Operation Washboard

So I woke up on Friday morning with AF finally, went to the doctor for my baseline and of course I have 2 cysts, one on each ovary. I had prepared myself for that but it still hurt. Now I am back on BCP for the month. Boo.

I need something to occupy these next four weeks so today is Day 1 of Operation Washboard. Now I am not expecting washboard abs in 4 weeks but I need some improvement in that area. I am blaming it on all the hormones I have taken but I seem to have accumulated several extra pounds in that area only the past few months. I am in a wedding in October and have a 8 day beach vacation planned for November so I would like to get back to my old body.

I have IBS so the plan is a gluten free and dairy free diet (mostly anyway, I can't give up cheese and the occasional pasta splurge) and I am going to start working out again. I will keep you updated on how it is going!

  1. Good plan! I, too, feel like the pounds I've put on while taking fertility drugs are clustered around my waist. Until this last year I prided myself on my flat abs--now, I look at them and wonder if they will ever go back.

    Since I'm in the 2ww of my first IVF cycle, The only exercise I do is walking every other day. So lame. My muscles feel like they are atrophying :(

    All for a good cause....
