What a fabulous end to July!

So, today I got a smiley face (yay for ovulating soon)!! After wondering if I actually ovulated on cd9 instead- thanks to FF giving me some solid CH's I'm pleased to announce the u/s tech was correct, I should O in the next day or two I hope. I've had some pretty bad cramping, the same that happened last clomid cycle when I ovulated so that's great news! Especially since we leave to go camping in a few days, I was hoping to not have to worry about TI! :)
So that gets a fatty grin from me :o)

THEN, we leave early Tues morning to go camping. The campground is by this gorgeous boating lake, but isn't on the lake though, so its more private :) Love it! Then we come back on Thursday evening, and I leave for Cali with my mom on Friday to go see my sister/fam and new nephew!!

And from there to the Bay Area to see my lovely awesome girl mdluv and friends from school etc..... I can't fucking wait!!

I'm hoping to hit up these places....

I'm an aunt again!

So my baby sister just had her little boy this morning! This is my second nephew (her older son is 2 1/2). The delivery went well (and quick) and everyone is doing wonderfully! They are released from the hospital tomorrow morning :)

Here are a few cell phone pictures she sent me! I lobe him :)

I just want you all to know...

That I read your blogs and really enjoy them (those that I have access to anyway). For some reason I have the hardest time getting my Google account to work so I can leave comments. I try almost every time with no success :(

I wanted to say this because I like catching up on you all, but I just wanted to let you know that's why I don't comment on yours!

The new me

Ok, so I have lost 3lbs since I started my new me program! I've been eating better, doing my workouts (even when I'm pissed I have to go) lol DH has helped me immensely, he has gone with me each time, he has helped me and pushed me when lifting weights. I love him :)

I know this summer is shot in terms of hitting my goal, but hopefully by the New Year, I can be the new me ::insert cheesiness::

I feel better already.

I knew she was coming- the reservations had already been made. Though I had high hopes in the beginning clomid would work for me, towards the end I just started losing hope. I will say though my initial temp drop stung pretty badly. I kind cried a lot yesterday. Went through stages..... but then I woke up today and was ready to move on. I'll call the RE today, set up my appt for cd3 and we might bump it up to 100mg this go around.

I talked to DH last night about if he wanted to combine IUI with it, he said not yet. I can understand because this would put us in a tight spot to do that. With him only working 2.5 days a week (he's a full time student) I'm pretty much the breadwinner, and it would put a strain on us. We decided on 3 cycles on clomid, then we'll bump it up to IUI if no luck. Though I personally would like to do 2 cycles and move on, for now I will respect his wishes and go with 3. Who knows, maybe this will work- and if not, then it gives us that much time to save up!

The new me....

Alrighty... where do I start. Vegas was a blast! We ate and drank ourselves into a coma it was fucking awesome! I told myself I would allow an eat/drink anything I want on vacay, including the volcano lava brownie with ice cream and fudge, as long as when I got back, I started my "new me". So here I am. I told DH what I was looking for (in terms of weight loss, toning etc) and he devised a plan for me. When he was in Iraq, in his down time he studied up on weight lifting/workouts, so he's pretty good at this sort of thing :)

The Plan:

Weeks 1-3
Monday's- off

Tuesday's 40 mins of cardio- Heart rate (HR) 125-135
Machine Bench Press 2 sets of 12- 50 lbs
Leg Press/Squat 2 sets of 12- 40 lbs
Seated row/lat pull-downs 2 sets of 12- 70 lbs

Wednesday's- 45 mins of cardio- HR 125-135

Thursday's- Off

Friday's 60 mins of cardio HR 125-135, and same weights as Monday

Saturday's- 60 mins of cardio HR 125-135

So we got back into town late Sunday evening, and Monday evening we were at the gym. It feels great! I have been watching what I eat, my portion sizes and working out doing cardio and free weights/nautilus. I've been sore this entire week, but so worth it! I haven't even had any alcoholic beverages since we got back...and this is a rarity! lol

So, the dreaded stats. I'm laying this out to you ladies to keep me motivated and on goal. Kinda as in if I tell you and have no updates, then I suck!

Current Stats:
Height: 5'8
Weight: 176
Build: Med, and I do still have quite a bit of muscle (it's just buried under fat currently)

Goal Stats:

Height: (hopefully it stays the same- buahahahahaha)
Weight: 145
Build: Should stay the same, but I'm hoping to let the muscles make an appearance

I know I can do this, I just need to set my mind to it! Wish me luck ;)
