Just My Luck

When I went to the doctor last month, she told me to make an appointment for early September and she would see about putting me on Metformin - helps with PCOS. Well I couldn't make my appointment back then because I didn't know how my school schedule was going to be yet. So today I call, and they are switching offices so I can't go see her next week OR even make an appointment to go see her! I was really looking forward to seeing what she was going to say about Metformin and if she thought it was right for me. I guess I have to wait ... just my luck. I also need to call the clinic and set up and IVF consult for late November ... better do that soon too!

Monday was my first official day of "training" for the half marathon. And let me just tell you - I am so out of shape! We jogged/walked 3 miles that first day, and on Tuesday I could NOT move! I hurt in places that I didn't even know you could hurt. Ryle and Megan are like my own personal Bob and Jillian from the Biggest Loser. It really felt like I was on that show Monday evening. On Tuesday, Ryle and I walked about 3 miles - we jogged a little, but mostly walked. Wednesday, Megan, Ryle, and I did intervals (walked 3 minutes and jogged 2 minutes) for 2 whole miles. And tonight was just terrible for me! We planned on doing 5 miles of the walk/jog. But that didn't happen... we did 4 miles and I mostly walked after the first 2. They are just in way better shape than me and I can't keep up. I just got mad at myself for not being able to do it. SO my goal is to work on not getting mad at myself and to do it at my own pace. Even if I have to walk the 13.1 miles, I will finish. I do know that much! I guess I shouldn't be so hard on myself considering I haven't done this much exercise in my life - like ever. And already this week I have done 12 miles.

I have the best friends and family. They have already helped me raise almost $200 for The Children's Hospital. Please help me finish raising the $250 goal that I set for myself. I am almost there! Click on the link to find out more information: Thanks bunches!
