It's Been a While...

Sunday, January 01, 2017

As usual it seems that I've been away too long. Since my last blog entry the embryo adoption fell through and I went back to my original plan; adoption. I also have gone back to teaching as it provides the best future for myself and my future daughter. The adoption costs are high but it is much more manageable on a teaching salary.

In terms of health/weight I was surprised that I lost 15 lbs in 2016! That's a lot more than I thought lol. 2017 will be even better since I'm no longer living with my family and I have set some challenges for myself. I want to workout at least 10 minutes every day. Some days might be harder than others (like tomorrow since I'm driving 9+ hours) but I will find a way to get it in. I want to lose enough weight that it's not going to be an issue for the adoption and so that my daughter will have me around for a very long time.

Crazy how long I've been on this site but I definitely have learned so much. I'm not the same person I was over ten years ago when I first joined. I know my challenges but I also know how much I can accomplish when I work hard.

Happy new year!
