Nada.. I did some wash and took the doggie out, but the treadmill and elipical and still making very expensive laundry racks... I can make excuses but I just didn't feel like it today. I need to just make myself DO IT and stop making excuses,,, tomorrow is another day and I will do better! I lost 50 pounds before, I can do it again :-)

You can do it! I can't get on the indoor workout machines unless it is pretty cruddy outside. Can you take the dog for a longer walk or do something else fun for a bit of exercise tomorrow? My dog was really excited about our run on Saturday, and I really needed his encouragement.

My Monday update:

Current weight: 204.2
Change: -0.2
Total loss: 3.5
Exercise goals this week: more yoga
Diet goals this week: cut back on coffee

A little bummed about today, but i suspect it might be because my weigh in last week was misleading. Once again, I'll take it.

I did well cutting back on soda. I did have a few cans throughout the week, but much less than usual. I even had a day where I didn't have any at all. This week I'll try to do the same with coffee. What do you guys think about caffeine and ttc?

Hi All - I am changing my check in day to Sunday since I am working again on Mondays. I hope you are all well and feeling super-fit this week. I had some stomach issues flare up last week, and I spent most of the week moping about it. I finally forced myself to get to the gym on Friday and for a short swim and some pool play with my daughter yesterday. I totally blew my workout goals, but I started trying to get back on the portion-watching wagon Wednesday. It sort of worked.

Flori - congrats on cutting down the soda. I had to give up soda and coffee in high school to help settle my stomach down, so I haven't thought much about how they affect ttc and general health. My guess is that most things in moderation are probably fine. The caffeine withdrawal headaches and sleepiness are probably not worth any benefit you might get.
Current Weight: 144.4
loss: -0.4 lbs
goal: 139 (just because)
Plan: Make appointment with my doctor to see if I can find a way to eat vegetables again. Try for 5 workouts, even if I am still feeling cruddy.

Hi Ladies - It is getting lonely in here. I hope you all are well. Were any of you in the path of the hurricane? I did a little stress eating worrying about my parents, but they stayed safe and escaped major damage.
I had a mixed week. I met my workout goals (5 workouts) with one walk, two runs, a yoga class, and one elliptical/lifting trip to the gym. I also celebrated Halloween. I love candy, and it will be the end of me. This is also my weight gaining week of the month, so I hope this is temporary. Either way, no more candy for me.

Weight: 146.0
Gain: 1.6 lbs (BOOO)

Goal for next week: five more workouts and losing a little weight.

Totally feel off the wagon because of the storm and having tons of junk food in the house. Plus my stomach has been acting up, which makes me hunger when it calms down... so I need to start AGAIN... sigh!

Hi Val - Sorry the storm and your stomach threw you off the wagon. Are you guys ok now? I gain weight when my stomach acts up too. It stinks when junk is the only thing that really works for you, but it passes. Good luck getting back to a healthy diet and exercise plan. It doesn't matter how many times you fall off the wagon, as long as you get back on it quickly.

If you are looking for healthy things to eat, can you tolerate butternut or other winter squashes? I just started eating them again, and it seems to be really helping my stomach. Squashes have to be really well cooked, but they help me get away with eating other things that would normally be really bad (popcorn and apples).

I haven't tried eating them, but I might like them. I love sweet potatos and don't know why I don't eat them move LOL I'm heading back to the gastro doc on Wednesday, so we will see if some needs meds help.

Good luck at your gastro appointment. I had to go on meds at the end of the summer, and it was really helpful. I would really like to get off, but I can't quite do it. Sweet potatoes work well for me too. I hope you can find something that works for you!

A late check in for this week
Loss: -0.5 lbs (145.5)
I didn't eat as well as I could have, but I did meet my workout goals. I am going to try for five workouts this week again. We will see how it goes.

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around, I've been a bad kid. The holidays are stressful for me (good and bad stressful, I think) and I haven't spend much time online catching up with everyone here. I am so tired everyday after work that I just curl up in bed next to hubs (who is usually sleeping since he works overnight) and nap with him. No exercise for me!

I weighed myself last week and was nearly the same as I was a few weeks ago.. 204ish. I guess I will weigh in on Sunday before the Thanksgiving fun begins. :shock:

Good news on the diet front- I got really sick on 10/30- really feverish and stayed that way all of Halloween. The next day at a scheduled doc appt, he checked my throat and saw that I had a pretty nasty tonsil infection and prescribed me some antibiotics. Anyway, since I really hate having soda when I have a sore throat I haven't had any since October 30. Little win for me. :) Oh, also I've cut my coffee to almost purely decaf when I have it and have switched to an unsweetened tea from Starbucks when I indulge myself there.

Bad news on the health front- At that same doctor's appointment on 11/1 he was talking to me about my bp and he mentioned that I am on A LOT of medication, which I think I am too. I told him that I kinda feel like it might not even be enough because I'll have days when it gets pretty high (130-140/90s). He asked me if I had ever had my kidneys checked and I said that all of my bloodwork has come back with normal kidney function. He decided to refer me to a specialist anyway and wanted me to have an ultrasound done on all of my "systems" so I went in on 11/8. I figured all they'd find was a gallstone (they found one when I was pregnant with Gracie) but when I turned to see the screen as she was checking my left kidney I saw a black blip on the screen. I asked "Is that a cyst?" and she said yes very nonchalantly. I know they aren't supposed to discuss their findings with the patients so I didn't press her for more.

I couldn't get an appointment with the nephrologist until 11/29 so I've been freaking myself out. Googling is a bad thing! I couldn't even get a follow-up with my PCP until 12/6, so I figured I'd just talk to him about everything then. I am hoping that since they weren't like "GET IN HERE NOW" it's nothing major, but it's still scary. I don't want to be 31 with cancer and no baby. :(

The only bright side is that I read that kidney cysts are 1)sometimes completely irrelevant in a person's life and they can live with them and not have any ill effects and 2)they sometimes cause high bp, which, if they could get rid of the one I have and my bp normalizes without or with less medication, would be so amazing. My husband said something to the effect of "how awesome would it be if they drained the cyst and your bp went to normal and you got pregnant again and everything was okay?". Fingers crossed.
