In Remission and doing well!

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

I have been in remission from breast cancer for about two months now. Since then, I have been working out almost on a daily basis. Walking, core rhythms, tae bo, the eliptical, biking, and turbo jam. I have changed my eating habits, incorporating more fruits and veggies and less fat. The scale hasn't moved, but my clothes are looser, and I look slimmer! There is life after cancer, and I am grateful for every day! emoticon

    Movement does make a big difference! Thanks for your comment! I was able to work mostly through my eight months of treatment, except for chemotherapy. I think that your friend who was able to work through her treatment for colon cancer is a superstar!

    Hooray! Physically moving and getting out makes a huge difference. I know a woman who worked out all through some major chemo for colon cancer! She was amazing. Keep moving, keep tracking!

Well, I've been out of the loop for a while, due to school starting back and my cat passing from lymphoma. I also have been having problems with my foot, plantar faciatis, so my exercise has been erratic. However, I did gain two pounds, then lost three! Yea! I have been trying to watch what I eat, and will now start tracking again.

After being told by my poditrist that I have plantar faciatis, and that the only exercises that I can do are biking, the eliptical, and swimming, I was stumped. The nearest swimming pool to swim laps in is 25 minutes away, and I don't have an eliptical. It has been too hot to bike, but I did so this morning! Yea! When i go to my next appointment, I will see if I can do yoga and pilates too.

Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk Team

Saturday, July 18, 2009

I have just started a team named Glimmer (as in glimmer of hope) for the Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk. It will take place at Marietta Middle School in historic Marietta on Saturday, October 10. I am looking for at least 10 team members, who can hopefully raise donations of $100 each. If we start now, we can raise the money! The walk will be between 1 to 3 miles. I would love for you to be on my team! Here is the link: http://memorywalk09.kintera.org/nwmetro/gl
immer. Friends and family are welcome to join too! The cause for Alzheimer's is close and dear to my heart, as one of my neighbors had it, and I saw the effects on him and his family.
