Freedom!

So after being sick for eight days, I was finally able to run again! I was a bit nervous, it had been eight days since my last run. I thought I had done pretty well last time and felt like this week of illness would be a total set back for me. Today was day…

Sick and shoes!

So I’ve been sick for the past four days and haven’t been able to bring myself to work out. It’s awful, I hate it!! No work outs, no running!! My 5K training has come to a standstill. Ugh. Luckily, the morning I started feeling sick I managed to get in a 2 mile run/walk along with…

Updates, updates!

When I started on this journey eight months ago, I was wearing a size 12, or was it 14? Who knows at this point. I also used to wear clothing a little bit too big because a.) I hated my body so much and b.) I just didn’t really know how clothes were supposed to…

The Verdict is in

The Doctor called yesterday to tell me that my biopsy came back Cancer Free, Good news !! But, there is still something funny going on and since she did cut out the surrounding skin, that area will not develop into anything else. I can’t remember the name of what she called it, but the paper…

The Doctor Says…..

I went back to the Doctor yesterday to have my stitches removed after 10 looooog days of no exercise !!! I did manage to do some minor forms of exercise without stressing my leg. Biopsy results are not back yet, ugh….the waiting game. Celiac and all other tests are normal, of course ! But I am…
