Getting back on track

Thursday, August 07, 2008

It has been about a month since I have really had time to dedicate to anything, let alone myself. I went on vacation in July to visit my parents. A little background behind my vacation is that my mother's doctor found a lump on her breast in June. They removed it at the end of July and assured her it was just a non cancerous cyst. Well, when the lab results came back, it was cancerous and they had to go back in and remove more tissue to be sure they got all of the cancer out. I went back to my parents house last weekend to give my mom some moral support and to just spend time with her to get her mind off of everything....her idea of getting her mind off of it was to take me shopping for my birthday....works for me!
The results finally came back and showed that they got all the cancer and she is clean now. She still has to go through 6 weeks of radiation, but they said all the cancer is gone. All prayers answered, now I have to refocus on myself.
I have not gained any weight, but I have not been losing weight either. I came back from my parents house Monday and am now sick. I was so looking forward to going to the gym Tuesday, instead, I went straight home and went to bed. Wednesday I stayed home sick and today I am feeling much better and hope that I can go to the gym for a light workout after work.

From this moment on, I am recommiting myself to my mission!!!!

It is time to focus on me again!

    I have moments like this - whether days, weeks, or months. You are incredibly strong and I am proud of you! I'm so glad your mom is on the road to recovery too -- how fantastic is that!!!! And how cool that you didn't gain any weight - in itself a minor miracle, don't you think? (it would be for me! :) ) Have a better week, feel better and best of everything going after your mission!
