Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

Darn it, I jait gave away a ton of newborn clothing! But, I have two special newborn/ small things that I had a sentimental attachment to and didn't want to part with, but I know you would give them a good home!

Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

Denise, I have an exersaucer and I think a baby chair you can have. Strollers/carriers. The only stroller i have liked (and I have tried a few) is the BOB. LOVE it, works well on snow and is comfy for kids from baby to bigger (G fits in it still, he doesn't go in it but he fits!). I bought the car s...

Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

I found that with babies one and two I lost right at the start then held on to the last 10ish lbs until they hit a year or so. This time I better get rid of that last 8lbs when B hits a year (in two weeks). Fingers crossed.

I just wanted to pop in to say I am in awe of all you mommas running! I have been continually sidelined with an injury that does not want to get better (seriously, I am sooo sick of limping!), but hope that a rest from babywearing/stroller pushing to school and back will give my achilles the rest it...

Re: On the topic of Selling/Buying Race Bibs ...

So how much longer until the "secondary market" for some of these races is controlled by opportunistic scalpers? (Specifically, buying one or more bibs with no intent to run and then reselling above purchase price.) I don't know anything about concert ticket scalping, but in sports the wh...

Re: Ham roast dinner?

Ham is "cured" as opposed to "cooked" so you're really just heating it through. You don't have to worry about the inside not being cooked if you take it out too soon. Worst case is it's not hot enough in the middle. It's not like turkey where you'd end up with raw meat in the mi...

Re: Marathon Training with a Full-Time Job

The whole point of the article (and the photo Turd posted echoes this), is that people who are inclined to run marathons are already high achievers, so they figure out a way to get everything done. My point is that "busy" is often an excuse. "I'm too busy to run" usually means &...

I just spoke to my farmer and she told me it is the thigh, also called the "ham shank" part. Umm, gross. I talked to a chef at the market and she told me to shave off the skin (gulp!) then cut gashes in it and brine it a bit, the cook on high 450 then down to 325. Oh dear. Anyone want to c...

Ham roast dinner?

I am planning one for next weekend (birthdays for D and my mom). The problem is, I don't know how to make ham (I am a longtime vegetarian), or how to put sides with it. We don't eat food with sides generally, we are more a curry/stir fry/Mexican etc one pot family. So, side ideas? We will have lots ...

Re: Fresh20 - Meal Planning Service

Is it seasonal at all (like do they have you buying fall produce for the most part?). Interested but I try to buy seasonal produce (and we have a CSA box) and I am worried about waste. And I also don't eat tofu much, if you get any veggie menus can you let me know the types of foods please? Thanks!

The important thing is to give your body time to heal and yourself time to adapt to the changes being a parent brings. This. It will be different for every person and every pregnancy. I had a 3rd degree tear after my first that was very sore. I was up to 8km after 4 months. After my 2nd I ran 6 wee...

I function on coffee mostly. I am currently brewing cup #3 of the day. It is actually not too bad, I go to bed at 9pm most days.

And yes IG- that one (or sometimes two) days a week is amazing! :)
