As I get closer to surgery, the harder things seem to be.
I was a little under the weather for two weeks, but even as that has past, I still find myself with minimal energy that I am having to distribute as best I can over all my usual activities. Last week, most of it went to work (major event happened), but this week I am hoping to put more to dance. I only did my private lessons last week, that was it as far as dance. I used my practice time to write out routines and clarify timing, but not doing any actual dancing.
That said, we now have a nonfecta (is that word??) of gold routines. Finished up the last one tonight. Boss told me he would like to record them all this Friday. It will be a rough recording, but he thinks we can get through them all together without any major disasters (he is so optimistic!!).
He is hoping to turn the attention to the mambo showcase routine we were working on before focusing on the test, so it should be interesting to return to it. The plan is still for me to work out choreography for a waltz showcase and I do have some ideas for that percolating a lot in my head.
I really hope I have the energy to get through the next two weeks. It is a long weekend, so I am hoping that will help. I am wondering if this is all cumulative of the fatigue of the hormone therapy. I never seem to get caught up on my sleep and to feel rested, so I can see where my ‘tank’ is gradually getting lower and lower and never filling up.
In many ways, I am looking forward to surgery as recovering I might start feeling rested again, and it may end up putting hormone therapy to bed for good. It will still be close to September before that decision can be made.
In the meantime, I am just trying to conserve my energy where I can and use it on the activities I enjoy. Pre-surgery appointment tomorrow.
Slowly checking all the boxes to prepare.
Mosre dance later this week 🙂
