My Love Hate Relationship with the Weekend

Let me be the first to say that I LOVE the weekend.  When the clock hits 4:30 on Friday I am out the door excited for things that I have planned to do or lack of sometimes!  My problem with the weekend is that I get off track.  I sleep in, (till 7:30 or so but hey I will take it), and don't get a workout in my normal time.  From there it continues to spiral because Matt and I go out to eat, have some drinks and then the process continues the next day.  Sometimes the complete opposite happens too where I don't eat enough calories because I am not on a schedule and just don't feel like eating/making something/cleaning up the mess!  Now I will say that I feel I make better choices when we go to dinner or maybe don't eat everything on my plate and bring it home for the next day or give it to the dogs.  However, we are eating late on the weekends because by the time Matt gets chores done and gets around it is usually 7 or 7:30 before we leave figure in wait time and waiting for our food and it can be 8:30 or 9 before we eat.  I know that is not good but I don't think there is much of a chance of changing it because there will always be chores.  Now I feel like I may be making excuses and I don't want it to sound like that because I'm not it is just how my weekends go and I'm not sure how to change them.

I'm on the 4th day of Chlomid and things are still ok.  No big side effects except a dull headache on the first day.  First and foremost I'm hoping this is the dosage that will make me ovulate and we can go from there.  Nothing else to say besides thank GOODNESS AF has left, I can feel energy coming back to me!!

I went to the big (that is a sarcastic big) library in my town and ordered 2 of the Insulin Resistance Diet books.  From reading other woman's journeys with weightloss this seems to be a popular one with woman with PCOS.  So when they arrive I am excited to dive into them. 

My BFF was here yesterday for some major girl time, (who doesn't need that), and we were discussing my PCOS.  Her and my other BFF were up here before Christmas and I told them about my diagnosis and they were both uber supportive. Talking to A yesterday she informed me she Web M.D'ed PCOS and she was like everything it said about you fit you too a T.  The hard time losing weight, the lengthy cycles etc etc.   It just made me feel good to know that she was understanding, loving and supportive.  She even gave me the African Fertility Doll she received as a wedding gift for safe keeping for awhile. 

So cheers to the weekend and to a brand new week that holds lots of possibilities!

  1. It's so awesome to have supportive friends through all this! I too, have a BFF who researches lots for me. They have been my saving grace throughout the years! IF also helped me weed out the not so supportive ones too. Excited to hear what the books from the library say.
