It started so innocently, I noticed an eyelash on my desk at work. What? There's another one? Very quickly I count 20...can you believe it? A year ago on June 25th, I celebrated my last chemo day, which was why last week, when I lost a good share of my eyelashes (again) I was so surprised!...I quickly got over my frustration and disappointment when I remembered how I felt a year ago. No comparison! Compared to active chemo side effects, I will take delayed lost eye lashes. (After all, isn't that why we use mascara?)
On another note...meet my new best friend!
My boss recommended a 5K plan, so last week I started training. Here is the link to the program she recommended Couch to 5K. Due to all the recent health challenges, I have revised this to a little to fit my energy, but so far so good. I just love the stop watch and it is a great motivator for me. My workout right now is stretching (5-10 minutes), walk 5 minutes, run 1 min, walk 2 min, and keep alternating for 20-30 minutes. My energy has increased a bit and back ache is slowly getting better. (someday I would love to run in the mountains--maybe over Labor day if we travel to see our children in Montana.)
