I got sucked into a vortex of Henry and am just now emerging â€“ with circles under my eyes, a frazzled expression, and a messy house. At least heâ€™s super cute!
Amidst the drama, I managed to go on a 10K run. I was pretty pleased â€“ I wasnâ€™t super speedy but I maintained an even pace and never thought, â€œOMG, I canâ€™t go on, make it stop.â€ Considering my furthest post-pregnancy run had been 5 miles, it felt like a big accomplishment!
Cold enough to require mittens â€“ Iâ€™ve had these gloves for over TWENTY YEARS. I literally wore them in elementary school. Crazy, huh?
The best part of the run, however, was that it was trash day. I absolutely love, love, love watching the neighborhood dogs freak out at the garbage trunk. In Charlotte, the garage men donâ€™t jump out and haul the cans in manually â€“ this mechanical arm comes down, grabs the can, and turns it upside down in the truck. Itâ€™s pretty neat â€“ but dogs must think itâ€™s a monster.
I followed the trunk for a good three or four minutes just to see all the pups lose it. Hah.
So â€“ todayâ€™s breakfast:
A protein shake
In the smoothie: strawberries, banana, soy milk, and protein powder.
Off to be a momma!
