An update and an award
Hello all. Things are going pretty well here. I worked from home Wednesday and Thursday and went back to work on Friday. I was so tired out by the end of Friday, we really worked hard. To celebrate Valentine’s Day hubby and I went to a sushi place we have wanted to try for a while last night. We splurged and got something called the sushi boat. I wish I had a camera with us. It was HUGE. It was a bit expensive, but it was worth what we got, and it was our Valentine’s night out. I really liked the rolls that had rice, but didn’t like the sashimi as much. I want to go back there and try the other foods they have. Yum.
Things on the GI diet have been going pretty well. I haven’t been 100% yet because I am trying to go through the groceries I bought last week. However, I am trying to be more conscious. For example, I am only eating half of a bagel for breakfast. I enjoy larger thomas’s bagels, but they have so many carbs and are probably not the carb I should be eating. But only eating half a bagel with egg beaters makes it a little better. I think I’m going to switch to whole wheat english muffins instead. I’m also trying to always have a protein or a veg with my carbs to stop with the carb coma. So far so good. I was a bit of a nerd and made an excel spreadsheet with a column for veggies, protein, fruit, and carbs that are low gi that I can eat. This way when I do go shopping on monday it will be easier to shop and easier to pick what I want to eat. I haven’t noticed that much of a change yet, but it’s only been a few days. I do notice that I’ve been a little happier recently and I was actually craving fruit today instead of carbs so yea for that.
Tonight is day 9 of taking the Prometrium. Sweet. Only two more days of taking it and then hopefully my period will show up soon after. I still am wondering if I should do Femara/injections or Clomid/injections. Hubby is all for Femara/Injections and that’s what we probably will do, but part of me is still thinking. I need to schedule an appointment to learn about injections soon.
Now onto quick things that make me happy – 1. I just got my hair cut yesterday short. It had been a really long time since I had gotten my hair cut and I needed it. It’s also nice to have a new cute style. I fashioned it off this picture of Sel.ena Go.mez. 2. Yea for the Olympics starting. I love watching the Opening Ceremony and all the events. 3. I got an award!
