It's been almost 3 months since my last post. Honestly I haven't felt the urge to blog at all. Or run. I was just so tired. Why? Well at lot has happened in the past three months.
At the end of June we adopted a dog from the Humane Society. We re-named him Jackson and he quickly took a place in our hearts. He gets along with us just fine but he hates the vet. We think he was left on the street for a while and/or abused.

About 2 weeks later, on June 12th, Adam and I took a drive to Dunedin. We got some dinner and then watched the sunset. It was great view on the pier, but we decided to head to Clearwater for a stroll on the beach. The weather was great, there were very few people around. And there were fireworks in the distance. It was there that Adam proposed to me. Of course I said yes.

We had talked about marriage and a wedding before this so we starting thinking about planning a wedding. We were thinking maybe November or December would be good. We starting looking at ideas for wedding (Yay for Pinterest!) and thinking about dates.
Wedding planning in itself could take up a lot of time and energy.
If this wasn't enough good news a few days later we found out that I was pregnant. It was exciting and scary all at the same time. Of course I wondered if I would do everything right. Would I be good at being a mommy? I also now understood why I had been a bit tired and cranky lately.
And then the exhaustion set in. For all of those moms that have gone through pregnancy with energy - I envy you. The first trimester, and very beginning of second, were torture in terms of energy levels. All I wanted to do was sleep. I barely could get through my days at work and I was being a lot less productive than usual.
Usually I would workout or run a few times a week. Even the thought of that made me tired. I couldn't even clean my house or do laundry. I see so many people running half marathons and doing workouts throughout their pregnancy and I have no idea how they do it. I thought there was something wrong with me. Apparently, according to the doctor, this is all normal and every pregnancy is different.
Luckily most of that exhaustion is gone now. I do get more tired than usually but my motivation to be active and normal is coming back. Probably a good thing since our wedding is just 10 short days away!
I hope to start blogging more consistently now, as well as moving a bit more. Whether it be running or walking I plan on doing a 5k in the near future.
