Day 1

May 3, 2014


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 🙂

    Glad you survived! I know you know this, but it does get easier.

    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?

    Glad it went well.

    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 🙂

      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, 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!
