Hello my good people! How is everyone doing ? How are we surviving this global pandemic?I feel like I am always writing that I am back. So , here I am . Not giving up. Still swimming, still moving forward.
I know a lot of you have joined me on this journey since the beginning and I am so grateful. But for those just joining us, lets recap:
2013 – started weight loss program – working out on a regular basis – lost about 30 lbs during
2014 – Halloween – found lump and started my Meganitis journey trying to find diagnosis and treatment
2015-2017 intermittent time in the gym , struggled with intense pain and exhaustion
2018 -June had sleeve gastrectomy surgery
2019 – May started Rituaxan infusions
2020- November – back into the gym
Along the way , dealt with the pain and discomfort of Meganitis, making life much more difficult.
So, here I am.
I’ve come a long ass way and there is so much further to go. I am very excited to report that I have found a new gym! It has been really difficult to find a program, that is what I am looking for and works with my schedule. I have been very lucky that I have been working this whole pandemic so I had to find something that I could do after work . I was on my way home from work and I saw a sign like 5 minutes from my office.
The gym is called Pulse Fit. I am really enjoying this program. I contacted the owner and had my free introductory class. Kicked my ass! And I loved it! It a circuit training program with the movements changing everyday. It is super fast paced,but I am starting to catch on ( I think) I just try my best. Honestly, I am terrible at 75 % of the movements but I do the best I can and I am happy with that. I like that it is short intervals of everything,like 2-3 mins, cause that’s about as long as I can last lol. Class is an hour long. I am a dripping sweaty mess and its awesome. I am dying during class, but its a welcomed death.
I am really hoping this is the catalyst that gets me under 200 lbs. A whole new world has opened up since I started my infusions. It sucks I have to spend the day in the hospital every 4 months, but, 100% worth it to feel good.
I am happy and am confident that I am moving in the right direction.
