Butt Kicking Bike Seat

I've done well. I've had a bike ride 4 out of the last 5 days and tracked food everyday and stayed within my calorie range.

The bike is kicking my butt. Yesterday, I thought I'd overdone it. The last two miles...I seriously thought I wasn't going to make it and would have to walk. But I did stay on the bike although my muscles were screaming and my vajayjay was trying to eat the bike seat. There was some pain there. Any thoughts on bicycling while TTC? I'll die if it somehow effects getting pregnant. I already have one of those extra big, soft bike seats. For me, there is a lot and I mean A LOT of weight balanced on that delicate body part when I'm on a bike. Can the uterus or uterine lining somehow be effected by all that weight and pressure for that period of time? Can it be squashed or somehow damaged? Jeez...the things I have to consider right now.

I'm starting to worry about the month of July. I won't be working and will be on the serious drugs. It's so difficult for me to keep myself busy during time off. How will I manage while on Lupron, etc? How will I keep my drugged out Crazy Train Brain occupied?

Mom and Dad are discontinuing use of their safe deposit box and gave me my birth certificate and some savings bonds from when I was born. My birth certificate was so small. About the size of an index card folded into a little envelope. I've never seen one like that before. Dad joked that the county was on a tight budget that year.

Mom gave me some beautiful summer squash. The first garden produce. Lovely.

These are the mudane but lovely details of the weekend. Why is it that sometimes when I have a quiet weekend alone, I'm miserable and other times I revel in it?


  1. Oh, I've had rides like that, where I was worried I wouldn't make it home! Not a fun feeling. But as for TTC and biking, I think you're fine, just as long as you don't have any of those too-long rides while you're in your 2ww. :)

    You have got to find yourself a project to keep you occupied next month. Remodeling, a photography class, something!

    Enjoy your squash. Yummy!

  2. See and I was going to suggest one of those nice padded seats. But your ahead of me on that. I don't know if it will affect TTC although I've seen others who've talked about riding etc.
    I agree with the project idea too. Sounds like a good idea.

  3. Yay for you for insisting on finishing those rides even if you butt....
    And I love Shanon's idea of finding some kind of project :-).

  4. Bouncing off Shannon's advice, I started scrap-booking...the hours just fly by & I love looking through all my old photos of happy times...I read on another blog to download a tv series you've alway wanted to see but didn't, keeps the mind occupied for longer than just a movie...

    Great job with your exercise & diet!


    E bought these for our bikes and I LOVE it. Before I would have terrible butt and vajayjay pain but this seat got rid of it! It looks small (and I have a LARGE rear)but it really is comfortable
