From What? Life
I've been running away from this blog for one, so here is an update....
- We did get moved in with no problems at that end of July. It has been an adjustment. For one, I'm not used to living on a 5 lane highway, that has tons of traffic all hours of the night. For two, it's a big adjustment living in a parsonage. Though, I will say that it is nice not having to get up at 7 on Sundays to get ready for church. I just walk out the front door, down the sidewalk, and right to the front door of the church. Aaron is loving having all the restaurants and such a variety close by. Which is part of the reason that I'm not losing like I should.
- I went back to the dr last week. I am still on the birth control & on the metformin. I was down 8 pounds since my last visit in July. I go back to the regular doctor next month for labs & to see what my blood levels look like. If everything has come down & I can lose between 8-12 more pounds before I go back in November, then we can start some fertility testing!!
- My Christian walk has not been what it should be. I know that & have really been convicted of that. Aaron's sermon last night really hit me hard. During the invitation, I went to alter & asked God to forgive me & to help me draw closer to Him & seek Him first in all things. I have started going to a ladies community Bible study. So far, I am really enjoying it, eating up, & looking forward to it. Some of my blog posts in the future may be more about devotions & my Christian journey than they are about fertility & that's ok because that means the Lord is answering my prayers!!
- I have also been running away from my low-carb diet. I know it. That is something that I am always going to struggle with. I had Aaron fix me an egg & cheese on english muffin this morning. I ate that while I was driving. I am going to have to start bringing me a morning snack. I am starving & still have an hour or so before I get lunch.
I have started running. Well, it's running with a lot of walking mixed in! I had my first 5k on September 13th. The Electric Run in Raleigh. It was rough because I am used to flat lands & pavement only. This was at the fairgrounds. Lots of hills & also on rocks. I finished in 56 minutes. I have my next 5k in La Grange on October 12th. As far as I can tell, this is going to be a road run. My goal is to finish in less than 50 minutes. I think I can shave 6 minutes off the last time. The only thing that is really going to be a downfall for me is that ever since the Raleigh run, I haven't been able to go a mile before my calves start cramping up & hurting really bad. I have definitely got to start adding some cross training in the mix. Honestly don't know how to get that done in my already packed day. I will have to figure something out, that's the only my running is going to improve!
Lace up your shoes & let's go run down the road together!! Lots of love!!
