Day two of the Official Acupuncturist Fertility Diet Recommendations went swimmingly well. But damn, I would cutabitch for some cheese right now. Walnuts and goji berries are growing on me, but I think I might just get sick of eggs. Eye on the prize, though.
Interestingly enough, I think acupuncture and my dietary changes have maybe already had an effect on my chart?
My temperatures have never, ever held quite so steady as they have been for the last week—I’m queen of the sawtooth pattern, up and down, rinse and repeat. I’m definitely planning on asking about this at my next appointment! (Perhaps it’s a fluke, too, but in eighteen months of charting, I’ve never seen ANYTHING like this.)
Moving along. I forgot to photograph today’s WOD. It was an odd one, but a fun one (that you can do at home! Right where you are!). For 15 minutes, on every minute, we did:
Once you completed those, you did air squats for the remainder of the minute. Then, repeat. Your score was the total number of squats you did over 15 minutes. I managed 171, which I feel pretty good about. I think some guy puked today. (But I didn’t!)
I liked it. I <3 CrossFit, in case you haven’t noticed. But I’m glad tomorrow’s a rest day, so I can sleep in a bit and nurse the sore butt I’ve had since Monday.
Today was an uneventful day, other than two purchases in the mail.
My Cute Overload 2012 wall calendar. Every year I put up some ridiculous cute animal calendar in my office, just to see how far I can push it before my co-workers have me committed. Last year was 12 months of puppies and kittens snuggling. This year? Hamsters in tiny inner tubes.
I also got my Lululemon Stride jacket that I purchased with Christmas gift cards on Boxing Day. (I just like to say Boxing Day.)
I was worried the stripes might make me look like the Hamburglar, but I don’t think that’s the case.
Also, this video made me cry big fat tears today. I remember how timid and exhausted Milhouse was when we brought him home (he wasn’t a research dog, but it’s suspected that he came from a bad puppy mill bust) and get all misty. (And then I see the brazen dog that rolls around on our clean sheets just for fun and the mist mostly dries up. But still.)
Is it Friday yet? Is it just me or is this the longest four-day week EVER?
