Weigh In (5/30)

Ryan (my 2 year old) came down with pinkeye last Thursday, so I stayed home with him on Friday. I took him to the doctor, and it turns out the poor kid had an ear infection too! He was acting fine though, so we still had a good day. I rarely get him all to myself like that. Of course, by the end of the day he kept asking, "Where's Daddy? Where's Karinne?" I guess he's just used to knowing that when he's not at school, then we're all together.

Saturday was Weight Watchers day...

Considering my big loss last week, I'm quite pleased with this weigh in; I usually bounce back up a pound or so after a loss like that!

My in-laws were in town this weekend, and they took the kids all day on Sunday--it was amazing. As soon as Marc got back from taking the kids to his grandparents' house (where my in-laws were staying), I made us go for a run together. I haven't exercised properly in 2 weeks (ugh), and I was just itching to get it done! Plus, we have never gotten to run together, so I wasn't about to waste this opportunity. It was close to 11 before we got out of the house, so it was already pretty hot out (haha, who am I kidding--it's hot at 7am here!). He's not much of a runner either, so I set our intervals to run 5 minutes, walk 2 minutes, 4 times. I kept telling Marc to start slow so he would actually make it to the final interval, but he wouldn't listen; I'm proud to say that I actually endured better than he did-- and he even gave me permission to brag! Haha.

Obligatory post-run selfie:

You can't really see it, but we're totally drenched in sweat.
Now I'm off to catch up on 3 days worth of blog posts, so don't be surprised when you suddenly see comments popping up!


  1. Awesome run! I love that being kid free made you want to run together. Usually if we get a kid free chance we end up on the couch. Go you!

    1. Haha--the day before, we were trying to figure out what we were going to do with our free time, and I joked that we'd probably end up just sitting on the couch, basking in the silence. I'm really glad we didn't wind up doing that!

  2. Hi Christina. Good job on getting the run in. It's fun to run or exercise with a partner. You look lovely in that picture. Occasional kid-free days must be delightful. Glad your in-laws could take the kids for a while.

    And thanks for the recommendation of the book. I'll definitely get that and read it. I am looking for as many new resources as possible at this time. :-)

  3. Glad to see you joining our little group! It gives me a great excuse to find a new blog. :) I'm jealous you got your hubby out to run with you! Mine never does but at least he tries to cheer me on. :)


Hi, and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I'd love to hear from you!
