Day 37 of 120 & Doctor Visit Day

lmp day 37

The stitches are officially out! And that is the only good news I got today. So at the visit she decided the stitches definitely needed to come out because they were tearing the skin a bit and causing quite a bit of discomfort.  But here is the kicker. the wound still needs a little time so I get to wear a sexy splint on my finger with a tongue depressor behind it to keep my finger and knuckle from bending, a lovely butterfly closure and some tape over that for at least the next 24 hours. YAY! *note sarcasm.  So workouts were and will be affected by that.

She also took a look at my knee. It constantly sounds like two stones rubbing together. Her thoughts are either the kneecap is slightly off or Osteoarthritis. Neither would be serious so I am not too worried if either is the case. I am scheduled for an x-ray and have a follow-up on November 8th and will know for sure what the issue is. The part that gets me is that she said no running, no jogging, no aerobics, no lunges, and no squats until after my follow-up appointment and we know for sure what is going on. Honestly, the no lunges part did not bother me at all. Everyone knows I loathe lunges. Thinking I am going to keep the squats but just not hit them as hard. Time to be a rebel. Plus I just don’t see how it can hurt doing it for a couple of weeks more. I would miss out on so much of the Les MIlls Pump program if I cut everything out. I will not run, jog, do aerobics or lunge and will cut back on the squats.  Going to do my best at sticking with the program as much as possible and just modify the hell out of certain things for now.

Today’s scheduled workout was Hard Core Abs along with a 40 minute walk. Got through hard core abs minus the last track. No way i wan balance myself on my hand with this darn splint and tongue depressor on it. For the walking portion I hopped on the treadmill and just walked at a fairly brisk pace.


You can’t see it but the tongue depressor shoved behind the splint it not comfortable. Doesn’t this just look super fun?!

Last Day of Summer!

Back to School for Miss Emma Kay tomorrow. She is pretty excited to go back and to wear all of her new clothes. Well the tops, she is one of those kids that swears all pants, shorts, underwear and shoes are uncomfortable. So far there has been no way to successfully convince her otherwise. Personally I am not ready for her to go back. I enjoy having her around the house. But can’t keep her from education. So back to early nights and even earlier mornings. We spent the day doing what she wanted, it consisted of Chinese food, the arcade and then pizza for dinner in a few here.

Tomorrow I am going to try to hit the pavement in the a.m. after she goes to school. With neighbor kids back in school there will be fewer people out and about so I can have some privacy. The possibility of puking on the side of the street in front of the neighbors is pretty mortifying. Plus seeing how it goes seems like a good idea to me. Won’t know unless it is tried.

Surfing the internet or “googling” as the kid calls it, late last night I stumbled upon a full Les Mills pregnancy brochure. Pretty awesome (well, I think so). it gives you modifications for pretty much all the basic LMP moves. it will certainly come in handy! If you would like to check it out you can do so (HERE). It is showing lunges as being allowed, just not walking lunges. definitely checking with the doc on this when I go in on the 10th. The brochure is getting printed up and taken to the doctor with me. Sure will make explaining everything much easier!
