Holding Things Together… Barely

Back when I first started blogging about my breast cancer journey, I wasn’t writing anything that I wasn’t quite a few days (or weeks) removed from. But that has changed since then for a couple of reasons. One being, I’m all caught up now. And two, I think it’s only fair that those of you... Continue Reading →

Post-Surgery Fitness Update

Before I had my surgery, back in June, I was on a fairly regular workout routine. I was going to 9 Round 2-3 times a week and getting 10,000-13,000 steps in almost every day. I usually took a weekend day off. Or two. But was still giving a couple of my Fitbit friends a run... Continue Reading →

STIM Injections Day Two
