Wow, the last time I checked in I was 8 months pregnant...and ended up having a baby just 5 days later!
It's so cliché to say "oh how time flies" but it really is true as we get older, with or without a baby. I now have an 8 1/2 month old... Read more
May is my favorite month-and I cannot believe how fast it went!
My workouts have definitely decreased in length & intensity over the past month. I still try to do low impact Turbofire HIIT workouts and T25 workouts, but more of ... Read more
April is over & my favorite month of the year is here--May!! May is usually just so beautiful, the weather is warming up, plus I celebrate my birthday & wedding anniversary. Oh, and we get a day off work for Memorial Day. I just love it!

Oh my gosh, March has flown by (I know we still have today left, but I figured I'd get my update in a bit early).
This month it started to feel like Spring in the Midwest. I've gotten to spend several nights after work walking t... Read more
My workouts this month have been mostly Body Revolution, a few prenatal workouts I've found online, and some T25. I am still having trouble balancing cardio & strength, and am really looking forward to warmer weather to get outside ... Read more
January 2015 Check In
One month of 2015 already gone. Time really does fly the older you get!
I've been sticking to working out 5 days a week, although I've taken most of the intensity out of workouts. I do occasional T25 or Insanity Max workouts us... Read more
Although the month isn't officially over, I thought I'd do my December check-in since I don't foresee anything crazy happening in the next 48 hours.
December actually started off with some excitement. We got to see our baby for the first... Read more
I realized I didn't post a check-in for November, and as I look back, I realize there wasn't much to report. I'm not sure I took much for pictures, and with the exception of Thanksgiving, I don't think my calendar had much to boas... Read more
Although I hate winter, I do enjoy fall, mostly because of the colors. And I have decided October is one of my favorite months. The weather is usually mild, the trees are full of brilliant colors, and it isn't yet dark when I get home from wor... Read more
September was pretty awesome. I was a little sad as it was the month our baby would have been born, if not for our miscarriage in January. But I got to spend the month with a lot of my favorite people, and for that, my heart is lightened!

I'm really behind...so here is August in (mostly) pictures...
The rock cover band my husband was briefly in had a show at one of my favorite bars. I was so excited that my parents were able to make the show-and managed to stay for until it... Read more
It sounds so cliche, but where has the summer gone?! The weather in the Midwest has been so unseasonably cool, I hardly feel like we've had summer at all (but my hair is loving the lack of humidity!)
On the morning of the 4th of July, I ra... Read more
June Check In
Another month has passed. Some days I feel like I've made progress with my health and fitness goals, other days I feel like I'm still stuck at square one. I am still having a hard time with consistency when it comes to eating on the weekends. ... Read more
It's been over a month since my last check-in. Not sure how many people are keeping up with me, but if nothing else, checking in with myself isn't a bad idea.
On May 10th, I went in for my fourth IUI (first w/ new donor; first after miscar... Read more

Quick Check In
Wow, no post in 3 months! I don't know where I've been but a lot has happened, I supposed.
On December 29, 2013, my husband and I FINALLY got a positive pregnancy test. After more than 4 years of trying, a fertility treatment worked. We ... Read more
