Gym rat I am not, but . . .

29 Apr

Well, I went to the gym today – for the first time in a very long time. I have been exercising – walking mostly. But, this was the first time back into the gym in quite a while. Now that I am off of Herceptin, my white count should be on the way back up and so I figured it was time to get back into the gym . . . can’t use a low white count as an excuse anymore . . . YAY!

I made it through a one hour class without passing out, so that is good 🙂 Woo-hoo! (I did not expect to pass out, I am just kidding). Still, I was not sure if I wanted to brave a whole hour at someone else’s pace. But, I got through it fine.

It is so wonderful to feel stronger. I dread the post surgery weakness and recovery as I am just getting used to having some energy again, and I really like it. But, I figure the more I do now, before surgery, the more quickly I will get back to things after surgery. That is the plan anyway.

I am very excited to be on this end of things.

Now the rest of my day will be dedicated to medical stuff (scheduling pre-op stuff and getting my place ready for after surgery – lots of chores to do) and fighting my stupid landlord. Fortunately, I have someone to fight on my behalf. So, that is good. I just have to get everything I can get done before surgery.

Here’s to a beautiful sunny day, it is beautiful outside today!

Love and peace,

Lisa
