It’s been a while since I made any kind of update. I’ve been in a bad rut lately. The only thing I kind of stuck with in October was biking to and from work a few times a week. The rainy weather doesn’t help much. Otherwise my diet and exercise goals flew out the window along with any kind of motivation I may have started out with.
I did get to go see a new doctor for my annual physical exam who I found via a local PCOS support group. He was great, took his time to explain PCOS and insulin resistance to my husband and I, and he prescribed some new medicines. I started low on one and had to slowly increase the dose over three weeks. I did get sick from it when I increased it twice but so far it seems to be working. I had bloodwork done and I no longer seem to be anemic for the time being but I have to continue taking iron supplements until I see the hematology specialist again in December. I’ve lost a few more pounds with the new medicine which is great but I know I could kick it up a notch if I really watch what I eat and get out to exercise.
Now for a more fun update… Hubby turned 26 a few weeks ago and we finally got around to celebrating with a few friends. This weekend we went paintballing. I didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did. The weather was great for the day and it wasn’t terribly crowded. I got shot a good number of times and am still hurting. Maybe I’m just too old for this haha. It was fun being active and hanging out with friends outside of the apartment. We are definitely looking forward to going again soon. Up next is my birthday in less than 8 days so I need to figure out what I want to do.
Any fun suggestions?
