Something's gotta give
Its amazing the rejuvenating property's wine and the ocean can have...
Our trip was a success. Husband did a really nice job in picking the hotel with a ocean view. We joined 2 wine clubs in the attempt to become grown ups LOL.
Nothing much has changed in this month. I got my herbs but I haven't started taking them. Boo on me. I just called to find out what dose I'm supposed to take. They are sitting on my kitchen counter wagging a finger of shame at me.
I jumped on the scale this past weekend and heard it cry "Uncle". I've gained another 10 lbs, bringing my grand total to a unmentionable number. Its disheartening because its the main thing I have to do, LOSE weight. If TTC isnt enough to drive me what is? One of my really good friends just joined weight watchers and asked if I would go with her. Ironically I got a email from work saying they offered a discount to join in a effort to promote healthy life styles. I decided to give it a shot again. I heard there was a new point plan and I'm not doing anything better so why not?
I was channel surfing last night and stumbled across an episode of sex in the city. It was the episode where Miranda is pregnant and is thinking of not having the baby and Charlotte finds out she has a 15% chance of getting pregnant because she has a hostile uterus. Parts of it made me want to bawl like a baby. I swallowed down my tears so my husband wouldn't look at me like a lunatic. It made me think about going to the HRC for a consultation. I have all the paperwork but havent followed through with an appointment because of the cost. The only doctor I've seen is my Gyn. so it might be a good call to get another opinion on how to move forward. Who knows? What if I have a hostile uterus on top of the PCOS?
We have also talked about potentially seeing a dr in Mexico. When Husband went to his dr to get checked out the dr refused to check his hormone/testosterone levels because of his age. He basically said we've looked at to many things online and wouldnt look into it further. I would never go to Mexico on my own. We actually got a recomendation from a friend who offered to go with us. I dont even speak spanish! I guess more on that later.
Back in August I had bought this book the beauty detox solution. I skipped around it a bunch, now that I've finished reading the hunger games trilogy I'm going to force myself to read it cover to cover. From what I have read it makes sense how she recommends to eat. I've been drinking the glowing green smoothie and its pretty good. I even have husband drinking it.
Somethings gotta give....I need to get back on track.
