Ok, so it's been awhile. I've been busy thinking about blogging but not actually doing it, kinda the story of my life. Let's see, what's new with me?
1. I'm still not pregnant. But, I'm preparing for a FET (frozen embryo transfer) at the end of this month. I've been on Lupron shots for a few weeks and I just started Estrace and Estrogen patches today! (I should be a barrel of fun these next few weeks!) Transfer should be at the end of the month. I'm also going to try acupuncture this time around. My first appointment is in about a week. And I'm going to try meditation as well. I'm really trying to CALM myself down and think positively. I'm hoping this works because if not I'll be doing another retrieval and that was NOT FUN. I'd prefer to never have to do that again!
2. I'm back at the gym! Since I'm doing a FET and not a retrieval with stimulants I can still workout like normal. I started Jamie Eason's 30 day workout from Fitness RX at the beginning of the week. It was a great week! I'm lifting heavy and I'm planning to keep lifting heavy until someone tells me I can't anymore. I've also started tracking my food and I'm just generally trying to get back in shape and build some muscles.
3. My little brother left for Army National Guard boot camp at the beginning of August. I'm not happy about it, but respect his decision and I'm proud of him for not being afraid to do what he wants to do! I still miss him though. And it'd be nice if his Commander would update the FB page with some photos! Ha.
4. I'm toying with the idea of setting a goal to become a fitness model. It sounds ridiculous just typing it here! I just think even having that kind of goal would really help with my gym effort/eating. Believe me, I am in no shape to be a fitness model! But, I know that if I set the goal and got SERIOUS about my fitness and especially my food, I could be in an entirely different place in 6 months. Plus, fitness modeling doesn't require you to be 17 or 6', two things I am not! I think I'll keep the goal in the back of my head and see how the next month goes. Let's see how much fat I can burn and muscle I can build in 30 days.
On that note, I think it's time to do some cardio.
