I am a little troubled by the ups and downs I see on my scale. I usually weigh myself on Saturdays for my team challenge weigh in, but I usually do a check-in on Wednesdays which I feel gives me a little peek into how I'm doing so far for the ... Read more

Wow, 10 days until my due date. However, given that this is my first pregnancy, I'm guessing I will probably go past my due date. Either way, it's exciting, but I'm sure the anticipation/waiting will get to me. We went to a wedding last night... Read more

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I am thankful for so much. However, something inside of me feels that if I am too happy for what I have, my fortune will turn. What is that about? At 26 weeks, my pregnancy is going well. So far, no problems.... Read more

It's a boy! My intuition told me that it was a girl...until 2 days before the 20 week ultrasound and then I thought it was a boy. My husband's family is full of boys, so looks like we fit the mold. Little girl stuff is really cute and frilly, ... Read more

Had my 3rd doctor's appointment today and got to hear that little precious heartbeat! I have been much more calm since getting a couple of ultrasounds, but the 4 weeks in between appointments can be tough, especially when I'm barely showing and... Read more
To work or not to work?
Friday, September 23, 2011      1 comments

First, I acknowledge that I am pretty fortunate that I will probably/hopefully have a choice whether or not to work in 5 or so months when the baby is here. Some people who want to work can't find jobs and some people who want to stay at home ... Read more

Ok, starting to get depressed. For the last 3 months I have been working out consistently...at least meeting my spark activity minutes every week and burning the requisite calories...sometimes too many. I don't eat a lot, but I supposed I bett... Read more

Holy Crap, I weighed myself today and weighed the MOST I have weighed in my life. I feel very disappointed, but I think I managed to deal with it somewhat productively. I'm making a Sparkpeople recipe for dinner. I took the dogs on a pretty l... Read more

I am very happy today to call Barack Obama our president. Not just because I believe in him and some of his ideals, but because it feels like this country believes that a positive change is here. Something new is starting...I do hope that afte... Read more

I recently quit my job and moved. For me, its a whole new life, and I decided as part of my new start, I should give this blogging thing a chance. Not that I expect others to read it, but maybe it will be a good chance to be accountable to mys... Read more
