I started this blog because I wanted to get revenge on a friend for beating me in a local 12K run here in town.
She likes to rub it in, in a very ‘friendly’ yet mocking way.
It was enough to make me take wogging seriously. Well somewhat seriously. Enough to sign up for 5K’s and get out and move.
It started a whole process of ‘what else can I tackle?’ thoughts. I took a goal setting course and figured out things I wanted to pursue in life. This included becoming an instructor in things other than just Zumba. In order to do that I had to become a nationally certified group fitness instructor. For me that meant ACE American Council on Exercise. I studied for months. Seriously, for months! The information was overwhelming, more that I thought. I am old and learning new things is not as easy as it used to be.
My test was scheduled on October 31, 2015. The week of the test, my grandmother was put in the hospital. I had a mammogram, a doctor appointment, another mammogram and a biopsy. I was under a lot of stress.
I get to the testing site and I am a bundle of nerves. I get signed in and start my test. The very first question I almost started crying. I had no idea what they were asking or what the answer was!! All I could think was ‘I am so screwed’
Somehow I get through the test, I hit submit and wait. I PASSED!!! Oh my goodness I passed!!! All of a sudden I feel as though I can exhale again. I didn’t realize that I had been holding my breath for so long.
Now I have a new revenge in mind. It is more internal and personal. And I have to have all my strength to fight it. The other test results have come today. And the ugly “c word” is involved. Cancer. Breast cancer.
I have a positive attitude. I have confidence in my doctors. I will beat this. I will have revenge. And in time I will get out and wog again. After all, I have another goal to reach. 🙂
