You know, it was strange; once I hit the four-week post-surgery mark, to the day, I started to feel a ton better. Just a ton. It was like someone turning on a light switch. I was able to clean stuff and be a little more involved with the kiddos. Which made my mood much better. In fact, I felt so much better emotionally that I didn't even need to pick up that bump-up to my depression meds.
A week ago was my six-week checkup, and everything looked great. I'm not going to say everything felt great, because do gynecological checkups ever feel great? No. No, they don't. Am I right, ladies? So I got the go-ahead to start working out!! And to lift up my two-year-old again!! He's very happy to have the lifting-up in his life again.
I went to spinning class for the first time two nights ago, and then I went again last night. I'm just a leetle saddle-sore today! Haha! But it went really well, and it felt terrific to be "in the saddle" again.
Ben got me some spinning shoes for Christmas, and they were a little scrunchy in the toes, so I went today and got a size larger. They feel perfect, and they're gorgeous:
Anyways, I am feeling almost at 100%. I'd say maybe 85%. I get tired more often and have to take more "breaks" throughout the day, and every now and then I feel crampy in my abdomen, but on the whole, I feel like a whole new woman. Thank heavens.
