Day 1

May 3, 2014

I SURVIVED!

Also, I:

* did not cry all day

* felt somewhat weird about how I did not feel all that emotional about it all, but maybe I was just feeling too panicky to really process anything

* pumped 14 oz while C drank 12 oz (yay!).  (Side note: I have to say that pumping in my own office with a hospital-grade pump is SOOOOO much nicer/more efficient than the setups I had during fellowship.  Maybe it therefore will be easier this time.  The only catch is that it felt easy today because I had a completely empty schedule.  Heh.)

Currently celebrating with wine and (very soon) The Mindy Project.  Tech-free goals going strong!  Happy weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Strong work! Can I cast in a vote for it being better than last time because of your increased perspective, sufficient help, and overall togetherness as a mom?

    Totally unrelated, but look at your skin! Glowing! And love the eyebrows! Do you shape them yourself? How about a beauty routine post? And maybe a professional woman’s daily make-up guide? I’m just starting out and would love some tips!

      that is so sweet – your comment made me happy! however, i think it’s probably just good lighting! i wish i had a good skincare routine; i definitely do not. i am not even good about wearing sunscreen . . in miami beach. terrible (although could be responsible for some of the glow, eek).

      i get my eyebrows waxed mostly because i am lazy and this way i don’t have to think about them as often.

      finally, my makeup routine is also pretty bare-bones — just eyeshadow and mascara! sometimes a swipe of lip balm but usually not.

    Yes, you look amazing!

    On a side note, can you share with us which phone Apps you use? Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

      which apps? sure i could definitely do a post . . although i am far from an iphone superuser! would love to get ideas from others though. my most used are probably mapmyrun, podcruncher (for podcasts), maps, the kindle app for reading, diapers.com/amazon apps for shopping, feedly for reading blogs (though currently avoiding it!)

    I am not sure if you are familiar with Tiny Habits but I recently did one week and loved it LOVED it. Pretty simple premise – to make three tiny changes for one week. You can sign up for their program (free) and they help guide you on crafting your goals and send daily email check-ins. No I don’t work for them, just found it to be very helpful.

    Not to say you need help with habits or setting goals, just a different approach that helped me and may help you as well.

    Also, you look fab in the pic with Ms. A!
