Daycare Drop Off

My girls are both in full-time, year-round daycare.  Now that they’re both out of the infant/toddler age group, they start a “new” school year every September.  This year, they’ve been moved to the preschool and pre-K classes.  This is BigC’s last year in daycare and LittleC has 2 years to go.  So basically, in about 731 days, our household...

Getting over that “I don’t like you” feeling.

This post was originally entitled "Sometimes I don't like you but I always love you," but I've managed to edit my thoughts, and consequently this post before I ever officially published it here. This is awful but sometimes I feel like I just don't like my kids. I always love them but sometimes I can't stand them. The day I first...

Couch to 5K

I get a lot of questions about my experience with the popular running plan "Couch to 5K" also known as "C25K" so I thought I'd put it all down here. If you've never heard of C25K before, it is a 8 week running program that gradually increases your time and/or distance over the course of the 1/2 hour work out...

Drink my greens

You could say that I have a contradictory diet.  I consider myself to be a relatively healthy person, we eat local, we eat a lot of organic, etc.  However... It's no secret that I am addicted to the Golden Arches.  I go to Mickey D's on a regular basis WITH.MY.KIDS.   We eat "in the restaurant."   Your shocked silence and...

Mary’s First Fitness Friday!

Here's my first "Fitness Friday!" which is when I update you (because obviously you care) about my fitness goals / setbacks etc. (And I should note that I wrote this a few weeks ago -- but just go with it. You and I eventually be all caught up-to-date by next week.) The girls and I were on vacation with my...

Fitness Friday (first one!)

As you can tell, Mary & I pre-wrote this week's content so that we could have a TON of posts to share and introduce you to our little world.  One of the major sparks to ignite this little blog was our plan to support each other as we worked out and started running and getting into fitness.  So we decided to add weekly...

Are you having another baby

Let's just call the offender "she" because if I use "you," you Dear Reader, will feel like I'm blaming you. And I'm not blaming you. I don't even know how to bring this up because either she thought an acquaintance's fertility was fair game for casual conversation or she thought we were very close. We are not. Maybe someday we...

I’m Obsessed: Tone It Up

Before I purchased my boot camp Groupon last year, my fitness level was holding steady at "meandering stroll around the neighborhood at old lady pace."  I did a short post-maternity stint with the Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred DVD that I stole from my sister.  I got through 7 non-consecutive days, and was then sucked in by afternoon re-runs of...

Date Night(s).

Earlier this summer, I sent my little ladies off for a weekend with their grandparents before I headed off to work.  The Coach and I hadn't been on a date since April.  Date nights are an essential part of our family's survival kit.  Which means that...it's purely coincidental that we've all been so pleasant (civil, perhaps?) to each other...

I Wear a Fanny Pack

This is like confession meets product review. For serious though, I've been rocking a fanny pack. You're either wondering why or you've stopped reading having dismissed me as a boring fashion disaster. I like to listen to music when I work out (Post about what music specifically coming soon - get excited?). When I run on a treadmill, I just...
