Well, yesterday was a kind of busy day and a lifestyle buster! My mother in law is a food pusher. We go there every Sunday and she feels that she MUST have a sugary food, cookies, cake, ice cream. How do you say no? Oh we have tried but then you can tell that she is a bit crushed. Especially when she makes the cookies and the cake and she buys strawberries for the ice cream. Well I am an addict to the pusher, I admit it. So this was the first of my downfall. Then later, well I just had to have some potato chips. Then dinner was more of a foraging experience. And that was it. I didn't even try to write it all down, I know that I was over, I know that it was a bust of a day. But today I am back on track. Working the plan for myself and trying to keep stress free. Sometimes during construction we have to stop and make sure we are doing things right and usually the workers take Sunday's off. All is not lost!

It was an old Dolly Parton song which seems so fitting today! But, my cancer journey is over and I can get back to "normal" life! This time both my husband and I are on the healthy journey. It isn't a "weight loss" journey as much as a fight cancer so it never comes back again! The great thing is that we are doing it together and that part I like a lot. So, I am back to sparkpeople because I know that I can do this with the support that I get from here plus, what can I say, it is FREE! This time it isn't just about the weight, this time it is about LIFE! Hang out with me and see what happens.

Well, I was working the weight watchers program, and doing fairly well. Then, I noticed the "dimpling" in my breast! Being a nurse I pretty much knew what was going on. I called my doctor and he said, "That is a change!" in less than a year from my mammogram in December. Well, in 23 days I had an answer, Breast Cancer. Started chemo in October and after some complications, I have a new oncologist and new chemo regimen. What I am finding out on my own, is the importance of diet during the chemo treatment. Cancer thrives on fructose and sugar! Organic is truly the way to eat. Eating is most important when on chemo, it is very easy not to eat because often nothing sounds good to eat. Protein low or healthy fat proteins are important. Sometimes vegetables and fruit may be difficult but eating these is still important.
I'm not in the market to necessarily lose weight but to maintain during chemo. A little exercise and positive energy. Wish me luck!

So, today I am following my routine, getting things in order and following my plan! I do have a plan. This afternoon I started to feel like I was hungry, really turned out that I was probably needing some water, so I got myself a tall glass of water and I have been sipping on that! Yay! Exercise wise, I walked the dog for 15 to 20 minutes and later took a short bike ride. After dinner I plan to work out on the elliptical if I don't walk the dog again!

So, I haven't been on Sparkpeople for about a month but that doesn't mean I haven't been taking care. I haven't been perfect but I walk daily and I work on keeping on track, not always the right choices but for the most part not so bad. I haven't lost but I haven't gained either. So now, after getting oriented in my new job, I am back on track and ready to get going. I purchased "THE SPARK SOLUTION" more as a jumpstart and I am ready to go tomorrow. Not necessarily following the foods for the day but plugging mine in and staying within my calories then I am doing their workout in order to really get me started as opposed to just walking the dog. I have about 30 more pounds to lose and I will get this done! I hope to have this accomplished by December!
