Yeah, I'm crazy, so?

So I panicked for no reason really about being able to have children yesterday. I don't know why. I always thought that if I had kids, I did. If I didn't, I didn't. I'd still enjoy life no matter what.

But everyone around me is getting pregnant and I'm a woman and I have that biological clock and all - so I have a mini panic attack (which was fun for Chris when he came home and I almost demanded we immediately make a baby ^.^ hahaha).

Came to my senses, going to wait another year, try to get established in a job, have some good income and good savings and get a little more settled here in the house (I'd like to get new windows and do a little more painting before we get pregnant!).


Other life news: having a hard time staying paleo. I'd say I'm more at around 75-80% paleo during the day/week at this point. Going to try and detox a little (got a little sugar addicted and I just want MORE MORE MORE all the time).

We have a social night for a hiking group we are in tonight - it's at a local bar, but I think I am going to order seltzers and abstain from alcohol. I need to give my body a longer break from those sugars/grains.

Weighed in at 121.2 today and still loving my body!

Even though I have strayed a little from strict paleo (90ish%), I am staying REALLY active because this weather is AMAZING. Ah.Maz.Ing. Seriously. It's been 50ish at night, 70ish during the day, the wind is cool, the sun is warm, the leaves are turning. I have to be outside all the time. Walks with the dog, walks with Chris, walking to a friend's house, walking to the coffee shop, etc. Lots of pleasant yoga times, as well.

Here is a picture of our newly painted porch (it used to be a peeling, dingy maroon color - LOVING this bright, full-of-life green!). I also painted our flower boxes BRIGHT yellow :D :D :D They are still drying, but will be mounted back onto the porch today.

Peace and Love, my friends.


  1. I think you are doing fantastic. You are maintaining and working through things.

    Also, PS, I'm going through the SAME baby talk with myself. I used to think the clock was a myth, but I know now, it is not. You've got lots of time. I'm with you, need to prepare myself, though everyone tells me, you cannot prepare!?

  2. The porch looks so inviting, love it! You're maintaining your weight well. The walks sound lovely, enjoy yourself.

  3. LOLz. You understand a baby takes 10 months, right? You crack me up!

  4. Love the porch. Have you thought about doing a Whole30 or a 21 day sugar detox?? Might help with the brain re-set. It takes ma a looooong time for my brain to recover when I go off course.

    Good luck with the family planning. :)
