Getting back on track!

Dec 26, 2011 - 0 comments

Ok, I haven't been on the site for quite a while now...  I have been struggling with my weight for quite some time, and also struggling with infertility for a long time.  I have had a lot of stress and trials in the workplace, and I have been letting it affect me in every aspect.  I am working on getting on a more positive track!

I have begun looking for other jobs (while continuing to apply myself fully to my current position).  I am also working on getting a lot of things in a better working system (I am a supervisor) at the office.

I have begun to start to eat more healthy and I am going to find a way to get more energy to be able to get moving and exercising more again!!

I am hoping that by putting all of this in writing, it will help me keep my goals better!!!

Relaxation

Aug 06, 2010 - 0 comments

Ok, so I finally found a good way to relax - it's being a bum out on the beach!  lol  I got to the beach last Saturday (7/31) and we are leaving to go back home tomorrow (8/7).  We went out on a Pirate Ship (which the kids and adults loved!), enjoyed dining on the beach, swimming in the pool and ocean, and just bumming around.  

I don't remember the last time I was able to relax like this.  I am still working on my weight issue, and I really hope that this brief time in paradise has been beneficial to me as well.  I was also hoping that the relaxation would help get my cycle back on track, but today was cd 31 and still no af...  I have had cramping and some headaches today, but no af....  Oh well, it will happen sooner or later, or this might be a month that I skip completely - it's been a while since that has happened, so...  

I know tomorrow will not be very relaxing - We will be piling into the car - that's four adults and two 5 year olds!  They did really well on the trip down here, so hopefully they do as well on the way home.  Luckily, they each have their own dvd player with headphones!  I can't wait to get home to see my hubby - I haven't seen him in 1 1/2 weeks!!

Alright, that's it for now I think!  I hadn't journaled anything in a while, so I felt I would spill a few things!

Focusing on Weight Loss

Jul 17, 2010 - 0 comments

The last 3 years have been rough - we have been trying to conceive for the past 3 years, which is needless to say very frustrating and tiring.  Earlier this year I told the fertility dr that I was going to take some time off and try to focus on me...  I know I need to find a way to deal with the stress and definitely lose weight!

I was the heaviest I have ever been - so I decided enough was enough and I wanted to do something about it.  So, I met with my dr last month and we discussed my lifestyle.  I went back to the dr yesterday and I had lost 6 pounds since my previous visit.  The dr was very happy with those results.  He said that with me being heavier and wanting to lose a lot of weight, he would prefer I keep doing it slow and steady.  

We are currently doing a weight loss competition at the office too.  That is helping because I am Team Leader of my group.  I find that motivating them and supporting them is helping me as well.  

I am so happy to finally be working towards my goals!!  I really think that once I lose the weight and become healthier it will also help with my fertility problems.  I know that I will struggle with this weight loss plan, but I also know that I am a strong woman who can do this!

Feeling Good

Apr 23, 2010 - 0 comments

Okay, so today is my 5 year anniversary with the hubby - part of me can't believe it's been 5 years, but the other part can't believe it's only been 5 years!  I am grateful to have such a wonderful, loving husband, and I think that sometimes I forget that because I get so caught up in everything else.  
We are currently taking a break from the fertility meds and whatnot - and I am doing okay with that now.  I am hoping it will happen on it's own (I am using OPKs to help out).  I think this fertility struggle has brought us together more - this July will be 3 years we have been trying, and I have gotten him to really open up to me in the last 6 months with everything that's been going on.

Okay, feeling better - just wanted to put that all in writing!
