Sorry for the long delay in blogs. I live in BFE and it costs a small fortune to get the internet in the area where I live, and I refuse to wait in line behind pre-teens at the library to use the computer long enough to log on and then back off again.
My surgery went really well. It was all over very quickly and the pain wasn't horrible. I feared for no reason. I was off my pain meds by day 3 post op. My doctor is really impressed with my recovery and I am back at work 2 weeks earlier than expected. At my follow up the doc let me know how happy he was that we made the decision to treat this aggressively. The cancer had already gotten to my uterus. Now I get to go in for 3month physical exams so the doctor is going to become best friends with my female parts. Good times. It's better than the alternative though. Besides, every woman needs a good man in her life right?!
I found that daytime television sucks while I was off work: Tyra gets annoying and Maurry is just stupid...and what's with all the judge shows? I don't get it. I did re-establish my relationship with my son, my dog, bully. He loves me more than daddy now. (we are sick people and treat our dog like our son...it is a good thing we can't have children because we would say things to our child like, "Daddy doesn't love you as much as I do, he doesn't give you treats and take you for rides." We are messed up individuals.) He didn't tear up the house like I had forseen upon my return to work, which I was thankful for.
I started going to the gym again...my old, original gym from when I was 17. I'm excited and already feel better. I feel at home there and get to see my old lifting partners and an old boyfriend that gives me great motivation. I want to lose 40lbs. at least 20 by my little brother's graduation from basic training. I don't want to be the fat sister anymore...my brother lost weight, so can I, damn it! I just have to get cleared from the doc to start running...he thinks I am over-zealous, but I figure, I will know when I am doing too much, so I lift more than he has cleared me to and am back to shrugging 150lbs (I used to do 220) and benching 115 ( I used to do 145.) Squats are a different story, I am a weakling there, but did leg press 220...I was way impressed with myself, but squats are still at 60lbs. Oh well, one day I will be the lifting goddess that I used to be. I have my bikini sitting on my dresser for motivation. I only wore a bikini one summer, mainly because my mom made me feel fat most my life, when I had a kickass body. Glad I got over that one before college!
So, all in all, everything is well. I am actually better than I was before and now officially period free! Take that! Haha!
