Different Weekends

I have a feeling that my weekends are going to take on a whole new meaning for the next 6 weeks.  I usually see the weekends as a time to plan something fun, go somewhere different, and of course, eat somewhere good!  But now I think they will consist of time to sleep in, spend time with my family, and leave the house as little as possible…lol!  I have only been in STL 3 days this week and I am pooped!  Starting next week it will be 5 days/week…sheesh! 

I was beyond exhausted last night when I went to bed, I slept until 9am this morning…I can’t remember the last time I slept until 9…I know, sad right?!  I woke up feeling MUCH better and rested, but I still don’t want to do much.  I did get on the treadmill this morning and did a 5K, 3.1 miles of a nice easy run/walk and that made me feel good.  I need to find a good balance of not doing too much but still doing enough these next couple of months.  Because, as you probably have experienced at one time or another, if you do nothing but lay around all day that’s all you’re going to feel like doing, but if you do too much you’re not doing yourself any favors either.  So I need to find a new happy medium for the next 6 weeks!  I’m sure I will figure it out as it goes on.  But as I keep reminding myself every day, it is only 6 weeks…not forever.  This is totally doable.  Period.

radiation

 

BTW, this is what my radiation “machine” looks like.  Kinda like a big water faucet, huh?  Completely painless and VERY quick.  My treatments take about 5-10 minutes.  WOOHOO! 

 

 

Well I am off to watch some BASKETBALL!!  North Carolina plays today at 445pm so I am looking forward to that game very much.  But my bracket is looking pretty sad with all the upsets yesterday!  Have a great weekend friends!

I'm so glad your treatments are easy even though the trips to St.L are time consuming. I'm sure you will be able to find a good balance of activity for the next six weeks, hopefully it will be over before you know it. Have a great day! p.s. I somehow have all 16 of the Sweet Sixteen teams right!
