Being bold...

Friday, February 15, 2013

Yesterday was awesome!!! I wasn't feeling much holiday spirit after taking care of some less than fun business in the A.M but, hubby managed to pull through and really make it a day to remember. We celebrated my birthday and Valentine's all in one day.

We renewed our vows at a free event at Unity Temple on the Plaza. They handed out gift bags, took pictures, and it was actually beyond awesome. This is something we had talked about doing in the future because we've had such a rough start but seem to be coming to terms with each other finally. It seemed to help lock in the changed "atmosphere" of our relationship and the new-found peace we've been enjoying. Glad things are on track.

Hubby surprised me next by taking me for a hair cut. I've been wanting to change my style but haven't had the guts for it. After much encouragement about how great I look 27 pounds lighter, toned up more than I've ever been since he's known and sporting my new to me size 16 jeans (note no 16W just 16)... I did it. I took that step and got a whole new hair style. I've been sporting my long straight layers for years so I may still be in shock but, it's pretty awesome. I must get pictures. I wanted to take pictures after I dyed my hair but, hubby told me "I should wait a few washes so I get the true color." Liar, liar...it was so I could take pics after the hair cut he plotted.

We completed the day with dinner at an awesome local restaurant. I had a small splurge but, end result left me within carb range but over about 80 calories. However, I am PAYING for it today. We eat very little butter or oil and our fat intake comes from the food itself and I use a lot of flax seed. I try to not even add anything when pan browning (cast iron is amazing for that). Anyhow, I indulged on deep fried things and buttery goodness without even thinking twice. I should have thought twice because I'm mildly traumatized seeing the results of fried food when your body isn't used to it.

For today...I'm sad to say 2 rounds of Clomid down and still no luck. A lot of effort got put into this last month and I'm pretty sure more medication will make me insane but, come tomorrow with hope and faith I start another round. God help us...that stupid medicine makes me crazy.

I got in 30 minutes on the bike in the typical TOM lethargy and misery. Food has been spectacular because I'm only eating vegetarian today I think I've had enough grease to last me a while. I've been getting in two toning videos a day for a while and despite feeling like a blob I will get them done today too.

Weight wise I've maintained for most of this week holding steady at 219 give or take .2 to .6 of a pound for water weight. With all the toning I've been doing I'm not going to trip on maintaining because I'm meeting my calorie goals and holding too my 30 minutes of cardio every day.

Well, I think I've well deserved a nap given the current happenings with my body I need a recharge and I feel like poo. emoticon

    Sounds like a good valentine's day. And good luck on the third round. Third time's the charm?

    emoticon Isn't it great to know you are doing the best for your body? And when you put a fried food in it - how different it makes you feel? Makes you want to only splurg every once in a while. Good job at getting that exercise in even when you aren't feeling your best emoticon And congrats on the new hair cut and the size 16! I will be doing a happy dance when I get there - right now I am in 18/20 but hey, it won't be long.
