What I'm Loving Wednesday:

I'm lovin..
Blogging! I know I haven't really kept up, but I promise I'm coming back full swing. I'm starting to feel like myself again :)

This picture of my niece on her first day of Kindergarten!!
My new phone! I'm lovin all the apps and how easy it was to learn (I was worried)..oh, and it's eco friendly. Go Green!

I've been using the app to track my calories/look up food/restaurants and it's been great! I haven't lost any weight (go figure) but it really does help me keep in check with how I'm doing calorie wise.

Stir Fry! I never really cared for it before, but I've really started to like it..especially how my husband makes it! Yum!

Demi Lovato- Skyscraper. I love the emotion in her voice in this song.
My awesome husband whom I love dearly!
What are you lovin??
**I will be back tomorrow to elaborate on my appointment with the Reproductive Endocrinologist**

Facing the reality..

I forgot to mention that I started seeing a counselor to help me with my grief and depression after my 3rd miscarriage. I didn't really want to talk about it because of the embarrassment I was feeling. It has been 2 months (in 2 days) from my miscarriage and I really thought I would be able to pick myself up off the ground by least more than I have. But I am still crying..daily..mad at everything..everyone..negative attitude. I am still living in a timeline of what would have been. It is literally the worst feeling ever when you just feel darkness all around you and you are looking for any kind of silver lining and you just can't. This is what I'm working through.

I do have good news. On Monday the long wait to see the Maternal Fetal Specialist will be here. I don't know what he'll say, do, whatever, but I'm anxious to maybe have some answers, hope, positivity, and so on. We will just have to see.

Not looking for pity, just blogging my feelings. It really does help to acknowledge what I'm going through instead of being in denial and just hoping I start to feel better soon. That's not fair to my husband or myself. I can't wait to pull through this though.

Who know all it would take was a little sweat to bring me out of my funk?? Marlene and I are back at for the Race for the Cure 5K..just like we did last year, and it felt great! I mean, it was freaking hot, but I'd say we did pretty well for the 1st night of training. We started with week3 of Couch to 5K because we're just awesome like that..annnd we only have 8 weeks to train. Eeek! I will be back at it tomorrow :)

I also tracked my calories all day on MyFitnessPal. I ended up at roughly 1255 calories and burned about 200 on my 30 minute run at the gym. Not too shabby!

Question: What motivates you to stay on your weight loss journey??

And since posts without photos are pretty boring:
Happy 5th Birthday to my sweet niece, Ariauna! I love you!
