MARATHON MONDAY: WDW Marathon, Week 10

Hiya Pals,

Welcome to Week 10 of my journey to the 2018 WDW Marathon! what happened to week 9...? 

:::Crickets:::

Week 9, didn't happen. Unfortunately, I've had a few set-backs, but now I am pleased to say we are back on track. 

Monday:
- Rest Day

Tuesday: 
  • Pilates 
    • 10 minutes, focused on my arms
  • 2.35 miles
    • 30 minutes
    • 12:46 MM pace
For this run I was inspired by Max. Prince Eric's faithful pup! To complete the look put on a simple white tank top paired with my Gun Metal Grey Sparkle Athletic skirt!  I was quite proud of myself on this run because I was able to maintain very close to my goal pace, something I didn't think I could do - after a couple weeks of missed runs. 


Wednesday: 
  •  Pilates
    • 10 minutes, arm focus 
Thursday: 
  • Pilates
    • 5 minutes, arm focus
  • 1:05 Miles
    • 12 minutes
    • 11:26 MM pace
For Thursdays run I was inspired by Olaf. I love his vibrant personality, and I thought a little inspiration from him would fuel my run and BOY did it ever! I had a goal to run 1 mile without stopping, and I did it!!! Not only did I accomplish the goal, I did it in under my goal pace! 

To create this look I grabbed a plastic carrot from my girls toy kitchen, and paired it with a white long sleeved running shirt and white Sparkle Athletic skirt! 




Weekend 

I didn't get an chance to get my long run in this weekend, I was organizing a Baby Shower for my sister in law, and visiting with my sister. 

Additionally, my oldest daughter spiked a fever that lasted over 24 hours so I took her to the pediatrician and had her checked for both the flu and strep throat. - Thankfully, both negative and she is fully recovered. However, another one of my girls now feeling sick. 


Can't wait to snuggle this sweet baby! 

This weekend was also the Dumbo Double Dare (Disneyland Half Marathon) weekend in California, I am so proud of my girl Lena for her accomplishments!   

Congratulations to all the finishers!

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'…
