This week was another interesting one as I attempted the transition of returning to work full time and being a full time mom. My workouts varied throughout the week depending on my schedule. I was able to reach 10,000 steps on most days but lets be honest....there were some days where sleep mattered more than walking circles around my house to reach those 10,000 steps at 11 o'clock at night. Wednesday and Thursday were two of those days. Ah well, it happens...

On Saturday morning, I met up with my favorite running buddy for a 5 mile run around the lake! It had been a while since I'd been out there so it was nice to see the sunrise over the water again! 

I just can't get enough of this gorgeous view!

It was a warm run on Saturday morning and although we started around 6:30 a.m., the humidity was still high and had reached 94% by the time we finished our run! We were both soaked at the end of it all! Hello summer time!

Something else we noticed on Saturday morning - hello...there's a million yellow trash cans all around and someone still threw trash on the road. Lazy lazy people.

Saturday morning's breakfast was delicious! I made egg-in-a-hole bread and had turkey bacon on the side. Delicious!

On Tuesday afternoon, Jason and I dodged rain showers for a walk with our kids. It was our first time to attempt a walk with the five of us and it was interesting to say the least!

Midway through our walk, Pixie ended up in the basket on the bottom of the stroller! Haha!

Those rain showers I mentioned? Well, the rain happened incredibly fast and came down in buckets - we were all under a flash flood warning. The neighborhood next to mine had water in several front yards - the ducks were even out for a swim!

My little man also turned 10 weeks this week! He had his immunizations on Monday and took them like a champ!

That's all for this week! I plan to run again on Saturday morning with my friend Heather. Hope you have a great one!! :)


  1. You seem to be adjusting well to work, and back to your running. Your lake view is beautiful, and hopefully you go there often for your longer runs.

    1. Thanks, Pam! I love running around the lake - it's one of my favorite places to run! :)

  2. Girl you seem to be adjusting so well! So awesome! And I LOVE that all 5 of you went for a walk! Give Brayden hugs for me! He is just too cute!!!

  3. We had a downpour Monday with standing water, but enough for ducks. There's a spot at work outside my window that's a low spot for rain, and I think it's adorable when the ducks waddle over for a swim.

  4. Glad to hear that your first week back went well. Its definitely a challenge to fit it all in, but all you can do is try your best. And I'm with you, sometimes sleep is more important than working out.
