Weekly Updates, 4th of July, and ClassPass!

Happy 4th of July! I figured I’d do some catching up on the week since my blog posts have been a little more sporadic lately!

Jon and I went to Trivia on Wednesday night since Kickball was rained out! I’m still not totally feeling Kickball and am wondering why I decided I should venture out and try to meet new people. Besides, now that I’m pregnant, I feel like I should probably start trying to make more mom friends and less late 20s-early 30s people who are still partiers. Makes sense. I don’t party anyway. Trivia was fun, as usual, but it ended up lasting over 45 minutes longer than usual and then Jon and I just decided to head out at 9:45. I don’t even understand how you can make the exact same number of questions and songs take that much more time!

Thursday was an 11-7 workday! I haven’t gone in at 11 in quite awhile, but since I’m sleeping so bad in early pregnancy, I was so pumped. I had planned on getting up at 8 for the gym, but after hardly sleeping, that didn’t happen! Instead, I got up early to pack to spend the night at my mom and dad’s after work!

I got my ass handed to me at work that day. I was also really rude to a nurse I barely ever work with. Then I apologized profusely to the poor woman and told her how I’m pregnant and sleep about 4 hours a night total. And then I apologized about 10 more times before I left work. My patience is shot these days. And I really hate being rude to people but I seriously just feel like I can’t even help it right now. I’m trying so hard to reel it in now!

That night, I slept so good at my mom and dad’s! I felt like a brand new woman, although still tired, because I hear that’s what happens. But a full 6 hours of sleep! I felt like I won the lottery! I worked 7-3 on Friday, and then my supervisor let me go home 4 hours early. While I should never go home from work early since I don’t get maternity leave and need to save up, it was really hard to resist.

I had completely forgotten that Laura and I had plans after I got off work, but luckily, she had texted me right at 3 asking about getting together. She was off (you know, regular people are off work for the holidays), so we met up at my house. We ended up going to Costco to get cat food and then wanted to get sushi, but they were closed for FIVE days for the 4th! WTF. So we got tapas instead and I had the best freaking chicken empanada ever. Like, holy moly, it was delicious. Then we got ice cream. Of course. Because I eat ice cream like it’s my job.

I went back to my parent’s house after and hung out with my sister and nephew for a few hours. I slept there again last night, although my night of sleep was not nearly as restful as the night before. I was really hoping their house would be my good luck sleep charm and I’d just be moving in there till this insomnia passes, but now I’m not so sure.

I went to the gym this morning around 9. I hate going to other gyms (I use LA Fitness, which is a chain) because I don’t know where everything is, but I still got in a good workout. I usually max out now at about 40 minutes of gym time before I start feeling a bit nauseated since I tend to go on an empty stomach, but that feels like plenty of gym time for me right now.

I had breakfast over at my parent’s house and then showered and headed to Starbuck’s to meet up with Kassie for some wedding planning fun. We spent about three hours wedding planning and it was a lot of fun, actually. Planning her wedding is way more fun than planning mine was! Also, she was so excited about being an aunt soon! She has been really hoping I’d get pregnant soon and her reaction totally lived up to my expectations! It’s so awesome to be friends with people I’ve known for 15 years! I love having these people by my side for stuff like this and I really can’t wait till they all start having babies (but I think it’ll be a few more years for them!).

I came home after Starbuck’s, ate lunch, and then curled up in bed for awhile. Jon, Andrew (his friend), and I are going to head downtown soon to hang out with Crista and Billy for some fireworks from a rooftop tonight, so hopefully it’ll be fun. And hopefully the weather stays clear! I plan on sleeping at our house tonight and then just going over to my parent’s for dinner with Jon tomorrow night since Annie and Patrick are still in town. But, I plan on sleeping in (if my body lets me) and then getting in a longer gym session if I can.

In the last bit of news, I am even more excited about ClassPass now! They’ve signed with a CrossFit gym just across the street from my house, which is so awesome! They only offer noon classes and early morning classes, but I love noon WODs! Also, they have a few more new HIIT type places close to home that I can’t wait to try! While I love LA Fitness at times, I also really miss my HIIT! And most of the gyms on there are a little less extreme than regular CrossFit, but I’ve really been missing regular old CrossFit lately! So, I can’t wait to try this new CrossFit class on Wednesday afternoon! I figure once the baby comes, I’ll drop my ClassPass since childcare will be hard to come by at these studios, so I’m going to live it up for the next 34 weeks!

  1. Sorry that work has been so crazy! As if nursing isn’t already a stressful job, throw having to work around a holiday in there along with being pregnant and it is bound to happen. I’m glad you got to hang out with your high school friends like Laura and Kassie and have always thought it was so neat that you are still friends after all these years and being bridesmaids and going to each others weddings! I am hardly in touch with anyone I went to high school with and for good reason ;).

    I hope you get to go to Class Pass soon and do CrossFit! Don’t blame you to cancel it when the baby comes, and I’m not sure how gyms are there but many here have childcare and the fees aren’t that much, so hopefully you can still have a membership somewhere and go!

    • LA Fitness has childcare after the baby is 3 months from 8-12am! So I can still go on mornings off, and then I guess I’ll have to get used to the crowd in the evenings after work on other days! I don’t have many friends from college and the my adult life, so I’m glad I still have my high school friends! They’re really the only people I spend much time with!
