I enjoyed a relaxing morning, catching up on my DVR shows and enjoying my favorite news show CBS Sunday Morning. Rafiki and I had had some snuggle time, Heather was able to sleep in, and I was able to get some down time totally relaxing and not thinking about work or cancer. It was nice!
It was chilly today… so Heather suggested we head up to the gym and walk the track around the perimeter (every lap is 1/9 mile). I took another shower before we headed out … and was much calmer today from Saturday. I even tried some scrubbing of my scalp to see if there is anything I can do to help the progress. I'm not a big fan of the spotty hair sections. I will admit, the white white white skin under my hair is rather funny against my normal tanned face. Heather jokes that my scalp has never seen the sun, given how think my hair is. Since I was born with nearly a full head of hair, she may be on to something =)
The gym was great! I was a bit self-contious going there with my head wrapped in a scarf. Heather was great support and even knew how to wrap it in a way that made it stay still, cover what it needed to, and still help me feel comfortable. Days like yesterday and today, I don't know what I'd do without her amazing support! We walked until we both met our daily goals… Heather 10,000 steps and me 6,000 steps. By the end of the day, I made it to 9,200 steps, 3.96 miles, and 62 active minutes. Yes! Heart health is important! Not to mention, I still have a wedding dress to fit into by August 16th. No way this girl is gaining the average 5-10 lbs during chemo… instead, I'm dropping it.
After the gym, we went to the Public Market to pick up a few goodies for the evening. It was another difficult moment for my ego, and feeling like an outcast in my scarf. I know I will get over this quickly, but am sad it's hitting me so hard. Since when do I care what I look like? Oh well … nothing to stress about, but learning a few things about myself.
Sunday Funday ended with a visit from David Dann for a movie night. Heather was like a kid at Christmas as we watched Frozen. It was a wonderful evening… and also lovely to see David. I didn't know the soundtrack, but Heather and David sure did. Each song, I would look over and both Heather and David were mouthing the words and silently singing the songs like they were in the movie … so cute! What a wonderful way to end Sunday Funday!
Last great news of the day… the Milwaukee Scylla won Nash Bash, a women's rugby tournament this weekend. I was so bummed I couldn't join them this weekend, but so proud of them for starting the Spring in kick-ass form. Not bad for a team who still doesn't know what the grass looks like yet this Spring. Love you ladies! I am soooooo proud of you and wish I could have been there!
