I made my first Dr's appointment in five years. I will be getting blood tests and hormone evaluations done with my next cycle. I finally weighed in and measured the results of the rapid weight gain and lack of focus. Now to make two more Dr. apts. and maybe a dental apt.

Stress at home has been way too high. We are both working, but I have a rolling lay off week once a month that makes budgetting go to crap every time we catch up. The lay offs at work also mean an exponential increase in job responsibilities to provide coverage in the quality department during our ISO audit. And of course doing three jobs for one pay that is too low for it's title sucks. But I am thankful to be working and gaining the experience.

Stress is killing any focus on my marraige too. We communicate well, but we have no intimate time and I sadly enough don't seem to want it now. Hopefully a new healthy focus will make those ideas come back around.

Here's to starting over and making it count!

    It's really sad that this is reality for so many people. I hope that you still manage to kiss your husband, even in the high stress times. I find that helps to get through them (and I know you read my blogs last week about the stress).

    I find that vegan meals helps to stretch out the budget and can be tasty too while still getting the protein. (I hate tofu, but have come to love beans of all colors).
