365 ONE: day 233…Falling Apart List

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Mia Nyxta Ston Paradeiso” by Nikos Koyrkoylhs

Anything to Note =

I tried to speed walk yesterday and again today, but failed.

I did wear my maternity belt though for the first time in a long time while I walked as I keep forgetting. So yeah, one point for me there, but, in terms of trying to speed walk, I get a minus one. I just could not do it.

Seriously.

I tried to speed walk but my tendons were just so painful. They are so tight that there was no way to keep up my pace.

Ugh.

So now I can add that to my joyful pregnant “I’m falling apart” list…

– backache
– wrist pain
– right arm elbow joint pain that I had to modify my push-ups
– I can’t and don’t sleep
– swollen feet
– hands swollen so much that I am afraid to wear both rings now

And that list goes on and on…

…but I can now add…

– painful tendons in my legs ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Also…possibly also something to do with maybe Braxton Hicks contractions?? They say that you have these going on for a while but may not necessarily always feel them…I don’t know. I’ve got something going on that’s either that and/or pressure that causes pain – Weird!

There’s definitely some big shifting going on now “in my belly” (said in Austin Powers style)…soooo tired haha! But yeah, I can feel and see some stuff going on. It’s high up near my ribs and either from a head, hands or foot action. And it stays there for a while as a hard bulge! What is he doing in there???!!!

You little schmonkie you!! Thank you for my falling apart list!!

Today it is 36 weeks!!!

So I’m in my ninth month!! Holy CRAP!!!

I took my monthly photo this morning so will have to post – actually am behind in posting the last few monthly bump photos but thought I would wait until 40 weeks (if the schmonkie doesn’t come before that which I am told is unlikely as first babies usually come late) and then can put them all together to see the whale I gradually became/have become!!

I finally caught up with What To Expect When Expecting! I got through all the months and am in the Labour and Delivery section now…which I am guessing I need to know about haha!

It’s funny as I think I was still on month 4 when I got to London so it’s been a crash course to catch up on in just a couple of weeks! I actually left that book in London so had no chance to read it before. And I know I know, people keep asking why I didn’t just skip to the right month to catch up but I felt guilty! And I stumbled across a number of things that could have been useful back in the appropriate month but hey!!

So….

Two or three more books to go!!

Actually my mum has already read one book and made notes for me!! Yup, and highlighted!! So I need to read that or the notes or both!!

And then…I have to learn it and remember it and put it into practice with the little schmonkie!!

Crazy!!

Sidenote: I have to adapt my push-ups as yesterday and today my wrist really hurt and my joints on my right elbow hurt like they were being strained…because I am a whale!! So need to go onto my knees and adapt before I injure myself I think.


365 ONE: day 68…Pussycat Dolls in the Stairwell!

Day 68: March 16th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Buttons” by Pussycat Dolls

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Too Hot To But Do”

Anything to Note =

I burned my tongue on my hot food….which inspired my video upload ๐Ÿ™‚

Leaving for MD for the weekend as have a film shoot down in Baltimore so had to race around today amidst crazy work to get all my 365 done as I will be driving in rush hour after so will take a while to get there and won’t be any time for some 365. Certainly cannot do it in the car while driving!!

So another one of those days where I squeeze it all in at the office. This time I was pretty lucky though as managed to get in all my push-ups and planks and sit-ups in one go with not one single person coming in to the bathroom, so that was good ๐Ÿ™‚ Lately, can’t get anything in as there is always someone else in there.

Another dance in the stairwell today too – this time though a man watched me go into the stairwell as he was heading to the men’s toilet which is right next door, and gave me a funny look like “Where is she going? And why is she going into the stairwell?” So from the bathroom he probably heard my Pussycat Dolls song haha!!

I wonder – all the things I do in the stairwell, there must be building security cameras, right? Soooooo are they watching me? It hit me in the middle of my dance today as I was provocatively dancing like a stripper to the stairwell rails that there may be people watching me so at first I was like – wow, they are going to be laughing their asses off! But then it inspired me to make them laugh more….yup,. out came the inner cage girl again!!

I sooooo want to be a cage girl…

Or a Go Go Dancer…

After I have my baby!!!

Ummmmmm….


365 ONE: day 22…and a new week begins…

Day 22: January 30th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking (with heavy backpack)

Dance of the Day was = “Land Down Under” by Men at Work

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Silent Dance”

Anything to Note =

I had to cram in my criteria again today as had my staged reading performance of Three Sisters tonight at The Player’s Club with rehearsal there in the space all afternoon. So I did my planks, push-ups and sit-ups at the office. It’s so much nicer to do the planks on carpet – it doesn’t hurt your arms as much – and with the push-ups too I guess. There is that little room before you enter the actual bathroom at work with a large mirror and couch, and carpeted floor – I love doing my 365 there. I went back to do my sit-ups but there was a girl in there on the couch so had to do them on the floor in the disabled bathroom larger stall! It was gross! Doing my sit-ups on the tiles near the loo!!!!! This girl who also works in our suite tends to have moments in her day where she sits on the couch to rest, or sometimes cry (really sad) but she prevents me from using that space, so it makes it hard sometimes to coordinate! I always hope she is not there when I go to the bathroom so I can use the carpeted area!

I just want to add again though – it was gross doing sit-ups on the cold tiles, in a bathroom, literally right next to the toilet! AND…in a nice dress!!!

I danced to my Aussie song today in the bathroom at The Player’s Club – of course I chose this song to honor my Aussie cousin’s birthday, who is staying with me in NYC at the moment…or at least I will gladly say so….but not sure I put two and two together until after since I found the next song and pressed play!

I then decided to do my crazy upload in that bathroom too! I spent a lot of my 365 in bathrooms apparently today! HAHA! The bathroom downstairs at The Player’s Club though was sooo warm and the theatre was soooo cold, so I was happy to be down there – in front of full-size mirrors ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t watched my video though – I can only imagine what came out….vaguely remember me doing a “silent dance” with a bathroom stall like I am crazy!! But too late so wanted to just get my blogs posted so I can go to bed!

Hmmmmmmmm….
