Back in the Saddle

Well sort of...  I'm back in the bike seat!  Monday night was my first night back at the gym.  I did Bars & Plates, and then Spin Class.  I made it all the way to 55 minutes in Bars & Plates, then we hit ab work!  I did a little bit and started to pinch and cramp way too much.  Obviously my insides aren't 100% healed yet!   Oh well.  I feel okay today.  I'm sure each day it will get a little bit better.   I can't sit at home anymore.  I've gained back 1 lbs since surgery.  And it will quickly turn into more if I don't get back to it.

So far I've lost 10lbs.  Which may not sound like much, but it is 2 sizes smaller on my pants.  And I keep reminding myself I'm doing this the healthy way, so I can't expect a large drop quickly.  Chubby is being replaced with muscle, muscle actually weighs more than fat.  I think I look alright.  Better, but not as good as I'd like!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I finally got approval to do the mock drug cycle.  We've already done a mock transfer, now I just need to prove to Shady45 that I can build a lining.  I'm going to the pharmacy today to try to get the prescriptions filled.  I never really know when my AF is coming.  But I think it will be in the next week or so.  I'm anxious and excited.  I only found out yesterday that we were finally moving forward, so I didn't sleep well last night!

We still can't choose our donor though.  We aren't fully accepted into the program until they see that I can build a lining.  But at least we are moving forward.  What kind of sucks though, in September I lose the majority of my staff.  I am going to be working 7 days a week again for at least 2-3 months until I can properly train and trust someone with the office.   This happens every now and again in my industry.  There is a quick turnover in staff.  I've been very lucky for the last couple of years, I've had one employee for almost 4 years.  But now he's graduated university and is hoping to move to Asia to teach English as a second language.   My other employee is in the final stages of becoming a police officer, and is hoping to be sent to the academy in September.  So I'll be left with one employee, who I can't put in charge.  I hate hiring and training new people.  Whatever when it comes to cycling I'm sure we'll find a way to get a week off to go and do it. 

I mean c'mon we waited an extra couple of years to start trying because of this business.  I think it's time we put our lives first.  Well I'm off for the day today, and I'm taking JD shopping as none of his pants fit him anymore!  I hope all my blogger friends are well!

Much Love

think thick and fluffy! Time will fly for you once you get into your mock cycle. When you get to the right thickness you then get access as I recall! Only a few more weeks.
