My weight, plus another race and tumbles

July 30, 2012

Dear Max

I’m always thrilled to blog about a weekend of yours that was filled with more terrific times than tantrums, and more winning than whining. And this was one of them.

I think that preparing you for what’s to come is helping you to embrace what is. For example, before we leave for somewhere, I explain fully where we’re going and who will be there, and I’m finding that you’re more chilled and confident settling into new environments. Maybe it’s just coincidental, but ever since I started spelling things out, you’ve been way more relaxed. I’m pretty much the same – I like knowing as much as possible about what I can expect at a function/race/event etc.

On Friday night at a Shabbat dinner, I was worried that you’d be fazed by all the people there, but you were awesome and in a great space. You ate quite a bit, demonstrating your taste for rather expensive food – you hoovered two large helpings of salmon!

On Saturday afternoon we hung out at Serendipity and you had a ball. Lately you’ve been a bit clingy there, but this time I barely saw you. You swung, you tumbled, you rode and you ran around. Warning: please always hold onto the swings. I think I lost a year of my life panicking when you let go.

Yesterday we ran another 10km which taught me two things: I’m bloody unfit, and I’m bloody unfit. I could barely push myself up the hills, let alone you and your jogger. You had a great time, and have taken to drinking some water and Coke at water points like runners do.

On the weight front, I’ve lost 1.8kg and I’m hoping I didn’t eat it back in ice cream on Friday night. Usually the beginning of a diet will yield the best results, but here’s hoping I can keep up some loss.

Love ya dude,

    I went to Serendipity with some Mommy friends when Kade was a wee one – didn’t really enjoy it but I see pics of your guys there and I’m like I need to try it again now that Kade is mobile and bigger.

    And u look so skinny in that last pic, I can’t imagine that you need to lose much more weight (as discussed on twitter this weekend)
