Back to the Beginning
Wow. Where has the time gone? In doing some quick math, it looks like it’s been about 9 months since I last shared a post with you.
Enough time to focus on the top priority in my life – my family and meeting our two little dudes on June 1st. Gavin (top of pic) and Quinn.
Now I know I’m their Momma and am supposed to think this, but aren’t they adorable??
Because I was working on getting these guys here safely, I decided to take a break from blogging but was always planning to come back to it when ready. We also decided to keep the details of this pregnancy a bit more private in light of our past experience.
Some of you know that 2011 was a pretty tough year for us. It started with the promise of growing our family to include two little boys in our lives. And unfortunately ended with us having to say goodbye to our sons, Micah and Julian, in May of last year.
I’ve been able to take comfort in the fact that I believe they’re watching over us and their little brothers Gavin & Quinn. Of course, we love and miss them dearly but know they’re never too far away from us and our thoughts. It’s still our goal to lead good lives in their name and honor. I don’t think they would want it any other way.
One of the things this means is that I’ll be getting back to living and promoting a healthy lifestyle and using this site to share and track my progress again. Not only do I need to lose weight from this pregnancy but I went into it carrying some extra pounds from 1st pregnancy in 2011. All of it needs to come off.
Though Gavin and Quinn will make the occasional cameo appearance, my posts won’t be about pregnancy or the joys of motherhood (of which there will be plenty). I want to let you know that in advance.
Instead, it’ll be about my journey to get back to a healthy, pre-pregnancy weight. The road no doubt will be filled with ups and downs and twists and turns. But of this I’m sure, I can and will do this. It’s only a matter of time.
I hope you’ll stick with me as I make progress and share your thoughts along the way. I’ve missed you and look forward to our chats. Ciao
