I think I’m ready to start re/previewing my weeks again! Woo hoo!
Okay, the graph from DailyMile makes it look a little more ambitious than it actually was…
- Monday: 0.7 mile – first walk outside post c-section.
- Wednesday: 0.48 mile – first walk with the baby in the BOB. It was too hot and muggy though.
- Thursday: 1 mile – I pushed the BOB and my mom controlled Jade on her leash.
- Friday: 1.1 mile – I took the BOB but left Jade at home since it was my first day on my own and I can’t control Jade’s leash yet. She’s kind of being a punk lately.
I’m hoping that since the weather promises to cool off a little, I’ll be able to get out for at least a mile each morning with the stroller this week.
At my incision check last week I was given permission to go up and down the stairs all I want, but I still can’t drive or lift heavy things. (Heavy meaning more than 10-15 pounds.) It’s frustrating to still feel like a prisoner in my own home in some regards. But then, it’s hard to get out anyway when you’re dealing with the baby’s schedule. If she had a dayplanner if would be very full once you add in all the feeding/changing/playing/sleeping.
I’m having trouble staying in the present moment though. I’m very stressed about work. My part-time employee quit last week, so I had to kind of address that. His last day will be while I’m still on leave. So I’m antsy about how things are being handled while I’m gone. And I’m a complete mess about how I’m supposed to go back to working. My days are consumed with baby-tasks, I have no idea how I’m supposed to squeeze work in there. As well as fitting in regular blogging, working out, freelance tasks, etc. It’s causing me a lot of anxiety.
I have a lot of adhesive tape residue all over from incision, catheter, IV, epidural, etc. If you have any methods for getting rid of that, please let me know! I tried rubbing alcohol (didn’t do anything), oil (made it stickier), abrasive scrub (made the skin red and raw, no way am I doing that near the incision!)… it would be nice to get rid of that!
And I’m eagerly awaiting the Apple announcement on Wednesday… mama needs a new phone! (Or wants a new phone… and it’s weird to say that because I actually am a mama now.)
