First, I almost forgot to pull a winner from the For Two Fitness giveaway last week… can I blame that on pregnancy brain? It’s Christina (the one who said she is currently 15 weeks pregnant) ….. congrats!!
So how is the 5 by the 5th challenge going? This is the second month. Did you push [...]

It’s Wednesday again! I did remember to catch my eats for WIAW, but before I dive in, I wanted to share a few things about running lately.
I’m just over 19 weeks and halfway through the second trimester (and the pregnancy- how did that happen?!) So far, running has been very similar [...]

Happy Monday! How was your weekend?
We had a nice, relaxing weekend and even got some baby stuff done. (Somehow, we’re nearly halfway!!)
I took a bunch of clothes to a mom’s group swap, but seriously lucked out. There were very few expecting moms- most were dropping off baby gear, so we came home with [...]

It’s Sunday again! How’s your weekend going?
We took off on Friday to spend a family day in NYC. We caught a kd-friendly show at New Victory Theater (Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds), went to Chelsea Market, got dinner and topped it off with ice cream. It made for a busy day, but hopefully some [...]

Pregnancy has reminded me that running has cycles and phases. And in fact, it gives me comfort because I know I’m not necessarily “losing” fitness when I’m not running at my peak miles and intensity. Each phase has an important role.
Do you plan out your running (or training) with cycles?

I’m glad many of you enjoyed the post on cravings yesterday… I love learning and sharing this stuff! I find it so fascinating how brilliant our bodies are, and the more we can learn to tune in and listen, the more we can learn to set ourselves up for best health and wellness.
