moving on up

mocs: minnetonka; jeans: target; tee: stole from my mom; cardi: f21; necklace: truly sarah

ooh just an outfit for a lunch date with david last week!
since he'll be working on thursday, another little lunch date is as fancy as we'll be getting come valentine's day. yesterday was his day off, though, so he surprised me by arranging for megan to come keep joony company while we went snowboarding! 

i didn't go last winter because i was massively pregnant and there was no good snow (but mostly the pregnant thing), so i was a little rusty. also, being a mom makes me a lot more cautious than i used to be. no more shredding it up and hitting monster jumps for this girl, no siree. i imagine it would be awfully difficult to tend to joony with a broken back. 

even taking it easy, i still wiped out once or twice and pulled a little something-something in my right arm...and in my left side. yeowch. add sore thighs and calves on top of that, and we called it a successful valentine's day! and THEN i still went home a logged 3 miles on my treadmill. because you're not hard core unless you live hard core, or so jack black tells me.

it's been five years now since our first date, which was ALSO snowboarding at good old kelly canyon. it was fun to sit on those same scary-creaky-flimsy chair lifts with that same cute boy's arm around me, but  then to go home to our cozy home and little boy waiting for us instead of david's apartment with 5 roommates and a gross couch to cuddle on. BOOM. progress.

  2. Do you feel with as much as you run that you are able to still produce enough breast milk? I am nursing and love it but struggle to take in enough calories and worry about working out and milk supply... thoughts?

    1. running has definitely changed things more than i thought it would! i'm eating 2 of almost every meal these days and i still feel hungry all. the. time. luckily, joony is still growing and on the move all the time, so i know he's getting enough to eat. he's also starting to show interest in foods other than breast milk, so he's getting nutrition that way, too.

      foods that are high in fiber and calcium (getting your fruits and veggies in) will help keep your supply up. i don't think there's any reason exercising should affect nursing, you just need to be eating enough to compensate for the loads of calories you're burning! i always start to feel guilty for how much i eat, and then i have to check myself--"joony is burning a ton of calories crawling around, i'm running 3+ miles every day, and i'm sustaining the BOTH of us! EAT EAT EAT!"

      also, here's a recipe for lactation cookies! yesss.

      good luck! email me at hello.brandilyn@gmail.com if you ever want to talk running or nursing. i'm loving both and always love a good convo about it :) (whew, long response)
