A year later, a lot better

This morning wasn’t a good morning. Despite my best intentions last night I didn’t get up early to go for a run. I was tired and I was cranky and I just didn’t go. But I did put on sweats before taking the kids to daycare with the thought that I might go for a run before doing some work.

As I was driving to the daycare it occurred to me that instead of running around our neighborhood I could take advantage of the mild weather and go for a serious walk, like around The Dish, a four mile hilly loop right next to the Stanford campus. Pretty, but challenging. A fitting combo for a grumpy morning.

I climbed up the first hill and ran down to the next one. Then I did it again, and again until I’d been running/walking for a half an hour and I was more than three fourths of the way around. I breathed deeply (more to smell the air than to catch my breath) and I looked around at the incredible vista. Golden hills and gorgeous scenery as far as the eye could see. I felt good from all the running and proud of myself for getting out.

As I looked around me I remembered the first time I strapped tiny Little L to my chest and struggled around the loop. It was almost a year ago to the day. She was 6 weeks old and I was 25lbs over my pre-baby weight. Little L slept all the way while I huffed and I puffed my way up the hills. I didn’t think I could make it all the way around. Frankly I don’t think I would have if a friend hadn’t come to my rescue.

Today Little L is 13 months old and I’m only 5lbs over my pre-baby weight. I ran well over one third of the loop and I speed walked the rest. Instead of taking an hour and a half to get back to my car I made it in under 45 minutes.

I smiled as I walked back to my car. It’s been a bear of a year. I’ve struggled with my work, with my weight, and with finding a balance for everything. But today made me realize that I’m slowly pulling it together. I’m getting in shape. I’m controlling my eating. I’m doing work I love. And I’m enjoying life again. I’m in a good place.

You know, except for the occasional grumpy morning here and there.
