It's getting pretty long though. Check it out!
I have an MRI on Monday and meet with my surgeon on Wednesday, so I should have surgery news coming up soon. I'm so antsy to get this surgery scheduled, I can't even tell you.
Also, I'm so done with having boobs. I was going to buy a ton of new bras at the beginning of the summer before my diagnosis, but bagged that plan as soon as I knew "the girls" were going to have to go. So, I've been stuck with kind of ratty, ugly, poorly fitting bras for a few months now, and I am just over it. Chest of a 12 year old boy? BRING IT!
In other news, I've started to change my eating habits. After I got the diagnosis but before I started chemo, I basically cut all processed food out of my diet and started eating between 8 and 10 servings of fruits and veggies per day. However, during chemo the doctor said to eat whatever I could tolerate. So I did. And I also took that opportunity to eat everything that I had given up and missed (read: Chipotle). Now, super fun food times are over, and I'm back to eating better. It feels good to have the energy and focus to do something good for my health that isn't necessarily medical, and I'm looking forward to feeling the benefits. Since the biggest predictor of getting cancer is having had a cancer diagnosis in the past, I never want to face this diagnosis again and think that I could have done something to prevent it. So, from here on out, I'm Team Eat Healthy. Also, I have a shit ton of candy that I can no longer eat, so if you want me to send you some, holla.
I'll also be Team Exercise soon, but I'm waiting until after surgery to start a truly regimented program.
