Next Steps

It was quite a busy Christmas weekend for us. We went to my in-laws’ for Christmas Eve and spent Christmas day to ourselves. It was nice to have time alone with DH since we have been busier than expected the last few weeks. One of his gifts to me was a Fitbit. I was thinking about wearable technology the night before and almost told him that I wouldn’t be interested in getting things like that due to feeling too connected. Imagine my surprise when I saw my Fitbit. It still feels weird to be attached to something like this but it’s definitely given a lot of good information on things like my sleep. My period started on Saturday, and Sunday I had trouble sleeping due to cramps. According to my Fitbit I was restless 10 times and woke up once. And I walk way more than I realized.

Anyway, I have not worked out this week, which sucks. Monday we were still doing family holiday stuff with my in-laws, and Tuesday I had to go to work early to try to get caught up (I didn’t). DH and I went out with his cousin who was visiting from out of town Tuesday night and I got food poisoning. I got to work almost an hour late due to vomiting and wasn’t able to keep anything down until mid-afternoon. I almost went home early but it’s been very busy and I didn’t want to get further behind. I plan to get back into my routine in the next few days so I’m not totally off.

I’m back to baseline now but I didn’t feel ready to get back to the gym this morning. Plus, I finally got my blood work done to check my eggs and hormone levels. The clinic I went to was way nicer that the ones I’ve been to before, probably because it’s in a somewhat remote area and I went 30 minutes after they opened. I’ll call my doctor’s office today to see what the next step is, but hopefully we can get the ball rolling again soon.

    If you really want to be creeped out by technology when you sleep, there’s a free app called Sleep Recorder that you turn on before you go to sleep and it records every noise during the night – from snoring to farting to talking in your sleep (the latter which is creepy rather than funny)!

    Happy new year and here’s looking to good things in 2017!
