Really, really serious.
See, I made a deal with god today. (No, not that one. Dr. god. Hence the lowercase 'g')
It was my three-month check in with them--they have a special post-tx CF clinic for all of us. The last time I went was the same day as Parade's final tech rehearsal. (That was a long day)
Anyway, today it was just me and god. We did the normal things--the rundown of the meds, checking to see if there were any complaints, basic exam, etc. Nothing too important.
Then we had a Chat (and made a deal).
See, before transplant, I weighed like nothing. (Check the photos in the May 06 archive if you don't believe me). Really, we're talking nothing. I couldn't wear size 0 clothes. It was bad.
Now...let's just say we don't have that problem.
Before t/x, exercise was supposed to happen, but, as things got worse, just existing was hard, so no exercise. And the exercise gene, in general, skipped me. My brother ran Boston in 2 hours in 54 minutes. Me? No. Running is a four-letter word to me. As Mia says in The Princess Diaries, "I'm a yoga girl."
Well...now I have to be more than a yoga girl, apparently. As you know from some previous posts, I have been trying to work on this. Now I have to work harder.
God wants exercise 5 days a week, at least 30 minutes at a time.
My initial reaction? Four letter words. That I didn't say.
Now I basically listen to everything she tells me to do, because she's god. But I really am not an exercise girl. I'm just...NOT.
But I have agreed to become one. I see Dr. A in the t/x clinic on June 23, and I imagine Dr. god would take a peek at my chart on that date. So.
We're going to make it happen. I think. Well, OK, it has to happen. I made a promise.
- So--BalletMet summer session starts early in June. I can do that.
- I have new workout shorts on the way (I didn't have any that weren't like a size -1), so I can work out in the incredibly hot apartment clubhouse gym and not die.
- I am downloading the rest of my CDs onto my iPod, so I will have a gym-worthy playlist.

Hope y'all are ready for some fun reading. At least all you have to do is read it!
