The biking is going good. I am building my endurance back up. I am almost at an hour each session now. I went to the doctor today and I am done with my boot as of today. I may need it if I am feeling pain just to slow myself down a bit but I went outside in two sneakers today for the first time in almost 3 months. It sounds stupid but felt like a big day for me. I can start riding my bike outside, which means standing up on the bike, when I am ready. The PT suggested I wait until the muscles get a bit stronger as I haven't really used them in a couple of months. After a month on the bike I move to an elliptical for 6 weeks because it more closely simulates running without the impact. Then I can start running again. It's looking like early January.How did the bike riding go? I'm so looking forward to regular running again, but I feel a bit badly that the dog won't be getting to run. I'm going to try and find someone to watch P on weekends so I can take him out.
No reason to apologize. I hear the same thing from all my parent friends. I don't expect P to sleep through the night while she's still nursing, but sleep deprivation doesn't really bother me, it's sort of a way of life for me. It's not being able to understand what's wrong when I've run out of things to consider (food, diaper, burp, too hot/cold, dog holding her head down with his paw so he can groom her...and yes, that last one actually happened this week.)
But, I have been doing my P90X workouts every other day since I could start exercising again. I am back to being focused on my eating and weight loss. I want to get to under 200 lbs, which is now 25 lbs away. And I start back to work on 11/1. That part stinks.
That's my story.
I didn't mind the lack of sleep much either. Although by child number 4 it begins to get old. Thankfully I am done with that phase. As for the not being able to figure out what the baby wants, it doesn't get any easier when they can talk. You would think it does but it doesn't. They can't always express themselves as easily as us and then they get older and start lying so you play that game too. Being a parent=hardest job ever! But it is so awesome all at the same time. The dog probably loves having her around just as much as you do.
I think we lost the rest of our group.
