MANY GRATEFUL MOMENTS TO COME...
Tuesday, May 26, 2020
Truth be told... April was my one year Cancer Remssion Anniversary. I can not believe it's been a little over a year since I had my last chemo treatment. I was not able to jump or run until Jan. 2020 because I had an Illiostomy bag removed August 2019. Going through chemo treatments were not so bad, for me , it was the unknown to whether my cancer would not spread anymore, since it spread from ovaries to spleen, and other areas. Since I have been in remission, I felt on the fence regarding my diagnosis since I still have to take chemo pills to ward off the cancer.
The Quarantine has been a blessing in disguise since I had to finally do SOMETHING while in quarantine, not just wait until I had to take my daughter to and from school, and do house chores. No, I wanted to accomplish something. Well, getting Physically fit has been my top priority, and SP was rediscovered. I have an internal competitive edge and love rewards so here I am proud posting my movement/new behaviors online. Sometimes it's me talking to myself depending on which team I leave comments in, but I hope one day my comments will be read and trigger a thought from another.
I am grateful for my cancer that it has brought me into reality and not taking my health for granted. It has caused people to reach out to me who I would have not met and it has caused me to be thankful to God for all the gifts he's blessed me with. My first SWEAT IT OUT work out was due to one of my challenges telling me to push my workouts. I Did & I cried becuz God gave me the strength to move past 20 mns. to jump longer on the trampoline, to keep my balance and get back on the trampoline when I lost my balance. He gave me the strength to push past the fatigue with my first kettle bell workout and the bonus videos I completed. My body got tired, and I did not have the energy to do much the next day for the first week I had the 1st SWEAT WORKOUT, but now, my energy is normalizing and I can do a little more.
We may get sick or injure ourselves, but when you have a grateful heart and think of the times we had those successful moments, it will make returning to our routines all that much better and purposeful. We need to have those "down" times, so that we can REALLY embrace our everyday moments with much Gratitude. HOPING YOU HAVE MANY GRATEFUL MOMENTS DAYS TO COME!
