New Blog


I got sick of blogging about myself. Kinda boring, right? Just me and my hubby, and our 2 cats of course :) Ryan works a lot, I work part time and am a part to full time housewife, and occasionally we get out on the weekends and do something fun and try to explore the Bay Area. Once I started working and had more important things going on, I didn't feel like making time to sit in front of the computer and chat on and on about myself, how narcissistic!! And really, who cares??

Well, I like to write (maybe I'll even write a book one day :) I think I'm semi-okay at it, and that's enough for me! Some of you may know, most of you may not know, that Ryan and I have struggled to have kids for 7.5 years. We've been married for a little over 8 years, and I've wanted to be a mom since as long as I can remember. That's probably why I'm a teacher, and as much as I love my little 5 year old students, they are not mine, and I am not their mother.

Since we've moved back to the Bay Area, I've gotten really interested in holistic living, and learning how I can heal my body naturally. We tried fertility treatments while we lived in Southern California, but with no success. It was awful, I hated it and I will never go to Western medicine again to try to achieve pregnancy. Along my holistic path, I've learned so, so, so, so, so much and I wouldn't give it up for the world. I'm learning what I can do now to help my body heal, be balanced, and be healthy, and in turn once I am pregnant, I will be able to give my child such a beautiful gift of a life starting in great health! It's important to me, it's become my main goal in life, and I'm so passionate about it that I wanted to share what I have been learning. I'm getting closer, and I truly believe that once I am able to stop taking all my prescription medication, there will be a baby on the way :)

So now I'm blogging again, but not entirely about myself. I'm blogging about what I've been learning, so that hopefully I can help and inspire someone else who might be in the same situation as me.

Here is my new blog; I call it "Conceivable", because it is conceivable to me that I can make healthy diet and lifestyle changes, heal my body with food, herbs and essential oils, and become pregnant one day soon!

Check it out, and let me know what you think!!

It's raining, it's pouring

This is what it looks like outside today . . .

So I'll be doing this for my workout today :( I really love running outside. At least I have the option to do it most of the time. A day here or there on the treadmill isn't too bad I guess. Working on Week 3 of 8 Weeks to a 10K!!

Off I go!

It has definitely been a while!

So I may start blogging again, but I'm not entirely sure. There's not much to blog about with just Ryan and I. He works a lot, weekends and all, and even though I only work part time, we live with family so I kind of take care of things like cooking and cleaning all the time. Unfortunately, we don't do many of the exciting things that we were looking forward to doing when we found out we were moving back to the Bay Area. It's hard to find balance when you're not always on your own time.

However, I have been putting a lot of time and effort in to improving my health, and hopefully the health of my husband (when he gives in to my demands!) and that of the family I am living with as well. I won't get in to the main reason for why I am trying to drastically improve my health, but if you know me well enough, you know why. When things start to get exciting and start happening, maybe then I'll reveal my reasons.

Okay, so what have I been doing? Nothing crazy, but I got a Blendtec and I make green smoothies every morning, and have been for the last 4 months or so. Yes, every morning, and I make 5 of them! I have also been eating a lot more "nutritarian" like, which means eating lots of nutrient dense foods. So, no processed food, tons of veggies and fruit, and I'm also trying to eat gluten, dairy, and soy free. Dairy is easy, gluten is sneaky and is in everything! I also get a foot zone a few times a month. I believe the correct term is Foot Zone Balancing. Anyway, it's similar to reflexology and what it is helping me to do is realign my body and all it's inner workings back to it's perfect state, the way it's supposed to be before life and environmental factors get in there and mess it up. Of course, there really is no "perfect" state, but I can try to get close!

Well, we'll see if I do more blogging or not. There are so many aspects of it that I know nothing about, all the technical buttons, lists, blogrolls, fancy little things on the side, etc. And it's also very time consuming, which I don't like because time is one of the most valuable commodities we have, and the way we use it is a deep reflection of who we are. I would rather use my time to better myself and my family. But maybe by cataloging what I'm actually doing to better myself is a good thing too :)
