I dropped the ball on my Valentine’s Day blog because I was wrapped up with other things. I might have subconsciously avoided blogging about it too because I don’t really care for Valentine’s Day. It’s been a day that has been HORRIBLE for me so I try to stay clear of it all together.
But I did have the best Valentine EVER which made this the best Valentine’s Day I’ve ever had! I do hope that everyone had an enjoyable Valentine’s Day filled with lots of love.
I thought I would take the time to talk about some of the things I’m loving right now, besides being a new mom. (I’ve been trying to stay clear of the baby things on the blog, but I think I’m going to have a dedicated day to talk about baby stuff. I can’t deny that she’s a part of my world and there are just some things I want to talk about.)
I love being able to workout, again. For me going that long without working out was hard. Exercise is the place where I can let my stress go and that’s the longest I’ve gone without working out since I started working out in 2011. And I won’t lie, I’ve been struggling with a little PPD and the exercise thing has helped bring that back in check for me, a lot.
Previously I had stated I wouldn’t run until April. Well, that lasted about 3 days. What can I say? I love running. I just needed to get out there and sweat. I am taking things slowly and right now I’m using the Couch to 10K app from Zenlabs ($3.99) to ease back into running. I am loosely following the plan. I don’t hate the app, I just wish I could run more consistently. I know I’m working toward getting back to the point, though so it doesn’t bother me that much.
The best part of getting out there now is I get to take Baby G with me sometimes.
As far as food is going, I’m still enjoying my frozen meals until I get the hang of things and have a little bit of time to fix the food I want. It works out fine because it’s portion controlled and that’s all that matters. But when I do get out, I’ve been chowing down on the Panera BBQ Chicken Salad. It’s always been one of my favorites. Plus, I feel like if you go to Panera you get more bang for your buck when you get a salad. The place can be a little pricey.
And I got a new collection of trucker hats and visors this past weekend. I am wicked excited to representing Headsweats again this year. Everyone knows I’m a huge fan of the trucker hat and all the visors. I never run or do anything without them. I can’t wait to take these out for some runs…and get back to those trails one day soon. And I can’t talk about Headsweats without telling you that using code: WEBEATFAT gets you 25% off your order at headsweats.com! Go get yourself a hat!
That’s my post valentine’s day love list!
What did you do to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Did you get any good gifts?
