Chasing my Fit: Rocky…rough…whew.



20140409-190419.jpgSo it's been a rocky last couple weeks. I've been weaning the baby and seeing a chiropractor to fix the back issues that were leading to a lot of running injuries. I say rocky because if you've ever weaned a baby, it takes a toll of you physically and emotionally. The chiropractic care had been all physical. My back being "fixed" meant it had to be adjusted out of the bad normal that it had grown to deal with and try to find the normal way it should be. Either way...last couple weeks have been rough.  And to top it weight went back up a little at the end of the weaning.  Hey, at least now I know that I won't have the crazy up and downs of my weight while nursing anymore.

Thankfully, I've been able to keep up with smaller feats like the squat challenge and short runs without pain.  Sometimes it really is the little things that keep you going!  Even found myself actually make my way into size smalls and 4s!!!!  Can you believe it?!?!  No matter what you hear...a great body is for sure made in the kitchen!
