*insert whining and complaining here*

I realize  that I have been absent. Adrienne continues to remind me to update my blog.
But I just can't find the motivation to do it.

In my time of absence, I have managed to lose more weight, bringing my total to about 17 pounds. I am chipping away slow and steady.
The re-entry of sugar and flour in to my diet really affected my weight loss, and I've had a hard time getting back on track.

My baby wants to be held all the time. Always. Which I'm trying to cherish because I know she'll be my last one, but sometimes a girl just wants her space. And I know that sounds horrible and selfish, and I'm really sorry. But I'm just trying to keep it real here.

I did another 5K on Sunday, and am just feeling super frustrated with my fitness level. I'm not getting any faster, and while my legs feel great while I'm running, my heart rate gets up over 200 really quickly. I'm really starting to worry that I won't be able to do my half marathon.

Don't worry about your time girl. You will finish before 4 hours. You could WALK at a brisk pace and finish in 4 hours. Try run 8 walk 1. A lot of people do that for marathons so they keep their heart steady. You are doing awesome.
Paige is your last!? Whaattt!? ;-)
I know exactly how you feel. I absolutely cherish my time with Reece. But I need a break sometimes, but I often don't get one :/
Thanks for bloggin love!

There's nothing horrible or wrong about wanting and needing some time and space without having a baby attached to you (boob, hip, whatever). I hope you're able to find a way to make that happen!
