Day 29: Great Day.

I rode my motorcycle to work today without incident. It was a beautiful day for a ride.  At work they were having a carpool event so if you came in a car with more than one person, by bus, bike, or, in my case, bad ass chopper, you got a free breakfast pass to the cafe. Now, I am not eating, but I'll use it someday.

I had pineapple strawberry juice for breakfast. Yum. I really need to mix things up a bit, eat when I get home...but I haven't. It has become usual to not have dinner juice. I can't face it because it is so late when I get around to making dinner that I don't want to eat. I don't want to eat after 8pm, it is just not good.

Anyway, I had a nice green juice for lunch...celery cucumber lemon parsley. I rode over to Nyack Main Essentials again and got a small. When I was outside having my juice a guy rolled up on his Hover-Round chair and started talking to me about my ride.  It was funny. Then another biker pulled over to look at my bike and when I went to turn to the dude in the hover chair, he was gone. There was nowhere he could have buzzed off to in such a short moment, but he was like a ninja.

In other more-than-you-want-to-know news, ever feel like you are a record stuck on the same song? Make that MP3 on repeat? Or like National Lampoons European Vacation..."Look Kids, Big Ben." Welcome to my world. My monthly adventure on the crimson highway has turned into an endless loop. I'd kinda like to get off the (seemingly) endless circle and enjoy the rest of the trip, you know? I think this where fasting meets PCOS. Oh yeah...I don't know if I ever talked about the PCOS....

I have Polycyctic Ovarian Syndrom. It is marked by an imbalence in hormones and cysts that form in my ovaries instead of eggs. I have had it since I was a teen.  I have been with my husband for 12 years and not even a scare of unplanned pregnancy.  My doctor says it hurts my chances of ever having kids, though there are drugs and "procedures" that may help. I don't know about you, but the thought of "drilling" out my organs is not something I want to put my body through. So for now, I need to lose weight, and all signs point to this helping "fix" me so I may be able to have kiddos.  But things are looking up. One of my symptoms, acanthosis nigricans, in my case dark underarm skin, is way better. In fact, it is almost normal now. The other symptoms like debilitating cramps, have not appeared this month at all. So maybe this excessively long cycle is my body's way of getting back to functional? I will give it till the weekend, then I am calling the Doc.
