And go

I start birth control today. On Wednesday we have our IVF consult to go over our calendar and pay for our portion of the costs. Since I’ve basically got the month off, I’m drinking a big cup of coffee while I type this. (coffee, I’ve missed you). I’ve been playing with bourbon concoctions to serve with Thanksgiving dinner (bourbon, I love you). I also decided to take the next 20 days to try to lose a little of the weight I’ve packed on this past year. 11 pounds, if you’re curious. Between depression, fear that exercise would “screw with things” (ha), medication, and my metabolism taking a crap, I’ve never been more out of shape. The plan is to do Ripped in 30 for the next 20 days (I actually started yesterday) with a day off each week. I’m also running again and can I tell you how much I’ve missed it? I used to be an avid runner but more than one of my doctors told me to tone it down while we are trying. I stopped all together. I have a thing for being extreme, maybe. I don’t have any specific goals in mind; I just want to feel as strong and healthy as possible before I start stimming on Dec 3.

    I’m trying to get back in shape, too. Although, maybe taking it a little easier on myself than you are. And feeling like a total slacker for it! Hope all goes well on Wednesday!
