My workout included 45 minutes around the Rochester Athletic Club (RAC) indoor track and 5-10# weight exercises.  Followed by stretching.  I spent the rest of the day reading and resting. Prior to my workout I had an appointment to get my “menopause” shot. The injection decreases the chances that my ovaries will be damaged by the chemo. My scabs are coming off from my incision with hair follicles so they look like little bugs. I would like to show a picture, but I figured that would gross some people out.

My day started with Illinois Machine Shed restaurant for breakfast ended up taking ¾ of my meal home.  Then I went back to my mother’s house to do yard work. I spent time trimming bushes, trees, and pulling weeds to the best of my ability. Next I went to my Cousin’s house so my Mom could pick up her phone books which she had picked up from my Mother’s porch. We spent about an hour talking. Went home for a while and then I went to Linos Italian restaurant. Came home and finished the yard work. Started reading another book and finally went to bed.

Worked on my blog and went to the RAC for a workout. My workout is standard 45 minute walk on the indoor track and 5-10# weights. Today I added some 1 arm KB swings with a 9# KB. Stretch I keep reading how it is important to exercise while in treatment.  After my workout, I went to Home Depot to pick up some flowers to plant in my garden.

Today I went to visit with a pastor at my church which I abandoned when it abandoned me several years back. I consider myself Lutheran but that religion was only my upbringing. I am not Christian anymore. I consider myself agnostic and draw in bits from several different religions. At the meeting I was asked to come to the contemporary service, I guess I will give it a try.  After the meeting with the pastor at church, I went to the RAC for my WOD which was pretty much the same as yesterday. Today my right hamstring was tight for some reason. Went home to my chemo medication, that came via UPS. Then I planted my flowers with the help of my Mom. Stayed up late listening to Coast to Coast AM replays.
