NOT HAPPY. Plus Some Randoms
Monday: Body Pump, Swim, Run- 4 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill
Tuesday: Rest- Doc appointments
I’ve been sitting in front of my computer screen for a good twenty minutes writing and re-writing a recap on how my doctors appointment went today. In the end, I’m deciding to keep it short, sweet and to the point. My apologies for the “girl talk” portion of this… I haven’t gotten my period for a year. To get pregnant, I need to get my period. In order to get my period, I can’t put my body under any stress. So where does that leave me? Per the Doc’s orders, I’m not supposed to exercise. At. All. Ya, this is one unhappy chica. I can walk the dog, but that’s the extent, at least for now.
Oh, and I’m supposed to gain somewhere around 15 pounds. Four pounds by my next appointment in 2 weeks. To be honest, I’m more upset about the no running/exercising thing, because now I can’t do the triathlon with Raechel and, well, running is how I de-stress. If I could gain weight and keep running, I’d be a happy camper, haha. Not gonna lie though, I know this is going to be a hard process. These instructions might not even work, but we want to take a more natural approach before drugging me up. OK, enough of the “depressing” news, let’s talk about some fun stuff…
Right after my appointment, I decided a huge cookie was what the doctor prescribed 🙂
This bad boy was only 75 cents! Homemade and super chocolaty. Just how I like my cookies! Speaking of cookies, Todd ordered Girl Scout cookies from a girl who came knocking on our door and then came about a week ago. One sleeve in the cabinet, one in the freezer. Initially I was mad he got them, as I have no self control around the little discs of deliciousness, but now I guess it doesn’t matter, haha.
I received a wonderful package in the mail from the #keepittight people at PRO Compression. We all know I love the marathon socks and sleeves, but I’d never tried the low trainer socks and I must say, I am in LOVE! SO pissed I won’t be able to run in them any time soon, but I did get in a 8 miler with them last week. No slipping or blistering (I didn’t even wash them first) and my feet were dry and comfy- remember, it’s been warm here in FL, so plenty of sweating has occurred.
And for something completely random… the other night we had grilled asparagus with dinner and after getting halfway through, I noticed I really like the thicker ones better (that’s what she said (that’s for your Raechel!)) Don’t get me wrong, I don’t discriminate when it comes to my veggies, I’ll eat them all, but the thicker asparagus have more flavor. IMO. And grilling makes them that much more delicious 🙂
So again I ask, please bare with me as this baby making adventure continues. It should be interesting to say the least! Now go bike/swim/kick box/Body Pump/elliptical/run a mile for me! And when you’re doing it just whisper, “This is for you Heather!” No one will think you’re crazy 😉
Which would be harder for you- gaining weight or not exercising at all?
Do you prefer thick or thin asparagus?
