Stress Eating

I hate stress eating.  I hate that I know that I'm stress eating and I still do.  I'm still trying to pin point exactly why I'm stressed, but now I feel like I'm starting to stress about my eating, which is a vicious cycle.

I miss feeling fit and healthy.  I know I need to work out.  I need to make time to do it and stop finding excuses.

I miss feeling a part of a faith community.  I need to get my butt back in church.

I miss the longer days.  I truly feel like I have seasonal affective disorder.  I keep saying maybe I should try a light but never try it.

Those are the major things on my mind right now.

I also miss sleeping in, but that's just a whine, not a real stressor.

Race for the Cure 2013

This past Sunday was Baltimore's Race for the Cure.  I initially didn't sign up because I'm taking the pediatric boards tomorrow and thought I would be studying.  I realized I needed some time to relax and wanted to support my family, so off we went!  This is the first 5K I fully ran in probably 3-4 years.  It wasn't a great finish time, but I ran it!

Mom, Dad and Bri did the one mile family walk.  I am so happy to say that Mom is almost one year cancer free now!  She has a couple more founds of Herceptin and then she'll get her port out and be done :)

I decided to wean

Shortly after 14 months I decided to wean and stop breastfeeding this beautiful gal.  When I went back to work just after her first birthday I decided to only breastfeed morning and night.  I was starting to feel a little violated though.  It seemed as soon as I came home from work, she was reaching for me, either lifting my shirt or putting her hand down my shirt.  I feel like she was mostly nursing for comfort, so I decided to stop.  I was fortunate enough to be able to nurse her for over 14 months; the transition has gone well.  After about two days she stopped reaching for me and now our bed time routine consists of more reading and cuddling.  My baby girl is growing up.
