Only 8 weeks to go to my birthday! Yikes! I can’t believe it. The year has gone so fast. It only feels like a couple of weeks since I started this blog to keep a record of things.

So anyway, here are some updates:

Go to Italy: Last time I updated I thought I’d be going, but it looks as if I’m not going to be able to make it to my friend’s wedding in September. Some things have come up and I’m going to have a party on that day instead. Also, one of my other friends there is pregnant and due at the end of December, so I’ll probably take a trip next year anyway!

Get fit and healthy: I just had another informative chat with my doctor today (well, actually this time it was!) and I found out I’m a bit anaemic, which explains a lot. On the major plus side, I’ve managed to lower my cholesterol level by 1.2!!!!! He was really surprised! My running programme is also going well. I surprised myself today by being able to run for 6 minutes. Wonder Boy has pointed out that soon I’m going to have to get a bigger loop to run. The aim is to be able to run for 30 minutes by my birthday.

Have sex: I had my 1st pain-free experience with the 2nd dilator yesterday. I was so happy! I’m also still using the 3rd one as well, but I haven’t gone any further than half-way with it. I did psyche myself up to make an appointment with the gyn though and it’s in 5 weeks time.

And….I’ve decided to retrospectively add another resolution. I just knew 9 was too odd a number to have! So, Resolution Number 10: go camping at a music festival! I’ve never been camping and we bought out tent on Saturday, probably one of the wettest days of the year so far. The festival is in 2 weeks time and I just hope it stays dry.   🙂

Part 20: Baby Steps

July 12, 2010 at 6:26 pm (baby steps, cholesterol, Dilators, health, jogging, Making the most of your time, relationships, resolutions, running, sexual dysfunction, Summer, Things to do before you're 30, Vaginismus) (, , )

If learning to walk was this difficult, I’m glad I don’t remember it! However I’ve finally managed to make some progress with the 3rd dilator. I’ve got it nearly half way in 3 times. I’ve been doing some special breathing exercises while doing it and they seem to be helping. I WILL make another appointment for the gyn soon, but I need to psyche myself up a little first!

Another baby step I’ve made is a decision to learn how to jog. I want to be able to jog for 30 minutes. I’ve started a simple training plan. To be honest, I could have started on week 3 because I already walk a lot, but I’m starting at the start! Wonder Boy came with me today and made me run more and walk faster than ever!

Watch this space .  🙂
