Ok so since my last "poor me" post I've actually accomplished somethings...
One...on Monday I officially joined weight watchers and went to my first meeting. Thankfully my scale and theirs is the same so the number wasn't shocking...I was pre-shocked at home lol. I love the new point system, it totally makes sense that the values should be determined by how your body digests foods. I got the app on my phone, super handy and easy to use. I love the web site and I actually get excited to track my food. I'm actually looking forward to getting weighed next Monday!
Wednesday I popped over to TJ Max and bought myself a new lunch bag. It's my little way to go you did something good for yourself treat, that and Hubby lost my old one.
Two...I started taking my herbs. I called to find out my dosing, some went up and some went down and one got dropped all together. I started taking them Tuesday morning because I altogether forgot on Monday. So far, I feel like crap and they are making me burp some weird clove/Cinnamon flavor, I know that my stomach will need time to adjust. The last time I took them I felt great with in 2 weeks. I have a follow up call on Nov 12 to see how things are going.
Three...I decided to drop coffee. Its bad for you, bad for me more so because I cant take the caffeine. It really screws me over on top of my insomnia. Plus its 5-7 points the way I like to drink it with cream and sugar. My next big feat will be to drop the diet coke. I had stopped it for a while and was drinking juice instead but now that's out because of the sugar....baby steps.
I started reading a blog about someone else's trials and accomplishments with PCOS. I think its funny reading about how someone else has done all the things I'm doing including wasting time at work googling any and everything about fertility and blogging about it. She's a real person, with the same real problem and real anxiety who has twin girls today. It makes me feel good and inspired and not alone to read it. I even emailed her today, we'll see if I get a response.
I'm still reading the beauty detox book. Slowly but surely. Good thing is that it follows the same principles as weight watchers so it will be easy to incorporate.
I've also started knitting again. I'm working diligently on some baby scarves for my friends visit to NY this winter. I'm very excited I just learned how to make a button hole. My next you tube video will be on how to crochet chevron stripes!!
I feel good.
