Hooray for 2014 and Exercise

2014 you have no idea how excited I am that you are here.  I'm excited for new adventures, lots of running with my gramin and the new me.  Yes a new me as in the one who lost all of her muscle because of hospital stays, a cancer diagnosis and chemo is ready to get back to the old me.  I have lifted weights since my second year of grad school.  It is addicting and something I love.  Unfortunately I have been out of the weight lifting realm for the past 7 months.  I did a little during chemo, but because of my down weeks during chemo I wasn't able to get on a schedule.  I am excited to get back to my regular exercise routine.  Besides my sugar addiction, my other favorite addiction is exercise.  I may not look like it, but I do love a good hour or two at the gym.  Yesterday Alisha and I went on an 8 mile bike ride.  It felt so good once I warmed up with 3 hats on my head.  Today my butt bone is sore, but a good sore.  For the first time in a year and a half I was able to swim with no attachments.  I felt like a kid in the pool today swimming laps.  The best thing about swimming is that I have no hair to worry about.  So for the next few weeks I'm going to swim as much as I can before going to Phoenix.  Hopefully there I will find a gym that has a pool.  I so much enjoyed the strength training class after swimming today as well.  I am excited for Tuesday for my first cycle class of 2014.  I love cycle it gives you adrenaline like no other exercise.  So here is to 2014 when I can get my old body back, even though I'm sure my abdomen will never be bikini worthy after all it went through in 2013.
