Yo Ho - Yo Ho - A Runner's life for me ...

First of all, I'd like to thank my parents for allowing me to love Mickey Mouse. I must (sadly) admit that it is Mickey Mouse who has inspired much of my running.

There is nothing like the feeling of sweat dripping down your back as you jog through a theme park. Okay, I know ... I'm the girl who blogged about "looking cute" ... But ... that was before I ran my first Disney 5k! I've grown as a person - it's okay to look bad in a theme park (as long as you are a part of RunDisney). (Just kidding  - it's your vacation, you can dress however you want!)

RunDisney has truly opened a whole new world of fun and re-kindled my love for the mouse.

Okay - I'm not entirely sure why I blogged all the gobbly-gue about who knows what.
My intention for this blog was to share my upcoming goals.

I'd like to personally thank my loving husband for introducing me to the Mi coach application. He has used the app for several months and has been doing really well with his work outs.

Mi coach is an application developed by Adidas. It's well worth the (free) download. It's like your own personal trainer (Reggie Bush) in your head phones.

In order to continue to push myself, I've decided to train for a 1/2 Marathon. Starting Sunday, I (and Reggie Bush) will be training 5 days a week for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I'm really excited and hope that this new training schedule will continue to help me achieve my weight loss goals. (I'm doing pretty well - I think)

Plan 1 - Run a 1/2 Marathon (5 days a week of training)
Plan 2 - Running Technique (3 days a week of training)

***Don't worry! I'm eating enough calories - and resting (no exercise) at least 1 sometimes 2 days a week***

Okay - before I end this post ... I must admit. I had to google who Reggie Bush was. ... I was a little embarrassed to learn that he plays for the Miami Dolphins. ... Oops!

Just in case I'm not the only one who doesn't know who Reggie Bush is, here is the link to his Wikipedia page.

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

Tips for taking your Toddlers to the Magic Kingdom - AFTER Bedtime!

Hiya Pals!

In an attempt to capture as many beautiful memories of the days when we traveled through Disney with three toddlers, I have brought my Youtube Channel back to life!

In my most recent vlog, I share several tips on how to have an amazing time in the Magic Kingdom with your toddlers after they are typically in bed. You can find three of the tips listed below.

Tip 1  Make sure children are well rested. Since we live about 5 hours from Walt Disney World, our children are often asleep most of the time we are driving. Since it's next to impossible to get them to go to sleep once we get to our hotel room, we opt for a few hours of fun in the parks. 
Tip 2 Have a plan.  We decided to grab fast passes for the Princesses and Peter Pan because those activities typically have a long line. In order to make the most of our evening, we only did things located inside Fantasy Land. This helped maximise our time inside the parks. 
Tip 3 Utilize the Baby Center!  We always head to the baby c…

MOM HACKS: Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth!

Remember when you were pregnant, and everything seemed to glow? 
If you, like me, find yourself sweeping up enormous amounts of hair from you floor, or constantly cleaning your shower drains and vacuum cleaners, fear not. 
You are NOT alone. 
Our hair goes through different cycles. There will be times when your hair is in a state of rest, and then will shed. According to what I've read, when you are not expecting, you loose about 100 hairs a day. However, once you become pregnant, your body slows down the cycles. Thus, keeping those 100 hairs nicely on your head.

Once your beautiful baby is born, and your hormones start to go back to normal... the cycle returns and your hair begins to fall. With all three of my pregnancies, this happened between 3-5 months postpartum. It's quite unfortunate that just about the time I was feeling like a human, and getting the hang of motherhood my hair started falling out.

Now that I've gone through this process three times, I thought I'…
