Evening Everyone!!!

Hope everyone is doing well!!! Didn't get much done around the house today....let me rephrase that...Didn't anything done around the house today LOL!!! I woke up early to take my temperature for my FAM charting. Not sure if anyone knows what that is...It's basically a way for me to keep up with my fertility and menstrual cycles since I don't always know when I am going to have one. This is the first month since the start of my journey where I think I've missed it, or it's incredibly late. I had one day where I thought it was going to start because of obvious signs, but after that more. I've been reading a fertility book where it discusses FAM and how once you've got the charting down pat you can use it as a means of contraceptive, tracking fertility to get pregnant, or to chart your cycles so you know when you are ovulating and when you will have a cycle. I found a free app on my phone so it's been helpful so I don't have to use a paper chart.

DH and I went this afternoon to go look at the farmer's market to see what they have....We get there and the place is empty!! No one was there!! The sign says it's open year round, so I don't know what is going on, if they're moving it or if they are just doing some up keep of the grounds this weekend. I was kinda miffed about it because I really wanted to see if there were any fresh figs around. We ended up going to Sam's Club to grab a few things that they didn't have in when I did my shopping earlier in the week, then had to go to the local grocery store to get a few more things I didn't want to buy in bulk. I'm going to be making us some healthy stuffed peppers tonight...This will be my first time ever making stuffed peppers so I hope they turn out ok Today was work out #5 for the week for me. My body was really telling me it was pooped. I ended up only doing 20 minutes of HIIT and 30 minutes of yoga. Which I will say is better than nothing so I'm not going to complain. I've been hitting it HARD this week so I hope to see a loss for my weigh in tomorrow

Jane Great job at breaking the nibbling habit! You ARE STRONG!!

Betsy Thank you so much for the encouragement! I'm hoping within the next couple of months I'll be able to comfortably wear those size 20's!! And I know what you mean about time slipping from you. That's how I feel today. My plan was to get this house in order so that next weekend I can tackle the crap in my closet and throw out a lot of junk! Well it's 6:30 now and I'm pooped from working out lol...I guess I'll just try again tomorrow!

Silent You are NOT a fraud!!! From the way it sounds your weight loss was due to your efforts of trying to lose. Not at the chance that you may have diabetes. Stay strong!! If it turns out you do have diabetes then you will just have to watch everything even harder...No point in getting upset until you really know what's going on. We all love you here and wish the best for you!! <3

Ubee Thanks for the love! It's ok if you don't have a huge social life, I don't either, and I'm perfectly fine with it. And I can assure you no one is rolling their eyes when you talk here. We all love ya!! I am really surprised with myself with all of the exercise. I don't know what has gotten into me. I guess my desire to lose the weight and get healthy and the motivation I have all around me with you guys, my IG, my friend who is a Beach Body Coach...Nothing but positive vibes all around me. I really think I'm going to knock it out of the park this time!!

I am pretty excited about tomorrow..DH suggested that we go to the beach for a walk!!! He is very deficient in vitamin D because of his hormone problems so he really needs to get as much natural vitamin D as possible. Now that the weather is beginning to be nice, that's when we really try to get out in the sun and go for walks. I'm hoping he wants to do this more regularly. His eating has gotten better, but it isn't perfect. I'm noticing that he has lost a little weight probably. Every time I tell him it looks like his belly isn't as bloated he doesn't really get upset, but he doesn't believe me. I told him he should get on the scale just to see, but he won't, and I'm not going to force him. I'm sure if I keep eating the way I am, that he'll start to eat even better. He practically eats everything I cook for dinner now, but will still have his mashed potatoes and pasta for some meals that I wouldn't want that, like spaghetti or for instance tonight with our stuffed peppers. I think it's ok, I just wish he would look at his portion size with that kind of stuff. His doctor told him several months back he was pre-diabetic but it almost seems like he isn't going to care until it's too late. But at least he's doing a lot better than he was.

Anyway, I'm going to stop gabbing! LOL!! I hope everyone has an awesome evening!!! Tomorrow is my weekly weigh in and I'm hoping for a good loss!!
