Today is officially CD1 of TTC#1, Cycle#4. I feel pretty blah, as is typical of CD1. But, I'm staying positive about my empty ute by remembering Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plants to give you hope and a future". I know that God has big things in store for Tyler and I, and that those plans are bigger than we can even hope or imagine.

Not much has been happening around these parts, other than trying to keep up with our New Year's resolutions and cleaning up around the house some. As for our resolutions, here's an update:

-exercise at least 3 times per week - we've already worked out together 3 times since the 1st, plus I've done yoga on my own
-eat healthier (including using our new salad bowls for salad and not dessert, LOL): this isn't going so well yet, but we're getting there!
-stick to budget better and save more: we're doing pretty well here, we used some giftcards for eating out/buying stuff rather than our own money
-be more eco-friendly: we have plans in the works for this. We already drive fuel-efficient vehicles, purchase 100% wind energy from Reliant for our electricity, and try to have the AC/heater off when we can. I also plan on purchasing eco-friendly laundry detergent (from www.crunchyclean.com) and some dryer balls (Fuzzy Wuzzy dryer balls, to be exact) in addition to finding green cleaning recipes.
-get pregnant - haven't really worked on this yet, but this month probably won't be the one :-(

I hope everyone else is having a great new year so far and working toward their goals/sticking to their resolutions. Keep your eyes peeled for that post about the things I want to do!

Nice work lady, you're off to a great start in my opinion!

Hugs! I know it must be discouraging to move on to cycle 4! Just keep reminding yourself that it takes average couples around 6 months to conceive. I know that you know that already. :-)

You sound like you've started the new year with a great outlook--being yoked to God through it all is the best place that we can be.
