Okay, maybe not extreme, but...
It has been a world wind of a week. Last Friday was my last day at my old job and I've had fun relaxing. I have another week off before I start work again. I am going to visit family and then go on a “pamper your inner-mama vacation’.
In case you don't know what a “pamper your inner mama vacation” is, it’s a vacation designed to spoil my inner mama. I know she is in there even though I don't have a physical child-yet. Over the past two years, I've been working soo hard and I've felt soo stressed that I need at least a week to be totally self-indulgent. I need time to get mentally and physically prepared for my new job and my fall IVF cycle.
Ironically, last Friday was also the day of my yearly gyno exam-fun! I told my doctor that after all my IUIs and exams with Dr. Feelgood, the awkwardness of the pap smear experience was no longer even a blip on my radar. She laughed a little at my silly joke before she delivered some not so good news.
She said that I should try to lose some weight. In fact, she recommended that I use my time off from the TTC to lose 15lbs.
15lbs is nothing to sneeze at but I am going to give it a try. She explained to me that I would have a smoother pregnancy if I lost the weight. So far this week I have worked out every single day and I even started doing yoga. That sounds promising, sort of.
Well, I think it would be for the average person. But for me, I always get into a health kick before I fall off of the wagon. I have to admit that it is one of my vicious cycles. I am just hope that this time I can keep up my routine. I mean, the stakes are high enough, right?
Anyhoo, I am also planning to give The Egg Drop Post a total complete facelift over the next month. I am going to move over to wordpress—where a lot of the cool kids are-- and change the layout and visuals. It should be exciting, if I can figure it all al out. I am not the most technologically savvy person out there, but my reading comprehension is decent. Please bear with me as I work the kinks out with this blog and come into my true self.
As you can see, I have a few projects planned to keep my mind off of the TTC. The only problem is that they all revolve around the TTC-- updating this blog and losing weight.
We’ll see how I do with my extreme makeover. As always, I will keep you posted.
