I am working on consistency. The last two hospital stays kicked my butt and we only have a few more chemo admits until we have a break for the summer. Our "break" consists of only clinic chemoes, which can be tiring, but no overnight stays, and that makes us happy! It will be a time of rejuvenation, revitalization, and re-energizing, of body, mind and spirit. We had a wonderful birthday weekend, which of course I am working on blogging. I REALLY need to SCRUB my poor house before I can do that. I wish summer was here year round. Lots of people L.O.V.E. the four seasons, um, I am a Southern California girl, born and raised, and I am perfectly with Spring and Summer year round. The sun, the warmth, it energizes me, it motivates me. I think I would be thin if it was sunny and warm all of the time. I want to run, I want to eat healthy, I want to play with my kids outside. I want to bike, swim, and ZUMBA! This new energy gives me hope for good things to come in our crazy life. I was working on losing weight after having a baby when Spencer was diagnosed and unfortunately I have already gained weight back. I was talking to a nurse last stay and she said lots of parents leave in the morning to go running. Why didn't I think of that? Probably because I don't like to leave Spencers side but she said "parents need to stay healthy to take care of these kids and if leaving them for an hour to go running is what they need to do then we understand." My valid excuse has been that I have no time. Things are going to change. I need to make some time to take care of myself so that I can continue to take care of my Spencer and my family without "hurting" myself physically and mentally. I have been thinking about starting Jillian's online program. Has anyone tried this? Thank you for letting me make a side note, an energized thought, to express the goals I have for myself. Writing them to you makes me accountable. I want to feel physically happy for Disney World next summer, and I want to live a healthy for my children. I am going to take the next few days to work on cleaning my home before our next hospital visit. I will do my best to continue to blog in between. I have a whole wonderful weekend of birthday bliss to blog!
