This and that-

I haven't been feeling well lately. I'm constantly exhausted, even on the nights where I get enough sleep. I think part of it is that I've been slacking on taking my vitamins. That wouldn't be a big problem, except my diet isn't the most well rounded. I hardly ever get enough protein... or iron, consequently. I try my best to round out my diet, but this is the same problem I had when I was a vegetarian. I'm just not good at eating the things I need... like protein/iron rich foods.

The multivitamins I bought were making me nauseous, so I've bought new ones and started taking all my other good stuff too (extra folic acid for my MTHFR, Inositol for my PCOS) I'm still taking all my regular goodies though, like my Vit D, low dose aspirin, and Metformin. Hopefully taking the multivitamin will help out with feeling so fatigued. I'm going to call my doctor if it keeps up.

I'm still working out like crazy. I do my jog 3x's a week (I increased my speed by half a mile per hour for the last half of my jog), which consists of 2 miles jogging and half a mile walking; then I do a post-run yoga workout to loosen my muscles. I recently increased my plank pose by another 30 seconds, and my arms are feeling it today, ugh. I walk one mile 4 days a week on top of that. I'm eating as many calories as I need to with my workout, with the goal of losing weight. So that should all be good. I have no idea how my weight loss is going this month though because my scale broke... I'll buy a new one before my next weigh in. I don't know if I really want to know. I've been eating pretty bad lately.

I'm still having trouble with my BCPs. These new ones give me a bleed every other week, versus the last few brands that just gave me a 2-2.5wk long bleed. I think I prefer these ones, but a brand that actually worked without breakthrough bleeding would be ideal. I'm so done with these things, they are driving me nuts.

It's going to be a busy next few weeks. The holidays are coming up fast, I still can't believe it's nearly Thanksgiving (less than 2 weeks, yikes). I have a lot of planning/prep to do for Christmas week. I have no idea where the time has gone, but it's really flying by now.

Speaking of which, I made this wreath today because I couldn't help myself. I'm not sure if I'm going to leave it as is or add a bow to it. I kind of like it the way it is. I have a few little projects planned, and a bunch of recipes to try out for my gifts (I always make a box of fudge with other goodies for our siblings/parents). So much to do though.

I've planned out V's birthday party (It's going to be a "Look whoo's turning one!" owl themed), but we still haven't figured out where we're having it. Our house isn't the best location, it's not really big enough for both our families and parking is awful. So we're calling around and trying to see what our options are... we had called around a couple months ago, and thought we found a place, only to learn we wouldn't be able to rent it after all. It was disappointing. So, on with our search.

Nice job working out!! I hope the new vitamins help you feel more energized. Gah about the bcp! Did your OB have any explanation for the breakthrough bleeding? What a pain!

Awww, first birthday party's are so special! I hope you guys figure out a location :)

No, my OB/GYN's office just keeps telling me to stick with it for 3 months, and if it doesn't work to try another brand. It is beyond frustrating! They decided to try a higher estrogen pill this time to see if that helped... but obviously, it didn't. Maybe this month will be better? The last two months of it were the same (1wk on, 1wk off), but maybe third times a charm?

Love your wreath.

These days the thought of taking my vitamins starts my mouth to water and the nausea hits. I still have to take them today too. Ugh!

Hope you are soon feeling better.
