A book that has inspired me…

IMG_5879

A while back I was kinda obsessed with Khloe Kardashian and got her book “Strong looks better naked,” and loved it. It inspired and motivated me to work out, work on my health, my body and to just put myself first. I remember I was on my fitness and healthy lifestyle journey for a good few months after reading that book and then I fell off the wagon. Since then I haven’t really picked up the book again, or maybe I did once after that but only read a few chapters only. I think I will pick it up again and reread it to see if it will again give me that motivation that inspiration to get myself back on track since I have been so off since this whole coronavirus started.

What is one book that has inspired you???

Current book I’m reading.

If you know me personally, then you know I’m a sucker for romance books, but for some reason I decided that I want to read Wild by Cheryl Strayed. I first heard about it from one of my favorite shows Gilmore Girls, on the Year in the life. I got curious about it and decided to get it and read it knowing I probably won’t be into it and will lose interest early on. Shockingly, I actually really liked it, I give her so much prop for doing what she did. I don’t think, no wait I know for sure that I can never in life hike for 3 months straight all alone and with no experience what so ever to find myself. I have thought about from time to time when I’m having a hard time figuring life out, how I would love to escape myself for a week or so to think about life and figure out what I want to do, what I want to achieve, but I always pictured myself just going out of the city, or state, and going to a hotel or resort of some sort, never ever have I imagined myself hiking all alone on the pacific crest trail. I am almost done with the book, and I want to watch the movie version too. Have you read the book? What are your thoughts?

Difficult time in my life…

IMG_5766

A difficult time in my life would now and for the past year to year in a half. Last January I decided to get off my birth control to try again to see if maybe this time around I can get pregnant. I had tried for over a year a few years ago and decided to take a break and get back on my birth control pills to try and regulate my period since I hadn’t had it in over a year. Since last January I have been successful at getting a period every other month or so but still haven’t gotten pregnant. It’s so heartbreaking when all I want is a baby. I finally went and got checked and found out I do in fact have PCOS. I know if I lose weight it might be easier for me to get pregnant (MAYBE) and I get that motivation to lose weight but then again stop after a while…I suck at sticking to something…its so bad! Right now I know everyone is having such a hard time with everything going on regarding COVID-19 and I feel like my depression and my anxiety has gotten so extremely bad during this time and because I keep gaining more weight because I’m such a stress eater it just makes it worse. I have been thinking about maybe seeing a therapist like doing online therapy to help me cope with everything and when life gets back to somewhat “normal” finish going back to the drs for more testing to figure out if there’s something else that is causing me not to get pregnant. 

Infertility sucks, so does depression!

2018-12-14 22.27.37.jpg

We all dream about maybe one day winning the lottery don’t we? I know I cannot be the only one… I always try to picture what my life would be like if I actually won the lottery and what I would do with all that money. Well here is what I would do.

  1. I would quit my job.
  2. I would pay off my mom’s house and all her debt.
  3. I would give my mom very good amount of money so that way she doesn’t have to work or worry/stress about money ever again.
  4. I would pay off my mother’s in laws house, debt and give her a good amount of money as well.
  5. I would purchase mine and my husband dream house.
  6. I would pay off all of our debts that we have.
  7. I would take a month long vacation.
  8. I would donate to a few charities of mine and my husbands choice.
  9. I would adopt a few babies.
  10. I would use that money to open a few business to offer jobs to those who didn’t have employment.

What would you do???

Blogmas Day 15: How we met…

img_1091

Long story short, we met through a friend; his best friend at that time was dating an old high school friend of mine who I no longer was speaking with. But randomly January of 2011 I decided to forgive her and be friends with her and sure enough I met Raul less than a month later thanks to them. I no longer am friends with them but I am forever grateful that they introduced us!  But if you really want to know the drama of it all, we actually recorded a podcast episode on our love story and everything about it in our podcast and you can listen to it here.

Blogmas Day 14: Next vacation…

2018-12-14 22.11.57

Costa Rica was the one place that my husband really wanted to visit and we finally did and we both fell in love with it. Now it is my turn to pick our next big vacation and I think I want to go on a cruise. I love the ocean and I don’t think I get sea sick. I would love to be out in the middle of nowhere (which sounds kinda scary) but just disconnected with the real world, off technology for a while and just seeing new places. I would love to do maybe a mediterranean cruise…have you ever been on a cruise???

Blogmas Day 12: Pet Peeves

2018-12-14 21.54.19

I use to think I didn’t have any pet peeves…oh boy was I wrong! Here are some of my pet peeves:

  • When people only reach out to you when they need something or want to vent!
  • People who change because they are now in a relationship.
  • People who are late.
  • People who invite others to gatherings or dinner that I planned without checking first.
  • People who chew with their mouths open and super loud.
  • People who think they are better than everyone else.
  • People who judge everyone behind their backs.
  • People who make unnecessary comments.
  • People who take forever to reply back to you but you know their on their phone a lot.

Those are just a few haha.

What are some of your pet peeves???

Blogmas Day 10: Proudest moment.

2018-12-14 21.25.46

After high school, I kinda knew I didn’t want to go to a university because I figured I want to open my own in home daycare one day and I don’t really need a degree for that. However, my mom pushed me to go to a university to study something….anything to just get a degree because you just never know! I struggled the first two years about what I wanted my major to be on. I went from child development to psychology to sociology then back to child development then psychology again, I was so confused and just didn’t know what to do anymore until finally I decided that I’m just going to make my major what I know best…Child Development! So in May of 2011 I got my Bachelors Degree in Child and Adolescent Development. That would have to be my proudest moment honestly because it just wasn’t easy. Some of the classes were so difficult and on top of being a full time student, I was also working full time and babysitting on the weekends. I hardly ever had a moment or day off to myself for a long long long time and when I finally graduated I felt so free and relieved that I had accomplished something major!
