Putting C25K on hold...

I just don't have the time to do it right now.  Kate is still too small to go in a jogging stroller so, any of my runs had to be when Alex was home.  Unfortunately, Alex's time at home has been very limited these days. 

Alex's direct supervisor has been dealing with major medical issues (a stroke a few weeks back and a heart attack last week) and is out of the office indefinitely.  Because of this, Alex has taken over all of his supervisor's responsibilities on top of his day to day activities.  This also means that Alex has to cover his supervisor's on call schedule as well - making him on call 2 weeks a month.  While the extra on call money is a nice perk (especially since I got my last pay check on Friday) the demand is insane. 

So, while C25K is on hold, operation get my body back is still on!

I have enrolled in Mommy Boot Camp: Stroller Session at the Houston Motherhood Center.  Basically is it a fitness boot camp designed for Moms trying to get in shape post baby - and an added benefit is that the exercises are all based around having your baby and stroller with you! 

This is the best of both worlds!  I can work out and I don't have to wait for Alex to watch the baby!  The class meets 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and lasts for about 6 weeks!  We practiced strolling/ sitting in our big girl seat today since we will use it during our class!

By the time I finish this class, Kate will be almost 4 months old and hopefully ready to run with momma!

You better believe this beauty will be on my Christmas wish list so Kate and I can C25K in style!

I'm glad you found a class to take! You'll love it!

And I know it is so awful to feel like a single mom while your husband slaves away at work...but yes - the paychecks are nice. I know you'll be happy when he gets to spend some more time at home.

Sounds like a great class!
