well, after doing so well this week (waking up at 5am for workouts monday-wednesday) I gave in this morning. something about not having enough sleep/making up for it in eating a ton made me call it quits. so, tomorrow, the two weeks of working out in the AM starts yet again. I may not get new running shoes/my BOB till summer at this rate (i can already see Mr. D cheering in the background. not because he wants me to fail but because he will be happy to keep that money earning interest in the bank for the next few months at least. and not that i blame him). also the thought of taking on a half marathon in april is slowly going down the tubes... june is looking like my best bet to hit the starting line in one piece, sanity intact, with confidence.
also on the docket? my pump just got recalled. the second one i've received has had a few minor problems (like the tubes falling out of where they belong after i steam clean them) and the one before that had a clicking sound... but what else am i supposed to get if i send it back to medela?
i am lucky that my pump is working fine for now but i do i really want to keep using a pump that will (probably) just crap out on me (again)?
is there a better pump out there?
i just don't know. maybe i'll just call this whole pumping thing quits.
then again, that (like "just" quitting my job) invites a whole new slew of problems, mostly financial. and i'm not sure i am ready to deal with starting formula.
