After dropping major hints my h finally went to the shop to get me wine and one if those popping candy dairy milks which I'm now addicted to!
anyone else having a small sherry?

Rum here - after a session of Ripped in 30 to justify it....
25/04/2013 at 21:13
Did you do ripped in 30 or just sit watching it with a rum ? ! My h has out the football on since Iv Dared come on my phone
25/04/2013 at 21:16
Haha if only I had thought of that!! No, day 2 completed need to do another couple this week and boy can I feel it, this one is so much more exercise on the thighs!! My H is burning stuff in the garden and digging up the roots of an old bush .... well I think he has stopped now that it is dark.
25/04/2013 at 21:18
I wish my h would go out and dig up the garden, I wouldn't have to endure football! He doesn't even support Chelsea yet he's sat giving a running commentary! Is it jillian Micheals on ripped?
25/04/2013 at 21:20
If I could be bothered to move I might have a drink, although I am feeling quite good with myself (and a bit knackered!) for just doing the 30 day shred for the first time in ages!
25/04/2013 at 21:22
Yes it is another Jillian DVD - think I might prefer it to the shred but it might just be because it is a change! I think my H will just watch the highlights
DD - how's things. did you get medication for the thyroid issue?
25/04/2013 at 21:24
Was just going to ask about the thyroid are u on meds?
Alsi heart nurse absolutely loves jillian!!! I hate her, she's evil but I think hn idolises her as she lost 4st just shredding!!!!!!
25/04/2013 at 21:26
Go on the you've twisted my arm. Glass of red for me please.
Luckily my H doesn't like football.............I get to endure many repeats of Top Gear on Dave.

Thanks for askng both - yes I went to the doc this morning, I was prescribed carbimazole and told to go back for beta blockers in another week if the palpitations etc don't stop (I really don't like the idea of taking them so will leave that until after my holiday!). She's also referred me to a specialist at the hospital, although the appointment could be up to 6 weeks away, and I've got to go back to see her in a month (might go back to see the GP I usually see for my ADs instead though) and also another blood test in about 5-6 weeks to see how my thyroid levels are doing. She couldn't help with my TTC question though, so I've got to wait to see the specialist.
Wish I could lose 4st shredding! I've only got 10 days until I go away so I just want to tone up a bit before I bare my flesh in a bikini!

What's the Ttc question? I think a day break presenter kate(???) had thyroid problems, finally realised it was thyroid and started treatment and then shortly after got a bfp. I know nothing about Ttc and thyroid though but maybe ask on dw as I think there's a few over there with thyroid problems x
25/04/2013 at 22:07
From what I've read it says you shouldn't be on the tablets I've been given if you're pg, and not really recommended to ttc, the GP I saw today wasn't sure and said to speak to the specialist (although I thought she said you could bf on them, and it says in the leaflet that you can't as it passes to the BM). I'll have look to see what I can find about Kate Garraway to see what it says.
I asked on DW last week about it which is where I found out most of the info, just have to wait and see I guess, and if we can't then just have to accept C will be a O&O
25/04/2013 at 22:14
Aw don't think like that yet, see what your bloods do and speak to someone more in the know than your gp
25/04/2013 at 22:23
evening ladies, few wines here hic
DD, my sis has a thyroid problem and just had a baby boy, she's on thyroxine though, does that make her under- or over-active, I can never remember. Hope you get answers soon though
How does Ripped compare to Shred? I have it sitting in the wrapper on top of the dvd player.....I need to move my ass!
25/04/2013 at 22:24
I will do, just feel like I had all this plan to start TTCing next month and now it's all been turned on it's head and I'm a bit in limbo - can't really speak to anyone IRL other than H as don't want anyone to know what our plans were/are. Thanks again cp xx
25/04/2013 at 22:27
DD, hope you get some answers x
Weekender I am only in the first week but I like it better already because my thighs are hurting way more than with the shred and that is exactly where I want the most toning. I also have Jillian's Extreme Shed & Shred and Killer Buns & Thighs to try!!! It was a 3 pack off Amazon...
25/04/2013 at 22:29
ha i've got killer buns & thighs (just the dvd unfortunately, not the reality ), and my SIL has borrowed 6 week 6 pack off me, neither of which I've ever done
I think I'll give ripped a go tomorrow
25/04/2013 at 22:35
It actually feels easy while you are doing it so the first day is no problem definitely give it a go - but 24 hours later you can feel you have worked those muscles!
Thanks Alsi x
weekender - thanks. Thyroxine is what you take if it's underactive, and there's no problems taking it in pregnancy - my friend just had to up her dose when she was pg x

Hope they come up with a plan of action DD x
