Yesterday we did Jaxon's therapy run, hit the library and Costco for lunch, and I did a little work on the elliptical. Today we hit a different park. We walked there and I have to tell you, I am wiped out. I think I have contracted Wade's little disease and my throat is already starting to swell... isn't that SWELL.
My body just ain't what is used to be... all this walking/jogging/riding... attempting to lose the pregnancy lbs. has really done a number on me. Unfortunately it is not just sore muscles, but sore JOINTS. I feel like I have been jumping up and down on cement for days.. Oh wait, I kind of have. Looks like I am going to have to try to stay "low-impact" for a while until my body starts to recover a little. As a matter of fact, the shape of body is why you haven't seen a picture of me on this blog in... MONTHS, because it ain't pretty. I was hoping to rectify that soon.
As a matter of fact, I took a shower today, did my hair (which rarely gets done) and put on make up! (If my hair gets done, make up is usually left out) and Abby instantly asked, "Where are you going? "[Sad] I said, "No where" and she said, "But you NEVER get ready unless you are going somewhere." Just how I want to be remembered I tell ya. Unfortunately, that is just kinda how things are going at this point with me and my 5 week old.
Oh, speaking of my 5 week old. This is her sweet little monkey face.
She is just as serious as they come. Not too many smiles.
Unless you call THIS a smile. Trust me. There was only this ONCE and it was so fast I was EXTREMELY FORTUNATE to even capture it on film. Good thing I have a quick finger.
Alright, since I DID do my hair and put on make up (and it wasn't Sunday) here is a picture of me... courtesy of my photographer Abby. We were outside enjoying the weather. Hoping for more fun, and less pain tomorrow.
