Dropped some Poundage and the rest is all over the place

Here are three pictures showing some weight loss. Last time on my blog I believe I was still maybe 235ish? Now I am 202lbs some days 205 as shown in these pictures. I CANNOT wait to break the 200's! I need to get back into the serious workout grind. I've just been eating a lot better than before and watching my portions. I'm way more active with my job and on weekends. So I think that helped with the last 30 lbs.

This month for supplements I've used:
-Vitamin D
-Folic Acid
-Maca Root

Today I am on Cycle Day 27 of a normal 31-34 day cycle. BFN this AM. I actually called in sick for the first time in a very, very long time! I was over-exhausted and for the past several days I've had terrible stomach/bathroom problems and did not want to have that at work. I'm pretty positive THIS CYLCLE is not THE CYCLE... but I'm hopeful this is MY YEAR. I am praying for hope and faith.

In less than 4 months I will be 30. I have a lot I want to accomplish before I hit 30.

-Be under 190
-Start a hobby I've always wanted to do in my 20s
-Dress sexier on my dates with my DH

and so many more.

For inspiration I follow some amazing PCOS fitness ladies on Instagram who lift me up and inspire me to want to change. I know it is possible. Thank you to all who are still out there thinking of me, praying and rooting for me and encouraging me. It means the world!

I've Come out of hiding!

And I'm back!

From my TTC break :) We didn't get pregnant. OBVIOUSLY.

We have had tons of ups and downs. It has been a very emotional several months. I've been busy out of my mind. I've traveled. Worked and worked and worked overtime. I've dealt with an awful and toxic ex, and visitation battles, I've dealt with finding a long lost sibling and having him back in my life. I've managed to take on a lot more work at my job and DH is working more hours. I've managed to somehow make it through all of the holidays. We've had some amazing memories these past few months, and have also surpassed some of the hardest struggles yet.

DH and I survived.
The Love Dare and prayer has saved us.

Now we are here, and ready to start trying for a family again. We are focused and stronger than ever. We have a plan set, goals, and finances set. Most importantly- we are emotionally ready for the struggle ahead. We know the road will be bumpy. We are ready to carry each other and hold each other up through the struggles. Here's to another year TTC.
