I’m still here…

I’m still here ya’ll, I promise! So much is going on that I can’t seem to keep it all straight and get into a solid routine, but it’s getting better. Some highlights on my life since my last blog.

  1. My little boy is 6m old! OMG, right? He is the most amazing little human being I could have ever wished for, and believe me, I wished HARD for him. It’s been quite a ride and lots of learning, learning about him, about having a baby, and about what I’m capable of handling.
  2. My passion for being healthy. Now I don’t eat the best, not all the time, but I don’t eat a ton of food to begin with. I’m a very picky eater so really far from being a foodie. But just because I’m not overweight (still have some baby weight to get rid of) it doesn’t mean I couldn’t be healthier. So I’ve joined a company called Plexus. It has an amazing opportunity to better my finances and give me time freedom to enjoy my son.
  3. Getting my house organized. Boy this one is a challenge. Trying to find time between a baby and Plexus can be rough but I’m slowing getting through it. My craft room is the worse and I’ll tackle that last. Lots of donating things or throwing things out lately. Plus the baby things take up a lot of space so I’m minimizing my material items.
  4. On the healthy path, I’ll be growing my own vegetables on my deck this year. Yippie! Well we’ll see how that goes. I’m not good with keeping plants alive on my deck because of how hot it gets. But I will give it a try.
  5. My deck project this summer is about to begin. I got three quotes from contractors and they all want roughly around 6-7k. Most of that is the labor. So I did research (because that’s what I do) and watched some videos on how to remove the floor boards myself. My deck’s structure is still good, but the boards are terrible, and with a soon to be crawling/walking baby, I need to make that safe. So my plan is to do it myself. Remove the old boards and put down new ones! I’ll post about it once it’s done.
  6. Writing a book! So many people hear my motherhood journey story and say I should write a book. So I’m going to do just that. If I can inspire and help others, then that’s what I want to do. I’m an open book and don’t mind sharing it with everyone.
  7. Back to reading. I’m reading The Walking Dead comics to catch up and pass what the show is doing. And I’ve bought some books on marketing business on social media and baby led weaning, so I have them on my list as well.
  8. Establishing an exercise routine. I’ve tried the gym and I’ve tried classes, but now with my son, I need something a bit more convenient and close to home. So I’m doing kettlebell routines, Zumba, and other weight training. I want a better body than I had before I got pregnant. Plus, soon I’ll need the body and energy to keep up with this little boy.

My mission to get healthy

I am one determine lady! For those who follow me here, you know about my roller coaster ride to get pregnant as a single woman. I spent a year doing IUIs, another year doing IVF and did my last IVF at the beginning of 2015. I was so happy! Happy beyond belief. It finally happened for me and I worked hard for it. I researched different supplements to take and I took them all. I started acupuncture on my last attempt, changed my diet a bit and upped my supplement intake.

My pregnancy was a bit rough but I still cherished it all. I had morning sickness for 3-4 months. A month or so of feeling good, followed by the last 2-3 months of horrible hip pain. It got to the point where it hurt to sit at work, sit anywhere really, and even when I was laying down. But I knew it was temporary.

I felt so blessed and scared. I realized I’m all this little boy will have. I need to make sure I will be around for as long as possible. My mom told me she was introduced to Plexus by my friend and her mom. She gave me some of the Plexus Slim “pink drink” to try and even though my pregnancy made me hate the taste, I gave it a shot. Much to my surprise, it gave me enough energy to help my pregnant self get through the day. And trust me, I needed all the help I could get. Don’t get me wrong, I was still tired but the drink gave me a natural energy that helped in so many ways. At night I had restless legs and realized while on Plexus, I didn’t have that anymore! Super wow, right?!

So I’m almost at my due date and decided to jump all in and join Plexus. The amazing results I was having, I wanted to share with others and help others get healthy. Plexus products are all natural, which I absolutely love! I’m tired of reading how eggs are bad for you, milk is now bad for you, red dye #6 is bad for you, blah blah. I wanted something not processed and all natural.

Anyway, joining Plexus was one of the best decisions I ever made. I love helping people and the results I have seen from my friends and family have shown how well these products work. Plexus works on getting you healthy from the inside, and when that happens, it has the potential to fix so many other things.
