Happy New Year!!! 2017 is behind us, and for me, 2017 was one of the weirdest and interesting years. I got diagnosed with PCOS a week into January. In May and June, my mother has some life-threatening health issues (thankfully, she is doing better.) I had another chemical pregnancy in August. My 1st IUI failed. Yeesh.
However, there were good things. I lost 30 pounds after getting help with my diagnosis. My younger sister announced she was pregnant. My baby sister graduated from college and started her first “adult” job. My parents moved back to the little East Tennessee town I spent my childhood in. Steve and I started going to our fertility specialist. (WE LOVE YOU, GEORGIA REPRODUCTIVE SPECIALISTS!!)
2017 was a mixed bag, and there are definitely moments I would do over. That being said, I am proud of the progress I made this year. However, I still have a lot of things I want to accomplish in 2018.
What is that you hear? You guessed it, faithful readers! Time to list our resolutions for the new year. Well, I am superstitious so I am calling them my goals. (Not much better.)
- I have to get healthier. I know. I know! It’s extremely cliche, but it is required. I have a condition that needs me to get healthier. Also, if I get healthier, then Steve gets healthier.
- Write on the blog every week. This blog has been a life saver to me, and hopefully, it has helped others.
- Keep sane! I feel crazy a lot of the time. This happens for a lot of reasons, but if I keep having bad moments, I need to find ways to keep sane. It could be yoga. It could be therapy. It could be a lot of things. No shame in finding non-destructive ways to keep sane.
On January 1, 2019, I hope that I will able to report a good year-end round up on the blog. (Honestly, I hope that I will show off my child in one year.) I hope that every single one of you have a wonderful 2018. Work towards those goals. For all of you in the same boat as me, keep drinking the water. I’ll be chugging along with you!

I wish you the very best in the coming year. This is something I struggled with 35 years ago. I became a fanatic about nutrition. My baby girl is now 32. Science is much more advanced now, so karma is in your favor. And yes, it is good to have something to keep you sane. Writing and running are mine.

Thank you for your kind words. It’s extremely stressful, but I am trying to keep sane and hopeful.
