Transformation post for BLC18


Sunday, January 29, 2012

Posting this blog for the BLC18 weekend challenge. I'm supposed to tell you about my transformation in health/fitness/wellness. So here it is...

Every since I was diagnosed with cancer for the yet the third time, my fitness has taken a significant dive. The chemo makes me very tired and doing my marathon training is very much out of the question. I walk, sometimes with the dogs, but even holding their leashes and walking wipes me out. I walk anyway, it is good for my heart and it is good to keep my muscles from atrophy.

I'm getting ready to be put in captivity in the hospital for 100 days minimum for my transplant, so I have to go in as strong as I can, and so I've been trying to do push ups and other upper body strength training that I can do while sitting down, or on the floor, that way I don't have to expend energy keeping myself balanced too.

So much for a transformation, this year was supposed to be the year I get back in shape, and complete my dream of running the Dublin marathon. But I'll just be lucky to make it through the year. The Dublin marathon will be there in years to come.

    I'm so sorry that I didn't read this and respond sooner. You are inspiration. I had no idea that you were getting ready to go into the hospital, the way you've been giving your all as a Bombshell. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Ellie, I'm sorry I'm just reading this now -- I tried to keep up with everyone's Transformation blogs, but was afraid I'd miss a few. God love you, you've been such a trooper, and an important part of the LBB's! My prayers are with you as you go into the hospital, and I look forward to cheering you on when you're finally able to tackle that Dublin marathon! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Mrs A, all you can do is your best, nd you're sure doing it. Dublin will be there when you're ready to meet it with all your discipline and strength focussed on that goal. In the meantime, know that we're all pulling and praying for you - I know that you can get through this.

    You have been and continue to be in my prayers. I had no idea you were getting ready to go into the hospital for 100 days. You are doing the best that you can and I applaud you for signing up and sticking with the BLC18 challenge. The Bombshells love you and will support you through thick and thin! Big Hugs!!!

    I am still praying for you. I think of you often and check in here or on blogspot to see if you have posted. You were such a help when my DH was going thru his cancer treatment.

Stay strong and fight back - you will banish Riley this time! Take a laptop or smart phone with you and keep us posted when you can.
