About

Hello, and welcome to my blog about getting fit pregnant. Yes, originally, this was a blog about getting fit, but now it has morphed into my journal about infertility. I’m a workaholic, thirty-something, fun-loving, lady living in the Midwest. I’m married (sorry, fellas) with pets (an adorable mutt and a bitchy cat). I have a lot of hobbies (beach glass hunting, photography, painting, learning to play the ukulele I bought on impulse, hunting for vintage Pyrex, buying more shoes, learning about essential oils, and going to concerts). My husband and I have been trying to conceive (TTC) for about two and a half years.

I ended up back in the Mitten when my Dad was in the hospital in 2011. I’ve been teleworking from the Mitten ever since. Before returning to Michigan, I spent roughly a decade in Washington, D.C. living the fast-paced, yuppie life. I spent most of my “free” time sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic. I’ve lived in a lot of places (MI, GA, OH, PA, TN, TX, VA, DC) … and I get the itch to move roughly every 2-3 years thanks to my childhood of moving from state-to-state. I travel frequently. I like nature. I appreciate it a lot more now than I did in my 20’s, that’s for sure. It helps that Michigan is a beautiful place.

This blog is my attempt at accountability, humor, measuring fitness success, and exorcising my demons. Oh, and since I gave up dairy, maybe forgetting that delicious ice cream and cheese exists. My goal is to get pregnant and be a mom, but if that doesn’t happen, I want to be an overall healthier person – physically, mentally, and spiritually. If you’re on the same kind of journey and struggling, too, I would love to follow your blog and cheer you on. In a world that doesn’t understand infertility and where people tell you to “relax and the babies will come,” I’ve found talking to others going through the same thing really does help. It isn’t as simple as just relaxing … and nobody should suffer in silence as they struggle through infertility. Support is important.

Here I go! Thanks for reading!
