When you try to do a workout video – while watching your 1 year old

So the other day I posted this picture of me attempting to do a workout with Ady hanging out in the room. I was all excited and feeling empowered in one of those look-at-me-I-can-do-it-all moments. Well, I wish I could share that that it went well and I finished the workout within 30 minutes. But I didn’t. It went a little something like this: Ady was playing fine on her own and then decided she was hungry. Pause video. So…

How having a baby changed how I think about my career

I think it was in middle school when I declared I wanted to be a lawyer. I knew you had to work really hard to be one, work long hours, and you could be really successful doing it. I told my parents this is what I wanted to do and for most of my undergraduate college years I still thought that way. I even sat for the LSAT my junior year at UT. At that time, I wasn’t concerned about…

I am not a Pinterest Mom

I am not a Pinterest Mom. Phew, it feels good to get that off my chest. I have been planning Ady’s first birthday party and the decorations started to seriously stress me out. I am not a creative or artsy person at all. I don’t know how to make magical things out of paper cups and tissue paper. I can barely draw a stick figure. So if I hear one more person to tell me to “just look at Pinterest”…

6 Reasons I am Thankful for Running

Yesterday was National Running Day and unfortunately I couldn’t get a run in but I made up for it this morning on my treadmill. There are so many of these types of days out there and they are a little bit silly but the Running Day I can definitely jump on the bandwagon for. Running has been a huge part of my life for over 10 years now. It all started as a way for me to relieve some stress…

Running Slump

So I think I’m in a running slump or funk or whatever you want to call it. Lately when I go out for a run, it’s just not the same. I’m not sure if it’s because I don’t have a race immediately in the future, I’m too tired, or I’m just not into it but it’s just off. And it’s starting to make me a little sad! I feel a lot slower and running seems harder than it should some…
