Week 24… 6 months in! Motivation is back!

I know last week I was complaining about not being able to find my motivation but I think I found out after I had a solid workout for once.

This past week I went to the gym on Monday…Tuesday…Wednesday…Friday and Sunday. The past 4 previous workout sessions during the week were just boring and plain. I seemed to just be going through the motions. Sunday’s workout was different.

I went to the gym on Sunday after watching football. I really had a good session. I felt great doing it and then strong after i finished. I remembered how well it felt to push myself hard. Really got a great sweat going. That is what i needed to get my motor running again.

I can’t believe it took me this long to get back on track. I know that my skin cancer sidelined me for a few weeks, but I’m a survivor so upward and onward I go.

I already have started planning how I’m going to attack this week and plan on seeing a difference on the scale this upcoming Saturday. I can’t wait!

How are you going to make a difference this week?
Have a great night!

Week 22… I’m on the mend still

Hey there everyone! I wanted to let you know that I’m still on the mend from my surgery. I’m finally starting to feel better and next week I’m going to start working out again. 

I’m taking this week off even though I am doing a 5k on Saturday and then a breast cancer walk on Sunday. 

Let’s hope that next week is better. 

Have a great week

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.
