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 4

The alarm went off at 5AM - the start of a long, sugar filled day!

I had my Spark, MNS Max Ap , Catalyst and Meal Replacement Shake for breakfast. I knew it was going to be a long day, so I tossed back a couple of ThermoPlus too. But that was at 6AM. No problem, I was prepared, I had a Snack bar before I left to drop the bird at the boader, then I mixed Muscle Gain and Peaches & Cream fiber drink and had that on the road. I arrived at the event hall at 1030A. I was so proud of myself for not stopping for a fast food breakfast. I had packed some good stuff in my cooler, but it just wasn't enough.

Every booth at the event had candy or cookies, and with my cravings this week - well, I blew it! They served us lunch - BBQ sandwiches - I did not eat the bun. Somehow I thought that would make a big difference.

But I had plenty of water! A couple of the vendors were handing out cold water bottles, so that was helpful.

You will see it all in My Food Diary, give or take a few Hershey's Kisses.
