Trails, Strollers And The Stomach Bug

*Affiliate Links
Procompression.comWhat a title right? But trails, jogging strollers and the stomach bug has been my last week or so.

I was able to get out on the trail last week with a friend. It was my first time to run 8 miles on the Appalachian Trail. I love the views! And I can't wait to do more.

It's not always easy to get up super early, but with views like this, it definitely makes it worth while. 

We woke up Saturday
to Lil Man being super cranky and just not himself. It didn't take long to realize why. He had the stomach bug - yuck - double yuck - triple yuck. I'm still trying to get the smell out of the carpet and the couch. Thankfully it didn't last long and by the end of the day he was much better. By Sunday, he seemed perfectly fine.

However, it appears that he shared with me - sigh - double sigh - triple sigh. Needless to say, today has not been fun. But I am feeling better, and I didn't want to be stuck in the house all day. So when I got to feeling a little better, Lil Man and I went out for a short run. It was hot and humid, and I wasn't feeling my best. But we got in 2.75 miles by the river in our town. 

It was the first time we'd run there with the stroller. He loved it, and we found some more loops we can add on to make it longer. 

He wanted to keep going. My stomach said no way. Thankfully this bug seems short lived.

  1. What a beautiful place to run! Can I be just a little jealous?

    1. I have to say it is beautiful for sure! I miss the south and the Southern hospitality but it sure it pretty here. So I can't complain about that!

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
