Depression, Pregnancy and Meds

This past weekend my good friend totally surprised me with the most beautiful baby shower! It’s my first shower, I didn’t have one with my first pregnancy because I was too ill (in my opinion) and really didn’t want to be seen by anyone and I definitely didn’t want to be the center of attention. Self-conscious and low self-esteem are under statements. But I really enjoyed myself and am so thankful to her!

Fighting Depression with Fitness

I’ve been a long time “fitness chaser” or someone who would do anything to be skinny. It started back in middle school… The unhealthy ways trying to starve myself skinny, it continued into high school. I tried any crash diet I saw in a magazine,  bought all the infomercial gadgets I could afford on my little YMCA salary. Always striving. Always failing. Never happy and never reaching my goal.

Pregnant… Again!

My goodness, it has been so long since I’ve posted here. I’m preparing for my afternoon nap, wrapped in a towel straight from the shower with a mug of Chamomile tea that was gifted to me in a care package from my amazing friends… and a shocking thought came to me! I should post to my blog!

On The Other Side of 30!

Earlier this month, on August 11 to be exact. I turned THIRTY! #LeosRule!

This is the first birthday that has affected me in a positive profound way. The morning of my birthday I walked out on to the porch with my coffee, placed it on the rail… lifted my hands high and screamed to the world (in my head), “I AM 30!! I’m 30 …. I’m 30!” With a smile plastered across my face of pure glee!
