New Month's Resolution!
Tuesday, September 29, 2009
Well, I am putting it into words, so I am going to stick to it! I am making some resolutions for October to keep myself motivated and active on SparkPeople!
1. I will huddle with at least 5 teams/day!
2. I will blog once a week!
3. I will work on doing physical activity (even if it is only a few minutes) 3 times a week!
This chemo is still kicking me down and, as a result, I have found myself on the depressed end of happyville. I don't like it. My brother feels that I am entitled to feel a little down every now and again, but, quite frankly, it got to the point where I was crying every day -- and sometimes, not able to stop.
So, what caused this change? My boss sent a book of quotes to me about a month ago. The book is called "Hope." It is a pretty little pink book that sat on my nightstand until, one day, after crying my eyeballs out, I decided to actually read some of the quotes. It didn't cure my sadness in an instant, but it did start me down the path to attitude adjustment. One of my friends keeps reminding me that I only have 2 chemo treatments left. That is totally something to celebrate, but I haven't been able to keep my mind off the side effects of the treatments. I'm going into my next treatment (on Thursday) with the thought that this treatment will not treat me nearly as badly as the last. If I have to repeat that to myself during the whole 5 hours, I will.
I am sick of being sick, yes, but, at least in my heart, I know that "sick" is almost over.
Wish me luck!
