Freedom with a Touch of Disappointment!


This week marks 6 weeks since I had my gorgeous baby girl and I couldn’t have been any more excited. I have been itching for a good run or workout for the last two weeks. Let me tell you my experience returning for my check up was much more exciting than with my son. First of all I have a two year old who has copious amounts of energy and no fear whatsoever! Second…well, really there is no second, just a crazy two year old. I did not even think about leaving my son home with a sitter, because I just bring my kids everywhere with me – big mistake. On your average day I can hand my son our tablet and he will watch his movies until I pry it from him hands at the end of his show. But of course for those ten minutes while you are being examined by the doctor, he wants nothing to do with the beloved tablet. Which is how I ended up laying on the lovely exam table, spread eagle, with my son on my chest just to keep him contained from licking the bio-hazard bin or destroying the numerous Mirena brochers he loves throwing around due the toy truck on front. Good thing my doctor likes kids and can just chuckled a bit in what I can only hope is amazement. Lesson learned and exam passed! Freedom is mine and I can start getting back to my normal workout routine.

Now you may have noticed my title today is “Freedom with a Touch of Disappointment” this is because I am free to run and workout, but my BOB Duallie Pro-Revolution that I convinced my husband was necessary to buy to run with both children is unusable for running. It seems BOB has come out with a new 2016 BOB Stroller and a new car seat adapter, which would seem shouldn’t affect me as I purchased the 2015 version when they were on sale for Memorial Day (Note: Memorial Day and Black Friday are great times to get discounts on strollers). But apparently they have discontinued making the car seat adapters all together and will not have the new version out until mid-July. I realize this is only two weeks away, but with only seven weeks to train for the Spartan Beast, I need everyday I can get. Plus, this is my “freedom” from the inside of my house. I still love my BOB Stroller, but BOB needs to get it together as many parent rely on these strollers for fitness, freedom, fun and most importantly, sanity. That daily walk or run can be the difference to a happy mommy and a cranky mom-zilla!!!

Frustrated rant over, my husband came to my rescue! He kept my son, while I got in 1.25miles around the neighborhood with my daughter. It felt great to run, definitely a bit out of shape, things jiggled more than before and a good reminder of the importance of a supportive bra! Workout number 1 in the books, only 60 days left till Breckenridge Spartan Beast and this mom of two is officially back!
