Things are well! I reduced my calcium to 675mg twice a day, taking my thyroid hormone in the morning (haven’t missed one yet!) and my Calcitrol at night until it runs out. School is going really well. I’m attending all classes and I don’t even need to nap anymore! All in all, I’m back to my usual shenanigans.
What I really wanted to tell you all about was my first gym outing! Before everything happened, I was starting to train for another half marathon in November and I was putting in about 15 miles a week. There is NO WAY I’m letting my body get used to all this down time! So, I decided to get off my butt and do some low impact stuff… and maybe some punching bag catharsis… Plus, I slept like a rock last night! I missed the gym.
On a side note- damn is my left arm tight! My left shoulder does not want to relax, so if anyone knows any stretches for a tight muscle/ nerve, please let me know! So far I’ve tried downward facing dog and a yoga band but any other input is greatly appreciated.
Today marks one whole month since I was diagnosed. Looking back on everything, I’m pretty proud of myself on being so determined. I said I wouldn’t let cancer change my life and it hasn’t! I’m also so thankful for everyone whose read my blog and supported me. I don’t know what I’d do without my support team- thank you so much everyone!
