Hello Mornings -- Second Month Update

I realized I hadn't posted a second month update -- so here it is a week or so late :)

Overall it is still going well.  We went on vacation at the end of February which threw me off for a few days when we got back (I did not get up early on vacation and my kiddo was waking up earlier than his "usual").  As I mentioned before, I definitely notice the difference between days I am able to have at least a half an hour to myself and the days he gets up soon after I do.  Even if he gets up earlier than I expect, I try to get a short version of my devos in while he watches a cartoon. 

As the weather has warmed up the last few weeks, I've been able to go running a handful of times.  I was surprised how much I missed it -- especially since I can run on gravel roads again!  To make it work though, I have to plan ahead in order to finish my run before my husband has to leave for the day... which doesn't work if he's not at home!  I've thought about a jogging stroller so I could go other times of the day but there is something special about running alone on a gravel road in the morning -- especially if there's a little fog or some wildlife near the pond.

I've been thinking about signing up for a 5K this summer to help keep my exercise goals a priority.  I asked my husband if he'd run with me as he's been running on treadmills when travelling quite frequently (about 4 miles each time).  He gave me a definite "no" declaring he does not run in public :)  He has been great in encouraging my new habits though and hasn't grumbled when my alarm goes off early on his day to sleep in.

  1. All good stuff. The running in public thing is so funny:). I can almost hear him saying it!
