I'm Not Fat Yet.

I didn't get fat again, despite popular assumptions about prolonged absences of bloggers in this particular community.  *lolz*  Current stats are on the sidebar  (155.6 lbs).

My blog was looking pretty wrecked and it took me a while to figure out how to fix it so that the sidebar appeared where it should and whatnot.  But I'z smart and I eventually figured it out.  Go me.

Pickle turned SIX MONTHS old recently.  Holy shit.  Half a year.  Seems like a lifetime, but what an amazing half year it has been.  I can devote a whole blog to poop and boobs alone.  Which I may do.  But not now.

One thing about raising an infant is that time is limited and precious.  "Thank you, Captain Obvious," right?  It's not that I have no time, but I do have to spend it wisely.  I have 90 minutes or so in the morning to get my daily shit together before I go into full on Working Mama Mode.  That means I have two options:

1.  Blog about how I don't have time to work out; or
2.  Work out.

I chose Option 2.  And the Work Out option works out.  Even when Pickle gets up early in the morning, I have found ways to incorporate Mommyhood into my fitness regimen:

See?  He works out (tummy time, rolling, playing) while I work out.

He is also useful as an extra set of weights.

I have so much more to blog about, but I don't have time.  And these veggies and hummus sitting on my desk aren't going to eat themselves.  I will still be popping in from time to time (who knows, maybe even more frequently than once every 4-5 months), but for now, ciao!

P.S. --I also had to change my side-bar "about me" to reflect the fact that I am no longer "30-something."  Hello middle age, nice to meet ya!

P.S.S. (or is it P.P.S.?)--Hang in there, Lacey.  He's in good hands and you'll be with him soon.


  1. Welcome to the Middle-Aged Club. We aren't as cool as the young cats but we make more money. Go us!

  2. Hey there. I'm glad you posted. I went away and came back too, but unlike you I actually did get fat. Not quite as fat, but fat. I'm woorking it back off again.

    Second, least we have more money.

  3. Hey girl, glad to hear from you!!! The boy is getting so big! Looks like you've got this whole motherhood thing down. :)

  4. The forties aren't that bad.... well, I'm still adjusting, but there's something nice about not having it hanging over your head anymore, yanno?

    That child is darling. Well done.

  5. I'm so happy you've got your priorities in order! Blog when you can; otherwise, I'll assume you're taking care of business and having fun!

    You are having fun, aren't you?

  6. I'm really glad to hear things are good with you and the Pickle.

  7. COMPLETELY laughing and JackShts response.
    and nodding.
    or as filled with vigor as my middle aged neck will allow ;)


  8. Hi, you stopped by my blog and that's cool, but I don't understand your comment. Spam?

  9. I have to ask...what's Pickle going to be for Halloween? A baby zombie?
