Diary Of An Exhausted, Blessed Mamma, And This Week In Food And Fitness

Hi, all!

This week has really tested me. Just when I thought I was on the mend from whatever illness that had creeped up on me, Monday proved otherwise. I felt bad all day, and my 2 month old has been extremely demanding lately. Usually, I’m able to keep up with her, but with not feeling well I was struggling. Monday evening was the worst of it, but I felt bad all the way through Thursday.

There were times I wanted to cry because she needed my attention, and I needed sleep.

Yes, her face is covered in milk. I cleaned her right after this haha.

Mom life doesn’t stop just because you aren’t 100 percent.

I powered through the week, and woke up today feeling SO much better. I have had so much fun playing with my busy baby today.

I guess this is just a reminder to myself that even when the days are long, that sweet face smiles at you and it makes everything worth it.

Sweet girl with her daddy (hence the hairy legs lol)!!!

As for a food a food and fitness update…

I felt good enough for normal food and some excercise by Wednesday. My mom watched the baby while I went to a barbell strength class and picked up lunch at Northstar Cafe.

My wonderful mom visits each Wednesday to hang out with us and lets me sneak off to the gym. She is moving here this summer and I can’t wait!!

The only other workouts this week have been the elliptical and bike. I’m hoping baby has a decent nap today so I can do a hiit workout.

Last night, the hubs and I had a frozen garlic chicken and pasta meal. Baby was bathed and in bed by 8. I am loving this bedtime. She has slept so well lately and I am praying it continues.

That’s about all for today! We have a super busy weekend.

Have a good one!

With love,

Carly

    1. That’s sure what I’ve heard! The days may be long, but the years go by quickly. She has already changed so much in 10 weeks! Thank you!! It’s important for me to get to workout…it has always been an outlet for me.

  1. I am so happy to hear you are feeling better! Moms have all my respect…I can’t imagine being sick and exhausted and having a little face looking at me for food and entertainment! When I eventually become a mom and this happens for me I’ll be looking at this post for inspiration. You’re incredible!
