Run Mom Run Happy

My thoughts on being a mom, runner, wannabe health nut, and everything else.

Re-establishing Healthy Habits and Back to Blogging!

It has been way too long since I’ve written a blog for myself!  I’m back!

I’m happy, overjoyed, thrilled to say that the running troubles of 2015 seem to be behind me.  (Knock on wood a thousand times.)  I have built my base back up to 30-35 miles a week, and just recently, have worked on slowly increasing my pace back to where I was two years ago.  This is HUGE for me considering that in September of last year, I ran 9, very slow, miles total.  I do still have some lingering left foot issues in my first metatarsal, BUT it has been tolerable and steadily improving.  Read the rest of this entry »

Holiday Food Hangover: Desserts….So Many Desserts

Ahh, the holidays.  A time to spend with family and friends, enjoying their company, and EATING.  I have eaten so SO much over the past week that I am unsure how it all fit into my now slightly bloated, heavier body.  I don’t regret it.  Not one bit.  I love all the goodies at the holidays.  So many cutely designed cookies, extravagant chocolates, rich trifles, comforting pies, and other sugar-filled sweet concoctions (I’m making myself hungry again) at every holiday get-together.  Not to mention all the “regular” food (that has often been made more delicious and fattening by being turned into a casserole) that we all (I mean, everyone does do this right?!) overindulge in by eating huge giant sized portions at multiple parties.  As I said, I don’t regret it.  I love eating all this delicious food!  But (yes, there is a but) now I don’t feel very well at all.  I’m very sluggish, unfocused, and mushy.
