Back after a year of hell...

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

so... what can I say, life got really sh*tty really fast for me a year ago. I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma about this time last year. After surgery, four months of chemothereapy, weight gain, I am more that ready to get my body back.

For those of you still around, I hope to be able to reconnect :)

I am really needing some help to stay on track, and I hope this will help once again!

    Welcome back :) I hope all will start to go in the right direction. It's no fun when things go in a direction that you don't have control over, you just have to makr\e the best of what you can till it rides itself out and you can take control back over, which sounds like you are to that point.

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Just wanted to let you all know I still don't know whats going on. I am on my 3rd type of painkillers to try to ease the pain, but I still hurt. CT has been marked urgent, so just waiting for the call. Waiting for the results of an aspiration aas well. Waiting waiting waiting is what ive been up to!

I did get sick and tired of doing nothing so I have started walking on the treadmill. It doesn't hurt anymore to do it, so why not!

Hopefully I will have some anwers soon!

whats going on with me... nothing good

Monday, May 16, 2011

Ok, as some of you may have noticed by my status updates, things are not good at the moment. I figured I should take a few minutes to fill you all in.

I am right now not working out at all... its driving me mental, serioulsy going crazy here, but I can't. I have found a lumpy bumpy thing in my collarbone area and its very painful. I have found that it is just to painful to do anything with, hence the workout going down the drain for now. I have been to the doctor, the good news is we ruled out and infection of some sort (like a gland or lymph node), but the bad news is we don't know what we are dealing with.
In the last few weeks since I noticed the lump, it has gotten progressivily more painful (I know have pain meds), and there is a second lump. Today I was back for a follow up and I have been refered to a sugeon for a biopsy, which I see thursday, and for a CT scan.

I was hoping to be able to get back on track soon, but its not looking that promising right now. I am still trying to eat well, but not everyday goes as planned, such as today!

Well thats me in a nutshell right now, just hanging in waiting to see whats going on.

Thanks to everyone for the continued support :)

    Whoa that has got to be scary, not knowing what the bump is. I hope the test and CT Scan come back negative for anything serious and I hope the bump/pian can be resolved. I can sympathize about the pain interfering. Pain can be debilatating and depressing. I got pain med from my doc yesteray for a cyst on my toe joint inside, it has kept me from walking most all last week. Waiting for an MRI to confirm that it is a cyst and if I need surgery.
Maybe you could still do some lower body workouts?

Hang in there and you are doing great on the challenge! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wishing you all the best. Once you know what you're dealing with then you'll know where you go from here. It's sometimes the unknown that is the worst. Take care of you.

    The most important thing right now is to find out what you are dealing with; once you know that, you can put your action plan in place and get back on track with diet and exercise. It sounds like you've done the right things so far - doctor, referrals, specialists. Don't stop asking questions until you have your answers.
I'll be thinking of you this week, and sending all my positive vibes across the Prairies and over the Rockies right to you.

12 days down... 18 to go!

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Almost at the halfway point in my clean eating challenge. It has been going good. I thing here or there has not been the best choice, but overall I am happy with what im doing. And im loving the results!! I am down 5 lbs already!! I just hope the weight keeps on comming off, its so nice to watch the scale move down.

For the first time in so many years I couldn't tell you, I weigh the same as my hubby... NOT MORE!!! This is very exciting for me!

Still doing the running program, in the middle of week 3 right now, getting tougher but im still pushing through. One thing I have noticed though is that I don't have the energy or drive to do much in the way of strenght training right now. I think the running is taking more out of me than I first thought. Hopefully that will be able to come back into play soon!

    Ahh sounds like you're doing great!!! And i totally understand that exciting feeling - i have always weighed heavier than my hubby and the day i got to the SAME weight i felt like having a party LOL!!! A few months down the line, now i weigh a whole 14lbs less than him, and the gap's getting bigger, i still can't believe it! Makes me feel it's the way it SHOULD be and his clothes being big on me, ohh yeah!! x
