Then this morning, I grabbed a pair of pants that used to be a little big on me, so I thought they might fit (as in, I'd be able to zip and button them). Yep, WRONG. I can zip them, but it's not comfortable... they don't even come close to buttoning. Not.even.close. (Thank you belly band!) They are also a bit tight on my rear and thighs, which leads me to...
I'm going back to CrossFit next week. I am both excited and nervous. I haven't done CrossFit since February, before I started my first round of IVF. And even then, I was less than stellar in my attendance (thanks to a 6 am class and a girl who hates to get out of bed). I am going back twice a week in the evenings, and I am going to modify and scale BIG TIME. I just need something to motivate me, especially since we're about to enter into the time of year when it is dark every day when I leave the office. This does not make for safe dog walking after work. I've had mixed thoughts about going back - pregnant and after an 8 month hiatus - but I know myself and my abilities, and I know I won't push myself beyond what is comfortable. I'm just looking forward to getting back into a bit of a routine and using up the last three months of my membership. I will decide in January if I want to try to continue through my third trimester or just come back when I get the all clear to workout after the baby... even then, that will only be through my maternity leave, because I know I won't be doing it once I'm working full time with a baby. On my maternity leave, I can attend the Women's class where there's childcare available (and God willing, my child just takes a nap in his/her carrier during that time).
Besides that, I'm still feeling tired but otherwise good. We are going to a Ryan Bingham concert tonight, which should be interesting because I could REALLY use a nap today and it will be a late night for this girl. At least baby's first concert is a good one... gotta start 'em young!
P.S. Childcare in the city of Atlanta is outrageous... I already knew this, but not only are the waiting lists forever long, you have to pay to get on them, and then "tuition" is $1200-$1500 per month! Craziness.
