I made it! 

I’ll have a nice scar at some point, but the cancer cell was completely cut out. The healing process can officially start and hopefully I’ll get life back on track.

Week 21… I’m flipping stressed out! 

Of course what comes with stressing out? For me it’s eating… and lots of it, especially ice cream. This week has been hard as I learned the specific thing that’s wrong with my face along with the procedure that has to be done. 

On Tuesday morning I will have a small procedure called Mohs (pronounced Moze) done on my nose to remove the small cancer cell growing there. I’m a little nervous and scared but i know that I’ll be fine. 

I’ve been stressing about it all week. Will they get it all in one pass? How deep will it be? How bad will the scar look? I know it’s for my better health but I can’t help being concerned. 

Due to the stress of it all, I ate a ton of ice cream… a ton… at least that’s what the scale is telling me. I did work out three times last week but it wasn’t enough. Once I get this over with then my focus can begin again. 

I know that I want to continue my journey and that’s why I keep writing this blog. I don’t mean to upset or depress anyone. I just need to keep writing to make sure that I keep on track. 

I feel like a politician with all the promises I’ve made, but I will get back on track. I will start this journey again and continue the wonderful progress that I’ve made so far. 

Have a great week!

Week 20… Not doing my best… But I’m getting better!

So for the past couple of weeks I have been dealing with something that I didn’t want to really want to tell anyone. It has been affecting me quite a lot even though it shouldn’t have. 

The issue has been plaguing me for the last couple of weeks. I lost my motivation and the struggle to move some days. I didn’t want to workout. I just wanted to come home and do nothing. 

I had a sore on my nose that didn’t want to heal. It was there for quite awhile. I was scared to face the reality of what it could be. I knew in my mind what it was but didn’t want to hear the words. Finally I made an appointment with a dermatologist. She confirmed my fears. 

It was cancerous. We did a biopsy and discovered that it was a simple basal cell cancer. This is the best case scenario that I could have hoped for. It isn’t malanoma so that’s a relief. Next Tuesday I’ll have the cell removed from my nose. 

I already started going back to the gym since I now have a sense of relief. 

I’ll keep you posted on how I do for the rest of the week. 

Have a great week.

Week 19… Not quite the week I wanted…

So this week was a short work week since it was Labor Day on Monday, which meant a lot to do and not much time to do it in. Going back to work after being off for ten days is rough. So much stress and putting out tons of fires. Not too mention I still had to train my new hires. 

There was a lot of things to do and so many things to focus on that my workouts took a back seat. I only went running on Wednesday at the park which felt great but that’s all I did. I’m going to work on getting back on track.

Here’s the training plan I’m going to do this week:

Sunday – Rest

Monday – Running

Tuesday – Cardio/Ellipitical

Wednesday – Running

Thursday – Rest

Friday – Running

Saturday – Running

Sunday – Cardio/Ellipitical

This will be my plan for a few weeks. I’m resting on Thursday because I’m in a bowling league on Thursday night and I found out last year that if I worked out before bowling, then my bowling games suffered. I’m going see how that works out for me and if I don’t get the results I’m looking for I’ll look for some adjustments. I know I can’t pound my knees everyday and I want to get outside as much as I can while the weather is still good. 

I hope you all have a good week.

Have a great night!

Week 18… Vacation= Pizza & Fries!

So last week after my greatest accomplishment of reaching the 30lbs loss and then I took a week off. I decided I needed a break from the weight loss journey. Not only was on vacation from work (which is my last one until the end of the year for those who were wondering) but a week off from all the strict regimes that I was putting myself through.

So I did gain weight while I was on vacation and who couldn’t when mostly every day the main meal was a variety of pizza and fries. I love pizza and fries but I think I’m over them for a while.  Even on my cheat day, I think I’ll cut back.  Too much of a good thing can be too much of a good thing, except money… LOL.

I only ran twice last week and broke my streak of how many days in a row I made my step goal. I know have to start that over along with my workouts. I’m hoping that I’ll get back into the swing of things.

I also hope that I’ll be able get back on track with my eating habits. I look at this opportunity as the second round of my program. I had 17 successful weeks, took a break and will now begin my second round of 17 weeks which will take me right up to the holidays.

Wish me luck!!!

Have a great week everyone!
