We're off to see the wizard...

Or my father in law...

Well after one night full of packing and one major desert attack, we are almost all all done. Before I could pack a single thing I had a massive desert attack! OMFG! I NEEDED desert! not like just any desert either. I NEEDED an orange freeze from Dumars.... UMMMY! Its like a creamcicle for all the old school kids like me, only its in a soft serve/ milk shake form. *drool*

Okay now that we've covered my insane milk shake addiction relapse...

We're off to UT in the morning, I have no idea what we will be doing ... yeah probly hanging out at the ski resort for me and my sister in law... and skiing for my husband... oh well I'll write an exciting fun filled thrill a minute post when we get home... but now the dogs are going nuts and I have a zillion things to do!

Monday, and other things!

Hello poor neglected blog people. I'm sorry. ( please hold the projectiles)

It's been the week that doesn't end around here. I had a big convention on last Saturday, and a class for work on Wednesday. Everything in between is a huge blur!(except for the mild case of food poisoning that Phil and I both got after eating at Gordon Burch on Saturday) We are going on vacation to Utah on Wednesday, I'm looking forward to that and the possibility of sleep in the near future. Today I have to clean the house that I've neglected for a week... YAY dust bunnies! Also on Saturday before the food poisoning set in, I bought a new outfit. The pants are a size 14!!! I haven't been able to buy a 14 for a few years! I am not under the delusion that I can just waltz into every store and buy a size 14. I know better then that. This particular store has odd sizes. But I also got my first pair of 16s there and about a month later I could buy one everywhere.

Alright on to what you've all been waiting for. I stayed the same. No weight loss or gain. But I am kinda happy about that... I didn't really fit in any exercise this week. ( I know bad infertile. but I was really busy! ) well I’m off to scrape the crud and dust off of everything I own and get to running on my treadmill, poor sad neglected treadmill. Then after that maybe I'll start packing for vacation. ( But food first... I'm hungry!)

Happy Monday!

Hi everyone! This week I lost another pound, bringing me down to 210. I'm going to stick to week one on the couch to 10k. I didn't do it enough last week ( more on that later) and its still really hard for me to finish out the whole work out.

This week has been busy! The husband came home, and I had to go to a big confrence. Now Im prepairng to go to a class on pool care stuff. ( I work for a condo this stuff is huge... you have no idea!) We went out twice for dinner, last night and a few nights ago, we went to Dummars, if you have the chance go... they invented the icecream cone... Plus they fed us at the confrence, really good food, so I am really supprised that I did lose a pound. ( although that is my goal 1 pound a week.)

Well I'm off there's house work to be done and this is my day off.

Monday weigh in

Hello people out there in internet land!

I was afraid that I would have to post today that I gained, not that I slipped up on my diet, but I just had that fear. I lost 4 pounds!!! YAY ME!!! That is amazing to me. It might not seem that all that much in the grand scheme of things, but to me it is!

I've decided that I am going to start the couch to 10k program today. In hopes to bump up my workouts.

Here is a run down of week one of the couch to 10 k that I am starting today.

Workout Week #1 : Brisk five-minute warm-up walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes. Do this 3 to 5 days.

Cool things from Today.

Okay so I had a pretty low key day today. I did however find a cupple of really cool things.

Thing 1 - This website sells gift card to local resteraunts at discounted price. They had them for everywhere I looked. http://www.restaurant.com/index.asp?pgn=home I haven't tried it yet, but if they work that would be nice.

Thing 2- I did a whole mile today! and I did it faster then the 3.5 I normally do. I did some of it at 3.7 and some of it at 4! YAY ME!!! ** Okay so the part I did at 4 was really hard, and I felt like i was going to go flying off the back end of the treadmill.

Accountability - Watch Me Shrink.

I think that I am in need of a place to put it all down and be accountable to achieve my weight loss goals. Its not that I've completely fallen off the wagon and into the pizza place. I've just been struggling and once again putting off my workouts. My progress is slowing, and that makes me feel awful. I think part of it is the terrible week I had. I know that’s not an excuse but I need to learn to turn my frustrations into workouts and not chocolate bars. Okay, so here's my laundry list of things I want to accomplish.

* I need to lose 40 pounds. I'm 215 and my goal is 175. Before September, 22. ( Why because its my birthday, and I want to be 24 and hot :)... or pregnant... but I'd settle for hot. )

* I want to be able to get a mile in on the treadmill with in the half hour I usually work out.

* I want to be able to go faster then 3.5 on my treadmill without feeling like I'm going to die. Also, eventually I want to be able to jog / run the whole time I'm on my treadmill.

* I want to feel healthier. I want a better body image. I want to look in the mirror and see what I think I look like, not what I really look like. ( not that this is all for looks... that’s really just a plus...)

* I want to be healthy and I want to be able to control PCOS instead of the other way around. I felt like that for a whole year the last time we saw an RE and I can't do that to my self again.

Okay... so short term goals - By May 31st- lose 17 pounds bringing me to 198 ( I haven't seen the 1 at the front of the number for a long time. ). I want to be doing at least half my treadmill work out at a 4 instead of 3.5. I want to workout for at least a half hour 6 times a week.

Now for the accountability part. Every Monday I'm going to post my stats on here.

Monday March 2nd. 2009-

Height - 6.1' ( okay this is not going to change but i figured I would include it here.)

Weight - 215

Waist - 37

Hips - 42

Bust - 39

Thigh - 26

BMI - 28 ( That puts me in the higher side of the overweight category. At 175 I would be at 23 putting me in the "normal" category. )

* Disclaimer ** I realize that I in no way will ever be movie star thin. I'm not trying to be like that. I am also not obsessed. I just want to be healthy. Also I haven't always been like this, between Clomid and Gonal F, I packed on the pounds. Doctors say that isn't a side effect, but it is. I know that being a good weight will aide in conceiving. That is what it all boils down to, conceiving.

Tune in next week to watch me shrink.

Grey skys are gunna clear up....

I'm better today.... but the weather is not. Its been raining for days, and tonight its supposed to snow. I HATE SNOW! Don't try to feed me the lines about how magical it is. I'm from New England. I did my time. Im done.

That said, I got myself a present that only an infertile can appreciate. I bought OPK Sticks.On ebay no less, for a discount. The last time I tried them, they always looked positive to me. That was back before I knew I had PCOS and when I thought a baby would just happen if we had unprotected sex. HA! I was dumb. So they should arive soon, with in the week. It's going to be interesting to see if I actually O. I doubt it... but it'll nice to know. :)
