Struggling with my weight for my entire adult life, I finally decided life is too short to live perpetually unhappy. I have lost 55 pounds in the last year and am currently working on the last 25.

Yesterday was National Running Day! (I actually didn't know until I saw the bajillion blog posts about it...heh). But I shall celebrate none-the-less even if I'm a day late.

Now I'm no Pioneer Woman, who got 48,000 comments on ONE BLOG POST (I left a comment myself to try to win an awesome turquoise pot...ha! No such luck.)

I hope many of you have actually gotten the chance to make them and taste them for yourselves. This excitement and pinning action piqued my interest.
When the opportunity came up to do a guest post for Ashley (My Food N' Fitness Diaries), I felt it was the perfect time to share my story - one that hasn't been told - of my 3 year struggle to become a mom.

And she is having to make some changes to her lifestyle, her exercise habits, and her nutrition in order to make that a possibility.
