Frustration, and green machine

These past couple of days have been frustrating more than usual. I know I shouldn't complain because I am very fortunate in life, but I am really trying to loose this weight before we start our IVF treatment and I feel like we are at a plateau. I know it will pass but at times it can be frustrating! This Sunday it will be four weeks since we started our lifestyle change and to tell you the truth it has not been as hard as I thought it would have been. Im a sweet tooth kind of person so I guess the hard part for me is the chocolate! I love me my sweets!! Yum!

For the past three days I have been waking up in the morning and preparing what I call my "green machine" drink! Okay so for all of you that know me I am not a big veggie fan. I mean its not the first thing I think of so its hard getting all of my veggies in an entire day. So I came up with a plan! A plan Sarah nods her head at, LOL! I decided the best and only way I could get really all my veggies at once would be to juice every morning. So I was nervous to start because some veggies are just smelly and yucky tasting so I really tried and to my surprise it is not that bad. It does take some getting used to especially the celery part. That said I feel like all that fiber is letting my bowels be best friends again, sorry if that was TMI.

So in my juice i put the following, carrots, celery, cucumber, orange, apple, banana, strawberries, and spinach. I think after a little bit I could start adding kale :)

I was super excited today when I got home and saw my shipment of my vitamins from Swanson's! Thank you April for letting me know about them. I ordered my probiotic from them as well as calcium for when I start taking the lovenox. So, I think I am set for now!

On Monday we had our appointment for the psychiatrist since we are using donor sperm. It was an hour long appointment and very informative. She loves us and actually spoke more with us off topic. She is nice and awesome! 

Now next week we have MANY appointments! I am getting super excited as time passes by!!! *happy face* <------
