Verdict is in…Opinions?
First off, rest day was a success! This morning I slept until 645a and didn’t really want to get on the treadmill. I did and went 4 miles in 40 minutes. I normally do walk/runs but jogged the whole time and ran a few minutes. It felt great! I guess I needed the rest. Next up is legs and more cardio.
Provera to start my cycle. I AM taking it this time. She said I NEED a period at least 4 times a year. Being 34 and not having a period can lead to many bone diseases etc..she scared me into it pretty much. My gma had a hysterectomy in her 40’s because of cancer. She was never on BC or anything, no periods and now has a hump back. I do NOT want to be like that. So I need to have my period and hormones I guess.
She told me I undereat and over exercise. BS…that’s what I think about that. I think they are so used to seeing big fat women they don’t know any different. My BMI is on the lower end so i’m unhealthy? If I ate fast food everyday and didn’t exercise then what’s wrong with me? That sort of pissed me off but I do understand for my health I NEED to have a period. Then she looked at my chart from 2006 when I didn’t have a period and I weighed 132 lbs. Take that biatch…it’s NOT my weight.
The place where i’m swollen sometimes and tender is my colon. I’m not constipated so my next step is to set up an appt with a gastro doc. Uterus is small but doesn’t have cysts or anything. I felt like I was in there forever. Oh and i’m not pregnant 😉 They had to check that before I could start taking the Provera. I should have a period in 2.5 weeks and it’s going to be a doozy!!!! I can’t wait!! (sarcasm)
So I can hope that maybe this will kickstart my cycles again or I can go on birth control. That or I can keep taking Provera to make sure that I have 4 cycles a year.
I’ll fess up and admit I don’t take BC because I don’t want to gain weight. Or at least that’s why i’ve never been on it. I used to be an Ephedra junkie and didn’t care if I died because then at least I would be a skeleton and finally thin. I know, the stupid things we do and say when we’re younger. Now i’m at the point where I just want to be healthy and take care of my body.
So what BC do you take? I’m so confused. I don’t know what to do. Go on BC, Use Provera when needed, get a bone disease, get fat and see if it comes back?
On a happier note I found this while cleaning. I’ll post some pics of the after paint job once I get the house organized. It feels and looks much better 😀
