I could be as cuckoo as these people —
I’ve started using myfitnesspal, and holy crap I eat too many carbs (but I do hit my fiber goal most days which is good for someone who’s gluten-free), and not a lot of protein. That should get fixed.
Also I’ve noticed I tend to be only eat a little under 1200 calories a day most days. I should fix that (my BMI is around 21, I’m not underweight and don’t think I need to lose weight, I’m just not a very hungry person). Apparently on days I don’t work out I should get just under 1600. And because I’ve been doing 30 day shred + either running for 2 miles or walking 2 miles(which takes twice as long) five days a week, I should be hitting closer to 1900 calories on those days.
My goals are currently to keep up the 5 day a week workouts, and to increase the amount of protein in my diet and decrease carbs, particularly sugar, while keeping the same level of fiber. Eat more healthy food and less junk.
In reproductive news, I have a doctor’s appointment with my obgyn on the 28th. I set up the appointment to be about the polyp. I should get the RE to send the initial data to them I guess. The RE just wants too much for additional testing, which wouldn’t bother me except things like the HSG seem to fall under “things they don’t cover until my deductible is spent”, my deductible isn’t small, and the further testing they want is over a grand.
I bleed/spotted for all but two of the first 18 days of this cycle, it’s been fun. I think it’s done though, but that type of spotting is unusual for me and Dr Google says it’s a symptom of a polyp. So hopefully insurance will be like “yeah, this is a life shouldn’t suck expense, let’s cover it at a higher rate.”
I may ask if they’ll do an endometrial biopsy. Make sure my lining isn’t wonky. I don’t know, I want answers and to know if there’s something we can do so that if we try another cycle we can have decent odds. Right now I doubt another medicated cycle would be anything other than a waste of money.
So yeah, that’s where I am.
