I'm Fit Possible

I woke up to this email this morning. I applied about 2 weeks ago and I'm so excited to be accepted to be an Ambassador for I'm Fit Possible and be part of such an amazing community! The welcoming has been unbelievable and so full of love. I'm happy to share my love of living a healthy lifestyle with more people. :)
Remember that living a healthy lifestyle does not mean not eating your favorite foods, but eating in moderation. Living healthy is not boring and especially not about diets!

It's The Simple Things In Life...

Jellybean finally being able to wear her cute outfit that a sweet friend sent her more than half a year ago :)

Looking at these teaser pictures from the Girl Meets World show that is supposed to air this Summer 2014.

So excited to be reading Heaven Is For Real the spanish version - El Cielo Es Real

Watching the two loves of my life bond. It's amazing, the love they have for each other!

After finding out I have an infection, this is the only way to breastfeed baby girl so she won't get sick. A silly family picture was in order :)

Happy Friday, loves!!

Happy National Jellybean Day

It's National Jellybean Day and of course our baby girl had to wish you all a wonderful Jellybean day :)
Yes, that is a vintage jellybean dress that she is wearing. It is a few sizes to big, right now. But she will grow into it. Each year she will wear this dress until it doesn't fit her anymore.
Go eat a Jellybean and enjoy today!

This happened yesterday - Sunday April 20th
I did the We Stand With Boston virtual race and boy did it hurt - ha!
It was my comeback run and it felt so good to feel the pavement under my feet. The day was beautiful and I was a happy mom runner!

Of course I had my partner in crime, the best running buddy ever - my dad!
I am so grateful for him, he never lets me give up! He's always there for me, I love him so much. i am one proud daughter!

New Toy

Special delivery for me!
I've been wanting a new watch for a while now. But I kept holding back, while husband kept telling me to buy one. Well,  I finally made up my mind and thought it was a good time. This mommy needs all the motivation she can get to start running again!
I decided on the Nike + Plus GPS watch and it is so cool looking, its arm candy for your wrist!

Looking forward to use my new watch, when i go get my run on!

Any new toys that you're excited to try out?

It's not easy...

Being a baby is not easy! Especially when you have to go to your 2 month appointment and get 3 shots :( Today was baby girls 2 month wellness appointment, she got weighed and we were told that our baby girl was perfect :) She weighs 11lbs 9.5 oz and is 23 inches long. She fell asleep right before it was time for her to get her shots, so you can imagine how horrible it feels to be woken up with a needle in your little thigh. I forgot how horrible it feels to see your baby cry out of pain!
She cried and stopped a few minutes after. Now till her 4 month wellness appointment.

Time to get back and bring it on!!

1st Before and After back in July 2012

I started my "weight loss" journey back in May 2012. The only thing that I didn't know back then was that it really wasn't about losing weight but about finding myself, embracing my curves and learning that running was what I truly loved to do (aside from being a mom, which is my number #1 priority).
It's been rough, there have been times when I thought I couldn't and wouldn't do it. But than I rang in 2013 by doing my first race and soon after my 1st half marathon. I ran a few more races and even ran while pregnant with Jellybean. It's now been 5 months that I haven't gone for a run and really haven't been that active. It's been making me feel a little bit down. I've started to let those ugly thoughts of feeling fat creep into my head. It's been a long time that I kicked that out of my life and it sucks that I'm letting them creep back into my life. There's nothing worse than feeling sorry for yourself.
But, it's time to lace up those running shoes again. I ordered a new running watch, my iPod has new songs and I'm planning to go for my 1st run tomorrow morning.
Yes, I will take it easy. I will ease in by walking and running, I will not be hard on myself and I will remind myself that slowly but surely I will be back to running.
I will kick those nasty thoughts out of my mind and I will let running clear my mind, I will lose myself with the music and I will enjoy every breath I take!

22.3 lbs lighter and this girl is ready to bring it on!

My new goals - get ready to train for two races that will take place in June. One is the Oakley Mini 10k, which I did last year while pregnant with Jellybean and the second one is the Achilles Hope and Possibility 5M. I was supposed to run that one last year, but I was not feeling so good with my pregnancy and it was SO hot and humid I had to sit out the race. But this year I will run for me and my munchkins!

1- Prepare for Race 1 - Mini 10K (6 miles)
2- Prepare for Race 2 - Achilles Hope & Possibility (5 miles)
3- Lose some more weight, lets start with being in the 150's by June. That gives me 2 months to lose 10lbs or more.

I'm excited to make a comeback!

What are your goals?
