 I'm going to do it.

I'm going to take the plunge and just do it.

It's not that hard and I've done it before.

The reason I hadn't started this already, is because I'm afraid to work out.

I'm afraid it's going to hurt me, my stomach, my chest, my supply, or just plain stink.

I know I have to just try it and if it feels good, keep doing it.

I can't psych myself out.

The plan:  Tonight, I'm going to do it.  I'm going to start the program and see where it takes me.  I know it's not going to be easy, but I've got to try.  I'm going to nurse Coen, hand him off to S and head out.  I'm going to wear a supportive bra, drink lots of water leading up to this adventure and I'm just going to go out and do it.

I will not fail.

I will succeed.

Just getting out of the house (and off the couch) will mean that I've done it and taken the first steps to doing it more often.

It's exciting, but I'm still nervous.

As I've shared about my weight, postpartum, I was fortunate enough to lose it all.  Not my challenge has been to keep losing it.  I've been jumping around a little and have been as low as 8lbs less than my pre-pregnancy weight, but I haven't been able to keep it there or lose more.  Hopefully that will change a bit once I start running again. 

We'll see.

I have a few neighbor friends that are interested in running too and while I'd love to have a running partner, I have to attempt to do this on my own.

I will succeed.

I will.

Best of luck!!

(I never worked out either after my girls because I was terrified it would decrease my supply...or maybe that was my excuse?? Either way, I am going to need some motivation this winter to start exercising after baby boy arrives. I may join you then!)

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
