WOAH. How is it already October 1? Where is my life going? Time flies when you’re having fun. This month was a rather interesting one on HTP, I think – we tackled topics like whether someone shouting “You can do it!” during a race makes you want to scream, and how to make epic art with painter’s tape. Read on!
Most Likely to Succeed: Mind and Body After Baby, Month 3. Let Month 3 go down in the HTP history books as the month that I really pulled it all together emotionally and physically after Henry. Feeling great, having a blast with little Henners, and so looking forward to writing the Month 4 recap. Runner-Up? The Dream Feed. Because doing the DF makes me feel like a superhero every single night.
Safety First: Running in the Street. One of the things that I like most about running is how I can just zone out. But it’s not safe to completely check out while running in the street, especially when you’re wearing headphones. Here are some tips on avoiding a collision with a car.
Best Debate: Encouraging Others. How do you feel about mid-race encouragement? And does, “You’re almost there!” annoy you,too?
Most Versatile Recipe: Cornbread Quiche and Its Endless Variations. Yum.
Most Cathartic: Why I Pump (and Why You Shouldn’t Feel Bad for Me). An explanation of where Henry and I are with breastfeeding and why I’ve chosen this path. Writing this post – and reading the comments – was so good for my soul. It helped me feel really at peace with the decision to exclusively pump.
Best Simple Recipe: Pistachio Stir Fry (Step-by-Step}. This really was my favorite dish of the month – a combination of tofu, brown rice, steamed kale, onion, carrots, pistachios, and Italian dressing.
Best Race: Easy! My best race was my only race of the month. Ramblin Rose 5 Miler.
Best Sports Bra: Five For Fighting and a Sports Bra Review. I finally found a PERFECT sports bra. I’ve been loving this bra more and more since writing this post. It’s awesome!
Craftiest: DIY Wall Art. How I turned a canvas and painters tape into a pretty work of art in under two hours.
