So, I went to the OBGYN as you know already if you read my last post, for an annual exam. I ended up expressing my concerns to her about PCOS that I was checked for previously. I told her the problems I was having now and how we wanted children and we decided for me to go back on Metformin. I was put on it once before but I quit taking it for reasons I cant really remember. Probably my insurance ended when I changed jobs.
Anyways, today I took my first dose and I am trying to live a more PCOS friendly life. I have been pretty much ignoring the fact that I have it and wondering why my body is responding so poorly to my actions! I felt a little nausea but other than that no bad side effects. I managed to make really good and healthy choices today that I was happy with. I had a weak moment about 15 minutes ago in the kitchen when I really wanted something sweet! I took one sip of a cotton candy soda that hubby got me last night and then had a sugar free chocolate pudding. I have to stay away from sugar. A little is not bad, but I need to eat whole grains and a bunch of other healthy fun stuff.
If you don't know what PCOS is just google it. Its too much to explain lol.
I tracked my calories today but really stopped tonight when I made dinner, but I had a lot left and it was a really good healthy dinner!
Greek grilled chicken salad! I made the dressing with a seasoning packet and marinated the chicken in it. I added a pita bread to it and added red onions, katamala olives, tomatoes cucumbers and feta cheese. It was so good! I added dressing to the salad too.
When I was making dinner I snacked on this combination and it was really good! I like this hummus because it was spicy instead of too garlicky.I think I am going to cancel my gym membership. Hubby has never went and we had both of us on it for like almost a year! I go but sporadically so its not really worth it, 50.00 a month just for me and Im not even going but maybe 10 days the whole month, if that! I want to start walking again and jogging. I love me some cardio. I want to be outside while its so beautiful and I can get some sun!
Well how are yall doing? Let me know what your weekend plans are!
