Holy WORKOUT Batman

*** I met to post this Saturday- Oops!***

I've been doing Slim in Six for the past (almost) two weeks.  I've actually even seen results (even on the day that I consumed approximately 127 Animal crackers... I kid you not!)

Yesterday I was so exhausted, I took a two hour nap from 4-6, and then went back to bed at 9:30 and slept another 12 hours.  Needless to say, working out didn't happen yesterday.  I usually take my break days on Sunday, and to prevent beating myself up over skipping a day, I decided Friday was my rest day, and I'll work out on Sunday.  So I woke up this morning, got up (after looking at blogs for over an hour...), updated and posted a blog, and went to go get my dvd going.

Holy Hell!  I was so proud of my self on Thursday for being able to do all the 'leg' moves on my right leg, (still couldn't do them on my left 100% of the way, but what can I expect from a knee that has gone through FIVE knee surgeries).  Today was a COMPLEATLY different story.  I didn't get 20 minutes into my workout and I thought I was going to die (the same workout I've done for 4 days in a row and have NEVER felt like this).  Usually I can rest for 2 or three reps and then pick right back up.  Not today.  I started shaking, got light headed, even felt like I was going to throw up.  I finally gave up, and stopped. 

As I've said before, I think that we have both mentally checked out of this cycle, so I haven't been looking for pregnancy symptoms... until this morning.  I googled 'lightheadedness' and 'pregnancy' and holy hell, Dr. Google said that lightheadedness could be a pregnancy sign, along with tiredness!  Why these didn't slap me upside the head before now, I don't know.  SOOO.... I really hope that today was just a glitch in my workout, because I actually am enjoying doing them.... unless it means that I'm pregnant, and then my hope is that the stupid lightheadedness sticks around for nine months!  (note- I felt like I was going to pass out while unloading the dishwasher, and vacuuming... literally, almost fell had it not been for Trav and/or the wall that caught me.)

Oh well, we shall see in the coming days.


  1. a dizzy, light-headed feeling was what tipped me off that someone was growing in my body :)

  2. hi there - just stumbled on your blog - hope you don't mind if I follow your journey! I also do slim in 6 and alternate that with Tracy Anderson Mat workout -- I like that Slim in 6 really makes me sweat it out and Tracy's video helps with all the toning and targeting - hoping your 2WW ends on a high note!!
