So, I am not really sure what's going on. I should be on my cycle right now, I've spotted a few times, but the flow hasn't started. I've been spotting for about 4 days, but not every day. I'm still wondering if I'm pregnant. But, the pregnancy test was negative. But, I took pills that make me have a cycle. I'm not sure if it is just wishful thinking or if I really am pregnant. I don't necessarily have any physical symptoms yet. But, I would be about 2-3 weeks if I am pregnant.

    Test again in another week. Sounds promising. Don't take any more pills to bring on your period until you know for sure. I hope that you had a blessed Christmas.

This week

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Well, I have been secretly hoping against all hope that I am pregnant despite a negative pregnancy test. I kept telling myself that I took it too soon. But, I finished the pills that make me have a cycle yesterday. My cycle started this afternoon, so I definitely am not pregnant. Although, I did eat a whole jar of dill pickle spears last night. The jar said that the pickles were 0 calories, but Spark recorded them at 5 calories. But, I can start taking my fertility pills soon and I can start taking my basal temperature now.

I weighed in for the Lovely Limes challenge I'm doing this morning. I lost 1 lb even though I have not been that careful about what I've eaten in the past few days. I'm going to go back to being strict about what I eat. Hopefully I will lose more weight when I weight in next week.

    You can do it Bekah! More weight next week is fine, but you should still celebrate the pound you lost this week! Less is LESS! It's ALL good! Stick to it! emoticon

This weekend has been horrible for my calories. Friday, when I went outside to return to work from lunch (I came home for lunch), my car wouldn't start. So, my hubby drove me to work and then picked me up when I was finished. We spent most of Saturday wondering if we were going to have to run to my in-laws (2 hours away) so that our mechanic could fix the car. Well, it ended up that our mechanic came to us. My hubby ordered 3 large pizzas for the 4 of us to eat. He ordered mine with sriracha honey sauce instead of marinara sauce on the pizza. No one but me at the pizza. I at 3 slices last night. Then, today I've had 4 slices of pizza. Although, I did go workout. I walked a 22 minute mile (at varying speeds) and biked a mile and a half in 12 minutes. I normally walk a mile and ride a mile then quit. I am wanting to change gyms, but my hubby wants to look into the gym I want to switch to. In addition to the pizza, I have had cottage cheese, an orange, and a small salad. For the second time since I've started losing weight, I had over 2000 calories. But, I'm hoping this will be the last time until I'm pregnant that I go that high on the calories.

    Life always seems to throw us curve balls. But you appear to be handling them well and know how to be better at hitting them next time. Great!

Merry Christmas

Thursday, December 11, 2014

I went Christmas shopping today. Although, I spent more than I intended on, I got gifts for my son and niece that will be born tomorrow (C-section). Work was a breeze because I took the morning off so I could take my husband to the dentist first thing this morning. We were back home by about 9:30, so I took off around 10:30 or 11 and went shopping. It took me about 45 minutes to get the few things I needed to get. I also got gifts for my students and the name I drew in our gift exchange at work. Overall, it's been a good day.

  emoticon I wish I could start early, but it just does not feel like Christmas until I am out and about in the crowds. Kudos to you for getting it done.

    I love Santa Claus'ing. Pick something up for someone, drop it on their desk or porch. Have items to hand out to the panhandlers--Socks stuffed with candy ....

So much better than family shopping. This year we are doing a meager Christmas, no more than $30 each. It is making us think a lot more before we spend. Have a wonderful Christmas with the new baby and joy in your family.

Update from Yesterday

Sunday, December 07, 2014

Well, I took the pregnancy test this morning, and I am not pregnant, as I thought. I started the pills to begin my cycle today. I will be taking fertility pills as soon as I have a cycle, so I will hopefully be pregnant soon.

    Don't be too down about it. Hopefully the pills will help you get your hormones in order so you will be able to get pregnant soon. Will keep you in my prayers. Eileen
