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 5

Another workday for me. That means a routine so it's easy to stay on course. Interesting how you really can notice your habits when you start keeping track. I always thought that I ate more a ton - I don't, but I sure do like my sugar!

Since I am keeping track, I am making an effort to stay away from alot of the junk in our cupboards. I actually have reached in for a box of cookies and then caught myself and pulled back. Well, maybe not everytime. But I did put it down in My Food Diary

It was my idea to start this Commit2Fit. It's only 8 weeks. I think I should be able to do this.
