I was supposed to go through chemo this weekend, but my doctor postponed it for next weekend after my MRI. This makes me extremely happy because with the timing of things, I was going to have a chemo weekend ON MY BIRTHDAY next month!!! Aaah! Thankfully, I won't have to go through that!
Speaking of my birthday, as many of you know, I made a goal back in June to lose 30 before 30. I liked the concept because it was catchy and because losing 30 would do me some good. Well, here I am, 20 pounds down and well on my way to 30. I have only 1 more month, and being the realistic gal that I am, I don't think I'm going to reach 30 before 30.
However, this does not bother me at all because I have discovered so many wonderful things along the way. Thanks to my awesome health coach, Erica, I have set reasonable weekly goals for myself that have completely changed our family lifestyle! I have taken on a very difficult task for a working mother of 2: I have decided to eat a minimum of 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Now, this may not seem difficult, but after having actually tried to do it, it has proven itself a challenge. It is my new lifestyle. This means incorporating some fruits/vegetables into my snacks and/or breakfast so that my dinner doesn't become a feast of veggies. We have been doing some awesome family-style workouts over the last 5 months. Bike rides, walks, and yoga. Nothing crazy, boring, out-of-my realm, or unreasonable. The main component of these workouts was fun with Adam and the kiddos. And now, I'm down 20 and I know that I will reach my goal of 30 soon. Maybe not by the big day, but definitely soon after. I'm thrilled.
