I'm kind of in a funk today. Today's my three-week weigh in, but my scale is broken so I'm not sure how much I've lost. And depending on where the scale is placed, I haven't lost any this week. So I'm feeling sorry for myself. I'm also feeling sorry for myself because I can't eat chocolate chip cookies right now (I'm watching a cookie episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay. I'm not sure why I'm torturing myself like this). Oh, and word to the wise: if you recorded this week's season finale of House and haven't watched it yet, don't watch it if you are currently in a funk. Not a good idea.
Yesterday was a great day, though. It was my husband's day off, so we took a very long walk on this little island in Richmond called Belle Isle. It was the first time we went there and it was really great, and Sophie LOVED it! It's right in the city, but there's wildlife, swimming, rock climbing, and tons of trails. We walked for two straight hours and it seemed like hardly any time at all. I brought my camera, so here are some of the highlights:
Here is me carrying Sophie. See, the bridge to the island is a suspension bridge and something about it scared her (and scared me for her). She was refusing to walk and I was trying to pull her. From past experience, I know that when I pull her, we run the risk of her sliding out of her collar. Well, I don't know if you can see it in this picture, but there was just enough room below the bottom railing for a little Sophie to fall through. So... I picked her up and carried her until...
...my husband thought that was silly and took over.
Here's a view of the city (way in the distance) from Belle Isle.
I wasn't quick enough with the camera, but this is Sophie trying to chase a frog. It was kind of pathetic, though, because we had to practically put her nose right up to the frog for her to even realize it was there.
Here she is exploring. She's not one for water, so there's not really a risk of her jumping in.
Here's how we spent most of our afternoon - walking. Sophie LOVES walks, so it's safe to say it was one of the best days of her little doggie life.
We're about to leave for another walk right now, as a matter of fact, except for one small problem. Sophie is still sleeping. In fact, until a minute ago, she was lying in our bed.
I hope my mood gets better. Perhaps this is hormones? It is cycle day 25, so maybe, just maybe, I ovulated this cycle and now I'm having hormone shifts I don't normally experience. Who knows. But at least it's optimistic that I'm taking my bad mood as a possible good sign, right?!
By the way, I just charted my BBT's for this cycle so far, and I know I'm not a BBT expert and I also know that PPVI doesn't even advocate the use of temps, but I think mine might show that I may not have ovulated. There was a slight spike on the morning after my last peak day (day 14), but other than that, this isn't how any of those sample charts look at all! Isn't it supposed to be all low, then spike, then all consistently high? Mine just looks like a bumpy diagonal line. Okay, I just found a way to save it as a picture so here it is:
Okay, I am not worried about this and I don't want to overanalyze it, but I'm bored and curious. So, that being said, anyone know what this may mean?
