Hello all my blogging buds. I can't say thank you enough for all your concern and comments. I am actually feeling much more like myself and THANK GOODNESS I'm looking more like myself and less like a bloated water buffalo! Of course the relief didn't come until after a total meltdwon complete with hysteria on Sunday........my hubby will surely be an alcoholic after this month??!! I am soooo proud of myself for maintaining the exercise regime in spite of the excess water. If I may toot my own horn, I have been to the gym 6 out of the last 7 days and completed 5 hours of cycling in those 6 days. I feel great!! If I could ever give one piece of advice for someone who hates exercise (like I did) it would be to find something that you like and then kick yourself in the butt to go until it just becomes a habit! When in doubt just DO IT!
Now, I wish that my food had been a bit better.......it hasn't been bad but I would like to keep my calories around 1500 as opposed to the 1700 I've been eating. I know some of my munching has been due to hormones and stress so I'm not totally beating myself down but I really want to get back on the right track before I get pregnant. Oh speaking of fertility, the hubby goes for his "test" this Friday. He is a bit freaked out about running through town with his contribution in a cup - I on the other hand find this component of our fertility quest absolutely hysterical. I can just picture him trying to get to the dr. office, navigating through construction and traffic while protecting his "specimen".........guys are so funny about that kind of thing anyway so can you just imagine??? Well maybe you shouldn't imagine my husband in that predicament but just imagine some random guy - trust me it will bring a sadistic smile to your face!
Okay - I know this is short but it's 11:00 p.m., I'm tired and have a LONG day tomorrow so I'm off to sleep. Thanks again for being so supportive. Your concern made me cry...well maybe that was the progesterone but I cried regardless!
