I'll never capitalize cancer

I have alot going on in my life, more than just cancer and chemo. Sure it's a big part of my life right now, but it's not the most important part of my life. You will never see me spell it with a capital "c".

I'm a Wife and Mom. I love my Family. I have good Friends. We do fun stuff and dumb stuff and sometimes we argue and then we laugh again. We go to work and to the grocery store and we go swimming and have birthday parties and get ready for the first day of school.

I keep saying that I don't want ovarian cancer to define me, but sometimes I just can't help it.

A good friend put it this way for me "cancer may be defining your life for the moment, but it is not your entire life. You seem to just make time for it." That made me feel better.

If you want to see it from the beginning, my cancer story begins in March.

The rest of my story is happening now.

Commit2Fit Day 12

It's a work day, so it's easy to stay on track with My Food Diary and I had my 12 cups of water. My daughter is out of school for the summer, so there is a chance for distraction. But she has some new Barbies and is pretty busy in the other room. Even the bird is quiet.

Ohp - I see some laundry that needs to be done ... and I think we should take a walk and go to the bank.

I didn't eat that much today, but I can see where I can really rack up some junk calories. I am doing OK. Afterall, I have lost 7 pounds. But notice I haven't mentioned anything about exercise? That's because I haven't really done any.

There - I said it. I'm not proud of it. Hmm - I'll start ... Monday ... No, it's a holiday ... gym's closed ... Tuesday ... Wednesday's my birthday ...
