FluffyRin - Growing Up

Holy moses.  It has been crazy.  Sorry for the complete lack of updates.  I've been fighting some serious exhaustion and just having a bit of a rough go the last few weeks in general.

 

Week 2 Summary:

Mission 1 Breakfast (6/7): Skipped a Saturday.  Wound up going right back to bed after letting out the mutts (usually when I eat) and didn't wake up for a few hours.  Wound up bleary and dizzy.  Learned that lesson...

 

Mission 2 Exercise (2/4): Totally slacked.  Wound up with only a yoga session and a short run.  :-/

 

Mission 3 Planning (1/6): Completely forgot about the classes.  Need to sign up soon!

 

Supplemental Walking (?/15): I did OK on this one, but I didn't do a good job of tracking and it was long enough ago that I really don't remember.  D'oh!

 

Week 3 Summary:

Mission 1 Breakfast (7/7): Was really good about this one - even with the days off during the holiday.  I just feel so much less nauseous when I eat.

 

Mission 2 Exercise (2/4): Woof.  Did the Turkey Day 5k.  It was just ... bad.  Honestly, given the circumstances, it really wasn't that bad, but it just hurt.  And it was slow.  I didn't wear a watch because I didn't want to risk pushing to hard...  When I saw the clock at the end, I was crushed.  Just need to remember it's not really indicative of where I'm at long term.  :-/  Also went for a long walk with Mr. Rin and the pups on Saturday to stretch the legs a bit.

 

Mission 3 Planning (1/6): Totally and completely slacking.  But I think we have some good ideas now for how to break the news to family!

 

Supplemental Walking (9/15): I was pretty much solo in the office all week, so plenty of opportunity to wander around.  Only in the office for 3 days, though.

Get on your planning young miss! I think it still counts if you get a couple completed in the next two weeks lol. As for workouts, you're trying and working with what you've got right now. If you do manage to get yourself up and moving it will help alleviate some of those horrid first/second trimester feelings you're currently facing.

When you can't run, you crawl, and when you can't crawl - when you can't do that... You find someone to carry you

Hey don't feel too bad about the run - the fact that you're out there at all puts you way ahead of the curve.  And I understand about the eating - I was that way too - I found that I felt better if I had just a bit in my stomach, if I let myself get empty that's when the nausea set in.  Hopefully the next couple of weeks will be better.....it will get better......

Darned right!  You were there and you finished.  Sounds like a win to me.

The hardest part of the workout is lacing up your shoes'"

I've got a few things checked off!  Updated list to follow.  :)  And yeah... I'm finding that yoga seems to be the most tolerable and least frustrating, so I've been leaning on that for now.  I just try to make sure I include strength poses in addition to flexibility ones...

Yeah... I know in my head that it was not a bad showing all things considered.  It was just a bit worse than I was anticipating.  And I really think that's it.  I've started keeping some trail mix next to my bed and if I wake up in the middle of the night I grab a handful to help with the morning blechs.  It's definitely getting better - it's just the constant state of feeling sleepy that is starting to wear on me.  :)

Aww. :) Thanks!

So allow me to preface this with: You guys are awesome.  I know I haven't been updating much, but I appreciate that you are still checking in on me!  THANKS!

 

As for goals:

Breakfast has definitely become a habit.  I may not be eating anything remotely paleo, but I'm considering my fortified cereal just an added folic acid boost.  (Right?)

 

Exercise is still pretty hit or miss.  I try to do yoga a couple of times a night, but week nights are brutal.  We're trying to get some small home projects done in the evenings and I'm basically a zombie after doing that work + dinner.  But every now and then I sneak in a quick yoga workout and I try to do a sun salutation or two in the morning to help me wake up.

 

The List is a little behind, but making progress - here's the update:

  1. Choose and register for a day care  (We've visited and narrowed it down.  We just need to make the final decision and get on a wait list.)
  2. Put together a pregnancy announcement! (Partial strike thru - we have some ideas, just need to put them together...)
  3. Get a pretty solid registry list put together
  4. Research and compile a list of pediatricians in the area
  5. Pick a paint color and get started on the nursery
  6. Register for baby classes
    • Infant CPR/First Aid (This is partially covered in our birth class, so I'm debating whether we want to pay for a separate class)
    • Birthing Class
    • Prenatal Exercise (partial strike thru because I found a class, but they don't open up registration again until Jan.)
  7. Research and start training our pups for baby (One is a spaz that currently hates toddlers.  Need to get that behavior in check ASAP.)
  8. Transition to better cleaning supplies (About halfway there.  I've been doing this as things run out.  All purpose cleaner, dish soaps, and shower wash have been replaced.  Laundry soap and dishwasher soap are almost gone.)
  9. Research lactation consultants and put together a short list (This service is provided as part of our birth class - yippee - and we get one complimentary post-delivery visit while in the hospital.)

Supplemental walking has slacked lately.  No good reason, just feeling really blah at work.

 

So all things considered, things are going ok.  Not great, but I'm not really feeling too bad about it since I had no idea what to expect going into this challenge.  I'm at 13 weeks now, so hopefully I'm going to be getting into the phase with more energy and desire to do stuff any day now. :)

 

And I can't wait to finish up the announcements.  They'll almost certainly have some kind of nerdy theme - we just don't know what yet.  I'll post the final here once we get it all done. :)
