Rainbow Party

When I do get pregnant I want to have a rainbow party to celebrate my rainbow baby. I have no idea if this will work but here is a link to a board on pinterest i'm working on

fertility tracker

It's been a while since I've posted about the whole getting pregnant part of this plan. Right now i'm on day 23 of my cycle. My cycles are usually around 34 days so i've got another 10 or eleven days. I've been pretty good at tracking my temperatures this month but it's not very consistent so the fertility tracker i've been using hasn't detected any ovulation this month. I'm thinking about getting and ovulation kit for next month but i've never used on of those before. I would love some advice and experience from anyone who has done that. Is it worth the money?
We are still trying to do this on our own for a few more months. June is our date that we had originally planned on going to talk to the doctor. I had mentioned it to Bobby that I would like to do it earlier but he didn't really react so I don't think it's going to happen. I'd really like to lose that 20 pounds before I go though so I may even wait longer. I've got to really step up my game though. I don't' want to wait longer but I also would love to go to my doctor and show him that i've lost 20 pounds. I'm going to do it! And it's going to be before June! I was telling someone the other day though that i'm glad we had to wait 6 months before we could try because I think we would have rushed into it and it's been good to heal for a while. It's been good to move on. I never thought I would think that.

Week 9

Pretty pathetic, I know. I was pretty disappointed at first too because I had started working out again this week after taking a break because I was sick. Then I realized that I really ate whatever I wanted for my birthday. I didn't check my eating much at all. I have a lot of work to do on that front. It's stupid too because I've done the education part of it. I know what i'm supposed to be doing. I just don't. The working out part I have down. I love that. I feel so good about that. I'm working out 5 days a week for 45 minutes and i'm pushing myself a little harder every day.
So, my new resolve is to go back to posting every day about what I ate. It will be a great motivator for me. What I need though is someone who will get on my blog regularly and check up on me so that I know there is some accountability. If I know there will be someone on here checking up on me and what I am eating it will be a very good motivation for me.
As I go along I will try to share what i've learned about eating low carb. I'm going to continue to educate myself because there can be no harm in that. I also always welcome advice from those that have been successful with low carb diets.
Thanks for reading. I really appreciate those of you that have commented.

Week 8

Ugh, I was doing so well all week. I didn't work out because I still wasn't feeling well and it was parent teacher conference week but I was still down in weight all week. Then I totally blew it yesterday. My family was in town celebrating my birthday and I kinda just let myself eat whatever the heck I wanted to. I don't really feel too bad though because hey, it was my birthday. If I can't splurge then, then when can I? And, at least I didn't gain weight. Also, I woke up so late this morning and actually ate breakfast before I weighed in so that my have skewed my number.
Anyway, i'm going to move on and be so much better this week. I'm going to get back into my workout routine. It's going to be hard because i've missed two weeks but i'm going to spend this week getting myself back up to speed. I really have missed it a lot. I've still got a bit of a chesty cough but I think it's going to be good for me to get back into my routine. Overall I do feel healthier and I guess that's what is important. I don't feel like I get as winded as easy. I'm excited about that and i'm excited to keep getting healthier. I really hate being so fat. We went to the planetarium yesterday and the seats were a little uncomfortable because i'm so wide. When we go somewhere to eat and have to sit in a booth I hate that most of the time it's hard for me to squeeze in. There are many embarrassing moments like that i'm looking forward to being done with. I want my new life to start so I need to kick it up a notch. Look for big numbers to come in the following weeks!

Week 7

Well, I'm very happy about the weight loss this week I just wish I could explain it. I guess I could attribute it to being sick. I haven't worked out all week and I haven't exactly eaten the healthiest. I mostly ate whatever sounded good. I have missed working out though. I'm hoping I get better soon so I can get back to working out.
Another period has passed too so i'm beginning another month of wishing, hoping, thinking, and praying. I think i'm going to go back to charting temperatures this month. I just feel like I need to do something else.
