I'M AN IDIOT!!!

Friday, July 03, 2009

OMG, I'M AN IDIOT!!!

Okay, I've been having this fear of falling right but every time I think of it I'm falling while getting out of the tub or while going up the stairs (not down).

Well, my chair broke, sending me to the ground!!!

We got the chairs used and it was a bit wobbly but good enough but my son climbs on me while I'm in it, the girls play on it and stand on it and it's just a little fold up wooden chair to start with. Earlier today it was stuck on something and I was yanking at it and noticed that it was even more wobbly. I thought to myself, "This thing is about to fall apart" and yet I still sat my rear in it! Dh even said yesterday, "Get a new chair" but noooo I didn't and then I go to adjust my rump while typing and

CRASH!

I hurt!!!

I didn't land on my belly but I landed on my bum and with my knees up to my chest. Lower belly does hurt though because of the sudden pressure of being "crunched" together. I had no place to go with a wall behind me so I ended up in a ball and had to rolly polly my lard ass off the floor and onto all fours.

Ugh, I feel like such an IDIOT we were just talking about this chair going and I should have replaced it.

I think I startled the baby (THANK GOD I DIDN'T SNAP HIS DAMN NECK IN THE PROCESS!!!) but we got movement and no gush of water and no contractions. I laid down,the pain stopped ( think it was just shock pain) and the baby is still moving like crazy. I called the L&D and they told me that as long as I'm not having any symptoms then I'm okay and to just watch for them and come in if I have them. I'm perfectly fine with that since they said all they would do is check me for contractions (having none), listen to the heart beat (baby is moving so it's there) and ask me if I'm having any of the signs or symptoms (sharp pain, contractions, water breaking, ect...) So we did it over the phone I guess you can say.

She was really nice, took my name and number and is going to call back to check on me...hopefully not during the night. LOL

So I'm an idiot. LOL

Besides this sudden news, I was having bad contractions as the baby moved into place earlier this week and also got sick (along with two other kids) Dh also came home a day early so it's been pretty crazy around here.

Tomorrow we are going to head off in search of a Sonic so that I can gorge on ice. That's a whole other issue and a whole other blog. LOL

Hugs-Kat

    I'm glad to hear that you and baby are alright. I once sat on a stool and had it break on me. I injured my tailbone on it LOL. It wasn't even when I was heavy it was just an old stool. It wasn't at my house and I'd never sat on it before so how was I supposed to know it would break? Anyway, I'm glad you're doing alright and keep on doing so LOL. :)

THAT'S HOW WINNING IS DONE!

Monday, June 22, 2009

It's the last week of Round 1's Rocky Challenge.

And yes, I've already got the water works going on here.

I've had the hardest time blogging during this challenge. It has nothing to do with my pregnancy, it's my team.

It took about a week before I realized that I had been blessed with some of the most inspirational and motivational people I've ever come across. Every day I read a blog or comment and I'm moved. The thoughts run through my head but I just can't get them out. All I can do is absorb it all in and let it settle.

I think that most of us came into this challenge with the thought of losing weight or inches. No one had a clue about what it was all about and I made sure of that by not giving away details. It was never about weight and inches, it was about...I don't know, closing your eyes and jumping in, doing it not because you said you would but because in the end, you wanted to. I never wanted you all to see those work outs and instantly think, "I can't do that." I wanted you all to let go...give in, not give up. I wanted you to look at the challenge before you and I wanted you to think, reflect off each other and look back down and say, "I want to do this" I wanted you to let go of all the negative thoughts and give into something you had never done before. I wanted you to say, "Maybe I can never win but hell, I can go the distance, I can earn my own respect."

I didn't put you on my team, the Red team, because I thought it would put me ahead in this whole "game". I just randomly picked you and went with it. I'm glad for that, I couldn't have picked a better team. In the end I got what I aimed for, a group that didn't aim for the number but aimed for the dream.

Week one we made fools of ourselves by yelling out, "HEY, MY NAME IS ROCKY BALBOA!"

Week two we let it sink in and decided, "IT DOESN'T MATTER IF I LOSE THIS FIGHT CAUSE ALL I WANT TO DO IS GO THE DISTANCE."

Week three we knew what we wanted and demanded it from not only ourselves but from other's, "YOU WANT YOUR RESPECT, COME GET IT!"

Week four...

Well it's the last week, what can I say that you all haven't already said in the past 3 weeks?

We all know what we want and how to get it so this week, let's show ourselves, each other and everyone around us how it's done.

HEY, MY NAME IS ROCKY BALBOA!

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE NUMBERS!

THERE ARE NO EXCUSES!

YOU GOT TO TAKE THE CHALLENGE!

EARN YOUR RESPECT!

KEEP ON PUSHING!

GO THE DISTANCE!

"THAT'S HOW WINNING IS DONE!"-ROCKY BALBOA



Team Red, let's do it. Together, let's show them all how winning is done.

Hugs and love to you all!-Kat

    Kat, your challenge inspired me to push harder, dig deeper and expect more of myself than I thought possible. It was all about seeing myself in a new way - a stronger person than I ever imagined!! Thank you for inspiring me and leading me to see myself as a person who can go the distance, not to win the fight, but to just prove to myself that I did it.

    This blog (just like this challenge) is such an inspiration and is truly motivating. You're correct...I had no idea what I was in for when I signed up for this challenge; I just knew I needed something to help me re-focus. Thanks for this challenge and for being the type of team-leader who not only inspires and motivates, but dreams with us as we wage this war against what my daughter likes to call "The Fat-ness". She isn't making fun of people who have weight issues, just allowing those of us who do have these issues an opportunity to not take ourselves so seriously while taking our health and fitness concerns very seriously.

Thanks again!
You ROCK!

    I agree with Jenn! You took a bunch of people who may or may not have known each other (at least virtually) and lit a fire under us that made us all rally around and pull together. Sure, in the end we all want to lose weight or inches, but I have noticed from the comments, it's not the inches or the weight that most of us are so proud of...it's the simple fact that something inside is differnet, we have more endurance, we feel prouder of ourselves...all those things are way more important and way harder to come by than lost weight and inches!!

Kat, you are amazing!! And the RED team LOVES ya!!

MYSTERIOUSGRL25 6/22/2009 1:25AM

    Kat I think you acomplished something here and it's not a loss or a win for the team or anything like that...it's a spirit. Rocky running to the top of the steps in the movie...he wanted to prove he could do something becuase it seemed impossible. You embody the spirt of "Can Do' and really in the end of 4 weeks even if you didn't lose a pound but you tired, you've won. Because it's about not giving up even when it feels impossible. It's about trying your hardest to make a difference...sometimes in your own life, sometimes in someone elses. I think I can pretty much speak for everyone on the Red Team by saying you made a difference in each of our lives...maybe not for the same reasons, but for one reason or another special to each one of us as individuals and as a team. We can all say it doesn't matter if we win or lose, becuase it's not about that, it's about going the distance and in one week we can all say we did! Thank you!

No Phone call from the doctor.

Friday, June 19, 2009

Well, I have no phone call as of yet.

I was told that my doctor would be calling me on Monday if they found anything wrong with my urine. Well, no call means I'm CLEAR!!!

My blood pressure is normal and in a really good range. My swelling though is worse than ever. It never goes down, not even during the night. Good news is that it is only in my feet and ankles. Bad news...HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO PUT ON RUNNING SHOES LIKE THIS???

LOL

I'm not doing a lot of walking and that could be part of it but I am doing strength every day including Sundays (different types every day.) I finished up my 30 day Make it Habit Challenge which worked the Hips, Butt and Thighs and picked up another one which is exercises for pregnancy and birth. I have Kegels, Butterfly stretches (which I also add resistance to work the inner and outer thighs), Tailor Squat (which has my legs apart and my rear nearly on the floor I'm so low and boy can I feel the stretch and all!) and then the pelvic rock for my back.

So far I'm having a hard time with getting out of the tailor squat due to my knees and then also keeping my heels on the ground due to my lack of flexabilty and the swelling of my ankles. Everything else, so far so good!

I'm going to have to blog about my challenge team and the Rocky challenge but as of now I must say,

YOU WANT YOUR RESPECT?

COME AND GET IT!!!

Red team members will know what I'm talking about!

Hugs-Kat

    Wow! You're busy! Congrats on all the healthy changes. I just wanted to say, as far as swelling, I don't know how this works with pregnancy, you might want to ask a doctor first, but I have problems with edema in my ankles and feet, and a massage will actually help the swelling go down. You'd want to get it done by a reputable massage therapist who knows what they're doing, and again, clear it with your doctor, but I know it's helped me in the past - plus, who doesn't like a good massage?

Blood Pressure and Pregnancy

Saturday, June 13, 2009

Some may know that during my last two visits to the doctor my blood pressure was right on the verge of pre-eclampsia. This along with the swelling and other heart burn alerted the doctor and he put in a 24 hour urine test and a 5 day blood pressure monitoring.

Lucky to say, my weight isn't the issue. It seems to be that this issue effects 10% off all women regardless of weight so I don't have to have that one on my shoulder. I remember them really being concerned with it with my first one because it seems that young moms and first time moms are at higher risk. Even back then I was 101lbs at 12 weeks pregnant and had no morning sickness at all.

Anyways...

The good news is that I've had my blood pressure checked for two days now and it's been way good. They were getting readings of 139 and the such...now the readings are 110 and 116. I went to the store and got a reading of 126 and 124 and that was after nearly sprinting through the parking lot to do it because I was running late.

I found out that one issue could be the cuff that they are using. They have been using the smaller size cuff and it doesn't fit right. This can give a high reading. I'm now pretty sure that my high reading is due to this since I'm am continuing on like he advised with my normal eating and exercise. Plus I've read that bed rest won't lower your blood pressure even though it will bring down the swelling.

Now all I need is the urine test to confirm if there is protein in the urine or not. If not, I'm good!

Wish me luck!

Hugs-Kat

    Hey Kat!!!

Glad to hear that the blood pressure is good, it is always scary and I know that the last thing you want to do is to be put on bed rest, I would go crazy!! I was at that point and had to go on partial bed rest when I was prego with my son four years ago (can't believe its been that long already) and it was not fun, but you are right the bed rest will do nothing for the blood pressure, unfortunately......you just keep doing what you need to do and take it easy when you need to, no need to overwhelm or overwork yourself!! I am sending hugs to you and your baby!! Hope that all is well and I will talk to you soon!!

Hey, My name is Rocky Balboa

Tuesday, June 09, 2009

HEY, MY NAME IS ROCKY BALBOA...

That's right, my name is Rocky Balboa.

Yes, it may sound crazy but it's not, trust me. I like to call it “imagination”.

It's amazing what the mind can do. It's even more amazing what we keep the mind from doing. The things we block out as we go through life. One of those things is our imagination.

I believe it works. No, I know it works.

I remember as a child I use to "teach" my dolls and stuff animals. I would give them a question "What is 2 +2?" and I would write it on paper and then "show them" how to get the right answer. When I got older I kept that same concept and used it.

Some of you may have remembered a couple of weeks back when I was really, really pushing it. Alone in the gym, with only my music with me. I wanted to reach that goal, man I wanted to reach it. I walked into that gym repeating the words 4 miles, 7,000 (strides), 4 miles, 7,000. I got on the machine and visualized that machine panel reading those numbers. I put on my Rocky music (I actually start my Rocky music by shouting out "HEY, MY NAME IS ROCKY BALBOA!") and I was there in Philly going the distance.

Even more, when I felt the need to slow down, when I got tired I didn't stop with letting my mind take over. I told myself "You want to be tired, but you aren't. You aren't tired, you got a lot left." I imagined blood flowing through my legs that just wanted to stop dead right there. It flowed, swelled them into these huge muscles, and I imagined my legs moving faster and faster, light as can be, strong and not willing to give up...

And they didn't and I reached my goal.

When I'm in the gym I'm not alone. I've brought sparks friends with me. I've had them in the gym watching me, telling me to move and keep moving. I've imagined the words on my sparks page sprawled across the gym walls. I've been running up the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum with my man Rocky.

I honestly believe that if you can join me on this and really think, focus, believe and become Rocky Balboa, you can go the distance.

Read my sparkspage intro, watch the movie if you want and take from it what you can. Turn the story of Rocky into your own story.

For me, the story of Rocky Balboa becomes my story. The story of how one fat woman on the brink of being immobile for the rest of her life, took that step up the Philadelphia Art Museums entrance and began to fight her way through pain, emotional anguish, fear and 100 pounds of fat.

Now what's your story?

I'll help you every step of the way. I just need you to believe that you too can run those steps to your goal. Just say it with me...Hey, My name is Rocky Balboa.

Put on your gray sweat pants...
Slide on your black gloves...
Pull your cap over your forehead...
Lace up your shoes...
It's cold outside...
On the streets of Philly...
And now is your chance at the title...
Now is your chance to go the distance Rocky...

Hugs-Rocky Balboa

    Kat - I read that original blog when you published it (had NO idea what the Rocky Challenge was at that point!) and I was just amazed at how motivating it was! When I started The Challenge, I downloaded some Rocky music in the hopes that it would inspire me as much as it did you...and when it got tough all I had to do was think about you pushing yourself further than you thought you could while saying "Hey, MY name is Rocky Balboa"!!! Thanks for all you do!! It has pushed me further than I ever thought I could push!

I use it a lot when 4:30 comes and I dont want to get up and run. But I visualize what I want to feel like and look like and I just do it. And I haven't missed an a.m. workout in 57 days now!

    Kat,

It is amazing what the mind can do and even more amazing what our bodies can do.

Thanks for your hard work on this Challenge. It is appreciated.

We are working it, girlfriend!

Hugs,
Carol
