Focus on Fitness


Well, this next cycle will for focusing on fitness, and on having a run-in with a really good glass of wine now and then.

Health is about diet and exercise, right?  Well, I've been taking SUPER easy for the last year or so - I think it's time to get back in the game.  Feather can attest there was a time in life I was actually pretty active - I didn't think it was a big deal to run 20km.  Now - I can't even make it around the block without huffing and puffing.  And here I firmly believe in exercise, but I don't do it.  Diet I am doing pretty well, but this is only half of the puzzle.

So, for this cycle:
  • Meaningful exercise every day
    • Which will also help me get in shape for our upcoming backpacking trip
    • And really, with such a low fitness level, maybe being pg would be too much, maybe in retrospect it will be better I raise my fitness level before getting pg?
  • I am one step closer to going on the family trip to Vietnam (where I wouldn't go if I was very pg)
  • I will turn back into one of those people who brings their running ensemble with them on vacation - even car camping.
  • Rest cycle, no drugs or wanding  (still will go for it the old fashioned way, of course)

I sort of felt this was coming.  Maybe not quite so soon  (I think it's a 25 day cycle), but... I didn't feel differently enough.  Even with the HCG shot I was noticeably different from my usual self.


  1. That's a lot of good things to focus on.
    And funny, cause I always think that running anything more than 10km is a big deal.

  2. I love your attitude! And yes, it is about diet and exercise -- I know that I've felt so much better with more exercise in my life.

    You're very brave to go on a family trip to Vietnam!

  3. Yes, fitness (running) is the only thing that keeps me sane sometimes I think. Well, the wine doesn't hurt either. I think you mentioned this before but I really think we would be great IRL friends.

    Sorry about CD1. Really sorry. :(

  4. Oh no!! I'm sorry :-( You have such a great attitude though. I really admire your commitment to being healthy! You go girl!
