So it's been a while...

Hey guys! I've missed you all! I'm so sorry it's been forever since I last posted. My world has completely changed in just about every way since I last posted. I'll catch you up quickly and maybe I'll do longer posts later about the big life events.

First, I stopped running completely. My OB said I shouldn't be doing anything triggering attacks and EVERYTHING was triggering attacks. This was sooooo not fun for me. That's part of why I fell off the blogging wagon. It was just a bummer to write a running blog when I wasn't allowed to run. Boo!

Second, I got married!!! My husband is absolutely amazing and I couldn't be any happier than I am when I'm with him. Our wedding was August 31st on a rooftop in downtown OKC right around sunset. It was absolutely perfect and I wish I could relive that day over and over again. I am so fortunate to have found him. Here's a few of my favorite pics!




Also in case you didn't notice above, I got freaking gigantic during my pregnancy! haha. I don't like to look at the scale ever, but I gained 60 pounds!! Some of it was water weight (I had massive swelling problems) but some of it was definitely not. Boo! PS: I was 30 weeks at my wedding above and 39 and 2 days when our baby was born.

And finally I had a baby!! Audrey Rei (our beautiful little girl born on November 4th) is finally here! I know everyone thinks their baby is adorable but I'm obsessed with mine, so I apologize in advance for the amount of Audrey pics you will be seeing on the blog. She's 15 days old today and I'm completely attached to her. PS: if you are obsessed with baby pics you should see my instagram. Holy cow I take too many :P


So obviously some big changes in my life huh? Now it's time to get back to running and lose all this baby weight. Any one down for a challenge?? I have to start very slow (I haven't run in months and my asthma is still a little shaky) so I plan to start walking first (we've already done a few) and then start with a couch to 5k program just like I'm brand new to running. If you are thinking about taking up running, now's a great time to do it because we can all be newbies together and stay motivated. If you want to do this with me please comment below! I pinky swear I'll be posting a lot more as I get back into things!

Also I have a daily mile account for tracking my mileage (it's new for my new name/email) that I just started using if you want to follow me or add me as a friend please do!

  1. Congratulations on everything!!! She is absolutely beautiful! I've taken 6 weeks off from running because of a surgery but will be starting back in the next couple of weeks. I'll be a "newbie" with you =)

    1. Yay for fake newbies! Haha. Hope everything went ok with surgery. I've been a baby about my delivery (asthma attacks I can totally deal with but body parts needing stitches, no thanks!) haha

  3. Congratulations! Your baby is precious!!! I am looking forward to getting married in a little less than two months myself, and I would love to start back up running to keep me excited and motivated to work out. Congratulations again!

  4. Congrats on your engagement and definitely run! It'll help you deal with the stress of last minute "did we order enough napkins" and "what do I get the groomsmen??" type stuff too!

  5. You're gorgeous! She's gorgeous! Ahh! I'm so happy for you! :) I'm curious to know what being pregnant with asthma was like (I've never been pregnant but expect to be at some point in the future). I heard for some women it gets better, for some it gets worse (I take it it got worse?) and it terms of meds, it's important to keep them up to make sure the baby gets enough oxygen? Congrats again!

    1. thank you!! i was worried about all that stuff too. I'm thinking i'll write a post on it as there wasn't much info out there when i googled. long story short, my dr said that yes it's true: 1/3 of women improve, 1/3 get worse, 1/3 stay the same. I got worse in the beginning and then I got really careful about avoiding any and all triggers (we're talking practically no exercise, less time outside, etc.) and I got much better. The only time it was really hard was at the end when every woman is so short of breath just from having a giant baby up in their lungs. lol. Labor was much easier than I thought (my dr even expected a c-section!) but again I'm sure that's different for everyone. And yes, you keep up your meds (in fact my dr upped mine) because oxygen trumps not wanting to take medicine. Most of them are safe anyways!

  6. Congratulations on getting married and having a new baby! Babies are so amazing and grow so fast! I just had a baby in October and didn't exercise while pregnant but I really want to get back into the swing of working out. My biggest hold back is my out of control asthma and lack of controller medicine due to my son's pediatrician saying I shouldn't take advair while nursing. I usually only take controller medicines during the winter and spring. But any way my question for you: do you have trouble running when it is cold? If so what do you do to be able to handle the cold on your lungs?

    1. my dr didn't say anything about advair which is the medicine I'm on so I will have to talk to her ASAP! I have tons of trouble in the cold. The best thing you can do is obviously try to run indoors on a treadmill, but if you can't the thing I swear by is drinking hot water. I put it in a thermal water bottle and sip on it during my run. It helps me a lot!

  7. Congratulations on your marriage and your new baby!

    I just found your blog while looking up wheezing while running. I don't know that I have asthma, but I now have asthma-like symptoms while running following a pulmonary embolism in 2012. I took 2 months off and now my lungs are unhappy and I'm starting over again. I plan to save your blog as a favorite and check back to see if you are writing about your progress. It's inspiring to read the stories of other people. I will also be following a plan similar to the couch to 5k program. Good Luck with everything! ~Laura

  9. I worked for a large Fitness Company which provided me with a good salary, a company car, laptop, mobile phone and a residence were i stay. All I had to do was work 7 days a week, 10 hours a day. The company was very ‘sales driven’ and as long as I created good ‘numbers’ nothing could happen to me. But making sales meant that the people who already joined our clubs didn’t get the attention they needed, and left. I preferred to embrace the existing members instead of the stress of gaining enough new members. To make a long story short, I wasn’t useful for the company anymore (although my clubs gained profit month after month) so I got kicked out of the company in a very bad way. They took the company car, laptop, mobile phone, and the residence. I thought to myself i am good at what i do any i can get a spot at another company but i was wrong every interview i went for all i heard them say was that i am too old to make the number of sales that will be required that they needed younger and vibrant person. They did not even give the chance to prove myself and calling me old , i am just 46 . I had my family to care for my part time work was not doing it for me i knew i needed a job with go pay it was the only way out of the mess i was in. I came across an article on the Internet were some one was talking about how he got the job he lost back and that a spell caster called Akpe Osilama helped them casted a spell that get him is job back. Honestly it sounded crazy to me and impossible because i did not even believe in all those kind of stuff. But things began to go bad i was always fighting with my wife over silly things and i was not getting call from any company no body wanted me. Out of desperation i contact the spell caster with hopes that some how some way i was going to get something out of it . I just want to say this, world is bigger that we all think there are forces and power we can not explain i say this because Akpe Osilama got me back my job and also made me the assistance sales manager of that same fitness Company that fired me. He did not ask me to pay anything for the spell he did for me which was surprising but he told me those who gave him the power did not ask anything of him so he is just trying to help helpless as much as he can. However i was to get some materials that was going to be used for spell but i asked him to get them for me with the total cost i sent to him because if i was to get them myself i would have broken some laws and gotten into trouble. Just after he finish the spell he sent me a package with instructions on how to use make it effective. Just after 24 hours the CEO of the company came personally to my house asking me to come and work for the company again and promising to increase my salary and making me the assistance sales manager. Just like that my life was back on track. Call me a fool or anything you please i do not regret contacting the spell caster for help my advice, do the same using this as contact medium { CHIEFPRIESTAKPEOSILAMASPELLCAST@YAHOO.COM } PLEASE ALL OUT THERE THAT WISH TO USE THE SERVICES OF THIS GREAT SPELL CASTER CALLED AKPE OSILAMA, BEWARE OF SOME PEOPLE THAT MIGHT COPY THIS COMMENT AND CHANGE JUST ONLY THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER AND HIS MAILING ADDRESS. AND ALSO READ CAREFULLY AND OBSERVE THE DATE IT WAS POSTED. BE ORIGINAL AND NOTE THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT ARE NOT REAL SPELL CASTER APART FROM AKPE OSILAMA THAT HELPED ME, I CAN BOLDLY SAY THE REST ARE CON ARTIST AS IT WAS ONLY AKPE THAT HELPED ME. I AM TRYING TO EMPHASIS ON THIS BASE ON THE FACT THAT I DON'T WANT YOU THAT NEED HELP TO FALL INTO THE WRONG HANDS. BE WISE !
