...is so weird for me. I was wondering if I was getting a bit bloated so I checked my period tracker and discovered that I'm 7DPO. Normally I'd be over analysing every little "symptom" and probably peeing on a stick by now! My best friend has been talking about her little boy who was born the day after my due date a lot recently and I'm definitely still clucky but it doesn't hurt like it used to.
I know now that I'm definitely doing the right thing by focusing on my health both mental and physical before getting pregnant. My concern is that I have always been looking for happiness in outside events, my relationship, my wedding, a BFP. What would've happened if I'd gotten a BFP in the frame of mind I was in before I started this challenge? A BFP wouldn't have made me a stronger person. I would've been happy in being pregnant but I still would've been sad within myself. Learning to cope with that inner sadness, address it, become stronger and happier as a person is something that will still take time after this challenge has finished but I am absolutely on the right path for me.
In other news, we had yet another Christmas dinner tonight, only two more to go this week! I'm hoping it doesn't affect my weigh-in tomorrow too much, I had lots of salad but I also had some of the absolutely divine French onion potatoes that my husband's aunt makes.
I'm ready to go hard this last week and I'm still aiming for my goal of being "overweight" at the end of this challenge! My friend weighed in today and she's lost half a kilo this week which is great considering she hasn't made any changes to her diet, all she's doing is the Zumba with me after work three nights a week!
