My Vacation

Well...nothing exciting has happened this week except starting my period...oh joy!!! Now I wait till next month to start the pill and then October to start injections again. In the mean time...for the 12th time, I plan on starting my low carb (not no carb) diet and going back to the gym next week. It is hard to diet...especially when you are depressed. I don't smoke or drink so my comfort is food, and contrary to what most people say, exercising does not release endorphins in me, it does not relax me, it does not relieve my stress. So, what's a girl to do? She could shop. But we need money for treatments. She could smoke. I can't stand cigarettes. She could do recreational drugs. They're illegal and not good for reproduction....sigh. She could drink. It's not worth the hangover. She could eat. Ding, ding, ding...we have a winner!!!

Seriously though, I went balls to the wall when I first started the low carb diet and started in Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet...no carbs at all. That almost killed me. The Dr. said to start in Phase 3 (she recommends this to ALL IVF patients), eating whole grains and whole wheat......I suppose I can handle that for 3 months...I better look DAMN good when those 3 months are up!!

So, the rest of my week has been spent swimming, dinner with a friend, lunch with my daddy, dinner and a movie with my sis in law, dinner and a movie with Joe, shopping and hanging out with family. I included a few pictures from the night my niece and nephew slept over...other than that, I didn't take any pictures...very unlike me.

good luck on the diet. I will be doing on 3 months after the baby is born. I am going to nurse and they say not to diet for 3 months.
Oh and your house looks beautiful in the background and so are your neice and nephew!

You are a better woman than I! I'm trying really hard (ok, kinda hard) to keep up with the no processed carbs thing and it sucks. I think I'm actually gaining weight on it. (Gee, is somebody binging on ice cream after being good for a day or two? Who, me?)

If you don't mind my asking, Amy, who is your doctor? Just curious. You can email me if you want at mountcool2000(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Hope you're hanging in there!
