Does your DH run? I find I do a better job if I run with DH. I find that my unmotivation is moreso boredom. Even though I have my music to listen to I get bored. After my DH starts his new job we'll be able to run more. We just can't be too far from the car or house since he has 20 minutes to get to the ER after he gets paged.
Also, I didn't complete the whole c25k program last year when I did my 5k. Had I completed it I probably would've been able to run the whole thing. I didn't plan far enough out to complete it.
Today's run with alternating 60 sec of running with 90 seconds of walking.
Not unless someone is chasing him and only then if negotiations have failed ;) Poor DH isn't the most physically active of guys. I am trying to get him to go walking with me at night. We both are poorly self-motivated and self-disciplined which doesn't help much any lifestyle changes. We'll see what ends up happening.

Just talked to my brother at lunch. I think that he and I are going to try to do a 5K this summer somewhere. I do much better with an accountability partner so this will be good. We'll see...

I have tried to get into running in the past but I always end up with some serious aches and pains (i.e. shin splints). I don't think I train incredibly aggressively. Honestly, I joke that my people survived by hiding or fighting - I do put on muscle easily and I come from a Scottish background. However, my husband runs long distance (i.e. marathons) and I would like to be able to do some of the shorter races with him.
I love zumba. If I had enough time, I would aim to be a zumba instructor. It is just so fun.
Also, we are going to buy bicycles for our move to Minnesota. We are going to be living near a cool bike trail.
We were supposed to have sailing lessons Sat/Sun (had been planning on doing this for the last several years), but I have a doctors appt and need to wait around the house on Saturday for more meds to come. There is a birthday party in the afternoon that we can attend, but our good friends just had a baby... and you know the drill. I think I can handle it. I honestly am in complete denial that this could possibly work... and I think I need to stay that way, just to protect myself from being horribly disappointed. I have been spending a lot of time on adoption websites lately.
You know, endometriosis is something that gets worse as you age, typically. If anything, you may want to share your experiences with your daughter later just so she knows things might be more difficult than for other people.
We'll see how I feel tomorrow after running. I made sure I stretched pretty well after I got done. Last year I had some issues with my feet/ankles. I hope it doesn't happen again. If it does, I'll give it some time and if it doesn't get better then I might need to get some new running shoes. They just might need some strengthening. I went out and bought $140 shoes last year and they started hurting really bad but after some rest they did get better.
DH and I ride bikes quite a bit at our lake house. There are a lot of bike trails. We talked of getting me a new bike to have up there.
Hope you have a good weekend and the bday party isn't too hard. Sorry you can't take your sailing lessons. Are you going to be near a lake in MN?
I believe my whole family is infertilie, except for my mom, otherwise my sisters and I wouldn't be here. I can't have kids and my older sister is having issues. Her DH had a vasectomy reversed but they are still having problems. The VR didn't work well and there may be some issues with her. She hasn't seen an RE yet as she's not ready to pursue anything further at this time. I have a couple grand of meds in the fridge waiting for her from a friend of mine if she gets to them before they expire. My younger sister isn't married so hasn't started TTC yet. Hopefully she won't have any problems.
My DH and I are trying to plan a trip for our 5 yr anniversary in August. Plus, I want to get away with just him and I. We were thinking Vegas because we have a Marriott vacation ownership there but they are a pain to work with. We can only check in Fri-Sun and the flight that we can take that works the best and is the cheapest is Thurs-Sun. So then we were talking about trading our week in for Marriott points and going to France. His uncle has a place there and we could use the points for airfare. We can't make any decisions until tomorrow when we can talk to someone at Marriott. Last year we went to a B&B for our anniversary and had a lot of fun so decided we'd go to different ones each year. But I think an "away" trip would be fun since it's our 5 yr (kind of a special one). If we went to France we'd probably wait until fall.
Ok...now I'm just rambling...
I'm sorry that you might have to miss your sailing lessons. Good luck with whatever you decide to do about the party. I'm sorry that you are in denial. It is a difficult balance between being optimistic and self-perservation. I hope that you are able to find some peace in the coming days.
Have fun planning Meg! We didn't go away for our 5th but we did redesign my engagement ring so no complaints here (it was also our 10th year of dating).
In all honesty, today has already been very rough. I feel like I was starting to feel a little better as each day passed but today has been SO hard. Thinking back to the joy and excitement of last week and wishing and hoping and praying and begging and pleading that it was all a bad dream. Like I'll just "wake up" and the doctor will call back and say "I'm sorry, we were wrong. Congrats!" But that's not the case. Argh!! This stinks :(. Sorry to vent. I'll probably put myself in "time-out" today because y'all certainly don't need my whining mucking up the place.
Jenni...sorry today is so hard. I know exactly how you feel because that's how I felt with my loss. I kept thinking "last week at this time...." It also felt like a really bad dream that I needed to wake up from. Don't feel like you have to put yourself in "time-out" today. We are here to support you! :bighug:
Popping out of time-out to say "Hi". Still a rough day but it's almost over. My co-worker/friend has been keeping me pretty distracted today so that has helped.We've got the BBQ festival tomorrow - DH is SO excited. I'm looking forward to the distraction and getting out of the house. Sunday we are visiting his gpa - got word this morning that they are moving him to a nursing home this afternoon. Have a good rest of the day and a great weekend if I don't talk to y'all again.
