Stuff has been weirdly busy as of late, and yet I feel like nothing is happening. I haven't been blogging as much because I feel like I have nothing of real interest to talk about.
I am working out like a maniac and eating healthier than I ever have before. Thanks to all that I am down 12 pounds. I am very proud of my progress and am hoping I can keep it up. If I keep losing at this rate I may be able to start IVF by September. I am doing pretty well with the couch to 5k program. I have been doing it for three weeks, and yet I am still on the week 1 workout. Hey, before this the only thing I ran for was the last cupcake, so it is no surprise that my body wasn't ready to run for even 60 seconds at a time. I am hoping I will be able to do the whole week1 workout without stopping tomorrow for the first time. Then after another week of doing week 1 I will start week 2. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
I was in a little bit of a panic this week because we were having trouble getting someone to do our home study for the new puppy. That is what happens when you are adopting a puppy two states away. But I finally got a hold of the local Humane Society, and they graciously agreed to do our home study and pass on the results to the rescue we are getting Penny from. Thankfully her foster mommy is posting tons of pics on facebook for me to ohh and ahh over. And since I know everyone loves a cute puppy here is one of my favorite pics of little Penny. Seriously, isn't she just the cutest thing ever? It will be very interesting to see how our two dogs react to the new arrival.
Other than that everything is seriously boring right now. It feels so weird to not be doing fertility treatments. It was nice at first, but now I just feel like I am wasting time. I feel like I should be driving an hour to the RE's office twice a week and analyzing everything my body does. But instead I feel like I am just doing nothing. I have been trying to bring up the idea of adoption with my hubby occasionally. I would really love to adopt even if we do have bio kids, but he isn't completely sold on the idea. He is afraid adopted kids would resent him or that he wouldn't be able to love an adopted child as much. But through lots of discussions I think he is starting to warm to the idea. We are still a long way off from making that decision, but it is nice to know that he is keeping a semi-open mind.
