But I've been up since 3:30a and need a quick work break so here we go.
Still anxious, but fresh off my latest doctors appointment and lots of Twitter congratulations/encouragement I was riding higher than the weeks before.
While the nausea backed off the headaches ramped up and the exhaustion and the peeing. Exhaustion I'm used to. But headaches, no. And peeing in the middle of the night, well I never. A lot of my dreams include the pain from my headaches (which I compare to someone putting ice cubes directly on my brain) and the need to pee. It's a good time.
I was counting down the days until our mini beach vacation. Looking forward to one thing, sleep. We headed to Long Beach for two night and then Cannon Beach for the last two. Aside from finding very little room at the inn when calling to book the last two nights of vacation the day before, the storm with 80 mph gusts and Owen's food poisoning on the last night/day/night... it was incredibly relaxing and felt like we'd been gone for weeks.
WEEK 13 WORKOUTS
No I'm kidding. I did workout. I'm just really bad at recording it right now.
Got the Tracy Anderson Pregnancy Project DVDs. It's a booty burn. I think she has two main objectives: no mum bum and wear awkward body suits that guarantee nip slips. Which I'm fine with because my glutes are weeeeak and who doesn't love the added workout cliff hanger of when a nip might slip?
I'm running a minimum of every other day. My best guess on mileage would be 12-15 for the week. And 2 hours of booty burn with Tracy Nip Slip. Solid.
Headaches and exhaustion march on. With vices limited I find myself accidentally binge eating frosting out of a can or a full pound of salt water taffy. This childish behavior is guaranteed to cause a 2 day headache. A lesson I've learned at least two times a week for the last three weeks.
My other cravings besides straight sugar include grapefruit (peeled and eaten like an orange), edamame (in pod) and roasted seaweed. So I'm trying to indulge those more than the can of frosting cravings.
WEEK 14 WORKOUTS
monday: 2.2 beach run, super windy and didn't have much time
tuesday: Tracy DVD
wednesday: 3.5 + prenatal yoga
friday: 5.4 runch with KG at work
saturday: x (literally did not leave bed)
sunday: 8.5 mile long run solo and just about 9:00 pace.
And finally I leave you with this sweet belly comparison of week 13 v week 14. As you can see a lot sort of does happen in 7 days. Including the debut of my first armpit roll.
