Postnatal Fitness- The Jogging Stroller

Jogging StrollerWith 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.

Augusts Goal Check-In 2016

2016 goalsAt the beginning of this year, I declared my goals for 2016 with 5 categories; fitness, family, fun, business, and financial.  I did this with apprehension, uncertain what to expect for the new year with a baby.

2016 Goals

2016 GoalsFor the past couple of years I have set goals for 6 categories; personal, family, business, health, spiritual, and financial. I am changing up the categorizes slightly for my 2016 goals; fitness, family, fun, business, and financial.

I am setting my 2016 goals with apprehension; I am uncertain what to expect for this coming year and the changes it will bring. It seems self-defeating to be setting goals for a life that I am familiar with while preparing to enter unfamiliar territory.
With that being said, I will continue to maintain my goal setting practices with the optimism that I will be able to find a hybrid between the present and the future. So without further ado, my 2016 goals…..
