is doing OK with it, but wish I could have given her breast milk.
We love watching her grow, but man, she is getting big too fast! I am so blessed to be at home soaking up every minute of her smiles!
So I am getting excited about my Tri, but honestly, I just want my race to be finished. I want to spend more time at home with baby girl than I want to be training for this race.
I was committing to two swim days, two bike rides, three run days and five days of GPP, but I had to adjust that a little and have been running 3 times a week (4 miles, 5 miles and a long run day), biking at least once a week (20 plus miles) and swimming hasn’t happened since we got Rylee, but I’m trying to swim one day a week! I have been able to do five days of GPP. As soon as I get home from my workouts, I am quickly running to give my baby girl hugs (sanitized, of course)!
After my races are over (October 26th), I will go back to running once a week, biking one a week and doing GPP 5 days a week. I want to keep my fitness a priority, but if I don’t get in a workout… it is not the end of the world!
Thank goodness hubby is home for the majority of my training so it makes it a lot easier for me to get out, but once he is back to work, it will be a whole new ball game!
