Some reason over the last two days I hit a foggy funk where my glass has not been 99% full. For those who know me and probably even those who follow this blog have learned that I am very optimistic and it isn't far fetched to think that maybe I had lasik eye surgery one day to fasten on those rose colored glasses.
Well, yesterday and today I could not find my pink tinted glasses and I had a hard time snapping out of my funk. There has not been anything specific weighing on me, I just felt blah and 6 cups of coffee, dominating water and hugging my kids couldn't get me out of it. I asked Cassie how long she gets in these sort of funks and she said that her whole pregnancy has been a funk! Oh man, I would not survive! More of a reason why Cassie is a champ.
As I was wasting away I decided that I would do the one thing I have stayed away from since starting chemo almost four months ago...excercise. Prior to starting chemo I ran in a 10k as my way of preparing my mind, body and soul for chemo. Since starting I haven't run once.....until today! I bundled up, strapped on some music and scooted down the street in the snow. It was very freeing and I felt like it gave me back some control. My energy level was also elevated after the run and the night culminated with a great dinner with some good old friends.
I don't plan on making running a habit, but I am willing to do whatever it takes to avoid losing my pink shades.
