As promised, progress photos! How appropriate that Summer is nearing it’s end and I’ve reached a few goals. Unfortunately I won’t be able to give you the number of inches I may or may not have lost along with pounds dropped because I honestly don’t own a scale. However, for me, the pictures are worth a thousand words and I’m quite proud. I haven’t counted calories.. ever, god forbid I use math in my day to day. I run 4mi, 20 push ups followed by 60 sit ups & 40 squats with a 5lb ball 4-5 times a week. These past 2.5 months have been a game changer for me. Let’s all just hope I learn to be a Winter runner *fingers crossed* for sanity purposes.
What a long hiatus! Even my Instagram account is feeling the neglect since I’ve gone into Littlest Crochet Shop gear. Unfortunately I don’t see much change in the future, god willing my days will get busier and busier.
With that being said, you may be proud to hear I’ve managed to keep up with my goal of maintaining 4mi morning runs (INJURY FREE!!) Ideally I will be running 4mi 5 days a week.
What you should expect on the blog: The occasional photo via @HealthyMomRuns on Instagram & a monthly post on family/ running updates.
If you feel yourself missing Lily and myself ;) be sure to Follow LittlestCrochetShop.tumblr.com where we’ve been in over drive building our small business or Follow @HealthyMomRuns on Twitter, I’m pretty good about updating and participating in Sunday #runchat s (when my phone isn’t dead and I’m not putting the little one to bed)
I’ve found that most of my running pals all of a sudden feel themselves being sucked back into the real world, post summer days. I can’t help but be a little relieved that I’m not the only one :D

Dog Days of Summer
Sometimes I wonder how long I can go without forking out $100 for new shoes and insoles. Then I remember it is the dumbest challenge I have ever given myself.
Even after receiving some glorious birthday cash, I haven’t been able to bite the bullet and go for. Its mostly hard to not invest in something for our family, I can’t be the only mom thinking this.
Is there something you’ve always wanted but never mustered up the courage to be a tad selfish?
Felt awful tonight. Needless to say, I collapsed at three #runchat #fitness
Took a long lunch at the park with Lilypad #fitness #workout #runchat
