Well, I’m proud to say that I only got slightly squeamish about the Ovidrel injection and was still able to stick myself. Tim was on standby, but I think he was relieved that he didn’t have to get involved.
Based on what the reproductive endocrinologist said, I should be ovulating by now. So we have, ahem, a busy weekend ahead of us.
Despite what I said in my Thursday post, I haven’t broken on the sugar front yet. Despite the lack of chocolate protein bars, the cravings just haven’t really been there. I’m surprised, but I’m sure they’re coming soon.
Tim has been on standby, ready to run out and get me whatever I want. I think he’s just excited because he’s been having cravings for Cinnabon for the last three or so weeks.
I know this because he kept offering to go get me some. And when I turned him down, he’d just say “Ciiiiinnnabon.” Which, sadly, is a valid argument to me.
He could just go out and get it for himself, of course. But he doesn’t like eating alone, and I politely told him that if he brings it back here, I’ll have to murder him. I assured him it was nothing personal.
The idea of chocolate is appealing, but I don’t feel any physical cravings. I don’t see the point in breaking until that happens. Which will probably be once I get pregnant or until PMS hits. Whichever is applicable.
Meanwhile, we’re just planning what I’ll get. Cinnabon, obviously. Also, a huge slice of chocolate cake from Cheesecake Factory. Maybe some Cold Stone Creamery.
Yes, I’ll get horribly sick, but if you’re gonna do something, do it right.
Plus the idea of all that sugar kind of hurts my stomach, which further keeps the streak alive. (Seven months and 20 days, but who’s counting?)
It also helps that it’s demonically hot here. Wednesday it was 106: Thursday was 113; Friday 115. Today it’s scheduled to get up to 113.
Those kind of temperatures cut down on the desire to go outdoors. Though when Tim reads this, I’m guessing he’ll assure me that he’ll go out and bring it back. Because he’s… supportive(?) like that.
For now, the main side effect of quitting the protein bars is that I have nothing to eat for breakfast. Because EVERYTHING HAS SO MUCH SUGAR.
My protein bars have three grams of sugar and four of sugar alcohol, which is apparently treated the same by your body. Tim’s Nutri-Grain bars have 11 grams; and even his relatively healthy cereals have 13 grams and 19 grams. Blech.
We may have to get some eggs, but my cholesterol is a little high. Windy City Girl gave me an article saying you can have up to seven eggs a week without affecting cholesterol much. But one egg a day doesn’t sound very filling.
At least if I get pregnant I’ll be too sick for breakfast. We can just rely on crackers and maybe applesauce or something.
Man, my goals are small.
Does anyone want to run all our errands so I can stay inside? Anyone have some low-sugar breakfast suggestions? (Oatmeal’s texture doesn’t work for me.)
