Thursdays are my cheat day. This is because the hubby gets [aid today so we have a date night. Plus by this tie of the week the groceries are low, so I tend to meet him out for a quick lunch to get his pay check so I can go run errands. So, on thursdays I eat 3 meals out. Today is no different. Except I will be eating a healthy lunch at home. I love thursdays! Most of the tie I feel guilty about my indulgences but this week I've done such a good job of staying on task I do not feel that way.
Now given all of that I still workout on thursdays. Mostly because I know on Sundays I want the day off, so I tell myself I have to stay on the motivation train even though I am eating not as well as normal. Today's workout thus far was only one mile. Not nearly what I normally accomplish, but the day is still young. When I went walking I felt queasy and weak, so I stopped. Now my nauseated feeling has me wondering.
A little background...My husband and I got married in October. He is 36 and I will be 30 in a week. We have recently started trying to conceive. Okay, maybe not trying as hard as we should but more than before. I haven't gotten out a calendar or anything like that yet. It's only been two months. I was not on any type of birth control previously, due to family history of blood clots. Last month I was a week late for my monthly visitor and I thought for sure we got it right on our first round. I took several test that all came back negative. A friend of mine was convinced I was pregnant and the test were coming back negative because I drink such a high amount of water. I finally gave in and started to think she was right. Then my monthly visitor came and it upset me. I didn't think it would affect me in that way.
Today feeling the way I do I can't help but wonder. Is this it? Am I feeling sick and weak and tired because I'm pregnant? I don't want to get my hopes up, but I guess that happens naturally in this situation. I feel really positive although I only lost 1 pound this week. I feel like I can do it. But I'm just feeling icky.
The rest of my day will consist of running to the bank and post office and hopefully I will get some more cardio in. Although, it's looking unlikely. My cheat day menu: Breakfast: egg & cheese biscuit hash rounds and diet sunkist Lunch: turkey on wheat with light mayo sunchips and diet sunkist Dinner: a big cheeseburger salad and water with lemon. Yummy :) Can't wait to get that big burger. I rarely eat red meat, but today I look forward to it.
