This Week

May 24, 2010

I am SO looking forward to this Thursday. Two things will happen on Thursday:
1. I get wanded. Not exactly something to look forward to but I hope to find that my cyst is gone and we can cycle again. So everyone cross your fingers for me.
2. My pool opens! My neighborhood pool opens for the season and I could not be more excited about this.

Sitting by the pool in the sun is the single most relaxing thing I can think of (with one exception – sitting by the ocean in the sun and listening to the waves). And I NEED to relax. My dreams of late are proving to me that I’m far more stressed than I realize. I’ve been plagued by all sort of anxiety drenched dreams lately. Zombies. Graduation. Wedding (mine – gah!).

Not only do I need my pool to open so I can relax, I also need it so I can exercise. I love to swim. I’m like a fish in the water (and I’m a Pisces – coincidence?). So swimming is my preferred method of exercising. Particularly lately. I’ve been so crampy from the drugs and now the cyst that that swimming feels like the only thing I can do. I was swimming at a gym but I ran out of free passes and it’s an expensive gym so I’ve just been anxiously awaiting the opening.

So despite the fact that Momz, in all her infinite wisdom, has advised me NOT to swim, I can’t wait to jump in the water and swim my little heart out. So what if swimming is not a weight bearing exercise and won’t do anything for my bone health to prevent osteoperosis? It’s still good exercise. I just have to remember to also lift some weights or something.

Thursday. Thursday morning I get wanded. Thursday evening I swim. Is it Thursday yet? Are We There Yet?
