{insert title here}

Yeah, titles are hard.

I'm pretty content with how the progress reports look.  I keep forgetting to update my weight on the FitBit, but its done now. I was down 1.6 lbs at the meeting last night.  Party!  I was up a bit last week, but I'm sure it was from PMS.

Rosa the leader always gives us something to work toward each week.  This week's will be pretty easy, since Randy left today for Hamvention in Dayton, OH and won't be home until Sunday.  She suggested having 1 meal with meat of the 2 legged variety (chicken / turkey / ostrich / goose / etc) and 1 meal completely meatless.  I'm sure I can do that.  I wonder if my Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sub from Subway tonight counts??  Heehee, I'm sure it does, but I won't count it.

 Pepino Melon.
Kinda pricey at $2 for this little thing.
Tasted like a combination of honeydew melon & cucumber. 

I have a confession to make.  I'm trying to get a jumpstart to start the scale on the downward spiral again.  Someone I follow on Instagram is a distributor for this stuff called It Works so I thought I'd give it a try.  So far....not a damn thing.  I'm in my second month so its not like I just started.

She posted testimonies of people doing the 2 days cleanse (not shown in the pictures) and losing 4-8 lbs.  It didn't change my 'movements' any and the stuff was really freakin' nasty tasting.  

The Greens are pretty disgusting, too.  I'm not even exactly sure what this stuff is for.  Here's what the website says about it...With multiple servings of fruits and vegetables and a blend of 38 herbs and nutrient-rich superfoods, Greens provides naturally occurring, bioavailable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and enzymes to give your already well-balanced diet a nutritional boost. It’s maximum support for your best health, all in a new delicious berry flavor.  I tried drinking it the first couple days and just no. So I've been mixing it with my oatmeal and trying to cover it up with PB2 (which actually makes sort of a tolerable PB&J flavor) or fresh strawberries.

The Wraps don't seem to be doing anything, either.  They're a bit smaller than what I'd like and the smell is kind of pungent with eucalyptus and other stuff.  But not too bad and it's sort of tingly and cool while on.  Other than that - nada.

So my second shipment just came last Saturday  I got the bare minimum, since I had to sign up for 3 auto shipments to get the distributor's sale price for the items.  I just tried the defining gel for the first time tonight on my thighs.  It smells the same as the wraps, but it doesn't linger too long. So we'll see how this goes.  

I emailed the distributor and asked her what I could be doing wrong and she's suggesting stuff like "compare measurements & pictures", etc. since I took before photos.  Well, if my clothes aren't fitting any differently, I don't think the tape measure or photos will tell me anything different. 

Oh, I have a TMI update on my female issues (part 1 here).  Besides the fact I still haven't stopped bleeding since IUD came out tonight!  It was installed (inserted?) on March 16 and I went in a month later for an ultrasound to ensure it was still in place.  It was.  I noticed a couple days ago I was cramping some.  Normally my cramps are in my lower back but they were in the front, lower belly this time.  I assumed it was just things getting settled still.  So when I got in the shower after Zumba tonight (I got on Monday & Wednesday) I rinsed all areas like I always do before washing, and felt a little feeling (I don't know how to explain, it was more of a mental thought and not a physical feeling) to take the shower hose and spray down there again.  A HUGE clot of grossness came out - I mean like golfball sized!  So I directed the water to wash it to the drain and went to push it around so it would go thru the holes, but I felt something in it.  Yes - gross I know, but I did pick it up.  Sure enough - the IUD was embedded in this mass of tissue.  Awesome.   So I'll be calling the doc tomorrow to see what the next plan of action should be.  I honestly wished I'd gone right with doing a hysterectomy back in the beginning of this fibroid adventure.  Maybe it'll still be an option.    

I'm still loving Zumba, tho.  The instructor, Nancy, also does what she calls Brazilly - sort of Samba / bellydance and booty work.  So she changes it up and keeps us on our toes! 

But now it's late and I'm going to enjoy hogging the entire bed tonight - unless the cats get to it first!  Later!

#SnS  (I need to change this - this is a code I made up that lets Twitterfeed know to post this onto Twitter for me)  My other blogs I have a signature and that's what TF goes by.  Just need to make an update! Soon, but not tonight.  I'm tired!
