So the other day (the today post) I woke up depressed. In fact it has happened three days in a row now. When I called the Case Manager she said I needed to go outside and breathe in fresh air. She is in AZ much easier said than done than in the Inland Northwest. However I took her words to heart. I needed to shake the funk. So I poured my bowl of Grape Nuts and went out on my cove to breathe in the fresh air. Then I thought, hey I can do calf raises while I eat my cereal. Adventure one.
I counted as I did them. 50 that was easy do lets do 50 more. It felt so great to do some type of exercise!!!! Side note, I am still sore today. Getting out of bed is more challenging than it already was. I have to wait for the boobs to balance out now I have to wait until I can put weight on my legs too!
Went out to breakfast with my little family of four yesterday. I was craving good hash browns. I can not make hash browns. This is a true fact. So texted my son and his lady and we met up for breakfast at the local greasy diner. It was a wonderful breakfast. We talked and talked and very little of it was about my health. It was what I needed.
It was the first time I had eaten out since Jan. 14th. Adventure two.
Went to the local organic health food store for grocery shopping after breakfast. I found fruits and veggies and organic meats. First time for grocery shopping since the surgery.
I actually made dinner that night by myself. Adventure three.
Signed up and started studying for my Weight Management and Behavioral Changes via ACE Fitness (that is who I have my group fitness license through) I am already on Module 6 out of 9 so I am nearly done. Next certification is going to be Nutrition within my scope of practice. I am very excited to work this into my online groups and possibly into my workout classes, whenever I will be allowed to workout again.
Studying and planning. Adventure four.
Seeing the Oncologist for the first time after surgery. He will decide what treatments, if any I will need to do now. I have no idea what will happen.
Totally in the dark. Adventure five.
Dying my roots today. Groots is what I actually call them. You know gray roots. Get it? also updating my pink. I always have pink in my hair. I think it is important and it is even more fitting now. This means I will be taking my second shower since surgery. This is still a challenge.
Dying hair and shower with a pit shave. Adventure six.
What kind of adventures are you enjoying/hating? I would love to hear about them. Post your comments or share your thoughts. Any interaction I get always brightens my day.
Love an adventure. You can find them anywhere.
