Blog every day catch up...

Oops, ok so I missed two days. This challenge is getting challenging. I have had a sick wee boy at home the last couple of days so haven't really had much time for blogging between taking care of him and catching up on some zzzzz's myself during the day. But here is my catch up post for the last two days, plus today :)

Day 15, Wednesday: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day - this could be "a photo an hour" if you'd like)

Well, I am thinking that I might do this one another day as the last couple of days have just pretty much consisted of me looking after bubs and doing the boring things around the home, so we'll leave this 'catch-up' post for a more interesting day.

Day 16, Thursday: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it

Hmmmm, I never want to be the one to complain about things, especially not by using social media. Not going to lie I am not a fan of people using their blogs or facebook or twitter to let everyone know how suckful their life is. So I am not going to become that person now. Instead, I am going to tell you about my challenge with the fact that I am going to be running a marathon in almost 5 months time... Eek!

I know that 5 months is a long way away but I have been just going for runs of 6 or 7 kms and they are HARD!! I don't know if it's because I just had a baby or the fact that I am running with one arm while the other pushes the buggy or what (probably very legitimate reasons but I think I am more using them as excuses). But something has to change. To overcome this I am going to try to amp it up to three runs a week, currently been doing two, and then build my weekend run up to an hour and a half. I think this consistent running will make it a bit easier (I hope) to get going well with my training plan when it starts in 6 weeks. EEK! 

Motivation to run a marathon... Running Poster in Blue!
Too True!

To overcome this obstacle, which is actually mostly mental, I need to believe I can do it and start thinking positive. That is hard because I compare myself with how fit I used to be and how easy running used to be but I need to stop. 
Day 17, Friday: A favorite photo of yourself and why

24-3-07 - Our wedding day x
This is me on my wedding day when I was just putting on my wedding dress. I love this photo for two reasons...
1. I will probably never look that good again
2. It was the start of the best adventure of my life which just keeps getting better every day. I love being married to my best friend and doing this adventure called life with him.

What obstacles do you have to overcome? 

Best day of your life?
Definitely a tie with wedding day and birth of our boy
