It’s been over a months since I’ve returned to work after maternity leave. I never thought going back to work would be as difficult as it has been. Before having my little guy I expected to walk back into the office as the firecracker that I was pre-babe. After having him I discovered how profoundly unrealistic that was. Expecting to walk into the office the same person I was when I left is the professional equivalent of expecting to wear my favorite pre-pregnancy pants out of the hospital. Ain’t gonna happen.
This holiday you will most likely be faced with holiday treats, get together with family and friends and you may even be planning a getaway if you are lucky enough to enjoy a four day weekend. Here are some simple Easter tips to stay on track with your fitness goals.
The end of the year provides a wonderful opportunity to look back on the last year of experiences and reflect on how they have shaped and changed us. It also signals the start of a new and exciting year full of possibility. Soon I’ll share my goals for 2017 but before I do its good practice to first to look back on the year. Celebrate successes, acknowledge areas where I may have fallen short. Identify what I can improve upon, and simply reflect on the year and the impact it has made. Without further ado….my 2016 Year End Recap
The holidays are a time when you reflect — on holidays past, the year past, those you have known, and even who you once were. For many, the holidays are very much about memories and traditions formed in childhood. Our memories make up the story of our life that exists in our mind. These memories can give us comfort, direction, inspiration, and hope.
With months of Pelvic Floor conditioning behind me and my little guy getting bigger, this month I hit the pavement with my jogging stroller. I was fortunate enough to be given an InStep Fixed Wheel Jogger which I am happy with so far. I knew using a jogging stroller would be hard but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. Part of the struggle might have had something to do with the year that has passed since my last outdoor run. 😉 My runs to date are more for sanity than speed, read on for my observations and suggestions.
