Hopefully I can stick to this and not sneak in a few cookies, graham crackers, chips, M&M's, or whatever else tempts me.
I had my monthly OB appointment on Monday afternoon. I was very anxious to confirm that the little guy is alright. I think having had a miscarriage just makes me very nervous. I held my breath while the doctor looked for his heartbeat with the Doppler thing. When she found it I teared up and just took it in, "I never get tired of hearing that." She just let it sit there for a few moments while I listened. Now that I am officially, officially out of the 1st trimester and have confirmed he's alive and well in there I am feeling much more relaxed.
So I went to my swim class on Monday and once again left feeling on top of the world. I can't say often enough how happy I am to have that class. I think it's keeping me sane despite the scale. We did some drills that involved swimming 3 laps fast. I was definitely breathing hard but I don't think I overdid it. Plus it was for 1 min 15 sec at a time. And I learned have a pretty strong breaststroke kick. I was flying by the other swimmers :) I'm looking forward to going again this evening. I don't know what my 3rd workout type activity will be this week. It's supposed to be hot this weekend so I'm thinking of the beach for Saturday with Miguel, which won't be a workout. So Sunday I'll have to come up with something. Maybe I'll visit that place, what's it called? The gym? I have been wanting to do some light weight training.
Guess what? I got a haircut!! I've been thinking about it for a while and finally took the plunge earlier this week. Nothing too drastic, just shorter, with some layers in the back and around my face. I don't have my normal camera so here's a phone picture. I'm really liking it. Part of why I went shorter was so I would wear it down more often. So far, so good. But man am I getting a lot of gray hairs!
Well, that's it for me. I'm off to enjoy my lunch.
