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.
I'm a daughter, sister, favorite auntie, friend, physician assistant, lover of candy, tulips, fruit, a good salad, traveling adventures, a good book, style, flip flops, spinach shakes, Boise State Football and cooking, who happened to be diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in June 2013 and will fight like no other to live a positive, happy, vibracious, exciting life as a survivor and overcomer!
