Yup, you guessed it I am sure by the early blog entries today….I can’t sleep! No news here, just the same ol’ same ol’ I can’t sleep routine. Rough night – not sure but I was up for most of the night. I know I am having a hard time getting comfortable for some reason but there’s got to be more to it than that as eventually you would find a position, right?? Nope, not me. And I have always been a bad sleeper, waking up every hour, before I was pregnant, but now it’s worse than that! And I could never imagine it being worse 😦

As I was thinking this morning while lying there, maybe things are going on in my belly and its keeping me awake? Could that be a viable option maybe? I am a very light sleeper so it could be a theory – which means that this will then continue until September 22nd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH!!

Well I decided to get up and do my 365 while I was awake before I had to go to my Brooklyn apartment walk-through with a client (a difficult client actually, so we’ll see how that goes!!). Doing 365 half asleep is odd! It’s kind of like your ears are blocked or something and your body won’t move the way you want it to – you know, like when you try to make a fist with your hand first thing and it won’t close all the way…that’s how my dance felt this morning! Only time I am ever dancing in the morning is when I have been up all night dancing and its the morning and I am still dancing!! 🙂

Well, guess what everybody? BIG NEWS!! I am having quadrouplets!!!!!!!!!

Yup, quadrouplets!!! I just found out – my doctor just called me!!!!

AND, I just checked my lottery ticket and I won the mega millions lottery!!!!!

AND, I just got a knock at the door and I am one of those cash prize winners for life!!!!

AND, I just got a call that my birth certificate is wrong and they made a mistake – they wrote 1981 by mistake but they meant to write 1987!! So, I’m only 25!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!

AND, a pig just flew past my window!!!!!

AND…..

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(inspired by the fact I woke up to a text from my father that he won the British lottery and I wrote back saying I was having quadrouplets!! Haha!!)

I wish this 365 Challenge was an April Fool’s Day joke!!!!!!!


365 ONE: day 83…I am a spinning resistance knob!

A very blah day. I am not feeling so good today and can’t seem to shake it. So I have been lying down off and on instead of doing the one million things I need to be doing. I am so super tired, I can feel it, but can’t nap so its been a rough day so far 😦

Since I am not feeling so good I have been taking it easy today with my 365 – having to do it at random times and not all at once. On days like this I start to dislike this challenge sadly and so wish I didn’t have to do it. But then I know I have to go as far as I can and I also know that keeping a little active every day is also good for me and the pregnancy, as long as I don’t over-do it, I know I know.

I actually thought that the planks and push-ups would get easier considering I have been doing them for 83 days! But then it hit me – D’UH!! – I am carrying extra weight and that keeps increasing so its like I am my very own personal resistance machine!! No need to increase the weight dial like at the gym, as it will be happening on its own! It’s like I am that spinning resistance dial on the front of the bike that you have to dial up when they yell at you to do so, but I guess I am gradually going up anyway – there’s no going back down!

Or this is my excuse at least, and I am sticking to it!! 🙂

I have modified my sit-ups a little already to be more side-oriented and not full on front or intense, as they say that your stomach muscles relax anyway for the stretch of the baby so then what is the point of doing any sit-ups other than I HAVE to for the 365 challenge! So, I have made them about the sides instead. I will have to probably go onto all fours later on and do the cat thing as my sit-ups or something as I will not be able to continue the fatter I get!

Ah….the fatter I get!!!!! Oy-vey!

Also, I read that lying on your back for long periods of time is not good for your blood pressure or the blood pressure and oxygen getting to the baby, and it makes me nauseous. But that’s why I have not been allowed to sleep on my back, and for me that has been dire as I do sleep on my back, so this is tough and not helping my already lack of sleep.

I haven’t modified the rest yet, but I know I will have to as I go along – trying to hold out as long as I can. I have noticed that the one criteria that is not getting enough attention or has decreased is my vigor and dedication to the stretching 365 criteria. I have marked it off as not that important when I have to get things done in the day to satisfy the 365, so its been minimal, and it shouldn’t be. Especially as that is why I am not really allowed to be running or jogging or anything as it hurts my knee and some stretching exercises were supposed to alleviate it, or help, if I followed them daily and exactly. Ugh. My stretching has not been that good lately. I will need to try to find some strength to make it mentally important again and soon.
