Daily Life and Such...

This last week was National Infertility Awareness Week in the U.S.A..  I didn't really participate in it too much as ours here in Canada is right around the corner.  I didn't post anything on F.B. and I really haven't been blogging a whole lot lately.  I've been reading, but not commenting or posting...  Bad blogger! 

I would like to take a moment though and tell you to head on over to Hannah Wept and Sarah Laughed and check out her video she made "What IF".  It took a lot of courage for her to make this video and come out of the 'closet' so to speak.  Bravo Keiko!


So what have I been up to that has made me a bad blogger...?  A lot actually.  I have worked out every night last week, Spin Class 4 times, Bars and Plates 2x, and the eliptical in between.  I dragged JD to Bars & Plates and man was he sore!  Teehee!!  Our favourite instructor for Spin is on Thursday's and Sunday's, JD can only make it every other week, I usually don't go without him, well I went this week by myself.  It was the best I've ever done!  I did 20.5 km's in 45 minutes, burned over 400 calories!  YOWZA!!!  I was very proud of myself.

It takes a lot of prep work  for us to be able to maintain this schedule.  Our work hours are from 7:30 am - 6:00 pm, and we work an hour away from our house and gym.  So you see, our days are long...  I usually try to prepare our meals in advance.  Lastnight I made beef stew, mexican chicken stew, 2 salads with bar-b-que chicken, and a veggie tray.  That should last us for lunches and dinners thru the week.  Did I forget to mention I prepped all of this after I worked yesterday!  Phew!!!  I am one tired chickitta today!  But I feel accomplished and that's a feeling I haven't had in a long time!


Tomorrow I have an appointment with my RE, to discuss HRT.  I think I'm going to ask to be switched to bcp's.  That was it is easier to synch me up with a donor, should I ever get to cycle again!  Apparently I need to redo all of my infectious disease testing yet again.  It all expires on May 25, 2010...  Ahhh the testing that never stops. 

Sorry this post was written May 3, 2010...  I will do a second post with an update from the RE...

You are a super busy chickitta! I'm impressed. I wish I had half the dedication you do. I never did bcp during our cycle...they used my cyclical HRT to synch me but I guess whatever your RE's protocol is. Good luck...I am rooting for you to have everything go quickly and smoothly :)
