Baking;Cooking;1 mile race
Running Laur was holding a 1 mile virtual race/run for this week. I did my 6 miles this morning and saved one to "race" during Nick's afternoon nap. I ended up warming up one and going at a decent clip for the 2nd mile coming in at 8:02 - on the treadmill. It would have been cool to go to a track to do it and get my real time, but that wasn't in the cards. Maybe one of the days over the break! This was a great motivator though - it made me do an extra mile today!
Tis the season
Today started the cooking and baking for Christmas Eve. I am making a semi-healthy lasagna, some yummy dips and hope to make a chocolate cake for dessert along with Christmas cookies that have been frozen since baking extraganza a few weekends ago. I am not in the mood at all to make any more cookies!
Breastfeeding - Do I give up?
Until right about a month ago, things were going fine. Nick was definitely losing interest quickly and I was getting frustrated. I gave up on feeding him directly from the source except first thing in the morning which means that I pump 3 times a day. And pumping 3 times a day only gets me 6 ounces, which is enough for his bedtime bottle. Part of me doesn't want to quit since I just have about a month and a half till 1 year and the other part of me just wants to throw in the towel, give him formula for another few weeks and start up the whole milk. I think it is great he gets 2 servings of breastmilk everyday, but in the end, I don't know how much it matters. The whole thing of drying up has been frustrating to someone who didn't even want to do it pre-baby.
