So, it seems my days are off and on. Thursday I felt amazing, Friday I felt like death. Saturday I felt great. I swear I was eating good all day and felt wonderful...and then pizza was ordered. I ate 2 and a half pieces. So a couple hours goes by and me and Jacob drive up to the theatre in Waldorf to see the new Alice in Wonderland in 3D. Sadly it was sold out. :( We decided to try and get to the theatre in Lexington Park, but as soon as we got in the car I was soooooo sick to my stomach. It got hot and sweaty, but my hands were cold, and felt like I was going to throw up. My body was screaming at me that it was angry with me for eating that pizza! It took the whole drive home for it to ease up on me.
So here we are on Sunday. I feel super! Isaiah woke up around 8am and hung out with Grandpa for a bit. Then came in the room and watched Monster Jam and played with his trucks, then watched Thomas the Train. Such a good boy he was this morning letting mommy rest! So I got up around 10:30am and got the little guy fed. I decided - eh, I'll do my measurements on the Wii Fit Plus. Usually, when I do this, I just weigh in and do my body test then vow to exercise on it later....some days I do, some days I don't. Well, today I felt so good I decided to just exercise right then and there and got in 32 minutes of cardio and about 6 yoga minutes! Then I cleaned up the kitchen, and made breakfast...which btw, is soooo good. I made oatmeal with some ground flax meal, cinnamon, and a little brown sugar. Oh, and some skim milk. On the side, I made me a tiny cup of half-caf coffee. I'm so proud of myself right now for making pretty much great decisions the last couple days!

"Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common female endocrine disorders affecting approximately 5%-10% of women of reproductive age (12-45years old) and was once thought erroneously to be one of the leading causes of infertility.
The principal features are obesity, anovulation (resulting in irregular menstruation), acne, and excessive amounts or effects of androgenic (masculinizing) hormones. The symptoms and severity of the syndrome vary greatly among women. While the causes are unknown, insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity are all strongly correlated with PCOS."
So, once I read all this I suddenly became so very afraid. My biggest fear was that I would never be able to have children. I think most women when they are given this diagnosis feel the same way. It would have helped if I would have had a doctor who then continued to help me. Sadly, all I received was a letter in the mail after some tests had been done telling I had PCOS. The letter continued on by telling me to come back in a year for another check up. That was it. I'm just now getting to the point where I'm able to try and take control of it. Over the last ten years though, I was blessed with an amazing little boy who is now nearly 4 years old. He truly is my miracle baby, and I love him with every ounce of my soul.
