Hormonal Update #2 (100th blog post!)

Another month, another cycle. This makes me pretty happy! It makes the lack of workouts and effort into resolving my disordered eating feel rewarding. It motivates me and makes me want to plan! I keep thinking about if I get just one more cycle I can slowing return to being my more than average active self, track my cycle to determine my fertile days and just feel like a woman.

I am proposing that I start off with going for a 45 minute walk 3 times a week with short (15 minute) body weight training sessions 3 – 4 times a week. Since I am working toward walking at least 1-2 times a week now and slowly getting back into yoga, it seems like a reasonable strategy. I of course will continue progressing with yoga because that activity is incredibly beneficial for me.

I will likely move at a pace of changing things up after each cycle. Not just because in my head it sounds smart to only make changes if my cycle is still occurring, but the specialist said that would be a good indicator that my body is doing OK within the first year of my cycle being back. Although, I have a lot of hesitation in even saying all of this because what if I do not get my cycle in February and feel like I have jinxed myself. I am doing my best and cannot regret that.
