Yay! Here is Marley!
What.a.day. Good grief. I am so happy it’s practically over. We started training at 8:30 am and the day didn’t start out the best. Not to get terribly personal, but I was (sort of? more on this later) diagnosed with PCOS. This is polycystic ovary syndrome. I get horrible, terrible, no good, very bad cramps. They wake me up at night right when it’s time to take more meds, I pump Motrin 800’s into my body like candy and it still doesn’t knock out the pain. I also massively bloat, am usually dragging and who can forget the ever popular emotional roller coaster? So much fun! Today, I cried before 10:30 am, then again in the afternoon and then again on the way home from crossfit. The next couple of days will only be marginally better :/
One reason I was upset this morning? Because I was out of this
After an all day training session, I was working on a presentation when my internet went down. Boo. I worked up until it was time for crossfit and then hightailed it across town. For some reason today was sucky. I was REALLY sore, felt like a chubby bunny and while I joke around about being built like a t-rex, it’s kind of depressing to realize it’s true. It’s also embarrassing. Usually I don’t mind being the one who is weaker or slower but my ego was all sensitive tonight.
Crossfit got over and I needed a boost. Even though it’s not recommended to work out within 3 hours of a session (before or after) I thought I needed to go for a run. Haha, that turned into a run/walk because they were right – you are tired! Finally, I finished my presentation and am able to reunite with my couch. Oh and I was able to bring in my basket of laundry :) Speaking of which, I tried these the other day
I did the math and they are fairly comparable to liquid detergent. Especially considering they have detergent, a stain fighter and some kind of color booster all in one. I like that I don’t have to haul around a bunch of different bottles too. My new place doesn’t have a washer/dryer (yeah, it was like finding out Santa didn’t exist all over again) so these are helpful. Since I typically don’t use a stain fighter on a regular basis or a color booster, the price may not be as cheap vs. just soap but I’ll figure that out once I have my own w/d (someday!).
I’m not exaggerating – I won’t be able to use my arms tomorrow. This morning I struggled with turning off my alarm clock! And we hit the push-ups HARD tonight! Seriously, I will pay you $5 million dollars if you come over and help me get ready for work in the morning! ;)
p.s. special thanks to my commentors yesterday for the compliments! They were such a bright spot!
