2 weeks ago today I had my first chemo treatment. It feels like a lot longer than that. My next treatment is a week from today. They told me I would slowly feel better between sessions. To be honest, I can't imagine feeling better. I'm at the tail end of recovering from the cold, but nearly back to normal from being sick and feeling normal pre-chemo. They say the chemo will catch up, as it has a cummulative impact treatment to treatment. Still, I never thought I'd feel this good! I'm confident the fitness and diet are helping. Can't stop, won't stop! (That's a shout out to my Milwaukee Scylla Rugby family).
The leak in the ceiling has stopped, granted it got cold again and hasn't been above freezing since. The guy who works for the roof repair company, Izzy, is a doll. Heather talked to him about my condition and he's been super supportive about getting the diagnosis of the leak done ASAP and then also the repairs. It's amazing the support we've had ... from everyone, everywhere.
Today was another great day at work. It's so much easier when I'm feeling better. This week has really been pretty awesome ... feeling great, and getting a lot of great work done. Fingers crossed I end the week strong tomorrow.
The absolute best part of the week has been the fitness success we've had. Granted, Heather has kicked my butt and worked out every day ... she walked 20,000+ steps today. She's obsessed with the goals she's set on her Fitbit. It's been pretty awesome to watch. I'm not the rock star she's been, but I'm super happy that I hit my 10,000 step goal today (second time this week) and walked 4.75 miles. We've also made some great changes to our diet. Heather never ceases to amaze me in her ability to pick up new recipes. Her most recent accomplishment is a zucchini faux pasta with an avacado pesto chicken sauce. No carbs and no diary and it's super yummy! This is right up there with the Larb Gai and Mole chicken on a bed of roasted cauliflower. Noms Noms!
