I am back BABY!!!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

To say the least the year 2012 was one of the roughest if not THE roughest in my life so far. Many many issues were dealt to me and my family. The past few months I stepped back from SP, needing to wrap my brain around the latest of my issues, chemotherapy. Did I feel sorry for myself, MOST DEFINITELY, but that TIME is OVER.
I am still doing chemo but my oncologist gave me the green light to exercise. He wants me to keep my strength up. I am allowed to exercise at home, no gym allowed due to the germs. I have regained some of my weight, so I am SPARKING to the fullest. I even have recruited my sister who lives in WV to SPARK with me. Even miles apart we will keep each other focused and motivated to do this together!!!

    I am so sorry - I am just jumping in on your story as well - I have not been around Spark lately enough to follow other people's blogs, etc. I am so sorry you have to go through all this, but how wonderful that you have so much support and such a wonderful attitude!

Here's to 2013 bringing you good health, strength, joy, and peace!

    Glad you are back! I am on chemo also; I have to really push myself to exercise on some days, but I think in the long run, it helps a little with the fatigue and also the pain issues.
