I haven’t forgotten about you all. I have BIG news that I can’t share just yet, but I am bursting at the seams to do so. Life has been more than chaotic lately but in a few weeks I hope to fill you all in.
On another front, I haven’t been running, and my weight hasn’t been dropping. In fact, I gained a few pounds (gasp). I pretty much hate myself for it, but I know where I can improve and Im making efforts to change it.
The first is starting to run again. I ran/walked a 5k with coworkers last weekend, and I registered for the Princess Half again in 2015 to keep me motivated! I’ve committed to one race a month for the remainder of the year. Next month? A costume run is in the works!
More soon, I hope!!! Eeeeek
I am alive. I started a new career shortly after the half marathon, and I have had a hard time balancing life since then.
My spleen is re-enlarged and I am struggling with the classic lymphoma symptoms again. I was hospitalized the week before last with neutropenia and I am still struggling every time I try to eat.
The cancer center is currently telling me there is not much they can do to help me until the lymphoma decides to take over. I am tired, defeated, and frustrated.
I will try to be better about my updates, because there is so much good in my life that I hate to focus on the crap parts.
I hit one year post op this week, and I am nowhere near goal but I am almost down 100 pounds and that is still a huge accomplishment. My next goal is to get under 200 pounds and to run again. My foot is still fractured so for now I am just walking/swimming.
I did it. I ran a half marathon. Barely. But I did it. WE did it. LMM and I did it together. I couldn’t have done it without her. It was the hardest thing I have ever done and there were so many things that I could have done to improve, but those will be the lessons learned.
