Short Blog and a REQUEST!

I need your help, SparkFriends!

I wrote a review for a shoe and if I get the most facebook likes on my review, I win a Nike GPS watch. I had the lead for a while, but my nearest competitor is gaining on me fast.

Please take a moment to go and like my review! GO! then come back and read more.

My update is not a good one, I'm afraid. I went off birth control (EXCITING!!!) but it's been rough. My weight has gone up, I've had zits, bloating for days, it's awful. And not pregnant yet. BOO! All kinds of awful side effects and no reward. I can't wait for my hormones to regulate and for things to get back to normal.

The good news? I have a couple races on the calendar, and I did my first one of the year, which was a little odd - it was a SNOWSHOE race! :) Very fun.

So right now I'm training for a half marathon in April, and I will be part of a Marathon Relay team in May. I am not registering for anything too far out since I hope to become pregnant in the near future and not sure how that will affect my running, although I HOPE to run throughout.

I also have my gym membership back! YAY! I've only tried to go once so far, but the class was cancelled because the teacher was sick so I haven't REALLY gone to the gym yet. :P

Here's a picture of my eyelashicles from my snowshoe race:

    Exciting news!! YAY! I went off BC a few years ago (just cuz I was too old to be on it anymore) and I didn't have toooo bad side effects. My skin is actually better now than when I was on it. Weird! Anyway, wishing you luck in that dep't!

A snowshoe race sounds so freaking fun!!! NEAT!

    Going off BC sucks! I feel your pain! Hormones are responsible for so much! Hopefully yours balance out soon!

Good luck with the baby making :)
