TGIF

Well hello there, fine folks! I am so happy it's Friday, I'm ready for a nice, relaxing weekend. What will I be doing, you ask? (You did, I heard you!) Well tomorrow morning I'll be heading to the farmers market to pick up supplies for the first week of my new diet. That means I don't get to sleep in like I'd prefer, but that's life. I can always nap while I lay out in the afternoon. Speaking of which, my tan is coming along nicely, albeit slowly since I have to wear sunscreen or I'll inevitably burn. I'm certainly not tan, but I'm a good two shades darker than when I started, and I look much healthier with a little color!

What I'm really excited about this weekend is the annual Greek Festival nearby! How I love Greek food, and how rarely I get to eat authentic Greek food! I'm going to stuff my face with loukaniko, dolmades, spanokopeta and baklava with ice cream. Oh I'm practically shaking with excitement just thinking about it. It'll be my last she-bang before starting the diet on Monday and I'm going to take full advantage. Oh yeah, and I'll probably take in some cultural experiences like watching the traditional dancing or something while I'm there too (seriously though, I'm going for the FOOD!).

I started back on the Wii Fit this week, putting in a solid 35-40 minutes on both Monday and Tuesday. Of course I was so sore on Wednesday and Thursday that I had to take a break, but I'll be back on the balance board tonight. It's amazing how hard it kicks my butt! Or maybe it's just evidence of how out of shape I am...

I'm coming up on the end of the 2ww, and for once I haven't been obsessing over it. I honestly think that's thanks to the C+B daily meditations, which I've been a lot better about doing this C than I was the last. It's almost like I'm learning to turn the worrying off, or at least turn it down, when it comes to TTC and IF. It's quite nice. Oh yeah, I broached the subject with my parents on Wednesday, and they are open to talking more about money for treatments. My dad wants me to gather as much pricing info as I can first, but looks like The Talk will be happening pretty soon. Keep your fingers crossed for me please!

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!
