That said I have SO much to catch everyone up on. I haven't been good on social media at all, unless you count just sharing pictures of Greenleigh which I do all the time. So here is a list of 5 things that's going on with me lately
First off lets talk about my favorite subject, baby Greenleigh! She is doing very well! She's growing like a weed and is pretty much the only thing on my brain. Mom brain is a real thing and I have it bad. My motivation to come up with compelling content has slowly dwindled and I find myself just throwing up cute photos of Greenleigh because they are so dang cute! I am growing along with her, finding my way as a mom and loving it!
We are still trying to come to a conclusion and I am praying we do soon. I haven't ran in 2-3 months! That is a RIDICULOUSLY long time for me. My sanity rests on running, I don't post about my fitness and running that much on social media but it is something I do every day.
Now that I can't run I have been working hard on my bike trainer in my living room (BORING!) Swimming at the Y, and various Beachbody work out systems.
In December I completed 21 day fix and went right into the 30 day chisel. Today was week 3 day 2 and I am going strong, hopefully building strength so when I do go back to running I'm not dead slow! I value my speed and endurance.

I've been chosen to represent Michigan as the new Ms Michigan US Continental! That's been exciting and I love being able to make appearances spreading my message of infertility awareness. The national pageant I'll be competing in is this August!

I've had a lot of reflection time lately, really thinking about being a little different from your average woman and how it has effected me over the years. It's something I brushed off for a very long time as not bothering me. We flew through Greenleigh's birth with my amazing sister, and I just kept pushing thoughts away about how it feels to know I can't do this, I cant have a baby on my own.
I have much more to say on the topic of differences of sexual development, so many kids are born with a slight variation from the "gender norm" IE- being born without ovaries or uterus! I'll leave that for my next post though...
So that is me lately, I'm momming hard, I am trying to lift weights and cycle my butt off until I can run, and I am trying to TRULY accept myself for who I am, not just say that I do...
2017 is off to a great start, I look forward to seeing what else it has in store.
