Unbelievably, I realized yesterday that I didnot know what CD I was on. I literally had to take out my calendar and look. I honestly cannot tell you the last time that has happened. Normally I know right off the top of my head what CD I’m on and I am counting down to CD28 to POAS. Not this time. I have to admit that although it feels amazingly freeing, it also feels weird because I am so accustomed to keeping up with CDs, symptoms, medicines, etc. This month I used OPKs, had sex and that’s it. I’ve enjoyed wine, beer, wings and Mexican food. This weekend I plan to enjoy more beer while I watch football. It’s actually a wonderful break but at the same time I can’t wait to get back in the game.
I’ve also noticed that I’ve got my body back. My tummy pooch, though still there, is now back to it’s normal size as are my boobs. My mood swings are back to normal and my sleeping pattern has returned to somewhat normal. It’s actually pretty awesome to open up my closet and actually fit into all of my clothes again.
To help in getting my body back and into even better shape, I have been sticking with P90X. A wrench was thrown into my plans this week (what shold’ve been the week 5 workout) because I have a sinus infection and chest congestion. Obviously I have not been able to exercise-I can’t even sleep through the night without coughing. I have 4 make-up workouts to do so I am considering do them over the weekend if I feel up to it; if not then I will just be adding them as I go along. I continue to be amazed at how quickly my body responds to exercise and diet changes. I get results super fast, except of course in my lower belly. Oh well, I’ve lived with it for 33 yrs, I can live with it for a while longer.
Back to getting back in the game, I just ordered The Fertility Diet book. I have been generally following the recommendations for the past couple of months but I wanted to get the book and really dive into it. I want to learn all about the diet as well as get some more ideas on recipes. I am really looking forward to getting the book and learning even more about the diet. I figure that it can’t hurt anything and maybe that it+exercise+fertility self massage for endometriosis+IUI might just =a baby or two 🙂
