I have lost 7lbs! go kim
New fish tank! Right now we just have a bottom feeder and 2 African Dwarf Frogs but we are going to get some more fish tomorrow. The frogs are awesome. We bought everything on clearance at Petco. Pretty rad.
Russ and I ran our 5K today and it was awesome. We arrived in downtown SD at 6am and jumped on the shuttle. It took us to the start line and we froze outside waiting for the race to start. Eventually it started at 7:15a. We were in the last wave of people and we started out strong! I ran the entire time and we finished the race in 43 min 50 sec! There was a bunch of people behind us still, which was awesome because I seriously thought I was going to be the last one. haha.. It was great and we even got a finisher medal. so great, can’t wait to do more!
Well, it’s the Friday before my 5K.. Russ and I ran together at Lake Murray. We jogged the first 3 miles and then got caught in a rain/hail storm. It was soooo crazy! huge chunk of hail were hitting us like crazy. It lasted a while and we were soaked. We walked the 3 miles back. Afterwards we macked down Pita Pit. So bomb! excited for the running expo tomorrow and then of course the race on sunday. yeah!
Ran around Lake Murray again today. I actually was able to jog the entire 3 miles. how awesome is that? At the end I stretched out and then continued the jog back. I took 5 minutes to hunt down a drinking fountain at the little league field but afterwards I jogged the entire way back. I am really proud of my progress! The funniest thing happened, this old guy was riding his bike in the opposite direction and as he passed me he held out a cup and asked me if I wanted any peanuts. “No thanks, i’m okay” ahhhhhh it was weird. I kept checking back to make sure he didn’t turn around. So creepy! haha.
I’m really slow so I hope that I can finish this race on Sunday.. As a pre-race treat I redeemed some points and got a discounted, pink hydros water bottle. awesome!
Received wonderful scan results today from Dr. Sinclair. No signs of cancer! There is still a small spot on my liver but he thinks it’s a cluster of dead cells. As long as he sees no growth he is happy. I am staying on my same treatment plan (tamoxifen, herceptin, zometa) as a backup in case there is microscopic cancer cells that the scans cannot detect. He said I can stay on these drugs as long as needed to live a long and happy life. I’m very lucky and very freakin happy. I’ve been living a normal life since ending chemo back in november and these scan results make me feel good that I’m doing something right. I’m going to keep trying my best to stay healthy and happy.
Over this past weekend, Russ and I went on 2 hikes. On saturday we hiked around the lake where we later went fishing. It was fun and it kept my heart rate up. We went in the morning so it wasn’t too hot yet. Afterwards we went fishing for a few hours and then BBQ some healthy tuna, brocolli, and bell pepper. so BOMB. We fished a little afterwards too before heading home.
On Sunday we went to Mission Trails, and hiked around the lake. Then we hike down to the Old Mission Dam. We took the 1.2 mile grasslands loop hike which was SO fun. Afterwards we went to the visitor center and walked around there. We looked through the viewers and saw these 2 people meditating on the edge of these high ass rocks. it was nuts. Behind them there was a guy who was rock climbing. SO COOL! We went to a BBQ at Jane’s afterwards and I kind of pigged out because I was starving but I definately could have ate more so I was proud of myself. We left there and went to SeaWorld to walk around for a couple hours. So overall we were very active this weekend and we are planning to hike every weekend to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Except this weekend because it’s our 5K race! ahhhh :)
double blisters from running at the gym today. trying my OLD shoes tomorrow.
