First Workout in 2 Years

Today is a good day.  Today is the first time I have been able to take water aerobics since my breast surgery.  I feel so good.  My instructor was great.  She modified some of the exercises for me because of the hernia surgery.  I t feels so good to be out and moving again.  I really need to loose some weight.. I have gained over 20lbs in the last 6 months.  It is nice to feel normal again.  I plan on keeping it up and soon I will be able to use weights.  I just so excited at how good I feel right now.  I'm tired but not as sleepy as I usually am this time of day.  Thank you God for the restoration.

It has been some time since I last posted. Well since the last time I was diagnosed with a very large abdominal hernia so they had to open me up thru my last scar and fix it.  I am doing well.  I am doing well on the new cancer meds.  My daughter Nay is in the Air Force stationed in Texas for tech school.  I miss her so much but it is nice to be able to call her now.

 Life has a funny way of throwing things at you. I have new battle scars now.  They bother me sometimes.  I still remember how my body use to look 1 1/2  years ago. I have also gain a little more weight than I care to have... working on that now.  It seems like every time I feel strong again God throws something else at me.  I am starting to feel strong again, like my old self.  But this is a scary feeling because of the past year.  I am so over operations and hospitals and pain meds.

I thank God for my family, my husband has been so wonderful thru this whole journey.  He makes me feel so beautiful and loved and wanted no matter how I look or feel.  I love him so much.

I have been praying for good health and complete healing of my body. Ohh yeah dealing with menopause has been interesting.  Hot flashes are crazy. But like I said I am doing well. So I am still on this faith journey, I have my highs and lows. So I just hang on to God and enjoy the ride.
