Family problems...or problems making a family

Chris and I have been talking about kids and starting a family for the last 3 years, more seriously over the last year. I took myself off birth control almost a year ago and nothing has come from it. I was diagnosed with PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) about 3 years ago. PCOS effects insulin and how insulin works, it can lead to diabetes, infertility as well as various kinds of cancer prone to females.
I had my annual pap the other day and my doctor was pissed because I took myself off my meds for PCOS and haven't been eating the way I need to be eating. It is difficult with a husband who is addicted to fast food and carbs and sugar.
So I need to put off the baby making until I lose some weight and eat better and exercise. It will help with ovulation, and prevent gestational diabetes as well as lower my chances for miscarriages.
So I am back on meds and my husband and I are working towards trying to find healthy low-carb high-protein meal options. If anyone out there has any good food options for us or good recipes please let us know.
So not only will this blog be about storm chasing and marriage, it will also be about my weight loss and how it is progressing.
I will go out there and say I will need to lose about 30+ lbs. So my initial goal is to lose 30 lbs.
I will do this by taking my meds, eating right and finding a regular exercise regime.
Day One starts today...and I will track my weight loss here. So far 0 lbs lost.

Days like this...

Have you ever had one of the days from work where you just wanted to take a 9 iron to something or someone just because of something small and stupid? After working a 9 hour day at work, all I wish I could do is go buy the new book from the Sookie Stackhouse series and just crash on the couch for a couple days and just vegetate and read.

So if my husband reads this after I had to drain what's left of our bank account to bring him dinner because of the bad weather that was supposed to start 90 minutes ago, I would love the book or a back rub. Your choice.

When will this stupid economy turn around and help us more than harm us?

Soon I will get lost in LOST and then head home from the TV station and go to bed.

Time Changes Everything

So I have finally reached the point where I honestly need to commit to putting my thoughts and my feelings out for the world to absorb. Not for the benefit of the world, but for my own well being.
The last ten years of my life has been an emotional roller coaster. Not that no one else's life isn't, but this is my blog. If you had a roller coaster the last ten years, by all means put it in your blog.
Who would have thought I would have met the love of my life in Spanish class? I did, almost five years ago. We met in college, both taking Spanish class as a resort to help our daily lives living in Greeley, CO. Ironically, we didn't talk much in class, and he was with someone else at the time. What was even more strange was that we both auditioned for American Idol that year in Denver, back in September 2005. It was technology (myspace) where he found me and remembered in brief attempts of me trying to pick him up that I love karaoke. He emailed me to go out to karaoke one night, and so a flame was ignited.
Chris and I married September 12th, 2008. We spent a little over $10k for 80 people to eat, drink and be merry, and unfortunately someone drank a little too much. Someone I never expected to do what they did...and almost ruined the whole wedding. It was like having a romantic comedy about a wedding playing in my head. This person was in many pictures and a big part of my life up to that part, and still hasn't muscled up the courage to apologize. Yes I still have issues about it, especially when I have to see this family member many times throughout the year. Bad blood, lets move on!
Our marriage isn't a typical marriage. My husband is a TV Weatherman.
On TV.
I am super proud of him, and he knows the sacrifices we both have made to start and hopefully succeed in his career. It is funny how everything is based on what the weather does:
Big snow storm = brave the blizzard to bring dinner to the TV station so he can eat
Sunny beautiful day = boring...yes boring.
Dangerous thunderstorms and tornadoes = hurry up let's go see it!
God knows my life feels more complete with him in it. But I am not gonna definitely got more interesting.
So with new career for him, bills turning into a skyscraper, the government taking control of everything and trying to get a handle on finances...who wouldn't stress?
But this blog isn't just about the negatives of marriage and starting a family, it's about the good things...the love, the surprises and the comedy of being to fools in love.
