New Start of Old Routines

Oh my! It's only been a month or so since I stopped taking Whey Protein, but I forgot how horrible it can taste. Today, I reintroduced my body to that chunky drink (the powder added to H2O). I really need to find a better (well, at least a different) way to mix the powder. I may try milk. The reason I am adding Whey Protein back into my diet is because I am not sure if I want to jump straight into a FET in December (when we think we may get to start trying again). DH & I have discussed trying IUI again. I am not sure what our RE may think or suggest, but I am hoping to talk to her about that idea soon.
This evening, DH & I went on a long walk with the puppies. It was great; it felt good to be out again. DH & I started walking at the end of last school year and continued until ER this summer. This is the first time I have been able and have wanted to get back out. This is when I also indulged myself in my Whey beverage. Yum! : ) I felt accomplished when I returned home. In the coming months, I hope to walk as much as I can. I may even visit the wonderful Recreation Center off and on. I am sure losing a few pounds definitely wouldn't hurt my ego and I am sure it could help out in our TTC adventure.
Last night, I started my Metformin again. I had stopped taking it about a week before my D & C. Normally, when you start Metformin back-up you are to do so gradually. I on the other hand went straight back to taking all 3 of my pills (1500mg)! I have never had side effects from them. I am one of the lucky ones.
So, in the matter of one weekend I have added a few old routines back into my daily life. It feels good to be doing 'something.' In the coming weeks, I am going to start taking my extra folic acid and prenatal again. Until then, I am going to work on sticking to my walking and trying to keep my Whey down.
