6 months !!
I can't believe Nick is 6 months old. Really - where did the time go? Seeing this, I feel like he is going to be going to college in the blink of an eye. Yes, I'm being a little dramatic!
This is scary though, how fast time goes! I want to spend every single minute with the little guy!
So - I kind of slacked off and stopped counting calories. I just don't have the time or don't want to make it. I'm reading all of these food blogs and thinking, they seem to be eating tons of healthy food and doing fine, so I'll just make sure I eat well. Heather let me know about this eat-clean diet which is really a lifestyle change, and mainly just eating good with other details like eating a lean protein and every 3 hours...I have to check into it more but the recipes on the site look great and it looks like something I can do. This calorie counting business is not for me right now. I used to be able to be psycho and drill sargeant-ish, but there are more important things - like Nick... so I'll deal with the weight by trying to eat as best as I can!
I rented the book Super Baby Foods from the library - this goes hand in hand with the Eat-Clean diet. Nick can eat clean too! Best foods for Nick and he can eat what we eat! I'm excited. I have to say, the book is huge and a little overwhelming! Nick has had avocado, banana, apples, pears, prunes, sweet potatoes. Today I bought peaches, nectarines and mango. And I bought millet. We had it for dinner - I plan to make some super porridge for Nick! What are your favorite foods to make, moms?
I seriously just can't get into running right now. I don't know how I will get in my long run this weekend, I'm already not motivated for it, as I am going to be at the shore. I'm heading to the shore the next 2 weekends. Normally I would do my long run before I go down but running on the treadmill isn't happening. In fact, I'm boycotting it for a while. I think my mileage is going to go way down... but I kind of need some time off. Maybe the shore atmosphere will get me into running long - but I doubt it. Anyone going to be down in Ocean City (NJ) and wants to go for a long run? I'm excited for fall weather and running. Sorry for my Debbie Downer running attitude!
WRIGHTSOCKS - have you tried them yet? I'm participating in a Runners Lounge challenge and seriously these socks are awesome. I can't say enough about them. I ALWAYS get blisters running down the shore but not with the WrightSocks - double blister technology. Definitely check them out if you are in the market for socks :)
