When you hit a bump in the road

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

The past week has been a bit rough. I am still recovering after surgery where they removed the kidney tumor. I was dealing with a pinched nerve in my neck, and the GI bug at the same time.
I talk a little about it here

Today, I am feeling alittle better. I just wish I could get around without pain in my arm or back. Luckily, the GI bug is almost gone, and my appetites is almost back to normal :)

Just ready for normal to be back.

Question for you:
how do you handle a "bump in the road"

    This past winter my son ended up in the hospital for a few days and then a week after that my daughter was rushed to the hospital with an emergency fake appendectomy and a month later she went in for open heart surgery. I think the only thing that you can do is get back on track as soon possible and keep plugging along eating as healthy as possible. It was really hard to eat healthy during my total of 2.5 weeks in the hospital with the kids and it always feels so much harder to get back on track when you are derailed. Good job for sticking in the game with so much going on! Best wishes on your journey.

Also I host a fitness and accountability group on Facebook. Itís a private group where we check in, keep each other accountable and encourage one another on our journeys! Because it is private what you post in the group doesnít show up on your regular feed. I would love for you to join us. If you would like you can either message me your email address and I can add you that way (we donít have to be FB friends if I add you by emailÖ.. OR you can find me on Facebook and add me as a friend ( Once you add me as a friend I can add you directly to the group. I hope you join in!!

Healthy Living: week one

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Just a little over a month ago, I was diagnosed with Kidney Cancer. It was scary and worrisome, but now it is time for recovery and healthy living. It definitely opened my eyes to the reason I want to get healthy. It isn't JUST about losing weight and eating healthy, but being a WHOLE healthy person. I want to be here a long time. I want to be healthy for me, for Andrew, and for my kidney :)

Feel free to follow along with me, week one is complete and I feel pretty good about it :)

Kidney Cancer

Tuesday, April 08, 2014

Oh my gosh I can't believe I haven't posted on here for over a month. WELLLL a lot has happened. First, I was going through some GI testing, when they weren't sure about one of the studies, they ordered an CT scan. And that is when my world changed. They found a mass on my kidney, and ordered an MRI. You can start reading ALL about it here!

(lots of tests. lots of arm bands. haha)

(cards after surgery)

Please got check it out! Over the past few weeks on my blog I talk about surgery and recovery! I will be back tomorrow for my plan of attack for beginning my NEW healthy life :)

Question for you:
What is one thing you are doing today that is apart of your healthy life?

    Hugs! I'm so sorry for all you have been through. So, I did read some of your blogs but I didn't see the outcome of your MRI. Was it cancer or was it not? I certainly hope not. Part of my healthy life is working out.

    I was so excited to get one from my hubby for Valentine's Day. Unfortunately I was never able to get it to sync to my home computer. Days of communicating with customer service via email proved unsuccessful so I had to return it. I was so disappointed. I hope it works well for you. Have fun with it.
