NO PROBLEMS with any of them.

So her telling me I have PCOS was a real "HUH?" Moment. I have a feeling she was BS'ing me trying to make me feel worse since she told me my weight is CAUSING my PCOS.

I'm telling ya'll, that appointment was seriously screwed up.

Sounds like she just doesn't want to do anything for you!!

Def get a second opinion and find an OB who's willing to work for you. Have you had an A1C done recently?

I can't Zumba, but if I don't get a bfp this cycle I'll be happy to join you in sweating off the pounds.

I had to go look up what an A1C was. Lol. But, yes. When my OBGYN did blood work about a month ago she also did the glucose stuff. It was a big relief when she told me my glucose looked good and I was negative for Diabetes. It runs rampant in my family on BOTH sides and I am Hypoglycemic already. I had never been formally tested for Diabetes, so that was probably the only good thing about that appointment.

I can't Zumba, but if I don't get a bfp this cycle I'll be happy to join you in sweating off the pounds.
I hate the elliptical. I call it the devil machine. But I have to admit thst it makes me feel good and it gives me a darned great workout. I try to do a 20 minute mile on the treadmill then 20 minutes on the elliptical and finish with weight machined. My chiropractor suggested adding weight resistance because that helps add muscle and he says that women need muscle most before fat will burn off. We'll see!!

I am considering starting a blog to catalog my journey through this. Not sure what it will have or whst I'd say, but I feel like I need to have something to be able to talk about the good days and vent about tge bad.

Just a day ago I thought I found my true motivation. I felt strong and confident and knew I could do this. I had only found the tip of the iceberg!

I found my motivation tonight. While listening to Katy Perry's "Roar" blaring through my earbuds on the elliptical. I am NOT doing this for my doctor. I am NOT doing this for my job. I am NOT doing this for anyone or anything else. I AM doing this for ME!! Just try and stand in my way. You will not like the results. This. Is. For. ME. Every step. Every ounce of effort. Every drop of sweat. Every curse. Every sore muscle. FOR. ME.

It is amazing what a couple hours and 100 rounds of ammo on the gun range, 1.62 miles (max speed 3.7 mph and max incline 4) on the treadmill, 1.63 miles (level 3 difficulty) on the elliptical, bench pressing till my arms gave out, lifting weights, did some abs, and LOTS of stretching will do for you!!!

I just pray that I can hold onto my motivation. I am thinking of writing "Roar" across my bathroom mirror (ours is huge) to remind me every morning and every night.

I can not say that the last week and a half have been easy. I have had to push myself harder and harder and I have found an app that helps me track my calories and my workouts (My Fitness Pal). I noticed today that when I eat badly, working out is harder and my body can not go as far. Same goes when I do not stretch properly.

No matter what my DH is seeing the results even if I cannot. We measured my waist, hips, and thighs a week ago and I will measure again on Jan 26 and see if there are any differences in inches. I am avoiding scales. I do not want to make myself think about weight when I know I am building muscle. So I am going by inches. My DH agrees.

I have been logging my workouts in my app and on FB. I know it is probably odd to post them on FB but I feel like I am motivating myself and my friends by showing them that I am pushing through each time. I am honest and say when it sucked and when it felt awesome. I am honest when I eat like crud and still go workout when it is very hard todo so.

Our neighbors and my DH are working out with us. Brian and Kayla are trying to get in shape. Brian wants to quit smoking and working out is helping him. Kayla and I want to feel and look better. My DH is having to take things slower because he is still recovering from a torn Achilles tendon. His ankle and calf hurt him a lot some days.

I just keep telling myself to push further and keep trying. I know there will be better days than others. Today was not a great one, but I pushed and did it, and that is what matters.

Good luck girl on the eating better and the work outs! Some will be tough and some days will be a breeze, Just remember if you goof up don't throw in the towel. Think of it like if you forget to brush your teeth one morning you won't say forget it I'll quit brushing my teeth all together right? Just a word in case your hit a stumbling block

All of this hopefully will help with ttc but just will make you feel better physically and emotionally too!

I had not thought of it that way before! I'll have to remember that and add it to my blog! I started one yesterday (a private one for only certain allowed readers) to help me keep track of the good, the bad, and all the in betweens. That is definitely one I want to remember!
