While I'm thankful the migraines are down to a weekly occurrence, I could really do without the nausea and sound sensitivity.

Prior to the onset of this, I did get to go to the Y and get cardio and weights done. Then I had a good soak in the whirlpool. :)

I just want to toot my own horn for a minute. I've been going to the Y 2-3x a week for the last 6 weeks. It may not sound like much, but I'm glad that i look forward to it.  It's my time to just be with me.  Tom's been so supportive of it, and Amelia enjoys going there to play. Katie still hates not being able to see me at all times, but she'll get over it, I hope. :)

Y stuff

I finally attended a Water Conditioning class at the Y yesterday. I was expecting it to be somewhat easy, but I was pleasantly shocked to find out it was taught by the Y's resident Yoga/Pilates/Aerobics fanatic. While I wasn't sweating, we were working hard. 5 minutes of straight crunches work you, even if you are in a pool.  The entire class finished up the 75 minute work-out with a soak in the whirlpool.   I definitely want to take this again.

I've been fighting a migraine all weekend, so I'm a touch spent. I probably should have skipped the class, but rarely does my time dovetail with committing to a long class. Katie's still not happy with the in-Y daycare, so I tend to do cardio where I can easily stop and go get her if the staff deems her sorrow too overwhelming.

I am scheduled for my second meeting with my personal trainer next Monday.  Tom is off work that day, so he can hang with Katie.  I'm worried that the timing will not work. I have a nerve conduction study scheduled for earlier that morning.  I fear I'll be feeling puny to the point where working out will be contradicted. However, the doctor's office thinks I'll be just fine to do anything afterward.

1. I'm on day 10 of no migraine. This is amazing.
2. We joined the YMCA yesterday. I need to invest more in myself, and I deserve to have the time to work out without worrying about the kids. The Y offers 8 hours of daycare per child per week included in the membership. Oh, yes.
3. As part of the Y membership, you get 6 free sessions with a personal trainer. I was able to snag a session this morning and get a plan of attack for getting back into the exercise habit. I'm working on increasing flexibility and energy. I specifically told the trainer that I can't focus on weight loss right now, because it'll all be about the numbers.  Trust me, I've played that game and lose every time.
3. Amelia and Katie make me laugh every day.
4. Tom thrills me all the time. I never thought I deserved this kind of happiness.
