I'm feeling much more optimistic today. As I mentioned in the previous post's comments, I'm going to follow the guidelines of the video and monitor my levels, and make adjustments if I needed.
I had a dream that I was doing pushups with Corinne's team. I felt like a badass. Today's task: researching if there's a difference in doing cardio vs. strength training to stabilize my blood sugar levels. I shall update you with the results when I have carefully considered the research.
We got the Bugaboo last night. It was a fairly dramatic (shocking, I know!) scene, when after having the box open for approximately 3 minutes, Pete put the wheels on wrong and then declared that we'd have to just wait until today to call the help center. I melted into a crying mess -- I've been excited about the Bugaboo since literally the day I found out I was pregnant. I hemmed and hawed and polled and researched and stewed and justified and talked myself out of, then talked myself into buying it (after consulting with our financial adviser and budgeting for it). I've waited literally 7 months. I watched the UPS guy pull up and it was like Christmas. Then Pete seemingly broke it in about 3 minutes. After my crying mess, he was able to fix it, successfully assemble it and we took it for a walk. Obviously the crying mess was more about yesterday's debacle, but really, I was anticipating that seeing the Bugaboo and being able to test drive it and imagine Little Girl in it would alleviate some of the aggravation of yesterday. And in the end, it did. It drives like a dream. Yay!
Pete's birthday is Friday and we're either going out to a nice dinner in Half Moon Bay, or going to see The Dark Knight.
