Not This Time

My temps dropped on Saturday morning. Sunday morning AF showed up. I'm pretty bummed, but I'm trying to stay upbeat. I know of other things I can still do to tweak what's going on. One good thing, my temp dropped a day before I got AF, which is what it's supposed to do.

I'm retrenching and more fully comitting to the following where I tend to slide every now and then:
  • No coffee
  • No dairy
  • No wheat

I'm also doing a fast with only eating kitchari and drinking tea for the next few days. They say if you are going to do any fasting that it's best to do in the beginning of your cycle. If you read the article, you can see that it talks about healing your digestive tract. After this, I'm going to try to more fully follow the TCM diet I know I should be on which is no cold food. I'm going to eat a lot of soups and other meals must always have lightly cooked vegetables. I'm also going to try to find time to go down to the juice place I like and pick up a bunch of wheatgrass shots to freeze. I want to have one every day. I will continue the good work I'm doing on my yoga practice. Of course, I'm giving my body a rest from practice for the next few days. I'll keep you updated as we go.

Sorry this wasn't your month. You sound like you've got quite the health plan, though, which can only help in the long run (at the very least, you probably won't get a cold for a while, lol!). Hope that BFP is right around the corner for you...

So sorry AF found you. :( Sounds like you are doing some good things though.

I do have a question, though. Does the no dairy, coffee, or wheat help fertility? My sister has been having problems and I will pass that along to her if so.
