Week 13

Well, I very quickly found myself back at the OB’s office this week, even though I was just there last week. This may be a bit of an overshare, so I’m sorry in advance. I was sitting around the house on Sunday and I noticed that I was having some discomfort….down there… It wasn’t horrible, by any means, I just knew that it didn’t feel right. It was somewhat of a burning sensation with some itching. I went to the bathroom to check it out and my discharge literally smelled like ammonia. That was the first smell that came to my mind. I knew something wasn’t right. And of course, who do I look to for all of the answers, Dr. Google. Seriously, don’t do this. Your end result is basically that you are dying. Given my symptoms, I diagnosed myself with bacterial vaginosis. All of the symptoms were there, I just needed to go to the doctor so they could confirm it for me. I called first thing Monday morning and was able to get in around lunch time. They did a culture and tested for essentially everything they could and they said I would know in about 48 hours. I figured I wouldn’t hear something until Thursday and I was right. I got the call Thursday morning that I was fine. The culture came back all negative. It was a relief. I still had a concern because there was still some discomfort. They just prescribed me with a topical cream to help with the burning and itching.

We got out family pictures taken this past weekend as well. They turned out amazing. Here are just a couple:

Friday, August 5

Strength – I only worked up to 75# which is about 60% of my 1RM. Anything more than 75# and I have to jump too much to get under the bar.

5min EMOM
2 @ 80%
MetCon – we have 4 rowers at the gym, there were 6 guys and me there that day. I ended up just rowing by myself. The workout only called for one individual to row 5x250m which is 1250m and I ended up rowing 1500m. I have no idea what I finished in. I didn’t record my time.
Partner Row
10 – 250m

Until next time–
