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 7

It's been a week, let's see how I am doing - My Food Diary.

OK, so I have some work to do. But today was not an ordinary day. We had a playdate at the park this morning, and then 2 birthday parties this afternoon.

A bit hectic for me, and my daughter was exhausted this evening, but we had a great day.

Of course lots of fun at the park, and the play area at Chik Fil A. But the last party of the day had a big blow up water slide! She was up and down that slide for like 2 hours, then was passed out before we backed out of the driveway.

Even though I don't list them all, just know that along with the
Advocare Spark and Meal Replacement Shakes and Muscle Gain, I am taking my daily supplements in my Metabolic Nutrition System, along with Amplify AT, Anti Aging Formula and Catalyst. I take extra OmegaPlex and FiboTrim to control my cholesterol ( I have dropped 40 points this year without a prescription!). I had a bone density test and found out that I am borderline osteopenia. So even though my Meal Replacement Shake is loaded with Calcium, I also take Calcium Plus.

Tomorrow I will begin adding Commit2Fit Life Habit 2 - eat several small meals throughout the day. Makes sense. Like when we were kids. That's how my 3 year old daughter eats.

There's a little more to it - How many meals? How often? How many calories?

That is something that you will find out when you come to the meetings. Or you can
email me to learn more.
