I was sick again during practice today and had to stop 😦
but I don’t want to focus on that.
Today I want to talk a bit about my Fitbit.
As I mentioned, I had bought one to use just before I started chemo and have been pretty steady with it.
Unfortunately, when I had a bout of bad side effects 3-4 weeks ago I stopped using it so much and I realized last week it’s been a while since is ‘buzzed’ meaning I achieved my calorie burn goal for the day. That speaks to how much less active I had been during those side effects.
But I am happy to report I am back on track and I have had the ‘buzz’ almost every day for a week. Because I have been able to re-motivate myself things are looking good. Also, being off the steroids I actually have a chance of starting to lose the ‘chemo weight’ and getting passed the plateau I was at before all this started.
The buzzing helps keep me motivated.
I didn’t wear my chemo cap today to practice. I think over the weekend I decided not to wear them anymore. Doing so seems to be giving in to the cancer and pretending I am not at the end of chemo. I have hair now, I want to show it.
Tomorrow is my next lesson with boss. We will see how that goes….
