Well my run this morning did not go as planned, but then again, sort of did go as planned. I wanted to do 8 miles, but when I woke up, I was totally OK with the idea of doing just 5-6. I started with 2 on the treadmill and felt fine. Weather was in the 40s, so I headed outside and thought I could do a 3.5-4 mile loop. Suddenly after the first mile, I got a side stitch. I don’t get these much, and when I do, they go away quickly. This one did NOT. I slowed to 9 min/miles and ran on. I could tell it was just gas pain because it felt better when I started burping haha. Nonetheless, I ran back to the house after just 2.2 miles. I walked around the house for a few minutes then hopped on the treadmill to see what happened. No side stitch. ugh. I planned to power through til 6 miles total, but ended up going the full 8. Yay. I might attempt 8 again later this week. Not sure yet. Tomorrow I hope to run outside and not feel terrible. Get in around 5-6 miles. I have 24.5 to go to reach 150 for the month. And 7 days to get it all in.
I had another Dr’s appt. They seem pretty pointless, but I guess checking my BP and piss is pretty important at this point. Weighed in at 146.6 which is slightly less than last week but still up 1.5 pounds from 2 weeks ago, so I am still on track. Going to load up on cheeseburgers this week. Not really. My stomach still feels squished. I did demolish some chocolate cake today. When I found out that I can’t eat 12 hours before my c-section, I started to panic a bit. They won’t let you eat afterwards for awhile either. I’m hoping the narcotics will keep me from being hangry around the new baby.
RKY and I actually went on a date night on Saturday! One of his employees watched the Red. We went to a fancy restaurant. He had bone marrow and pork belly. I had a burger with chorizo and some kind of maple sauce with boetje’s green beans. Mine was pretty good. His was eh and he had to get a Snicker’s bar on the way home. It was nice to be alone for a while. God knows when that will happen again.
I’m pretty much over work at this point and willing to have the baby just so I can get a day off. I don’t see that happening, so I will have to make up some work to do the rest of the week. Maybe clean my office…maybe.
