April and May have been pretty crazy around my house! Throughout April we were busy trying to get ourselves organized for our new baby's arrival. Then, on May 9th, we welcomed Baby Maya into our lives. Since then, my enjoyment of our newborn has only been interrupted by a recent change in my work schedule that has me flying back and forth across the country on back-to-back red eyes, working 12 and 18-hour days, and losing sleep while I toss and turn thinking about my exploding "to do" list.
Throughout ALL of this, I am hanging on to my fitness goals by the skin of my teeth! I'm making it to the gym only 2 to 3 days a week, so I make sure to give 110% when I'm there. I haven't had a lot of control over what or when I get to eat, so I've incorporated a lot of intermittent fasting to try to span the gap between healthy meal options. Overall, I'm still on track! I'm still getting leaner week by week and definitely getting stronger. I'm still motivated and I'm finding that I value my workout time more than ever as a chance to turn off my mind and experience the flow of movement and music that happens when I turn on my iPod and get to work.
I've really missed writing for you folks...really missed it! But I'm happy to say, "I'm back!" Please keep an eye out in the next few weeks for some great posts. More workout ideas, more reflections, more photos and progress reports. I'm sorry for the "radio silence" over the last few weeks and I hope we can pick up where we left off.
