First….Happy 25th Birthday to my cute little brother!!!!
I can’t believe he is 25!! Crazy!!
Today I had another hospital appointment this morning. Everything is fine from all the tests I did, including the glucose tests that I had to re-do. So they don’t consider me to have gestational diabetes over here…so that’s good news!!
I got the synopsis lowdown from the midwife about labour and delivery and meds and the procedure and steps to follow when the BIG IT happens!!!! It was all a little overwhelming and scary!! But I came over so late and have been unable to join any classes that’s supposed to explain all this as they are full! So she was nice enough to do a brief point by point in case I can’t go to any classes and have the good ol’ YouTube to rely on!
And then she was like, make two appointments to see your GP at 37 and 39 weeks, and go out front and book to come back to the hospital for 41 weeks now in case I have not had the baby by then….so I booked an appointment for September 25th on my way out!!!
That was strange.
Soooooooo….I said bye to the hospital for now – and a “see you when I am giving birth!”
On the weird note….
Last night I think the little schmonkie had the hiccups! Seriously!! I was lying down and I could feel a repetitive little beat for a long time! It went on for a while and was so consistent so it had to be that!!
I got worried actually as it really did go on for a long time!! But it did eventually stop so that was good!
So I gave the little one the hiccups with whatever I ate! Great!!

Jam packed today again – yet another day of two shows so had to take care of the 365 early on. Yesterday I didn’t get home until around 2am so it was a good thing I had done the blog and all. That is the last thing I want to do when I come home that late, that’s for sure!
You know what helps you do the 365 fitness, doing it in front of the TV while watching an infomercial about getting fit! And ironically, this morning the infomercial was Jillian Michaels and her new 90 day DVD set 🙂 Normally I get the Insanity infomercials on a Saturday morning – which I have seen so many times!! And yet funnily enough, I seem to watch a lot each time before switching channels…I have to admit I like the before and after pictures…although it makes you wonder with the technology these days, what stops them from having overweight people and simulating what they would look like thinner and toned with Photoshop? Or the other way around – having a super athletic person and then transforming what they would look like if they were fatter and out of shape with a little Photoshop….
Right after I watched way too much of the Jillian Michaels show, guess what was on the next channel…another fitness infomercial, but one I had never seen before…something to do with a Brazilian personal trainer making promises to lift your butt! That’s right…the women testimonials and pictures were all about how this program had changed their butts! NO JOKE! The before and after photos focused on the butts of these women transforming with this fitness and dance regime over a few months…it was hilariously graphic!!! The butts did look better and lifted! That was a new one for me on a Saturday morning 🙂
Interestingly on these photos, just after I had thought about the photoshopping possibility and the authenticity of the before and after shots, this Brazilian butt lift show had photos too and at the bottom it said “these have not been photoshopped” or something like that! And boy did these photos look R.E.A.L!!! The real-ist before and after shots I have ever seen…stretch marks, fat dimples…it was, on one hand a relief that finally a show is baring it all, but on the other hand now seriously made me wonder how much photoshopping is being done on all the other fitness infomercials out there!
I found it, the Brazil Butt Lift brief infomercial on YouTube, but sadly this is like a minute version so the good real before and after footage is not there, but here is a little bit of what was on TV…its like butt porn!!!!!!!! BOOTY PORN!!!
Day 27: February 4th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!
Cardio was = Loom Movement/Wall Squats/Walking
Dance of the Day was = “I Wanna MMM” by The Lawyer
Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Restaurant Faces”
Anything to Note =
Firstly, since this is fresh on my mind, please watch the ridiculous music video of my dance of the day song “I Wanna MMM” by The Lawyer!! The song itself is just hilarious for those of you have never heard it before, but we just looked up the video and it is bizarre!! Here…
Stuart had never heard this before although it came out a while ago and of course since it’s a Euro Dance Song it was a big hit in Euro Techno land! It’s also just funny! Stuart actually danced along for the first time, but I believe we were both doing the dance to work on our bowels moving after a huge meal out!! Haha! I Wanna…poop poop poop!! HAHA!! I am still so full that I am delirious!
Going backwards now, since I am crazy after all, I managed to get my fitness criteria in at rehearsal offstage in the scenes I was not in but I felt guilty as I didn’t want to distract or make noises while other people were working on stage…it was a little tedious but I knew we were going to dinner tonight straight after rehearsal so wanted to get it all done – sorry Loom Ensemble if I disturbed you in any way.
Again, on the crazy theme – I didn’t think the Loom movement today was enough so added wall squats when I could and then ended up still not thinking it was enough cardio so added more walking into my day. When is it enough, is what I want to know, since I clearly struggle with that.
I had to take the R train to Astoria tonight as it was closest to the restaurant and holy moly do I not want to take that train again! The tunnel tip-toe requirement was so hard! The tunnel is super long and it goes super slow…I was fumbling around in my boots – I am sure people were wondering why I could not keep still. It was horrible – will be avoiding that if possible!
And to end….I just want to say…I Wanna MMM…do you?
