Today is the day. Am I attempting the impossible? Maybe. But, I am sure as hectic going to try.
Please check out my new blog to find what it's all about...
And it would mean the world to me if you could possibly donate whatever you can, but if you cannot donate, please tell everyone you know about my mission! Thanks!
PS - And if anyone knows about blog layouts or designs, I need some help. My blog looks pitiful, but I have never started a blog before. So, any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe. But, I am sure as heck going to try.
Starting August 13, 2013, I will begin a journey of a lifetime. Not just to get in shape, improve health, or increase my happiness, although if I complete this journey, those things will also be accomplished.
Starting on August 13, 2013, I will take my first steps with the goal of walking/running 1300+ miles. Not for me, but for Ronan and all the other children fighting cancer.
I also plan on setting up a blog to document my journey. I am hoping to raise as much money as I can for the Ronan Thompson Foundation. And I hope my personal journey reaches as many people as possible and people are inspired to donate or help in any way that they can.
Will this be easy? Heck no (especially since I live a very sedentary life). But, I love this little boy, who I never met, and his mama, and I want to help in any way that I can.
If you are interested in learning about Ronan's story, please read his mother's blog @

I want another child so much, and I actually had my IUD removed yesterday (it had to come out - it was 5 years old, and yes my husband knows). But, I got some BC because I know my husband is not quite ready for another child. He actually doesn't really want another one, but he's thinking about it.
But, I am afraid that if I get pregnant again, I could lose my job and insurance. And we just moved and my husband does not make enough for me to not work.
Is having another baby worth losing the comfort and security that I have right now? Or am I just being crazy? I work for a company with only 30 employees. They were really nice about my pregnancy 7 years ago, but I am scared that won't be as kind, especially since the company might be selling (or at least part of the company).
I don't know what to do...listen to my head or my heart?

Well, yesterday didn't go as planned.
I brought my lunch, but I didn't eat it. I have a weakness for Chinese food, and my co-workers ordered in Chinese. But, I did split an order with someone.
And I ended up drinking a Dr. Pepper in the afternoon. The day was dragging on and I needed a pick-me-up.
I could have done better yesterday, but I also could have done worse.
I did NOT stop and get a doughnut. I got oatmeal instead. And NO soda either. Drinking my H2O.
I also have my lunch from yesterday.
I plan on trying to get some exercise in on my 4-day weekend.
I hope everyone has a safe, fun, and healthy 4th of July!
PS - Oh, and I ordered a new scale and a HRM yesterday. So excited!

Let's start with the good news...
This morning -
1) I only bought 1 doughnut
2) I did NOT buy a pop and I am drinking water
3) I brought my lunch (healthier and saves $$)
Baby steps. One day at a time.
Now, for my heartbreaking news. My husband and I were supposed to start trying to have another baby in the next 3-6 months. And I thought everything was set up, and I would stop my birth control and we would see what happens.
But, then he tells me last night that he doesn't really want another baby. He didn't enjoy the first 2 years (of our son being an infant/toddler) and he thinks our family is complete as it is now.
We just moved to a house in the country about 2 weeks ago, and I dreamed of decorating the spare bedroom for our second child. I have always dreamed of having at least 2 kids.
My husband says if he another one now, we would be much older before this child was out of the house, and we can't save as much for retirement.
I feel like my hopes and dreams were shattered last night. I can't make him want another child, and I don't want him to resent me if we ended up having another child.
I don't know where to go from here, and how to fill this void in my heart. I know children are expensive and that they are a lot of work. But, I don't feel like our family is complete right now.
I am heartbroken due to the loss of the dream I've always had.
