To my baby,
Well, it's official. We are perfect candidates for IVF, but we will need TESE and ICSI. And the grand total is roughly $17,000.
There are options for financing, and getting "two-for-one," but there are also one or two grants out there to h... Read more

They didn't have an o... Read more
Who knows Advocare?
I'm one of several children, and we were all very close while growing up. As we've become adults, we've separated a little. Yesterday, I heard from my older sister for the first time in about a month. She's lost 15 pounds (Go Sis!), and 24 inche... Read more
Prepping for Vendors
I am beginning to look at places to have the wedding. And I realized I know nothing about what to ask. So I went around, looking at "Must Ask" questions. Many of these are good. Some have overlap. But I still ended up with several categories: Ge... Read more

Insanity Day 2/P90X Day 2
After further consideration I've decided to MOSTLY follow the P90X program, but instead of doing P90X cardio, I’m substituting Insanity workouts. I've gone to beachbody.com, the main website for both Insanity and P90X and found that many people ... Read more

I’m following the Insanity and P90X workouts in the order they are given, but alternating. Today was P90X Chest and Back with Ab Ripper X.

Weights and Measures
I'm combing two very difficult exercise programs that are designed for fast results. So I weighed myself yesterday. But then I remembered, muscle mass weighs more than fat mass. I might be trimmer, but weigh more. So here are my stats for "Befor... Read more
Insanity Day 1
After deciding that something new needs to be done to get of my 187 plateau. I'm trying a mix of Insanity and P90X. Today I took the Insanity fitness test. All I can say is that it is aptly named. I got a great workout with just the fitness test... Read more
Insanity, weddings, blood type and more
The weekend was fairly uneventful. Standard, staying in and doing homework, while trying to spend time with family we hardly get to see.
My weight fluctuates, I know this. But I really hate it when it fluctuates the wrong way, or doesn't m... Read more

We have decided to go with a medieval/renaissance theme for the wedding, which I think h... Read more
I have a date!
So we got married after 10 + years together. We ran up to the Justice of the Peace and made it legal. We said that we'd have a ceremony for the family. We went to the JP because I needed to get health insurance.
We narrowed it down to August ... Read more
