starting off, i have to say that i am extremely fortunate to have been placed with a job with the perk of a free gym. i've started a daily exercise routine by walking and running intervals on the treadmill. i have not exercised regularly since i was in college, and i was SO sore the first day. but, i am going again tonight with a few friends, so wish me luck!
my whole life i was the chubby kid. i have always been great at maintaining my weight. however when i lose weight, i tend to yo-yo and end up back where i started. when i was in college, i lost a LOT of weight by diet and exercise. i should be well equipped with knowledge for this journey, because it was my major in college for three years! lol. sometimes i used EXTREME methods for diet and exercise, but nonetheless, i lost the weight. i am going to try to do that same type of diet and exercise regimen just not as extreme.
micahel and i announced that we needed prayer on sunday for this whole process. i think my friend, brittney, nearly peed her pants when she heard that we were ready to start preparing for a baby. she is more ready for it than we are! :) she just had her second child, sweet baby cohen, and we absolutely love big brother cooper! but, if you are reading this, please throw a quick prayer up for us. this is going to be a hard journey, but we are ready to take it.
