Chemo is over...I think I will get the thumbs up for being in remission Monday.

My goals of strength training and swimming are getting done.

I am hoping to make some gains...or losses actually...soon.

A cyst...I thought...a cyst...end of November a little over a month after my last post I was diagnosed with a HUGE cancerous tumor in my uterus. On December 29th I had a radical, abdominal hysterectomy and in January began treatment.

Today, June 17 I am partway into round 1 of 5 of chemotherapy...can exercise and go up and down the stairs without getting out of breath!!

Thanks!!

I am in pain today...probably a cyst on my left ovary.

It is hard to eat right and exercise when you are in pain...

I have been sick...battling stomach pains...since the dr visit...it seems I can't get enough sleep and have only made it to the gym once a week.

I am disappointed in myself...but that isn't helping my frame of mind.

Right after joining the Gym two weeks ago "Murphy" struck and our whole family was sick. So...

I made the decision I wasn't going to let that stop me...as soon as I felt better I got back in the pool and on the treadmill.

Going to check out a yoga class today if I can get myself around the mental corner of doing something new...

Wow!! I saw 163.4 this morning!!! I've been able to exercise and get somethings done...

It is still a push though...I would rather just stay in bed and not function...safer...easier...

I've thought about counseling but that would be one more thing to do, and one more person to fail for

I got a lot of sorting done last night! Feeling encouraged. I have books to take to a consignment shop and to goodwill tomorrow.

Hormones were kicking my butt last night...just felt like I was going to explode..stayed home alone today...the quiet was nice.

This week we have Painting trim to do, that should get me some fitness points. ;)

Today is a new day...drizzly and lots of work to do...

Main goal today is to keep on, not sit and do nothing. To accomplish this I am going to work for 30 minutes and then reward myself by reading in a quiet corner.

I'll let you know how it goes.

My sister gave me a coffee mug on a sisters weekend on Mother's day. I like the sayings.

5 ways to Love. 1. Speak without accusing. 2. Give without sparing. 3. Listen without interrupting. (I think I can work on this one). 4.pray without ceasing. 5 Answer without arguing. Have a great 4th of July emoticon

We never know what life brings. to us. I wish you well. My only son is married and I have two grandchildren. I didn't really have to get through menopause due to hormones after surgery.
Spark place seems like w good place to share. Let's continue on with the. Journey and strive for better health.

and I am choosing to go with it!

As a mom to many that is in the final stretch of child rearing, life can be a challenge. I have marrieds with children, marrieds no children, dating, not married, single helping a married sister etc, etc

My life is changing, I have no preschoolers, only 3 teens. And 3 in elementary school.

As I age, I am noticing aches and pains, I am not moving as fast or as graceful as I used to...and being a natural born klutz that is scary. emoticon

Menopause is in partial swing, not hot flashes but I can tell my body knows not what it is doing.

So as I embark on this adventure I want to keep a diary/journal of my ups and downs along the way.

As I journey along this new path you are free to join me, as a quiet friend or one with words of support. Warning, I am healing and very fragile. I feel like all my core memories are lost and I am rebuilding many islands, slowly, step by step, even if they are baby steps.
